Review of “Love and Other Scandals” by Caroline Linden

After I found out I had a bit of extra book spending money thanks to the Apple Settlement last week, I took a look at my wishlist (i.e. my “Want to Read” shelf on Goodreads) and immediately zeroed in on Love and Other Scandals by Caroline Linden.  I’d heard quite a bit about the Scandal Series …

Review of “Magnate” by Joanna Shupe

The first thing that intrigued me about Joanna Shupe’s Knickerbocker Series (other than the fact that Knickerbocker is the full name of the New York basketball team) was that it took place in Gilded Age New York.  I remember reading about that time period in both my high school and college American History classes and …

Review of “Bay of Sighs” by Nora Roberts

A couple of months ago, I volunteered to read Stars of Fortune, the first book in Nora Roberts’s Guardian Trilogy for the Smart Bitches RITA Reader Challenge because ParaNoras are my crack.  If they were illegal, I’d be serving a life sentence for possession/intent to sell a controlled substance.  Unfortunately, I wasn’t a fan of …

Review of “Loving You” by Maureen Child

There are some books that make you want to read them over and over again.  They contain a special kind of magic that when you open them up, they invite you into their world and envelop you like an old blanket.  For me, Loving You, is one of those books.  The first time I read …

It is obvious …

Video of the Day — The Waiting Game

If you read my review of Breath of Malice, then you probably understand why this is the Video of the Day today.  This song kept running through my head as I wrote the review and it made me remember those old Heinz Ketchup commercials that used this song to describe the feeling of waiting for …

Review of “Breath of Malice” by Karen Fenech

This was one of those books that I was really looking forward to reading from the moment I requested it on Netgalley and was super bummed that I had to wait because I received it more than a month before its publication date (June 14th).  Finally, I felt comfortable reading and preparing to review it …

New Site for the Half New Year

This is a hard post to write.  For the last three years I’ve happily used WordPress for all my blogging needs and I have a decent following over there.  The thing is I’m having issues with the way WordPress integrates with Google products, specifically AdSense.  Don’t get me wrong, my blog (most recently called The …
