My Halloween Bingo List

I´m starving myself of words until it starts so I won´t end up getting burned out in the middle of it.  I´m sick anyway so need to rest or working on my new project - diamond painting.

Barnes and Noble Readouts: Free ebooks (some suitable for Halloween BINGO 2017)

I need more freebies downloaded like I need more cat fur on their favorite chair -- but, I'm snagging some as backup because might be useful for BINGO squares.


Don't forget to also check the booklikes deals by genre category for potential freebies.  (Like http://booklikes.com/dailydeals/free/178/horror and http://booklikes.com/dailydeals/free/374/romantic-suspense ) And, of course, please support booklikes if buying new books from Amazon by using the link on the booklikes book page.


I downloaded (not read, not familiar with authors) these that fit one or more squares:


Not Quite Dead (A Lowcountry Ghost Story) - Lyla Payne Out of Time Series Box Set (Books 1-3) - Monique Martin  Runes - Ednah Walters  Better Off Wed (Annabelle Archer Wedding Planner Mystery Book 1) - Laura Durham,Laura Durham  


Not Quite Dead (A Lowcountry Ghost Story) - Lyla Payne 

Out of Time Series Box Set (Books 1-3) - Monique Martin 

Runes - Ednah Walters 

Better Off Wed (Annabelle Archer Wedding Planner Mystery Book 1) - Laura Durham


I would have downloaded this free mystery one except I boycott books (unless an already fave author) whose Amazon descriptions are buried by quoted praises:


Once Gone (a Riley Paige Mystery--Book #1) - Blake Pierce  Once Gone (a Riley Paige Mystery--Book #1) - Blake Pierce

Is there still a blog here? | On my absence and plans for the future


The short answer is yes, there still is a blog here. The long answer is more complicated and requires some explanation.


Is a three-month absence too long to blame on technical issues? 

Unfortunately, it was not a broken computer, slow Internet, or a three-month long blackout that prevented me from blogging.

The dangerous difference between unlikeable and intolerable


There is a fine line between annoying and intolerable. Personally, I have danced across this line so often that I am very familiar with the difference. Unfortunately, there are some characters who are completely unaware that there even is a line. 

All readers have met unlikeable characters sometime in their book adventures. These are the characters who make your blood boil and your veins bulge in frustration. For some reason or another, they get on your nerves. In fact, they are a common literary tool used to stir up emotion within the reader. Think about all of the romances that are hate-to-love. In the beginning, we all hated Rhys from A Court of Thorns and Roses (and even though some of us still hate him, you get the point), Will Herondale from The Infernal Devices, the Darkling from The Grisha series, even Haymitch from The Hunger Games. When I think about it, there are a lot of characters who started pretty high on my "I'd-love-to-watch-you-burn" list, but ended up on my list of favorite characters. I classify these characters as "unlikeable" since they rub me the wrong way sometimes, but have not completely lost their chance for my respect. 

But, there is another kind of annoying character. The kind that crosses the line between decent indecency and hateful scumbag. These characters are definitely unbearable, but sometimes it can be hard to discern when they changed from merely unlikeable to full-blown intolerable.


Find out what will make a character annoying (and even intolerable) to me, as well as how characters can have a chance for redemption.

Here's to many more books, many more reviews, and sharing the joy of reading!
