New Year, Same Goals

Wow it has certainly been awhile since I last posted here, hasn’t it?

The year came to end and my word count for it (At least from May 2012) was around 175, 000 words. That wasn’t too bad. For 2013, I signed up for two word tracking programs, but of course I forgot to follow the directions of one of them, so I don’t have access to the group and I don’t want to look like a fool and oh well.

I haven’t started too many projects haha. I did write a sort of apocalyptic one shot for a community that I’m apart of, that may get turned into a book/series or whatever. But since I’ve posted here I have had ideas for a few more things and I’ve done a few notes.

My word count so far for this year is at: 18,204. So things are going pretty well. Now I just need to get my personal life under control, but that’s better said than done right?

Until next time! 

The Taming of the Rake by Kasey Michaels Mini Review

I am back fair followers! Over December I didn’t read as many books as I did in 2011 because I had access to the internet and thus I didn’t pay as much attention to my books. I read 86 regular fiction books in 2012, which was just a bit short of my 2011 goal. This year I’ve set it to 70, so we’ll see how 2013 goes reading wise.

Here’s my 2nd book of the year:

The Taming of the Rake (Blackthorn Brothers, #1)The Taming of the Rake by Kasey Michaels

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book! I read the third of the series fast, so I was expecting something similar to that. But this one stood out on its own.

I loved the characters especially Puck! Oh my god Puck made me gut laugh so many freaking times like really. And then when Jack does appear, he’s as brooding as he is in own book and let me tell you, I quite enjoy a brooding hero, thank you for that Charlotte Bronte.

The end was perfect I think and although Claudia’s brother and sister were on the opposing side, I really liked reading about them and I’m glad that Francis came to his senses.

I can’t wait to read Puck’s story!
