June 6: Sidekick

My favorite sidekick from recent reads has got to be the Direwolves of the Stark and Snow children from Game of Thrones.  And Ghost, who belongs to Eddard Stark’s bastard son Jon Snow is my favorite.  Ghost don’t play and I love that he was the perfect wolf for Jon.  He was the outcast of his brothers and sisters, like Jon, and his fur is as white and brilliant as, SNOW.  There is nothing he wouldn’t do to protect Jon, and I love that in the cold and harsh place of the Wall, Jon has a loyal and trusted friend he can always depend on.  And frankly I just have a thing for wolves.  And Ghost is so beautiful with his white fur and red eyes.

June 13: Fave Authors

This will always be the hardest question when it comes to books for me.  But I’ll just go with the ones that are automatic buys for me:

Francis Ray:  I’ve loved her books since I snapped up her book Only Hers from the bookmobile by chance when I was a young teen.  Maybe even younger.  That is my all time favorite romance book and I make a point to read it at least once a year, sometimes more.  Though I’m so used to her writing I know exactly what I’ll get, I still can’t resist buying and reading her new books.

Jude Deveraux:  She writes some of the most AMAZING historical romance, and time travel books I have ever read.  I can always get lost in her books and even love her contemporaries because she always manages to incorporate a little mystery.

Beverly Jenkins:  After I got into historicals I wondered if there was anyone writing AA historicals, and I found Beverly Jenkins.  I’m so glad I found this author because she can work magic in her stories.  I always get to read about the most amazing historical AA characters, and the obstacles they had to overcome.  She also layers her books with real historical events, which makes them all the more interesting.

J.K. Rowling: Really no explanation here.  She wrote the most wonderful and memorable series ever, and I will always be grateful to her for giving me Harry Potter.

June 20: Children’s Book

Loved this book as a kid because the two perspectives of the kids are similar but in different ways.  It always reminded me a lot of me and my brother and I have a copy of this book to read to my nephew once his attention span gets better.  Judy Blume just knew how to reach the kids with her work.

June 27: Bookish Sites

Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million, and Amazon.  Really anywhere I can buy a good book and find a good sale!


Current Topic!:


July 4: Favorite Character

I’m sure you all know this by now!  Dear Jacob Black….you will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart.  I can’t imagine having finished the Twilight books without your entire existence.  YOU kept me reading until the end. YOU kept me entertained.  YOU were a big mass of  sweetness, loyalty, and manliness all rolled up in gorgeosity.  You are my dream friend, and if you were real, you’d be the perfect guy for me.  Too bad you got shafted in Breaking Dawn.  But know my love for you is undying if you ever want to drop the kid and have a ‘normal’ relationship!  LOL….Jake, as a character, you are PERFECTION!

    HAHA Jacob is totally why I finished the Twilight books too. It certainly wasn’t Bella’s sparkling personality (BTW she is prob my most hated character of all time) or Edwards obsessive compulsive behaviors.

    Glad you seem to be feeling better!

    Paranormal Romance

    • Jade Jade says:

      I think I abhor Bella just as much as you do, and Eddy….lord Eddy could miss me with the kidnapping, breaking my truck, and controlling asshole behavior. Jake made this series for me.

      And thank you…hoping I can STAY feeling better!

  2. Evie says:

    I love Jake too! He’s such a great character (before the imprinting).

    • Jade Jade says:

      Hi-Five! Yeah that imprinting business sucks for him. I can’t blame him though. Meyers thought that up and gave him such a terrible ending. He was deserving of something so much better than that.

  3. You know I’m with you on Jacob Black love!

  4. I wasn’t always one for using Amazon for bookish finds, but recently I have been finding so many awesome book deals !

    I always felt bad for Jacob too, I’ll be interested to see what they do with his storyline in the final film.

  5. No, I can’t say I was aware of your love for JB! LOL

    And I want a Dire wolf so bad, but hiding it from my mom might be hard.

  6. I am completely using this idea. I have a million and one things going on right now and I love this idea of doing a month of memes in one post. Can I use this idea? PLEASSEE!! 🙂

    • Jade Jade says:

      Of course you can! I just needed an easy way to catch up on all the ones I missed. Feel free to do the same, because I understand being behind.

  7. I don’t really shop at Books-a-Million I need to look into it. I saw all the Twilight movies with my mom before bar prep and I just couldn’t get enough of Jacob. Oh and I love that you picked a Judy Blume book. A friend of mine was just teasing me for buying one the other day. I saw it and it made me smile and I just had to pick it up. Some things never get old.

    • Jade Jade says:

      BAM actually have some of the best deals. I hate there isn’t an actual store near me. And Judy Blume rocks. I bought Sheila the Great not too long ago and am trying to fit in re-reading, Starring Sally J. Freedman as Herself.

      And Jacob…..Le Sigh….I never get enough of him…he is too beautiful for words.
