Review of “Love in the Afternoon” by Lisa Kleypas

Before starting this review, I have to admit that I could not finish this book, not because it was a bad book, but because it was a good book that kept going when it should have ended.  I really enjoyed Kleypas’s voice, the characters, and the fact that it was set during the Victorian Era …

Review of “All Fall Down” by Erica Spindler

Imported from Goodreads. A couple of months back, I rearranged my bookshelf because i was getting some new bedroom furniture and had to move the bookshelf to make room. While I was going through my books I found two Erica Spindler books that appeared to be untouched, and after looking at both books I realized …

Review of “Secrets to the Grave” by Tami Hoag

Imported from Goodreads. There’s something rotten in the state of Oak Knoll. Two books into Tami Hoag’s newest series and I wonder why anyone would ever want to live in the so-called idyllic Oak Knoll, California, home of too many killers to count. If it were a real town, I would wonder if it was …

Review of “Deeper Than the Dead” by Tami Hoag

Imported from Goodreads. Let me start this review by saying that I have been on an 80’s kick for the last month or so, and that may have influenced my decision to read Deeper Than the Dead right now. I also want to say that in 1985, my parents had only been married for two …

Review of “Lead Me On” by Victoria Dahl

I am very disappointed in this book. I read the first two in the series and I absolutely loved them, but this one just didn’t do it for me. I ended up giving up a little over half way through because I just didn’t care about the heroine. I had really hoped that I would …

Review of “The Heart of a Killer” by Jaci Burton

There are so many things wrong with this book I don’t really know where to begin, but I guess I’ll have to start with the prologue. At the very beginning of the book we meet Anna Pallino, a 16 year old girl, who works at an ice cream shop in either 1999 or 2000. Anyway, …

Review of “Love Irresistibly” by Julie James

I wrote this review on Goodreads a few months ago and now that I have deleted my GR page because of the new TOS, I am bringing my reviews here. A few weeks ago, I was walking around Barnes and Noble, feeling really good about a job interview I had just been on (unfortunately that …

Sick of all the Plagiarism Talk? Me too. Let’s Talk About Music.

Over the last few days, there has been a lot of talk online about another plagiarism case involving more Twilight fanfiction being used in a published book, and while I admit that this type of thing is crack to me, it is depressing.  So, what do I do when I get depressed?  I listen to music. …

Finally, Some Color…

Yesterday, I wrote about how I was in the middle of painting my apartment, which was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy almost a year ago.  After taking some pictures, I decided to share them with you, my readers. We’ve had walls for a few months now, but this is the first time they’ve been anything other …
