Book Blurb:
Right now, I’m a redhead. I’ve been blonde and brunette as the situation requires, though an unscheduled color change usually means relocating in the middle of the night. So far, I’m doing well here. Nobody knows what I’m running from. And I’d like to keep it that way…

Eighteen months ago, Corine Solomon crossed the border to Mexico City, fleeing her past, her lover, and her “gift”. Corine, a handler, can touch something and know its history—and sometimes, its future. Using her ability, she can find the missing—and that’s why people never stop trying to find her. People like her ex, Chance…

Chance, whose uncanny luck has led him to her doorstep, needs her help. Someone dear to them both has gone missing in Laredo, Texas, and the only hope of finding her is through Corine’s gift. But their search may prove dangerous as the trail leads them into a strange dark world of demons and sorcerers, ghosts and witchcraft, zombies—and black magic…

My favorite Asian movie (for the moment) is Memoirs of a Geisha. Loved the story of this woman, thought it was compelling.

My favorite Asian actor hands down is Jackie Chan. I usually am more of a romantic comedy fan, but his movies are always so much fun, how can you not like him!

I would love to win Blue Diablo. I have heard so many good things about this book. Chance and Corine's story is very intriguing. Her past mysterious, and why does she keep changing her hair color, and who is missing? Would like to find out.

I have to go with booklover: my favorite Asian movie is Memoirs of a Geisha. Or Mulan lol.

Favorite Asian actress: Lucy Liu. She's so pretty.

I also have heard a lot about Blue Diablo, and I'm very interested in the blurb.

I'd like to read Blue Diablo because I haven't heard of it before and am always on the look out for new books to read.

The name of your favorite Asian movie...

I own so many that it's hard to choose just one. But I am going to have to say Blue Spring.

I hadn't thought of it before I read nightdweller's comment, but Mulan would be my favorite Asian movie.

Anyway, the question I planned on answering... "why you want to read Blue Diablo"

It paranormal and sounds great. I actually read something about it elsewhere and have since had it on my WL.

Favorite Asian movie is Kikujiro no Natsu (Kikujiro's Summer). It has Takeshi Kitano in it, and he's pretty awesome.

I've never been able to pick favorite actors/actresses, because they all have their different strengths.

I would love this book because I've been hearing a lot about it, and it sounds amazing. I've also been getting into modern fantasy a bit more, so this is right up the line.

Asian movie? What exactly does that mean? A movie with an Asian theme (i.e. set in Asia) or by an Asian or with Asians in it? I'm just going to go with my favorite movie set in Asia, and that would probably be The Last Samurai. I know a lot of folks dislike it, but I found all the stuff highlighting the samurai culture to be fascinating. And the soundtrack is gorgeous.

And now for all the boring stuff :P.
