Two bloggers have done the hard work for...

Dual Review: Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris (Sookie Stackhouse #11) I’ve been a long-time fan of Charlaine Harris’ Southern Vampire Mysteries (a.k.a. the Sookie Stackhouse novels). And while I now picture Alexander Skarsgard as Eric thanks to True Blood, I’m still eager to see what’s coming next for the waitress from Bon Temps.

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...
