Okay, I may be jumping on the Rainbow Rowell fan train after this book.  I had downloaded Eleanor and Park for my Nook when it was available for like $1.99, but just haven’t been able to make myself read it.  So this one I checked out from the library to make sure I liked it. […]

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie Mc..

So, well, this is going to be a hard book to review.  I only picked it up because I saw the book Red Hill by this author, and it sounded really good, but I was told I needed to read this first.  So I checked it out from the library, thinking if I liked it, it […]

Revealing Eden by Victoria Foyt My rating: 3 of 5 stars This is another time when I wish Goodreads would let us give half stars. This was good. Not quite a 4 for me, but really not as low as a 3 either. I did enjoy this book. When I had to put it down, […]

I read this book as part of the 2011 Debut Author Challenge being sponsored by Kristi over at The Story Siren. And actually, this was not on the original list I posted when I signed up to do this. However, the ARC was sitting on the table at the bookstore, so I decided to pick […]

The Icing on the Cake by Aliso..

Yet another book I got through Shelf Awareness for free. This is supposedly a romance based on a real story through Match.com. As someone who has tried out Match.com, and knows it for what it is, something that still only works for the attractive people, just as in real life. I had to choke through […]

The Pride of the Peacock by Vi..

This isn’t a new book. In fact, this is a book I’ve owned for a long time, and read over, and over, and over. I got it one time when my Aunt Nancy was watching me for the day, and we went over to her in-laws for some reason or another. Anyone who knew me […]

Real Women Don’t Wear Si..

So this was basically just a trashy romance novel, not quite what I consider chick lit, it was strip cover, not something I bought at least. It wasn’t bad, just by the end I was a little tired of it. I definitely love the title, as I’ve never worn a size 2 in my life, […]

Take a Chance on Me by Susan D..

This was your basic romance book. I’d read another book by this author called He Loves Lucy. I enjoyed it, and this was okay, but almost too much your stereotypical romance. And one thing, it is like FOREVER before they actually have sex. It’s kind of a big tease, even in the chapter where they […]
