Teaser Tuesdays - Merciful


With Blaise and Atropos watching I feel the pressure to perform,
though I don't know what I'm supposed to be doing. When the arm
of the second cloak rises in front of me, I cringe but force my hand
to take the edge of the cloak.

Friday Blog Hops

Follow My Book Blog Friday is a weekly meme created and hosted by

This week's featured blogger:

Question of the week: How many books do you read in a week? And in what format do you read them, or listen to them?

My Answer: It depends on my week. If I'm ill or having other things going on, my reading is limited. If it is a good week, I can read three or four books a week. Normally, I read hardback/paperback books and sometimes ebooks.

Jennifer from Crazy for Books has created this meme.

Question of the week: "What book-to-movie adaption have you most liked? Which have you disliked?"

My Answer: I perfer the orginial book, as most of the details are left out. Rosemary's Baby was probably the best movie adaption. The Left Behind movies were horribly made and ignored the sequel books. The Twilight books have become terrible, unwatchable movies, even though they make millions of dollars.

Thursday Ramblings - May 26, 2011

Spartacus: Blood and Sand - The Complete First Season4 Movie Marathon: Cult Horror Collection (The Funhouse / Phantasm II / The Serpent and the Rainbow / Sssssss)I watched Disorganized Crime that I bought yesterday for $3.00. I watched it over and over as a kid, and surprisingly it is still good today. I also picked up He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Season One - 10 episodes for $3. The week before I bought a 4 movie pack for $5.00, The Funhouse, Phantasm 2, The Serpent and the Rainbow, and Sssssss. About ten years ago, I saw the first twenty minutes of The Funhouse on the Scifi (now SyFy) channel, but I had to leave and didn't catch the rest of the movie. So, I was thrilled to find the movie on DVD. I enjoyed the movie, even though it was a little silly, but it is still better than most recent horror movies. I watched Phantasm 2 for the first time and enjoyed watching it.

Undercover Pursuit (Love Inspired Suspense)Anyone heard of Spartacus: Blood and Sand? I've been watching Camelot on Starz and Game of Thrones on HBO. I saw that Spartacus was on sale, so I thought I would give it a try. It only took me three nights to watch the 13 episodes. I was shocked at how graphic the show was, but it was well acted and written. I missed the prequel that aired earlier this year, so I'll have to wait for it to come out on DVD.

I bought Undercover Pursuit by Susan May Warren a few weeks ago. Last weekend, I bought A Feasts for Crows by George R.R. Martin. I have book two and three in the series ordered, and I just found out that there will be a fifth book out this summer.
The Last Day of Kindergarten
Books in the mail for the last two weeks are: Colby Agency: The New Equalizers - Damaged by Debra Webb; Merciful by Casey Adolfsson (currently reading); The Diet Joke by Lisa Pedace (finished today, review coming soon); and The Last Day of Kindergarten by Nancy Loewen (finished, review coming soon).
