Experimentation on Books

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.07.2008

Mimi over at Mimi's Pixie Corner AND Jenny over at AusJenny tagged me for a meme.
Update: I got tagged by Sharon Hinck, too! How many tags can I collect?

Here’s how it works. It was started by Becky Miller:

I’m going to list five MUST Read novels and five Keep Your Eyes on These novels, then tag five bloggers who I’m asking to post my list on their site. They may then add one book to each list but must also subtract one book. Finally they should tag five other bloggers, link here at A Christian Worldview of Fiction , and comment to this post so visitors here know to check out how they may have changed the list.

If you aren’t tagged but want to play, copy the 'how to' paragraph above, make your own list of MUST Reads and Keep Your Eyes on These, and tag away. It will be fun to see if we can generate some book wars … uh, I mean, discussions … good, healthy, respectful discussions!

Camy here: I actually cheated a bit because, well, it's MY blog. I substituted more than one book to each of the lists I got from Mimi and Jenny because they were heavy on SFF (naturally, since Becky Miller started this meme) and I tend more toward romance.

My five MUST Reads:

Demon: a Memoir by Tosca Lee (NavPress)
Scared To Death by Debby Giusti (Steeple Hill) This book just won the Inspirational category of the prestigious Daphne du Maurier contest
A Soldier's Family by Cheryl Wyatt (Steeple Hill)
The Restorer by Sharon Hinck (NavPress)
Sunset by Karen Kingsbury (Tyndale)

My five Keep Your Eyes On These:

Calico Canyon by Mary Connealy (Barbour)
The Falcon and the Sparrow by M.L. Tyndall (Barbour)
The Fruit of My Lipstick by Shelley Adina (FaithWords)
DragonLight by Donita Paul (Waterbrook)
Daring Chloe by Laura Jensen Walker (Zondervan)


Single Sashimi by Camy Tang (Zondervan)
Shade by John Olson (B&H)
Courting Miss Adelaide by Janet Dean (Steeple Hill)
A Passion Redeemed by Julie Lessman (Revell)
The Miracle Girls by Anne Dayton and May Vanderbilt (FaithWords)

The bloggers I’m asking to post the lists (and make one book-for-book change to each list if they wish):

Janet Dean
Mary Connealy
Myra Johnson
Missy Tippens
Cheryl Wyatt


  1. Thanks Camy,
    Quite a few you mention I would have added also.
    I also tagged Cheryl will be interesting to see her list.

  2. Wahoo! Thanks for playing, Camy. :-D

  3. Cheater!! Actually, I like all of your choices, and I'm gonna go look up the ones I don't know. I was curious what it would take to broaden the whole of this experiment... See mine, I'm the one who tagged Mimi and was tagged by Becky, over at Creative Madness, cherryblossommj dot blogspot dot com

  4. Great list, Camy - what a shame it was only limited to 5 - LOL!!

  5. This totally rocks! Camy, thanks for joining in on the fun.

    Don't know if you ever played telephone as a kid. I had that concept in mind. Thought it would be fun to see how quickly the list morphed into something altogether other than what it started as.

    Heh heh heh, you've done a lot of help with the morphing.


  6. Thanks, lady!

    Also, can I just say how much I LOVE your new cover. LOVE it!

    Am buying now...

  7. Great job, Camy! Love your choices and how exciting that Single Sashimi is going to be out soon!! You rock, writer-girlfriend.

    Keep up the fantastic storytelling--we need great stories right now.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

I joined Sweet Romance Reads!

I just joined Sweet Romance Reads, a group of authors who all write sweet romances in a variety of sub-genres. I’m friends with several of the authors from my days writing for Harlequin/Love Inspired, so it’s nice to be able to join their group. If you’re on Facebook, this is their Facebook page , and this is their Facebook group . I posted my introductory post yesterday on the Sweet Romance Reads blog (Blogger), where I listed three strange things about me. Click here to read the post, and tell me three strange things about you!


「ひとり寿司」をブログに連載します! ひとり寿司 寿司シリーズの第一作 キャミー・タング 西島美幸 訳 スポーツ狂のレックス・坂井 —— いとこのマリコが数ヶ月後に結婚することにより、「いとこの中で一番年上の独身女性」という内輪の肩書を「勝ち取る」ことについては、あまり気にしていない。コントロールフリークの祖母を無視するのは容易だ —— しかし、祖母は最終通告を出した —— マリコの結婚式までにデート相手を見つけなければ、無慈悲な祖母は、レックスがコーチをしている女子バレーボールチームへの資金供給を切ると言う。 ダグアウトにいる選手全員とデートに出かけるほど絶望的なわけではない。レックスは、バイブルスタディで読んだ「エペソの手紙」をもとに「最高の男性」の条件の厳しいリストを作った。バレーボールではいつも勝つ —— ゲームを有利に進めれば、必ず成功するはずだ。 そのとき兄は、クリスチャンではなく、アスリートでもなく、一見何の魅力もないエイデンを彼女に引き合わせる。 エイデンは、クリスチャンではないという理由で離れていったトリッシュという女の子から受けた痛手から立ち直ろうとしている。そして、レックスが(1)彼に全く興味がないこと、(2)クリスチャンであること、(3)トリッシュのいとこであることを知る。あの狂った家族とまた付き合うのはごめんだ。まして、偽善的なクリスチャンの女の子など、お断り。彼はマゾヒストじゃない。 レックスは時間がなくなってきた。いくら頑張っても、いい人は現れない。それに、どこへ行ってもエイデンに遭遇する。あのリストはどんどん長くなっていくばかり —— 過去に掲載済みのストーリーのリンクはこちらです。 *** ********** 父に白い封筒を渡される前から、レックスの心臓は張り裂けていた——冷たい日本海で真っ二つに分かれる氷河のように、耳をつんざくような鋭い音がする。 (あなたを、ワサマタユ・スポーツクラブの男女混合および女子バレーボールチームに受け入れます……) その手紙にきちんと折り目をつけて、封筒の中に戻した。そして、膝を上げて横になっているソファの隣に置かれた、コーヒーテーブルに手紙を落とした。 彼女の入部を伝えるために、その日の午前中、ダレンから電話があった。 「ダレ
