The Internet is Back, Mirror, Mirror, More Books, & Hops

As of Tuesday afternoon, I am officially back online as it took two technicians, in two trucks, to fix my internet connection. Thankfully, I had several posts already scheduled for this week.

I watched Mirror, Mirror earlier today, and I have mixed feelings about the movie. Considering the millions put into the movie, I was disappointed that the studio couldn't afford to shoot the forest scenes in an actual forest and not a sound stage. The movie is more Mel Brooks satire than it is Grimm. 

Many books in the mail this week: Inescapable by Nancy Mehl; Love Finds You in Mackinac Island, Michigan by Melanie Dobson; Cancer on the Brain by Jay Lefevers; The Pigeon Pie Mystery by Julia Stuart; Yahoo Income by Dana E.Blazis and Sharon L. Cohen; Night Buddies and the Pineapple Cheesecake Scare by Sands Hetherington; Children of Angels by Katheryn Dahlstorm; Giants in the Land by Clark Rich Burbidge; Tea Party Culture War by Stephen Johnston; Mindful of Him by Hollis Hughes; and The Search by Shelley Shepard Gray. The latter is the only one I actually ordered, the rest are from publishers or authors. As you can see I have lots of reading to do in July! When I read and review The Pigeon Pie Mystery, there will be a giveaway!

Question of the week: Do you have a keeper shelf for books you loved? What books are on that shelf and why?

My answer: Not really. I have my R.L. Stine collection on two shelves, James Patterson books on one shelf, V.C. Andrews collection on one shelf, and Stephen King books on several shelves. I don't have the space to have a 'keeper shelf.'


Question of the Week: Birthday Wishes -- Blow out the candles and imagine what character could pop out of your cake...who is it and what book are they from?

My Answer: What an interesting question! Well, of course I would like for Sookie Stackhouse from the Southern Vampire series to pop out of a cake, but since she is a telepath, she would probably end up slapping me in the face.

  1. I'm not going to change my answer, but I knew I was answering it in the wrong way. I'm following you through GFC. My answer is here: http://365-books-a-year.blogspot.com/2012/06/feature-and-follow-friday-3.html

    Who do you think Sookie will end up with since there's only one book left? My fear is that Harris will have her end up with Eric. I've pretty much been reading the series in the hopes that she ends up with Sam. If she doesn't end up with Sam...I'm already contemplating what I'll do with all of my books if that happens. I think something with flames.

    I have been wondering should I watch Mirror Mirror ; I want to like it, but I think I would probably end up hating it... :D

  9. Mirror, Mirror from the previews seemed like it was going to be weird. I'm in no hurry to see it at all
