Book Review: Silver Shadows by Richelle Mead

The Bloodlines series is drawing to a close. After this installment, there is only one book left. I am going to miss these characters so much – is it possible to have a spin-off of a spin-off? Probably not. Luckily, I have always been a big fan of re-reading books that I enjoy. There isn’t a lot I can say without spoiling this one. It’s told from the points of view of Sydney and Adrian, and we spend a lot less time with the gang at Rosewood. We start off with Syd in re-education and Adrian in a downward spiral […]

How Many Plugins Is “Too Many”?

We have 42 36 active plugins. I feel like that is a ton of plugins, compared to what (I believe) other bloggers have.  I’m a bit of a plugin junkie:  I see a plugin that looks interesting and/or useful, and I’m installing it on our site.  I’ve tried several times to get rid of some, but every time I go through the list, I can justify each one!

Discussion:  Sometimes I Just Don’t Feel Like Writing Reviews

Confession: I don’t like writing reviews. Actually, I hate writing reviews. It’s not because I’m lazy (okay, sorta) or that I hated the book (usually not true); I simply struggle with getting my thoughts out of my brain and into print in any kind of cohesive form – likely because I want my thoughts to be original and my own. Whereas this post is probably going to be a bunch of word vomit that I spew in 5 minutes. When I finish a book, I mark it as complete on Goodreads and then struggle with what rating to give it, […]

An Heiress for All Seasons by Sophie Jordan

What I Liked The setting was beautiful. Picturesque snowscapes and castles, and women riding side seat with gorgeous gowns.  Jordan is especially good at building her worlds so her reader can be lost in it. The male lead character, Will, is pragmatic and kind Unlike an Earl you would picture who comes from fancy lineage.  He was not fond of the idea of an arranged marriage to some heiress he didn’t even know, because he (wrongly) assumes all heiresses are the same:  spoiled, arrogant, vapid.  When he comes upon Violet, it is clear the connection is strong, but Violet isn’t […]
