Booking Through Thursday and stuff

Is the week over yet? I can't wait until Friday, not sure why but I've been so damn tired lately that by 8:30 I'm ready to hang it up! Matt had to go back to work tonight so I don't feel too guilty spending a few hours on the internet with headphones on, listening to Paramore. I want to give a big shout out to my niece LANEY!! Thanks sweetie for making this CD for me! This band is awesome!! So, other than work not much else has been going on here in the Thumb. We were threatened with ice last night but it didn't happen. Heard today that we're "suppose" to get a big storm tomorrow...won't bet my life on it. Every time winter comes to Michigan I feel the need to ask Matt, "Why do we live here?" and then he replies, "Remember, you didn't want to move somewhere warmer until Marc graduates!" So this cold shit is all Marc's fault!! :)

Finished another good book. Number 2 in a series. I've come to realize that I am a fool for series. Love them, especially when I really connect with the characters, then I don't want to see them go away. I've even put off reading a book just so that I didn't have to say goodbye!! Yes, I am seriously deranged! Anywhooo.....this makes book 101 for the year. Yes, I do sometimes cook and clean, remember I said sometimes!!!

This is a pretty good series if you're interested in the paranormal and romance all tied up in a neat little package. Sometimes I just need a fun, sexy read that doesn't require too much brain activity. I really enjoy the characters and most especially the setting- Ireland. A country that I long to visit sometime in my life. I'm going to place a hold for #3.

Now it is time for Booking Through Thursday meme.

5 for Favorites

btt button

1. Do you have a favorite author? I have a lot of favorite authors that I will read no matter what: James Patterson, John Green, Laurie Halse Anderson, Beverly Lewis (I love Amish books), J.K. Rowling, Jane Austen, Diane Gabaldon, ....I need to stop!

2. Have you read everything he or she has written? no, wait I have read all of Laurie Halse Anderson's books and J.K. Rowling's.

3. Did you LIKE everything? Most of the time yes

4. How about a least favorite author? Well, she use to be my favorite- Patricia Cornwell. I have to say that I've been reading pretty good reviews of her newest Scarpetta book so I just may have to read it.

5. An author you wanted to like, but didn’t? Gregory Maguire-hated Wicked, just hated it!! I had to FORCE myself to finish it....yuck!

Stay Warm tonight!! It's going to get down to 19!!!


  1. Interesting answers! I like Laurie Halse Andersen, but I've only read "Speak." I love J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter books and will be buying Beedle the Bard, but she's not in my favourite list.

    I didn't LOVE love Wicked, but I really enjoyed it, enough to give away my mass market and order the hardcover edition.

    Did you like the original Oz series? I read them as a child but don't really remember much except for the first book.

  2. I love the Harry Potter books. :-) And Jane Austen is definitely among my favorite authors. :-)

    I'm with you on Patricia Cornwell. I really enjoyed her earlier books, but I gave up on her several books ago because they just weren't holding my attention anymore.

    Dare I tell you that it's supposed to get down to 47 where I live tonight? ;-)
