I received a copy of this book from the author, well her husband actually, who I was friends with in college, in exchange for an honest review.  This is her first published novel, I’m not sure if she’s written much in the past or this was her first attempt.  While it isn’t the type of […]

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 the sequel to a book that I just read this past month, a book that I’d won last year, and then really enjoyed once I finally got around to reading […]

First of all, thanks to Delacorte Press and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  I just finished reading it the day before it was published, also the day it would expire.  It was a quick read.  At first I was worried that it was going to suffer in comparison to […]

First, thanks to Crown Publishing and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  And extra thanks to whatever kept it from expiring on the date I had written, January 21st, since I wasn’t able to get all the way through it until the 24th.  I was a little daunted at first because […]

This is one that I believe I got a free copy of at the Romantic Times Convention here in Kansas City in May 2013.  I know, I know, I’m way behind on this series, but it was one I kept meaning to pick up, and never did.  It was definitely a good story.  I’ve seen […]

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’m stepping out of the normal box for this meme.  I’m very sad at the moment, as it seems two books that I traded for on YA Book Exchange may not be […]
