Book Bits: Gena Showalter, Donna Grant, Nicole Peeler, Vivi Andrews, Group Read & More

Book Bits: Gena Showalter, Donna Grant, Nicole Peeler, Vivi Andrews, Group Read & More I’m on the road again this week. Work has me spending a few days in New York City, and so far it’s treating me well. It’d be better with the husband, but still one of the cooler places to visit. My airplane read this time was Riveted by Meljean Brook. Yes, I will review it. Yes, I love getting wrapped up in the steampunk world and the romance. The humor of reading about airships while on...

October Group Read: Stray by Rachel Vincent

October Group Read: Stray by Rachel Vincent It was a close race this month for the group read pick, but Rachel Vincent’s Stray won by three votes. Regular VBC readers will know Vincent is one of my favorite authors. She has a knack for writing emotional stories that will both gut and thrill you, occasionally at the same time. Whether you’ve read her engaging YA Soul Screamers series or devoured her paranormal romance Unbound...

Poll: Pick the October group read

Poll: Pick the October group read Update: In the poll excitement, we left off important information. The poll closes at 11:59 p.m. EST Oct. 1. Sorry for any confusion. It’s almost October. That means it’s time for a new group read pick (and Halloween). You can still hit up the discussion threads about Nalini Singh’s Slave to Sensation or read my review of the paranormal romance if you’re on the border about reading...

Review: Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh (Psy-Changeling #1) Slave to Sensation (Psy/Changeling #1) Nalini Singh Published: 2006 (Berkley) Purchase at: Book Depository or Amazon Reviewed by: Chelsea Rating (out of 5): 4 stars Can someone please tell me why I didn’t start this series sooner? As a fan of the sexy/dangerous mixture of Nalini Singh’s Guild Hunter series, I should have known she’d offer a one, two punch in a straightforward paranormal...

September Group Read: Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh

September Group Read: Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh September is all about the sexy at VBC. After a week of voting, VBC readers selected Slave to Sensation for our September group read. It’s the first in Nalini Singh’s very hot paranormal romance Psy-Changeling series. We’ve reviewed some of her Guild Hunter books. I particularly loved Archangel’s Blade, but haven’t delved into her other popular series. That changes this...

Poll: Pick the September Group Read

Poll: Pick the September Group Read Has August flown by for anyone else? Maybe it was all the travel this month, but I can’t believe it’s time to vote for the September group read. We still have another week of chatting Biting Cold by Chloe Neill. There are discussion threads over at our Goodreads group and, if you haven’t started yet, my review may encourage you. Enough about this month’s book. On to the selections,...

Book Bits: Rachel Vincent, Meljean Brook, Jaye Wells, Biting Cold talk and Melissa Marr Short and sweet today because I’m on vacation. I’ll bring y’all back something nice! Oath Bound Cover and Blurb I can get a little bit fangirl over Rachel Vincent books. They tend to tie me up in knots. I’m excited to see we now have a cover and blurb for the third book in her Unbound series Oath Bound. (If you haven’t read the series, click over to my review of Blood Bound.)...

August Group Read: Biting Cold by Chloe Neill

August Group Read: Biting Cold by Chloe Neill After taking your suggestions and turning the poll over to the awesome VBC readers, we have an August group read. Prepare to rush to your local bookseller to buy Biting Cold by Chloe Neill (or just pre-order like the cool kids). This is the first time we’ve had a group read that comes out the month we’re reading it. That speaks to just how excited VBC readers are to find out if Merit and Ethan...

July Group Read: Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost

July Group Read: Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost As a general rule, our group read picks are not new releases. We like picking titles that are readily available in bookstores, internationally and in libraries. Once in a while, though, there is a book that almost every VBC reader leaps to buy on release day. So, am I surprised to see Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost take 60 percent of the vote in our July Group Read poll? Of course not. Once Burned is the...
