Questions:

  1. Would you rather travel to the deep sea or outer space?

Could you ask a more difficult question?? I mean………..crap. I think I’m going to have to choose deep sea but you should feel bad for making me think so hard about this. I want to see all the sea critters. I want to see space critters too but I think I’m guaranteed a few sea critters. Aliens, please make contact soon because, why not?

2. Are you artistic?

Is ‘sort of’ an acceptable answer? I can do STUFF. Just not anything particularly GOOD.

3. How many books did you read last year?

Forty.

4. If you could live any one historical figures life, which would you choose?

I think I’m going to have to choose the Notorious RBG.

5. Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter?

Autumnnnnn.

6. Which character in a book would you most like to be?

Full fantasy mode with this one, Julia (aka Aurelia Ryder) in the Kate Daniels series. I dig her powers, her attitude and her obviously future mate. (But I’d like to stay a brunette please.)

This were some pretty fun questions so I’m going to keep them for my tagged peeps:

Ignited Moth

The Shameful Narcissist

Imperial Rebel Ork

Grab the Lapels

Bookstooge

Anyone else who would like to jump in, feel free!

I can’t believe I actually got around to doing one of these. I’m just not a good tagged person, I frequently forget about them. :3

Coffee & A Chat – Cat Butt

I don’t get no respect.

Hello my favorite little weirdos! It’s the first Coffee & A Chat of 2020. A post where I just ramble about whatever I feel like because I can and I will.

First and foremost – I HAVE BOUGHT ZERO BOOKS IN JANUARY. I didn’t think I could do it but I did. I’ve been on an Urban Fantasy kick as of late and I own quite a few of those. I’m also working on a controversial non-fiction read. I take my time with non-fiction though or I don’t enjoy it as much. I have to finish it by March 3rd as that is when my Kindle Unlimited ends and I do not plan to renew it. I find I can read most of what I want that’s available on Unlimited within a month or two.

I’ve decided to not stress myself about posting on the blog so there may some weeks where I post frequently enough and others where I only post once. That does not mean however that I’m not going to keep up on YOUR blog posts. It’s a part of my morning coffee-before-work routine to see what everyone else is up to.

It hasn’t been a REAL winter here in my part of Michigan. All rain and ice and very little snow. Why am I complaining about this? Because it means I have little excuse not to go out when people ask us to and I was really looking forward to using that excuse to stay home more.

Mr. C&M and I have a lot of metal concerts planned this year. With no vacation to save up for, we’ll be doing more fun little things.

Tomorrow is the Super Bowl, which in general, I don’t care about BUT my boss has a crazy party every year so either I need to run out to buy a snack to bring or find an easy baked good to make, so ta-ta for now!

How has 2020 treated you thus far and what are you looking forward to the most???

Fly on the Wall Podcast

Ello mates! Just dropping a post to inform you that the incorrigible Imperial Rebel Ork was kind enough to read one of my book reviews on his podcast, Fly on the Wall. His cohort Waz, reads it in a fun “Michigan” accent.

It’s a fun little podcast that is quickly gaining speed. So if you’re looking for something that will make you laugh, and may be considered slightly offensive at times, this is definitely the podcast for you.

Thirty Two, Wooo!

Hi friends! Tomorrow is my 32nd birthday, and as such, I’ll probably be MIA for the weekend. My dad and uncle are coming to town to celebrate and I just want a weekend of fun and shenanigans.

My coworkers threw a lovely little party for me yesterday at work since I took the time off. They got me an Instant Pot (Woooo! Time to try a million new recipes!!), a giant bottle of my favorite tequila, and a gift card to Bed, Bath and Beyond since they know there are a million things I want to buy for the house.

My husband couldn’t wait until my birthday and gave me a present. A custom made Harry Potter purse with little secret pockets inside. It’s really cute.

I just have to get through today at work, then it’s a margarita fueled weekend for this girl!

P.S. Don’t be depressed about entering your thirties, they’re seriously the best.

Instagram & Authors

After a year of shenanigans on Instagram. I’ve had some fun and learned some things. One of which is that, if you’re a bookworm, it’s the place for you. Not only are there plenty of bookstagrammers to follow and ogle their pretty books, but it’s a great place to interact with your favorite authors as well. Recently, Brian McClellan, author of the Powder Mage trilogy, requested bookstagrammers to read his new UF series and give feedback and I was lucky enough that he said yes to my request. This gave me the idea for this post, link a few authors and why their IG accounts are fun to follow.

Brandon Sanderson  regularly signs his books in random bookstores in airports and then lets you know where you can find them.

Kevin Hearne – travels a lot, posts interesting food and cocktail drinks. Shares his fondness for whiskey.

Brian McClellan – besides ARC offers, he posts his cat and dogs, and his cooking.

Delilah S. Dawson – she gets up to a lot of shenanigans. Conventions, pets, Star Wars and her friendship with homie Kevin Hearne.

Chuck Wendig – posts a lot of beautiful outdoor pictures from his daily runs.

Who are some of your favorite authors to follow on IG?
