Show Me 5 Saturday Meme

That's a Novel Idea has started a new MEME called Show Me Five Saturday. This meme will give each blogger an opportunity to give a brief description of a book they have read or reviewed during the week.It will work like this: Each Saturday You will post the answer to these questions. The number indicates the number of answers you will provide.

1. Book you read and/or reviewed this week

2. Words that describe the book

3. Settings where it took place or characters you met

4. Things you liked and/or disliked about it

5. Stars or less for your rating?

Here's mine:

1. Book read: The Confidential Life of Eugenia Cooper by Kathleen Y'Barbo

2. adventurous, romance

3. New York, Denver, Eugenia Cooper (main character with a lot of spunk and who dreams of having a Wild West adventure before she settles down)

4. fun characters (peripheral not just main were great), historical setting (1880 mines in Colorado), surprising romance, penny dreadful installments at top of chapter of Mae Winslow's wild west adventures.

5. 4 stars

  1. Nice idea. After reading the questions i realized that amount to a book review for me. I never tell much about a story, I like it to be a surprise. I may try this. Sounds like you found a good one with the Eugenia Cooper story. I may try doing this feature.

  2. I like this meme. I think I will do it!
    I have an award for you here

  3. This is a fun one! I bet it will be very popular. Love your answers!

  4. I like this!! Plus I loved your review of this one earlier in the week.

  5. I like this meme, too! Thanks for sharing.
