I go where the in crowd goes

I've gone Beta. Sweet.

So I don't really see too much difference yet, though the tags are fun. I went through and tagged all my reviews by rating. Here's the breakdown of how many of each I have so far:
8-10: 18
6-7: 42
3-5: 14

Seems like a pretty good mix. (I still haven't given anything lower than a 3, I don't think I have it in me.) I'm going to put links on the sidebar so people can access by rating. Cuz I'm anal retentive like that. I also noticed that I've found more 8-10 books the longer I've been blogging. I think it's because of all the good recommendations I get. YAY!

And I have to do this thingie that's going around--

grab that book

1. Grab the nearest book.

2. Open to page 123.

3. Find the fifth sentence.

4. Post the text of the next four sentences on your blog along with these instructions.

5. Don't you dare dig around for that "cool" or "intellectual" book on your shelves. (I know you were thinking about it.) Just pick up whatever is closest.

Can you guess my book? (LOTS of you should know this one.)

Blindly she lifted her face, and he kissed her. His lips seemed to wring her very soul from her body.
Sara clung to him, wrapping herself closer until her aching breasts were wedged against his chest. He took hold of her waist, pressing her to his groin.

Hee hee! I luuuurrvve romance. His lips wring her soul from her body? Makes me think of the Dementor's Kiss. That's gotta hurt.

Not sure why but tonight I can't post any comments when I log in so all my comments are from anonymous. Ugh.

I blew the picture up but I have no clue what it is but that might be a good thing ;)

LMFAO!!!! A Dementor??? I was just re-watching Harry Potter and listening to the audibooks. LOL.

Is it wrong that I loved the Dementors? I was hoping they'd sucked the life out of a few characters cuz it was cool when they did.

:-P

Dementors are freaky deaky.

I don't know that book. :(

Mailyn said...

dude I love the Dementors. they even have a hella cool name. :-(

Cindy--The picture is of a dementor from the Harry Potter movies. They're scary things that suck people's souls out. Eeek! They're pretty gross.

Mailyn--I love the 3rd and 4th HP movies, though the first two were boring. Dementors have killed off a character, haven't they? I'm having trouble remembering. Maybe Crouch Jr.? Didn't they get him?

Ames--The book is Dreaming of You. It's pretty impossible to guess books from such a short passage, isn't it?!

Mailyn said...

I can't remember if they did in the movie. I must rewatch LOL.

Oh and I love all the movies but I usually like all that special effects stuff. ^_^

Valeen said...

I was just going to say DEREK CRAVEN's book! LOL but you've said it already.

Awesome book. And it does sound like a Dementor.

Jennie said...

Valeen--Good catch! Four lines isn't much to know the book from. I'm going to start DoY next I think. I've been told by a ton of people that it's good. :)

Dylan said...

I was going to say that too, Valeen. Not because I knew what book it was from, but because it said Sara...and I was going to guess! haha.

Valeen said...

LOL - Dylan, that's what gave it away for me too.

Jennie - DoY will rank right up there with Derek Craven. Sebastian runs a tight second.
