Review of Home for the Holidays by Debbie Macomber

Home for the Holidays by Debbie Macomber is one of my favorite Christmas books and I can’t count how many times I’ve read it over the years.  I first bought it in paperback from Target, but this year I downloaded the Kindle version to read.  This is not a full length novel, but a book …

Movie Review: Mr. Miracle

I don’t usually review movies on here as the focus of this blog is books, but I need to review this movie (it is a book, too).  This is the third in the Mrs. Miracle series and the first two movies are pretty good (actually I prefer the movie version of Mrs. Miracle to the …

Rape in Romance

It seems that everywhere we turn nowadays women are being brutalized by men, when even people like Bill Cosby, deeply beloved for decades, turns out to be a monster, capable of assaulting dozens of women while showing the rest of the world how great of a person he is.  Nothing has been proven, but the …

Binging: Books, Television, and Movies

There was a time when binging was considered a bad thing–and in certain circles it still is, but with the over availability of digital content, whether that content is a book, movie, or television show, binging has taken on a whole new connotation.  I’m one of the many people that like to over dose on …

Video of the Day 10/27–In Honor of Gilmore Girls on Netflix

I have to admit that I am a HUGE Gilmore Girls fan and I shipped Luke and Lorelai like crazy back in the day.  I remember writing on my old Myspace blog about how I wanted a guy just like Luke (I still do, but he can have a little Richard Castle thrown in).  For today’s …

All the Paranormals…

It seems that October is paranormals month.  Maybe it has to do with Halloween being this month, but all I seem to want to read are paranormals.  I started out with older Kay Hoopers (Out of the Shadows, Whisper of Evil) and then moved onto her newer books.  To be honest, I had all but given …

Rebranding and Catching Up

To All of My Wonderful Readers, Thank you so very much for staying with me over the last months–I know it has been a very long time since my last post back in February and I’m not quite sure why I’ve stayed away for so long.  Back in February, in the midst of that frigid …
