According to the New York Observer Tom Lutz, launched a book review site lareviewofbooks.org. While I applaud any endeavor to provide honest reviews, I felt that the tone of the article made it seem like a one of a kind endeavor. In my opinion there are other sites that offer book reviews and remain committed […]
Pen on Fire by Barbara DeMarco-Barrett was a great book. Now, this is not for everyone. However, I had a baby, I’m working full time, and my life is generally crazy. So this book spoke volumes to me about finding time to write, committing to my writing, and not giving up. It was […]
Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Marillier is truly a delve into the fantastic through beautiful prose and detailed imagery. I was wandering around my local library and saw this book. I started reading page one and couldn’t put it down. This book was inspired by the 12 dancing princesses fairy tale.

Before you read The Desert Spear by Peter V Brett, be sure and read its prequel, The Warded Man. Essentially The Desert Spear picks up where The Warded […]
So, I happily discovered a new book series I am ravenously devouring. This would be the demon hunting soccer mom series by Julie Kenner. The first two books, which I’ve read, are Carpe Demon & California Demon. I really enjoyed both of them and have the remaining three waiting to be picked up […]

The Revealers by Amanda Marrone has a unique plot with some intriguing twists. The main characters are betrayed by their coven, which includes their […]
Awhile ago, I did a review of the first book in The Sweep Series by Cate Tiernan. Since then I’ve read up through book 10. I’m waiting on the remaining 5 books, which I’ve requested from the library. Needless to say I’ve enjoyed the books. They each have an element of mystery, betrayal, and […]
