Release Day: Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine with Giveaway

Release Day: Ash and Quill by Rachel Caine with Giveaway

Posted July 11, 2017 by Anne in Book Review, Giveaway | 5 Comments

             Ash and Quill is the third book in the Great Library series.  I started this journey thanks to Ace Roc stars. I choose to continue.  The world and the characters are familiar and dear. This is not a stand-alone; one needs to read the series in order. The knowledge of the situation builds as it goes along. Tension filled me throughout this read. It’s exciting and interesting and uncertain. The suspense of what will happen is constant. It’s also frustrating, as each book ends after a particular situation,  but it’s still a sort of cliffhanger with not knowing if they will be safe or succeed on any of their goals. As with Paper and Fire, the ending throws our group into […]


Narrator Interview with Jo Raylan + Giveaway

Narrator Interview with Jo Raylan + Giveaway

Posted June 30, 2017 by Jennifer in Giveaway, Narrator Interviews | 2 Comments

  Last but not least! What a way to close out Audiobook Month, welcome Jo Raylan to The Book Nympho!   Can you walk us through your prep work for a narration project? Do you prepare any notes to help decide the tone and voice to give a character when there’s not a clear description of their voice in the novel (when they do not have a distinct accent)?   I’ll just confess that I don’t take notes – NOT that newer narrators shouldn’t, or that there isn’t value in the process. It’s just not how I internalize or work with the characters – or really anything I do (made college a tag challenging, heh…). Really, I just hear them in my head as I […]

Talking Between Reads (TBR): Top 5 Beach Listens

Talking Between Reads (TBR): Top 5 Beach Listens

Posted June 5, 2017 by Jennifer in Giveaway, Talking Between Reads | 7 Comments

Talking Between Reads (TBR) is a monthly discussion post where we talk about different topics from books to blogging and anything else we think you guys might enjoy. Stop by for new topics.   June signals two things to me. Summer and audiobook month. So why not put the two together?! You may have heard of the term “beach read” and like me you might have wondered what makes a book a “beach read”. When I looked the term up I found things like “easily digestible”, “happy endings”, “fun and fast to read”, etc. Some people might say a beach read is a fluffy read. I think of them as fun and entertaining. I’m not a huge fan of the beach (sand, hot, birds, other people’s kids) […]

Lightstruck by Liz Crowe: Review, Excerpt & Giveaway!

Posted May 31, 2017 by Jonetta in Blog Tour, Book Review, Giveaway | 6 Comments

    I said in my review of Tapped that I needed just a little bit more. Well, I got a lot more in this follow up story.   Ross Hoffman walked away from his relationship with Evelyn and Austin after realizing the impossibilities of having it work, especially with Evelyn being pregnant with his child and legally married to Austin. He escapes to a brewery in Boulder but cannot seem to forget Evelyn. When he is suddenly drawn back to Grand Rapids, he’s “lightstruck” by their new brewmaster, Elisa (Elle) Nagel, a fellow German who is completely opposite of his “type.”   Frankly, I loved the three-way relationship between Austin, Evelyn and Ross as Crowe created a fascinating situation between them so I was […]

                    I’m a big fan of Jennifer Estep’s Elemental Assassin series for many reasons. Strong likable heroine Really, what’s not to like about a heroine who kills the bad guys and is a great cook. Plus Gin is very loyal to her family and friends. Scene stealing secondary characters Gin is not the only character who is likable. Her gang of crime fighting friends and family brings more than just support to her life and the stories. Great villains Estep keeps cranking out fantastic bad guys. Snared the sixteenth book in the series as all of the above. I don’t know who Estep has kept me coming back each time. I guess because I know I’m going […]
