Book Meme: Day 10

| August 31, 2010

Edits are done – for now. Now I get to sit back and relax, er, write more stuff. I’m finding it difficult to get back on the writing wagon, but that’s just me being a lazy-ass. It happens. Day 10 – A book you thought you wouldn’t like but ended up loving

Book Meme: Day 09

| August 27, 2010

Wow, I so fell off the wagon and landed hard. Edits for Bluebeard’s Machine are keeping me up late and the book I’m reading is so dissapointing… and that has nothing at all to do with this post. Day 09 – Best scene ever Easy, peasy.

Book Meme: Day 08

| August 15, 2010

Argh, so updating the blog for an every-day meme isn’t going as well as I’d hoped. I could make excuses – I’m hip-deep in revisions for Bluebeard’s Machine, or the Fringe festival and mini donuts are maybe 100 feet from my house – but they’re just that: excuses. So… here’s day 08! Wheee! Day 08 […]

Book Meme: Day 07

| August 12, 2010

Day 07 – Least favorite plot device employed by way too many books you actually enjoyed otherwise I’m not a fan of “Chosen Ones”. Seriously, writers. That’s lazy plotting. I’m far more interested in people who do because they have to than people who do because they’re destined to do it. Chosen Ones are often […]

Book Meme: Day 06

| August 10, 2010

Day 06 – Favorite book of your favorite series OR your favorite book of all time This is SO HARD. Favourite books are like potato chips. You can’t just have one. I have huge soft spots for The Manual of Detection and The Last Unicorn, but I’ve talked about those already. This question is a […]

Book Meme: Day 05

| August 9, 2010

Day 05 – A book or series you hate Hate is such a strong, ugly word. It should really only be reserved for things that deserve it – rape, murder, unfettered greed, senseless violence, etc. Most books don’t deserve that and I can’t think offhand of a book worthy of being hated, so I’m replacing […]

Instead of Day 05 of the book meme, I’d like to show you all something better.

Book Meme: Day 04

| August 6, 2010

Day 04 – Your favourite book or series ever I don’t have just favourite book ever. I can’t. It’s like having a favourite food – how can I judge one taste to be better than another when they’re so different? It’s like comparing oranges to chocolate cake. You can’t. When I was a kid my […]

Book Meme: Day 03

| August 5, 2010

Day 03 – The best book you’ve read in the last 12 months Oh man, this is hard. I’ve read a lot of good books lately. Like the aforementioned Manual of Detection, or the oddly laid-out treasure box that is The Complete Works of TS Spivot. I love it when the idea of what a […]

Book Meme: Day 02

Day 02 – A book or series you wish more people were reading and talking about
