“let’s just call it a pause” & Book Review: INEVITABLE by Angela Graham (contemporary new adult) – Day 49

I’m almost at day 50 and I’m starting lose momentum.  It’s not that I don’t love the reading, I do but summer is here and I would like to enjoy it. 🙂  Between moving, kitchen remodel, keeping up with the kids summer activities and I’m trying to write…I feel like it’s time for a break. […]

Book Review: Biting Cold: A Chicagoland Vampires Novel by Chloe Neill – Day 48

Biting Cold: A Chicagoland Vampires Novel by Chloe Neill I read an article that Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse author) said once an author creates a “happily ever after” for their characters it is hard to keep the momentum of a series going.  She was speaking regarding having a character finding true love and how once […]

Book Review: FOURTH GRAVE BENEATH MY FEET by Darynda Jones (Urban Fantasy) – Day 47

I just finished FOURTH GRAVE BENEATH MY FEET by Darynda Jones and like the first three books, I loved this one!  Ms. Jones is a relatively new author but she is on fire.  I enjoyed this series so much that I gave them to my best friend as a wedding present. The fifth book is […]

Book Review: CLOSE OBSESSIONS: The Krinar Chronicles: Volume 2 by Anna Zaire (Alien Shades of Grey) – Day 46

CLOSE OBSESSIONS: The Krinar Chronicles: Volume 2  by Anna Zaire (Alien Shades of Grey). You may remember my review for the first installment of this series: CLOSE LIAISONS. I really liked everything about this book. A few of my counterparts took exception to submissive/dominant relationship but I didn’t mind reading about this extreme relationship mostly […]

Beta Read: Fantasy Fails with Flat Dialogue – Day 45

Beta Read: Fantasy Fails with Flat Dialogue . I really liked the premise of this story. The setup was beautifully done and the characters were likable but the dialog was a major turn-off.  The conversations didn’t sound natural and made the dialogue come across as flat. The first thing I noticed is the author didn’t use […]

Beta Read: Science Fiction Story Killed by Filter Words – Day 44

The last two days I’ve been beta reading two separate pieces and like most beta reads I have done, the author’s have requested that I don’t share. Not a problem since there are things I CAN share that I think would be useful to all of you. The first piece I wanted to share I […]

Book Love: EVER AFTER by Kim Harrison (Urban Fantasy Awesome-sauce) – Day 43

EVER AFTER by Kim Harrison (Urban Fantasy Awesome-sauce). I think I may have hit the perfect storm.  After a week of 90+ temperatures, yesterday we had a little lightning storm that caught the electrical transformer in our neighborhood on fire. (Terrible, I know BUT there is a silver lining.) The power company had to shut […]

Book Review: FERAL SINS by Suzanne Wright (Paranormal Erotica) – Day 42

FERAL SINS by Suzanne Wright (Paranormal Erotica) – The Phoenix Pack Series. I read a lot of paranormal romance and I think that makes me a little immune to the world of fantasy (nothing surprises me) and it also make me the ultimate connoisseur.  The author’s version of lycanthropy is very similar to other author’s […]

Short Story “Trust Fall” by Nakeesha Seneb (Day 41)

My friend, writer and super mom Nakeesha Seneb graciously offered me her short story “Trust Fall” to read and review for my “crazy challenge.”  How thankful am I to have people that want to lighten my load! My only wish is that I could share this short story with you.  (She wrote it for NYC […]

Book Review: SH*T MY DAD SAYS by Justin Halpern (Day 40)

For Father’s Day I decided to re-read SH*T MY DAD SAYS by Justin Halpern. AND, because my husband rarely reads, I read some of the book out loud to him. The book is only 193 pages and it is chalk full of hilarious moments and genuine fatherly anecdotes sprinkled in with a fair amount of […]
