Monday Memes


Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
This week's question:
If you read romance novels, answer this question:

Who are your favorite “romance” authors? Why?
My answer:
I am not a "typical" romance type of reader, unless there is a bit of suspense in the plot.  I will read authors such as Nora Roberts, Catherine Coulter, Danielle Steel and Sandra Brown.

February is being hosted by Laura from Library of Clean Reads
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of The Printed Page and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”

"Meet Me On Monday!"
Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?" I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!

1. Did you get any Valentine's Gifts?
Not yet
2. What is your favorite topping on something toasted?
Strawberry Jam
3. Do you pick out your outfit the night before?
It depends if I have an appointment or not.  If not, its jeans and a sweater.

4. What food item do you absolutely despise? much so..I couldn't even post a picture of it.

5. Righty or lefty?

well, at least with your romance writers, I have actually heard of them. Not sure I have maybe read more than a book or two of Roberts but I have heard of them!

On the other hand I have read and love those books by Cain. Super a good way.

I despise liver as well. Just the thought of it makes me nauseous!
You've got a lot of great books! Hope you enjoy them all. Happy Reading!

I know you'll be shocked but those are my favorite romance authors, as well. Hmmm. I do add Victoria Alexander in there, though, she makes me laugh!

You got a lot of great looking books! I love the cover of Georgia Bottoms.

I don't really read romance either, but I do enjoy a good love story - yes, I do think there's a difference.

Kate {The Parchment Girl} said...

I don't read much romance either, but I do enjoy Vicki Hinze's romantic suspense novels.

1-No--unless you count the new part for the broken toilet my hubby brought as mine is THAT'S a romantic Valentine gift, right?
2-Raspberry jam
3-No...I am in pjs often during cold days I don't go out!
4-No but ditto your feelings

Happy Valentine's Day, Cheryl! I have a lot of the same TBR books and looking forward to MISS SCARLETT as it is different than I usually read.

I'm a fan of the Chelsea Cain novels, hope you enjoy them!

Lori said...

I can’t just name one favorite romance or romance author. Here is my answer for Musing On Monday.Happy Valentine’s Day

1. Valentines present:

2. What I gotta pick? Nah, I like em' all! ~snicker~

3. Nah I wear sweats everyday unless we're going out.

4. Okra - it makes me gag & Lamb either.

5. Righty, but 2 of my kids are lefties.

Wanted to stop & say HAPPY VALENTINES DAY to my very good lil' cyber-sis!

I don't blame you for not liking liver. Its not on my favourite food list either. yuck!

I choose romantic suspense over romance too. I just started Georgia Bottoms, hilarious.
