Phew!! It's FRIDAY!!!

This FRIDAY is totally awesome.  I am hosting a veeeeery interesting author interview, which is really cool. I have missed joining in on the Hoppin' and Meetin' other great book blogs as much as I'd like to, so I'm getting PREPARED to have fun. I'm going visiting!!!!  :-D

Parajunkee & Alison Can Read are sooooo nice to host this fun get-together. You can join the linky at either of their sites and go visiting, too!!

I have lots of ways you can follow me... down on the left sidebar all spread out like I haven't found a cool button string, yet. (Huh.)  I watch 'em all and follow back... including Facebook Hoppers and Twitter Hoppers.  I make it a goal to follow more people than follow me. (It's nearly a full-time occupation - not "job" my honey says I can't call it a "job" when I'm having this much fun.)

Every week two new bloggers are Featured - they get my FOLLOW first!!

Progress & Procrastination   AND    Om-nom Books


Q: Define what characteristics your favorite books share. Do they all have a kickass heroine or is the hot love interest the Alpha Male?

Ah.... Great Question!!!

All my favorite books do have something in common, although it's a little hard to describe. I like INTELLIGENCE - in the lead character, sure, but more in the way the author put the book together. Like... when there's layers of meaning and I'm not sure I get everything the author meant? (Valente) Love it. Or humor tucked into serious drama like Midnight in Austenland... or well-researched subjects like The Rebel Wife... intricate fantasy set-ups like The Name of the Wind... character development like The Girl of Fire and Thorns... incredible readability with a hopping-interesting story like Cinder... Love it Love it - Love it!!!

I have all kinds of preferences for characters in a book, but I can get along with all different types if the writing's good... and I'll drop a book pretty quick if the writing is... uh, not so good. What about you?!

THANK YOU for visiting! See you again soon!!!!
