Friday Hops

This week's question: Q. What book that hasn't been turned into a movie (yet) would you most like to see make it to the big screen, and who would you like cast as your favorite character?
Wow. I have seen what Hollywood does to books and frankly it terrifies me. TrueBlood comes to mind. I do love both the books and the series. However I had to divorce one from the other because they are so radically different.   If it was not going to be butchered and changed into an entirely different entity I have several books I would like to see. 
Series I think would be interesting:
Evolutions by Ami Blackwelder.  Midnight Breed by Lara Adrian The Eternal Series by Jennifer Turner.  Fever by Karen Marie Moning Jane Jameson or the Naked Werewolf - Molly Harper Mercedes Thompson by Patricia Briggs Chicagoland Vampires by Chloe Neill
Books that I think would be interesting:
Confessions of a Call Center Gal by Lisa Lim Ghost on Black Mountain by Ann Hite Waiting for Karl Rove by Jenni Decker and Kat Nove Min…

October Happenings on the Blog

Hi all!
Wow The last day of September! This month went fast. October of course means Halloween is here! YAY1 Yes, I am still a kid. haha. I am so excited about Halloween. I love it! Junior has his costume which he kind of  modeled. 

He wanted to be Curios George. The mask actually fits better than he has it but he likes the sensation of it on his mouth. Who am I to argue so long as it does no harm. We went online and bought this from for $25. He was very comfortable in it and wore it for a few hours trying it outside also. He said he was warm in it - the temperature was close to 50. So we are happy with it. I got his little brother a monkey costume too but since he is in Chicago I do not have a picture of him in it yet. Here is the one from the site:   Yes, it is that cute in person too. I can't wait for my daughter to send the baby's picture in it to me.
I received an GR message from author Todd Russell. I had featured his book, Fresh Flesh, on one of my…

Review of Confessions of A Call Center Gal

Confessions of A Call Center Gal by Lisa Lim Kindle Edition, 296 pages Published February 25th 2011 by Giffin Press

* I received this book for review by the author.  No promise of a good review was given. No compensation was offered or received. The opinions expressed are my honest feelings about the book*
From Good Reads:
A fun chick lit that may appeal to fans of Sophie Kinsella. Bridget Jones's Diary meets The Office. Madison Lee is a fresh college grad, ready to take on the world of print media. But she has zero luck landing a job. Unemployment is at ten percent and on the rise. Desperate and left with no other options, she accepts a position as a service rep at a call center in Pocatello, Idaho. At the Lightning Speed call center in Spudsville, Maddy plunges into the wild and dysfunctional world of customer service where Sales is prided over Service and an eight hour shift is equivalent to eight hours of callers bashing her over the phone. Oh sure, the calls are bad. But Maddy man…
