Tell us what is your favorite genre of books: I guess it depends on the mood I’m in. If I’m really happy, I might want to read a sad book. If I’m feeling down, the last thing I need is a book that’s gonna bring me down more.
I think I can safely say that I love most books. The only ones I don’t like are ones that are romance only. I mean, if you’re gonna give me a romance, it’s gotta have something else going on. Like a thriller, or a historical type thing.Who is your favorite author: Ya know? This is sort of a dorky question, huh? I mean, I probably came up with it, so I’m the dork, but really, if you like to read, it’s hard to pin down one favorite author.
I have 3 or 4 authors who I love and always buy their books.
If I wanna good Thriller or Suspense? Karin Slaughter. She’s not afraid to pull the rug out from under you. Usually you can tell where a book is going, but you never can with hers. I mean, she’ll kill off a main character, even if it’s someone you are sure can’t die. And it works!
If I want good Chick Lit? Definitely Sophie Kinsella and Jennifer Weiner. (and it’s pronounced whine-er, so ya know. Every time I see it I actually pronounce it weeeener/whine-er, just so I have all the bases covered.)
If I want something totally fluffy, that will make me laugh? Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum series, hands down.
I also like John Irving and I have fallen head over heals for Elizabeth Flock, who wrote a book called Me and Emma. If you have the time, definitely pick that one up. It blew me away.
What gets me is when they make films like Twilight. It matched the book pretty well, but what comes across on the page, looked really cheesy on film. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I still LOVED the dang movie and it makes me laugh whenever I watch it, even though it’s not supposed to be funny, and for that alone, I will keep it forever in my collection. And, I can’t wait for New Moon. I’m a Twilight Junkie.
What really bugged me was Shopaholic. That was SO different then the book. I mean, for instance, a huge part of the book? She’s English. Lives in Britain. Not New York. Sheesh. But it was still funny and I liked it a lot.
What book have you read that has stuck with you the most:
Me and Emma by Elizabeth Flock. It’s about a girl and her sister and the pain they go through growing up. I’m not gonna tell you more, cuz I think you should go pick it up and read it. It’s fantastic. Although, if you pick it up and you don’t end up liking it? I never mentioned it.
I also read a thriller by Jack Ketchum once, called The Lost. I don’t remember a lot about that book, but I remember it scared the crap outta me and I still think about it.
Now, tell us about your blog.What do you think might set it apart from others and why should we love you:
You should love me because I’m shameless and will do anything to get you to.
Uh, I don’t know. I’m funny (sometimes), I don’t get embarrassed, I will, at times, tell way too much information about myself, which it’s always fun to hear about other peoples’ weirdness, right?
I don’t know! It’s hard to brag yourself up, you try! Oh wait, you will, cuz we’re coming after all of our Girlfriends to do this same thing!
