    Types Of Exercise I Enjoy Suffering Through

    All right, who is choosing these Wednesday topics? When forced to choose, the types of exercise I enjoy would fill a very short list! I didn’t grow my bottom to this size by enjoying exercise!

    I don’t like the gym, because I’m a bit self-conscious and I have no idea how to use the equipment. I fall down a lot, so running is out. You can do so much more damage to your face when you fall down at speed! Trust me on THAT!

    Also, if you fall over while rollerskating, your face—and your glasses—can take a beating! I have first-hand knowledge of this fact!

    Walking is about the only thing I’ll embrace, but I need to have a target—I don’t want to walk around the block just for the sake of it. I’m happy to take the dog for a walk. Or walk to the local KFC for a snack! Hahaha! On holiday we tend to find ourselves in places where long walks lead to fun discoveries and in those situations, I’ll walk all day and all night to see the sights.

    So, I guess my answer is walking. And if there’s a reward dressed up as cake at the end, all the better!

    Now, tell me, fit people reading this, what types of exercise do you enjoy?

    Are There Books I Want To Reread?

    Ah Mah Gahd!  Books I want to reread? Rereading? No! Just no!

    Once upon a time, when I was a teenager without access to my own money to buy books, I reread my favourites. Little Women, The Chronicles of Narnia, and The Nimbin all had dog-eared pages by the time I was done.

    Before I had a Kindle, I might have occasionally reread something on my bookshelf, and I definitely gave my well-loved copy of Twilight a workout. (I have to admit to skipping to the part where Edward comes back on subsequent reads. Who needs any part of that book without him front and centre, eh?)

    Now? With eBooks so reasonably priced, and an unlimited supply of new reading material available online at a second’s notice, I’d no more reread a book than fly to the moon! Every time I read something awesome I’m thrilled to move onto the next!

    And the next! And the next!

    I’m a bad blogger this week, thumbing my nose at the topic. So how about you tell me what you like to reread? Because I know that almost everyone will say they love to revisit their favourites!

    My Celebrity Crushes

    Hehehe…. Celebrity crushes.

    A laugh to some and a fight to the death for others (mostly those peeps fighting over whether the Outlander dude is hot. For the record – not hot! Hahaha!)

    Anyway, I never took too much notice of who was cute and who wasn’t. Until I started writing romance. I blame it on hours spent scouring stock photo sites searching for just the right kind of smooth bicep for a book teaser, or a guy with just the right lips so that when we cut his head off for the cover, there’s still something to drool over. It could also be the hundreds of books I now read where that first meeting makes your heart skip a beat. Either way, I can confess to two men I find particularly hot.

    First, and I’m pleased to say he’s older now so it’s not as lame, is Robert Pattinson. *fans face*. I also have a particular favourite photo, just to complete the horror, which I’m sharing with you here. You’re welcome! If you click on that fabulously square jawline you can read the article about how perfect he is and how he is officially the world’s most handsome man.  Take THAT Sam-whats-his-face. You cannot argue with

    Best Book, Movie or TV Couples?

    I’m at a loss for this week’s challenge.

    Besides the couples I’m making do weird shit together in my latest book, (The Billionaire’s Surprise, if you’re interested! lol) I don’t really pay much attention to any others once I’ve moved on to my next target.

    I read books and watch movies and tv, then usually forget about whatever goodness I just enjoyed. There’s just so much content in the world these days that I find it impossible to keep it all in my brain.

    I do have one vivid recollection of a couple though. Does everyone remember THAT kiss from Spiderman? The upside-down kiss? When I think of perfect couples I think

    New Hobby I’d Like To Try

    Err… no.

    That’s all I can think when I look at this week’s blogging topic. Hobbies equal time (and fun- I’ll admit) and more time working on hobbies means less time writing. And I’m REALLY committed to writing.

    That doesn’t mean I don’t have hobbies. Far from it. I even go to craft camp once a year with fifty other awesome women and we talk, and craft, and eat for four days straight! I think this year is the twelfth year the event has been run and I only missed a couple when I was overseas, or too slow to confirm my place.

    So my two current hobbies are crochet and Diamond Painting (I’m not certain of the official name).  I’ve included a photo of the last crochet project I finished so you can admire my genius! The colours of that shawl make me want to start another one, which I dutifully have. I’m also in the middle of multiple blankets, scarves and shawls. lol. Finishing is hard when all your time is spent writing

    Books I Can’t Wait To Read In 2020

    This week’s blogging topic is ‘books I can’t wait to read this year’. I’m writing this post a few days ahead of publishing. That’s kind of funny because knowing me, the moment I schedule this I’ll start reading at least one of the books on the list. By the time Wednesday comes around and you read my recommendations, I’ll most likely have devoured at least one!

    I know they’re gonna be THAT good!

    I have two types of books I’m looking forward to:

    1. The next in series from a couple of authors – one whose books I never miss, and one who is new to me.
    2. Anything, and everything, that JA Huss plans to release between now and the end of the year. (I mean, eternity.)
