Sharing My World… April 9, 2018

1. Been anywhere recently for the first time?

Yep. The Mordecai House here in downtown Raleigh. That was when I thought Spring had come to stay. Silly me.

2. List three favorite book characters.

Special Agent Pendergast by Douglas Preston & Lincoln Childs

Special Agent Pendergast makes his appearance in The Relic as a southern FBI agent based in NYC  assigned to investigate a slew of murders in the Museum of Natural History. Is it a human psychopath, or did those wacky scientists bring back something not so human and very, very hungry from the Amazon?  Its sequel, Reliquary, has a subway scene that still freaks me out to this day. Pendergast is in a lot of other books, but I kind of stopped caring after Cabinet of Curiosities.

Runner-up: The reporter in the Special Agent Pendergast series. Love Him. That’s all I can say. Love the guy.

John Corey by Nelson DeMille

John Corey is my muse. You can find him in Plum Island. John’s got a cult following, but I only read Plum Island because half way through the sequel, whatever it’s called, John goes and dumps BETH for some FBI SKANK, and I was all, NOOOOOOO. I couldn’t deal, because… I CAN’T SAY WHY BECAUSE IT’S A SPOILER. John, John, John. Pftt.

Tana by Holly Black

Tana can be found in the stand alone YA novel, The Coldest Girl in Coldtown. In a world where vampires are real and taking over, Tana wakes up in a bathtub to find she’s the sole survivor of vampire-led massacre. Even though her instincts are to get the f*ck out, she curbs her fear enough to rescue her idiot ex-boyfriend… and a tied-up vampire who may or may not be a victim himself. In the subgenre of teen vampire stories, Tana is unique because she’s no victim. She’s a hero, and she shines. One of the few books I’ve read where I wished there was a sequel.

3. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink: hot or cold?

Coffee.

Coffee
It’s coffee, darn it. That’s my story and I’m sticking too it.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?

Lilacs.
