G & U’s Top Five Reasons Reviews are Late

G & U’s Top Five Reasons Reviews are Late We thought we would come clean with all you wonderful blog followers of Twimom so you know when there is a late post or a day without a post….sadly, it’s most likely Gikany and Una’s fault (*Una’s head hangs in shame* mostly me…).   However, we humbly request you take a look at our top 5 reasons on why we tend to be late.  5. Couldn’t access computer since house was tented for termites. 4. The little munchkin thinks the book needs to go outside for some play time….with the puppy. 3. What do you mean reading is not a group activity?  I’m out here with all of you…...

G & U’s Top Ten Heroines that Kick A$$

G & U’s Top Ten Heroines that Kick A$$ Gikany and Una read a LOT of urban fantasy and fantasy since it is our preferred genre (although paranormal romance rates right up there as well).  But something we’ve noticed this year in our reading is the increase in women that are not just heroines in the classic Gone With the Wind style, but more like…well, check out our list: Xhex (Black Dagger Brotherhood series by J.R. Ward) Kate Daniels (Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews) Elena Deveraux (The Guild Hunters series by Nalini Singh) Lessa (The Dragonriders of Pern by Anne McCaffrey  Catherine “Cat” Crawfield (Night Huntress series by Jeaniene Frost) Mercedes “Mercy” Thompson (Mercy Thompson series by...

VampBard’s Top 10 ways to Blog About Smut Like a Ninja

VampBard’s Top 10 ways to Blog About Smut Like a Ninja When she’s not reading books for That’s What I’m Talking About, VampBard has a day job that really doesn’t need to know what she reads in her spare time. 10. Secretly, my favorite reason to have a Kindle is because I can read paranormal romance in public without using a book cover or wrapping my book in a brown paper bag. Doesn’t work for Playboy nor a pint of your favorite liquor; pretty sure someone would have eventually called me out. 9. Avoid discussing what you’re reading in public. Someone who knows someone that knows your boss may be listening. If you find yourself in a position where you...

Being Thankful…

Being Thankful… I wish to all of my US readers a very Happy Thanksgiving, and to the rest of you – a peaceful, relaxing day! I am thankful for many things this holiday season.  First, I am thankful for my family, especially my two children. They fill my heart with such joy, and I am overwhelmed with love for both of them. Although they have been known to drive me bananas, I can’t imagine life without them. Now, excuse me while I go send them to their respective rooms. LOL! I am thankful to each of you that stops by my blog to read the reviews and posts. I love the...

Life: From the Heart

Life: From the Heart I don’t like to take a lot of personal space on my blog – especially if it has nothing to do with books directly. But I am feeling really overwhelmed right now, and I feel like I’m letting everyone down – but most of all, I’m letting myself down. When reading my dear friend Marq’s blog, she was talking about being in a reading funk, I thought, yes, that’s me. But then I realized… it’s much bigger than that. I am in a LIFE FUNK. And it’s impacting all the parts of my world. In particular, however, it’s given me less time and desire to read, which means not being...

IAD Reading Challenge FAIL! Part Deux

IAD Reading Challenge FAIL! Part Deux Hey folks…. Yes, today is the day for my monthly Immortals After Dark book review and discussion.  Once again, I have not read the book. This is now the third month in a row that I have failed to keep up with my own challenge.  I am disappointed in myself and feel like I’ve let down my readers. But the bottom line is that the review load is more than I can handle at the moment. Life is only getting busier, and I honestly have lost the drive to try and keep up.   Also, no one was showing interest any longer in the discussions, so I felt like...

BBAW Day 4: Readers

BBAW Day 4: Readers Welcome back for Day 4! Today we are discussing how book blogging changed the way we read. Book blogging has certainly changed how I read in quantity, quality and genre. Quantity I find that I actually read fewer books because of blogging. Sure, I can blame some of the changes in reading because I’m now back to work part time, my kids have gotten older and life is simply busier. However, blogging is a big part. First, taking the time to sit down, write a review, post the review and mess around with blogging takes time. Add to that the time spent scheduling posts, mailing books, following up with...
