Book Review and New Release: Mercy by Jan Coffey

 Title: Mercy Author: Jan Coffey Genre: paranormal romance Published: 2013 Pages: 55 Format read: ebook Rating: B+ Mercy is a quick read, but spookily satisfying nonetheless.

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…

Books on Sale: Meg Cabot’s Size 12 is Not Fat (Heather Wells mystery series #1) is the B&N Spotlight Book!

(I’m reading book five, The Bride Wore Size 12, right now–though MM#2 finished it first, darn her.) Each–month? few weeks? I’m not sure, actually, how long each spotlight lasts, so be sure to get it while you can) Barnes & Noble features an author on their Nook book…

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 and New Release: Wish Upon a Star by Michelle McLean

  Title: Wish Upon a Star Author: Michelle McLean Genre: paranormal/sci fi romance Published: 2013 Pages: 120 Format read: ebook Rating: C I don’t read a lot of zombie-related fiction; for the most part I leave that to Mini Moe #1; but Warm Bodies is sitting in my TBR pile–I’ve heard good things. Something about this one spoke to me, though, so I decided to request it. It’s a novella and Halloween is coming, so I thought, why not?
