May Updates!!


Hi everyone!

It's been a loooong while, but I'm back! :)

I'm so sorry for the lack of posting! I've been really busy until recently with end of school year stuff, but now that it's officially summer (and I've graduated! Class of 2015 ;D), I'll be able to post more often- and READ BOOKS OMG.  I actually haven't been able to read ANY books lately (except maybe stuff for school), and I'm sorely behind- BUT I plan to remedy that this summer. :)

Also, I've officially given up on the tagging system LOL. It was just taking waaay too long (I think it's been a little more than 6 months now omg, and I'm still not half way done).  I'm thinking I'll just start adding tags to posts from now on, and for the previous ones, I'll just post each link onto the Review List Tab (which I am also extremely behind in whoops).

I do have summer classes, but I don't think (well, hopefully I pray is more like it LOL) they will be SUPER intense, so I'll be around for the whole summer :).  I'm mostly going to spend the next two weeks or so stalking-errr catching up on all my blogs (:D), organizing email (if you've sent me an email a while back, and I haven't responded, I'm extremely sorry! I haven't been able to check my email consistently, and I might have missed it. If I haven't replied yet, please resend it to me. Thank you! :) ), adding links, and reading reading reading! :) After those two weeks (or so :D), hopefully (yes I have a lot of hope ;) ), I'll be able to maybe make a solid posting schedule and go from there! :)

I hope everyone has been doing fabulous (as always!).  What are your summer plans? :)

With love,
Kye :)

Waiting on Wednesday Wk 44

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by the fabulous Jill over at Breaking the Spine!:)
What I'm waiting on this week:
(phew, it's been a while since I've done one of these. ;))

Plot Blurb:
Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She's so desperate to reach the realm that she's willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.

When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he's been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world--and each other--the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe...

I don't usually read that much sci-fi, but this book sounds awesome! :) 
What are you waiting on this week?
