The Author I’ve Read the Most (a Sort-of Top Ten Tuesday Post)

The Author I’ve Read the Most (a Sort-of Top Ten Tuesday Post)

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Top Ten Authors I’ve Read the Most But as I started getting this post ready and was putting together pictures of the books that my top author has written, I decided that I just wanted to focus on her. I’ve been reading Robin Hobb since I was in college. I read her Farseer Trilogy, and I was instantly in love. From then on, I was hooked. I have read seventeen books by Robin […]

Blackmail Boyfriend by Chris Cannon – Review

Blackmail Boyfriend by Chris Cannon – Review

This book just looked all sorts of adorable – I was in the mood for a light read, and that’s exactly what I got, so it was perfect! Haley wants a boyfriend, but her brothers are too overprotective and intimidating – no one wants to cross them, so they leave Haley alone. So, when Bryce mistakenly tells everyone that he and Haley hooked up (it was a different Haley – one who has a hulking […]

Do You Have a Fiction Addiction?

Do You Have a Fiction Addiction?

I’ve said before that my blog is aptly named. It’s called Feed Your Fiction Addiction for a reason. But I wonder sometimes, is it actually possible to be addicted to books? And can that be a bad thing? Just yesterday (after I’d already planned out this post), my thirteen-year-old son insisted that I spend way too much time reading, blogging and editing. Apparently, he’s been feeling ignored! Now, I did remind him that I do plenty […]

Summer Haikus by Stephanie Pajonas – Release Day Giveaway!

Summer Haikus by Stephanie Pajonas – Release Day Giveaway!

As most of you know, I’m a freelance editor as well as a blogger, and every once in a while I like to feature the books that I edit. I don’t do reviews for these books (that feels like a conflict of interest), but I DO love to help spread the word! This book has actually been mentioned on my blog a few times already, mostly because I adore this story (who wouldn’t fall for a […]

What You Left Behind by Jessica Verdi – Review & Giveaway

What You Left Behind by Jessica Verdi – Review & Giveaway

What You Left Behind gives us the unique perspective of a teenage single dad who is both adjusting to his new status as a father and mourning the loss of his girlfriend, who died so that their daughter Hope could be born. The book shows the difficulties and the sacrifices that have to be made in this type of situation – and it doesn’t sugar-coat the painful emotional consequences. What I LOVED: Ryden’s struggles. Ryden was NOT […]

Top Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read or Want to Read

Top Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read or Want to Read

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is: Top Ten Fairytale Retellings I’ve Read or Want to Read! I actually had a harder time with this than I thought I would because I found several fairy tale retellings that I’ve read that were just okay, and I didn’t really want to put them in a top ten list. So, unless I was going to list out multiple books in a series, I didn’t know if I could come up with […]

A Million Miles Away by Lara Avery – Review

A Million Miles Away by Lara Avery – Review

A Million Miles Away is a story about how loss affects us and how we sometimes try to hold on to the past and refuse to let go. This was the case for Kelsey, who couldn’t figure out how to move on from her twin sister’s death. Her parents chose a grief support group, but Kelsey didn’t want anything to do with that. But when Michelle’s boyfriend reaches out to her from Afghanistan, Kelsey can’t bring […]
