The Missing by Shiloh Walker **Power Puff Review**...

Nov 6, 2008 by

Blossum has not been in a good mood lately because the majority of the books she has read in the past few weeks have been major duds. Most of them are considered DNF’s (do not finish) and the others were just so “meh”, that she barely got through them. Katie will soon be posting a warning against them… ahem, an insightful and unbiased review of these books in the near future. It looks like Bubbles (Ana from The Book Smugglers) and Blossum are not happy campers at all with this latest Power Puff Girl review. **click on the link to read Bubbles’ review** One such book I had high hopes for, where I would break out of my reading slump was Shiloh Walker’s new release for November called The Missing. The premise is about...

Nov 5, 2008 by

Aspiring author, Lorelei Brown, who posted a wonderful eight part serial called Tarnished Angel on Dionne Galace’s (aka BAM) blog, It’s Not Chick Porn, is my very first guest reviewer here! The book of choice she has reviewed is Samhain Publishing author, Lorelei James’ Rough, Raw and Ready (Book 5 of the Rough Rider Series). **SOME APPLAUSE** Did Lorelei the reviewer, enjoy Lorelei the writer?

Check.So much hot sexxoring your eyes will cross? Double check. Chassie and Trevor Glanzer are happily married. Pretty much still newlyweds at just a year of marriage, they’ve both been through some tough times, mostly related to family. Trevor’s family is harsh, abrasive and...

Today…

Nov 5, 2008 by

“First is the danger of futility; the belief there is nothing one man or one woman can do against the enormous array of the world’s ills — against misery, against ignorance, or injustice and violence. Yet many of the world’s great movements, of thought and action, have flowed from the work of a single man. A young monk began the Protestant reformation, a young general extended an empire from Macedonia to the borders of the earth, and a young woman reclaimed the territory of France. It was a young Italian explorer who discovered the New World, and 32-year-old Thomas Jefferson who proclaimed that all men are created equal. “Give me a place to stand,” said Archimedes, “and I will move the world.” These men moved the world, and so can we all.” Robert F....

Meljean Brook Picks My Brain!

Nov 4, 2008 by

**Meljean of the sparkling red hair. Kate of the flat dull red hair** Today is not only special because we are electing a new President of the United States, but it is also new book release day! One such book that everyone should rush out and purchase is Demon Bound (Book 7 of the Guardian series) by Meljean Brook. My review of this wonderful book will be posted at Romance Novel TV on November 15. When I first started my blog, I had asked some authors to interview me, and Meljean was one of them. So instead if making it all about her today, why not make it about me? Meljean: You say that your blog is babbling about books … and more. What is the “and more”? Should we be scared? Katie: Everyone...

I Love Your Blog: The Trillionth Page- Carolyn Jean...

Nov 3, 2008 by

I first found out about marvelous Carolyn Jean and her blog, The Trillionth Page from the incredible Lisabea who has her own blog Nose in a Book. Carolyn Jean is so very insightful from the books she reads and comments on, along with the movies and television shows she watches. She is a hardcore Sookie Stackhouse fan and found great joy in the movie North and South and why Richard Armitage makes most of us all tingly inside. She does these amazing posts that make me think and laugh at the same time. She will post about why birds won’t go into her bird feeder along with a hilarious, rolling on the ground laughing till you puke post on how her kittens that went into heat and had a great night sexing each other...

Kmont and Katie Discuss Jordan Summers’ Red...

Nov 1, 2008 by

Isn’t it interesting how two people can read the same book and have two totally different opinions? So is the case between Kmont and I about Red (Dead World, Book 1), Jordan Summers November release by Tor. A segment from Kmont’s review on her blog, Lurv A La Mode: “Overall, this book read like a rough draft. The characters were easy to figure out long before the book ended – including who the killer was. Dialogue was stilted and boring. The worldbuilding became one-dimensional and tiresome. The book started out very promising and spiraled downward from the moment the hero and heroine meet.” My review of Red is now live on Romance Novel TV. This is a small part of what I thought of Red: “Jordan Summers’ Red takes an excellent twist on the...
