It's the time of the year for tulips, Easter eggs, and cute bunnies. So how about we read some books with flowers, spring chickens, and life on the farm? ....What do you mean 'no'? Aren't you in the mood for the adorably cute? You sure? ... :evil: Okay, then sing with me to the tune of April Showers from the Disney movie, Bambi....Drip, Drip, Drop, Little April Showers....Drip, Drip, Drop, lots of bloody splatters :twisted: ....now let's Spring Into Action!

A) Read a book with a king
B) Read a book with a slayer
C) Read a book with an A.I.
D) Read a book with a P.I.

A.I.= Artificial Intelligence. May be of technical origin (ex. robot, android, etc.) or of magical origin (ex. Pinocchio, beast made intelligent/human, etc.)

PI, as in Private Investigator?
AI, yuck! I hate scifi-ish stuff. Magical origin? are we talking something like a dog that's turned into a human by a magic, not a shifter, right?
It's Monday and I'm easily confused on the best of days, so I just wanted to make sure I understand.

Eilian: So you're saying you regularly dry hump the air in the corner of your house and bring yourself to an orgasm in your pants?
Steffan: Good point.
Eilian: Never, ever do that in front of me again.

PI = Private investigator
As for the AI, I've got to come up with 48 categories this year and I'm trying to give you occasional stuff that's a real challenge to find. I know not everyone does futuristic romance so that's why it can be magical too. A plant or animal that is turned human or just given an intellect. It would have to be a transformation or endowment of intellect. The dog for example, could be made to have human intelligence without being turned into a human. A shifter, demon, or angel wouldn't count as they are already intelligent. *rethinks the flower idea...hmmm, maybe VKD would rather read ....and we could have a group night to watch Bambi, snicker :evil: *

Believe it or not I actually read a book several weeks ago that was about cyborg type things. I didn't like it, but I read it.

I hope you don't think I was wanting something else. You're free to pick whatever you want for the categories.

Goal for April: Find a book about a witch PI who is sent to space to seduce the King of planet Slayer, the metal flower planet. While on this planet she sneezes and several of the flowers suddenly pick up on her seduction techniques and begin "inserting their stems" into random people for sexual enjoyment. The King captures the witch PI and sends all his slayers for training to kill the sexed up flower.

hmmm....what if the witch was a flower fairy instead? and the king was formerly a billy goat that had been turned human by the lusty spade people that wanted to use his semen as fertilizer?

Well for now I get 1 point for King. I'm reading The Final Prophecy series by Jessica Andersen and the series has a Nightkeeper King to help prevent the end of the world in 2012. I will also soon be getting a 2nd point for LU due to the slayers. Maybe a 3rd for a PI as the King works with a PI to locate Nightkeepers and Mayan artifacts but I'm not sure on the AI part though. I guess we will see.

some months are like that TR and that's ok. It makes me really appreciate when I do have time to read. I was trailing way behind in this among you fast readers so it was nice to play catch up. Hope May is less hectic for you :)
