Happy Thursday! Thought I’d forgo my usual cup of coffee this morning and instead grab a current book I’m reading and a cup of tea! This meme is hosted by Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog .
All you need is a book and a cup of tea to participate!
The Book: Started Early, Took My Dog by Kate Atkinson.
I signed up to participate in a blog review for this book solely on the strength of the title of the book. It caught my fancy. I didn’t know it was part of an ongoing series, but so far that hasn’t seemed to make a difference. I’m still in the early pages (60 of 385), so I’m still getting introduced to the main players. Jackson Brodie is an interesting character, and I love that he puts a man bullying a poor dog in his place. Of course he ends up with the dog, echoing Tracy Waterhouse’s earlier, and completely unexpected, rescue and purchase. I still have no idea where this book is going, but I know I want to come along!
The Tea: Peppermint Tea! Right now, as part of my complicated diet, I’m not drinking milk. I like milk in my coffee and black tea. The only way I can drink tea sans milk is to find really yummy teas, and peppermint is my absolute favorite. I almost feel like the grown up my license states I am.
So what’s your current read? And if your a tea drinker, what’s your flavor?
Day 09 – Your favorite exploitation / grind house type film:
I’m sad to say I don’t watch much of these kinds of films so I’m going to have to go with Death Proof. I love any Tarantino movie- the guy’s a freaking, freaky genius, and I love the girl power at the end. The movie also as the super amazing Zoe Bell in it (as an actress and not just a stunt double). My husband thinks I’m crazy, he totally thought I’d prefer Planet Terror, but I love, love, love when the victim goes all kamikazee on the killer. I Spit on Your Grave would probably be second, but I have major problems with some of the plot line in that movie.
I heard that they did a remake of this film, but I don’t think I’ll ever get around to watching it. Once with the original was more than enough.
