#Discussion: All Hail Social Media! Or Not…

#Discussion: All Hail Social Media! Or Not…

  You know when you get bored and you go through that category in your phone that houses all your social media? It takes FOREVER to go through everything because their are so many platforms! I’ll be honest, personally, I don’t really use much social media. Sure I love looking at what all the other crazies post, but for just me, I don’t post much at all. For the blog, though, it is an entirely different ball game. Social media is key to promotion, news, and general getting to know people. For example, I am a part of Cora Carmack’s… Read more »

All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

All Broke Down by Cora Carmack

Cora has done it again. Not only is she a super cool, ton of fun, and a little bit quirky, but she can also write on hell of a book! I just thought I was in love with Carson. Move over because there is another football player in town, and he is bad to the bone! You know how everyone swoons for the bad boys. Silas Moore doesn’t want anything but to focus on football. Unfortunately, nothing seems to be going right for him until he ends up in jail (Ironic right?). Dylan sees the good in people, but she… Read more »

What Else Is New? #22

What Else Is New? #22

This is a feature hosted by The Caffeinated Book Reviewer. Check her out! This Week in… On the blog Links I Loved/ News Of course we all heard the news about author Hale. Here is a post explaining the whole thing in case you missed the Twitter Explosion. I love this post on DNF book reviews. I am for DNFing a book. Typically I don’t review simply because I don’t have time if it is a book I just lost interest in. If it is absolutely terrible I might write a short review. Likely just on Goodreads, though. Love ghost… Read more »

Mini Review: Catch Me if You Can by Christine Bell

Mini Review: Catch Me if You Can by Christine Bell

When two con artists come together the sparks are sure to fly! Sadie and Jake are absolutely perfect together. Both of their back stories are compelling and it is easy to understand why they chose to take the path they are on. The flow was fast paced and it was easy to devour in one day. There were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that couldn’t be overlooked. Character development was strong, but it was the ending that dropped this story down a star. It was wrapped up too fast, questions were left unanswered, and the curve ball future that… Read more »

Review – What You Left Behind

Review – What You Left Behind

**I received a digital galley of this book for reviewing purposes from the publisher through Edelweiss. About the book What You Left Behind is a police/detective type mystery set in England. Two of my favorite things in one book. Detective Inspector Lorraine Fisher has gone to visit her sister Jo. It’s only supposed to be a visit; no business, but Lorraine arrives shortly after a young homeless man has committed suicide. Not such a big deal, except over the past year there have been several suicides in that community, so people are actually thinking its some kind of suicide plague…. Read more »

#Discussion- Weird things I do when I read

This post needs no explanation- the title says it all. So, as I was reading the other day, I realized I was doing something that might be considered by some as weird. The book I was writing was set in London, so I was reading it in my head in an English accent (not the whole thing, just when people talked). YES I JUST ADMITTED THAT. And it’s not the first time I’ve done it either. In fact, pretty much any book that I read where someone talks in an accent, I read in one. Crazy, I know. That got… Read more »

JR Ward/ Karen Marie Moning Signing Recap

JR Ward/ Karen Marie Moning Signing Recap

J.R. Ward is my new favorite lady! Not only was the signing a blast because we got to share our love for the books, but Ward had me rolling on the floor laughing. I am so glad I attended this signing. If you are a fan of J.R. Ward in any sense, I encourage you to attend one of her signing Q&As at least once. They chose to give out wristbands with numbers on them. I love this system because it guaranteed that if you got a wristband, then your books would be signed and you would have a seat for… Read more »
