It's Wacky Wednesday!
It's also Ash Wednesday for those who follow it. That means it's the first full day of Lent - a time when some Christians, through prayer, penance and self-denial, and giving prepare themselves for the celebration of Jesus Christ's subsequent sacrifice for our souls and His resurrection on Easter Sunday. Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras, a day to indulge in preparation for 40 days of self-denial. Well, I give up so many things during the rest of the year because of diet restrictions and budget that I really don't have an indulgence to give up so I just add extra prayers. However, it did make me think about one indulgence that I have that I probably could give up for Lent but then again, I just got a chance to over-indulge in it just as Lent begins. Reading Romance Novels.
I have been chosen as one of the first Avon Addicts by Avon Romance. This means that I get to preview new books and review them ... am I in reading heaven or what? It's a stint that only last 6 months and begins now. I can't give up reading romance for Lent when I've just been bestowed such an honor, now can I?
One of the first eARCs Avon sent me is THE RANCHER AND THE ROCK STAR by Lizbeth Selvig ... I'll review this for you on Friday as it releases next Tuesday and I want you to have the full scoop on this author's debut novel. But don't you just love that title!!! THE RANCHER AND THE ROCK STAR!!
ROCK STAR!! And how about that cover? What was that about denial? I don't think so.
Can you imagine having a rock star show up at your door? Well, can you? Have you ever fantasized about a favorite rock star, movie star, celebrity of any kind, or allowed your imagination to take you off into a world where you actually meet your favorite Romance Novel hero? Come on, come clean, we've all fantasized about such things at some time in our life. Perhaps yours is Mr. Darcy?
Well, my fantasy has always been that Elvis Presley isn't really dead and that he shows up somewhere and I am there to meet him. I recognize him, of course, but don't tell him or anyone else that I knew who he is. I keep his secret, we become fast friends and eventually he falls as madly in love with me as I am with him. How 'bout that for romantic fantastical imagining?
So who's your Celebrity/Hero Crush ... who would you love to have ring your doorbell, sweep you off your feet and proclaim his love for you? Hee Hee!
Happy Reading and God Bless - hey, as part of my Lental sacrifice I give more unto others including extra prayers that are for all my friends.
And delicious covers! *wink*
