Winter Olympics Book Tag

Guys, I confess, I ADORE the Olympics! It’s such a cool time when everybody comes together to cheer each other on, and I love getting to learn about other cultures. Plus, I confess, the sports are so exciting! I always say I love the summer Olympics more, but as I’m watching this year I’m realizing that there aren’t any events in the winter Olympics that I’m not interested in. Except maybe curling. Anyway, we’re only what, three days in?, and I’m already loving watching.

So in the Go World spirit, I went searching for an Olympics book tag. I found this one from Brittany at Beauty and the Bean Boots, who I’m really looking forward to reading more from. You should go check her out!

Because it wouldn’t be October without copious amounts of CANDY!!!!

Actually, I usually don’t each much Halloween candy. But my primary pregnancy craving this year has been for sweets, and I’ve probably eaten more candy in the last 5 months than the last five years. Right now it’s Nerds. I. LOVE. NERDS.

Thanks to The Orangutan Librarian for tagging me! I might have to steal her idea and eat some candy while I do this one, because I’m literally drooling a little…


Apples

Ah, healthy food. It’s deep, meaningful, and probably won a lot of awards, but, um, isn’t really your thing.

I didn’t even GET to the great love affair as I quit about 25 pages in. Snooze-city for me. Continue reading “The Candy Book Tag”

But inside the iron gates, life is even more fraught with danger . . . and the Strigoi are always close by.
