Vampires may turn to dust when killed, but one thing remains behind--their fangs.

  1. OoOoO I'm reading a book with vampires too (Son of No One), but I'm not liking it as much as I'm expected to. Are you enjoying this one? :)

  2. Huh, I wonder why the fangs remain? The bones don't so why the teeth?

  3. Sounds interesting, especially since I've been to Bruges. I'd read this book just to revisit that delightful city.

    1. This is the 1st in a new series, but it also ties into her last series, the Ivy Granger books.

  7. I like the caricature type cover and am curious why the teeth are left behind. Trophies, perhaps?

  9. Vampires are perfect for October. Fangs being left behind? I'm seeing a character who likes to hold on to them as souvenirs.

  15. I never knew that about vampires. I will have to add it to my new knowledge bank about the, :) Sounds like a fun read for this month. I just made my "creepy" book display for the school library and kids come running for these types of books. Anne's Friday Quotes

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
