#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 »

#Discussion – 13 Books to Read this Halloween

#Discussion – 13 Books to Read this Halloween

I found this list of 13 books to Read this Halloween on Buzzfeed. I thought it was cool and worth sharing. Clicking on each title will take you to the book’s Goodreads page where you can add it to your shelf   1. The Invention of Murder by Judith Flanders In this fascinating exploration of murder in the nineteenth century, Judith Flanders examines some of the most gripping cases that captivated the Victorians and gave rise to the first detective fiction. 2. The Bell Witch by Brent Monahan  Known throughout Tennessee as “Old Kate,” the Bell Witch took up residence… 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 »

Book Review- The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

Book Review- The Good Girl by Mary Kubica

Okay, I listened to this on audiobook so I am going to be reviewing not only the book itself, but the audio performance as well I LOVE suspenseful books. I like when things are a puzzle and all the pieces don’t fit or come together right away. That is one of the reasons The Good Girl intrigued me. I knew it was going to be a roller-coaster ride of suspense. Also, the cover. Yes, I know the old saying about not judging a book by its cover. However, I am guilty of doing so on more than occasion. AND THIS… Read more »

Sideswiped by Lia Riley Blog Tour!

Sideswiped by Lia Riley Blog Tour!

I really enjoyed UPSIDE DOWN, book 1 in the series. Sure, I had a few issues with it like any other book, but they were fairly easily overlooked. I found SIDESWIPED to be the same way. A cute story about a strong couple in a power struggle, it was interesting to find out where Talia and Bran left off when Talia had to return home. This book began with Talia and Bran reuniting after several months apart. Both have anxieties about seeing the other. They are afraid even though they left loving one another that maybe one of them moved… Read more »

#Discussion: Book vs. Movie The Maze Runner

#Discussion: Book vs. Movie The Maze Runner

WARNING!!! This review contains spoilers for both the movie and book. Read at your own risk!! Okay, I don’t really know where to begin with this one. I am a firm believer in reading the book before you watch the movie. I was somewhat interested in The Maze Runner when I first heard about it. However, when I learned that it was being made into a movie with Dylan O’Brien playing main character Thomas, that alone was enough motivation to read it. (Yes I am 30 something, and I’m also very serious). SO I read the book months ago and… Read more »

I am so glad TIED releases today! Aren’t you? I’m sure Drew is up to no good as usual Please welcome Emma Chase to Bibliolatry Me! Awesomely and surprisingly even some men have enjoyed your romance through Drew’s eyes!

What was the easiest and hardest thing about writing from a male point of view? Thank you! The easiest thing about writing from the… Read more »

As Long as You Love Me Book Tour

As Long as You Love Me Book Tour

Wow! I apologize for this review being so late! I’m not sure what happened to the post! AS LONG AS YOU LOVE ME is yet another great addition to Ann Aguirre’s resume. Lauren, while not my favorite character in book one, began to win me over as the story progressed. While I cannot relate to wanting to drop out of college, I can relate to her adversities to crowds! Rob just didn’t do it for me though. He has many insecurities, and rightfully so, but for me, he came across as too insecure and not a male character I want… Read more »
