Back to School Book Blogger Challenge - Day 9

Day 7: Share the story of your favorite teacher or mentor? 

The Back to School Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by Parajunkee. Stop by her blog to join in!

This has been the hardest question of this challenge to answer.  There have been favorite teachers, counselors and a few great bosses.  Even my siblings have been a huge influence on me.  I think that I have to name my dad as my favorite mentor however.  Not just with reading and books, but his encouragement.  Whatever I showed an interest in, he would buy a book about it or a kit or something so I could explore.  He taught himself glassblowing, fly tying and went back to school to become a teacher when he was well past 50.  He was an amateur photographer (like myself) and he wrote poetry and short stories (and even got one poem published).  I don't know if it occurred to him that he couldn't accomplish something.  Thinking about it, I wish I could have more of that chutzpah in my life.  I guess it's never too late.

Let me know who your favorite teacher or mentor is or was.  I'd love to hear it.

Back to School Book Blogger Challenge - Day 8

Day 8: What is the biggest lesson you've learned as a blogger? 

The Back to School Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by Parajunkee. Stop by her blog to join in!

I don't know if I can narrow this down so I came up with a list.  Suffice it to say, I have learned so MUCH as a book blogger.

-Why yes!  Anyone *can* have a blog! (For some weird reason I thought you had to be some kind of "professional blogger.")
-Blogging is a lot of work.  A LOT.
-The publishing industry is a lot more intricate that I imagined.
-I am a slow reader.  (People in my life say I'm a fast reader, but when I compare myself with all the bloggers I know...ummm, no. )
-There are crazy and insecure people out there in the world. 
-There are wonderful, amazing, kind, funny and generous people out there in the world.

Back to School Book Blogger Challenge - Day 7.

Day 7: What are the most inspiring books you've read that have been assigned to you? 

The Back to School Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by Parajunkee. Stop by her blog to join in!

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee and Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko. 

In 6th grade we read To Kill a Mockingbird in English.  I loved my teacher, I loved English and I think it helped to read this book aloud and discuss it in class.  I loved Scout and her relationship with her father.  I loved the spooky mystery of Boo Radley.  I loved Atticus and I loved the insight I gained from this book.  The way people think, human behavior and even plot devices.

Another book that really affected me was Ceremony by Leslie Marmon Silko.  After college I took an online class with the New School on Native American mythology and this was one of the discussion reads.  This may sound cliche but that book changed my life.  I knew about the wholeness of the Universe and how everything is related and interconnected, but when I read this book, I really felt it and understood it. 

What books have inspired you and how?

Back to School Book Blogger Challenge - Day 6.

Day 6: What are some steps you'll take on your blog to keep things flowing smoothly or change things up? 

The Back to School Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by Parajunkee. Stop by her blog to join in!

Oh how I wish I had goals and strategies to make my blog better, more appealing and more fun.  I wish I could think of awesome challenges like this one I'm participating in or great features like Tune in Tuesdays and Stacking the Shelves.  But I stretch myself to the point that I'm just happy when I can read a book and get a post up.  However, I have been thinking about plans for my blog lately, whether or not I'll actually implement them or not is a different story.

-Change my review format.  I'm getting tired of not being able to be more clever with my reviews or insightful.  How many ways can I express what I love about a book?  I want to come up with something different.  I'm thinking of just a list or maybe even participate in the Short and Tweet meme. 

-Get back to doing some features such as Midnyte Snack.  I mean, I love food and I love books.  It should be a no brainer.  Oh wait...I don't like to cook.  That's it!  But maybe I can just buy the food already made.

-Think outside the box.  I would really like to learn more about blogging and get fresh ideas.  Felicia from The Geeky Bloggers Book Blog t old me about Bloggy Boot Camp.  It's a bit pricey, but I'd still like to go.  I've actually started researching where I can take additional Blogging classes and workshops. 

-Use Instagram and Pinterest more.  (Self explanatory.)

-Further contemplate moving to Wordpress.  I sometimes wonder if I should just take the plunge.  Most everyone who has done so tells me I should as well.  I would like to implement all the cool gadgets, and not have to worry about the minor formatting issues I've encountered anymore.  But I also feel - If it ain't broke why fix it?

