My Promised Vlog

Here is my vlog !! I really hope I didn't creep you guys out ):

[Tuesday To-Read] Issue 11

Tuesday To-read is a list of books that I am continuously adding books onto. It is my TBR pile, that is virtually growing.... every week. To see past Tuesday To-Reads, just look on the side bar for the label. Without further delay... this week's to-read is......

Taste by Kate Evangelista

At Barinkoff Academy, there's only one rule: no students on campus after curfew. Phoenix McKay soon finds out why when she is left behind at sunset. A group calling themselves night students threaten to taste her flesh until she is saved by a mysterious, alluring boy. With his pale skin, dark eyes, and mesmerizing voice, Demitri is both irresistible and impenetrable. He warns her to stay away from his dangerous world of flesh eaters. Unfortunately, the gorgeous and playful Luka has other plans. When Phoenix is caught between her physical and her emotional attraction, she becomes the keeper of a deadly secret that will rock the foundations of an ancient civilization living beneath Barinkoff Academy. Phoenix doesn't realize until it is too late that the closer she gets to both Demitri and Luka the more she is plunging them all into a centuries old feud.
I found out about this book through other various blogs and decided to add it onto my TR list. It also seems to be a love triangle.. and I'm a COMPLETE sucker for those (:

Very heavy fog on the highway to Calgary.

We could hardly see the road in front of us.

Clouds in the mountains.

Lake Louise

Books Received

Funny thing about how I got Night Road and Bright Young Things. I was at an Indigo in Calgary, and picking up some books. Next thing I knew, both my uncle and my other aunt were RIGHT beside me. I knew they were going to try and pay for it, so I quickly asked my cousin where the cashiers were. I was about to head there when all of a sudden my aunt just grabs my books out of my hands and heads off to pay. She keeps doing that ): She even got me a stuffed Eeyore which is SO CUTE.


    I said I was going to do a vlog today, but my voice has gone weird from screaming. I went to Capital Ex on Saturday with my friends, also known as the Edmonton Fair. So obviously I was screaming. Also, SIMPLE PLAN CAME TO PLAY ON THE TELUS STAGE. If you don't know already, I've been a fan for years, and I was screaming so much and singing along.
