Express Yourself Meme and Celebrate Valentines, Gift Cards, Books and Blogs

"Express Yourself" is a weekly meme. It's goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better, to help motivate one another, laugh (or cry) together, in other words – stalk.



This week: Tell us about some book couples you adore.

1. Ron and Hermione from Harry Potter series. Yeah Rowling wanted Harry but guess what? It didn't happen! Bam! The characters run the show people.

2. Tara and Eliza from The Beginning of Us. The only lesbian couple on the list but trust me their struggles to be together will draw you in.

3. Tobias and Tris from Divergent. These two have been through quite a bit and truly love each other.


Celebrate the small things meme


First off, Happy Valentine's Day!!! OK, unto the next.

Won two Amazon gift cards this week, one from Clare Dugmore's giveaway. Thanks Clare. Whoo! I bought ebooks galore including Cassie Mae's (Becca Ann) latest book and Cassatorm by Alex Cavanaugh at it's $3.99 price. Also bought some other books including Winter Queen by Amber Argyle (at special $0.99 price) and Cinder by Marrisa Myer at special $2.99 price. Not everything was on special but this girl loves grabbing a deal and with $30.00 worth of Amazon G.C. to spend I cleaned up!

Also read Static off Netgally, published by Riptide Publishing. Reviewing next Tuesday and I must say in advance...be there. Another LGBT hit people. And this one deserves a movie. Plus, Moonless by Crystal Collier will be reviewed next Wednesday.

Last but not least my Perfect Match for the Moon Release Blogfest earned lots of reviews and praise. Even got mentioned yesterday on Tara Tyler's Blog. Like London says, "Yay Me!".

See you guys around and enjoy your weekend.

P.S. : I went through my bloglist this morning and quite a couple blogs moved up to the top 50/100. So if some of you who might have gotten a comment from me almost bi-weekly or less start getting weekly/regular comments from me that's why. I love commenting and visiting as many blogs as I can and welcome to the party level new arrivals. Sorry to those deleted blogs I had to remove links for and some that got moved down because of months of no updates. I love you guys but if your blog is gone or not updated for example...since October 2013? Come on, you can't be in my top 50/75 sitting pretty while other blogs being updated regularly are as far as 150 on my side bar. Again love you but...sorry it's just life.

  2. If someone isn't updating, then that's perfectly acceptable.

  3. Tobias and Tris - argh I want to cry just thinking about it. I love Ron and Hermione together, I don't think the series would have worked as well without their relationship.
    Congrats on your gift card, I always spend mine on books too :)

  6. You're that organized in your blog visits? That's amazing. I have been on the blogosphere long enough that there's no way I could visit everyone--we're talking 500+ACTIVE blogs a week, say nothing about individual posts, but I do try to pop in occasionally. Of course there are some places I always stop in. Like here. =)

    Sheena--can't wait until Wednesday, and thank you! You totally rock.

  7. But ... JK said that Ron and Hermoine didn't make sense as a couple and she forced them together. (Because HxH were meant to be in reality) Just saying :)

    Congrats on winning the Amazon gift card! That's so awesome!
