Book Bits: Downside Ghosts and Bloodlines excerpts, Sookie’s finale, Hollows Insider and Contest Roundup

Book Bits: Downside Ghosts and Bloodlines excerpts, Sookie’s finale, Hollows Insider and Contest Roundup Sorry for the lack of post yesterday. I have a few reviews to get done for y’all, but I’m recovering from a concussion. (No, I don’t have a cool story. I fainted. It’s boring and, yet, still totally scary. I’m fine. But it limited my computer time and creativity.) I’m officially on the mend, and expect to have all sorts of reviews, features and giveaways right around the...

Poll: Favorite ADULT novel love interest (Just start swooning now)

Poll: Favorite ADULT novel love interest (Just start swooning now) Well, damn. To say you guys liked the YA love interest poll would be a complete understatement (you can vote here). Heated debates over Russian God Dimitri from Vampire Academy and our snarky boy Jace from The Mortal Instruments laced the comments. Also, you really loved hating on Team Edward. As a matter of fact, to the commenter Emelia who left quite possibly my favorite comment ever, email me. I will...

Top 10 Swoon-Worthy Heroes (2010)

Top 10 Swoon-Worthy Heroes (2010) Our top books of 2010 was posted early enough to be able to use as a shopping list. That means we’re at the end of the year without a nice wrap-up list. Really, it’s a bit embarrassing. So, what do we have in store? A list we know several of you will feel the need to argue with in the comments. (We actually really love that, by the way.) TOP 10 SWOON-WORTHY HEROES In fairness, we’re using...

We’ve narrowed the list down to these gems. All the books on this list are ones we’ve told friends, family and random people at the bookstore about. These are the books we tell you are musts for your to-read piles. As a matter of fact, print it out and make it a...

Books that made you chant “No, no, no”

Books that made you chant “No, no, no” Yesterday a couple blog friends were talking about a book on Twitter. I caught the middle of the conversation focused on how Spaz P threw the damn book across the room. Being a reading masochist, I couldn’t help but ask what book. She and Nat (Wicked Lil Pixie) were chatting about the fantastic agony-inducing Zodiac series by Vicki Pettersson, specifically the fourth book City of Souls. Hearing that...

Excerpts from Stacia Kane’s Downside #4

In an effort to cheer herself and the other masses who have some sort of flu/cold/strep throat nonsense going on (myself included), Stacia Kane decided to tease us with a few lines from the fourth Downside novel yesterday afternoon. In case you missed her 2 p.m. tweets: “This was the one time she didn’t worry about how long she had, how he really felt, what she was going to do to fuck it all up....

Early Review: The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook

Early Review: The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook The Iron Duke (Iron Seas #1) Meljean Brook Published: Oct. 5, 2010 Purchase at: Book Depository or Amazon Rating (out of 5): 4.5 stars If we were to merge the alpha overtones of Gone With the Wind, the swagger of Sherlock Holmes, the post-catastrophic world of Downside and a bunch of microscopic machines, we would get The Iron Duke. (And, yes, it really is that awesome.) Rhys, known to all those other than...

Terrible Fever Support Group

Terrible Fever Support Group We knew this day would come. On the release day for Stacia Kane’s City of Ghosts, the third book in her Downside Ghosts series (review), we listed the early symptoms of Terrible Fever. The condition is a result of overwhelming love for or obsession with Terrible, an enforcer and love interest, in the series. In the weeks following City of Ghosts‘ release there has been a mass outbreak of...
