Blog Hopping 10/28/2011

Welcome, fellow bloghoppers! You're looking at my personal blog, home to the rants and ramblings of an aspiring author. I also do reviews of werewolf books, which are here. New this week is a review of Brush of Darkness!  Come this Monday, we'll have a review of Eternal as well. Have fun hopping!

This weeks ice-breaker for the Book Blogger Hop:

“What is your favorite Halloween costume? Even if you don’t celebrate, what kinds of costumes do you like?”

Eh, not really a fan of Halloween. But, when I was a kid, I was a huge fan of the Ranklin-Bass animated film version of The Hobbit. So my mother, who at the time was still a stay-at-home mom, made me a Bard the Hunter costume, complete with bow and everything. We went out trick-or-treating, and everyone commented on what a great Robin Hood I made.

People have no appreciation of good literature.

This week's ice-breaker for TGIF @ GReads:

"Spooktacular Reads: Which books do you consider festive Halloween reads? Which stories have chilled you to the bone?"

Umm, didn't we get this exact same question a few weeks ago? Well, in any case, I'm not really into scary stories. I've only read one real thriller for my blog, but it's a good one: David Wellington's Frostbite. A page-turning suspense read about the evil done in the Canadian Arctic by werewolves and ordinary men both. Fun times. ^_^

Also, while I have the opportunity, I'd like to apologize for my conduct on the hop last week. The "question" offended me and seemed uncreative, that is true. But the right thing to do would have been to skip the hop that week, not create drama. Sorry.

And that's all until next week! Have a look around, and happy hopping!


  1. That sounds like an awesome costume, and you're so right about people not appreciating good lit.

  2. Ooo, Robin Hood! I've never thought of that one. But, then, if I were to dress up as that character I'd probably want authentic everything - including the bow and arrow. *lol* Good one!

  3. OHMYGOD! I was in loooove with The Hobbit! This song still makes me get all teary and nostalgic!