What do you think about my ideas?  I'd love any advice.  What are some steps you'll be taking with your own blog?

Back to School Book Blogger Challenge - Day 5.

Day 5: Share your own story about what or who fostered the love of reading in yourself. 

The Back to School Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by Parajunkee. Stop by her blog to join in!

My Dad.  Definitely my dad.  Not only did he do all the things on my list from yesterday.  He was always reading himself.  He had his chair, (You know, the "Dad" chair that all Dad's seem to have?) and all around it on the floor were books he had read, books he was in the middle of reading and his big red dictionary.  He would sometimes pick it up, look up a word and go back to his book.  When he was done with one book, "PLOP" it went on the pile.  Then every once in a while he would gather up his pile and head to the library to return them and get more. 

The interesting thing about my dad, was that he didn't read books to me that *I* wanted him to read to me.  He only read what he wanted.  So, I learned that there were only a few titles that he would oblige me with.  Dick Whittington and his Cat, Puss in Boots, Annabel Lee and another poem about a man who froze to death in Alaska, but I can't remember the title. 

It sounds very simple but I know that it helped influence me.  Or maybe it just guided me along to discover what was to become one of my biggest passions. 

Who fostered your love of reading?

Back to School Book Blogger Challenge - Day 3.

Day 3: Share your most memorable school memory.

The Back to School Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by Parajunkee. Stop by her blog to join in!

I'm assuming that this should be book related so I won't go into the embarrassing memories that haunt me.  I'll talk about my bookish memories.  Suffice it to say, my favorite subject was always Reading and English.  I also loved "Free Time," kind of like an indoor recess where most people would do their homework, but of course, I read books.  I also loved when teachers read to the class and library time (when the librarians read to us). 

One of my favorite book memories was from Elementary School.  I saw a poster for Ghosts I Have Been by Richard Peck on the school library window.  Unfortunately, the book wasn't in yet!  Aaaaaaa!  I kept waiting and asking and I'm sure the librarians were fed up with me.  Finally, the book arrived and I bet I was the first one to check it out.  The anticipation was part of the excitement I'm sure, but I remember also loving the book.  Sometimes when you wait for a book, it's not as good as you had hoped, but I do remember absolutely loving this one. 

What are some of your favorite memories from school?

Back to School Book Blogger Challenge - Day 2.

Day 2: If you were/are an English Teacher, share with us your dream lesson plan as far as reading assignments.

The Back to School Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by Parajunkee. Stop by her blog to join in!

I would love to give an entire year long course on the Horror genre (as well as take one - is there a degree in Horror Studies?)  I feel that Horror is an under rated genre and a lot of Horror writers I have talked to state that the genre is kind of looked down upon as low brow, poorly written and with disdain.  I would love to read, study, dissect, analyze and discuss how horror is important and influential in all aspects of life.  I would include fairy tales (the first tales of warning) to flash fiction and bestsellers of today.

Reading Assignments:
Grimm's Fairy Tales.
The Vampyre by John William Polidori.
Carmilla by Sheridan Le Fanu.
Edgar Allen Poe - Maybe this should be an entire course?
Washington Irving.
H.P. Lovecraft.
Stephen King - Again, an entire course?
Peter Straub.
Robert McCammon.
Mercedes Yardley.

There are tons of authors and works that I'm leaving out, so yes, I think Horror Studies, or Horror Literature should be an entire degree!  What books would you want on your course syllabus?

Back to School Book Blogger Challenge - Day 1.

Back To School Book Blogger Challenge Day 1 – Stand up and introduce yourself

The Back to School Book Blogger Challenge is hosted by Parajunkee.  Stop by her blog to join in!

Let's see.  My name is Pam, I live in New York and as far back as I can remember I have loved the following:
1. Reading.
2. Halloween.

When the two combine it's even better.  I love spooky stories and yeah, I'm okay with gruesome and gory, but I really love the subtle scare.

My other passions are photography and travel and I love combining these two hobbies as well.  My souvenirs are the photos I take while on a trip.

