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 …

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 …

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 …

The Books I Am Looking Forward to Reading

It seems that I am back in the reading swing of things and there are a few books that I’m chomping at the bit to read. 1.  Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness: I’m currently reading A Discovery of Witches and I am just loving it.  The writing is wonderful and I really like the world …

My Current Reads

Since finding out that I need to have 4 teeth out a couple of weeks ago, I haven’t been in the mood to do much other than binge on Netflix.  However, I have recently started two books, What Happens in London by Julia Quinn, which I am sad to say isn’t as engaging as the other …

Going Through Another Dry Spell

Since finishing The Passion of the Purple Plumeria, I have been struggling to get through a single book.  First, there was Dukes to the Left of Me, Princes to the Right, which as anyone that has read this blog in the past week and a half knows, I absolutely hated it.  Then, I decided to re-read the …

Trying a New Author

Until recently, I pretty much stuck with the same authors, my bookshelves looking like an homage to Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb and Karen Rose.  I was loathe to try anyone new, and honestly I’m not sure why.  I didn’t start out only wanting to read one author (boy would my reading have been limited–7 books until Casual …

The Obligatory “What I’m Reading Now” Post

Over the last few days I haven’t been reading all that much–I guess finishing two books in two days takes a lot out of a girl.  That definitely played a part in it, but I’ve been in such shock over Cory Monteith’s death that I haven’t really been in the mood to read since the …

What I’m Reading Now

Anyone that has known me since I was a kid knows that I absolutely hated reading.  None of the books that I was assigned to read at school were very interesting–at times they were so boring that I literally fell asleep while reading them (why, hello A Separate Peace–8th grade summer reading), so it came as …
