Anna Tagged Me! :)

Book Buzz Tag

Here are the instructions:
I am going to list three categories of books: 3 MUST Read Books, 3 Keep Your Eyes on These, and 3 Look for These Soon. Keeping with the theme, I am going to tag at least 3 bloggers. They should put these same lists on their blogs but SUBTRACT one book from each list and ADD one of their own. Then they should tag at least 3 more bloggers. It will be fun to see how the lists change as they go around the blogosphere. Please come back to this post and leave a comment so I can see how the lists are changing. Since this is Book Buzz...please keep your lists to titles released in 2007-2009.

3 MUST Read Books:
Somebody Else's Daughter by Elizabeth Brundage
Without a Backward Glance by Kate Veitch
Mademoiselle Boleyn By Robin Maxwell (I enjoyed this book compared to a vast number that I've read recently. Some really stink, this one was actually very good.)

3 Keep Your Eyes on These:
The Memory of Water by Karen White
Seeing Me Naked by Liza Palmer
Free Range Knitter by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee (Supposedly an essay book like her first book which I've actually re-read numerous times. All knitters can relate to some of her experiences).

3 Look for These Soon:
Feather Man by Rhyll McMaster
The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti
The Devil's Brood by Sharon Kay Penman (My favorite Author really, I own all of her books. She creates a world that's hard to draw yourself out of if you love historical fiction).

For this I tag:
Dawn (Knittinwolf)
Jeanne (Natredknits)

(Please, don't feel obligated to play along!)
6 Quirky Things About Me TAG

Here are the rules:
1. Link the person(s) who tagged you
2. Mention the rules on your blog
3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours
4. Tag 6 fellow bloggers by linking them.
Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger's blogs letting them know they've been tagged.

Okay, Anna's the one who tagged me.
Here are my 6 quirky things:

1. I love forensic TV shows but would pass out to see that stuff in real life.
2. I like a clean house more than my family does. Weird huh?
3. I hate to use the last of ANYthing. I'll save something just so it won't be gone forever.
4. I like "even" years. I always feel that they'll be good years for me. (I was born on an even day, month and year).
5. I like to sleep in very cool room with my electric blanket and heating pad on. (It's a pain thing). And I need NOISE. Have to have my fan going to sleep.
6. I hate sharing the TV remote. I AM the Queen of my own TV. Bossy Bossy bossy.

Again, don't feel obligated to play along (especially if I tagged you twice or you've already played), but here goes:

For this one I tag:
Dawn (Knittinwolf),
Jeanne (Natredknits),
Rikki (SheWolf's Corner),
Ariel (Ariel's Knitting)
Aim (Bumpy Doink)

Have a great day!!

Dawn, thanks for tagging me! I did already play this one not long ago...see this link

Aim said...

Oh, you're one of those "white noise" sleepers, huh?! That's so funny, how some people need that, and some (like me) want total silence!

Dawn said...

I know, I'm so weird! I bring my own fan when I travel! LOL!!! Otherwise I hear EVERYTHING if it's too quiet!

Thanks for giving me that link Aim! I'll check out your answers! :)

Thanks for playing! I'll have to check out those books you mentioned.

My mom is the same way with the fan. I'm the opposite. I need complete quiet, so you can imagine how hard it was for me to sleep when my daughter was younger!
