For the last post this week I’ve got an old romance novel and a YA paranormal story.  Both are books I really enjoyed, and remember well. The first book I want to talk about is one that I did actually review on my blog. But it is a series that I don’t think gets enough […]

First is The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory.  I ended up reading this one because of the movie that […]

Today I have kind of a theme like yesterday, in that both of today’s books are somewhat based in religious.  The first one is more of a humorous look at Jesus’ life.  The second one is a very dramatic series based more on the book of Revelation in the bible. First we’ll start with the […]
