First, thanks to Chronicle Books and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this.  Now, I have to admit that I’ve never read Little Women, or seen the movie, or read anything by Louisa May Alcott.  But, I’d never read Jane Eyre until I read the book The Eyre Affair.  While this was […]

First thanks to HarperTeen and Edelweiss for allowing me to read an e-galley of this title.  I have to say that I am one of the biggest fans of Heather Brewer, and consider myself to belong to her minion horde.  I’ve met her several times, and plan to meet her again any time she is […]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.

Stacking the Shelves is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.  It is a way for us to share the new books we have collected.  First I want to share some magazines I bought.  I was very sad when Leonard Nimoy passed away recently.  He had always reminded me of my grandfather.  Unfortunately there aren’t any biographies that are […]

Thanks to Kathy at I Am a Reader for allowing me to read a copy of this and be part of a review group for this title.  Working it Out is a very quick, cute romance.  It was a fun read, with interesting, but somewhat predictable characters.  The story itself wasn’t really that different from […]
