Re: The Demigod Complex (3:34am February 22, 2020):

I love the premise of this one! Looking forward to reading
it :)

Re: Betraying the Billionaire (6:58pm December 21, 2019):

You and I had similar thoughts except I decided to mention
all my usual favorites in the intro and that select some in
categories I created LOL

Re: Chai Another Day (10:53am June 13, 2019):

Great series! Can't wait to read this one.

Re: Trial By Fire (5:39pm March 24, 2016):

I love that perspective! Now if only the general public
could get that through their heads.....

Re: Secret Sisters (7:53am January 16, 2016):

Miranda, you've never read one??? OMG, you HAVE to read one
of her books! And yes, great job, Netta!

Re: Asylum (10:00pm October 30, 2015):

When I was a kid, my brother and I were riding in the
back of a pickup truck (this was back in the days when
that was considered okay!). My parents were in the truck
driving us along a dark, forested area on some small road
in the middle of nowhere, SC. My brother and I have
overactive imaginations and swore we saw "tree people"
staring at us and banged loudly on the window and
demanded we all squeeze inside the truck so we'd be safe
from the "tree people". We still laugh about it to this

Re: The Summer Marked (3:56pm September 24, 2015):

Oh I'm definitely an end-peeker! I even read the end of the
Harry Potter series as I had to know who made it and who

Re: Waiting for Ethan (4:17pm September 15, 2015):

Oh I'm definitely an "end peeker" when it comes to books!

Re: Fudging the Books (3:45pm August 3, 2015):

I love to travel! My favorite place to travel is somewhere
new. This summer we explored Las Vegas and went to the
Grand Canyon. I also went on my first ghost tour in
Savannah, GA.

Re: Briar Queen (6:32am June 12, 2015):

I absolutely LOVE the Night and Nothing series!

Re: For Your Love (7:34am May 9, 2015):

How did I miss this one coming out? Love anything Beverly
Jenkins writes!

Re: Bittersweet (7:21pm April 6, 2015):

Love this series!

Re: Gideon (6:47am March 24, 2015):

I'm excited to hear about JERICHO!!

Re: The Perilous Journey of the Not-So-Innocuous Girl (8:05pm March 21, 2015):

Steampunk can be fun- especially seeing how the heroines
manage such adventures with their fancy dresses!

Re: The Dragon Conspiracy (12:55pm February 7, 2015):

I just recently read the short story in NIGHT SHIFT and have added a couple of your other books in my TBR pile as a result.

Re: Revenant (3:21pm December 19, 2014):

Love love LOVE Castiel! In fact, I love just about anyone on Supernatural as that still ranks as one of the best tv shows in that genre imo. And Hellboy... who can't help but love Hellboy just cause!

Re: Murder Of A Needled Knitter (7:56pm September 15, 2014):

Those 5 things are so very, very true!! I'm so sorry you couldn't find a way to put the Dooziers on a cruise- even the thought has me laughing like a loon. As for your question, I try to avoid hobby groups other than book clubs but yes, I've been in a book club with an individual that should be thankful the members didn't read a lot of mystery novels or I'm sure they'd have figured out a way to dispose of her permanently LOL!!!

Re: Zombified (12:34pm September 1, 2014):

I love vampires, shifters, and all sorts of other supernatural creatures... but a zombie? Oh this is one story I MUST read! Love your first paragraph of this blog as it hooked me.

Re: Going Down in Flames (8:06am July 11, 2014):

Love dragon stories and the comment about the oreos cracked me
up. Adding this one to my list to get.....

Re: Mirror X (8:03am July 11, 2014):

Okay, you got me intrigued... downloaded the book to my Kindle
just now!

Re: Vampire Trouble (8:02am July 11, 2014):

Adding this series to my ever growing list of books I need to

Re: Rebel (7:58am July 11, 2014):

Love sci fi/paranormal/romance blends! I've heard great things
about this series and own all the books- now I just need to
find time to read them!

Re: Darkwalker (6:05pm June 17, 2014):

Love the cover and can't wait to read the second book!

Re: The Strain (8:16pm March 11, 2014):

I'm so excited about this! LOVED LOVED LOVED the trilogy.

Re: The Promise (10:59am April 19, 2009):

Why do I read? That's almost like asking me why do I breathe?? I've been reading for as long as I can remember. My parents made sure I developed a love of reading. Anyone else old enough to remember the records that accompanied the children's books?? I had my own little record player and I played all of those little 45s and 33s to death!

Re: Turn Coat (7:04pm February 21, 2009):

What fun!I'm a huge fan of Jim Butcher so one day I hope to attend something like ConDFW....

Re: The Secret Life of Bees (11:16am February 8, 2009):

I usually try to read a book before seeing the movie. There are a few authors I prefer the movies to the books though, and John Grisham is one of those actually.
