Trapped In a Restaurant Meme Game

It's a Mind Games Meme Game!

In case you live under a rock and have not heard ...

or have been reading my blog without paying any attention to what I have in the sidebar ...

Fellow book blogger and friend of mine, Carolyn Crane is days away from the release of her debut novel, Mind Games!

Carolyn created this fun meme game to celebrate her debut book release and if you play along, you could win a $100 gift card to the restaurant of your choice! All you need to do is answer the Meme Game questions and post them on your social media site like your blog, facebook, and so on. Check out the rules at Carolyn's blog here.

Meme Game Questions:

1. In MIND GAMES, heroine Justine Jones can’t figure out why tortured mastermind Sterling Packard never sets foot outside the Mongolian Delites restaurant. What if you were somehow trapped in a restaurant, what sort of restaurant would you prefer?

Asian fusion. The little place downtown is perfect. They serve delicious sushi, Chinese, Thai and Malaysian dishes.

2. What if you won the fancy $100 dinner to a restaurant of your choice, and you could dine with any character from any book, movie, or history. Who would you choose?

Lilith from Meljean Brook's Guardian Series.

3. Choose three characters to dine with for a lively dinner party (you can define lively however you want).

Lilith and Michael from Meljean Brook's Guardian series, and Raphael from Nalini Singh's Guild Hunter series.

Why? Considering their mutual 'divine' origins so to speak, and the powers they seemingly so nonchalantly wield, I'd love to hear what Michael and Raphael would talk about and Lilith would be so good at getting them to inevitably engage in some kind of one-upmanship. She'd also serve as my body guard. And we'd bring home a nice doggie bag for Sir Pup!

  1. Great restaurant choice Christine and sounds to me like you've picked some mighty interesting dinner companions. *g*


  2. This sounds like fun! And your answers were well thought out and interesting. *g*

  3. That would be one fascinating dinner with those companions. Me, I'd like to have dinner with Dmitri.... *grin*

    I can't wait to read this book!

  4. Hey! Thanks for playing, and I love your divine dinner party. That is a very inventive trio. I wonder what they would order!! OMG, look at my counter!!

    Have a great Saturday. I hope it's nice there and you can run.

  5. Great answers Christine! LOL I've never had Thai and Malaysian food, maybe I should try it?? Interesting character picks, always good to have a body guard though.

    Dottie :)

  6. Oh, eating with Lilith would probably be a riot :D However, I'm not sure it would be very lively with Michael and Raphael... they're both gloomy characters, no?

  7. Lea: Thanks! I was going more for interesting than lively, I suppose. LOL. Great review on MIND GAMES, by the way!

    Brandy: I *did* think through my answers quite carefully. I was looking to witness some interesting discourse between the 'angels' all the while causing mischief with Lilith.

    orannia: Dmitri, eh? Maybe you could find out more about that him that Ms. Singh hasn't revealed yet. Well, I haven't read Archangel's Kiss, so maybe I'm just ignorant. ;p

    Carolyn: You're so very welcome. This was a clever meme you came up with. You should see your counter today! IT'S ALL ZEROS!!! Congrats on your release day, my friend! : )

    Dottie: You should DEFINITELY try Thai and or Malaysian food. It's so good!

    nath: I did pick a gloomy bunch, didn't I? The funny thing is that I was going for a girls night out idea that included Mercy Thompson, Kate Daniels and Lily Bard and thought THEY were way to serious so I switched it up. Oy! LOL

  8. LOL, you'd have to referee the sword fights!! :D Although Mercy and Kate might get along very well :D

  9. nath, you don't know Lily Bard? She'd fit right in with Mercy and Kate, too. So would Eve Dallas, don't you think?

    I see a definite pattern in my favorite heroines, wouldn't you say?
