Happy New Year, y'all!
A few changes here at le blog. For instance, my layout! If you're a veteran of my blog, you may have noticed that I have the attention span of a cocker spaniel and my interest varies constantly, so this is one in a string of layout changes I've made in the three years I've had this shindig. I've learned a lot in terms of HTML and CSS in the past few weeks, however, and my newly crafted talents are put into this new layout. :) I hope you all like it! Let me know what you think in the comments. :)
In life, my cat is getting declawed. She was a real terror at the vet's office when we took her in to get her shots updated. Finally, I have proof that my cat is the devil I have always claimed she is. All I have to do is point out the chunks of flesh she took out of two aids at the vet's office to convince my friends I was right all along.
I got a huge haul from the library this week! What you see below is three books short of this month's reading list for me. (I have yet to get Dead Girls' Dance by Rachel Caine and Crown of Embers by Rae Carson from the library and The Casual Vacancy is off my own bookshelf.) So behold!
The Assassin's Curse by Cassandra Rose Clarke | This one was flashing around Goodreads like they do occasionally and I saw that it was blurbed by Christopher Paolini. I read the summary and I now await in breathless anticipation for the book to live up to my expectations.
Witches of East End by Melissa de la Cruz | I read (or tried to read) Blue Bloods when it first came out a long time ago, but I couldn't get into the series because of all the impromptu fashion references. I haven't tried to read anything of Melissa de la Cruz's since, but Witches of East End caught my eye in the buzz it stirred before it came out. I haven't read a lot of witch novels that I've been impressed with, but I hope this one surpasses my expectations. :)
Poison Princess by Kresley Cole | Normally, the cover would be enough to put me off this book and the summary doesn't present much more hope for me, but hey, I'm trying to step out of my comfort zone and not judge so much. Call it a New Years Resolution.
What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang | This book blew up the blogosphere -- still is, really. So my mission is to find out what all the fuss is about.
