Please pardon the dust around the blog as I work on getting the new theme completely installed. It is a wonderful theme and I am very excited to be taking this next step forward in my book blogging adventure! It is a little scary leaving behind Fire & Ice, but I feel like the same was right.

So welcome, have a look around and mind any dusty areas.

Musing Monday asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer each week…

I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…

I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…

Random question: Do you visit your local library regularly? If so, what’s your earliest memory of visiting a library?

I used to go all the time, alas these days I do not go to the library as often as I used to. I have a lot of early memories at the library in Roseville, MN. My Mom always encouraged us to read so we had a weekly run for as long as I can remember. In the summer we usually made a fast night trip and one big weekend trip. I remember getting stacks and stacks of books and playing Oregon trail on the library computer. I always did a little jig when I could have two time slots on the computer to play. Silly I know, but I remember that. Then I would leave with a whole sack of books and I would read them all.

” It was near the end of Stefan Rossetti’s fourteenth year that his father, the commander of The Viking long ship Sja and its fleet of seven ships, at least agreed to take him aboard. Standing on the beautiful Scandinavian shore, his smile was wide and he was certain no happier laddie ever was or ever would be again. ” 1% The Viking by Marti Talbott

Random question: If you were a character, which author would you trust with your life (to write your story)?

This is a tough one, honestly I can’t narrow it down to just one. I think I would say either Lauren Willig, J.R Ward, or Stephanie Laurens. Either way I will end up with a nice hunk who has a firm loyalty to his lady. In a Lauren Willig I could also have fun being my own spy type lady. While J.R Ward, well her world is a good deal more dangerous then my other two choices, but come on The Black Dagger Brotherhood, they are worth the danger.

Sometimes you have to shake things up. I have been thinking about shaking the book blog up for the last year or so, I never took the plunge last year, but 2017 is going to be the year for change. It is hard to think that I have run this blog since the end of 2007. I started out over at blogspot with a free blog and was happy with it. Over the years, however, I have changed to my own domain and different theme’s and of course migrated to WordPress. The one thing that has always nagged at me since I got my domain name is that I was never able to get the exact name of the blog. Icewarmth.com has always been a play on the actual title of the blog, Fire & Ice. I thought if I waited long enough I would eventually get something close, alas, that just never seems to have materialized.

Now, as I sit here looking back over the year I think about all the things that have happened in 2016. All the changes that have happened in the world and in my life. The conclusion? It is time for a change up in the blog line up. The content itself will remain the same and I may be taking on the job of hosting some meme’s that I have been posting on this blog almost since the beginning, the current host is making changes in her blog life too. However, the domain name, the blog name and the theme will be changed. I will still keep icewarmth.com for the next year and just have it redirect so everyone can get used to the change, but the change is coming. The new book blog will be called….

The Purple Booker

A little silly, I know, but it suits me as many who know me will know. A fun play on Hooker yes (because I crochet, what were you thinking?) and a little play with one of my favorite book series by Lauren Willig. I am nervous and excited at the same time about the change. I hope that my lovely readers will be happy with the changes when they happen as well. I still have a lot of things to get in order before the change, but just couldn’t wait to make the announcement.

A rip-roaring, high-octane, Texas-sized thriller, featuring two friends, one vixen, a crew of washed-up radicals, loads of money, and bloody mayhem.Hap Collins and Leonard Pine are best friends, yet they couldn’t be more different. Hap is an east Texas white-boy with a weakness for Texas women. Leonard is a gay, black Vietnam vet. Together, they steer up more commotion than a fire storm. But that’s just the way they like it. So when an ex-flame of Hap’s returns promising a huge score. Hap lets Leonard in on the scam, and that’s when things get interesting. Chockfull of action and laughs, Savage Season is the masterpiece of dark suspense that introduced Hap and Leonard to the thriller scene. It hasn’t been the same since.

I became interested in Hap & Leonoard when James Purefoy signed on for the new TV series. I admit this is not usually a book I would have picked up on my own, without something to prompt me. With that said I am so glad that I did pick it up because this is a fantastic book! It is very fast paced and the things that Hap and Leonard get into, oh you can’t help but think of it as a comedy of errors sometimes. They may be best friends but they bicker like an old married couple and they really are polar opposites. I am looking forward to going forward with the series both book and TV. The book really is fantastic and gave me a lot of laughs. It filled in more details for me after watching the series, and I can appreciate that. Hap, oh all I can do with some of the things he does is shake my head his name seems to suit.

“You know, a woman is considered helpless without a man. At least, that’s what people say. Well, I was able to take care of myself and live the way I wanted. Why should I give all that up just to be with a man?” She shook her head again. “No, it’s not for me.”

Random Question: Are there any particular worlds in books in which you’d like to live?

Now this is a very curious question and my first instinct is to shout a resounding yes there are! When I take a moment to think about it, I still want to say yes, but with a little worry to it. No world is perfect and that holds the same for books. I also tend to read a lot of books set in history or our world with some differences. I know I am waffling back and forth here again. So I will say yes and I will also say which world. I would like to live in Harry Dresden’s world. It is enough like our world that I feel I would be comfortable and not out of place (it IS current, modern and our world) and then there is the plus of Wizards! Most of the world doesn’t know about them of course and there are some big bads, but overall yes I think it would be a great deal of fun. I mean there is Thomas and Bob and toot toot and of course Harry and mouse! Yes I think that would be a fun world to live in.
