The news headlines are all abuzz about a local st […]
Sometimes when I do these New Release posts, I have trouble with the book images, they show up in the dashboard but will malfunction when I post. This happened again this time, which is my explanation for half images, half those amazon link+image promos. I apologize for those, I’m not pushing the associates, it was just the only image that shows up. All links and images take you to amazon.com. Her Vampire Husband by Michele Hauf Releases April 1 2010 She may resist his bite, but she can […]

Being the heathen that I am, I have decided to celebrate reaching 666 followers with a giveaway. Dante, Inferno Canto V, excerpt Now the woeful notes begin to make themselves heard; now am Icome where much lamentation smites me. I had come into a placemute of all light, that bellows as the sea does in a tempest, ifit be combated by opposing winds. The infernal hurricane thatnever rests carries along the spirits in its rapine; whirling andsmiting it molests them. When they arrive before its rushi […]
The Iron King by Julie KagawaDownloaded to my kindle for the blogwithbite.com group review. PJV’s QUICKIE POV: I was at a breaking point when it came to YA faerie novels. Had enough. But I was pretty resigned to the fact that The Iron King was going to be the BWB YA pick…this book has been pretty popular among the bloggers of late. There is a reason for it’s popularity. This is the best YA faerie novel that I have read, hands down. Gripping – check. Tough – check. S […]

On first hearing of the the Twilight movie, of course I had to Google my way into more info concerning potential cast. I had been totally behind Meyer’s pick on Jacob as posted on her web site, Steven Straight (because of his role as Caleb from the Covenant) was whom I had imagine as Jacob. When it was released that Taylor Lautner – a Disney kiddie – was to play Jacob. Well, I wasn’t too thrilled. But – and what big but – after seeing these i […]

I have been playing around in iMovie today (yes I am a total nerd with nothing to do on a Saturday – actually my little girl had flu like systems – so in complete mom panic I assumed it was H1N1 and rushed her to the urgent care clinic – doesn’t have any piggy symptoms but it might be strep – Fun Fun Fun!) and I’ve created a commercial to my blog! Whoo Hooo! Thought I would share.
‘Specials’, is the third book in the Uglies series and wraps up the story of Tally Youngblood. Mr. Westerfeld has done a wonderful job with this series and I was very pleased with all three of his books (Uglies, Pretties, Specials). For YA novels they possessed a depth that I haven’t experienced with other newer authors. Mr. Westerfeld’s commitment to his writing, characters and plot had me categorizing him with other great authors that I love as a child such as CS Lewis […]
This book had been on my recommended list for a long time, but I usually only pick up a YA novel if comes highly recommended from a friend. I came across an advert offering the ebook of Uglies for download and also free. It was a great marketing tactic, because I am definitely buying the rest of the series and probably the other books that this author has written. Uglies was a wonderful book, set in a believable and well thought out world. Tally Youngblood, the protagonist, is not exactly the mo […]
