Our Answers

This week we will hear answers from our Mocha Girl Read bloggers.  These Mocha Girls have blogs centered around our favorite thing, books and the love of reading.

Mocha Girl Amber (blogger at Du Livre)

When I was a child I used to love reading in the car! But nowadays, I just can’t do it. I’ve tried recently in half an hour car ride, I read 2 pages. I just feel guilty leaving my poor husband to drive in silence!

Mocha Girl Vivian (blogger at The Book Diva)

As a child, I wasn’t able to read in a car due to extreme motion sickness, but fortunately, as an adult, I’m quite comfortable reading in the car. Now the problem is simply talking others into driving so I can read…

Mocha Girl Shannon (blogger Reading Has Purpose)

I’m not even sure how to answer the question! If the question is does reading cause motion sickness, the answer is no. But I don’t read in the car since I’m usually driving. When I’m not driving I think it’s kind of rude to read as a passenger.

What about you?  Are you able to read in a car?

Our Answers

Mocha Girl Alysia

My significant other was not a book reader but a newspaper read when we started dating.  Now 2 years later I am happy to day he reads the books I bring him back from BEA (Book Expo America).  Last year he read a total of 5 books and I think he has completed one already this month.

Mocha Girl Classy

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! My husband does not like to read, but he does honor and respect my “need” to buy, read and listen to books. He has bought books as presents and even bought my wonderful Kindle.

Mocha Girl Juawanna 

To answer the question would be no. My spouse does like to read a short article on a person or sport team from time to time, but overall he is not a reader and does not share my passion for reading.

Why I Love Wednesday

Reflections of a Bookaholic

Mocha Girl Alexis from Reflections of a Bookaholic started a Wednesday Meme called Why I Love Wednesday.  What is a Meme you ask?  According to wikipedia…The term “Internet meme” refers to a catchphrase or concept that spreads rapidly from person to person via the Internet, largely through Internet-based email, blogs, forums, Imageboards, social networking sites and instant messaging.  Basically, a topic from the meme host (Alexis) is posted on participating blogs with blog authors answering it on their site (here).

The topic this Wednesday is… Humorous Reads

I just finished a great audiobook called Beauty Queens by Libba Bray!  It was a hilarious satire on pageants and pageant women.  I laughed so much in the car driving to work I know people thought I was insane.

What are some of your favorite books that made you laugh out loud?  Spit out your tea while reading?  hheeeheeehhee!!

Why I Love Wednesdays…Child Characters

The topic this Wednesday is…Child Characters

This is a great one this week.  There are so many child characters in books that I love.  Our book of the month The Darkest Child was full of kids.  Rozelle never stopped making them.  But none of them compared to my favorite Child Character…Rue.

From Thehungergames.wikia.com

Rue had a sweet nature, loving those close to her, and hates to see them hurt. Her greatest joy in life was music, and she loved singing with the mockingjays at home. The mockingjays back home liked her and are used to her because she was the one who sang a four-note melody that signals the end of a work day out in the field. She is excited at the prospect of adventure – one character trait that she does not share with Katniss’s sister, Primrose.

She is also very observant of her surroundings, noticing every piece of information she saw when spying on the Careers.

Rue fully understood the inhumane and brutal nature of the Hunger Games, and refused to sink down to the level of the others. Instead of attacking at the first sight of other tributes, she spied and gathered information that helped her and Katniss form a plan on how to wipe out the Careers. Katniss supplied a bit of emotional support to Rue, giving her the hope that maybe it wouldn’t be all bad.

It is also her personality that set her apart from Prim. Prim could not stand to see anything get hurt and would have definitely not been able to harm anyone in the Games, but Rue was ready and willing to go forth with the plan, seeing it as an adventure (Prim sees adventures as an ordeal). Teaching Prim to hunt was a disaster, with her crying over the shot animal and wondering if there was time to rush it home and nurse it back to health, whereas Rue was prepared to do whatever to survive. Rue was also very bird-like, the way she was able to move swiftly through the trees without being noticed.

Who is your favorite child character?

Why I Love Wednesdays…First Meet Scene

The topic this Wednesday is…First Meet Scene

This one was hard for me to pick out.  But the one that keeps coming to mind is when Katniss meets Peeta for the first time in The Hunger Games.  I know I am still talking about that book.  But I thought Susanne Collins wrote a great scene for Katniss and Peeta to meet in.  If you have seen the movie and not read the book you might have missed it.  It was only a few seconds long.  In the book Peeta saves Katniss from starving by tossing her a loaf of burnt nut and raisin bread.

What is the best first meet scene you have ever read in a book?  What about the part when two characters meet for the first time?  Any stand out for you?
