Bookie Brunch schedule

Now follow me to the second Bookie Brunch meeting for a bit of chit chat at Beyond Strange New Words

Bookie Brunch Question of the day:
People often tackle the issue of characters or plot being unrealistic or not possible in real life.

Are you on the-book-must-be-believable/realistic side or not?

Why or why not?


* get a heads up on free or discounted ebooks from Books on the Knob

* per usual, check out the sidebar for my current giveaways to you

* image from Leafcutter Designs - world's smallest postal service and you can get a letter kit at Chronicle Books

* In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren and inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. A post where we share books acquired via mailbox, library, store, etc.


  1. Survivors looks intriguing as does First Frost. Enjoy your books :)

    My IMM

  2. Great books there :) I am interested in the zombie one

  3. Omg - seriously drooling over Survivors!!!! This is so going on my birthday wish list :D

    ps - you could not PAY me to read Bedbugs, that is one of my *phobias* ;P LOL

  4. I'm going to have to look into First Frost. Happy reading.

  5. Very interesting bookie brunch question! I suppose it depends on the genre and of course, my tastes/mood -- sometimes, I'm willing to forgive something improbable if I like the author or the book overall. If the book is a contemporary, realist style novel, I expect more realism. But I hate it when authors cheat and throw in unrealistic traits/twists to move the story. No fun!

  6. Survivors and Ashes are still free. Must remember to visit the Bookie Brunch!!!
