That’s what HE said Thursday- January 29, 2015

Every Thursday we are hosting a meme called: That’s what HE said Thursday. For more info on what this meme is all about click here.   Julie’s Quote: “Kitten, you need to make a decision. Either we stay here and behave or we leave now and I promise you”—his voice dipped lower and the words fell against my lips—“if we leave, I won’t behave.” and “You’re not a woman,” he said finally. “You’re the Grim Reaper with red hair!” -Bones to Cat (Halfway to the Grave by: Jeaniene Frost) Yea, Bones is pretty damn awesome. I think I’m going to… Read more »

Guest Post: Karen Frances on overcoming her anxieties to become an author in charge of her own marketing machine

Guest Post: Karen Frances on overcoming her anxieties to become an author in charge of her own marketing machine

Guest Post: Karen Frances, Scottish author of He’s Captured My Heart (January 28th 2015) If you asked my friends for their opinions of me, I am sure they would have plenty to say: loving, quiet, sincere, happy, always smiling and laughing, helpful, caring, great mum to five kids. I am sure they would also use the words strong, independent and confident. On most of those, I would have to disagree. Yes, elements of the first sentence are true to a certain extent. My kids are my world and I love them all deeply. Yes I think I have done a… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Serial Addiction or OCD?

Chat Between Chapters: Serial Addiction or OCD?

 Once you start a series, are you compelled to read the entire series, even if you no longer really enjoy the books? In other words, are you suffering from Serial Addiction? or just plain old OCD?  Julie: Nope. I’m perfectly fine letting a series go if I’m not enjoying the books. Really, if a series is super duper long (i.e. more than 7 books), it is more likely that I’m going to call it a day with that series eventually. Call it short attention span or whatever, but I find long series that are ongoing and do not see an… Read more »

You don’t,” he growled in a tight voice. “I want to do things to you … things a clean, vanilla girl like you never dreamed of. Things that tool boyfriend of yours never came close to doing for you.” -Logan Mulvaney to Georgia Robinson (Wild (The Ivy Chronicles #3) by: Sophie Jordan) This was the cleanest quote I could find of Logan and Georgia.

Guest Post: Character Inspirations by Leigh Raines

Guest Post: Character Inspirations by Leigh Raines

What Inspired The Characters? by Leigh Raines In one sentence: The people in my own life who have affected me for better or worse. My college experience was a HUGE inspiration to me. I wouldn’t say entirely, because I took a lot of stuff from the post college years as well. The situations are similar but the people themselves had to be different because I love my friends dearly and wouldn’t do them dirty like that. There was the aspect of being a girl and living in a sorority house, the politics of it all. I met people unlike anyone… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Do you have a book you love to recommend?

Chat Between Chapters: Do you have a book you love to recommend?

 “Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” – John Green, The Fault In Our Stars Which book would this be for you?  Julie: Honestly,  I don’t push books on people very much. Plus, most of the people I talk about books with have already read the books I’ve read anyway. But, there are a few I do recommend if someone new to the bookish world asks for some. For a contemporary… Read more »

Every Thursday we are hosting a meme called: That’s what HE said Thursday. For more info on what this meme is all about click here. Rose’s Quote: “Did my heart love till now? forswear it, sight! For I ne’er saw true beauty till this night.” -Romeo to Juliet (Romeo and Juliet by: Williams Shakepeare) For the most part my cynical viewpoint keeps me from believing Romeo, but I like this line because it lets the audience know that Romeo is aware of how fickle he sounds first lamenting over one chic and then instantly falling for another. Boys.     Please leave… Read more »
