New Year’s Resolution

December 24, 2008

I was tagged by Liv to share three of my New Year Resolutions.

Here goes:

1. Read more. Like 2-3 or more books a week.

2. Go out more and in turn make better friends. Enjoy life. Be a high-schooler.

3. Figure out what career I want to follow. I want to do something with books or forensics or both. Decide, decide, decide.   

I tag:

Carol from Bookluver-Carol Reviews.

Dominique from The Book Vault.

Em from Em’s Bookshelf.

Merry Christmas, Happy holidays, and Happy New Year!


Waiting on Wednesday (2)

December 24, 2008

I’m not the first to wait on this one, but this book deserves another Waiting on Wednesday holler.

Book: Envy by Anna Godbersen

Summary (from Harper Collins): Two months after Elizabeth Holland’s dramatic homecoming, Manhattan eagerly awaits her return to the pinnacle of society. When Elizabeth refuses to rejoin her sister Diana’s side, however, those watching New York’s favorite family begin to suspect that all is not as it seems behind the stately doors of No. 17 Gramercy Park South.

Farther uptown, Henry and Penelope Schoonmaker are the city’s most celebrated couple. But despite the glittering diamond ring on Penelope’s finger, the newlyweds share little more than scorn for each other. And while the newspapers call Penelope’s social-climbing best friend, Carolina Broad, an heiress, her fortune—and her fame—are anything but secure, especially now that one of society’s darlings is slipping tales to the eager press.

In this next thrilling installment of Anna Godbersen’s bestselling Luxe series, Manhattan’s most envied residents appear to have everything they desire: Wealth. Beauty. Happiness. But sometimes the most practiced smiles hide the most scandalous secrets. . . .

Why Do I Want It?: Because The Luxe series is super awesome and I love the story, the characters, the writing… everything that this series has offered. This new installment makes me do my happy dance.

When It Arrives: Jan 27, 2009. Mark your CALENDARS.
