K Day

K. Ready for today's K titles? I won't Keep you in suspense...

KICK ME - MG. Alternate universe where nerds are the cool rulers of the school picking on the beautiful people.

KANDY'S LAW - YA. Kandace Murphy maximizes on her bad luck.

KILL THE LIGHTS - Thriller. Blind Kearnin Arnold and his dog Quincy solve a mystery and get the girl.


WVDs of the Day:

Kuledn - race of people able to live and adapt in any setting

kesso - a beautiful, soul-defining kiss


One last bite of Special K.
My maiden name is Kibler. In 7th grade, our math teacher gave us all nicknames related to our last names. Instead of a cute one, like Elf for the Keebler elves, this old goof dubbed me Biscuit! He said it was because Kibler reminded him of cobbler (and his aide was already Elf). I guess Biscuit was better than Shoe. And definitely better than Bits! I hated that dog food commercial!

*Making up Titles & WVDs (word verification definitions) keeps me on my toes!

Kick Me sounds like a thought-provoking book.
And Kuledn - able to adapt in any setting - love that! Shakespeare, and Tolkein would be evnious of your WVD definitions!

Kesso as a kiss...LOL! In Filipino, keso is cheese. So that one had me laughing. :DDDD

Speaking of your Kick Me title. I vaguely remember a movie, probably back in the 70's, about a girl who was a nerd in school and treated horribly. As an adult she goes in and gets plastic surgery and the whole works to make her beautiful and then finds her old classmates and gives them heck...or something like that. It was a long time ago!

I absolutely love the WVDs! What an awesome concept. May I steal it? ;)

When my son was pledge master of his fraternity, he gave all the pledges girls' names. Unfortunately, the name Mary Poppins stuck, and everyone still calls this young man by that wonderful name.

Kick Me sounds like my kind of book.
