Rambles on a ridiculously hot night.

So. It's mid September right now. I think I last posted in January. So, that's a total of about nine months since I posted last. I swear, I'm so bad at this. I don't even know why I have this blog. Oh, wait! I know. Because I like having a place to spout all the random things in my head.

One of which is this: why on earth is this September so warm? I come from northern Alberta, which in case you don't know, is usually cooling off by this time of year, and the first snowfall hits about late October, usually around Halloween. I moved out here in March 2012, and even having lived here for almost exactly eighteen months, I still haven't quite adjusted to the temperatures. So, this is still kind of new to me. Yesterday - it got up to 31 C, and I'm sure today will have been just as warm. I sort of feel like I'm melting. But, I guess this is just an excuse to have a nice cool bath, and read a good book.

Speaking of good books: last week, I got the new book from Sherrilyn Kenyon - Styxx. For those who are fans of the Dark Hunter series, you most likely already know about Styxx and why it's so important to the series as a whole. For those who might not, I'll give a brief rundown of the series as a whole. So, the series is a paranormal romance series. Which means vampires, werewolves and gods, oh my! *chuckles* It's a highly interwoven series, but, you don't need to read all the books in published order to be able to understand it. I certainly didn't, and I fell in love quickly with it. The Dark Hunters are a group of immortal warriors created by the goddess Artemis, in order to fight and curb the race of "vampires" known as Daimons. The latest book, Styxx, is a sort of companion book to Acheron. They are both major books in the series, and if you're only going to read a couple books from the series, you should read those two. I got the last copy of the book in my local bookstore, and I read the entire book - all 800 and so pages - in about six hours. Which is on par for my normal reading speed. Which, according to my fiance, is a little scary.

Now, I could ramble on about what I've been doing these last months, but honestly, I haven't done a whole lot. I read a bunch of books, read a TON of fanfiction, listened to music (obviously, lol!). Which is basically my every day list of activities.

You know, every time I say "activities", I think of Step Brothers, and the scene with the bunkbeds and whatnot. Makes me laugh. *smiles*

So, what's coming up in the future? Most likely a lot of the same things I've been doing. But, I do hope to get more into blogging, about pretty much everything. Read a book? Do a review post. Buy something new in the makeup/nail polish category? Do a review post. Try out a new recipe? Blog about it.

Speaking of book reviews...I do think I'll start that off with reviewing Acheron and Styxx, together, as they should be. Which should be fun to write about.

So, on that note, I'll end this post here before I ramble on too much longer. I hope to be back within a few days with a lovely review of those two wonderful books.

Love you all, and talk to you soon! <3
