Synopsis (adapted from goodreads):

Mary Houston didn’t expect to come home late at night to see her entire neighborhood in shambles; doors ripped off their hinges, windows smashed, trash on lawns. She’s sure her family has been captured by people who call themselves Warriors, who train humans to become a part of The Platform for World War III.  And she ends up captured herself as well. Now, in order to save herself from losing herself, she must make them believe that she is one of them.

She meets Xavier, who is set to train her one-on-one at The Shelter where she is staying with hundreds of other trainees. Can she survive while hiding her true self behind this mask, risking her entire life in the process?

Ramble #32: Changes

Hey-hey guys 🙂

A lot has been going on in my life during the past few months. I’ve been thinking a lot about how I want to really spend my time, how to balance the things in my life that are important to me and some other stuff too. That also got me thinking about the blog, since I spend so much time and energy here and I realized that I needed to rethink and rebalance quality and quantity in my posts again.

All in all, the “big” changes will be that I won’t be posting the weekly memes well… weekly… But I’ll figure out other way to incorporate their content in this blog in a more interesting and creative way, I hope. I’m still not sure about some other aspects but I’ll announce any other upcoming changes so stay tuned! 😉

What I can say will stay the same for sure are the reviews, the rambles (I couldn’t survive without them!), the TBRs and the wrap ups.
