I may not be brilliant, but I can be very ingenious.

From my writing I have noticed two things; I love saying 'I' and use but quite frequently. That doesn't really surprise me, considering the fact that I use the letter A (my form of cursing) which is the equivalent of A-S-S, quite frequently, despite my parents insisting on me not doing so. Can help it, but choose not to. Blame it on habit. Practice something enough, it's almost hard not to do.

You may never get to really know me, because I'm not too open. However, I am quite honest. There aren't many things I won't be truthful about. Has it's benefits, sometimes, but (yes, used it again) can also be a pain in my A.

Now this is what this post is about:

I have changed it, yet again. This time I have decided to put more of myself in it. More of my honesty. More of all the things I like, because, quite frankly it sucked before. If you know what to expect, then maybe you'll stick around. I'm just doing what makes me happy. Which is talking, entering contests, admiring beautiful things (not obsessing, unless it's a hot guy I know), photography, architecture (especially old homes), family and friends, art, and a bunch of other things I may not know that much about, but (again) like none the less.

By the way, I'm full of a lot of things, including myself (it shows more in my writing, not so much in my actions). I don't think I'm a B (B*tch) though. It's just that I know me, not as well as I like, still, I know myself better than practically anything else. Hopefully, that won't be a turn off.

Still No Catching Fire Arc

Didn't win any of those contests. Boy, that really sucks. Guess I might have to actually read it, after it releases.

Luckily in my depression I have found another way for someone to win an ARC of Catching Fire, the second novel in the Hunger Games series.

Here's the link: ARC Catching Fire Contest - Get moving it ends next Tuesday (June 30)

The Shady Glade book blog is also giving away an ARC of Catching Fire. Here's the link: Shady Glade Catching Fire ARC Contest.

Mainly Contests I will enter - Laptop Contest

From this point on I am going to try and focus mostly on contests. Since it's obvious this will never be a book blog, obviously.

Today I found a Asus Netbook contest at Revive Your Life (RYL). With only a 160 hard drive and 1 GB of memory, it's sole purpose will be for email, and simple browsing. It is a netbook after all, but still a nice prize.

Catching Fire ARC finds

I may finally get that ARC I've been trying to get for the past few months. It's a giveaway, by random drawing, but that's better than waiting til September 1st. I'm a subscriber to YA Reads book blog. They sent me an email, and low and behold, an ARC of Catching Fire was included in it. Not the actual book, but a link to where I might get one. At the Linus's Blanket book blog you can enter to win a copy.

What are you most looking forward to in Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games?

If you can answer this you can, possibly, win.

There is another one I have found. It's from Reviewer X book blog.
