Falling in Love With English B..

Posted May 31, 2011 by Lisa Mandina in / 0 Comments

Believe it or not, as much as I enjoy chick lit, I normally don’t get into teen “romance” novels anymore. What I prefer in chick lit is that I feel a connection or similarity to the main character, in other words, she can’t be married or divorced or have children, as I have or am […]

Okay, third and final part. However, not sure when you’ll see this as I’m still having trouble posting my blogs at home even though I can type them up and save them. First is Are You Going to Kiss Me Now? by Sloane Tannen. This is a teen novel about a girl who is a […]

Okay, finally getting around to adding another post about this. Hoping this one will get posted as soon as I’m done, as I have 5 books to actually review as well. First is Mercy by Rebecca Lim. This is another angel story. Our main character is Mercy, who wakes up and can’t remember who she […]

I’m thinking to do this volume in three parts, as I have compiled a list from the last 3 times I worked of 9 books. And I hate to put 9 books in as I always have trouble messing with the pictures and getting them lined up with the info about them. So, here we […]

2011 Debut Author Challenge 10..

I read this as an egalley from Netgalley. At first, they declined my request to view it because my blog didn’t have at least 100 followers. So that is something I’m working on, getting more followers. But, I was so interested in getting to read this book that I persevered and emailed them back, pointing […]

Bumped by Megan McCafferty

While I did enjoy this book, and hope that there is a sequel so I can find out what happens next, I must say it didn’t quite live up to all the hype I read about it. I think that I more enjoyed Delirium and Wither as what I consider similar dystopian themes. However, it […]

Abandon by Meg Cabot

I have to admit, that actually, until I decided last minute to go see Meg Cabot down on the Plaza a couple weeks ago, the only books I’d read by her were adult ones, like Boy Meets Girl, ones told in email and texts, and instant messages. Quick, fun, chick lit reads. I loved them […]

It’s been awhile since I did one of these, partly because I haven’t been working that much, and partly because I’ve been really busy. So this volume will actually include both nights I worked this week, but only 3 books, as again, with our lack of employees lately, I don’t have as much time to […]

Haven’t had time to do this in so long! But home today so thought I’d join in. The Book Blogger Hop is sponsored by Crazy for Books. This week’s question is: Are you going to Book Expo America (BEA) and/or the Book Blogger Convention (BBC) this year? My answer is unfortunately no. I’ve known about […]
