It’s All About the Books

I saw this post a couple of weeks ago over at Life After College (followed a BlogHer link!) and have wanted to do this meme-ish thing but have had trouble finding the time. (What a surprise…ahem.)
I wish I could find more information about the source of this list, but I poked around both websites Amy […]

Turn, turn, turn (the page, that is): Part the Second

All righty, after a couple days break for other things, it’s time to get back to the bookish meme I snagged from Michelle and started here. Ready? OK! (Sorry, cheerleader flashback.)
2. One book you’ve read more than once: There are loads of books I’ve read more than once. Dozens, certainly. Maybe hundreds. But let’s see, […]

Turn, turn, turn (the page, that is): Part the First

Michelle posted a bookish meme a couple of days ago and I’m almost certain it’s one I’ve done before, but I have no idea when, or what my answers were, and I’m too freakin’ lazy incredibly busy to search for it, so I’ve decided to play again on the principle that whatever my answers were […]

The Sugar Queen

Josey Cirrini is stuck in a dead-end life in the mountains of North Carolina. She lives with a mother who doesn’t seem to like her very much, and Josey’s only comforts are the romance novels and sugary snacks she keeps stashed in a hidden closet in her bedroom.
Then one day everything changes when she discovers […]

A Bobbie Faye Day

Actually, I hope it won’t really be a Bobbie Faye Day because if you’ve ever read a book about Bobbie Faye Sumrall, you know that would be a Bad Thing. But a Bobbie Faye book day is a Good Thing.
I had Bobbie Faye’s Very (very, very, very) Bad Day on my Amazon wishlist for ages, […]

Bitingly Good or It Bites?

Here’s a question for you. I’ve heard several people praise the book Twilight (and its sequels) by Stephanie Meyer.  I sometimes like YA books and that sort of thing sounds right up my alley, so a couple of times I’ve been at a book store and picked it up, and yet I’ve never bought it. […]

TGWSS and the Twirly Dance

Early yesterday morning I finished Joshilyn Jackson’s latest novel, The Girl Who Stopped Swimming - aka TGWSS. (And I do mean early! I woke up at 4 AM and knew I was done for the night, so I finished the last few pages I’d been too tired to manage the night before.)
I loved it!! No […]

Easy as (page) 123…

Just when I was feeling all wordless and uninspired, Julie tagged me for a book-ish meme. Thanks, Julie!
I may have done this one before (not sure) but if I have it’s been a long time ago, so I’ll play along again. Here’s da rooolz:
1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 […]
