Yep, it took me long enough, but I finished another two books.  One was from work, and the other was from my Kindle reading (ironically, I tend to read on my Kindle during meals and my breaks at work - which usually include books that we DON'T sell at my work) :P

I'll start with the tangible book from my work though: Motive for Murder, by Marlene Bateman Sullivan.  It's a classic Mormon murder mystery.  The main character is a female detective who loves to cook and is annoyingly OCD (I watched Monk, OCD can be super funny and useful, but since it wasn't useful in this book, it was just annoying for this character).  The murders (or attempts thereof) were presented interestingly enough, and there were many hints and clues to multiple characters being the culprits.  This is usually good, because I definitely didn't guess who the murderer was before it was revealed, but it also left me confused....  There were so many others and not enough evidence throughout the book to bring it all together, that the final revealing felt pulled out of the hat.  Final rating: 2 stars **

The next book, I actually looked forward to reading and prolonged my finishing of other books to finish this one first.  This book was Wired, by Douglas E. Richards.  I did enjoy it a lot.  I can see why it was a New York Times Best Seller.  It was crazy, it made me THINK about possibilities, and I LOVED how much research and exploration was put into the plot.  The characters were extremes, but lovable, and the setting was minimal, but that was fine, since it was in our world.  Plot was definitely the driving force of the book, but there was a LOT of it.  Throw bio-engineering into detailed terrorist plots involving ebola, to create enhanced intelligence, "immortality," and other possible pandemics from the perspective of a loyal and quick-thinking military group going against the odds.  It's intense, and I had no idea what was coming next (okay, except the romance, that was the only predictable part... but even near the end...) and the ending throws a twist and makes you look at the WHOLE book in a new light - and I love it when stories do that.  Negative part: the swearing.  I'm sheltered, and I don't like reading the F-bomb several times in one chapter, even if it's coming from intense situations or a vulgar, sadistic character.  If it doesn't bother you, I would definitely suggest this book!  Overall rating: 4.5 stars ****

What's next?  My next book in line on my Kindle is Jules Verne's classic The Mysterious Island.  I lined this one up, actually because I'll be researching it for one of my own stories. :) Also, I finally finished my pictures from Kew Gardens! :D  Coming soon is my trip through Parliament! :D

Rain on Me describes me better than any profile picture ever could. This picture was taken of my English/Humanitarian building on my campus of a private school focusing on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. That, in and of itself, says a lot about me, I think. I'll spell it out though; I love my religion, I love learning, and I love writing. Concerning photography, (since that's why most of my viewers watch me) this demonstrates my favorite type of photos: detailed and contrasting, and though most of my photos include nature and micro scenes, I try to meet these points.
There are a thousand words to a picture, and I believe it's an art to know what they're saying. :)

Since photography is more of a side hobby for me, I thank you for every watch, favorite, comment, and llama! I love to capture moments that I feel would have gone unnoticed if I hadn't been there to catch them. Everyone has a different perspective, so here's mine. :) Feel Free For Feedback, I love to hear it! :D SMiLE!


Favourite genre of music: Chill, and what I like to call "spiritually intense."
Favourite style of art: Nature and city photography, and Professional-thought provoking writing
Wallpaper of choice: Sunsets, Water Scenes, and Flowers
Personal Quote: SMiLE, and "Breath, it's the cure to dying."

I loved living a mere couple blocks away from Hyde Park, London.  It was my favorite place to stroll.

Dance Party with a New Friend
I found another friend and got another great close up with him!  But the lighting was all wrong... so I had to edit it to bring out the details.
Edited (just in case you couldn't tell) with neon, inverted values and colors, and brightness and contrast.
