'Cause Everyone's Doing it!

For new posts... scroll down. I'm leaving this on top until the contest is closed!

So I crawled out from under my rock from in my dark cave for a peek at the world (still not quite sure about coming out of my cave yet!). When I was wandering around to my favorite sites, I got this wonderful idea from Orannia. And since Kate Daniels book 3 just came out and I am so in love with the series and Ilona Andrews, I doing an....


From the Author site: Atlanta would be a nice place to live, if it weren't for magic...

One moment magic dominates, and cars stall and guns fail. The next, technology takes over and the defensive spells no longer protect your house from monsters. Here skyscrapers topple under onslaught of magic; werebears and werehyenas prowl through the ruined streets; and the Masters of the Dead, necromancers driven by their thirst of knowledge and wealth, pilot blood-crazed vampires with their minds.

In this world lives Kate Daniels. Kate likes her sword a little too much and has a hard time controlling her mouth. The magic in her blood makes her a target, and she spent most of her life hiding in plain sight. But when Kate's guardian is murdered, she must choose to do nothing and remain safe or to pursue his preternatural killer. Hiding is easy, but the right choice is rarely easy...

In this first book we get introduced to Kate and her mysterious past and bloodline as well as meet Derek, Kate's teenage werewolf sidekick-to-be, and the ever so yummy Curran, the Beast Lord of Atlanta. So I'll happily get someone else just as addicted as I am. And as a teaser so that you'll have run out and get the rest of the series.... In Magic Strikes, book 3, there is much sizzle between our beloved Kate and his Furry Majesty (as Kate likes to call him, among many other things)!

I'll send it wherever those wonderful people in brown (UPS) will deliver, so contest is open to everyone! Leave a comment and tell me about a book/series I should take a look at.

Contest will close at the end of the month (30 April) and I'll announce a winner on MAY DAY!

Villains' Day

In honor of the IRS (those evil villains in the American Government - at least to those of us who live in the USA) and TAX DAY, I declare today, 15 of April, NATIONAL VILLAIN'S DAY (or international if others think its a good idea)! Let here it for the villains! Booooooooooo! It's really not a great story without a really great villain!

The Disney Villains: They are such fun to hate. They make the backbone of the great Disney Classics. The stories just won't be the same without evil uncle Scar, Shere Khan, Ursula and the rest. Some have a redeemable quality such as the love of one's pets but most are just plain evil fun! My personal favorite has to be Maleficent, the Mistress of All Evil! Gotta love that title. I mean really how much more can you ask of the title! Of All Evil! That covers so much!

Voldemort: Harry Potter would have been another nobody had it not been for the great evil Wizard Voldemort. He made Harry Potter what it was so if there was no Voldemort than there couldn't have been a Harry Potter. And on the evil scale... He's gotta be right near the top on the great evil chart!

Vadim Maur: Talk about a completely nasty evil guy! Anything goes when it comes to his pursuit of everlasting life and ultimate magical power. He breeds people like animal to get the most gifted offspring so that he can breed them until he has the ultimate magical spawn so that he can take over their bodies and conquer the world! But really don't you have to admire his perseverance and dedication towards his goal.

Who are your favorites? Who do you think is the most wonderful/evil villain?

Where Did Aymless Go?

It's been awhile since I posted so here's the update:

1. I really haven't gone anywhere. Mostly just hiding from the world in general.

2. Am depressed because can't find work and the money is running out so that puts me at

3. Am very anxious because the money is running out an there is no work to be had as of yet!

4. Got lots of books read (will post reviews eventually) but a lot of them where re-reads (had to refresh my memory on all of Sherrilyn Kenyon books so that I could read Acheron). Works well for the getting away but not really away bit.

5. Now entering my most disliked season! Bird-Poop. Yup at my place we have Wet and Bird-Poop seasons (with a mix of the two between the seasons). I really, really hate Bird-Poop season. My nice car gets covered in that icky stuff every day so there doesn't seem to be a point in washing it off. But then you end up driving Poop-car (which I find icky) until you get around to washing it off. Why can't they find someone else's car to poop all over!

6. Procrastinating on buying all those seeds for the garden. Will get around to it sometime.

7. Procrastinating on doing TurboTax (all you Americans know what that is). Have to do it this week sometime... but really it's only Tuesday so that at least another two days I can put it off. *g*

So that's what I've been doing. How about all of you?
