Gakked from Book Binge.
1) Which book has been on your shelves the longest?
Well, I probably still have the Golden Book version of Cinderella from when I was around six. Becuz I am a hoarder.
The longest standing adult romance is probably The Dark Master by Charlotte Lamb. I bought this used at a flea market when I was around 11 or 12. Started my lifelong love affair with Charlotte Lamb HPs. Looking back, it’s middle-of-the-road Lamb but it has an extra bitchy Other Woman to make up for it. Yay!
2) What is your current read, your last read and the book you’ll read next?
Current: don’t know
Last: Private Party – Jami Alden
Next: Rogue in Texas – Lorraine Heath
3) What book did everyone like and you hated?
I initially thought about Bet Me or It Had to Be You but I believe that Paradise by Judith McNaught might be more universally loved so I’ll go with that one. If you see me online for any length of time, you’ll know that I am not a McNaught fan. I find McNaught books so manic-depressive that each one should come with a prescription for lithium. Paradise is especially unctuous since it makes references to Meg Ryan and Kevin Costner, two former stars who have self-destructed. I almost feel like Paradise has self-destructed by association.
4) Which book do you keep telling yourself you’ll read?
The Bronze Horseman – Paulina Simmons
5) Which book coming out in 2009 is top priority to read?
It doesnt matter if I read a book early or later than everyone else as long as I eventually read it. The only book that I can say that I am curious to read is Sabrina Jeffries’s Wed Him Before You Bed Him but only because I WANT to know who Michael is. It has been THREE years already! Jebus!
All others I can wait for, including Jeli’s (Jemma & Eli) story in This Duchess of Mine. Hey, I KNOW they are going to get their HEA so I can chill and wait.
6) Last page: read it first or wait ’til the end?
Wait til the end.
7) Acknowledgements: waste of ink and paper or interesting ?
I only read them if the author has an online presence and I might know who the names are.
Which book character would you switch places with?
