1. When I fell in love I knew he was “the one”!
2. It’s wonderful when the flowers bloom and it heats up outside!
3. Oh no! The internet connection is down, I will frantically run around trying to fix it before I realize that I can’t at the moment and will then delve into a book.
4. House is the craziest tv show ever. (But I love it!)
5. Cheese and macaroni make a great meal!

First Line: I dream dark dreams.
I finished my second challenge! Woo! I just finished the What’s in a Name Challenge hosted by Annie. This one seemed to be difficult for me. I think I changed every single selection that I had made at the beginning of the year. LOL! Oh well. I thoroughly enjoyed this one, though.
As laid out by the rules, the participants were to read 6 books with different words in the titles. Color, Animal, First Name, Place, Weather Event, and Plant were the words that had to be in the titles.
For this challenge I read:
- Mary Higgins Clark, Two Little Girls in Blue
- Tom Coffey, The Serpent Club
- Erica Spindler, See Jane Die
- Mark Fuhrman, Murder in Greenwich
- Iris Johansen, Firestorm
- Ann Rule, A Rose for her Grave
I believe that the Johansen and Rule books are the only ones that were on my original list. The others I exchanged for some reason or another. LOL. Not quite sure why!! Oh well! I thoroughly enjoyed this challenge. I was able to overlap three of these books with other challenges.
Favorite: See Jane Die (Spindler)
Least Favorite: The Serpent Club (Coffey)
Overall, great challenge Annie!!

First Line: My name is Kinsey Millhone
Okay, so I’m a little bit late. Apparently, Andrew Britton died on March 18. I recently read his book The Assassin. I enjoyed it and am upset that I will only be able to enjoy the two other books that he published before his unexpected death at the youthful age of 27. You can read about his death (again, sorry I’m so late in discovering this!) in this Raleigh Chronicle article.
- When somebody mentions “literature,” what’s the first thing you think of? (Dickens? Tolstoy? Shakespeare?)
- Do you read “literature” (however you define it) for pleasure? Or is it something that you read only when you must?
When someone says “literature,” I generally take it to mean the classics. I should probably broaden my definition, but that’s really the first thing I think of when I hear the word “literature.”
LOL! Um, no. I do not read my definition of “literature” : classics. Some of the classics are okay, others I just cannot get past the language. I’ve had Les Miserables on my nightstand for 4 months and have only made it to page 27. (I officially gave up last week). Now, give me a classic like Huckleberry Finn or To Kill a Mockingbird and I’m fine. But I really don’t like the really super classic classics. If that makes any sense?! Haha!
