Rabid Reader Ramblings (11) Finding Balance: Blogging, Life, Writing, Self Employment

R3 Header

 

Rabid Reader Ramblings is my “discussion post” feature here at Just Another Rabid Reader.  It is a post in which I discuss bookish or blogging related things!  Please feel free to comment, no matter if you agree or disagree because discussion and healthy debate are what these posts are for~!

 

It’s been a crazy week.  With the craziness of the last week, and all the changes in my life in the last two, I realized that my routine needed a revamp.  Therefore, I am actually sitting at my desk at 6 in the morning.  And yep, this is one of the rare occasions when my post is not drafted ahead of time.

Soon it’s a daily dose of partying, self-medicating, and having sex with lots of different guys. As her relationship with Eli destructs, she falls for Jesse, who just so happens to be a drug dealer. Every time she starts to fall back into the memories of her past, Jesse makes it easy to snort away the pain.

Being a force of nature doesn't keep you safe.
Hunter Garrity is used to watching his back. The kids at school sense something different about him. And they're right.
Hunter has powers that have nothing to do with how hard he can throw a punch.
Maybe that's what Clare Kasten is picking up. She's shy, quiet, and intense, but she's sought him out. There's no telling what she wants from him.
But Hunter knows enough to sense a secret when it's close. And getting close to Clare is a danger he's ready to face. . .

As an air Elemental, 17-year-old Emily Morgan doesn’t have much power. That’s okay—she knows what happens to kids who do.
Like Michael Merrick. He’s an earth Elemental, one with enough power to level cities. Which makes him sexy, dangerous, and completely off limits. At least according to Emily’s family.But her summer job puts her in close contact with Michael, and neither of them can help the attraction they feel. When forces of nature like theirs collide, one misstep could get someone killed. Because Emily’s family doesn’t just want her to stay away from him.
They want him dead.

Gabriel Merrick plays with fire. Literally.
Sometimes he can even control it. And sometimes he can't.
Gabriel has always had his brothers to rely on, especially his twin, Nick. But when an arsonist starts wreaking havoc on their town, all the signs point to Gabriel. Only he's not doing it.
And no one seems to believe him. Except a shy sophomore named Layne, a brainiac who dresses in turtlenecks and jeans and keeps him totally off balance. Layne understands family problems, and she understands secrets. She has a few of her own.
Gabriel can't let her guess about his brothers, about his abilities, about the danger that's right at his heels. But there are some risks he can't help taking.
The fuse is lit. . .
