A Bollywood Affair by Sonali Dev

A Bollywood Affair by Sonali Dev

Hidey Ho, Bookworms! I’m a bit of an impulse shopper when it comes to books on sale. I mean, a friend tweets that something they loved is on sale for $1.99 and I am THERE. Lightening quick one-click purchase. At least, I was. I try to be a little more careful these days, because I kind of accidentally purchased a romance novel on my company’s Amazon account. WHOOPS! Luckily, my bosses… Read more »

What I Love/Hate About Romances in Books

What I Love/Hate About Romances in Books

Hello Bookworms! Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is a great topic, and perfectly appropriate for Valentine’s week. The ladies of The Broke and the Bookish have challenged us to list what we love and/or hate about romance in books. Hoooo boy, I’m excited about this one! I’m a softy, really I am. I do love romance in books. However, I can be a little picky about it. I’m going to start… Read more »

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion!!!

Oh Hey Bookworms! It’s been FOREVER, hasn’t it? I know, I was off merry making and being lazy but I’m BACK and I’m pretty stoked to discuss today’s book. Remember last year when we read The Rosie Project (review) as a crew through The Fellowship of the Worms? There’s a sequel! And I read it! Eeeep! If you haven’t read The Rosie Project, stop reading right here because the whole premise… Read more »

The Night Garden by Lisa Van Allen

The Night Garden by Lisa Van Allen

Greetings Bookworms! The weather is changing and it’s making me miss my flowers already. I still have mums out, but it’s not the saaaaaaaame. Shortly after having to pull out my summer annuals, I was perusing NetGalley (a dangerous pastime under the best of circumstances) and ran across The Night Garden by Lisa Van Allen. I saw comparisons to Sarah Addison Allen and Alice Hoffman and simply could not help… Read more »

Pirate Booty! (The Windflower by Laura London)

Pirate Booty! (The Windflower by Laura London)

Ahoy, Bookworms! Who’s up for a little romance on the high seas? You’re not? Well, TOO BAD! A few weeks ago, I ran across an article on NPR books discussing the re-printing of a well loved romance novel from the early 1980s called The Windflower. After that kind of review, I couldn’t NOT read this, so  I downloaded a copy for myself. I must recommend reading this digitally as the… Read more »

The Mad Scientist’s Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke

The Mad Scientist’s Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke

G’day Bookworms, Remember back to Valentine’s Day when I crowd sourced a Top Ten Tuesday list of bloggers’ favorite romances? One of the suggestions that came from Sarah of Sarah Says Read was for The Mad Scientist’s Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clare. I made a mental note to give it a whirl, and not long afterward it showed up as a Kindle daily deal, so I snapped it up. It’s… Read more »

Adé by Rebecca Walker

Adé by Rebecca Walker

Greetings, Bookworms! I’m not immune to peer pressure, but you already knew that. I kept seeing Adé by Rebecca Walker around the blogoshpere and I simply had to give it a try. I read one of Rebecca Walker’s non fiction books (Baby Love) way back before I started blogging, so I had to see what all the hubbub was about. The main character and her best friend decide to take… Read more »

Lost and Found by Chris Van Hakes

Lost and Found by Chris Van Hakes

Salutations Bookworms, Most of the time when I pick up a book, the author is a faceless figure to me. I’m rarely up to speed with the goings on of the literary community, and I pick up a lot of books by authors who are new to me. Half the time I don’t even know if the author is a male or female, what with the use of initials and… Read more »
