I am having some odd issues with blogger - so hopefully this posts! But if it doesn't, I guess I will try again.
This week has been particularly tough for me, nothing of any importance really has happened...I just feel like I have been struggling with myself, internally...and it's time to come to terms with some things and just let other things GO. You can't change the can't change what is the point? Gosh...why is it so hard to just focus on YOU and your own happiness?? 
Easier said then done...

Anyways...another weekend is coming up. Considering this was a short weekend {with last weekend being a long one} this week has gone by sooooo brutally slow. :/ Watch the weekend flies by. Stories of our life...
I don't have much time for a post right now but will be posting much more interesting things in the next little while so stay tuned. In the meantime, LOOK at this gorgeous editorial!

Not having a particularly good start to the day...well, it's not bad, but TGIF! That's all I gotta say. When I am down in the dumps you know what makes me feel better??.....

Books books books. 
Books can change your life.

How I love books! Nothing makes me happier then reading books, shopping for books, flipping through books, reading reviews on books...just...anything about books! But if you have been following this blog for a while, you will know that I am *obsessed* with books. Definitely one of my passions is reading, other then writing, animals, health and fitness. :)
There is always something to read, and I have spent the bulk of my Summer reading many books...anything from Stephen King to Cassandra Clare and then my regular old school books or recently a book on mindful meditation. You just can't run out of good books! 
You may have noticed my taste in books is completely random and all over the map. I have yet to find a blog that shares their top picks on what books to purchase and read! So therefore I am going to show you what hot new books are out there that I am itching to get my hands on and what I think you should be taking with you to the beach with this last month of Summer on the horizon. 
What are you currently reading? Let me know! 

The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson - $14.43 CAD
A YA book that sounds interesting enough to me! :)
In a society steeped in tradition, Princess Lia’s life follows a preordained course. As First Daughter, she is expected to have the revered gift of sight—but she doesn’t—and she knows her parents are perpetrating a sham when they arrange her marriage to secure an alliance with a neighboring kingdom—to a prince she has never met.
On the morning of her wedding, Lia flees to a distant village. She settles into a new life, hopeful when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deception abounds, and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—even as she finds herself falling in love.
The Kiss of Deception is the first book in Mary E. Pearson's Remnant Chronicles.
