November 2011 Wrap-up

November 2011 Wrap-up

  Oh November, what an unproductive month you have been!!  I honestly think the early darkness with cold and foggy weather really messes with me.  So, there wasn’t as much reading as I would’ve liked going on in November, and certainly not enough reviewing.  THEN my stupid mouse buttons on my laptop quit working.  Why?  […]

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

I’m going to admit it!  I was afraid that I might not like The Pledge, so I became Ms. Procrastination when it came to reading it. Now, I can honestly say that I had nothing to be afraid of – I actually really liked it.  I wasn’t quite sure about the whole language thing at […]

Hollowmen by Amanda Hocking

Hollowmen by Amanda Hocking

I can’t even tell you how much I love this series!  I read Hollowland back in March, and ever since then, I stalked Amanda’s blog like crazy.  There are only a handful of author’s I keep major tabs on, and she is one of them.  I was beyond stoked when Hollowmen went up on Amazon!  […]

Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts

Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts

I’ve had this book since it was first released a few years ago.  Somehow, it and a couple of other books were stored away, still in the never opened Amazon box.  I found them a couple weeks ago and they’re just like new.  I’m so glad I found it, because I probably wouldn’t have sought […]

The Discovery by K.C. Neal

The Discovery by K.C. Neal

I love when books flow so smoothly, that I don’t even realize that I’ve reached the end.  And then that’s when the depression sets in. *sigh* When I started Pyxis, I honestly didn’t know what to expect, or what specifically the story was about. Not knowing actually made reading the book even more interesting. The […]

Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts

Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts

Wow.  Wow.  Wow.  How do I thoroughly express how this book made me feel?  I can’t.  Dark Inside is one of those books that seriously got to me.  I wasn’t even going to read this book, and I am so glad I changed my mind at the last minute.  I started reading it around 11pm […]
