“Non-book-related this week!! Do you have pets?”

Boy do I ever. We have Ginger, a boxer we picked up while living in Mexico. We also have Blue, a Blue point Siamese cat we also got in Mexico - his nick name is "fat cat with a little head". Then there's Snarf, the black and white male we got while living in Alabama - he's as serious as a business man. Bunny is the oldest female cat and she was born with no tail. She's got a nub she wags like a dog. She's also the momma to our other 2 cats - Bunny Clone (Cloner for shits and giggles) and Sassy (occasionally Sassafras). Cloner looked like her momma when born, but has a super long tail. When Sassy get excited, she'll whip her tail in a circle. When she's being petted and she's really in to it, she'll drool.

Q. In books like the Sookie Stackhouse (True Blood) series the paranormal creature in question "comes out of the closet" and makes itself known to the world. Which mythical creature do you wish would come out of the closet, for real?

Hmmm, I so totally have to go with shapeshifters.  I think the idea of turning into a wolf, large cat or dragon would be wicked awesome:)

“What’s the LONGEST book you’ve ever read?”
(Note: I’m putting one caveat on this question. You aren’t allowed to say the Bible, Torah, Qur’an, or other religious/spiritual text.)

Hmm - the Twilight saga is pretty long and so are a few Harry Potter books.  I think the long paperback I've read is The Last Mermaid by Shana Abe at almost 600 pages.  there are some prett long Laurell K. Hamilton books as well.

Q. If you could write yourself a part in a book, what book would it be and what role would you play in that book?

Ohhh, hard one.  I think I'm going to with Harry Potter and I would totally love to be a teacher at Hogwarts.  I love that world and would love to be a part of it:)

Q. How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?

I would have to say my habits reversed a bit. In middle/high school, I read books like VC Andrews and historical romances. I didn't read teen fiction. I do now and I love it. I read other genres as well, but teen lit has been added to the mix (historical has been tossed out).

“Let’s talk crazy book titles! Highlight one or two (or as many as you like!) titles in your personal collection that have the most interesting titles! If you can’t find any, feel free to find one on the internet!”

Ok, the first one I'm going to say is: The Twilight of Lake Woebegotten.  I thought it was a weird title and I thought it was a weird book - comical, but wierd.

The second book I'll mention is: Go the F*&k to Sleep.  Sorry, it was funny.  Escpeically if you listened to it read by Samual L. Jackson.  Come on kid, go the F to sleep!

review: A Long, Long Sleep - Anna Sheehan

A Long, Long SleepA Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Rose has been is stasis for the last sixty-two years. She was awoken by a kiss from a boy who found her in a forgotten basement. Everything she’s knows has changed, everyone she knew is gone. When everyone thought she was put in to stasis to be protected from the Dark Times and that she was only about seventy eight years old, she knew that wasn’t true. She was more like one-hundred years old and it wasn’t her first time in stasis.

review: Cowboys Like Us - Vicki Lewis Thompson

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Real cowboys aren't born. They're made…

Logan Carswell has just kissed his professional baseball career goodbye. Goodbye dreams, career and future. For now, though, he's working at the Last Chance Ranch and the town saloon, where sexy bartender Caro Davis is definitely taking his mind off his troubles…

Sinful Sunday #31

It's Sunday and time for a smokin' hot man....
Holy moly, now I'm thirsty too.  True Blood's on tonight and if I was a vamp, I'd probably be gulping it down like that after seeing this ...

Top 5 Sundays: Favorite Childhood TV Series!

The theme for today is:

Favorite Childhood TV Series!

So here are my favorite TV shows from when I was a kid.   We didn't have cable, living in BFE (Fremont, MI), so whenever we were in Muskegon (MI) at my grandmother's I'd try and watch "You Can't Say That On Television".  I loved that show.  All the other shows were either on Saturday cartoons or after school.

“What is the one ARC you would love to get your hands on right now?”

I would give my right nut for a copy of One Grave at a Time by Jeanniene Frost.  Or the next Lords of the Underworld book, The Darkest Surrender, by Gena Showalter.

Q. Talk about the book that most changed or influenced your life (was it a book that turned you from an average to avid reader, did it help you deal with a particularly difficult situation, does it bring you comfort every time you read it?).

I know it's cliche, but I'm really going to have to say  Harry Potter.  I read like crazy as a kid, but stopped for a while until I was about 20 something.  HP got me back into reading big time and I haven't wavered since.
