Question of the Day

Hey did you you all see Silver’s news on her blog last week? If not, go see it here I’m really excited for her new adventure!

Now here’s my Question of the Day for you all. Do you think this blog has run it’s course? I’m wondering if I should keep doing this? Or just post one or two times a week? What do you guys think?

Sadly, Bailey ended up not coming over yesterday.  Bummer. But he’ll come over soon!

The Verizon guy was highly amused by the picture of Bailey reading that’s my screensaver. I looked for the picture to post it here, but couldn’t find it.

We’ll know in a day or two if the Internet problem is resolved.

Okay now if you have a minute, please answer if you all think I should continue the blog as it is or not.  I want your input as I make this decision! Thank you!

Question of the Day

I’m working, and completely brain dead.  So I’m just going to ask a question for those of you inclined to answer. Who is one of your favorite heroines from books, and why do you think you connected so strongly with her?

Winner! Shout Out! And A Question

The winner of the signed copy of ETERNAL CAPTIVE by Laura Wright, book mark and key ring mint holder is:

VIKI!

Viki send me your mailing address at email hidden; JavaScript is required or email hidden; JavaScript is required and I’ll get the book out to you soon.

Next is a Huge Witchy Congrats to Kate Carlisle for hitting #15 on the New York Times list with her latest Bibliophile Mystery, ONE BOOK IN THE GRAVE. Let’s all toast Kate with Appleitnis!

And that brings me to my Question of the Day. Does the fact that a book (or author) hit the New York Times or USA Today list influence your book buying decision in any way?

Dessert Question

You all know I’ve been doing Weight Watchers for almost four months now.  I’m really pretty disciplined, even though I’ve hit goal.

It’s just too easy to gain weight.  Unbelievably easy.  Plus I’d love to lose a few more pounds.

However my doctor gave me some advice, I love: He suggested I take either one day a week, or one meal a week, “off” from the program. So that’s what I do when something fun that involves food comes up.

This weekend, Wizard and I are having a family BBQ and pool party. So my idea of fun is planning an easy dessert for that. One that I plan to eat! So it probably should involve some chocolate.

Any suggestions? Because even if I don’t use them, I do love to talk about desserts!

Question of the Day

I’d really love your opinion on this:

First person or third person? Why? Do you sometimes like first, and other times like third?

Enlighten me!

Last Time You Were Surprised?

When was the last time a book or movie surprised you?

I just read a book that surprised me. It’s CHASIN’ EIGHT By Lorelei James. Loris one of my blog mates over at Murder She Writes.  I’ve read a four or five of her books and like her writing.  You know how it is, some books work better for me than others.

But this book took an unexpected turn and I can’t stop thinking about it.  In my opinion, this should be her breakout book.  The book was all fun and sexy, super enjoyable and then it was like being slammed between the eyes by a dose or reality that took these characters from fun and sexy to unforgettable. And by the way, she set it up very well,  and in retrospect, I should have seen it coming. I keep thinking about two scenes in there that just had a real impact on me.

Even the title holds a deeper meaning that I ever expected.

So for me, that last book or movie that surprised me is CHASIN’ EIGHT.  What about you?

Question of the Day

I love the book I’m reading, but I’m finding too many point of view shifts AWAY from the hero and heroine, and it’s annoying me. I’m wondering what you all think about that? How much do you want to know about secondary characters who might have been heroes and heroines in previous books, or the bad guys, or other characters that are NOT the hero and heroine?
