Burned by P.C. & Kristin Cast

About Burned:
Zoey Redbird is the youngest High Priestess in House of Night history and is the only person – vamp or fledgling – that can stop the evil Neferet from raising all kinds of immortal trouble. And she might just have a chance if she wasn’t so busy being dead.
Well, dead is too strong a word. Stevie Rae knows she can bring her BFF back from her unscheduled va-cay in the Otherworld. But it’s going to take a lot more than hoping to bring Zoey back. Stevie Rae will have to give up a few secrets of her own . . . 

My Thoughts:
I bought Burned by P.C. & Kristin Cast (House of Night book 7) earlier this week for My Lavender Kobo. I have read all of the House of Night books and had big hopes for Burned. And boy did it live up to them! I imagine it would be hard to keep all those details straight! The story begins where Tempted ends. Zoey's spirit is shattered when she witnesses Kalona killing her human Consort, Heath. Zoey, Stark, Stevie Rae, Aphrodite and even Kalona tell their parts of the story, and I must admit that I found it a little distracting. Why change? The first 4 or 5 books were told from Zoeys point of view. BUT I did find by the end of the book that I liked knowing what Stark and the others thought and felt. Over all I was pleased with the book. And I can't wait to start Awakened!

My Lavender Kobo...

 Now that the holidays are behind me, it's time that I start sharing with the world the love that I feel for My Lavender Kobo! I received that Kobo as an early Christmas present and have completely fallen in love with it!

The Kobo comes with the Border app already installed, but I quickly switched to Kobo Books and love it so much more! No particular reason, I'm not computer savvy, not really computer illiterate. I know the basics.  I haven't figured out how to unregister my computer on ADE so I can register my Kobo. So until I figure out how that works, I will not be renting ebooks from the library. LOL!
I have read blog entries where people have deleted the 100 books that come pre-installed on each Kobo and I wonder why? They are all classics that everyone should read at least once in their lives. Ok, so the truth is, I haven't read any of them YET, but some great movies have been made from these classics.
I was so excited about my Kobo, that I immediately sat down and crocheted (yes, I am a woman of many talents!) a little fuzzy pink sleeve that it slips into, to protect it from "stuff" floating around my purse. It works well for me, and it didn't cost $39.99 like most of the ereader covers (that I liked) cost.

I love how small the Kobo is. It's 4.7 x 7.2 x 0.4 inches, it has built in WiFi and a slot for a 4 GB SD memory card! When I'm reading it is so easy to "turn the pages" and the pages! Oh, they look REAL! I wish I had a camera that wasn't attached to my crappy cell phone just so I could show you how great the pages look!
So my goal for this blog will be to keep track of the books that I read on my ereader, and also about any tips or tricks that I come across (if I come across any!).
