PJV Quickie: I was pretty excited to get Blindfolded Innocence for review, but quickly found myself frustrated with the progression of the relationship and plot. Review: Julia Campbell is a young law student who has just broken off her wedding engagement and moved into a new apartment. She’s got a fresh start and a new job as an intern in a very prestigious law firm. The partner she is working for is a hard worker who demands long hours, and has warned her off the partner at the […]
It is almost here! Who can’t wait for the RT Convention in New Orleans? *raises hand* Are you going? If so, can’t wait to meet you. Both Patti and I are native New Orleanians and we’ve decided to share our love for the city, just in time for the RT Convention. Look out for maps, restaurant guides, pronunciation guides and much more in the month leading up to RT. The map above is from the French Quarter, just one section of the city. New Orleans is divided into areas, each with […]
OMG is this the end? It is! Le sigh. The end means it is time to share my series that I am a “Fool” for! Hang on…. Day 11: Which series are you a fool for? That you can reread over and over again and will always buy the next book, no matter how mental the author goes – or how strange the characters become? Time to spill your series love… In no particular order – here is the awesome… Tomorrow, When the War Began (Book 1) – Tomorrow, Se […]
Thank you for the interview Kristi Helvig, I’m excited to showcase a new science fiction, dystopian on parajunkee.com! BURN OUT looks very interesting, but the first thing that caught my eye was the comparison to Beth Revis and Lenore Appelhan’s series…both fan favorites of YA SciFi addicts, like myself. What do you think about the comparison? Well, I think it’s a compliment for sure! Those comparisons are from my editor, but I’ve read both Beth and Lenore’s work and lov […]

It is that time of year…tax time. Did you know as a blogger, if you make any money from your blog and you live in the U.S. you have to claim that money earned – but it also gives you the opportunity for deductions. Take this post in stride, I am not a tax professional, this is the type of stuff I hand over to my tax guy – but you can do this too! They don’t know unless you tell them and a lot of the time, bloggers have no clue that they can claim their blog. Or have to cl […]

Take one part ’70′s hard rock scene, add in romance, and horror and you have the Devil’s Metal by Karina Halle. To be honest, despite my Karina Halle fan status I was hesitant about reading the Devil’s Metal. For some reason it didn’t seem like something I would enjoy. Which is silly considering how much I love rock music from this era. (I am listening to Neil Young’s Decade right now as I type). Boy, was I wrong in thinking I wouldn’t enjoy The Devil […]
Welcome to Day 9 – Serious issues for readers that non-readers or light readers would think you are mental if you discussed them. Yeah this can get crazy… The movie poster as the book cover really really pisses me off. The fact that some of my best friends are characters in books The fact that I might have bigger crushes on romantic heroes…then my actual husband (don’t tell him this!) At least the romantic heroes don’t take me for granted […]
PJV Quickie: Sophie Jordan is a powerhouse author, everything this women produces I have really enjoyed. Especially her young adult titles. UNINVITED was no different, it was complex, exciting, emotional and it just made me want to talk about it. You can’t get any better. Review: The concept of this book made me pause. I have to admit that I wasn’t that intrigued with it. And now I’ll admit, my first impression was completely wrong. The story focuses on Davy, a high school seni […]
PJV Quickie: Pure Heat by M.L. Muchman was a high intensity read, much more then your standard romance novel. In fact, the author focused a lot of his attention on the fire-fighters and their lives, with the romance almost as a side thought. It was sexy at times, it was romantic, but overall it was a novel about firefighters with a bit of mystery thrown in for anxiety levels. Review: By the amount of information and attention to detail, I would have sworn that this book was written by an author […]
