So, I bought a print book while deep in the throes of the flu. It arrived and has been sitting out in view (so I won’t forget to read it) waiting patiently for me to remember not to forget to read it.
Books are like that. Patient and persistent. Print books have to be REALLY patient with me, because I’ve gone almost all digital—except when the price of the print book is more attractive than the digital price. And then I’m like, wow, I’d forgotten how heavy print books are (though I have to say, this is a very light print book. Now if it could just hold itself open like my digital books…)
I’d been reading something about paranormal romances somewhere or other and I thought to myself, “I don’t read paranormal.” And right then I walked past the patiently waiting book.
THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR was definitely a paranormal romance. Oops.
Do you find yourself doing that? Thinking you DO NOT LIKE this or that genre and realize you either recently bought something that could be that genre or worse, you’re reading that genre and didn’t realize it?
Other things I didn’t know about THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR. The author, RA Dick was a woman and she wrote two other novels, THE DEVIL AND MRS DEVINE and SHE WALKED TO THE WEDDING. Now I’m going to have to go look them up, even though I’ve only read a few pages of MRS. MUIR. (Hey, I had to stop and write this blog post!).
And I’m also fighting an urge to hunt down the movie.
My main quibble with ghost romances is that someone has to die for the couple to be together. Are there ghost romances where the dead person comes back to life?
And that’s about all I’ve got because I either need to read or hunt down a movie…
You know comments are entered into my monthly drawing for an AnaBanana gift basket ($25 value) and besides, I always want to know what you’re thinking about the Burning Question of the Blog Post (in this case there appears to be several). I announce a winner the first blog post of the new month.
P.S. I have one novel that has a ghost in it. And yes, there’s romance. Oops again.
You’ll have to read it to find out if the ghost gets her man…
