Chat Between Chapters: Series you can’t or won’t finish

Chat Between Chapters: Series you can’t or won’t finish

 Let’s chat about those series we just have to quit on. Why is that? Which series?  Julie:   We chatted earlier about when to break up with a series or author, so now we’re chatting about which such series we have broken up with. I feel like this post applies to a long series, not like a trilogy that we only read the first book from. But an extended series we read quite a few and then gave it up. That’s what we’re chatting about here. One such series for me is the Love At Stake series. I loved quite… Read more »

Chat About Covers: Kaitlin’s Tale

Chat About Covers: Kaitlin’s Tale

  We’re starting a new feature here on Chapter Break called Chat About Covers. ‘Cause you know we all judge books by covers, whether we admit it or not. We judge the style, the color and font choices, and just the overall look. That might not keep us from reading the book, but we do still judge.   Well, I haven’t been a huge fan of any covers in this series. The series and spin-off books I have enjoyed, but the covers have all been kinda odd. Why is she running through a book? Is it supposed to be a… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Fictional cars we’d love to drive

Chat Between Chapters: Fictional cars we’d love to drive

 Let’s chat about the fictional cars we’d love to drive.  Julie: Check it out, what a fun topic. Even Wikipedia has an article on fictional cars! And there’s this other article on the 50 coolest fictional cars. I would totally LOVE to drive, er, technically that isn’t the right word. But the flying car from Harry Potter. I mean, wouldn’t you? Skip right over traffic. yes, please. Also, I mean, the time machine. Because DUH. And a little more obscure and bookish is the caddy called Mariah from Out of the Easy. Now that sounded like a nice ride.     … Read more »

Quarterly Topic: March 2017/April 2017: Top books on my shelf the longest that I haven’t read       Julie’s Challenge Update: I started book blogging in 2013, but by then I had already become a book hoarder. It just got even worse after that point. Looking at my “soon to be read” shelf on Goodreads gives me heartburn. So, top books shelved that I collected prior to 2013: I was on a crime kick for a… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Characters we want to Throttle

Chat Between Chapters: Characters we want to Throttle

  You know there are some characters out there we just want to throttle. Let’s chat about them.  Julie: You know who I really want to throttle? Anastasia of Fifty Shades shame… er.. fame. What in the world is the thinking? Sure, in the end things turn out well for her, but the torment to get there? Shaking my head at her.   Lynn: I totally agree with Julie about Ana. She is definitely not a favorite character for me! I’m planning on throttling Zoe Sage from the Bloodlines series. And heck, the rest of the Alchemists while we are at… Read more »

Just randomly hanging… Read more »

Chat Between Chapters: Characters who should have Ended up with Someone Else

 Let’s chat about those characters who should have ended up with someone else. What ship should have sank? Who did someone end up with by mistake, in our opinion?  Julie: I’m gonna have to go with Abby and Travis on this one, from . Those two… are a disaster. The whole story is a mess. They do not need to be together. But that’s gonna be my unpopular opinion.   Lynn: Hah! Julie, that’s a good one! I’m afraid my selection is going to be equally unpopular. I’m going with Four and Tris from . I really think Four loved… Read more »
