Shifting Pride by Laura Diamond

Happy Release Day to my good friend, Laura Diamond. SHIFTING PRIDE is a great book. Now, I haven’t read a lot of books on shifters. But I’m surely interested now. I’ve read Laura’s short story, New Pride, and now, this one, SHIFTING PRIDE. It’s a full novel geared for the Young Adult. It’s got some steam, but not too much. Emotionally, it’s intense. I love how deep Laura got into the characters’ heads. And hearts. She painted fantastic word pictures that thrust me right into the story. The scenery and imagery was top notch. Nicely done, Laura Diamond. Click here[…]

Hush, Hush…..

So, I found a new author I adore.  It was touch and go for a minute there, but…..I’m in.  Book one was Hush, Hush: Book two was Crescendo: Book three was Silence:  Now, book one ROCKED. Nicely paced, learned about the characters….kinda fell in love with them.  Book two, TOTALLY different story. I nearly put down the book and abandoned the series. It was definitely the “sophomore slump” as they call it.  But….I pressed on because I liked the idea of the story. I enjoyed Becca’s writing style, for the most part. She left the ending hanging big time (flirted[…]

Weekending and Reviews…

Happy Weekending  I love that phrase. My good friend, Lori, says that a lot. It just makes me smile. Weekends are a time to unwind, whether your true weekend is Saturday and Sunday or not. For me, it’s not. I work in a bookstore…which means RETAIL HOURS. LOL So, the bulk of my hours are on Saturday and Sunday. But I get a couple days off during the weekdays so it’s all good. I still enjoy the weekends, though, because going to a job I love every single day….that just doesn’t feel like work. ~~~ As you well know by[…]
