What to read, what to read… (with a flowchart!)

         I found this graphic while procrastinating grading my final exams checking my email yesterday–too cute not to share! But seriously–no one reading this is going to limit themselves to just ONE romance hero this summer, right? Because that would be so, so wrong….   (Clicking on the graphic will take you to the HQN site, where you can read synopses of each book pictured.) I have already read Waiting on You by Kristan Higgins–loved it; I think it’s my favorite of her Blue Heron series so far. I’ve only held off reading Katie McGarry’s Take Me On because I’m hoping…

The Week in Review: What I’m Reading 3-8-14

Curse you, Daylight Savings Time! photo credit: Brandon Christopher Warren via photopin cc Here it is. My least favorite weekend all year. Losing an hour of reading time…I mean, grading time. Yeah. That’s it. I can’t really afford to lose an hour of sleep either. But on the bright side–at least it’s not on my birthday this year. That’s not until Tuesday 🙂 photo credit: JD Hancock via photopin cc So…I need to make the most of the little time I have this week, clearly. Just this morning I finished reading Stim by Kevin Berry for a review later on this week.…

Book Review and New Release: Christmas on 4th Street by Susan Mallery (Book 12.5 of the Fool’s Gold series)

Title: Christmas on 4th Street Author: Susan Mallery Series: Fool’s Gold Genre: contemporary romance Published: 2013 Pages: 336 Format read: ebook Rating: C+ As much as I’ve enjoyed many of Susan Mallery’s novels, her Fool’s Gold books have been really hit or miss for me from the start. The last few were definitely on the “miss” side of the equation; this one was at least closer to the “hit” side. Noelle Perkins is, like many Fool’s Gold protagonists, a relative newcomer to Fool’s Gold. Her tragic past has been hinted at in previous books as she has befriended the heroines of the last three novels. She’s…

The Week in Review: What I’m Reading, and a Must-See PSA for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (10/5/13)

I love this video in a way that’s probably not exactly healthy. It gives me something to look forward to every October–I try not to watch it all year long. Now that I’ve got a semi-intelligent phone, though, I’m definitely going to pick up that app. In the interest of keeping healthy, of course. That’s all. Honest. Back to the real world this week–no more Baltimore Book Festival. (Until next year, at least. My sister-in-law said in a text as we chugged away via train on Monday that “we’d be glad to have you back”. I’m keeping it as evidence,…

Book Review: Three Little Words by Susan Mallery (Book twelve of the Fool’s Gold series)

Title: Three Little Words Author: Susan Mallery Series: Fool’s Gold Genre: contemporary romance Published: 2013 Rating: 3 ½ stars I always want to like Susan Mallery’s Fool’s Gold books more than I actually do. Don’t get me wrong—the setting is charming, the small-town feel is idyllic, and the characters are fun and quirky. They’re feel-good books, to be sure. I have enjoyed much about these books—obviously, because I keep coming back for more. Lately, though, their “cookie cutter” feel is beginning to overpower their overall charm for me. They start out with two characters—our hero and heroine—who aren’t in/don’t want…

Two of a Kind by Susan Mallery (Book eleven in the Fool’s Gold series)

Title: Two of a Kind Author: Susan Mallery Series: Fool’s Gold Genre: Contemporary Published: 2013 Rating: 3.5 stars I went back and forth on this one. And back. And forth. And back again. There were things I liked, things that drove me a little crazy, things that made me go “Huh?”, and parts that were mildly disturbing. I really enjoyed the ending, though, for all its abruptness (quick endings seem to be the way of things in Fool’s Gold, I’ve noticed), so I’m sticking with three and a half stars. My love/hate relationship of sorts with this series continues. Two of a Kind is the eleventh…
