Tea Time & New Blog Friends

The Weekend is Upon Us!

This has been a most wonderful first week of blogging.
Now its time for some delectable tea.  

Please do take a seat for a moment and relax.
I'm taking a break from brain splitting science.
It is such hard work  being fashionable and evil!

Do you take sugar or cream for your tea?

The Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy-for-Books and Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View

A Question?  Sure you may ask, I have a few minutes.

"How do you spread the word about your blog?

I am Very New to the blog world.  I started this week!
It has been so much fun so far!
Really I have just been hopping around to blogs I find interesting.
I hit blogs that they have on their side bars 

Well, now I'm doing the Blog Hop and Follow Friday!

Thanks for such a great networking opportunity!
I am pleased to have meet so many new people!

What Books Have You Bitten?
I only have one book review :( 
Fear not it is only the first of many!

Check out my FIRST review!
(Yes, it truly is exciting!)


I love so many books!
 I would say a few books that have bitten me would be the 
Dark Hunter Series by Sherrilyn Kenyon 
Anita Blake Series by Laurell Hamilton

Stop by again, it is delightful chatting.
(I will stop by your blog as well and bring by some Steampunkery while I'm at it!)
I do enjoy a great discussion on books!
