Question – A Few Things About The Black Dagger Brotherhood

Question – A Few Things About The Black Dagger Brotherhood

Don’t worry, this is not a spoiler ridden post. Friday morning, I finished reading The King, the twelfth book in JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series.  I’m still not sure what I think of the book and my review posts tomorrow!  It was not terrible but it was not good either.  It was…well, it was.  (Hopefully I’ll be more articulate in my...

Anne Interviews Elle Kennedy

Anne Interviews Elle Kennedy

Romantic Suspense is my favorite genre to read.  When I came across the blurb for Midnight Pursuits by Elle Kennedy on the publisher’s list of April review picks, I was immediately drawn.  But even though the book sounded fantastic, I hesitated.  The main issue was I do not like to read books out of order and this book was number four in the Killer Instincts series. ...

Silly Stuff – 80′s Kid

Silly Stuff – 80′s Kid

When I saw this on Facebook, two things drew me to it.  I was amazed at how accurate it was and I liked how it was not your typical ’80′s kid’ thing you see on the internet.  Usually they mostly feature tv characters that were popular back then or toys that were oh so cool in the 80′s, but this one shows how different the times were.  It reminds us how...

Question – What Do You Think of Serials?

Question – What Do You Think of Serials?

Last week, Anne reviewed Roman Holiday by Ruthie Knox.  This is a book that was originally released one chapter at a time then, once all the chapters were revealed, bundled into a ‘complete book’.  Ilona Andrews did the same thing on her web site with Clean Sweep and other authors have done so too lately.  Is this a new trend we are seeing or is there actual demand...

The King Quotes

The King, the twelfth book in JR Ward’s hugely popular Black Dagger Brotherhood series, will be releasing on April 1st 2014. Yup, in 3 more sleeps. I may not be as excited over this installment as I have been in the past (I’m not sure why but I wonder if it has to do with the fact that this is a book about Wrath and not a character who has yet to have his own...

Darynda Jones posted this link on her Facebook page last week and I found it both fun and…disturbing.  Fun because this quiz is just that and disturbing because where I am reading people’s results and they are stating that they are Wizards and Phoenix and Unicorns I ended up being a Dwarf.  Um…okay… If you want to “play”, click HERE and it will...

Question – Have You Started Looking At Things Differently Since Reading Romance?

So we’re driving into Ottawa one day on our way to Jason’s parents’ house when I see a sign on a tall office-type building.  I don’t know why I never noticed it before but that day, I saw it for the first time.  The sign read “MMM Group”.  Immediately, I smiled and snorted a little.  Then I started imagining how that scenario would be...
