This week has been frustrating. The bank had a system “upgrade” and I’m unable to withdraw money. Money that I’ve worked for. When I asked them when would the system be fixed, they provided an indefinite answer. How can you say that if people need to pay bills and eat? I was so broke, I nearly cried. I can’t believe they decided to “fix” their system in time for the payout and on a Friday knowing they’ll resume operation Monday. Do they expect us to know it via precognition since they didn’t provide a notice? What the fudging hell?? My co-worker even tried to withdraw from an ATM. Unfortunately her account was debited, but no money came out and according to them, they will process it for a reversal within seven business days. Seven business days for God’s sake! I so hate them! How could them? So incompetent and so inconsiderate! Good thing my friend let me borrowed some cash so I can live on up until their system is fixed. Sigh. Sorry. I rarely rant about things in life, but this is way too much and I just need to let this out. Anyway, we were able to get the money Saturday night so I moved on. I just hope this won’t happen again. Ever. Again.

Author: Shawntelle Madison
Number of Pages: 240 in eBook
Published: December 9th 2014
Genre: Fantasy, Young Adult, Science Fiction, Dystopia
Everyone wants to either be a member of the Guild or work for them. Little does the populace know that the Guild hides sinister secrets… For Tate Sullivan, life in her small, coastal town is far from glamorous. The affluent lives of the Guild members and their servants isn’t something she has ever wanted. But all sixteen year-olds must take a simple test, and Tate’s result thrusts her into the Guild’s world, one where they hide horrible plans for those they select. Tate must fight the relentless General Dagon for control of her mind, body, and soul to keep the one precious thing she has always taken for granted: herself. Her only ally is the same handsome boy she is pitted against in General Dagon’s deadly game. Quinn desires nothing more than to end the life of General Dagon who has taken over Tate’s mind. While romance blooms between Tate and Quinn, General Dagon plots to eventually take over Tate’s body, and love might end before it even begins.

After a lot of heartaches, NetGalley finally approved me for books I requested
so the rule of “Three Books Per Week” would not be valid this week. Haha!
Do you have a Sunday Post too? Please leave your links on the comment box. I’ll check them out 😀

