Review of “More Than You Know” by Jennifer Gracen

I just can’t seem to get into a single book this week.  More Than You Know is  second book I’ve tried to read since finishing re-reading a book I read almost a year ago.  The other book, Less Than a Lady by Eva Devon, held my interest for about six chapters and then left me so …

Review of “My Kind of Wonderful” by Jill Shalvis

I am a notoriously slow reader, stemming from the fact that I hated books as a kid.  The closest I came to reading was watching Wishbone on PBS.  I figured if a story wasn’t good enough to be on television or made into a movie, then it wasn’t worth the time it took me to read …

Classic Movie Review: “White Christmas”

Every year when I was a kid, my mom would put on White Christmas.  Most people talk about how great It’s a Wonderful Life is and how it is a Christmas institution, but for me it isn’t Christmas without a viewing of the Bing Crosby/Danny Kaye movie.  With music by Irving Berlin and a cheery plot, how …

Review of “His Dream Role” by Shannyn Schroeder

I’ve been waiting to read this book for two months.  Seriously.  Two months.  It was the first of the Hot and Nerdy books that I saw on Netgalley and after getting it and the other two, I was really looking forward to the day I got to sit down with it.  I wish it was …

Review of “All Wrapped Up” by Kimberly Kincaid

Immediately after finishing The Sugar Cookie Sweetheart Swap, I went looking for more books by Kimberly Kincaid as her novella was the one I liked the most.  After a quick search on Amazon, I found that she has five Pine Mountain novels out and that the most recent one, All Wrapped Up, involved Ava Mancuso, sister to Sugar …

Romance and Recipes–Review of “Too Blessed to Be Stressed Cookbook” byDebora M. Coty

I am not usually one to use cookbooks.  When I cook, it is usually something that I learned from my mom, who learned from my grandfather or adapted from one of the other relatives, like her lasagna which she based on my Aunt Millie’s lasagna.  Recently, I decided to expand my cooking horizons and since …

Romance and Recipes–Mom’s Sausage and Peppers

My mom is famous for a few meals (lasagna, meatballs, and her sausage and peppers).  Whenever we had big parties, my mom would whip up a batch of this and it would be gone almost immediately.  It actually got to the point that my dad was able to tell his bosses that he was getting …

Video of the Day–You’ve Got to be Kidding Me

https://youtu.be/wgKFJisceOw   In my last post, I complained about music being blamed for things it cannot possibly do, so today’s video is live footage from the day Rob Halford from Judas Priest testified in court about the band’s song Better by You Better Than Me from its Stained Class album.  The song supposedly contains subliminal messages urging …

Review of “Operation Stop Hate” by Jessie Chandler

I am seriously torn about this book.  I like Ms. Chandler’s writing style and being in her main character’s head, but I have some big issues with some of the plot points that made it impossible for me to finish reading it.  I was excited to read it, although also worried that this was not …