I just started to get into gardening and was going really strong but I kind of petered out lately due to a very busy summer.

I'm kind of a laid back person so if you do follow my blog please note I'm a slow reader.  I don't post every day and to be honest, I feel lucky if I get two posts up a week.

So hello and welcome Back to School!

Fear Nothing.

Title/Author: Fear Nothing (Detective D.D. Warren #7) by Lisa Gardner.


Genre: Thriller.

Publisher: Brilliance Audio.

Source: Library.

SynopsisMy name is Dr. Adeline Glen. Due to a genetic condition, I can't feel pain. I never have. I never will.

The last thing Boston Detective D. D. Warren remembers is walking the crime scene after dark. Then, a creaking floorboard, a low voice crooning in her ear. She is later told she managed to discharge her weapon three times. All she knows is that she is seriously injured, unable to move her left arm, unable to return to work.

My sister is Shana Day, a notorious murderer who first killed at fourteen. Incarcerated for thirty years, she has now murdered more people while in prison than she did as a free woman.

Six weeks later, a second woman is discovered murdered in her own bed, her room containing the same calling cards from a previous crime scene: a bottle of champagne and a single red rose. The only person who may have seen the killer: Detective D. D. Warren, who still can�t lift her child, load her gun, or recall a single detail from the night that may have cost her everything.

Our father was Harry Day, an infamous serial killer who buried young women beneath the floor of our home. He has been dead for forty years. Except the Rose Killer knows things about my father he shouldn't. My sister claims she can help catch him. I think just because I can't feel pain doesn't mean my family can't hurt me.

D.D. may not be back on the job, but she is back on the hunt. Because the Rose Killer isn't just targeting lone women, he is targeting D.D. And D.D. knows there is only one way to take him down:

Fear nothing. ~Goodreads.com

Midnyte Musings:  Dark and twisted, Fear Nothing is a solid mystery with a good plot. 

Serial killers, twisted children who grow up into disfunctional adults, and the cops right on the hells of a murder mystery.  The story starts with main character D.D., falling down a flight of stairs and being put on medical leave.  She is mandated to visit a pain management specialist who actually does help her deal with her pain and the mental anguish it is causing.  D.D. was in the middle of a case when she got hurt, but she does not let her injury stop her from investigating.  Her investigation ties in to Adelaid, or rather, Adelaide's older sister, Shayna, who has been in jail for the past 30 years for murder. 

My favorite character is Shayna, Adelaide's sister who is behind bars for murder and has been since she was 14.  She is complex and beaten down by her circumstances, and as the novel moves along it becomes apparent that Shayne has a secret that relates to a current case. 

Although this is the 7th book featuring D.D., there wasn't anything in the book that made me feel as if I was missing something, so don't worry about not being able to follow.  While this is a plus for me, a new reader to this series, it also doesn't bode that well because again, I didn't feel as if I was missing anything.  I didn't need to know D.D.'s character, or how she got together with her husband.  I did enjoy this book, but with the exception of the Day sisters, the other people in the book could have been anyone.  Detectives, husbands, etc.  Maybe if I had read the series from the beginning I would be more invested in the characters and not have judged them this harshly. 

The story is told in 3rd person omniscient for D.D.'s point of view and first person for Adelaide.  I only got confused once in a while, but I also think that was because of the audio.  It's sometimes hard to tell where there's a chapter or section break.  I did like knowing what was going on in Adelaide's mind though. 

I had a lot of theories, but I didn't guess the mystery until very late in the game, which is always a huge plus in my book.  I like to be surprised. 

Narration:  I think the narrator did a very good job since it was a cast of so many different characters.  Adelaide's "voice" reminded me of Candace Bergen and D.D. was pretty natural. 

Starstruck over:  The insights into the characters and the mystery.

Guest Post: Billy and the Clonesaurus by Stephen Kozeniewski

Depending on when you read this essay, it will seem either wildly out-of-date or strangely apropos. I can't really predict which right now. There are two things which I do know, though:

1.) As I sit down now to write this, the news of Robin Williams's unfortunate passing is blowing up the internet.

