This week’s topic is:

What is your take on DNF books. Do you review them? Choose not to review them?

Honestly, it just depends on my feelings on the book.  There are some books I DNF and I don’t write a review for, but there are some books I DNF that I feel very strongly about (Carter Reed by Tijan) that I write a review about.

I would say I generally don’t write a review for a DNF, but I’m not opposed to doing so.

What are your thoughts?

Happy reading and have a good weekend.

What are two of your favorite book to movie adaptations?

I will be the first one to admit that I generally do not care for movie that are adapted from books.    There are really only two movies from books that I have liked.  They are:

Jurassic Park – book by Michael Crichton.  Though the book was better, this was a fantastic adaptation.  The movie was intense and scary – I loved it.

jurassic park

The Hunger Games – book by Suzanne Collins.  This movie was amazing close to the book and did all the characters justice.

the hunger games

What is on your list?

Happy Friday.

My favorite Character Archetypes

I had to google the different types of character archetypes – I didn’t know what they were.  Here’s a map:

For male characters, my favorite is Hero.  Since I mostly read romance, this shouldn’t be surprising.  I LOVE alpha males in books.  I tend to gravitate to books with alpha males.
For female characters, my favorite would be the Caregiver.  I like them because I can relate to them.  I’m a mom, and a caregiver myself.
What is your favorite character archetype?
Have a great weekend!

This week’s topic is:

What are 5 websites you love to lurk around that are not shopping sites

That’s easy for me.

  1. Goodreads.  This is probably the website I spend the most time on.  I love finding new book ideas and making new bookish friends.
  2. TV Guide.  I’m a TV addict, and I read TV Guide every day.  Online.
  3. WordPress.  I follow over 100 blogs and I love to keep up them to find new reading material.
  4. Pinterest.  Another fun website, and a go to around the holidays.
  5. Netflix.  I love watching movies and TV, so Netflix is a staple for me.  I mostly watch on my phone, but I use it almost every day.

What sites do you love?

Happy Friday.

This week’s topic is:

Ten reasons you love your favorite genre (I have only seven)

My favorite genre is romance.  Here are the reasons I love romance.

  • The beginning of the relationship.  I’ve been with my husband a long time, but it’s still fun to think back of how we started.  Reading about how you meet that person you know is the one.  It really happens.
  • Girlfriends.  I don’t have a lot of close girlfriends (by choice, I have trust issues), so I love reading romance books with girls who have been friends forever.
  • The sex.  I’m not going to lie – I love it.
  • Watching a relationship grow.  There are usually bumps along the road, but it’s fun to be on the ride.
  • Conflict.  As mentioned above, there is generally a conflict that causes a rift between the lovers.  I find them fascinating.
  • Family.  There is generally family involved.  I love family related romance novels – I read a ton of them.
  • Happy endings.  I love a happy ending.  Most romance novels have one.  Total satisfaction.

What’s your favorite genre?

Happy reading and happy weekend.
