wicked (the play)

There is good in Baltimore. There is culture and positivity. While that clearly has not been the focus the past week, it’s important people know that it does exist here. And while I’m not a Baltimore native, I hate for only the negativity to be highlighted when speaking about the city. So… I was pretty sure I was the last person on the eastern seaboard who hadn’t seen the play Wicked. Therefore, a couple of...

why are readers so angry with authors?

Let me start by putting it out there–I’m confused?!?! Said confusion was incited by the many posts I came across in reference to Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series. Readers/fans of this series are complaining about the fact that it’s been extended from 3 books to 5. WHY?!?! If you love a series, the writing, the characters–why are you flat-out angry that some of your most beloved heroes and heroines are having their lives extended by...

I was rewarded with a fun and quick read. Mindy...

Book Review: The Single Woman: Life, Love, And a Dash of Sass

I stumbled across The Single Woman, aka, Mandy Hale, on Twitter. While it’s the title of her 1st book, it’s also her moniker, website, Twitter handle, and then some. Selfishly, one of the reasons I purchased Hale’s book was because I wanted to see how she translated her blog–The Single Woman.net–into a book. What I didn’t expect was how much I would love the book–and not just because I’m single. There were so many quotes,...

Book Review: Dust

It is no secret that I love a good book series (a friend of mine pointed this out while we were lounging in Tampa a few weeks ago visiting another friend). One of my all-time favorites is Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta series. The characters are so well written; I love how they have evolved over the years, along with the story lines. We’ve seen one character, Lucy, Kay’s niece, literally grow up throughout the...
