Book Review: Devon Delaney is a Dirty Liar

  This isn’t a new book. I realize that. But since I am new to book blogging, I have had to go back quite a few years to find books I’ve wanted to read. Which is part of the reason I have almost 1300 books on my TBR list. This one was published in 2007. And it really was a very fun read. It’s definitely a tween/middle-grade novel, and I didn’t really know that until I started reading, and at that point I sighed and was disappointed. I decided to forge ahead anyway. I’ve got no problem reading fantasy middle-grade more »

Book Review: Peace, Love, and Baby Ducks

  What do you get when you put a totally annoying protagonist (at least most of the time), a totally adorable (and desired by boys everywhere because of her giant rack) younger sister, some plastic friends, cute boys, and a prestigious Christian school together? You get a book full of total awesomeness and win. I could praise this novel forever and ever and it wouldn’t be enough. This book made me sad I was an only child and missed out on all that sisterly drama. I seriously wish I had had siblings now. And it’s not like it showed siblings more »

Quick Note

Posted April 24, 2011 by Kara in Uncategorized / 1 Comment

I just wanted to write a quick blog post to let you all know a couple of things. First, I will be reading Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut for the month of May. That’s the book that won my classic poll. I will read it throughout May and then write my review. It may take me awhile, because I don’t rush through classics. Sometimes because I don’t like them (LOL) and sometimes because I want to savor them. But either way, I will finish it and review it sometime during the month of May. Next thing: I had a LOT more »

Book Review: Spellbound

  Spellbound by Cara Lynn Schultz was a ridiculously fun read. I enjoyed the first 3/4 of the book a lot. I could hardly put it down, and I didn’t want to. Brendan was the perfect boyfriend. He was everything Edward Cullen never was. Hot, rich, and protective without being overbearing and bossy. And Emma, the protagonist was a strong girl, not a weakling like Bella. Their relationship and bonding was a lot of fun. The author is really great at writing sexual tension and in the scenes where they did kiss, she managed to make it steamy without being more »

Imaginative Discussions: Something That Needs to be Said

  Everyone that talks to me here and follows me on Twitter knows that I haven’t been a part of the book blogging world for long. I am still finding my place and where I fit in. And I am perfectly happy with that. But I am not a person to sit back and watch ridiculous bullsh*t go down and keep my mouth shut. That just isn’t me. One thing you can be sure of is that I will always be honest with my readers and my friends. And with the anonymity of the internet, I am shocked that there more »

Book Review: Learning to Fly

Quick review here, because this self-published short-story collection was only 66 pages long. I volunteered to read and review this for a friend of mine on twitter. I have to say that I really liked it! Horror, as you all know, is not my favorite genre. But I thought this 4-story collection was remarkably well-done. The first story was thought provoking and I think I would enjoy seeing this one expanded. It’s hard for me to give out any information without spoiling it for you. But I think it could be really good. I loved the swamp setting too. The more »
