  • Fourth Grave Beneath by Feet by Darynda Jones

    Things I learned on Twitter:  That Twitter is still fun, especially for Monday comments and read-a-thons. Surprised I didn't get into the site much until the last two years.

    Daily Activity: Introduce yourself #insixwords  ---- Overplanning bookworm, music fanatic, internet junkie

    Instagram Prompt:  #Currently Reading --- Unfortunately I didn't get to take a picture of this yet. Woe is me and busy Mondays.

      Daily Activity:  Literary Villain
      I fell a little late and behind on updating some of this stuff. Literary Villain is a tough one. I have a soft spot for the bad boys in some of the bizarre romances out there but I wouldn't call them straight out villains. When I think of favorite villains, I think more of comic-book style like certain versions of Lex Luthor from the Superman mythos and Magneto from the X-men series.

        Daily Activity:  Book Trip

        My #1 want to visit spot is definitely Ireland. I first read about Dublin in the Fever Series by Karen Marie Moning, but since then have researched the country. I keep reading how green and beautiful it is, and in my thirties I'm obsessed with nature, nice weather and rain. Being surrounded by water, old castles, green hills, even being called emerald isle sounds perfect. There's a lot of history, lore and legends and from what I've heard the people seem friendly. Number one bucketlist for travel.
