What Does a Book Rating Mean to You?

What Does a Book Rating Mean to You? Recently I read a post by Parajunkee in her Blogger 101 series that talked about writing a bad review. It brought up some great points. But it was this comment by author JA Saare that inspired my post: I can say that one of the worst things as an author is when you get a low rating but a glowing review.

New Moon: The Movie…

New Moon: The Movie… I just want you all to know that I am a Twilight Series Fan. I don’t hide that fact.

So when fall came about and it was time for the New Moon movie, I tried to figure out how I was going to get to the theatre to see it. Back...
