Closing Time . . .

Posted December 31, 2017 by Jennifer in Misc | | 20 Comments

 

After some thoughtful consideration (like two years), I’ve decided to transition back to a regular reader. With 6 years of book blogging under my belt, it’s time to move on. I found a whole new world and friends in the book blogging world.  You ladies (and gentlemen) are the shit!

I will continue to read and review on Goodreads. I will also remain active on Twitter (probably more so now that I will have more time). The Facebook page will still be around for a while too. I follow tons of authors and other bloggers on Facebook so I like to share their posts and news. Lately I’m more active on Instagram (because a picture is faster than a blog post).

Don’t be surprised if you get more comments on your blog posts from me. I’ll have to stay connected as a commenter.

It’s been a pleasure being here to talk about books in past 6 years. Thank you for stopping by my little corner of the book blogging world. BIG THANK YOU to my co-blogger Jonetta and reviewers Anne and Amanda. You ladies have been fun to work with and I will keep in touch online and through email.

 

Goodbye is not the end.

“Parting is such sweet sorrow that I shall say goodnight till it be morrow.”
― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

“You get use to someone—start to like them, even—and they leave. In the end, everyone leaves.”
― Rachel Ward, Numbers

“No more words. We know them all, all the words that should not be said. But you have made my world more perfect.”
― Terry Pratchett, Nation

“You’re leaving me, Rainbow Girl.”
― Karen Marie Moning, Dreamfever


 

Five years ago, I answered a request from Jennifer for a full time reviewer and everything changed. I’m thankful for the opportunity she gave me and her unending generosity in sharing this wonderful space. I couldn’t have dreamed up a better partner and I’ll be forever grateful. And, thanks to all of her faithful friends and followers for accepting me here.   — Jonetta

 

 


Audible Romance Package

Audible Romance Package

Posted December 30, 2017 by Jennifer in Misc | 5 Comments

  **I was approached by Audible to try the package for free for 3 months.**   I’ve been using Audible’s Romance Package for about 2 months now, the first month was the free trail offered to everyone. Mid way through that month I was contacted by Audible to try the package for 3 months. I took them up on it because I felt like I needed more than a month to see if it was a package I would use. I have a Gold Membership (12 months credits at one time) so if I were to continue the package after my free trial it would only cost me $6.95 a month.  (It’s $14.95 if you’re not a member) My thoughts so far: PROS: Cheap way […]

Friend Request by Laura Marshall

Friend Request by Laura Marshall

Posted December 26, 2017 by Jonetta in Book Review | 0 Comments

    Louise Williams is a divorced mother who works from home as a freelance interior designer. She doesn’t have a lot of friends and devotes much of her life to 4-year old son Henry, living vicariously through the pictures and posts of her Facebook friends. Life’s fairly uneventful until she receives a friend request from Maria Weston, a girl from her high school days…she’s also been presumed dead for over 25 years. And, Louise has lived with the guilt of her role in what may have happened to Maria that fateful night she disappeared.   The story transitions between present day and 1989, that pivotal year when Louise’s life changed radically. Things lead to an upcoming high school reunion as the events of the […]
