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 …

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 …

New Feature for 2016: Throwback Reviews

Last weekend, ABC Family (yes, I know it is #Freeform now, but I just can’t call it that) aired a “Throwback Weekend” showing movies that were 10 or more years old (Clueless is 21, yikes!).  Personally, I think they were looking for a reason to air High School Musical and took advantage of the fact that …

The Fiction Vixen–Back from the Dead…Again

Hi, all.  I know I’ve been gone for a REALLY long time, yet again, and there are not enough words in the English language to come close to apologizing for leaving you high and dry for a second time.  The truth is that I’ve been dealing with a lot of stuff in my non-internet life …

Review of “Steam Me Up, Rawley” by Angela Quarles

I honestly did not think I would like this book as much as I did.  First, I’ve never really read anything that could be considered steam punk; the only time I ever tried it before I couldn’t get past the first page because I felt like I needed a special dictionary to understand half of …

Review of “Kill the Competition” by Stephanie Bond

Back when I first joined Kindle Unlimited over the summer, I decided to try Stephanie Bond’s Kill the Competition, which based on the hundreds of reviews on amazon, I thought would be a really quick, light read and while it is that, it is not in any way a romance novel.  A quickie in a sauna …

Review of “Naked in Death” by J.D. Robb

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been re-reading Naked in Death by J.D. Robb and that I have noticed a few things in this reading that I hadn’t in the past.  What disturbs me about this reading is how much I don’t like Roarke.  I have never had a problem with his character …

Review of “The Sum of All Kisses” by Julia Quinn

I don’t know what you spent the first day of 2014 doing, but I spent today finishing The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn.  As I commented in yesterday’s post, I was a little leery about this book because of everything that has been said about it, and I have to say that not everything …
