Twilight

29 November 2008 Jackie 4

I made it to the theater last night and saw Twilight and I have to say I’m impressed.  I’ve been hearing a lot of mixed reviews, but I really don’t have any complaints.  Whenever anyone tries to bring a novel to life on the silver screen, there’s always something that […]

Pg 56 Line 5

I got tagged by Today I Read for one of those fun memes involving that pesky book that is silently glaring at you to pick it back up.  I love these kind of memes, the one where you randomly look at a page and see what is going on. Generally, […]

I’m excited to say we have Lisa Hendrix stopping by again this week and just in time to give us something to ready while everyone is watching the big football game (I preferring seeing the 6-legged turkey at the end, but that’s me). Lisa is talking about reading challenges and […]

I’m the Vampire, That’s Why by M. Bardsley

26 November 2008 Jackie 3

Michele Bardsley is not a new author for me, but her Broken Heart, OK series is new. I just finished the first novel, I’m the Vampire, That’s Why and I have to say, I have a lot of mixed feelings about it.  I can’t say that it’s a bad novel, […]

Real Vampires Live Large by G. Bartlett

25 November 2008 Jackie 1

The second Glory St. Clair, Real Vampires Live Large, by Gerry Bartlett was just as fabulous as the first one.  It was a little harder to keep my attention, but I’m working a few other projects at the moment, so it is understandable. This time around, Glory’s shop gets fire […]

Show the Love

25 November 2008 Jackie 1

Again, what would we do without Urban Fantasy Land?  Yesterday, they posted the news that J.F. Lewis was recently kicked out of his non-denomiational church for his debut novel, Staked.  I don’t know what to think of this.  Honestly, we’re talking about an author who created fictitious characters in a […]

And I’ve found the last two challenges I’m going to do in 2009.  With the additional of these final 2 challenges, I’m giving myself a goal of reading 107 novels over the course of 2009. Since I’ve read 129 to date, it doesn’t seem like it’ll be that hard, plus […]
