May RAC



Book Soulmates
This was my first time ever participating in Random Acts of Kindness and OMG I loved it.  It is something that I can see myself continuing to do.  It was a lot of fun to interact with people.  I ended up receiving a total of 4 books but three were from one person and one from another.

Not Now I'm Reading
From Jennifer, over at Not Now...I'm Reading!
I got Fifty Shades of Gray, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed.  I was jumping up and down in my seat when I received her email stating that she wanted to send them.  I couldn't believe that she was going to be that generous.    Needless to say for a week all I did was read and eat.  Notice I didn't say sleep?  lol I literally had problems sleeping because I just wanted to know what was going to happen next.  Very rarely do books do that to me, so I knew I was reading something special.



  From Danielle, over at The Book Queen 
I received The Faerie Path.  I haven't started this book yet but I'm looking forward to it.  I want to get a few more of the series first.  I have this problem of when I start a series I like to have them all and read them all in order before I pick up any other book.  I don't know why I do that but call it a little weird fact.  :D


All in all this was a wonderful experience that I hope to participate in again.  I was low on funding this month so I sent out a total of 4 ebooks.   For the next month that I do it I plan on sending hard copies.   

Did you participate in RAK?  Did you blog about it?  Let me know down below in the comments.  I would love to see some links to your post about RAK if you have them.

This or That tag!

So this morning when I got up, I did my usual morning routine.  I got Aurora up, changed her, fed her then I sat down and opened and turned on my laptop.  Does any one else have a routine they do in the morning, even when they get on the internet?  Just me?  That's what I thought.  I do my emails, then Blogger, then Facebook, then YouTube.  I know, my life is SO exciting!  Anyways, in my list of updated blogs comes Arianne Cruz.  One of the bloggers that I have gotten to know over the past year since I started to follow her.  In my opinion she is one of the most laid back and honest-read that as NOT FAKE, bloggers that I follow.  Get back on topic Trellyn!  Ok, her entry for today is a This or That tag.    She found it on another blog, Paperback Treasures.  I'm glad she found it because I found it from her!   I LOVE blogging!   Ok so here it is.  This is an open tag, so if you like it please use it!  




Sunrise or sunset?
I love a good sunset, when I'm able to enjoy it.
 Half-empty or half-full?
It's always half-full.  I always try to think on the positive side.
Summer or winter?
How about Spring and Fall!
Vanilla or chocolate?
Vanilla ice cream for sure!  I love chocolate sauce though.
Outdoors or indoors? 
          Outdoors!  I was raised on 275 acres.  I can hunt and fish.  I LOVE to get muddy from riding   my four wheeler!
 
Cats or dogs?
BOTH!!!!
Being in a crowd or being alone?
That depends.  If I'm in the right place I love to be around a crowd.  But usually I just like to be alone.
Being able to change the past or living with your mistakes?
I think we all want to change the past but we all know we can't.  We just have to remember that it makes us who we are and to just go with it.
Superpower: invisibility or flying?
I would defiantly want to be invisible.  The things I could hear/learn/do.
 Hardcover, paperback or ebooks?
I love them all but if they are a series they have to match.  I can't have a few in a series be paperback, then hardcover and a couple as an ebook.  I'm OCD about that.  lol
Reading or writing?
I love to read but if I have the opportunity to write I will take it!
Typing on the computer or traditional writing on paper?
Writing.  I enjoy seeing my form.  I like the way I write.
Description or dialogue? (which is easier for you)
Description.
YA or adult books? (for reading)
Both!!!
 Let me know your answers in the comments!

Waiting on Wednesday: SecondWorld by Jeremy Robinson

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****


SecondWorld by Jeremy Robinson
Release Date: May 22nd 2012 
Publisher: St. Martins Press


Lincoln Miller, an ex-Navy SEAL turned NCIS Special Agent is sent to Aquarius, the world’s only sub-oceanic research facility located off the Florida Keys, to investigate reports of ocean dumping. A week into his stay, strange red flakes descend from the surface. Scores of fish are dead and dying, poisoned by the debris that turns to powder in Miller’s fingers and tastes like blood.
Miller heads for the surface, ready to fight whoever is polluting on his watch. But he finds nothing. No ships. No polluters.
No oxygen.
Instead, he finds a cloudless sky full of red particles dropping like snow and coating the ocean with a thick film that stretches to the horizon. When a dead blue whale collides with Aquarius, Miller begins a harrowing race to escape the affected area.  Cut off from the rest of the world and surrounded by death, Miller makes his way to Miami where he discovers just one survivor, and the awful truth: the strange phenomenon that robbed the air of its life giving oxygen was an attack by an enemy reborn from the ashes of World War II. And they’re just getting started. Miami, Tel Aviv, and Tokyo have all been destroyed. Millions are dead.
And if Miller can’t track down and stop those responsible in seven days, the rest of the world is next.
OH this gives me goose bumps just reading.  I can't wait to get this.  This book is far from my comfort zone but something about it just screams "READ ME" to me!

At Barnes and Noble it will be $16.79 with the Nook version being $12.99.


What are you "Waiting on Wednesday" for?  Leave a link if you do this weekly blog.  Leave a comment with what you can't wait to read.

The Vampire Club by J.R. Rain and Scott Nicholson



"You're making assumptions," I said.  "Perhaps they aren't part of the VVV, but really are relatives of Dial."



(Page location is hard to discern as I'm currently reading on my phone.  It says 776 of 3736.)



This book is proving to be interesting but I had a little trouble with the start of the book.  I cant wait to see where it goes.
