Follow Friday #6

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Parajunkee's View, her featured blog this week is Marla from Starting the Next Chapter, make sure you check her out and don't forget to follow follow follow.

FF featured question: Keeping with the dystopian and apocalypse theme that seems to be running rampant on, I have one very hard question for you: If you were stocking your bomb shelter, what books would you HAVE to include if you only had space for ten?

Endings (when I'm singing in the car)

This is a toughy.

1. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein - teaches you to give unselfishly

2. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - teaches tolerance and love

3. The Bible - a world altering piece of literature, in my opinion, whether you are religious or not this book is very important

4. Homer's The Iliad & The Odyssey (in one book, it counts) - shows there is more than one way to believe & has very important literary themes

5. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (again one HUGE book) - source of history as well as a source of every possible literary theme/life lesson you can think of

6. The Lorax by Dr. Seuss - teaches us to take care of our planet

7. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine - a fairy tale with a strong heroine

8. This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen - it's about love, about how no matter how scary it is love is worth it

9. The Inescapable Presence by Arvid E. Anderson (My Grandpa) - this is obvious

10. Prom Dates from Hell (Maggie Quinn: Girl vs Evil #1) by Rosemary Clement-Moore - because I love this book and her.  It's the amateur sluth Nancy Drew/Veronica Mars meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer but with Demons. I couldn't decide between Harry Potter or The Hunger Games then I realized that everyone will be rescuing those, which means they will be available, so why not save something obscure and fun.

If given more space for more books I would also save: The Strange Angels Series by Lili St. Crow, the rest of the Maggie Quinn: Girl vs Evil series, John Winchester's Journal, The Psychic Eye Mystery Series by Victoria Laurie, The Hunger Games Series, Harry Potter Series, Jane True Series, all of Dessen's Books....pretty much my entire book shelf which, now that I think about it, I could fit on my nook, so I would just sneak that in with a very good generator.

 Happy Friday Everyone!!

Awesome releases to geek out about

The cover for If I Die (Soul Screamers #5) by Rachel Vincent has been released and it's absolutely fabulously beautiful! I am so excited, I can't wait for September 20th! Can't wait to find out what finale Vincent has written for this awesome series.

Chills and goosebumbs! The newest trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is out and I am just blown away.

I remember reading the first book back in middle school (I believe) and for it to finally all be over this summer, books and movies, it's just mind blowing. I've spent years falling in the love with these characters and this world Rowling created and for it to finally be over is a very bittersweet feeling.

Can't wait for July 15th.

Also Sarah Dessen just debuted the TV spot for her newest book What Happened to Goodbye (release date May 10th - it's so close!!) Check it out: or

I am totally geeking out!!!

TV Show News to geek out about

I know this site has been around for a while but I just discovered - your source for anything and everything tv shows - and because of this discovery I just learned that The CW will premiere the pilot for LJ Smith's The Secret Circle this fall.  I am totally geeking out here!!! Vampire Diaries was the first of her series that I had read but The Secret Circle is definitely my favorite.  You must read these, especially if you love TVD.  I wonder if they will ever base a TV show/movie off of The Forbidden Game?  That would be SWEET!

Check out this article from among others that discuss the cast and much much more. So excited!!

The CW also announced the Season 3 renewal of The Vampire Diaries. Woot Woot! (

But most importantly from this awesome site comes the news that The CW has renewed the best show on TV Supernatural for it's 7th season.  For die-hard fans, such as myself, this is even more exciting that The Secret Circle.

Want to read the article? Here you go:

Today was a very good day :o)

Follow Friday #5: Happy Earth Day/Good Friday

First I'd like to say that I am back. I know I fell off the face of the earth for a couple months there, thanks to work and life stress I have had to put this blog on the back burner, but I'm gonna do my best to catch up on what I missed and keep this blog rolling like it was.  Now back to your regularly scheduled Follow Friday post.

FF featured question: What is on your current playlist right now?

Currently I am listing to a Pandora station that includes The Maine, Jimmy Eat World, Blink 182, New Found Glory, The Ataris, We The Kings, etc. but my personal life Playlist consists of:
  • Jimmy Eat World - Praise Chorus (my theme song)
  • Leana Womack - I hope you dance (when things get tough)
  • Nelly - Err time (when I need to dance it out)
  • New Found Glory - Hit or miss or My friends over you (when I want to live in the past)
  • The Ataris - Boys of Summer (when I'm stuck in the office but want to be on the beach)
  • Stars - Look-up (when I'm day dreaming)
  • All American Rejects - Happy Endings (when I'm singing in the car)
  • Plain White Tees - Jessie's Girl (just because it's awesome)
  • The Maine - Everything I asked for (again in the car singing)
And I could go on and on and on and on......

 Happy Friday Everyone!!
