What Does Kenny Rogers Have To Do With YA Paranormal?




Have you ever felt like you had been baited and hooked by a book series?  That is exactly how I felt about The Mystic Series.  I read book #1 in the series, Descension, and it was SO good.  I loved every single one of the characters and I couldn’t wait to give it a fantastic review, but before I did I started book #2, Impassion, and that review faded fast.

Is It or Isn't It?




To "plagiarize" means
  • to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
  • to use (another's production) without crediting the source
  • to commit literary theft
  • to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source¹
Maybe that’s a little harsh for the book I just finished… but it was what I was thinking most of the time I was reading.  It honestly wasn’t that the story was exactly the same, but the sentiments, dialog and descriptive passages just felt SO familiar.

Spring Break Reading





Over Spring Break I read a couple of new books.  Even though I’m not in school anymore having kids in school means that Spring Break still marks a significant change in our schedule… this year it meant vacation to see relatives and lots of good reading time in the car.
