Contest Roundup: Vampires, werewolves and Halloween

Contest Roundup: Vampires, werewolves and Halloween Before we get into all the giveaway goodness, we wanted to say sorry for being a bit MIA earlier this week. We were out of town for family stuff, then caught some sort of bug at the airport. Still feeling crummy, but not enough to keep us from reading and digging up excellent giveaways from our blogger friends. Suzanne Johnson is giving away two just-released books filled with vampire goodness: P.C....

Waiting on Wednesday: Ghost Town (Morganville Vampires #9) by Rachel Caine

I like Rachel Caine’s world-building and the way she loves to make things very difficult for her characters. That isn’t going to stop with the ninth book in her Morganville Vampires series Ghost Town. When I talked with Caine a few weeks ago she told me how excited she was for this release. She’s been releasing books for nearly 20 years, but this is her first hardcover. Pretty awesome. (And about time,...

Heather Brewer Book Signing & GIVEAWAY

Heather Brewer Book Signing & GIVEAWAY Last night the entertaining Heather Brewer stopped in at my local Borders store for a book signing. This last Tuesday the final book in her Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series, Twelfth Grade Kills, was released. Her teen series does great things by merging, as she put it, the things she knows (how it feels to be bullied and vampires). It was great to see her behind that podium. Coming from a small town (her...

Review: Glass Houses & Dead Girls’ Dance (Morganville Vampires 1 & 2)

Review: Glass Houses & Dead Girls’ Dance (Morganville Vampires 1 & 2) Instead of splitting things up, I am reviewing the first two Morganville Vampires novels together. This isn’t just for simplicity’s sake (though, that’s nice, too). Looking at the first book alone might do a disservice to a promising series. Glass Houses isn’t bad at all, but the majority of the book is world building. Whereas, with Dead Girls’ Dance we get really see these characters move forward and...

Currently Reading: Glass House (Morganville Vampires #1)

Currently Reading: Glass House (Morganville Vampires #1) I’m taking a breather before continuing on the emotional rollercoaster that is the latter half of Richelle Mead’s Georgina Kincaid series. Last night I started the first Morganville Vampires novel, Glass House. A few chapters in I was hooked, and would have devoured the whole thing had my husband not come home from work. Expect a review next week. On the to-read pile front, I just ordered The Dead-Tossed...
