My Life’s Quirks – Will the ‘Real’ Kate Daniels Please Stand Up?

Recently, Ilona Andrews revealed the cover for their next Kate Daniels book.  Here it it: If you are a fan of the series, then you would have noticed one thing right off the bat – this is not the same ‘Kate’ as on the previous books.  In fact, this is the fourth ‘Kate’ to grace the covers of this series.

Question – Do You Ever Wish There Was No Sex?

Question – Do You Ever Wish There Was No Sex?

I know, I know. You are all like me and enjoy reading some *wink wink* in your stories. So that basically makes this week’s Question almost blasphemous. But I figure I’m going to go there anyways. Sex in books.  The very first time I read a sex scene in a book, I was shocked.  A) because I was NOT expecting it and B) because it was GRAPHIC SEX IN A BOOK!  Yes, I was...

Question – Have You Read An Entire Book Only To Think “Why Did I Read The Whole Book?”

I don’t think I have an acceptable opinion for this Question because I blog.  Because I blog and write book reviews I feel that it’s not fair if I don’t at least skim the heck out of a book and finish it.  That way, I can write an honest review about the ‘whole’ book.  So when I ask myself this question but only to answer “because I kind of...
