Friday Link Ups:Book Blog News,Crazy-for-Books,The Literary hop, and Chrissie's Radiant Reviews

Good morning fellow book lovers!Don't forget to post links to your Book blog, giveaways,memes, etc....in the
post below this one.(Book Blog News)

The Question over at Crazy-for-Books.com is "What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere
did you not enjoy and how did  you feel about posting your  review?
I couldn't think of any books at first then "Alibi" by Terri Woods I was sorely disappointed that the author
was relying on violence and sex to sell the book.   The main character is a stripper who helps give an alibi to
a thug who murdered someone, which was a great premise but we spent more  time on her antics as a stripper than the actual storyline.  I felt a little  hesitant at first to post my review because this author has sold
alot of these types of books and I was still in that"I -dont-want-to-offend anyone-stage"  Then I thought  about how I would hate it if someone actual bought that book and I was not completely honest so I went ahead …

How sweet Thanks Carolina(Writin block)

Thanks Carolina fromWrite with me was so kind to give me this award make sure you check her blog out. Even thought I've won this before it still feels good to get it .  I believe I am suppose to mention 7 things about  myself and give this to 15 people.   I will try to give this award to 15 people I haven't given this ,too.   Since I want time to think about who that should be I will come back and add their links to this post .(So don't be surprised if the list has grown).  I am a pretty transparent  person (On my other blog ) so it shouldn't be hard to think of   7 things you don't know about me.  For example:
1.  I use to love watching Speed Racer as a kid.
2.I have learned to cook Asian food because I think the Chinese buffets by my house are terrible!

4.I am happily  addicted to coffee.
5.  A Good day for me involves reading, a…

sale of some of the above named substances,I had no intention of stopping.

    At one point during these early  years I decided I wanted to direct movies and videos, so I went to NYU
Film School. One of the mandatory courses  was Screenwriting 101.  I begged to get out of it-I had no talent
for telling stories-but mandatory is mandatory.  If you write, especially if you write fiction, you probably know
what happened the first time I tried to create something.  Even if you just read fiction, you know what I experienced
a kind of mesmerizing dream state, a kind of alchemical, mind-melting trance.  The blogger Laurel Marchfield
