My Life According to the Books I've Read

I saw this bookish meme over at Today's Adventure and figured I'd give it a shot. Some of the prompts are a bit inane, but the idea is a fun one. If you do it, make sure to let me know so I can check it out.

Using only books you have read this year (2009), cleverly answer these questions. Try not to repeat a book title. It's a lot harder than you think!

    What great fun! I've seen this meme going around...

    I like your answer to what life is to you! Hehe, when I read your favorite form of transportation I was thinking, "Does she plan on riding on a big dog?" stupid..stupid..

  4. Juju, I'm glad! As they don't appear to be going away any time soon. :)

    Vanessa, LOL! It frightens me as well. Seriously, that one worked too well not to use, even if it wasn't entirely accurate...;)

    Marie, yeah, I thought it was as well.

    Sharry, I know. That one probably works least of all but it was the only one remotely connected to transportation, and still a stretch at that!

  8. Kath, I'm glad! I saw yours and they are particularly good. Though to die by the Hunger Games *shivers*.

Terms of Endearment

Have you ever been reading a book, moving along quite nicely, and then--bam--a character whips out a particular term of endearment that just yanks you right out of the story? It happened to me recently, and I'm sad to say I couldn't recover. I did try. But she just kept using that term and I . . . I had to get the hell out of Dodge. Buh-bye, story. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. I'm not saying this is the norm (thank goodness). I can put up with a certain amount of treacly back and forth when it comes to the exchange of terms of endearment, especially if they fit the characters, their background, culture, the tenor of their relationship, etc. And the history of these terms at home and from around the world is often fascinating (at times hilarious). But there comes a point where I can't see past the cheese and/or weird anymore and I do not want to be with these people any longer. Shallow? Perhaps. But it's a very individual thing, isn't it? We a…

Interview with Sara Creasy + Children of Scarabaeus Giveaway!

Today is the release day for Sara Creasy's Children of Scarabaeus--the second book in her wonderful Scarabaeus duology. I'm delighted to be celebrating release day with an interview with Ms. Creasy. I picked up Song of Scarabaeusa couple of weeks ago, fell immediately in love, and set about getting my hands on an ARC ofthe sequel as quickly as possible (you can read my reviews here and here). This is the kind of science fiction I love--character-driven and exciting, set against the background of a fully developed and eerily fascinating world. If you haven't had a chance to pick up these books, now is the perfect time. Please welcome Sara Creasy!  First things first: The Covers. I am kind of a fan of Chris McGrath’s covers, and I love the little touches on these two that make them unique to Edie & Finn’s story. Did you have any input on the covers and what was your reaction upon seeing the first one? Isn’t his work amazing? As soon as I found out he was doing my SONG OF S…
