March is here! Can it be that spring isn't far behind? I'm going to say yes and break those flip flips out. Well, soon anyway. Oh, I'm being interviewed by Asti at The Bookish Games on Tuesday March 5th regarding my experience in the Games, so check that out if you're so inclined. You can see Bookish Games stuff at @bookishgames. And this week Shannon from It Starts at Midnight was interviewed- and since she's the one who got me hornswoggled into that Game I'm gonna return the favor and plug her interview here. Go read!

Some fun stuff this week. I was wasting time exploring Pinterest this week and found name generators. So yes you can have fun too. Apparently in Star Wars I'm a Jawa scavenger, but my favorite has to be the vampire stripper name generator. Yes you can find your very own vampire stripper name. You're welcome!    

This week I posted reviews for Polaris Rising and Damocles: An Impossible Ransom, and I also shared my favorite Superhero Costume Fails. Next week I've got a two part post looking at Best Music Art. And I'll be reviewing The Extinction Trials book three.

  3. I think your declaration of spring summoned all the snow I am experiencing right now. I never thought I would avoid the white stuff altogether, but the timing really sucks. --sigh-- Seriously, I had to step away from Pinterest, because that is the one social media blackhole I fall into. Once I start pinning, I can't stop.

    1. Oh no! And yeah Pin is a HUGE rabbit hole- way worse than tweeting or Instagramming for me, there's so much there...

  4. I am enjoying these days of winter while we have them because I know as soon as spring arrives the dreadful summer will just be a few short weeks behind. Spring never lasts long around my parts and summer heat and humidity reigns supreme. Though I will say I could do without all the snow!

    Nice new reads! Totally new to me ones. Hope you enjoy them!

    My STS will be up tomorrow, so stop by then if you can!

    Have a GREAT day!

    1. Same here. Love spring but we get a very short season and then the heat arrives! Gotta agree with you!

      Happy weekend!

  5. I love all the name generators. Such beautiful photos. I think Farvel is my favorite. It reminds me of my short time in Iceland.

  6. I'm Crimson Nympho, lol. Who knew there were vampire strippers?๐Ÿ˜‰

  7. Die Like A Dog has such a great title and cover. It's 80s and muggy here, Greg. Going barefoot! Bikini Atoll cracked me up. That would be my luck!

  9. Bwahahahaha as much as you love quizzes (and me too) I enjoyed these names generators! I got "Candy Thighs" (what a program!) and Fevered Minx (a little bit slutty don't you think?). Have a great week Greg! My post will only come tomorrow LOL Sophie @bewareofthereader

  10. Looking forward to the interview, I have to remember the next time you do it to watch the games. They really do sound like a lot of fun.

    The Comic cover looks like something that should be on SyFy lol

    Have a great week, Greg! Happy Reading!

  11. Polaris Rising is in my wish list. It looks pretty good. I'm not at all looking forward to the coming summer heat. I just know 117F is right around the corner.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Pinterest is such a timesuck! I love the first artwork, Jurassic Aftermath. Of course I love anything with dinosaurs! Always love your art posts!

  13. Interesting games and images. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog. Have a great week!

    Probably if a reader doesn't know what to say on the topic at least you could still get a cooment with the "what's your ---- name" memes

  15. Ahhh my vampire stripper name is Blazing Demon. I like it, haha. Yay flip flops! I never put mine away though :-P Why are these name generators so much fun?? Dive diner, clever! I'd never eat there though. Being underwater like that would freak me out.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I like it! And ah I'm jealous... I want to wear flip flops year round!!

  16. Oh wow, some amazing art picks this week! Gas giant and Catch of the Day are vying for my favorite - the latter is just so surreal that it's awesome. And I love the Bikini Atoll cover, I gotta wonder why no one thought of that concept for a movie poster!

  23. Two Can Keep a Secret is on my list. I'm interested to see if you enjoyed Polaris. Love the Druid Forest pic.

    You're ready to break out the flip flops? It's funny that when we're in the 50s or 60s here in Southern California people are wearing boots and coats. Although, I will say that's mostly the female population. My husband is usually in shorts and flip flops if it's above 60. So maybe it's a male thing? Lol.

    Apparently, I'm a scavenger, too, but I'm a Hutt. Regular stripper name: Sugar Horn, Vamp stripper: Obsessed Paramour, lol. These are fun. :)

    1. I did like Polaris. Definitely a good read.

      I think it may be! I do the same... I'll totally have flip flops on if it's 60's or even 50's (I'm stubborn that way). :)

      I love those too! Obsesses Paramour... that's a good one!

  24. I'll be looking forward to your Extinction Trials review. I love those name generators. They're so much fun! I'm Twi'lek Smuggler, Fantasia Whip, and Sadistic Queen. LOL!

    1. Awesome- I love when places evoke a fantasy feel, or a fantasy image calls to mind a place in RL.

  26. Thanks for finding these. They are so much fun. Hutt Scavenger, Kitty Cream and Crimson Paramour. Awesome hehe love my stripper name. Congrats on the Interview and exciting.

