Welcome one and all. Looking for a good book for friends? Family? Kids? Then come here or bring them yourself. Spread the word!
I read in a whole range of genres from science fiction and fantasy to crafting and children's books so there should be something for everyone here!
The point of this blog is to just put the word out concerning good books. As a bookseller for Barnes & Noble, we get to recommend books to our customers, often ending with happy readers. So I'm just doing here what I do at work; getting the word out on good books for people to enjoy.
New books are posted every Saturday, occasionally with a more in-depth Epinions review. Likewise, since I'm a music junkie, I include a little note about what I currently have playing in my playlist (don't worry, my music tastes range just as widely as my book lust).
From time to time, recommendations are punctuated by what I'm currently reading or what I've just finished, giving you even more insight into what we booksellers read.
So sit back, grab a cup of coffee and pluck out a book you'd like to read, because today begins my ever-lasting love affair with books.
I am an author, I sell books for a living, and I love music like there's no tomorrow. I've experienced much of this country, from forested hills of the East, to the golden plains of the Midwest, the sandy beaches of the Southeast, and the oh-so-majestic mountains of the Rockies. And when all else fails, eat chocolate.
I've been eager to get my hands on this one because I really wanted to see how this little trilogy wrapped up. I read this in just a couple of days, and it works. Alona and Will are trying to figure out what to do about the whole Lily situation, and as if that weren't enough, now there's some strange ghost haunting one of Alona's old friends. The problem there is that the ghost is claiming to be Alona. So many questions. So many problems. Not nearly enough answers. Sometimes I did wish Alona and Will would have had a bit better communication, and it never was quite explained just how a specific spirit had so much power, but all's well that ends well. It's a good trilogy with some fun ideas and if you're looking for something a bit different then it's a solid bet. Remember not to let the "ghost and the goth" label fool you - this isn't your classic hot girl hooks up with goth guy story at all. Not by a long shot. So go for it, and make sure you start with the first book, The Ghost and the Goth.
