TBR Thursday!

So fellow awesome blogger Sarah, from Words With Sarah created her own meme to help cut down on her TBR pile by, featuring a book each week that she will be reading that has been on the bookshelf for three months or more. I love this idea because that is definitely an issue I have with books sitting on my shelf for way too long.

My read for this week is

Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows #1)
Author: Kim Harrington
Goodreads Summary:

All the creatures of the night gather in "the Hollows" of Cincinnati, to hide, to prowl, to party ... and to feed.
Vampires rule the darkness in a predator-eat-predator world rife with dangers beyond imagining -- and it's Rachel Morgan's job to keep that world civilized.
A bounty hunter and witch with serious sex appeal and an attitude, she'll bring 'em back alive, dead ... or undead.

I am doing something a little different this week, I was in an urban fantasy mood and I have had this one on my shelf forever, I hope I enjoy it!

I'm Back! Update and the Bruno Mars Concert!

Hey guys, so sorry I was gone all last week, I went to the Bruno Mars concert last Sunday and then I was sick all week and I didn't get any reading done or blogging for that matter because I felt so horrible! But, my week started off amazing, I am a huge fan of Bruno Mars and I have been waiting all summer to get to go to his concert and let me just say that he did not disappoint. He is one of the best live performers I have seen in a long time, I think that he sounds better live then on his album. His band is just as amazing which only makes him live that much better. I was having so much fun enjoying the concert I didn't take that many pictures and my friend has yet to upload the ones she took were way better then any of the ones that I got, I did get a short video that I will put up also, So if you guys ever get a chance to see Bruno Mars live I definitely reccommend that you take the chance to see him because I know that I will be there everytime he goes on tour it was well worth the money! I hopefully will get back to posting this week, so I hope everyone enjoys their week!

Blog Tour: Black Moon (The Moonlight Trilogy #2) By: Teri Harman, Guest Post and Giveaway!

Goodreads Summary:

Simon Howard accidentally killed three people. Four months later, the nightmares won’t stop. Willa Fairfield, his girlfriend, his soul mate, wants nothing more than to help him move on. But guilt isn’t the only thing getting in Simon’s way. 

When unexplained earthquakes hit the small town of Twelve Acres, and dozens of people go missing, the Light witches discover their most feared enemy, Archard, is still alive. Employing the twisted, dynamic magic of a legendary witch known as Bartholomew the Dark, Archard plans to exact his revenge and take control of the Powers of the Earth on the night of the black moon, a rare lunar event infamous for Dark magic. 

As the Light Covenant fumbles to defend against Archard’s sadistic intentions, Simon’s magic grows inexplicably more powerful, even dangerous. Willa throws all her efforts into solving the mystery of Simon’s transformation, but when the events of the past storm into the present, the couple’s future changes forever

“Authors I Can’t Write Without” by Teri Harman

I am a story addict. I am addicted to reading. It is my love of reading that helped shape my love of writing. It’s symbiotic in some ways: I suck all the greatness from my favorite writers, nourishing my ability to put words on the page.

These are some of the authors that inspire me, that make me want to try harder in my writing. That make me better.

1. Roald Dahl
Such imagination! Roald Dahl taught me to twist and turn the normal into the bizarre. To stretch my creativity to mold ideas into stories that feel fresh and yet familiar in all the right ways. Favorite titles: ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,’ ‘Matilda,’ and ‘Tales of the Unexpected.’

2. Kate Morton
Beautiful, intoxicating words. Kate Morton’s writing is so amazing – her descriptions, her solid plots, her gothic sense of place. I devour her books and always want to run to the computer when I’m done. Favorite titles: ‘The Forgotten Garden,’ and ‘The Secret Keeper.’

3. Sarah Addison Allen
Sarah does steamy romance and magic realism so well. Her books are magical and her characters authentic. I love her stories and want mine to be as absorbing. Favorite titles: ‘The Sugar Queen,’ and ‘Garden Spells.’

4. Sue Monk Kidd
The queen of emotional narratives that you never forget. I want to write as honest and deep as Sue does. She captures characters and how they feel in every situation so perfectly. That is not easy. Favorite titles: ‘The Secret Life of Bees’ and ‘The Invention of Wings.’

Which authors inspire you?