2.) At some point, whether in a few weeks or a few months, another celebrity will die and trigger a similar response. So what I say now may seem meaningful again.

As a general rule, I don't comment on social media regarding the death of celebrities. It strikes me as a bit unseemly. It's a bit like making the death of somebody's loved one all about you. And there's no real good way to do it. Even as I write this essay, I feel like I'm navigating a minefield in attempting to be sensitive, rational, and forthright all at once. In fact, why don't I just break my conflicting emotions into those categories?

1.) Sensitive - Robin Williams was a beloved entertainer. People always say "beloved entertainer" when somebody dies, but, no, seriously, this dude was loved by millions. By all measures he was a wildly influential comic genius. He affected the lives of audiences all over the globe, and in his acting and comedy complete strangers felt a personal connection with him. But not only is the average person feeling blue by the loss of an artist they admired, this man was a father, a friend, and a family member to many people, and by all estimations, a stupendous person all around.

2.) Rational - As I sit here thinking about, and even taking the time to write about, a comedian, millions of children around the world are dying of starvation and hunger. That's if they're lucky, and they're not working as slave labor to produce the goods I don't like to pay much for, or being sold into sexual slavery by human trafficking rings. The brainwashed population of North Korea lives in a state of constant bondage, the people of northern Iraq and Syria are now ruled by a cabal of insanely violent sociopaths, and in sub-Saharan Africa an outbreak of Ebola is raging, you know, alongside the long-running AIDS epidemic. Countless people suffer and die every day without a drop of ink being spilled over them, and yet most of the industrialized world is now currently focused on the death of a famous, wealthy man who led a fairly comfortable life.

3.) Forthright - I didn't know Robin Williams. I haven't seen or thought about one of his movies in years. Most people didn't know him. There's a bit of a self-serving streak to mentioning his death online. There's a bit of simply wanting to be part of the conversation, if not outright self-centeredness. Does anybody really care what I thought about Robin Williams? Or is it just important that I comment on his death, and use it to portray myself as a certain kind of person (whether I want to be seen as empathetic, rebellious, concerned about mental illness, or otherwise.) Is everyone simply capitalizing on a death to continue to push that avatar version of themselves that everyone sees online?

As I said, it's this admixture of competing impulses that usually forces me to stay out of the fray altogether. I don't wish to be a complete ass by belittling someone's untimely death. Neither do I wish to be ignorant about the importance of a single death in the greater scheme of things. Nor do I wish to be a phony by portraying myself as some kind of martyr who is suffering the most from all this. So, typically I just bow out.

This time I didn't though. I had a memory last night that struck me out of the blue. When I was stationed in Iraq, Robin Williams came to do a USO tour. I hadn't thought about it in years. In fact, I hadn't even noted it down in my war journal, which is otherwise pretty comprehensive. I actually had a personal memory to share, so I reached out and I mentioned this on Facebook. Just that. “Hey, you know, I saw Robin Williams once in Iraq.”

It got me to thinking about the way we respond to death. Stalin famously (but probably not really) said, "The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic." Callous, and yet, weirdly true. We hear about floods and tornadoes and think, "Gosh, what a shame." But when a person you know dies, you cry or become despondent. Or at least re-evaluate your life.

I'm not sure that's changed over time. There's something odd about famous people, that we feel that we know them. Sure, it’s a one-way street, but we still feel we knew them. Supposedly when FDR died people cried at the news, even his political opponents, because he had just been president so damn long. I don't remember Marilyn Monroe's passing, but it sounds like that was greeted similarly to Princess Diana's, which I DO remember, in an outpouring of sympathy. (And, no doubt, derision on the periphery, too.)

Today, in 2014, with social media, what's different is that we can potentially show off what we think when someone dies. And I think it still tends to fall into one of the three categories I outlines above.

1.) Sensitive – This seems to be the general consensus. People share simple memories, maybe lines from favorite movies, perhaps bemoan the scourge of depression that made Robin Williams take his own life, and thoughts for his friends and family.

