I so want to be Angel!!!!! I loved this book the most. I hope James is working on number six. The trouble with such captivating fast reads is the hunger for more of the same!

Reading reviews by book lovers like you is one of our favorite things on Goodreads. Thank you for helping other readers find a good (or avoid a not-so-good!) book.

Keep reading (and reviewing!)

Thank you, again, mcsirishart.

Then, as if I shouldn’t gloat or just enjoy the glow, the very next day after receiving the nomination, I fell into a fibro-flare. In spite of that, I have gradually put together a list of some of my favorite blogging sites to nominate. It was very difficult to decide. That said, here are the

My, my! What will I say about myself that I haven’t already shared?

Have I mentioned that I have watched Game of Thrones 1-3 seasons so many times I can’t count and I am nearly finished with my second read-through.

I collect dragons. And they demand to be in my novels.

If Dragon Naturally Speaking came with a cone of silence I would use it for everything!

Blogging is so much fun! I love meeting all the people and seeing what countries they are from! The world doesn’t seem so large anymore.

Retirement (for my husband, disability for me) makes me an adolescent again. My husband and I stay up all hours and sleep in til noon or later.

I hate my mouse-brown hair. I like the gray. I hate shoulder length hair. So… growing and going back to blonde!

My favorite thing to do is laugh!

And here are my nominees:
