Sunday Snippets #13

Sunday Snippets #13 From Magic Bleeds by Ilona Andrews. Thirty minutes later we screeched to a halt before my apartment building. I jumped out into the snow, Slayer in hand. Saiman lunged into the driver’s seat. The wheels spun, spraying snowflakes. I jumped back. The car reversed, rolling over the spot where my feet were half a second earlier, and sped into the night. He almost ran me over. Coward. Let’s have a partnership, Kate. I offer honesty, Kate. I don’t have to outrun the Beast Lord I just pissed off, Kate. I only have to outrun you and hit you with my car as I hightail it out of here. The...

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. It’s baffling and leaves you questioning what the reviewer disliked so much that they didn’t rate it as well as they ‘fluffed’ it (stealing from Mar for a second).  That got me wondering what does one consider a low rating. I put a lot of thought into my rating scale...

Sunday Snippets #12 From Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh. She made an annoyed sound and sat up on her knees. “Why are you talking?” He folded his arms behind his head, delighted by the sight of her lush breasts displayed so beautifully for him.  He liked this dream. Even the panther was pleased. “Don’t you want me to?” He made it a temptation. “Well…” She frowned. “The whole point is to taste you… I guess you’d never be silent in bed.”  “You’re right.” He watched her watch him. Her eyes held such pure heat that he felt branded. The alpha in him wanted to reach out and tangle his fingers in...

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. I own all the books, I have a T-shirt, I am a member of the Twilight Lexicon forum, and my blogger name is even derived from Twilight.  I went to see Twilight: The Movie on opening day — all by myself. Unfortunately, I have no twi-friends near me and just can’t convince anyone else to go with me. 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...
