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 […]
Moonlight Menage by Stephanie JulianDigital copy provided by Stephanie Julian PJV’s QUICKIE POV: A sexy tale with a paranormal twist in a very well crafted world of shapeshifters, gods, goddesses and ancient Etruscans. Moonlight Menage is the second book in the Lucani Lovers series created by Stephanie Julian. Following up Kiss of Moonlight, Moonlight Menage was entertaining, but I did like Kiss much better than Menage. REVIEW: Tira is an Etruscan witch, destined to slowly go insane […]

Who doesn’t want to immerse themselves in the bitter dreams of a dark future? To see things how they could be if we don’t shape up. First I was sucked in by Westerfeld, than I was blown away by Collins… and now Snyder has put the icing on a big dystopian cake with Inside Out. Inside Out is a fantastic addition to the trendy new dystop […]

With the release of the New Moon DVD…it is now time to start promoting Eclipse. The intensity of the Marketing of these films is quite inspiring for moi, but I’m a nerd like that. I wonder how they intend to keep up the intensity to keep the consumer’s fickle interest by the time Breaking Dawn is released. Considering filming hasn’t even started yet. Rumors are still flying that Breaking Dawn will be broken into two films, has anyone heard anything different? I guess they […]
World of Warcraft: Stormrage by Richard A. Knaak Hardcover novel provided by publisher. PJV’s QUICKIE POV: One page in PJ realized she was over her head and would not be able to give a credible review for this novel. Like the title states this is a World of Warcraft book, and has a lot of World of Warcraft lingo…therefor I was out of my league. So what did this reviewer do? I enlisted a WOW expert to give me a WOW worthy review. PJ would like to introduce Jerry, a co-worker of […]

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 […]
Meet Corinne Carol Anne, otherwise known as Cory. Cory is a sad, chubby, little goth girl. She’s also a bit on the white trash side of the fence and just happens to work the graveyard shift at a Chevron station. Cory, who absolutely hates herself, her life and her town, is not a very lovable character. She is rather on the pitiful side. After a few paragraphs of smack talking and descriptions of herself as a tough chickie…the book veers right into statements that only halfway make se […]
