It’s that time again! This week’s question is:

This Sunday in the U.S. is Mother’s Day, in celebration, what are some of your favorite books with strong mother/child relationships?

Hmmm…this is a good question because it is not one I have given much thought to! I’d say Gone With the Wind, Little Women, House Rules, Divergent and Insurgent.

What about you?

It’s that time again! This week’s question is:

Have you had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then “broke up” with later on in either the series or a stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her.

Yes, unfortunately. An answer immediately came to mind when I read this question. Once upon a time, I was obsessed with Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anite Blake series. I loved everything about it and read it for years. I even met Hamilton once. But around book 13 in the series, entitled Cerulean Sins, the series went from paranormal fantasy to paranormal porn. I hung in there for several more books, hoping it would turn around. I even left several very nice, not bashing comments on Hamilton’s blog about the turn the series had taken. But alas, it became more and more porn and less and less actual story and I had to break up with the series. :(

What about you?

Welcome to this week’s In My Mailbox. What is In My Mailbox?

IMM is a meme I started here at The Story Siren with some inspiration from Alea of Pop Culture Junkie.

The idea behind IMM was not only to put new books on your radar but to also encourage blogger interaction. IMM explores the weekly contents of my mailbox & books bought. And sometimes other fun goodies.

Anyone can participate in IMM and you are not limited to only sharing books that arrive via your mailbox. You can also share books that you’ve bought or books that you’ve gotten at the library.

This is a huge IMM! It covers 3 weeks worth of book buying, which included a library sale! Plus, I received a few ARCs!

It’s that time again! This week’s question is:

I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?

Hmmm…I think Hermione is a pretty unique name. I probably wouldn’t have ever heard it before reading Harry Potter if I wasn’t something of a mythology buff. Katniss is pretty unique, too.

It’s that time again! This week’s question is:

What would your prefer: reading your favorite book over and over again until you got sick of it OR reading 100s of mediocre books? And why?

Oh my. I would certainly hate becoming sick of my favorite book(s). However, I have little tolerance for mediocre books. So, I guess I would read my favorites over and over again. At least I know they are good!
