I switched from Blogger to WordPress in 2006/2007. I wish that this book would have been around then, as I would have loved to have been able to tweak my blog on my own. As it was, I ended up hiring someone to create a theme for me, which wasn't chea...more

Cop Town steps away from the ongoing series and characters from Slaughter's other books and takes us back to Atlanta in 1974. The police force was forced to allow women to join, though they were certainly not welcomed with open arms. The story is gri...more

I have to admit, I started reading this right after finishing one of Allison Brennan's books and for a moment, I thought I was reading another Allison Brennan (the whole Sean thing.)

I really liked this story; I think that it was definitely even more...more

Officially, the character of Maxine (Max) Revere is introduced in this Kindle single, but I read Notorious first. The single is a great appetizer, though this particular story has nothing to do with the events in Notorious, the full-length novel that...more

I'm so glad that Allison Brennan has introduced a new character, Maxine (Max) Revere. I actually think that this was one of Brennan's best books to date.

I had high hopes for this book, but I'm so happy that I didn't have to pay for it. There are some valuable insights in here, but as another reviewer said, the layout and the way the information is organized and presented is terrible. Very few people...more

I was very excited to read this book, as I completely agree with the premise: That kids today are over-scheduled, over-managed and over-protected. Many parents, with great intentions, have managed to turn their kids into people who feel that they are...more

This is what, the 15th? Hollows book, but Kim Harrison has managed to keep the series fresh almost all of the way through. This book definitely does not disappoint and while I am sad that this is the next-to-last book, it's better to let it go than t...more

This is the first book by Sue Monk Kidd that I've read. I normally avoid any Oprah book picks, because I'm not a fan, but I am glad that I took a chance on this one.

The Invention of Wings follows the events in the lives of two women: Hetty "Handful"...more
