Defiance – Mini Review

As I watched the second episode, I kept thinking the show would be better if Nolan and Irisa were just salvagers trying to make their way to the beaches of Antarctica. Maybe picking up characters along the way. Or maybe I’m just desperately wanting it to be more like Firefly.

Arch left standing, but nothing else. Easy access all around for alien invasion.

I have too many unanswered questions. Like, Continue reading

Revolution Review

Revolution is a new scifi series on NBC. The pilot episode aired last Monday at 10/9c. If you’ve not heard of it, or didn’t see it you can check out the trailer here or watch the pilot here.

In short, all the power in the world has gone out – even batteries. Fifteen years later, there are small “hamlets” where people have banded together to survive. Continue reading

Review: Ladybugs and Fireflies by Cheryl Alldredge

Ladybugs and FirefliesLadybugs and Fireflies by Cheryl Alldredge

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Feisty fraud investigator Callie Roberts isn’t looking for a knight in shining armor to rescue her. The last thing she needs is to be distracted by a man, especially when he’s the powerful New York attorney in town to represent the man her dream client has hired her to investigate. With a past full of heartache, will Callie ever allow herself to believe happily-ever-after really can come true?

I loved Taylor and Callie! And the ending was so cool! I didn’t see that coming. 🙂 There were a few minor typos and Taylor said a couple of things that I thought were a little un-alpha male, but none of that detracted from this great read. Once I started this short novel, I couldn’t put it down. The author did a superb job of describing the town and people, creating a perfect movie in my mind. I’d definitely recommend Ladybugs and Fireflies to others.

Thank You, Mary Jo Putney

On the off-chance the world as we know it comes to an end at 6p.m. this evening, I just want to thank you, Miss Mary Jo, for writing a story that was one of the best reads of my life.  I finished Silk and Secrets yesterday and can’t quit thinking about the characters.  I was really looking forward to starting Silk and Shadows, but I fear I won’t have time to read the whole thing before the apocalypse deadline.  However, I’m starting it and will read until whichever end comes first. 😉

Reading: Her Ladyship’s Companion

I love how Evangeline Collins writes!  I think I picked up this book at the 2010 RWA National Conference, but I’m not sure.  I brought home at least two dozen books and accumulate hords of romance novels from friends, book stores, and library sales so it’s really hard to say exactly from whence it came.  Maybe it was hidden in the depths of my goody bag from the Southern Lights Conference.  However it arrived in my house, I’m thrilled to have lifted it from one of my TBR stacks.

Hot Read Alert!

What Happens in London, by Julia Quinn is excellent!  I’m half-way through and find it extremely difficult to put down.  If you don’t have a copy, run–don’t walk–to your nearest bookstore and buy it.  It’s well-worth whatever it costs!  If you happen to know me, I’ll lend you my copy. 🙂

(And if you don’t agree that it’s an awesome story, I’m sticking my fingers in my ears so I can’t hear you (or covering my eyes so I can’t read your bad review)!)  😛

Valerie and Rita will, of course, answer any questions that may straggle in–but only in their “free” time.  As agented authors, I can only imagine how carefully they’ll have to parcel out their time in the future.  🙂

Happy writing, all!  Thanks for stopping by!
