Book Bits: Jeaniene Frost, J.R. Ward, Stacia Kane, Allison Pang, Jackie Kessler Guess what starts tomorrow, readers? Character love letters. And it’s going to be epic. We’ve lined up some stellar authors to share their heroes getting all mushy over the heroines, and we have bloggers stopping by throughout the month to profess their often hilarious, sometimes dirty love for their book boyfriends. Expect a letter to show up first thing tomorrow morning. Once Burned Cover...

Top 10 Swoon-Worthy Heroes (2011) Last year, I listed 10 of the most delicious heroes from novels published that year. You guys liked it quite a bit. As such, I bit my lip and narrowed down the giant list to give you the Top 10 Swoon-Worthy Heroes from 2011 novels. To make my life easier, I excluded YA novels here because you’re all going to get nasty in the comments. (It’s OK, we’re all friends here.) Also, if you need...

Allison Pang Q&A: A Sliver of Shadow, Phin the Unicorn, names and more When I saw a unicorn on the back cover of Allison Pang’s A Brush of Darkness, I though it wasn’t going to be dark enough for me. I was wrong. Not only is Allison’s series featuring fae brilliant and dark urban fantasy, I ended up adoring the miniature unicorn. I loved the book so much it made the VBC Best Books of 2011 list. Allison brings a clever plot, unique world, fascinating...

Help fashion the new, improved Recommendations page

Help fashion the new, improved Recommendations page After my mad gush-fest on Kristen Painter’s Blood Rights yesterday, I’m encouraged to move forward with an overhaul to the VBC recommendations page. I know you guys use it quite a bit, and I try to make sure it only has the best of the best. If it’s on that page, I’ll personally vouch that it rules. But I’d like to be able to showcase more books via our recommendations page....

February Recap! Reviews! Love letters! Piles of awesomeness! We’ve been considering starting a monthly newsletter. We know you don’t hit the blog every day, and playing catch-up can be a beast. (Just ask our Google Reader.) So, we’re doing a blog post trial run. We’re going to recap our February posts for you here. If you dig it, please hit the comments to say if you’d like us to continue doing so as a blog post, via email only or both....
