If your WIP(s) or favorite book(s) were a song, which song would they be?
This was fun. Some are more literal than others, but if my books/WIPs were songs:
Frog Kisses and Fairytale Misses -First Cut is the Deepest- Sheryl Crow (first love lost)
One Hundred To-Dos - I Do- Colbie Caillat (the busy cynic who finds love)
Social Disorder- How Sweet It Is To Be Loved By You- James Taylor (perfectly unexpected love)
Cheater Beaters- Before He Cheats- Carrie Underwood (revenge)
Earthbound (WIP)- Imagine- John Lennon (striving for a perfect world)
Now, for A to Z, which is in its final days. Hosted by: Arlee Bird, Alex J Cavanaugh, Jen Daiker and Talli Rolland.
For those who maybe haven't stopped by before, I'm doing a How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest. Each day will feature YA audiobooks I've listened to that have titles starting with that day's letter.
To enter, comment on which books you've read. Most will count as one entry. Older/more obscure books will count as two.
At the end of the month I'll draw names for several prizes including cool bookmarks, books, ARCs and a $10 Barnes and Noble gift certificate.
"A" and "The" don't count in the title, and I'm not using multiple titles in a series or author names unless I'm desperate.
Now for W
