Hour 2 Challenge: Traveler’s Log -

My Creepy Journey:

Well, my travels were kind of spooking, I visited a haunted bridge in Ohio. There were many visions sounds, and eerie feelings of pain, broken hearts, and troubled souls.  I  didn't stay too long I needed to get out of there. It was just too much to absorb.  So I ran and ran... straight into a herd of zombies.... I am still fighting my way through and hope to make it quick.... I need to get to my next destination... the wicked woods, a cursed land with shifters, fairies and witches oh my. Maybe here I can finally rest for just a while before I find my next spine-tingling experience.

Top Ten Books That Have Me Waiting and Wanting and Wishing!

Top Ten is an original feature/weekly meme created here at
The Broke and the Bookish that features a great bookish top ten every week.

I can't just stick to one genre. I like them all. I tend to stick with YA most of the time but lately, I have found myself adding some adult to my TBR too. I am constantly adding to my mountainous pile of TBR books. Here are my latest "I must have now!" books I have added. 

The Butterfly GardenThe Dead ListContagion (Dark Matter, #1) If We Were VillainsCamp So-and-SoViolet GrenadeBecoming Bonnie (Bonnie #1)
