Review: 4 stars to Midnight Bites by Rachel Caine #bookbloggers #Morganville

MIDNIGHT BITES, the new Morganville Vampires short story anthology! It will bring together almost everything that I’ve written in short form about Morganville … though I did leave out some of the original “diary” entries that appeared on an earlier version of the Morganville website, simply because they were just scenes and not stories, and were generally really short snippets. This is all short fiction, and it’s been carefully organized into the timeline, so you can read from the earliest adventures (some of which belong […]

#Reviews & Update: Are You Going To Kiss Me Now? by Sloane Tanen & If I Stay by Gayle Forman

Just a quick update first:  I’m going to be away for 3weeks so may not be able to post anything during that time. Also, as in true pre-trip fashion, I’ve lost something. My new glasses. Good thing I still wear my old ones now and then, other wise I’d be stuck. I mean, my new ones were lowered in prescription, and they’re better for me, but the lens never cleaned properly. So…anyway. On to the reviews, yes?   Being marooned on an island somewhere off […]

BOOK HAUL #1 March 2015 I’ve not done a book haul in….oh god, years? I’m pretty sure this is either the second or third post I’ve ever done on it.
