Friday Linkups! The Collector by Nora Roberts
Today I'm linking up with Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer for Book Blogger Hop, Freda's Voice for the Friday 56 and Rose City Reader for Book Beginnings on Friday.
Today's question for the blogger hop is:
"Do you think your blog reflects your personality? Does it show organization, a carefree attitude or some other trait?"
My answer: I think it reflect my personality in that I'm pretty organized and list-oriented but I don't always have the best follow-thru! I think I'm fairly good at staying up to date on my posts, comments and replies but not so great at things like tags! It's also a work in progress which I definitely am. I've learned that to stay happy I have to keep learning and so the blog is progressing bit by bit as I figure different things out. Also, it's about the books I read and what interests me so how can it not show some of my personality! Probably in ways I'm not aware of.
This week's book:
"She Thought they'd never leave. Clients, especially new ones, tended to fuss and delay, revolving on the same loop of instructions, contacts, comments before finally heading out the door. She sympathized because when they walked out the door they left their home, their belongings, and in this case their cat, in someone else's hands."
The 56 from page 56 of my Kindle edition:
""This is a nice space," he said, when he straightened. "Good light."
"It really is. And you're making small talk so I won't feel so weird. Why don't I show you where I was when it happened? That's the hard part, and that'll be done.""
So, are you interested? Would you keep reading?
While I've always found Roberts a pretty reliable read (particularly if you overlook her books from the 80s) her last few haven't quite knocked it out of the park for me. I mean I've enjoyed them but none were rereads. Has any other Roberts reader found that to be the case or am I just getting to critical? I'm hoping this will be the exception to that!
