Raine at Passages of the Pen tagged me to play along . She asked some good questions.
Q1: What song aptly fits your current read?
Something Scottish. I don’t really know any Scottish bands, but a quick google search brought up Battlefield Band.
Q2: Which book couple from your 2011 reads is your favorite and would like to see again and why?
Mick and Casey McKee from Have Gun, Will Play by Camille LaGuire. They also appear in some of her short stories. They are a young married couple, gunslingers in the Old West, who get involved in mysteries on a semi-regular basis. He’s a softy at heart, a good guy who adores his wife. She’s a tough girl, the better gunman of the two, but she needs Mick more than she’s willing to admit. They are just such a unique couple and I was drawn to them immediately.
Q3: I recently discovered the Steampunk genre, what book will you recommend for me to check out?
I haven’t actually read that much steampunk, but one I really enjoyed was Soulless by Gail Carriger. I’d personally like to read Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea by Jules Verne, which yes I’m counting as steampunk, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen graphic novels.
Q4: My favorite number is 8 and this was the last sentence of my current read: “Any specific instructions, Don Basilio?” I asked. ~ from “The Angel’s Game” by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I’m curious, what was on page 8, the last sentence of your current read?
“A petrol bomb in a milk bottle to you, dear,” an older crewmember said, and he knew a thing or two about those weapons. ~ from A Double Death on the Black Isle by A. D. Scott
Q5: Who will you cast as lead protagonist and antagonist in the book you’re currently reading?
I don’t have an antagonist yet- I just started the book. As far as protaganist, I think Amy Adams would be perfect.
Q6: I had my first author guest post so going down memory lane, name the author who first dropped you an e-mail to do a guest blog entry on your blog? What genre does his or her book belong?
My first guest post was by J. D. Seamus, author of Last Call, which is part mystery, part mainstream fiction.
Q7: If you had a chance to turn a book into a TV series, which book would it be?
This is actually a tough one. It can’t be a series I absolutely love, because they would totally screw it up. It can’t be one they’ve already done, which lets out several of the mystery series I like. Maybe India Black. It’s adventure, mystery and could be sexy. Also, I think the costumes could be gorgeous.
Q8: You’re inside the bookstore, which genre do you check out first?
Actually the middle school/young adult section, looking for books for my daughter. Then it’s straight to mysteries with a sidetrack through fantasy.
Q9: The genie of the Lamp granted you two wishes, what will be your final wish? (No wishing for more wishes) 😀
To have all my debts magically paid off.
Q10: Zombies everywhere, no humans on sight, you’re the sole vampire around and you just drank from your last blood bag? What do you do?
Have I mentioned I HATE zombies? I don’t even want to think about this one.
I’m not playing by the rules, which say I need to tag people. If you’d like to be tagged, just let me know and I’ll send you a list of 10 questions.
