The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Read in May, 2010
After reading Catching Fire, I decided to go back and read The Hunger Games again. I must say I am in complete awe of this series. It is so compelling, and so disturbing. After reading it again, I have decided to up my rating to 5 stars, it is well deserving of it.
My dear friends at a Sekhmet Press have put together an amazing event this month, one I was honored to be a part of. Books, Babes, and the Business celebrates women in fiction. The women featured range from writers and publishers to readers and artists. All these women are crazy talented and definitely worth checking out. You will find plenty of new authors to fill your book shelf.
See the complete lineup here!
My interview was featured on February 20th. This is my first interview and feature on a blog, so I’m a little excited! I talked about the work I do for Hobbes End Publishing, my love for reading, and coffee, of course! And to be featured among such a talented group of ladies is pretty amazing. I hope you’ll stop by and have a look.
There’s also a Facebook party at the end of the month. These Facebook parties are always a lot of fun. Virtual drinks, lots of games, and REAL prizes. You can join the event HERE.
We are moving along nicely with The Doctor Who Project. If you’re unfamiliar with it, learn all about it on Allison’s introductory post. Basically, my friends Allison and Justin and I are ranking and reviewing each season of New Who. This week we shared our thoughts on series three, our highest ranked season yet!
Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk
Read in 2010
This is the fifth Palahniuk book I’ve read. I enjoyed it. It was entertaining, while grusome and disturbing at the same time. I think you either love Palahniuk or you hate him. What I don’t understand is people who don’t like him yet continue to read and bash his books. If you don’t like an author, DON’T read his books. I don’t read James Patterson despite his popularity. Not for me, so I won’t continue reading his books and bashing him in reviews.
Yay! The Doctor Who Project has started. I am so excited about this because it gives me a reason to obsess over one of my favorite things: Doctor Who! You can read all about The Doctor Who Project on Allison M. Dickson’s blog.
The project kicked off Friday with our top ten lists. Remember, this project is only focusing on what I like to call New Who, starting with the 2005 series with Christopher Eccleston as the ninth incarnation of the Doctor. After a lot of debate, I finally narrowed down my all time, top ten favorite episodes of Doctor Who. This was not an easy task. I did several changes before finally just going with my gut.
From Allison M. Dickson:
“Hello fellow Whovians! I’ve been looking forward to doing this blog for a long time and finally the time is here. If you want to read more about the genesis of this project, pop on over to the introductory post. But in short, over the next several weeks, my friends Jaime Hobbes and Justin Wasson will be joining me as we dissect one of our favorite shows ever, Doctor Who. But before we get to picking apart each season and discussing our likes and dislikes, we thought we’d each list our favorite episodes, and we welcome you to do the same in the comments below. Feel free to let us know your favorites or why you agree or disagree with our choices.”

Remember to stop by Allison’s blog every Friday for ratings and reviews, season by season. Please join in the discussion! We hope you have as much fun as we do.
