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 […]

Today I’ve picked an oldie, but a goodie?  This is a series that I loved back in middle school.  No, I would never recommend for a middle schooler to read it now that I am an adult, but at the time, I guess my parents didn’t realize what it was about.  You see they’d made […]

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 […]

About a month ago I got a stripped cover copy of the 2nd book in this series from the bookstore where I work.  So I had to go to the library to check out the first book.  And then, wouldn’t you know, the first book became a stripped cover at my bookstore, so now I […]

Review: Starry Night by Isabe..

Okay, I try not to read reviews until I’m either done with, or almost done with a book.  And can I say that I am shocked by the negativity this book is receiving?  I was very lucky to get an ARC of this at BEA, and after reading it, let me say how glad I […]

A to Z April – R: Roman..

Posted April 21, 2014 by Lisa Mandina in / 6 Comments

Now, I’m not what you’d call someone who picks up books just because they are romance.  But, I do like a romance within a story.  I just need there to be more than just a romance.  I read YA mostly these days, but I have read more adult romances in the past.  I preferred the […]
