Howdy everyone! Another week, another blogger to promote. Today is all about Krystianna from Downright Dystopian. She’ll be telling us about her reading habits with the Reader Problems Book Tag. Take it away, girl! 🙂 1: You have 20,000 books on your TBR. How in the world do you decide what to read next? If I had that many books on my TBR, I’d probably just close my eyes and point to all the books. Whichever one I was pointing directly at is the one […]

The regimented and obtrusive nature of the clinic and its staff is torture to the deeply private, obstinate Stevie – and don’t […]

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 […]
