Immortal Mine Book Review

For the month of January I decided to read Immortal Mine by Cindy C Bennett who also happens to be my mom (no, I'm not biased).
Here is what the book is about:
Niahm (pronounced Neeve) Parker is thoroughly content with her life in the small town of Goshen. Her parents, who travel frequently for their work, have raised a headstrong, independent teen. While her peers can hardly wait for the opportunity to leave, Niahm plans to stay forever.

When Shane Coleman and his nephew Sam move into town, it's the biggest event to happen in as long as anyone can remember. It’s quite remarkable for anyone to move into Goshen rather than out, but when it’s discovered that Sam is 17, it requires some serious burning of the phone lines. All the teen girls are thrilled to have a new hottie in town—all except Niahm. Sam Coleman represents a threat to her perfect way of life.

Sam is drawn to Niahm against his will. He'd prefer to not be bound to this angry, stubborn, unlikeable girl. Unfortunately, he has no choice. However, Sam didn't plan on falling for Niahm. For Immortals, love is not only forbidden, but dangerous for her. He finds himself in a fight not only for Niahm's heart, but to protect her from being harmed by those who seek to destroy Sam and those like him.

Niahm finds herself attracted to the tall, copper-headed boy, who becomes her friend and then her support when tragedy strikes. Soon, she begins to realize that there may be more to Sam than she ever suspected... much more. But what he truly is, she can't begin to imagine.

Now, when I first read the back of the book it sounded slightly like Twilight to me, so I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. But it is nothing like Twilight! Plus, it is way better. It is a whole different story, and it is very unique and entertaining. I would give Immortal Mine 5 stars out of 5! I loved it. I was getting near the end of the book and everything was all happy when BAM! Suddenly, the book took a very unexpected turn. Immortal Mine was such an unpredictable story and I loved it. I was really sad when it ended, but luckily it ends in a way that is satisfiable, at least for now. Plus, there are going to be sequels and since I have the hookups, I can probably read the sequel as soon as she starts writing it. :)
Immortal Mine was an amazing paranormal romance book that I would recommend to everyone, even if it doesn't sound like your type of book! I was a little skeptical at first as well, but I ended up loving it. In fact, it is my favorite book of Cindy's so far.

New Years Resolutions

I know this is a little late, but here are my resolutions!

Brush my teeth every night - I know this seems like a simple task to most of you, but not to me! I am always munching on food at night and by the time I remember that I should brush my teeth, I am too lazy! But, I'm working on it.

Maintain a 3.5 GPA or higher - I made the Dean's List this semester at the U with a 3.7, so I'm off to a pretty good start, but I would like to keep it up.

Read one novel per month - I used to read ALL THE TIME back in the day, but I am so busy now. I miss reading though, and my vocabulary really sucks, so I am going to read one book per month and then maybe post a review on my blog about the book so look out!

I have always wanted to have my own blog, but I really have no particular special crafty talents to blog about, or some sad life story... So I'm just winging it! I suppose I plan on writing about my college experience, my hopes and dreams for the future, fun memories and experiences, things that inspire me from day to day, and probably a few things about baking (because that's something I LOVE to do!) 

Here are a few things about myself:
I attend the University of Utah where I am working on my Bachelor's in psychology with a health promotion minor. I also live in the dorms up there which is fun, but bittersweet at the same time. Because I received by Associate's Degree in high school, I will be done with my Bachelor's  in Spring of 2013! After that I plan on getting my Master's ASAP, and perhaps think about doing a Doctorate.

I love to cook, especially when it comes to baking yummy treats! Me and my friend Alexis are always baking up new tasty treats every time I come home for the weekend.
I love my family very much! My sister is my bestest friend in the whole wide world and I would be lost without her.

I also love my boyfriend, Calvin, very much! We have been together for over two years and I couldn't be happier. I never knew I would be lucky enough to end up with such an amazing, sweet man.
In my spare time I like to bake, do puzzles, play board games, watch The Office or Friends, hang out with my dogs, and sleep. I'm kind of like an old lady in that way!

Welp, there goes my first post. I hope you guys enjoy what is yet to come!
