{ i'm a literary junkie }


Goings on in Texas

It's time for the December link-up for Literary Junkies and it's some really fun questions.  We had our first twitter party yesterday and while I didn't make it I did read through all the fun.  


1. What are you currently reading? Tell us about it.
Since I've finished Night Circus I've started on "Wallbanger" by Alice Clayton. It's a little more of a explicit it book but the dialogue is hilarious.  I love when the characters have a lot of banter back and forth and conversations like you would have with your friends.


“Wine?”
"Am I breathing?"

“Wine it is” 

And I love the text conversations...

“You done with work?
Yep, at home waiting for you.

Now that's a nice visual...
Prepare yourself, I'm taking bread out of the oven.
Don't tease me woman...zucchini?
Cranberry orange. 
Mmmm...No woman has ever done breakfast bread foreplay the way you do.
Ha! When you coming?
Can't. Drive. Straight.
Can we have one conversation when you're not twelve?
Sorry, I'll be there in 30.
Perfect, that will give me time to frost my buns.
Pardon me?
Oh, didn't I tell you? I also made cinnamon rolls.
Be there in 25.” 




2. If you could choose any author in the world to write a story based on your life, who would you choose to be the author? Why?
I'm pretty sure I'd pick Nora Roberts.  I love the way that she weaves a story and the way she writes her dialogue.  I'm pretty sure she'd make me sound more funny than I actually am.

3. Tell us about your favorite place to read.
My favorite place to read is my little reading corner of the living room.  It's a little couch right next to a table with my favorite lamp.  I think of it as the place where I read all my favorite characters and we hang out together.

4. What books would you buy for lovers of a) suspense/mystery, b) chicklit, c) comedy, d) literary fiction, e)nonfiction, f) classics? (You can choose how many of those subcategories you want to talk about)
I don't really read many other books than my "favorites" so I would tend to buy for what I know I guess. And most the people I would buy books for read the same things too!

For the chicklit...


For the classics...

  10. I'll have to add Wallbanger to my list of to read. The email/text dialogue was my favorite part of the 50 Shades of Grey series. Such a clever way to introduce dialogue and create humor!
