Currently Reading: Parasite

parasite by Mira Grant
Science Fiction/Horror

“A decade in the future, humanity thrives in the absence of sickness and disease.

We owe our good health to a humble parasite – a genetically engineered tapeworm developed by the pioneering SymboGen Corporation. When implanted, the tapeworm protects us from illness, boosts our immune system – even secretes designer drugs. It’s been successful beyond the scientists’ wildest dreams. Now, years on, almost every human being has a SymboGen tapeworm living within them.

But these parasites are getting restless. They want their own lives…and will do anything to get them.” — Goodreads

1/5/16 : With as much as I loved the Newsflesh triology by the same Author, I couldn’t help myself from getting another book from her.  This has been sitting on my shelf for awhile and I thought it’d be a great way to start out 2017.  So far, it’s done is a much similar style as the previous books I’ve read by Grant.  We’ll see if she can keep up the story as well too.

Welcome to 2017

First of all, I want to apologize for all those that read my reviews and other materials. 2016 kicked my butt. To recap that:

  • Jan-Apr : Super sick and finally a diagnosis. Menses induced Iron Deficiency Anemia. Started new supplement regime to try to balance my levels out. Not easy.
  • May-August :  went by too quickly. I took some fun college courses for my degree: Behavioral Neuroscience and Psycholinguistics. Really enjoyed those.
  • Sept-Dec : Took two of my most advanced classes for my degree and it really stomped my ass. My capstone class alone required reading 6-8 advanced research articles each week! Couples that with Advanced Psych Research and I had literally zero time for leisure reading.
  • Side Note: December 18th, I ran my first 5k in below freezing temps/windchill. It was a fun run and this not timed. My fella did time us and said we finished together in about 30 minutes. I’m really proud of myself for doing that. Can’t wait for more!

The Shirts Say It All

2017 is the start of my last semester until graduation.  April 29th! I’m so excited to be done with classes and to start looking for a big girl job.

Now, what I would love most from you, my Kittens, are some reading suggestions. What would you like me to review for you?!
