Woot! Here we are for week two of our Some Girls Bite read-along! Hope you enjoyed last week's answers. Tina from Tina's Book Reviews is hosting this week with the questions for Chapters 5-8.
Speaking of katana swords, here's a lil snippet of a Merit inspired conversation with my hubs from last week. Enjoy:
Me: So I think I want to take a self-defense or beginner's martial arts class
Le Hubs: like Roseanne? Poke eyes and knee some guy in the groin? But seriously, why?
Me: because I've wanted always to (kick ass, that is). And you won't let me have a katana so this is the next best thing.
Le Hubs: fine with me
Me: If I'm good at it, can I get a sword?
Le Hubs: no swords
Me: you have a gun, and we have a boning knife. I should have a sword to smite mine enemies with
Le Hubs: I don't have a gun...I have a Kentucky rifle that takes about 20 minutes to load and is 50 pounds...and it's not even in the house
Me: So what's your dysfunctional gun have to do with my kick-ass sword? If I am going to be a proper samurai, I need a sword. You can't argue with logic, babe. It just is.
I rest my case.
That wasn't love, that was totally lust! And Cather, wow! At least Mallory uses her lust judiciously, hehe. I think it became love, though. It was a convenient storyline, but it was a hilarious one, so I didn't mind. Like Mallory, I get the allure of a guy who won't put up with bullshit (hence, my husband). Plus, um, Cather. . . yeah, boyfriend needs his own series, don't you think?
Honestly, I had no idea as I read, and I actually thought the connections between it all turned out to be one of the weaker points of the plot. Did I think someone was out to get Merit? Seemed that way to me. I really have never bought that her being attacked was a random act of violence, so we shall see!
