I’ve always been a book-loving girl. My mom always read to me before I could read myself, and once I could – I took off, reading everything in sight.

Normally, I read a HUUUUUGE number of books in a year, but with being sick so much, I haven’t felt as up to it as usual (between headaches, exhaustion, etc). Which makes my goal to read between 60 to 80 books this year sorta rough. But I’ll get there… hopefully. Eventually.

Anyway. I figured that I’d keep track of this Bookworm Challenge via blog – what better place, really? So here’s where I’m at right now:

1.) Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

2.) The Woman in Black by Susan Hill

3. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

4.) Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

5.) Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

6.) The Iron Thorn by Caitlin Kittredge

Technically, I’m not quite finished yet with The Iron Thorn (I’ve got about 100 pages left), but I’ll soon be finished up with it and move right on to my next read – hopefully, if I can get my hands on it soon, the sequel. This book is pretty freaking incredible: strong heroine, interesting and unique story, wonderful writing… I adore it. You’ll definitely see the sequel, which I believe is called Nightmare Garden, popping up on my list of books for this year. =)

So, what have you all been reading? Anything good? Anything from my list? Any coming book-to-movie adaptions? Do share!!

So, we’ve had some serious stress at home lately. Our two little dogs: Tristan (mine) and Kikyo (my mom’s), vanished. We finally got Tristan back eight days later, but Kikyo  is still missing. =/ As you can guess, life has been a bit crazy.

But, on my adventure to one of the local dog pounds to check for Kikyo and leave flyers, I ended up meeting this big baby:

People kept coming in and looking at him, but, even though he’s a pup still, he’s waaaaay too big for most people to want to take him. This poor guy was on his last days, and he was soooo sweet. Needless to say, I didn’t have the heart to say no.

He comes home to live with me on Tuesday. His name: Sirius. =)

On to other, less hairy things:

I finished up The Hunger Games, and moved on and finished Catching Fire (the 2nd book in the Hunger Games series), and am now reading the final book: Mockingjay. Definitely a series I’d reccomend.

I’m finally making an attempt at taking control of my life again: starting to make a set writing schedule again is the biggest. It’s nowhere near the big chunk of time I used to devote to writing, but it’s definitely better than nothing.

I also got a new tattoo on Valentine’s Day:

The second tattoo on my Batman sleeve. I looooove it. Not the greatest shot of it, but oh well. It’s gorgeous in person. 😉

Anyway, shorter random update post tonight. More later.
