Excerpt from The Hero of Ages

I am currently reading Brandon Sanderson’s The Hero of Ages. Yes, this is the third book in the Mistborn trilogy, and I haven’t read the first two books in the series. I just dived right into this world without knowing anything about it, but Sanderson does a good job at filling in the backstory so that the reader has some idea of what’s going on. 

Starting with Autism Awareness

October is Disabilities Awareness Month. In Canada, it is also Autism Awareness Month. And October 14 is Indie Author Day. With all of these things converging, I decided to highlight a book by an autistic author friend of mine: The ABCs of Autism Acceptance, written while Sparrow Rose Jones.

Excerpt from Every Crooked Nanny

My teaser this week is from Mary Kay Andrews’ Callahan Garrity Mysteries. I’ve read one book from this series before, but hadn’t read book 1 in the series, Every Crooked Nanny. I often read random books in the middle of a series…

Excerpt from The BFG

I’ve finished a few books in the past week, including one by a favourite author of mine, Mary Higgins Clark, but the one I had to highlight was Roald Dahl’s The BFG. BFG, for those of you who don’t know, stands for Big Friendly Giant. It has grown in popularity since being made into a movie by Steven Spielberg. This is such a fun read, filled with lots of scrumdiddlyumptious words! 

What makes P.D. Workman’s books so good

I have a few criteria for reading a book. Everyone has their own reasoning for picking a book out, whether it is the storyline or the characters. Let’s work with those two points.

Excerpt from Invisible by James Patterson

Here’s my newest James Patterson read. Invisible is about tracking down the worst serial killer of all time. In the beginning, Emmy Dockery is the only one who believes he even exists. Everyone thinks she has gone over the edge after the accidental death of her twin, but of course you and I know… Emmy is right…

Randy’s Review of She Wore Mourning

Zachary Goldman is a Private Investigator who is messed up. Add in a crazy ex-wife, and together they made one ugly recipe. The one thing Zachary can keep on track in his life is his work.

Well, that is up until now.

Randy’s five favourite characters

Here is another blog by my hubby, Randy!

P.D. Workman has written many books, and each time I think she can’t surprise me, she does. The characters she has brought to life stir emotions in me that I didn’t know I had.

Excerpt from Grave Peril

I just finished Grave Peril (The Dresden Files, Book 3) by Jim Butcher. A very fun read about a smart aleck Wizard fighting evil forces trying to take over the city. Something is stirring up trouble, and he needs to figure out what it is before it destroys him and his friends.
