Her books always include tormented heroes, snarky heroines, and lots of swoon-y moments that will put a smile on your face or make your heart race. Mindy is the lover of a good romance, the underdog and John Hugh’s 80′s teen movies. When her toes aren’t in the sand or her mind isn’t in the clouds, Mindy loves hearing from readers.

I'm actually trying to limit my number of books since I actually get a better deal after Christmas but I'll pick out a few that my parents can buy me as a gift.
A lot of the book I picked were books that were released early this year or last year, but I've also notice a theme . . . I'm trying out Science-Fiction and some Crime/Suspense type of books because that is what I'm feeling to read and that is what is drawing me.
Here are some of my picks that will be on my Christimas List
The Taking By Kimberly Derting
The Naturals by Jennifer Lynn Barnes
My next thing on my List is Hallmark Ornaments . . .
I'm a crazy-obsessed Ornament girl, its almost as addicting to having a boatload of books but more expensive.
Next I'm on the hunt for the perfect NEW Iphone 4 case, my old one is wearing out and I'm also in a need of a new Ipad case. Now I'm not sure what direction I want to go for covers case for my Ipad. My current one is a Zebra cover and I've been seeing those bookish theme covers so you never know.
Then I want a Zebra heated blanket!!! I just saw this on one of my friend's FB.
I'm not really sure what else I really want or what my parents can think of to buy me . . . I'm hoping to do a big thing for my birthday if I can because I'm determine to do this theme I have in mind.
So what about you? What's on your Christmas Wishlist

Are you ready to see the official cover of Salt & Stone by Victoria Scott? I am! But you'll have to wait just a couple secons longer. First let's introduce what's Victoria's first book of her series Fire and Blood, also the title of the first book is Fire and Blood
Time is slipping away....
Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to Montana for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying—and she's helpless to change anything.
Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.
The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?
Victoria Scott's breathtaking novel grabs readers by the throat and doesn't let go.
Firs and Blood was released in February 24th, 2014
and Fire and Blood marked the first time I have ever gotten an physical ARC from a publisher.
You can find my Review here, I should also say that Fire and Blood was one of my top favorite of 2014
Now Fire and Blood is being re-released into a paperback format
Now there's a different theme for the paperpack as well the cover reveal of Salt and Stone.
What the propsed cover of Salt and Stone was this . . . A very blue theme which made sense with where the characters were going.
What would you do to save someone you love?
In Fire & Flood, Tella Holloway faced a dangerous trek through the jungle and across the desert, all to remain a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed for a chance at obtaining the Cure for her brother. She can't quit--she has to win the race, save Cody, and then fight to make sure the race stops before it can claim any more lives. In the next legs of the race, across the ocean and over mountains, Tella will face frostbite, sharks, avalanche, and twisted new rules in the race.
But what if the danger is deeper than that? How do you know who to trust when everyone's keeping secrets? What do you do when the person you'd relied on most suddenly isn't there for support? How do you weigh one life against another?
The race is coming to an end, and Tella is running out of time, resources, and strength. At the start of the race there were one hundred twenty-two Contenders. As Tella and her remaining friends start the final part of the race, just forty-one are left--and only one can win.
Salt and Stone is to be Released on the very day that Fire and Blood released in 2015. Now the new cover and the offical cover of Salt and Stone is . . . .
Here's are the link to Salt and Stone as well a giveaway!!!
