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 a collection of novellas that are either not available yet, or only available as an e-novella.  They are kind of what you’d call prequels I guess.  Prequels […]

Allegiant (Divergent #3) by Ve..

Posted October 28, 2013 by Lisa Mandina in giveaway / 4 Comments

Like many of the reviews I’ve seen on Goodreads, I must say that I’m unsure exactly what to say, or how to even review this.  Also like at least one other review, I loved Divergent, Insurgent kind of was the usual middle book, not really great, but okay to get through to the next book. […]

Stacking the Shelves – O..

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  I haven’t done this since the beginning of the month, but truly, until this past week, I hadn’t really gotten many new books.  Which was kind of surprising, because there are several giveaways I […]

The Iron Daughter (The Iron Fe..

This is another book I got from my bookstore, and I enjoyed it as well.  Now, while it wasn’t as good to me as the first in the series, it still had some parts that I did like even better than the first one.  If you haven’t read the first one, there might be some […]

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Yes, I know I’m way behind everyone else on this one.  I’ve been meaning to read it for awhile.  But it was a big book, and I just had so many other things to read, that I just kept putting it on the back burner.  Finally I decided that it was time to read it […]

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 in a series that is a modern re-do of Romeo and Juliet.  While there seem to have been a few of these lately, I like how this series […]

It’s My Birthday and I&#..

So today is my birthday!  Yay!  I won’t really be celebrating with any of my family, already did my mom’s side on Sunday, and will celebrate with my dad’s side this coming Saturday.  So, I thought what could be more fun than giving YOU, my readers, the gifts?!  In fact, I got a Fierce Reads […]

Last Night at the Viper Room: ..

Thanks to Edelweiss and It Books for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  Back in the day (late 80’s, early 90’s) I was a huge fan of River Phoenix.  I was one of the girls they talk about in this book that read about him in the teeny bopper magazines like Teen Beat. […]

Booking Through Thursday #3

Posted October 17, 2013 by Lisa Mandina in / 6 Comments

Well, the book I’m reading is taking me longer than planned.  I should have gone ahead and posted a Waiting on Wednesday yesterday, but didn’t.  So I will have to go ahead and post this today, and maybe, hopefully, my review of my book tomorrow.  So, even though it looks like the prompt is from […]
