Okay, so this post is so not book related, but it kind of is.  It’s that time of the decade where I need to order new personal checks.  I’ve had these nature leaf checks for awhile now, but I want something different.  I went looking for vampires or werewolves or something paranormally.  I didn’t find much.  Actually, here’s what I found:

Sea Spirits from Style Checks (art work by Amy Brown)

Gothlings from Style Checks (artwork by Jasmine Becket Griffith)

Chance Encounters from Bradford Exchange Checks (art work by Nene Thomas)

Mischief Makers from Bradford Exchange Checks (art work by Nene Thomas)

Magic and Mischief from Style Checks (art work by Amy Brown)

Seriously? This is what we have for fantasy style checks? All fairies. Where are the movie horror personal checks or what not. Where are the werewolves, the vampires? I want some gothic, paranormal, creepy checks and I can’t find any. They are all cutsy.  I do like the Chance Encounters one, but my husband looked at me as if I was crazy.  Actually, his exact quote was: your checks shouldn’t be a source of your entertainment.  At this point, it isn’t about amusment or anything like that.  It’s about expression and what I’m interested in.  I want some vampires and I can’t find any.

I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. Why shouldn’t your checks be a source of entertainment?? If credit cards can be designed with our own pictures why can’t checks have something we actually want them to have?? Although I do really like Amy Brown’s art… I’d love to see something darker on the checks (= Gimme some vamps and werewolves over fairies any day!!

    BTW, which checks are you getting?

  2. LOL. Actually, I really liked Chance Encounters, too, so I think you should get those. Husbands just don’t get it, sometimes. Believe me, I know. Haha. Great post!!

  3. White stripe vest with big letters looks very a-line Marine style, deserve to bare color more slender legs low-heeled shoes, fair and succinct modeling makes your day. : White condole belt vest look sexy, tie-in 100 plait invincible the broken a-line Gucci clothes but let a person too many things to see, deserve to go up white shoes
