I don't just read a book; I "crawl" right into one.
I read, I devour, and I consume every last word until the story is running like a movie through my brain!

Gone Reading...

Well, not really. But, I would definitely rather be reading than dealing with the crud life has been dishing out lately.

Thanks for stopping by and I truly hope you've been taking the time to "Stop and Smell The Pages" because you never know when that stupid thing we call "life" will pile it all on and get in the way of all your fun!

YzhaBella's BookShelf is temporarily on hiatus. I thank you all for your readership and I hope to be back soon!

Hugs!

Alora looked back and the corner of her lip turned up. “It’s always darkest before the dawn, Julia. Good luck.”
Her words sent chills up my spine as she vanished.

Unrest stirs deep in Scotts Valley. Filled with uncertainty, Julia anxiously awaits Nicholas’ return. Phil, hurt and unsure of his place as a sober vampire, holds the pieces of Julia’s fragile psyche together, secretly hoping Nicholas stays away forever. Scarlett bides her time, plotting for the perfect moment to prove herself and earn redemption. But somewhere in L.A., Alora conspires to reclaim her talisman and strip Julia of everything she holds dear.

Little do they know, a war is coming and more than one vampire would like to see the Prince of Vampires overthrown. As more and more vampires show up from nowhere, addicted to her scent, Julia must pick her allies carefully before it’s too late. Can Julia bargain with fate? When the time comes, will she even have a choice? Find out how it all ends in this explosive grand finale of The Talisman Trilogy.

Bookish Blues

When the one activity you love becomes a bother, it's time to take a step back and reorganize your priorities.

I use to read for the pure joy of each new adventure...

Then I read to gobble up title after title, marking each of my ticks on GoodReads, and the like...

Then, like so many of us, I fell into the trap of gorging myself on endless novels, just to keep up with the blog next door...

Title after title, paragraph after paragraph, information overload and "What was that last book about"?

I realized I wasn't having fun anymore...It sucks

When blogging becomes a bore and reading becomes a chore, it's way past time to take a step back and re-evaluate the purpose of the "job".

So with all that said, I will no longer bow to the pressures of keeping up with the Jones' and commit to nothing more than reading for the sole purpose of the pure, uninhibited, thoroughly entertaining and wondrously adventurous experience it was intended for!

If I happen to write a review or two (and I am certain I will), it will be a happy coincidence and not because of any perceived obligation.
