For What It's Worth

Sunday Ramblings…

This was me for most of this week….


But then my cat Figment did something silly and made me laugh. I yelled at him not to get on the table. This was his way of getting around that rule while still drinking the leftover milk from my cereal. I guess he’s not technically “on” the table.


Let’s wrap this week up and move on!

Monday: Guest post with Sebastian, Aspen and author Nyrae Dawn from What A Boy wants. Hilarious & a really fun guy POV book,
Tuesday: Tune in Tuesday – Wye Oak & The Black Keys
Wednesday: Review: Insurgent by Veronica Roth
Thursday: Book Blogger Confessions topic reminder for Monday. Get your posts ready!
Friday: AAD Spotlight with Melanie Card
Saturday: Winners! of the What A Boy Wants swag & Outpost pre-order giveaways.

Favorite posts from around the blogosphere:
I saw this link tweeted by author Kelley Armstrong (@KelleyArmstrong) for a hilarious website called least helpful – “Daily Dispatches from the Internet’s Worst Reviewers”

I love this review of Insurgent by Engarde.Our opinions differed on a few plot points but it is really well written & one of my favorite reviews for the book so far. Warning! Spoilers in this review!!

What I’m reading – wrap up for the week:
I started Graffiti Moon by Cat Crowley– cute so far
Read Still Hot For You by Diane Escalera – meh. Not really the book for me but it did get quite a few good reviews on goodreads. Short and sexy – but more on the side of erotica which really isn’t my thing.

  1. OOOH, thank you, Karen! Least helpful just cracked me up :))) That bear and his bear ways in Jungle Book... Ahahahaha! Hope your next week will be better!

  2. HAHAHAHA!!! Those pics are hilarious!!!! They made me smile for sure!! Thank you!

    I need to get my bbc post ready!! thanks for the reminder!!

  3. Lol That pic shows exactly how I feel this morning. But now I'm laughing so it's all good.

    I must start the Ghost and the Goth series. It sounds great. I can't wait to see what you think of Graffiti Moon. I really enjoyed it.

    Have a great week!

  4. Lol about Figment! He reminds me of my parent's dog. When we tell him to stay on his little cot, half the time he hops off and just leaves his back foot on it. Technically, he's listening, I guess! Haha. :)

  5. LOVE that cat photo. How is a cat supposed to resist a bowl of milk? You were tempting him...

    Graffiti Moon!!! So good! It's on my favorite reads of 2012 list. Which is still in my head..

  6. LOL! Yes not technically on the table! What a smart kitty

  7. I like your "free to a good home" feature - space is my big issue with why I don't buy more books and your solution just never crossed my mind :-)

    1. Thanks!
      I kept doing random giveaways here & there. This seemed like an easier way for me to stay focused and keep track of it. And make room for more books! lol

  8. This is why I *love* kitties - they're such smart little stinkers,
    my two are always doing something to crack me up lol

  9. Thank you so much for your kind words! I'm glad you liked it. I cannot wait to see where Veronica Roth takes the series next. :)

    1. She really kept up the intensity in Insurgent. I can't wait to read how it all ends.

  10. I like the look of Body and Soul. I will have to check that set of books out.

    1. I just finished reading and it and it was such a fulfilling conclusion to the series. Yay!