2.) Rational – I’ve been seeing this reaction starting to creep in to social media lately. It may be rational, even reasonable, but it sure comes off as jerky. It’s a whole lot of, “Hey, why are you worried about this guy, you didn’t know him?” Or an attempt to tell the most tasteless joke about a dead person as soon as possible. This could represent a genuine disdain for death, which can be healthy considering that we’re all mortal, or it could also be an attempt to use gallows humor or outrage to distance yourself from a sad emotion.

3.) Forthright – I’d like to think this is what I ended up doing by mentioning that I saw Robin in Iraq. Sort of an acknowledgement that social media is a bit phony, and yet artists can and do have a real impact on our lives, and maybe there’s a nice middle ground where we don’t have to tear our clothes but neither do we have to look down on others from our ivory towers for doing so.

But who knows? How we react to death says a lot about us as people, I suppose. My latest book, BILLY AND THE CLONESAURUS, (you didn’t think you were going to get through this whole essay without a plug, did you?) is about how people react to death. I guess you could argue that ALL of my fiction is about how people react to death.

In BILLY specifically, the world is populated entirely by identical clones who are all killed on their first birthday. They mostly go to die willingly, unthinkingly, because a year is too short a time to worry about mortality.

So I threw a wrench into the scheme. What if one clone lived past his first birthday? What if he faced death, survived it, and went on living? How would his view of the world change? And now I suddenly find myself feeling dirty for using a man’s death to sell my own book. But I guess we’re never really done re-evaluating our relationship with the great unknown.

Horror author Stephen Kozeniewski lives with his wife and two cats in Pennsylvania, the birthplace of the modern zombie. During his time as a Field Artillery officer, he served for three years in Oklahoma and one in Iraq, where due to what he assumes was a clerical error, he was awarded the Bronze Star. He is also a classically trained linguist, which sounds much more impressive than saying his bachelor's degree is in German.  You can find all of his work at www.amazon.com/author/kozeniewski.

Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs.

Title/Author: Nice Girls Don't Have Fangs by Molly Harper. (Jane Jameson #1).

Narration: Amanda Ronconi.

Genre:  Paranormal Romance.

Publisher: Brilliance Audio.

Source: Won from Felicia at The Geeky Blogger's Book Blog.

Synopsis: Maybe it was the Shenanigans gift certificate that put her over the edge. When children's librarian and self-professed nice girl Jane Jameson is fired by her beastly boss and handed twenty-five dollars in potato skins instead of a severance check, she goes on a bender that's sure to become Half Moon Hollow legend. On her way home, she's mistaken for a deer, shot, and left for dead. And thanks to the mysterious stranger she met while chugging neon-colored cocktails, she wakes up with a decidedly unladylike thirst for blood. Jane is now the latest recipient of a gift basket from the Newly Undead Welcoming Committee, and her life-after-lifestyle is taking some getting used to. Her recently deceased favorite aunt is now her ghostly roommate. She has to fake breathing and endure daytime hours to avoid coming out of the coffin to her family. She's forced to forgo her favorite down-home Southern cooking for bags of O negative. Her relationship with her sexy, mercurial vampire sire keeps running hot and cold. And if all that wasn't enough, it looks like someone in Half Moon Hollow is trying to frame her for a series of vampire murders. What's a nice undead girl to do? ~Goodreads.com

Midnyte Musings:  This is a very funny book.  Very. 

Some books have humor going on throughout and they can't maintain it.  It gets tiring and in turn, I get tired of always trying to find the funny.  However, this is not the case with this story.  The humor is natural and it is relevant.  Things that run through your mind all day are said aloud by main character Jane,.  Wry observations and sarcastic remarks.  And through it all Jane still remains adorable and cute.  She never really annoyed me and is very likeable.  Her love interest, Gabriel, who also is her sire, is a good character too, but he doesn't stand out as much as some of the others.  I didn't really swoon over him, but that's okay.  I didn't dislike him either.

