For this challenge we had to take a cover of a book we plan on reading and write a synopsis just on the picture.

Jade just can't believe her luck. Her first modeling job in the big city...well not really the big city more of big city adjacent...was for some Buffy wanna be. It was cold, dark and of course the crew was late. Maybe someone at that creepy house has a phone and more importantly a bathroom she could use. Surely that scary figure lurking in the upstairs window is friendly.
Today I have to pick my top three love triangles.

1. I loved the energy between Jane, Byron, and Walter in Jane Bites Back by Michael Thomas Ford.
2. The relationship between Mary, Harry and Travis made me so sad in The Forest of Hands and Teeth.
3. In And Only to Deceive Lady Emily deals with the love she felt she should have had for her dead husband and the new suitors who are interested in her.

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon 2011 Mini challenge 1

Mini Challenge Question 1:
What is your favorite type of myth (Greek, Roman, Egyptian etc)? Native American since I grew up with it all around me.

Mini Challenge Question 2:
What is your favorite book with some type of mythology in it? I just finished "The Witches of East End" by Melissa de la Cruz so I am so interested in Norse mythology right now. I took a couple courses in mythology in college but they never really got that in-depth into the Vikings beliefs.

Once Upon a Read-a-Thon

I am excited about this. I haven't done a read-a-thon since I was in grade school. But I love to read and any excuse to spend time with my nose stuck in a book or kindle sounds good to me :)

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy US Thanksgiving to those who celebrate OR a Joyous Autumn/Happy Thursday Nov, 25 2010 to those that aren't. I have so much to be thankful for this year. My wonderful crazy husband who makes me laugh, my smart and creative daughter who is growing into an incredible woman, my cats who give me more love than I deserve, my husband's dog who's loyalty I admire, and Spiderpig the Turtle who is mean and bitchy but is a living reminder of my Dad who once loved her very much. I thankful that God gave me another Thanksgiving with my family in a warm dry happy home. I am thankful for all the mistakes we each make everyday since that makes us all more human and hopefully more compassionate with other people. I am most thankful for a loving God who blesses me and challenges me everyday but I know never stops loving and believing in me.


Writer's Block: Speak and spell

If you could cast one type of magic spell, which would you choose, and why?

I would make LiveJournal never ask creepy writer's block questions like "If you were the TSA at Hogwarts, which Harry Potter character would you pat down, and why?" ever again!

Writer's Block: What's under Snape's cape?

If you could cast one type of magic spell, which would you choose, and why?

Keeping Classy LJ. Might as well ask which Harry Potter character we want to feel up against their will. Nice Job.
