Feature and follow Friday! -- Ides of March edition

Here we are again! Technically, the Ides of March fall on a Thursday this year, right after Pi Day (3.14, obviously. Had an awesome chocolate mousse pie to celebrate.)

Hosted by Alison can Read and Parajunkee, I love this little feature. Most of you know it's the only 'official' meme I do. By definition of 'meme', I also do Flash Fiction and kind-of-sort-of poetry/prose of the day.

Anyway! Alison's feature this week is......

And this week's question:

What are the best and worst books you've read this month?

Oh, gosh...
The best would have to be Songs for a Teenage Nomad. It was a great story with awesome writing techniques and something I could relate to.

I read a lot of good books this month, really, there wasn't one that I would deem 'the worst'. There is one called 'A Christmas Jar For Santa' that I don't even want to count because it was more of a short story and took me all of five minutes to read. But, for simplicity's sake, I will deem that the 'worst'.

Even though it was a charming story that I will tell my future grandchildren. Just saying.

And....The Linky! Also, if you've made it this far, I've got a question of my own:

How would your favorite book character handle meeting a dragon?


  1. Hopping through. I haven't heard of Songs for Teenage Nomad. The title definitely sounds intriguing.

  2. As long as the dragon didn't want to hurt his girl my fave character would just walk past it, but if the dragon growled at Bella, he'd bit his head off.

  3. Oh I know tons of people who don't like romance. Actually I think most of my friends don't. They think it's silly. Btw I'm from Texas too! Thanks for the follow and following back!

  12. I haven't heard of either of those. So I don't have much to go by on that. As for the whole Dragon question, my favorite heroine would probably just take it down like she does all those evil vampire's. =D Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and following me, I'm following you in return.

  13. I haven't heard of either book. I will have to look them up. Thanks for stopping by my blog. New follower.

  14. I read a LOT of fantasy, so I suspect my favourite book character would either slay or enslave that dragon. :)

    To answer your question; It was too childish, too boring, too unbelievable. Her mom is very ill but she's off trying to save her friends life....I dunno, just did connect AT ALL...however, I prefer to read adults books more than YA so maybe that why. Lots of my friends rated it poorly too, but then I've heard of people loving lol.:)

    Take care, Happy St. Pateick's Day!!;)
