Title: Come SundownAuthor: Nora RobertsISBN: 1250123070Publisher: St. Martin’s PressPrice: $14.99 (e-book) $16.49 (hardcover) $23.95 (Audible)Rating: ⭐️⭐️ I read my first Nora Roberts novel when I was a 16-year-old high school junior.  I remember seeing her books in all of the drug stores long before the fateful day on which I decided to actually buy one but had never …

Throwback Review: The Dream Trilogy by Nora Roberts

There are some books that stick with you no matter how long it has been since you first read them.  For me, the Dream Trilogy has always been in the back of my head.  I probably read them a good 15 years ago and the last time was a good 10 years back.  As a …

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 “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, …

Throwback Review: “Sea Swept” by Nora Roberts

I finished re-reading Sea Swept late last week and for some reason I have been putting off writing the review.  I don’t know if it has anything to do with the fact that I’ve read this book so many times over the years that all those previous readings color the way I perceived it this time, making …

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 …

Review of “The Liar” by Nora Roberts

I’ve been a fan of Nora Roberts books for over ten years and I have to say I have never been more disappointed in one of her books than I was with The Liar.  It wasn’t that it was a terrible book, but it just wasn’t up to par with her others.  Books like, Three Fates, which …

The Worst Books I Read This Year

Last week, I posted the best books I read this year.  Tonight, I’m going to continue the fun by listing my least favorite books of the year.  As before, these books weren’t necessarily published this year. 1. The First Love Cookie Club by Lori Wilde I read and reviewed this book almost a full year ago, …

The Romance Reader Vlog #3

I swore I posted this the other day, but I guess the post didn’t go live.  In the third installment of the Vlog, I talk about the different books I’ve been reading lately and why none of them actually worked for me.  Mentioned are The First Love Cookie Club, which I reviewed the other day, and …
