Warrior and the Wanderer

Warrior and the Wanderer

My Review Warrior and the Wanderer is the first book by Elizabeth Holcombe that I have read and, although it is a genre that I don’t read much of, I enjoyed it more than I had anticipated.  It is historical romance, with a nice bit of time travel, and it made for a really fun […]

The Truth About Jack

The Truth About Jack
Posted 13 April 2015 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review The Truth About Jack is the latest from Jody Gehrman, author of the Audrey’s Guide books.  It is told from the altering points of view of Jack and Dakota, two teenagers with very different voices. The author is great at creating complex characters, characters with their own stories and issues and little quirks.  There were many […]

My Review I love this Something to Celebrate series!  The first book, Ivy Entwined, introduced us to a small town in central New York, Celebration.  This latest book, Permanent Ink, has many of the characters from the first book that I loved, as well as some new faces to Celebration.  I can’t deny that as a inked and steeled […]

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse

White Trash Zombie Apocalypse
Posted 7 May 2014 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review I can’t get enough of this series!  I love Angel, our white trash zombie.  I love everything about her as a character.  She’s fantastically flawed, fantastically damaged, and fantastically honest and true to herself. Marcus, Marcus, Marcus.  The on-again, off-again love interest.  Sometimes I love him, sometimes he annoys me.  In the first […]

Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues

Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues

My Review Hands down, Angel Crawford is one of the most unique protagonists I have ever read.  She is so incredibly flawed, yet true to herself, that I cannot help but love her.  She is smarter than she gives herself credit for, clearly a product of a lifetime of being told that she is a […]

My Life as a White Trash Zombie

My Life as a White Trash Zombie
Posted 7 May 2014 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review I absolutely love this book!  It is irreverent, gritty, raw, and yet filled with characters that are still sympathetic.  The main character isn’t just flawed… she is damaged.  Yet, even with all of that, there is a lot of snarky humor that I would not have not expected. In a weird way, this […]

The Killer Poet’s Guide to Immortality

The Killer Poet’s Guide to Immortality

My Review The Killer Poet’s Guide to Immortality is in a word… INSANE!  A.B. Bard is not only the author of this highly unusual book, but is the fictional main character, a man who wants his poetry to be read and loved by all.  So he takes a unique approach to promoting his art, leaving pieces […]

She’s the Boss

She’s the Boss
Posted 27 December 2012 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review She’s the Boss is a “sort of” sequel to Confessions of a Call Center Gal, and, although I encourage reading the first, it can easily be read on it’s own.  I loved the first book and I think this one was even better!  Totally irreverant, refreshingly honest and real, Karsynn is absolutely perfect as the lead […]

My Sparkling Misfortune

My Sparkling Misfortune
Posted 16 October 2011 by Kim in Book Review / 0 Comments

My Review My Sparkling Misfortune is the first in the Lakeland Knight series, and is a refreshing take on the fantasy and magic genre.  Instead of being told as a hero’s tale, it is the tale of a would-be villain.  Despite his “villain” status, Lord Arkus is a likeable character around whom the story is told.  Without […]

Confessions of a Call Center Gal

Confessions of a Call Center Gal
Posted 1 September 2011 by Kim in Book Review / 2 Comments

My Review Confessions of a Call Center Gal is the debut novel of author Lisa Lim, and it is a fantastic start to what I hope is a long line of books.  I loved just about everything about this book!  I was hooked from the very beginning and just couldn’t put it down.  The book […]
