S. Jae-Jones, called JJ, is an artist, an adrenaline junkie, and the NYT bestselling author of Wintersong.

Born and raised in sunny Los Angeles, she lived in New York City for ten years before relocating down to Dixie, where she is comfortably growing fat on grits and barbecue. When not writing, she can be found rock-climbing, skydiving, taking photographs, drawing pictures, and dragging her dog on ridiculously long hikes.

REVIEW POLICY: I'm really only here to organize my reading. I only give ratings if they are 4 stars or higher, mostly as a note to myself to round up my year-end personal Best Of lists.

FRIENDING POLICY: I friend/follow on a selective basis that looks an awful lot like whim.

“Life,” he said softly, “is more than flesh. Your body is a candle, your soul the flame. The longer I burn the candle...” He did not finish.
“A candle unused is nothing but wax and wick,” I said.“I would rather light the flame, knowing it will go out than sit forever in darkness.”
S. Jae-Jones, Wintersong

“What’s the use of running, if we are on the wrong road.”
S. Jae-Jones, Wintersong

“There is music in your soul. A wild and untamed sort
of music that speaks to me. It defies all the rules and laws you humans set upon it. It grows from inside you, and I have a wish to set that music free.”
S. Jae-Jones, Wintersong

August BOTM - Which Genre shall we read?


To make things a little more interesting we have decided to change the format for our BOTM recommendations.

We have decided to try a poll to select a specific Genre. Within each genre will be 3 selected books recommendations. You can read 1 or all 3 and there will be book discussions available for each of these books.

Going forward we will open up the genre selections for member suggestions.

“Intelligent, unscrupulous, determined, and capable of seeing a man strangled without changing color.”
Henry James, The American

“This is not a novel to be tossed aside lightly. It should be thrown with great force.”
