Review of “Beta Test” by Annabeth Albert

I’ve been waiting to read this book since finishing Status Update several months ago.  I didn’t think I could like something as much as I did that one, but Beta Test blew that one out of the water.  I started it last night, not long after finishing the disappointment that was Deep Dark and finished it about an hour ago.  This …

Review of “Deep Dark” by Laura Griffin

Deep Dark is the newest Tracers series novel by Laura Griffin.  I first heard about it through the XOXO Afterdarkcast and was excited about a romantic thriller involving a white hat hacker fighting a black hat hacker/serial killer.  Pretty much every procedural has done something involving the Dark Web and I figured that the title …

Review of “The Spinster’s Guide to Scandalous Behavior” by JenniferMcQuiston

After finishing The Diary of an Accidental Wallflower, I felt the need to dive into its sequel, The Spinster’s Guide to Scandalous Behavior, which is about 10x better than its predecessor.  Gone were all of the problems I had with the first book, but unfortunately, they were replaced by a new set of them. Lucy Westmore was …

Video of the Day–Stripping for AIDS Research

As longtime followers know, I spent my formative years watching soaps with my mom.  Between 1995 and 2014, I’d tune in to watch the goings on in the fictional town of Port Charles.  Even though, I stopped watching General Hospital two years ago, I still like to check it out at least one week a …

Video of the Day–Hear Me Roar

What a day.  Yesterday morning, I started my day listening to The History Chicks podcast about Elizabeth Cady Stanton, an awesome woman, who fought for women’s rights for most of her life, dying 18 years before women finally won the right to vote–a right that white men never had to struggle to achieve.  It was …

Video of the Day–Haters Gon Hate

Say what you want about this song, but Taylor Swift got one thing right–haters really are going to hate.  There are some people that are never going to like you; no matter what you do or say, you will never get their respect and you’re never going to impress them.  There’s a simple reason for …

Review of “The Diary of an Accidental Wallflower” by Jennifer McQuiston

I bought this book a while back when it was on sale for about $2, but never got around to reading it.  I finally decided it was time after giving up on “In the Waning Light,” which I was supposed to review for the Smart Bitches RITA Reader Challenge 2016.  While I’m glad I read …

Review of “Because of Miss Bridgerton” by Julia Quinn

I first picked up a Julia Quinn novel at the Howard Beach branch of the Queens Borough Public library at the tail end of 2013 and I became immediately addicted.  I glommed the four Smythe-Smith novels (at that point, I believe 3 were out), but was somewhat afraid to pick up a Bridgeton novel because …

Review of “Nobody But You” by Jill Shalvis

Anytime I get approved for a Jill Shalvis book by her publisher, I do a little happy dance because I know I’m in for a good time.  Her characters are well developed, the dialogue sharp, and the sex scenes steamy.  This was no exception. Sophie Marren is trying to pull her life back together after …

Review of “The Obsession” by Nora Roberts

To say I’m a Nora Roberts fangirl would be an understatement. She’s been an auto-buy for me for about 14 years, but to be honest, I’d completely forgotten buying this book.  Her last few haven’t been great and I was actually considering skipping this one when I realized I’d already bought it.  After reading it, …
