Review of “The First Love Cookie Club” by Lori Wilde

I know, I know, Christmas was two weeks ago, but I just found this book on Scribd the other day and I decided to give it a try.  It looked cute and light, so I figured I was in for a good ride.  Boy was I wrong. Sarah Collier was a nerdy 15 year old …

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 Perfect Christmas” by Debbie Macomber

Strike 2.  After finishing Call Me Mrs. Miracle, I decided to give another Macomber Christmas book a chance, figuring that the problems I had with CMMM came from the fact that I had seen the movie version a couple of times and really liked it. I tried to like The Perfect Christmas, I really did.  It is …

Review of “Love in the Afternoon” by Lisa Kleypas

Before starting this review, I have to admit that I could not finish this book, not because it was a bad book, but because it was a good book that kept going when it should have ended.  I really enjoyed Kleypas’s voice, the characters, and the fact that it was set during the Victorian Era …

Review of “All Fall Down” by Erica Spindler

Imported from Goodreads. A couple of months back, I rearranged my bookshelf because i was getting some new bedroom furniture and had to move the bookshelf to make room. While I was going through my books I found two Erica Spindler books that appeared to be untouched, and after looking at both books I realized …

Review of “Lead Me On” by Victoria Dahl

I am very disappointed in this book. I read the first two in the series and I absolutely loved them, but this one just didn’t do it for me. I ended up giving up a little over half way through because I just didn’t care about the heroine. I had really hoped that I would …

Review of “Dukes to the Left of Me, Princes to the Right”

This is what I get for choosing a book based on its title; I guess I mistakenly assumed that the ability to craft an amusing title meant that the author also had to ability to write a good book.  Boy was I wrong.  I got about 60 pages into this before I finally decided that …

Review of “Fatal Affair” by Marie Force

Fatal Affair had such promise.  The plot synopsis was pretty good: Dead US Senator found at the Watergate by his chief of staff (COS)/best friend.  The cops are called in and COS recognizes the cop in charge as the one that got away.  The two work together to solve the murder and fall in love. …

Telling Someone to “Grow Up” via the Internet is the Equivalent of Throwing a Temper Tantrum

That’s some title, isn’t it?  My old psych professors would shudder at its lack of brevity that’s for sure.  It does, however, get right to the point of this post, which is going to be a bit of a rant over an attack on a comment I made about why I do not like the Outlander …
