Book Bits: Stacia Kane, Jeaniene Frost, Kim Harrison, Keri Arthur & Lauren Dane

Book Bits: Stacia Kane, Jeaniene Frost, Kim Harrison, Keri Arthur & Lauren Dane We skipped Book Bits last week because it was Thanksgiving here in the States. I hope others had a lovely holiday. Mine involved more shopping than was probably necessary (though we skipped shopping late on Thanksgiving or early-morning Black Friday madness), seeing Daniel Craig in all his Bond-y goodness in IMAX, eating more than I should have and having a Downton Abbey binge with my mom. It was a good...

5 Heroes who make us see fireworks

5 Heroes who make us see fireworks It’s Independence Day in the United States. Typically, this is celebrated by eating foods cooked on a grill and enjoying fireworks. (And probably also complaining about how hot and/or sticky it is outside and trying to find the bug spray in your purse.) But this is Vampire Book Club. I can’t show you pretty explosions in the sky.