What I also thought was interesting was the way the existence of vampires was set up.  I don't want to give too much away, but I thought it was done well and it made the emphasis on Jane herself not on vampires, although of course, the story is about her dealing with suddenly being one.   However, Jane is also dealing with her overbearing mother and her conniving sister.  She adores her dad and I loved this relationship, but she has trouble telling her parents about her vampirism.  The book is also about Jane's newfound confidence.  She faces problems that she has to deal with and take a pro-active stance.  The other characters in the book are fun as well.  Dick, one of the other vampires in town who is the "bad boy" and yet very endearing as well as the cast of the Vampire Council and others as well.  I don't have a ton to say about this book, it was a pretty straightforward story, and although I predicted who was behind most of Jane's problems I still enjoyed listening to this book.  It's a light read (I mean listen) and entertaining. 

Narration:  Loved, loved, loved the narration.  Amanda Ronconi has a very sweet voice with a beautiful southern accent that was not too over the top.  In fact, I wold love to hang out with her just to hear her talk.  I didn't really care for the way Gabriel was portrayed.  He sounded a bit too young and schoolboyish instead of a mature and worldy vampire. 

Starstruck Over:  The humor that had me laughing out loud.

Something Wicked.

Title/Author: Something Wicked by Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush.

Narration: Susan Ericksen.

Genre: Thriller.

Publisher: Brilliance Audio.

Source: Library.

Synopsis: YOU SENSE HIM.

Some refer to it as the Colony. To others, it's a cult. But few locals in the Oregon coastal hamlet of Deception Bay have ever been invited to the inner sanctum of Siren Song. Even the sisters who live here, far from strangers who might recoil at their unnerving psychic abilities, don't know all the terrors buried within its walls?


Eight months into a surrogate pregnancy for her sister, Kristina, Detective Savannah Dunbar just wants to wrap up paperwork before taking medical leave. But her department's investigation into a brutal double homicide has suddenly become much more complex ? and personal. And now there are disturbing rumors about the Colony, its matriarch, and a long history of bitter secrets...


Death has come to Siren Song before. But this time there will be no refuge and no remorse. For everything born in wickedness must die that way ? and a killer will not rest until he has claimed them all.  ~Goodreads.com.

Midnyte Musings:  This book caught my eye in the library because of the cool cover and the synopsis promised a cult like community and a supernatural slant.  However, neither really lived up to my expectations.  The cult like community isn't as creepy as it sounds.  It was more like a family with a matriarch who had old fashioned ideas in order to protect her family.  The supernatural aspects were interesting, but perhaps it just wasn't executed to my satisfaction. 

The plot wasn't bad.  It just didn't get my blood pumping or intrigue me that much.  The characters were fine, but I just didn't connect with anyone and so I wasn't really invested in their lives or problems.  There were also events that I didn't understand why they were included.  Did Savvy really need to have a baby in a blizzard on the side of the road?  The narration was quite, um, dramatic during this part as well.  I'm sure some would say a realistic portrayal in an unrealistic circumstance.  Then she went back to work the next day...or I'm pretty sure it was the next day.  To be honest I can't remember, but it seemed really, really...really soon.  Okay, yeah she was the surrogate but still.  I liked that the police work was detailed, but I felt it was overworked.  If the reader didn't know who the bad guy was fairly quickly, I think this may have worked to build up some mystery. 

The villain was intriguing if not very multi-faceted and some may find his actions disturbing.  There is a lot of talk about "powers" that the people of Siren Song possess and they explained it in an interesting and believable way.  I thought this was cool!

The book referenced things that made me think it was a sequel or part of a series.  When I checked on Goodreads, I found out it is #3.  It didn't really subtract from the book, there were just a few details that I didn't have the complete story on.  But again, I wasn't invested enough to mind and they didn't really hinder the story.   

Narration:  The narration didn't really work for me.  I felt like the speech pattern was very forceful and it didn't sound as natural as it could have.  There were a few times, when I really liked blanks portrayal and I kind of wish she had read blank, the main character more that way.  Also, a few of the elderly men reminded me of Peter Parker's boss in the Spiderman movies with Tobey MacGuire.  I imagined them with cigars in their mouths and it seemed a bit too exaggerrated and cartoonish to me. 

Starstruck Over: The premise was interesting and the events opened up more questions about the people at Siren Song.
