Method Man

Few books make me happier to be happily married than this one did. I read an ARC of Method Man, the new romance novel from Naomi Neale and it was downright scary the way that people picked up other people in bars. Bleh. The absolute best part of the book (for me) was toward the end there was a radio call in show and a stereotypical geek called in. He answered the question "tell me, what do you like to do in your spare time" by saying "And I'm on one of the largest raiding guilds on World of Warcraft, the Perenolde server. That's a computer game."

Hello! Too weird -- I play that game, on that server, with my spouse. To take it one step further (and prove I am cooler than the geeky character in the book), our guild is the Magnificent Lovers. So take that, romance fiction that demeans my hobbies.....

Anyway, I'll review it for It was still a cute romance, and what the world needs now is love, sweet love (stories.) 341 pages.

But Lissa, I play on Perenolde too! It wasn't so much a demeaning comment as it was a sneaky shout-out to one of my guildies.

See you in the Outlands!

Naomi -- I'm so glad you found this to know that other Perenolde folks are reading your book! Ever since I read Method Man though, I have been hyper-conscious of whether someone is making me climb their yes-ladder...
I may never make it to the Outlands, because I rolled a baby Belf last month as my new main...if you see Lysistrata, say hello!
