Wanda @BookaliciousCA #Bookalicious is indeed "alicious"

Bookalicious: Derived from the word Book and the suffix Alicious.
Book: "A written or printed work consisting of pages....bound in covers. A literary composition that is published or intended for publication as a book". via The Oxford
Alicious: A suffix derived from the word delicious, that is used to combine with other words to form adjectives emphasizing or to "denote someone or something delightful or extremely attractive". via The Oxford 

You may not recognize the picture of Wanda, but you are sure to recognize the twitter handle: @BookaliciousCA. She is the author of the Yummy Mummy Club  Bookalicious Blog and the host of #Bookalicious Twitter Book Club chats. She is indeed someone delightful and extremely attractive both inside and out. In fact there are many "icious" words that describe both the person, her interviews with authors, and her chats. Wanda's Profile gives you some insight into the person who is seldom in the spotlight. Instead she is usually giving us insights into an author, or a literary work. I have found Wanda to be kind, supportive, insightful, and to have a fantastic sense of humour and adventure. She is a mother, wife, writer, and a champion for many causes and people around her. She encourages us to see topics from different angles, and poses questions that encourage exchanges of thoughts, ideas, and conversation. When Wanda steps out of her comfort zone, she does it with grace, and great success.
 Other "cious" terms to describe Wanda, her interviews, blog, and twitter chats:
Capicious: "Changeable" - Wanda can adapt to changing authors, conversations, and book genres.
Ficticious: "formed or conceived by the imagination" Many of the books we chat about are Fiction.
Ambitious: " Strong desire for success requiring full use of abilities and resources" Wanda brings her "A" game to each interview, and to each chat, making them the success they are.
Delicious: "Greatly pleasing or entertaining" Indeed Wanda and the #Bookalicious chats are both pleasing and entertaining.
