Group Read returns! Help us pick the July read

Group Read returns! Help us pick the July read The VBC Group Read went on hiatus in June. We’re revamping the process a bit.

To make the most of the group read, the VBC associate reviewers (Candace and Jo) will be helping me out now. We’ll have weekly discussion questions over at the VBC Goodreads’...

Book Bits: Richelle Mead, Jeri Smith-Ready, Kim Harrison and LOTS of excerpts There were so many great new releases this week, my head is still spinning.

Luckily the ladies were willing to fill us in on the new series, the shocking parts of the book,...

Currently Reading: Crusade