  27. Enjoy your books and have a nice week. I love wasting time on Pinterest!
    My Star Wars name is Milda and I'm a bounty hunter apparently. Sounds good to me.

  28. Oh, the fun of name generators - when I was in high school we had a period when we went crazy for all sort of name generators.

    Enjoy your new books!

  29. Spring just can't come fast enough if you ask me. I'm just over wearing all these warm clothes. Ewok Smuggler wishes you a great week! LOL!
    Happy reading!

  30. HI Gregg,

    Oh I got a Sullustan Jedi! LOL

    I too loved the Dive Diner, that would be great if it was real. :)

    Hope you're enjoying your weekend, what's left of it - and surviving Freya's storm.

    Here's my Saturday "Stacking The Shelves" Post and my Sunday Wrap up post lol!

    1. You're also a fair bit further south than Greg is! :-)

  34. Just your friendly neighborhood Wookie smuggler here. Is a Wookie smuggler a Wookie who smuggles things (rather like Chewbaca), or a smuggler who traffics in Wookies?

    Oh, and 'Farvel' is beautiful, if cold. I suppose that's appropriate for this weekend!


    ReplyDelete
  35. My Jedi name is too complicated for me now. But my vampire stripper name would be Jaded Queen. Hmmm...that sounds like a good name for me all of the time :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Your Polaris Rising review has me eager to read that one. I hope you have a great weekend, Greg. My daughter finally managed to get her school report done, and we practiced her presentation. Now to think about dinner! Have a wonderful week!

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is so much fun, Greg! Polaris Rising sounds terrific! Happy week ahead with some great books!

  38. Love the Pulp Fiction cover. What a different world it was when those covers were published. I'd like to invite you to join me in a reading challenge I am sponsoring to read books we own. Check out the details: 'My Own Books' Reading Challenge

  39. Haha, how much time can be spent on places like Pinterest etc. It is so interesting though. Well while we have little rain there is a touch of Autumn coolness - so perhaps your Spring is not too far away.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Where do you get all this amazing artwork? It's really inspiring. Incidentally, I'm a Twi'lek scavenger, which is pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  41. You can call me the Sugar Sizzle.It has a nice ring to it right? I love the Pinterest and its weird finds. Have a great week ahead, Greg.

  42. Name generators are always so much fun. My favorite images this week are the Viking ship and the Druid forest. The book games sound fun.

  43. Name generators are always fun but a vampire stripper name might just take the cake. (I'm Jaded Blood Slave, btw. LOL) But hey, my Star Wars name is kinda cool. I'm a Wookiee Jedi (is that even a thing?) called Atkya. Not bad. :) Looking forward to the music art this week!

  44. Amazing post !! Nice book Clockwork Angel Novel by Cassandra Clare Pdf. I will Bookmark this website. and recommend for everyone to read Top Novel books

    ReplyDelete
  45. Lol!! I love Pinterest!!! And I love name generators. Lol. I got Montana Horn, Lusty Vixen (er yikes!), and I am a Genosian so not super cute like a Jawa or Ewok or Wookie but at least I'm a Jedi! LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Vampire stripper name? Okay. Our weather still has us pretty deep in winter. Spring looks a long way out yet in Minnesota. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

    ReplyDelete
  47. That Name Generator sure sounds like fun, Gorgeous Greg!(lol) Hugs...RO

    ReplyDelete
  48. I am apparently Star Heat, Chrez Ithorian Sith and Lusty Demon (I cheated on this one because my mom didn't give me a middle name). Our weather is as usual a bit out of wack. We had snow the week of the 22nd and this past week we were in the high 70s almost 80s. But I'm ready for Spring, I just want to wear shorts again.

    Have an awesome week!

  49. Name generators are always fun. I didn't know I wanted a vampire stripper name until you said there was a name generator for it, now I will not be happy until I know what mine is.

  50. The Extinction Trials books are such fun!

  51. I also LOVED Polaris Rising. My vampire one is Lusty Harlot; that sounds promising. Have a great week! Anne - Books of My Heart

  52. Ha ha I always like those name generators! My Star Wars one is Johst the Gungan Smuggler (not a clue who that would be as I don't watch Star Wars much...lol) That Comic cover cracks me up!

  57. Wowww sharing my interview AND a Jennifer Goines GIF, it's like Christmas! And I have no regrets about destroying your life with Bookish Games ๐Ÿ˜‚ I am excited to read your interview! Did you do the superlatives? They weren't a thing when I submitted mine, and there just wasn't enough time for me to come up with anything good to answer hah.

    Oooh Sky So Heavy! That was a good one. And I really want to read Damocles and Polaris Rising. Love the pictures as always, too! My name generators were sadly unfunny, but I guess they can't all be winning combinations!!

  58. I can not wait for winter to be over. I was over it before it began. I love the dive diner picture. =)
    You always have some wonderful pictures. Have a wonderful week.
