Comment: Thank you for your message with the book review, Loida! I'm glad you were able to find a book by an author who shares your initials. :-) I'm just sorry that you didn't love it. :-( But I too don't read much "chick lit," either. I need something paranormal in a book to really enjoy it, most of the time. Thank you for sharing!
Response: You're welcome, thanks for rating. My hubby says that somebody has to be murdered in a book or there has to be a monster for me to read it, LOL!
Comment: Thank you so much for doing private swap. And thank you for sharing your read with me.
Response: You're welcome, thanks for the heart:)

Comment: I've had some strange things happen to messages, ratings, etc here too so it may not have been that your brain is fried but congratulations! Thank you for the review - I don't normally read non-fiction either but sometimes one comes along that you just have to check out. The Blindsided and In Cold Blood were ones that I had to see what all the fuss was about 😀 I'll see you in the next swap!
Response: I know what you mean, I had heard about In Cold Blood, never saw the movie and wondered what the big deal was also, LOL! Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Wow, I've never read "In Cold Blood," but I remember when the actual event happened! Thanks for the great review. I've read other things by Capote, in particular the lovely "A Christmas Memory" and his other Christmas stories. They were all good, so maybe I'll delve into "Blood" one of these days.
Response: Thanks for the heart!
