Turkey Tales & Giveaway: Natasha from Wicked Little Pixie

November 25, 2010 Uncategorized 83

Happy Thanksgiving!  Everyday this week, some of my favorite bloggers will be sharing some of their worst reads with us in the first Turkey Tales event.  I did my first ever guest blog for the final blogger in our Turkey Tales event for her annual The Thirteen Wicked Days of Christmas event.  I’m talking about the delightfully dishy Natasha from Wicked Little Pixie.   Although we fall on opposite sides of the Twilight debate (I so did not need to know the extent of Twilight merchandizing that exists), we almost always agree on the books we hate.  Be sure to share… Read more »

Welcome to the fourth day of Turkey Tales!  Everyday this week, some of my favorite bloggers will be sharing some of their worst reads with us in the first Turkey Tales event.  I knew it was coming.  One of my guests was going to pick a Turkey Tale that I really liked.  My friend Angela from Dark Faerie Tales gets that honor.  She is always an insightful reviewer and on the rare occasions we disagree on a book, I can see her points even when they didn’t keep me from enjoying the book (as in the case with her choice). … Read more »

November 22, 2010 Uncategorized 99

Welcome to the second day of Turkey Tales!  Everyday this week, some of my favorite bloggers will be sharing some of their worst reads with us in the first Turkey Tales event.  Another blogger is adding her Turkey Tale to the table. Her choice reminds me all too much of my number one turkey tale and the thought of two books out there as repugnant as the one I read actually makes me nauseous.  What doesn’t make me nauseous (how’s that for a segue?) is my favorite across the pond blogger: Carolyn from Book Chick City.  FYI, that is her… Read more »
