  • Don't go for your favorite book. THE CLOSEST.

Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich

I rolled the window down, climbed out Dukes of Hazzard style, and examined the damage. Some of the door was bashed in where I'd hit the light. I climbed back into the car and drove off the sidewalk.
"I got foam and squirrel hair stuck to me," Lula said. "I probably need a rabies shot or something."
"Yeah, " I said. "Problem is, I don't know whether to take you to a veterinarian or an upholsterer."

I know this is much more than I should have included, but I couldn't just stop at the little tidbit that was line 5 for this one! LMAO! I love Stephanie and Lula!

Our First Spotlight

I am going to try something new here. We have our group reading suggestions for every month this year; yet there are so many more series that we haven’t been able to cover. So, I think we will do some features. Once a week, or more often if I am up to it, we will feature an author, series, or book that Pamela or myself have read and feel it is worth getting the word out on. So that said let’s get started.

First Spotlight today is going to be Pamela Palmer’s Feral Warriors. Currently 4 books in the series with the 5th coming out February 22, 2011. Below are a few links to check them out.

Sorry kids, just nothing new to report. Have been rereading BDB for JR January so no knew reviews to write. There are only 11 days left so if you are reading BDB hurry. It's almost Frosty February time to break out your Night Huntress books and do some reading in preparation for the release of This Side of the Grave on February 22. Can hardly wait I need to get my copy reserved. At which point I will be purchasing all three of the Jane Jameson Nice Girl's book by Molly Harper for reading later this year. If you don't have them or haven't read them, I HIGHLY recommend you do. Anyway that is all for now. Keep reading. :-D
