Whatcha Reading?

Hi! What are you all reading this January? I'm half-way through City of Bones, and enjoying it.

And today I just picked up a book I've been waiting to read. I'm a member of RWA, and so is the author. When I found out she was going to attend the Emerald City Writer's Conference last October, I had every intention of meeting her. I even used all my raffles tickets on her basket containing a copy of this book and swag! Yet, when she walked up to my part of the check-in table and told me her name, I searched for her packet, gave her her badge, and COMPLETELY failed to make the connection that this was the same name on the book cover I'd been drooling over on Goodreads! Oh, well. Maybe next year. :)

 Here's the premise, doesn't it sound fun?

Celia Wird and her three sisters are just like other twenty-something girls—with one tiny exception: They're the products of a curse that backfired and gave each of them unique powers that make them, well, a little weird…

The Wird sisters are content to avoid the local vampires, werebeasts, and witches of the Lake Tahoe region—until one of them blows up a vampire in self-defense. Everyone knows vampires aren't aggressive, and killing one is punishable by death. But soon more bloodlust-fueled attacks occur, and the community wonders if the vampires of Tahoe are plague-ridden.

Celia reluctantly agrees to help Misha, the handsome leader of an infected vampire family. But Aric, the head of the werewolf pack determined to destroy Misha's family to keep the area safe, warns Celia to stay out of the fight. Caught between two hot alphas, Celia must find a way to please everyone, save everyone, and—oh, yeah—not lose her heart to the wrong guy or die a miserable death. Because now that the evil behind the plague knows who Celia is, he's coming for her and her sisters. 

This Wird girl has never had it so tough.

Oh! And I almost forgot to tell you. I came across these sites and they're fun. Okay, continue on your day.
How to dress like a Disney princess is here.
How to dress like a Disney villain is here.

But tell me, which page are you going to first? The princess or the villain page?


  1. I've been wanting to read City of Bones forever, but still haven't, so I hope you review it when you're done. SEALED WITH A CURSE looks really awesome, too. Wow. I love the blurb. That's a good one to remember when looking for query letter inspiration!

    1. I'll certainly review City of Bones. :)

  2. I just finished Alaskan Fury by Sara King. She's writes of dragons and angels and demons, oh my! Not usually my cup of tea, but I look forward to reading more of her work. She's self-published but not for long...very talented.

    Thanks for asking, and Sealed with a Curse, sounds about right!

    1. I'll go check out that book! Thanks for letting me know. :)

  3. Sealed with a Curse sounds awesome! I can't help but love how clever that title is!

    And ooh, you're reading City of Bones? Fun! That's one of the many books in my TBR pile right now. It seems to get nothing but praise...

    1. I know! The Weird Sisters seem like an interesting group of ladies. :)

      A friend just accidentally told me the ending to City of Bones. :( I'll still finish reading it.

  4. I loved the City of Bone book - it's definitely a good read! And now that you mentioned The Weird Sisters novel, I'm definitely picking that up. It's right up my alley.
