Random Friday: New Friends, Phallic Fridays, Giveaways and Dragon Llama

Happy Friday!!!!

We had a great Crossroads discussion here at Fiction Vixen on Wednesday. If you’ve read Crossroads by Moira Rogers and want to check it out please feel free to join in. Moira Rogers is giving away a Kindle to discussion participants. There is still time to enter.


Fiction Vixen will be two years old soon. We’ll be celebrating with a cool giveaway at the end of the month. I’m very excited and I’m just wrapping up the final details. During my two years of book blogging, I’ve made some great friends. Recently I started talking to some bloggers that are new-to-me and I thought I’d share their blog links today so you can stop by and say HAI.

Check out Obscured Vixen. (no relation :)) She has a couple of great J.R. Ward signing posts HERE and HERE.

You should also check out Kelley from Books-n-Kisses. She’s awesome! She has a great blog with lots going on. I know she’d like to hear from you.

And finally check out Heather at The Book Reading Gals. We chat on twitter, and we’ve been talking about WordPress stuff etc. I really like her blog and think you will too.

Be sure to tell them Sophia at Fiction Vixen sent you!!


Someone last week said her boss always seems to walk by when she is looking at something phallic on my Random Friday posts. And I’ve got to admit, it does get a little wienery here on Fridays sometimes. Not on purpose, I swear. Pinky swear. I should just change the name of the post to Phallic Friday huh?

Well it just so happens I have a few dong-like things to share again this week. What?

The Book Vixen shared this with me this week. (She’s not weird but she is a good source for weird stuff)

No wiener

Yes, because I could totally see how some dude would get confused and think that this would be a good place to stick his penis. o_0 But then, guys do stick their penises in odd places sometimes.

Then on Regretsy…

Penis Shakers

I spotted these Salt and Pepper penises err, I mean shakers.

What I’m reading:

I just finished Eternal Hearts by Jennifer Turner. It was different from the first book in the series. I had a few problems with it but it was an ok read. I’ll have a review up soon.

I also just finished The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf  by Molly Harper. I was caught off guard at first with this one because I assumed it would be told from the perspective of the heroine from the last book. (No, I did not read the blurb, I just jumped right in) I kept getting confused but once I got my head around that it was told from Maggie’s perspective I was on board.

I am currently reading Hot as Hades by Alisha Rai. I just started it and already there has been some nipple action. That’s promising. :)

I’m going to start Divergent by Veronica Roth very soon. After reading Enclave by Ann Aguirre and The Hunger Games Trilogy, I’ve decided I need to check out more dystopian YA. Very excited to dig in.


The Weekly Llama.

We haven’t had a good llama pick in a while. Not sure why I call it the weekly llama actually. :)


Jen (@RedHotBooks) shared this dragon llama with me. Verra cute.

That’s it for me folks!

    Applause for The Book Vixen. That sign is fantastic!! And even with all the weiner-goodness in this post, i was able to view it undetected, since the boss-man is taking a late lunch!

    Congratulations on your blog-o-versary.

    I’ll keep an eye out for your thoughts on Divergent. Everyone has said it’s great, but I haven’t read it. I’m not big on YA, but I do read one every once in a while.

      I thought EH was not as edgy and dark as the first one. Yeah there was some dark stuff but this book wasn’t what I expected. And yes, you are right, there was a huge cast in this one. I couldn’t’ keep track.

    Wow, the “shakers” are just too funny. What’s more funny is the description under the pic, they are so oblivious to what they are. Cute milk glass shakers? Really?! Hope you are liking Divergent so far. Haven’t started it yet and I heard Eternal Hearts was good, can’t wait for your review though to know your thoughts. Great post, thanks hon.

    I made it into a Random Friday post!!! 😀

    I’m surprised you don’t find me weird (with all that craziness I send you).

    I really hope you enjoy Divergent. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts on it.
