These are kind of short books, just about 200 pages, and so I decided to fit them in before some books that I had deadlines for.  Plus, I’m planning to go to the Romantic Times Convention the first weekend in May since it will be here in my hometown this year.  And the author will […]

The Eternity Cure (Blood of Ed..

Of course I must first say thanks to both Netgalley and Harlequin Teen for allowing me to read this as an e-galley in March.  I just recently finished reading the first in the series, The Immortal Rules, and loved it.  I was so pleased when one of my followers told me the sequel was available […]

I normally prefer not to blog more than one time a day, I feel it might be annoying to my followers, but I completely forgot about the awesome contest author Beth Revis was hosting until today.  And I only have one more day to enter! If you’ve read her book series that started with Across […]

I finally got around to reading this!  Not that I didn’t want to, just the size of it I think kept me from picking it up when I had sooooooo many other books to read.  Not that I don’t still have a ton, I just decided with our late March snow last weekend that a […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  I’m choosing one that comes out next week, and I don’t think I’ve used it yet.  I have loved the Gone series by Michael Grant since I read the first one a few years ago […]

This is something sponsored by The Story Siren.  While it is a weekly event, I wouldn’t say that I get books quite that often, at least not anymore.  For awhile I was probably buying books weekly, but since I’ve cut back on my expenses lately, that is not the same.  Plus it feels silly to […]

Timeless (Transcend Time Saga ..

I had ordered all of Michelle Madow’s books into the bookstore where I worked a while ago.  But when this one came in, it got put in adult fiction, as opposed to teen fiction where you would think.  And so, I never noticed when it arrived since I was always checking in the teen section. […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.   This week I’ve chosen a book that is in keeping with the current zombie trend/obsession of mine.  I got an ARC of the first book last summer at BEA 2012, and read it last […]

(Sponsored by The Broke and the Bookish) Do you ever buy a book the minute it comes out, or you walk into a store and see it and have to have it, but then it is a long time, sometimes even years before you actually read it?  Well, I was glad to see that I […]
