Sunday Thoughts and Whatnot

Sunday Thoughts and Whatnot

So, I’ve been pretty lazy these days.  It’s practically mid-month with the 14th looming in the horizon and I have barely finished The Importance of Being Wicked.  Okay, blame it on the fact that I have been exhausted from work and the Boss (hubby) and I have been gallivanting to god knows where.  I know, excuses smexcuses but that’s that. One good thing that came out within the last couple of weeks was the fact that I recently rediscovered the public library system!  For the last couple of years, I have let my library card gather dust so I finally […]

Big Brother is Watching

Big Brother is Watching

No.  I am not talking about the reality show Big Brother.  I am talking about the awesome book 1984 by George Orwell!  This is my first foray into audiobook “reading” and I must say that I am hooked!  I am 2 chapters deep into this awesome book and I am loving it!  So yeah, noob here but hey, I expected not to like listening to an audiobook!  Plus, it helps pass time while stuck in traffic!  And LA traffic is the worst at around 5-ish in the PM. Here’s my favorite line so far: “He who controls the past controls […]

A Mermaid’s Kiss by Joey W. Hill | Book Review

A Mermaid’s Kiss by Joey W. Hill | Book Review

MY THOUGHTS This story is pretty tough for me to review.  At this time, I do not want to give out a summary of the story and I will just go ahead and give my thoughts.  The story starts, innocently enough with a mermaid, Anna rescuing an angel falling from the sky.  Apparently, this angel, Jonah was wounded in a war between Angels and Dark Ones that has been going on for centuries.  Wounded and unable to fly, Anna saves him and with his direction, brought him to an underwater cavern that has magical properties.  At this point, Jonah asks […]

Monthly Mini: TBR February

Monthly Mini: TBR February

It’s February and it’s the month where two hearts beat as one.  Okay, so that sounded so corny but hey, you are allowed to be corny during Valentine’s Day right? Right. Anywho, what better way to start the month with a mini challenge.  This month, I will be reading and reviewing four books on my TBR shelf.  Of course, all of them are romance themed so it does work into the season.   Well, what are you guys planning to read this month?

Their friendship started when April, Olivia’s best friend invited her to have dinner with another friend Troy, Zach’s roommate.  April and Troy try to match them up together […]

After the Abduction by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

After the Abduction by Sabrina Jeffries | Book Review

  I am currently reading Sabrina Jeffries’ backlist.  I believe I started reading some of her backlist last year, but I wasn’t able to read any book from the Swanlea Spinster Series.  This book can be read as a stand alone however, there are mentions of the other sisters.  Unfortunately, this story picks up after Juliet gets abducted (hence the title After the Abduction, duh!) so we never get to read about how she was abducted but we do get an answer as to why. As I have mentioned, the story starts about 2 years after Juliet Laverick gets abducted […]

Book Challenge 2013: A Year of Romance

Book Challenge 2013: A Year of Romance

I am quite intrigued about reading challenges! Last year, I did a challenge over at Goodreads and did not follow through. This year, though I am back with a vengeance. See, I love to read, and despite reading a lot of books last year, I did not log it anywhere at all. My Goodreads account was basically…dead. In fact, my blogs were dead. I guess, I was just too lazy to update and to blog in the last couple of years since starting real work. But whatever the reason why my online persona became silent, it has decided to overtake […]
