All the Paranormals…

It seems that October is paranormals month.  Maybe it has to do with Halloween being this month, but all I seem to want to read are paranormals.  I started out with older Kay Hoopers (Out of the Shadows, Whisper of Evil) and then moved onto her newer books.  To be honest, I had all but given …

Rebranding and Catching Up

To All of My Wonderful Readers, Thank you so very much for staying with me over the last months–I know it has been a very long time since my last post back in February and I’m not quite sure why I’ve stayed away for so long.  Back in February, in the midst of that frigid …

Guilty Pleasure Books

I was watching the newest episode of The Goldbergs earlier today and it featured the song The Safety Dance, which as far as I know has never been a cool song.  It is one of those songs that everybody knows, but no one ever admits to liking.  It was the Mmbop of the day (I will admit …

Snow Day Reading?

Here on the East Coast we had a pretty big snow storm yesterday–we got more than twice what was predicted and I know a lot of people stayed home from work and school today because of the snow and frigid temperature combination.  I actually managed not shoveling today (my aunt stayed home and used the …

The Romance Reader Vlog #3

Staying Consistent Throughout a Series

I am currently re-reading J.D. Robb’s Naked in Death for what is probably the fourth or fifth time and I am noticing things in this re-read that I haven’t before–things like Roark’s net worth and his relationship with Summerset, but also things like Eve’s POV–things that aren’t quite the same in this first book as they …

2013 in Books and What I Most Look Forward to Reading in 2014

As the sun sets on 2013, I am looking back at everything I have read in the past year.  There are a lot of books, both good and bad, but mostly somewhere in between–those 3 star books that were neither awesome or awful.  They’re average, and that isn’t a bad thing.  Being average means that …

Review of “The Rosie Project” by Greame Simsion

The Rosie Project was chosen as this month’s Smart Bitches’ book club pick and I tried to wait until the chat date, which still has not been announced, but I just couldn’t do it.  I loved this book.  It was as if The Big Bang Theory put Sheldon with Penny, but better because Rosie is closer to Don’s …
