Fat Vampire by A. Rex

1 October 2010 Lisa 7

When I first read the description for Fat Vampire: A Never Coming of Age Story by Adam Rex, I couldn’t wait to read the book.  I pre-ordered it and as soon as I was done reading books that had review deadlines, I immediately started it.  The book sounded like an […]

Scoundrel by Z. Archer

20 September 2010 Lisa 0

For those of you that read my review of Zoe Archer’s Warrior, you know that I was unsure of my thoughts on her The Blades of Rose series.  However, I had told Jackie I was going to review the second book and I didn’t want to let her down.  So […]

Warrior by Z. Archer

18 September 2010 Lisa 4

I don’t pretend to be an expert on Urban Fantasy…I’ve barely even scratched the surface when it comes to the genre.  So when Jackie asked me if I wanted to read and review Zoe Archer’s Warrior, the first in her The Blades of the Rose series, I was excited to […]

Liar, Liar by KJ Larsen

17 August 2010 Lisa 4

When I first read about Liar Liar by K. J. Larsen, I couldn’t help but be interested.  I can’t resist a book that claims to be written “with a spirit that readers of Janet Evanovich and Lisa Scottoline will love”, as I am a huge Janet Evanovich fan.  Thankfully I […]

Dark and Disorderly by B. Harris

13 August 2010 Lisa 5

I’ve never thought of myself as a big Urban Fantasy or Paranormal book fan.  I’ve read a handful of vampire books (The Vampire Dairies, Twilight saga, and a few others), but despite my fascination with vampires and ghosts, it’s not a genre I have gravitated towards.  In light of this, […]

Pride and Prejudice by J. Austen

3 August 2010 Lisa 5

Recently I challenged myself to start adding more classic literature into my reading rotation.  So when I got my Kindle and saw all of the free classics that I could download, I thought it was time to get started.  The first one I chose to read was Jane Austen’s Pride […]

Jemima J by J. Green

30 July 2010 Lisa 7

As a woman who has struggled with my weight for the past 10 years of my life, I found myself intrigued by the book synopsis for Jemima J: A Novel About Ugly Ducklings and Swans by Jane Green. Jemima Jones is overweight. About one hundred pounds overweight. Treated like a […]

Good in Bed by J. Weiner

22 July 2010 Lisa 6

From the first page of Jennifer Weiner’s book Good in Bed, I was hooked.  This is the first time I’ve read one of Weiner’s books and it definitely didn’t take long for me to realize it would not be the last. For twenty-eight years, things have been tripping along nicely for […]

Finger Lickin’ Fifteen by J. Evanovich

20 July 2010 Lisa 10

A small warning…I have to admit to some bias when it comes to the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich.  From the very first line of the very first book in this series, I was completely and totally hooked.  It is by far one of my all time favorites and […]

Eat Pray Love by E. Gilbert

16 July 2010 Lisa 7

I’m not a fan of Oprah (I know! *gasp* LOL), but my mother-in-law happened to have it turned on when author Elizabeth Gilbert was on talking about her book Eat Pray Love.  This book is not a normal read for me, but I couldn’t help but be intrigued after watching […]
