Review: Havoc by Ann Aguirre

Havoc Author: Ann Aguirre Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Havoc is the second installment of the Dred Chronicles.  It continues to follow main characters Dresdemona  “Dred” Devos a.k.a.

Review: Guarding Poppy by Christine Wenrick

Guarding Poppy Author: Christine Wenrick Reviewer: Nima Rating: A What I’m Talking About: Poppy Honeywell knows she’s cursed. She’s been told that her entire life.  The best evidence, at least initially, that she’s cursed seems to be the fact that she’s desperately clumsy. Not Bella Swan clumsy, but major destruction of property, run for your […]

Review: What Dreams May Come by Beth M. Honeycutt

What Dreams May Come Author: Beth M. Honeycutt Reviewer: Nima Rating: C+ What I’m Talking About: What Dreams May Come is the debut effort of author Beth M. Honeycutt.

Review Frisky Business by Tawna Fenske

Frisky Business Author: Tawna Fenske Reviewer: Nima Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Tawna Fenske is a new author to me.  Frisky Business is her third romantic comedy, and it was well-timed because I needed a good laugh—and a few audible groans.  It’s clear that Fenske has a very naughty sense of humor.  Given the […]

Review: Just Destiny by Theresa Rizzo

Just Destiny Author: Theresa Rizzo   Reviewer: Nima Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: Just Destiny was presented to me as a contemporary romance, and while it had love at its very core, it doesn’t read like a typical romance.  There is sweetness, sincerity, and fleeting kisses, but no swooning or heaving.  In fact, there isn’t […]

Saturday Conversations: Treasured Pearls by Nima

Treasured Pearls, Past and Present A short while ago, I endured an hour at the public library with a pack of cub scouts.  At eight and nine years old, their world is electronic.  There is almost no debate between e-books and books of paper and glue, electronics will always win.  It’s their most comfortable medium […]

Review: Melting the Ice by Jaci Burton

Melting the Ice Author: Jaci Burton Reviewer: Nima Rating: B- What I’m Talking About: As a general rule, Jaci Burton’s books are worth buying just for the covers.  I think they need to generate a Play-by-Play Series calendar.  Her latest installment, Melting the Ice, should be February, not only for Valentine emphasis in the book […]
