Saturday Conversations: Book Couples

Saturday Conversations: Book Couples Falling in Love One of the things I love about the online romance community is the never-ending discussion of the BOOK BOYFRIEND. You know, those hot alpha males found in the pages of our beloved books… he is practically ideal in every way. Generally rich or self-made, handsome or flawed but in a sexy way, smart, tough but kind to those that deserve it, and above all, he finds his woman the center of his universe. I know friends that have lists of their book boyfriends. Or have found a real-life actor/s whom they feel represents their book boyfriend/s. It is a lot of fun to pretend and indulge...

Year in Review – 2012

Year in Review – 2012 Here we are at the close of another year. This year my goal was to focus more on reading and less on the mechanics of blogging, and I’m happy to report it was a success! Emotionally and mental I was in a much better place, finding time to read and enjoying writing the reviews. I am happy to report that the total number of books read this year was 97 books, up 33 books from last year! My original goal was to read one book per week, but up’d the goal to 65 books (one more than 2011). I blew that goal out of the water! I had also...

What Makes a Good Gateway Book?

What Makes a Good Gateway Book? In case you haven’t heard any of the recent online and on-the-air discussions surrounding Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James, this isn’t one of them! I will tell you, I have not read the book and honestly, I don’t intend to. This isn’t a commentary on Fifty Shades nor a discussion on whether or not one should read the book… I’m in favor of books that get people reading, and that is what this book is doing. What I am here to talk about is what I hope Fifty Shades of Grey will be for many individuals… a GATEWAY book: a book that brings new readers into a...

Sunday Snippet #95

Sunday Snippet #95 Magic Gifts Author: Ilona Andrews Publisher: Ilona Andrews (please note it is an unedited advance reader copy – a gift from Ilona to her fans) 25 December 2011 REVIEW HERE Jim sighed and headed toward us at a brisk pace. Tall, with the skin the color of rich coffee, and dressed all in black, Jim looked like he was carved from a block of solid muscle. Logic said that at some point he must’ve been a baby and then a child, but looking at him one was almost convinced that some deity touched the ground with its scepter and proclaimed, “There shall be a badass,” and Jim sprung into...
