Words of Wisdom

I honestly don't think this needs any commentary. Marilyn was a smart lady.

Words of Wisdom

Now I know this is about acting, but I use it to think about life. I don't want to be known for one thing, and I want to make an impact in some way. I want to be a role model, a good citizen, and a good friend. I want my name to mean something special to someone long after I am gone. Who knows.

And so it begins...

So today came the realization I will not be going back to school this week, I am done. I need a job. Crap. So here is to searching Craigslist, the back of newspapers, and having to live off of nothing until I can find full time work. Why did I get a useless degree?

What I Read This Week

Title: Selling Scarlett (Love Inc. 1) by Ella James
Rating: 1 Star
From: Netgalley

Elizabeth DeVille doesn't belong at a party like this - one where the gowns cost more than her Camry and cigars run higher than her grad school utility bills. Dragged out of seclusion by her best friend Suri, Elizabeth is merely playing dress-up, rubbing elbows with a crowd that banished her troubled family years ago.

Hunter West is tired. Tired of parties, tired of pretending, and tired of trying to right a wrong that haunts him every day. Bourbon heir and professional poker player by day, by night Hunter is gambling with his life in a high-stakes game of crime and blackmail. 

When Elizabeth stumbles into Hunter's den of vices, she's a light in the darkness, a flame in the void. And, just like everything he touches, Hunter mars her in a record time. To rectify the damage done, Elizabeth needs money she doesn't have, and she's come up with a foolproof way to get it.

Follow Elizabeth - code-named Scarlett - to the lush Nevada brothel where she'll auction her virginity and risk the only thing that's not for sale: her heart. The highest bidder is a familiar face, with wicked hands and the devil's mouth. And a secret so dark that it could cost her life.

My Thoughts: ...eerm... I don't have much to say about it. I didn't like it at all. Yea...

Title: Endless by Amanda Gray
Rating: 4 Star
From: Netgalley

Jenny Kramer knows she isn't normal. After all, not everybody can see the past lives of people around them.

When she befriends Ben Daulton, resident new boy, the pair stumble on an old music box with instructions for “mesmerization” and discover they may have more in common than they thought. Like a past life.

Using the instructions in the music box, Ben and Jenny share a dream that transports them to Romanov Russia and leads them to believe they have been there together before. But they weren't alone. Nikolai, the mysterious young man Jenny has been seeing in her own dreams was there, too. When Nikolai appears next door, Jenny is forced to acknowledge that he has travelled through time and space to find her. Doing so means he has defied the laws of time, and the Order, an ominous organization tasked with keeping people in the correct time, is determined to send him back. 

While Ben, Jenny and Nikolai race against the clock - and the Order - Jenny and Nikolai discover a link that joins them in life - and beyond death.

My Thoughts: Wow, I really liked this book. I have always liked history, but had not been to interested in Russian history. This book has changed that a bit. I want to know more now. I loved the supernatural elements with this as well. The boys were both really awesome as male leading characters, and it all tied up nicely. I would love to see this as part of a series, though tied up it left itself open to future story telling. One of my favorite reads so far this year.
