Book Bits: Richelle Mead, Michelle Rowen, Kim Harrison, Jenna Black & Lauren Dane We’ve gone too long without a proper Book Bits post. (Did you miss it?

It was a good...

Palate cleanser, anyone?

Palate cleanser, anyone? As an avid reader, I’ve been known to fall into a reading rut every now and then. Sometimes a great new book (hint hint) will put me back into book-devour mode. But it isn’t always about a rut. There are times when I find myself reading several books in a row with similar tone (dark, dark, dark) or with so much sexy I stop blushing when hitting something really graphic. When those things...
