Now for the Q and A portion of this weekend:

Parajunkee asks:

Q. Have you ever wanted a villain to win at the end of a story?  If so, which one??

A. Omg!  YES!!!!—I’ve been reading George R.R. Martin’s A Game of Thrones/ A Song of Ice and Fire series…And I am totally IN LOVE with Tyrion Lannister!!!  *sigh*  I just finished book 3, A Storm of Swords, but basically the Starks are the good guys.  And the Lannisters are the bad guys.  So Tyrion is on the wrong side, which kind of makes him a bad guy…and sometimes he does do bad guy things…which makes him a bad guy…but it’s more like he’s a good guy born on the wrong side…which he seems to be trying to change.  Tyrion’s had an uphill struggle since his birth, every time he seems  to make progress, someone has to knock him down again—The guy deserves a break already!!!!

[CONTEST CLOSED] and p.s.  As long as you're here... Don't forget to enter my AWESOME giveaway.  Yes, that’s right, I said GIVEAWAY!!!!!!

Two of my favorite authors just released two amazing new books—Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs and Vanish by Sophie Jordan!!!!  It seems I’ve collected as a member of Tera’s Venom Squad and Splash Team, and Sophie’s Team Draki.  I have also acquired a SIGNED copy of Firelight from Sophie and a SIGNED copy of Forgive My Fins from Tera (I have my ways), and now is your chance to win a copy!

That series sounds interesting. I'll have to check it out. :)

Lan said...

I am obsessing over Game of Thrones at the moment too. I really like Tyrion but I have to say I'm more of a Stark girl. I'm still shattered about Ned :(

Love your blog. Am following you now.

Jennifer said...

Jinny (SkyInk.net) said...

Thanks for following my blog, I am following you back now =)

Totally agree, it's easy to like Tyrion but he is a Lannister ... sigh! Haha, then again, many of the characters are pretty gray instead of black-and-white ..

Sorry for the late replies, but internet has been wonky :/

Thanks for all the comments!!! :D

@Nimue--I <3 Game of Thrones! Thank you so much--back at ya!!!

@Fairytale Nerd--Thanks for the follow! As for GoT, it was a little daunting, but the only patience I need is to not skip ahead--which would be hard to do, because there is always SO MUCH going on, I'd be sure to miss something if I did!!!

@Bookdout--thanks for stopping back/following!!! :)

@Anna--I would totally recommend Game of Thrones--I've read a couple of EPIC fantasies, and this is definitely one of the most action-packed, fast-paced stories!

@Hayley--awwww!!! Thanks!!!

@Brittani--Thanks!!! :)

@Jenni Elyse--It's hugely epic, but I've totally fallen in love with it!!!

nymfaux said...

@Lan--totally obsessing with you!!! I am definitely rooting for the Starks (and miss poor Ned!)--but I just finished the 3rd book, and as much as I love the Starks, I can't help wanting Tyrion to get a break--It's not his fault he was born a Lannister!!!

@Jennifer--thanks! p.s. I totally <3 your purple color scheme!!! :)

@Jinny--thanks! Agree!!!--It is getting VERY gray!!!

@Kathryn--anytime!--your blog is uber-cute and Frankenstein's monster was a great answer!!!

@Shanella-- :D I would TOTALLY recommend Game of Thrones!!!--but definitely a time/$ investment--I ended up buying it, because there was a HUGE library waiting list, but I they had a boxed-set--I think the first 4 were around $20 paperback, or $30 for ebooks (don't get me started on how backwards that is)--but totally worth it!!!

@Claire--anytime!!! And I'm only on the 3rd book, but I only have great things to say about GoT!!!

@Untouchable Treasure--back at ya!!! I LOVED the HBO series--totally got me hooked on the books (I couldn't wait to find out what happens, next!!!)--would love to hear how you like it!!! :)