Ugh, I hate when they are “upgrading” – looks like some things are the same no matter where you live. Hopefully, everything will get better soon!
I hope it won’t happen again. It’s really aggravating. 😦
Wow! You had a great week! So many awesome books to check out!
I’m excited about my new books! Thanks for dropping by. Have a great week ♥
Wow, that would be totally against the law here. I am shocked. I hope that they are actually taking care of it and it is not some kind of thing where the bank has failed.
Has there been anything in the news about it? My post: http://fangswandsandfairydust.com/2014/11/sunday-love.html
I’ve already withdrew my money up to the last cent. I hate them and I don’t care anymore. They’ll be losing a lot because of what happened.
Yikes, I would not be happy either! Sorry that happened, how crazy. Hope this week is better, your review books look good. 🙂
Thanks babe! I’m really hoping this week would be better. Have a great week too 🙂
Nice books this week. How are you liking Under My Skin? A few people have recommended it to me. That’s some sorry business with the bank. I’ve never heard of such a thing. Glad you were able to rely on a friend until they fixed things.
here’s my Sunday Post http://fuonlyknew.com/2014/11/30/whats-new-on-my-bookshelf-87-and-the-sunday-post/
I’m enjoying it so far 🙂 I’m so glad I have friends who truly love me, so thankful for them 🙂
I love the cover for Under My Skin. How striking?
Cora @ Tea Party Princess
I’m enjoying it so far 🙂
Wow! I can’t believe a bank can operate like that…I can see how you might not be able to use the online feature of a bank while upgrading, but no withdrawals at the bank itself? Outrageous! I think I’d be changing banks…LOL.
Hope things improve soon…and enjoy your haul.
Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
Believe me, I will be switching. They’re so aggravating! Thanks babe. Have a nice week ahead. ♥
I am so sorry about your bank and what idiots they are. Your new haul is absolutely gorgeous..those covers are all fantastic. Hope you get your funds soon. Maybe switch banks?
I’ve already withdrew EVERYTHING. Lol! Anyway, I’m so excited about my new haul and I so agree that the covers are gorgeous ♥ Happy reading babe ♥
Your bank really sucks! I would probably change banks after a mishap like that one.
I got Under My Skin this week, too, I can’t wait to start reading it.
Have a fantastic week and happy reading 🙂
Oh you bet I’ll change banks. 😦 I’ll look forward to your review of Under My Skin 🙂 Happy Reading babe ♥
Oh that sucks about the bank! I’m definitely surprised they didn’t give you a heads up! Under My Skin looks great! Hope you’re enjoying it. Have a great week!
I still hate them. Anyway, I’m enjoying Under My Skin so far 🙂 Have a great week ♥
Ugh, that’s terrible! How annoying.
I love the cover of Under Different Stars! So pretty
Its InstaLove when I first saw the book cover. The book is actually good. My review’s up if youre interested 🙂
I would hate the bank if that happened to me as well. It’s your money for goodness sake, you should be able to access it.
Like the look of that Amy A Bartol book, love her writing but I haven’t check out that one as yet.
Have a great week Nyze.
I still hate them. I hope they’ve learned their lessons since a lot already switched banks.
Under Different Stars is a good book 🙂 My review’s up if youre interested 🙂
What an awful experience with the bank! I’ve never heard of not giving customers a heads up if an upgrading was going to occur. In fact, even when they did upgrade, it was only the online system that couldn’t be used. We could still use the ATM and access our money. I don’t blame you for switching banks. I would too.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy your books and have a great week.
Ive withdrew everything actually. I hate that bank. Im gonna be switching soon. Have a great week 🙂
Wow. That’s really crazy! Even when our bank is ‘upgrading’ we can access our money. Here in the States, if that happened I’d file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Hope this week is much better!
Theyre just incompetent. I really hate them. Im really hoping this week is much better. Thanks babe 🙂
Under my skin looks good, and hope you enjoy. Also, that sucks with bank and hope they fix it
Under My Skin is so intense. Thanks babe 🙂
Love the cover of Under My Skin. Looks like you’ve got a busy week ahead! Thanks for visiting my post earlier.
No biggie. Thank you too 🙂
Oh, Nyze, how utterly infuriating of your bank! I’m so glad you were at least able to get a loan from a friend to tide you over. And at least you got some lovely new ARCs to brighten things up. I hope this week goes much better for you!
Yeah. NetGalley brightens my week. Im really happy about my new books ang truly hoping this week would be better. Have a great week ahead babe 🙂
That should totally not be right for a bank to do that. They should do midweek or overnight updates. I get ticked at my bank because if I don’t have my check direct deposited into bank, when I go to put my money in the bank I have to make sure I take out enough to use till the next day because it doesn’t deposit till next day..that is not right either! So I am so glad to finally get direct deposit.
You got a some great looking books and I am glad you got approved for netgalley. 🙂 It’s addicting so be careful. 😉
Im gonna be switching banks because of that. Its crazy! I so agree with that NetGalley is so addicting 🙂 Have a great week 🙂
That’s awful! I’m glad they got it fixed, but I would have been so pissed! The netgalley approvals look awesome, I want to read Coral & Bone fairly badly.
I dont care about the bank anymore. Ive dumped them! Anyway, Im so happy with my new books 🙂
That is awful! I agree with everyone, they should not have these updates during peak business times. Plus they should have given their customers a warning! I hope this doesn’t happen again!
You got a lot of great books! I met Amy Bartol at book signing this year but I still have not read her book. It is signed and I love the cover, so I hate to ruin it. I’ll probably end up buying an ebook copy to read. So I’ll check out your review of Under Different Stars.
Have a good week!
Im done with that bank. Ive withdrew everything and looking for a new one 🙂
I really love the cover of Amy’s book. I so envy you that youve got yours signed by her. Yay. Have a great week! 🙂
I have never heard of a bank doing that.. NEVER. I do think you should switch banks. Really. Like now. I don’t think you live in the US.. because here you are supposed to always have access to your money. If the ATM is down then you are supposed to be able to enter the bank and get your money (unless the bank is closed of course). Hope this week is better!
Exactly my point and don’t worry I’m switching banks soon. Have a great week too ♥
Wow! Those covers! So many pretty new books!
Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction
Thanks babe. Have a great week ♥
