This week's question: If you could have characters from a book meet and form an epic storyline with characters from a TV series, which characters would you choose and why?
Answer: I had to think about this a long time; it stumped me! Then finally I thought of something, and I'm taking a risk of sounding completely redundant. For book characters I'm choosing those from the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series and pairing them up with the characters from True Blood. This might be kind of considered cheating, since True Blood is also a series of books (The Southern Vampire series), but let's just go with it. How great would that be? Poor Sookie, Anita would yank Eric, Bill, and Alcide right out from under your nose. I'm positive she wouldn't stand a chance. Plus, then there would be even MORE hot guys to obsess over. It's a win-win situation - well, maybe not for Sookie, but that's ok because she annoys me on the show. Here's a little secret (and I'm probably going to be shunned for saying this), but I'm not a huge fan of True Blood. I think the first season was fairly good, but in my opinion it's gone downhill from there, and some of the acting leaves a bad taste in my mouth. But hey, it's doing really well in the ratings, so I'm probably wrong.

This week's question: What is your favorite spooky book (i.e. mystery/suspense, thriller, ghost story, etc.)
Answer: I think the books that creep me out the most (or I guess I should say, had the most violent, gruesome murders) is Karin Slaughter's Grant County series. Maybe they just affected me more because I connect with those characters on a higher level than with most other books, but they're always really intense. I also have to agree with our host, Heartsick by Chelsea Cain is an extremely creepy book, especially in regards to the murderer's torture techniques. I've read the other books in the series too and they are also good, but not as creepy as the first in my opinion.
