Reaper Read-Along Week 3

Reaper Read-A-Long

I am reading along with other Bloggers, 
First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones!

Questions Week 3
Chapters 11-16

1. I do have a soft spot for Charley's Aunt Lilian. She is sweet and soft while somehow also being a little dirty and I find that hilarious in an aunt. Do you have any relatives dead or alive that remind you of Aunt Lillian? If not, tell me about your favorite deceased relative. 

2.  In these chapters, we get a little closer to Reyes and his secrets. Neil, the warden at the prison where Reyes is currently incarcerated - and a high school mate of Charley's - tells a story about how Reyes ended up in the Coma and something he witnessed. What do you think of the story? What does this lead you to think about Reyes?

3.  One of the things I love most about Ubie and Charley's relationship is that Ubie aka Uncle Bob has absolute faith in our Charley. Maybe it's because Charley's been solving murder cases for ages and Ubie knows that Charley knows things. If you could pick a super power, which one would you choose? Seeing the dead? Invisibility?

4.  Okay, in my opinion, there is nothing better than walking into your living room and seeing the god-like creature  of your dreams standing there waiting for you. If you were in Charley's shoes, who would be standing in your living room??

5.  We get a surprise visit from Rosie's husband and we find out some information about Reyes...that he and The Big Bad are the same guy. What are your thoughts? Were you surprised about Rosie's husband or did you feel that one coming? What about Bad Reyes, had you already made the connection?

My Answers  Week 3~

1.  I do sort of have a deceased great aunt like Lillian.  She has been gone for almost 15 years now I think, anyway she was a tough bird!  She went finishing on oxygen up until about the month before she died (lung cancer) then she even complained she couldn't go while she was on her death bed.  In fact the month before she died, she would go and sit in her van at the lake and just sit there because she was too weak to get out to fish.  (We put a memorial bench at the lake in her fav spot for her funeral)  The reason she reminds me of Lilian, is because she was very well endowed, and she refused to wear a bra, and would tell everyone they were too uncomfortable and she liked to feel free.  She even used to comment off hand like that she needed to hoist her girls at a pic-nic table, she set em right there on the table... LOL

2. Well my first thought was Damn, a coma?  Then I was like what the crap, he is like BA and can move like a mo fo, so shouldn't he be fine...anyway I thought he is dangerous, but still smokin' hott!

3. I love Ubie too!  He is so sweet, anyway I go between reading minds, or being capable of being invisible..either would have its pros and cons, so you know.

4.  OH MY GOSH, Alexander Skarsgard, or wait maybe Channing Tatum, oh oh, Vicious from the BDB, no I know Teagan from Midnight breed...Swopes from Charley Davidson, Joe Magienello, Gosh I just can't decide!  Can I have a different one fro each day of the week... ;)

5.  Okay first time through reading it I made the connection between Big Bad and Reyes, but rosie's husband totally threw me and I admit I felt kinda like Charley did, even if I didn't really know the woman character...wait I am getting ahead of myself, the being shot is what we are talking about, YES that was a shocker, Damn Reyes sever a spine just like *snaps fingers* that!!  Plus Charley could have gotten even more hurt!


  1. Alexander!! Gosh I love that man! And I'm not sure if it's because of TB or if it's just because he's made of yummy. I'm gong with the latter. Yum. LOL!

    Your aunt sounds awesome. I love relatives like that. The ones that can enjoy life the way it should be even when life hits you in the face.

    And yes, Reyes = SMOKIN HOT. I think we need pictures and a reenactment of some sort. LOL! ;)

    (P.S. wanted to let you know sometimes people won't leave comments on blogs with that word verification because it's hard to read. May want to think about taking it off. :))

    1. LOL love the comment!!! Agreed Alexander is super yummy, plus I think we DO need pics and such :) Thanks for the advice, I didn't even know it was on!!!!

  2. I have a whole harem of men in my list too. :) It's hard to pick just one sometimes. Your aunt sounds amazing. :)

    1. Yeah it is def hard to pick only one! Thanks, she was a great aunt she is missed! :)

  3. First... I swear I would have loved your aunt. She sounds like a card!

    Oh and every day of the week?! WHY didn't I think of that. Oh yea... I like that idea a lot! ;)

    1. LOL thanks! My Aunt was awesome! Everyday of the week, I see the comment below, everyday of the year...although maybe each day for a month then rotate... ? :) Thanks for the comment!

  4. I loved your aunt story! She sounded like a great and fun and honest woman! The bench memorial sounds like a great idea too. I love your list of hotties. I want them all plus more! I need one for everyday of the year!

    1. Thanks! The bench would have been good for her instead of sitting in her van, but maybe her ghost hangs there? Also see my above reply, one each day for a month then repeat?...Yup I like that best! :)

  5. High five on the "one man for a day" idea. There's just to many and I couldn't pick just one either. :D

    1. Thanks for the comment! And thanks for the high-five! :)
