What is this thing you call "BEDA"?

Ahem. So, I'm willing to admit my failure. Yes. I failed to blog every day in August. I did pretty well in the beginning, missed a few days, got back on the horse and then completely fell off and kind of just laid there on the ground for the rest of the month. Crap.

I had the best intentions, and I could give a million excuses, but I won't. *cough* Mockingjay *cough*

Anyway, I tried. I failed. But it's okay. It did make me realize that it doesn't HAVE to be super long to be called a blog post. A picture or five, a few paragraphs...call it good. So lets hope that if any good comes from this, it's that I may be inclined to blog more often, if not every day.

On another note, Mockingjay was AWESOME. Surprising. Shocking. Angering, at times. But for good reasons.  You know it's a good book when it raises emotions, makes you care, makes you take sides and argue to the bitter end to prove your point. Wow. That is one kick-butt book.

Read it. Love it. But be prepared to have it (and the rest of the series) consume you life for a good 2 weeks. Depending on how fast you read. : )

Now. On to my next book endeavors.

This is what I am currently reading:

I love it so far. 

Next in line (and just came out today):

This is the first book in a prequel series to Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series. Which I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND. First book in that series is "City of Bones". Wicked awesome. : )

So these will consume my time for the next little while. I'm a nerd, I know.

Last note: I can't believe it's September tomorrow!! I feel like I should buy school supplies, although I have no real need for them.

Also makes me think of a line in song:

"August, die she must, 
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold; 
September I´ll remember. 
A love once new has now grown old."

--"April, Come She Will"
 by Simon & Garfunkel

Farewell, Summer. Hello Autumn and hoodie weather!! : )
