September 26, 2018

We’ve chatted about this subject off and on in the comments over the years, and I couldn’t help but post this today. It’s a subject near and dear to my heart (in real life… and in book life). Done right, it’s what makes the characters real. Done right in real life, it helps forge that [...]

Reader Confession… If new releases were put on hold for 3 months, which books (that you already own) would you catch up on?

August 29, 2018

Tasha started this one and oh how I LOVE this game!!! This question kind of reminds me of my “hurricane days” from last year. No electricity for a week, and nothing to do… nothing to cook, nothing to clean… just time to read. I had a make-shift pile of paper books I had been meaning [...]

January 3, 2018

Tee hee!! I can relate to this confession!!! Hanne confesses: For some reason I just remembered I used to secretly read my mother’s romance (and my dad’s western) paperbacks back in the 80’s when I was way too young for them.

Reader Confession – Who do you cast as the female heroine?

November 29, 2017

Reader Confession – Wanna see my first reading nook?

November 23, 2017
