So I’ve learned a few things from doing this reading meme, the first being that under no circumstances should I ever attempt a 30 day reading meme in December. What the hell was I thinking? How could I forget how hectic the holiday season is? Nevermind the holiday season, how did I forget that December has 31 friggin’ days. *sigh* The next thing I learned is that my planning ahead skills suck. I’ve made a mental note to try to fix that during 2011. The final thing I learned is that participating in a meme wasn’t as bad as I was anticipating. Anywho, I’m giving you the answers to the questions I missed along with today’s answer in one shot (an idea I’m shamelessly stealing from Jen over at My Book Addiction). Before I get to the answers I wanted to thank everyone who stopped by to read my back and forth convos with the reading meme and everyone who decided to participate. YOU GUYS ROCK!! Without further ado here are the rest of the questions I have left to answer.
Best Quote (Day Twenty-Four)
Okay so I decided to turn this question into the best quotes from the few book reviews I’ve done or am working on. Here they are:
Then he did smile, one of his dazzling smiles that restored sight to the blind and instilled music in the deaf.
-Not Quite a Husband by Sherry Thomas
I go over to the stroller, which is one of those complicated Swedish affairs with everything from a wind guard to a cappuccino maker, and twist my head inside.
-Catch of the Day by Kristan Higgins
Jazz swirled through the room, competed with my heartbeat and pressed against my skin, sensuous as a lover’s kiss, steamy as the bayou in mid-August. It stole my soul.
-Afterlife by Merrie Destefano
My body was melting like liquid silver, like the Wicked Witch of the West, like the second Terminator dissembling.
-Night Myst by Yasmine Galenorn
A Book You Plan on Reading (Day Twenty-Five)
There’s no way I can name just one book. I can however list a few of the series that I plan to start or catch up on. They are:
Downside Ghosts series by Stacia Kane
The Jane True series by Nicole Peeler (Need to read books 2 & 3)
The Disillusionist series by Carolyn Crane
The Maker’s Song series by Adrian Phoenix (Need to read books 2 & 3. Book 4 hits stores on February 22, 2011)
As I’m sure you’ve figured this is but a mere chip off the ol’ TBR iceberg. *shrugs*
OMG WTF Plot (Day Twenty-Six)
I wonder if this means OMG WTF as in absolutely absurd or OMG WTF I didn’t see that coming. Hmm…I’ll go with the absolutely absurd one. This honor goes to:
All I have to say is O_o …
Favorite Non-Mainstream Writer (Day Twenty-Seven)
First Book Obsession (Day Twenty-Eight)
Good ol’ Nancy Drew was the first book obsession I can remember.
Current Book Obsession (Day Twenty-Nine)
At this very moment it would be a little thing called the Fever series. I’m halfway through chapter 4 in Dreamfever and my brain friggin’ melted. If you haven’t read this series yet I need you to stop reading and go get book 1 - Darkfever. Not tomorrow, not next week, RIGHT NOW!
Saddest Character Death (Day Thirty)
No character’s death as affected me as much as the death of Kisten from Kim Harrison’s Hollows series. I still haven’t gotten over it and frankly I might never get over it. WHY KIM WWWWHHHHYYYYY?!?!? *throws self to knees and throws arms up in the air* Yes, I know that was a bit dramatic but, damn it it’s how I feel on the inside.
