Video of the Day — Ole Blue Eyes

I’m currently reading the first book in Erica Ridley’s Rogues to Riches series, Lord of Chance, and the hero has a bit of a gambling problem.  Let’s be honest and call a spade a spade: he’s got a gambling addiction.  To me it sounds like he started gambling because he was broke, discovered a talent …

Video of the Day: “I Can’t Stand Him”

Last week, I finished reading Pretty Face, the second book by Lucy Parker.  For those unfamiliar with this series, it takes place in the London theater community.  In the book, Lily, the heroine is up for a role as Elizabeth I in a new play and in order to keep the gig, Lily needs to …

Video of the Day — Queen via Ella Enchanted

I’ve been reading Marina Adair’s Need You for Mine, the newest book in her Heroes of St. Helena series.  The heroine, Harper, is constantly accused of “collecting people” because she is trying to fill the void in her life left by a crappy mother, who cared more about herself than her daughter. 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 …

Video of the Day–Stripping for AIDS Research

As longtime followers know, I spent my formative years watching soaps with my mom.  Between 1995 and 2014, I’d tune in to watch the goings on in the fictional town of Port Charles.  Even though, I stopped watching General Hospital two years ago, I still like to check it out at least one week a …

Video of the Day–Hear Me Roar

What a day.  Yesterday morning, I started my day listening to The History Chicks podcast about Elizabeth Cady Stanton, an awesome woman, who fought for women’s rights for most of her life, dying 18 years before women finally won the right to vote–a right that white men never had to struggle to achieve.  It was …

Video of the Day–Haters Gon Hate

Say what you want about this song, but Taylor Swift got one thing right–haters really are going to hate.  There are some people that are never going to like you; no matter what you do or say, you will never get their respect and you’re never going to impress them.  There’s a simple reason for …

Video of the Day–An 80’s Romance

A little while ago I finished reading Brotherhood in Death and I needed something fun and light because I was so ridiculously angry (let’s just say the review is going to have one hell of a trigger warning when I sit down to right it in the morning), so I headed over to YouTube to find something fun …

Video of the Day–Brought to You by Creepy Dolls

I started reading Brotherhood in Death by J.D. Robb (much better than that last book) and in one scene Eve and Peabody find a room full of dolls.  Both women are freaked out by the sheer number of them and of course this made me think of Dharma and Greg’s second season Halloween episode.  I loved …

Video of the Day–“You Complete Me”

https://youtu.be/9zkmE07X7-E   In honor of the Throwback Review of Sea Swept, I thought it would be a good idea to go with an equally throwback song that could have been playing on Anna’s radio, since she mentions listening to Springsteen’s music several times throughout the book.  Chances are she listened to this at one point as this …
