Why Halloween Creeps Me Out

I. Just. Can’t. Do. It.  I don’t know why.  Shapeshifters, no problem.  Werewolves, who cares.  Vampires, cool.  Just don’t ask me to have anything to do with GHOSTS!

Not All Books Are Great

For those of you who don’t own a Kindle let me fill you in a little before I start my rant.  In the Kindle you can make folders (I like to think of them as bookshelves that I carry around in my purse) to organize your books.  
In my Kindle I have many different “bookshelves” with many different names.  As you might guess, “Paranormal” is the largest boasting well over 90 books.  Sadly, the smallest is “Classics” which holds only 3.

Beguiling Bridget


The ton (pronounced t┼Źne, for those American’s who might wonder, like I did, why they would name the High Society of England after a large measurement of weight).  Seldom has a set of people so inspired the literary world.  From Jane Austen, who actually lived during the period of George IV reign and knew firsthand about them, to all sorts of modern romance writers who only pretend to know the finer details of the time.

The Cuckoo's Calling


Cormoran Strike:  Ex-military, somewhat rough around the edges, no holds barred, private detective.  New concept?  Not really.  Well written?  Absolutely.  Completely can’t-put-it-down gripping?  Ummm…

Empath vs. Parched


In the last couple of days I read 2 books and I honestly didn’t realize that either one of them was going to be a vampire story.  See, a while back I bought about 6 books at once that were all on sale on Amazon (FREE—one of my favorite things… cue Sound of Music song…) and by the time I got around to reading them I really couldn’t remember what each one was about.  I did remember a little about each of them, just not the vampire part.
