This weeks question:
I actually like the titles for the Hollows series by Kim Harrison. They all have a Clint Eastwood movies theme. "Dead Witch Walking" "The Good, The Bad and the Undead" "Every Which Way But Dead" etc...
The reason for the titles ... from the author:
Why the Clint titles? There is a reason. I've always liked the characters that Clint Eastwood has played, especially the westerns where the guy comes in off the plain, able to solve the town's problems with a bully, but not all that eager to, but after some persuasion, he does. Not only does he take care of business, but he does it in a just, not necessarily legal way. I sort of see Rachel like that, if Clint had a pixy instead of a gun, and a convertible instead of a horse. Okay, maybe they aren't that much alike, but the feeling is there. But a more bland aspect is that it was a marketing decision to help make the books more recognizable.

The question of the week is:
Q. How has your reading habits changed since you were a teen? or If you are still a teen what new genres are you in love with currently?
Get this! I didn't read as a teen. I was one of those kids who thought I was too cool for school. It wasn't until a few years ago that I started reading again. I'm 22 now, which puts me in an odd spot. Naturally, Twilight sparked an interest, but it was actually Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy that got me going to the libraries and bookstores. Since then, I've notice a slighty (okay, maybe not so slightly) smuttier preference in books. Hey, I have a pulse. Sue me.
