Happy New Year! Today is the first Release Tuesday of the new year! So many great books are out today.  I’m looking forward to reading Jamie K. Schmidt’s new book, Life’s a Beach, the first in her new Hawaii Heat trilogy! I got the chance to hear her read from it yesterday at Lady Jane’s Salon and can’t wait to start! What books are you most excited about?

Random Awesome Finds

Hatching Raptor CandleSource

Yesterday I came upon a very fun site, Firebox. Very much like ThinkGeek they’ve got some awesome items. Here are a few that caught my eye and might be perfect for last minute gift shopping:

  • Hatching Dinosaur Egg – As pictured above you can hatch your own raptor out of a candle!
  • Unicorn Tears Gin Liqueur – Have you ever wanted to know what unicorn tears taste like? Well now you can! While the price might be a bit prohibitive, the description of the flavors has definitely piqued my interest!
  • Fucking Strong Coffee – Perfect for writers! It’s Fucking Strong Coffee, need I say more? =D
  • Toast Heated Pillow – Finally the most adorable thing I could find! A smiling piece of toast heated pillow! All the yes!

What have been some of the fun unique finds you’ve discovered this holiday shopping season?

Nostalgia Reading

Woman Reading
Many people have books they love to go back to again and again whether it’s to re-experience the power of the story, seek comfort in familiarity, or even need a palate cleanse after a string of less than satisfactory reads. My usual go to re-reads are the Harry Potter series and the Twilight series. There are others that I enjoy rereading but those two series are my go to for comfort and nostalgia. What books do you enjoy rereading?
