CSN Giveaway and Blog Hop!!!

When the time comes to leave the nest, I want an apartment with at least two bedrooms. I'm not married and I don't have any children. So why exactly do I need the extra bedroom? I want one room to be a library/office. A place where I can blog and read. at an L Shaped desk. I'm drooling over several of them, especially the Saratoga desk. With so many price ranges, I know I'm getting one in the future. I can already see myself in one. I'll prop my feet up on my desk after writing about the latest bestseller, and just relax in my home library. I know many of you have a similar fantasy.

CSN is offering a $25 gift card to one of my wonderful followers. All I ask is that you be a follower of my blog, and leave a comment on this post or e-mail me at I will pick a winner at random on Monday. Good luck!!

Now on to the next piece of business on the agenda....the blog hop!!

Book Blogger Hop
Every week Jennifer at Crazy-for-Books ( hosts a blog hop. Put your link in, post a comment and you can discover a lot of great blogs. The Hop lasts Friday-Monday every week. This week's question/task: Who's your all-time favorite book villian? That's a tough one? I had to look at the stacks of books I've read recently. And my eye feel on this book...

Darkest Child: A Novel

The Darkest Child by Delores Phillips. The mother in this book is evil. She tortures and belittles her children. I can't fathom such things because I didn't grow up that way.
Note: I got to meet Jodi Picoult on Thursday. It was awesome and she signed a copy of her latest book Sing You Home and my copy of My Sister's Keeper. I'm working on post about it and I have a few pictures. If I have enough nerve, I will make another vlog. Stay tuned.


  1. I have trouble reading books with evil mothers. I guess because I am one. Please consider voting in my poll and joining my YA Book Award Challenge.

  2. I voted in your poll. I'm not sure I can do the challenge. I'm a slow reader.

  3. Hi! Just stopping by on the hop.
    Have a great weekend :)

  9. Hi, just hopping on by. I find books like that a really hard read, can imagine why the mother would top your villain list.

  10. My favorite book villain is, hands down, is the Napoleon of crime -
    Professor James Moriarty.

    It took me less than ten seconds to come up with my answer. But you'll

  13. It's a hard question, isn't it? I mean by favorite does that mean we like the villain? Nice blog!

  14. Hi, just hopping on through. Check out mine: I'm also a new follower. :)

  15. Wow! Did Anne Bennett from headfullofbooks just admit to being an evil mother?
    Can't believe no one has commented on that.

    I've always liked Snape from Harry Potter... He turns out to be a good guy in the end. But, I was loyal to him from the start, even when everyone still thought he was a baddie.

    If I had to choose a villain who is just gross and unlikable though (I'm not sure why you'd call that a "favorite" but, whatever) I'd have to say President Snow from The Hunger Games. He is creeeeepy!

  16. Oh my god. I just looked at Anne's comment. I glossed over that. I haven't read Harry Potter or the Hunger Game series yet. I have both, but it will be a while before I get to them.

  17. I follow you publicly on GFC "Crave to Save". Thanks for the giveaway!
