I’m making a button for my blog (finally), and could use your opinion.
Which blog button should I use?

  1. I'm inclined to vote B (as many times as I may be allowed to vote, that is), but I really love the red in A.

  2. C is my first choice, A second and I'm not crazy about B at all…unless you're only going to be reading a very particular kind of "wild" book 😉

  3. ST – shocked. :)I do think these serve three very different audiences. I've put A up on my blog at the moment, as you might have noticed, because I think it can serve across populations. B. is obviously using sex to sell the blog (and I'm not opposed to that), whereas C. makes me think of a children's book review blog (and I do review that genre of books as well). I think I might go with A. for everyday, but use B & C in specific posts.Thanks for chiming in!

  4. A! I love the picture.

  5. I love A. It's a beautiful image and a gorgeous composition–even if you were to blur it out and make it abstract, it would be a very engaging composition. Plus the color red makes for a good homonym pun on the title of your blog. Gonna grab yer button now. And that's not a reference to choice B. 🙂

  7. I like the first one a lot! They are all really great though!

  8. b is certainly eye-catching, but I love A the most. C is lovely but I had to squint to make out what it was (and then I thought it was lovely!). Did you pick A in the end? I see it on your sidebar…

Car book! We always keep a non-fiction book in the car to read on the way to the grocery or if we get stuck in a traffic jam or if we find a park somewhere. Our current book is SUDDEN SEA: THE GREAT HURRICANE OF 1938 by R.A. Scotti. She writes surprisingly lyrically about a hellish event that took the inhabitants of the NE coast almost entirely by surprise, despite the awareness of some officials. Fascinating in the wake of Hurricanes Irma & Maria.

. . .
Gorgeous illustrations pop with foil pieces that highlight the words of this simple book, perfect for even the youngest reader. The sweetly lyrical text leads the reader from one - a tree - to many - the forest - and beyond, with each turn of the page showing more and more complex scenes through fall, winter, spring, summer, country, city, morning, and night, until we reach the end where the whole world is shining. I immediately wanted to read it again. For all ages, but especially 1-3-year-olds.

Does not disappoint! Another solid read in the In Death series by JD Robb. I've been reading this series since 2013, since before she came out as Nora Roberts, and I keep expecting the next book and then the next book and then the next book to dip in terms of quality of style and content and originality, but it just doesn't (thank goodness!). In #46, Dark in Death, JD ROBB almost makes a play on her own life in ways, as Eve is after a murderer who finds inspiration in a specific author's murder mysteries. Robb literally pays homage to the master of the meta, Hitchcock, with mentions of Psycho and Dial M for Murder, and I'm pretty sure the author she describes is modeled after Robb herself (physically). The plot is pretty tight and focused, but we still get glimpses of Peabody & McNab; Leonardo, Mavis, & Bella; Somerset is still off on holiday; and there is just a peek at the growing romantic interest in Nadine's life, as well as a preview of Nadine's next best-seller based on Eve's police work. I'm looking forward to a future book of Robb's that I'm sure will go into further detail either about Nadine's upcoming Oscar nomination for the first book/movie or the publication and what I'm sure will be subsequent movie of the second book. Enjoy!
