Werewolves and Romance?

Who knew werewolves could be sexy? The paperback Werewolf in Manhattan by Vicki Lewis Thompson puts a whole new spin on steamy romances. The story unfolds as Emma Gavin, bestselling author, is being stalked by some crazy guy who claims he is a werewolf. Even though her novels are about werewolves, Emma doesn't really believe they exist. That is - until she meets one in person. Aidan Wallace just happens to be the wealthy and prominent Manhattan werewolf pack leader's son and heir. He pretends to be her bodyguard in order to get close to her. Why?

Back to School and Back to Non-Fiction

The first hints of fall are here: the chill in the early morning air, a few yellow leaves on trees in Lakeside Park, and kids heading back to school. While the kiddos may be dreading the end of summer break and the return to class, I love this time of year. I find myself reading more non-fiction as the days get longer and the leaves turn. Hints of fall just make me want to learn something new! Libraries often are called places of “lifelong learning.” What does that even mean?

A Book for People Who Liked Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

While reading The Informationist by Taylor Stevens I was struck by how this thriller has some of the same aspects of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I think people who enjoyed The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo would also enjoy The Informationist.

James Patterson does it again..

James Patterson has numerous fans out there, and I count myself as one of them. I just finished reading Now You See Her, one of his latest thrillers, written in collaboration with author Michael Ledwidge. What a perfect summer read. I read it in one day! Imagine being a young and carefree 18 year old. You are having the time of your life on spring break in Key West with your best friends, and then in an instant your entire life changes forever. That is exactly what happened to poor Jeanine.

  • Sudden Spin Causes New Appreciation for Reading

    I just had an inner ear infection which causes a spinning sensation, dizziness, loss of balance and nausea. I also found it hard to focus and concentrate and therefore hard to read. This episode made me appreciate being able to read. Reading is important to understanding your health and doing the right thing to get better. But even more, I missed reading fiction. Fiction is a part of my life and has been a part of every human’s life. Think of all of those children’s bedtime stories, ancient sagas and myth, campfire stories, novels, and adventure tales.

    Why do you read?

    There is no doubt about it – I LOVE TO READ. It doesn't matter if it is a book, a magazine, or newspaper; reading is my passion. For me, a perfect afternoon is sitting at home on my porch, book in hand, and dog at my side (and no mosquitoes, of course). Someone asked me the other day why I read so much. I thought for a bit, and then replied "because I love to learn". Even though the majority of what I read is fiction, I still learn something. For example, I just finished reading the paperback book Home Again by Mariah Stewart. The setting is in St.

    Mischief Managed.

    The last Harry Potter movie is being released today and I find myself feeling strangely sad. As someone who doesn’t even particularly love the movies, this is a pretty odd sensation.

    I started reading Harry Potter in 1999. I was almost the same age as the characters and it all felt so deliciously real. I devoured the first book and immediately demanded the second. Luckily, it had just come out, and in a matter of a day or two, I had finished that one too. Then came the waiting for the publication of the third book, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

    Best “bodice-ripper” I ever read!

    I just finished reading the book Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake by Sarah MacLean and all I can say is - WOW. I haven't read one of these "bodice-rippers" in a long time.  I went back and forth between laughing and fanning myself and sighing and crying! Lady Calpurnia Hartwell has always been a good girl, and always does the right thing. Deciding it is time for a change, she makes a list of things she must do in her life to satisfy her so she can truly be happy. She wasn't counting on the charming and devastatingly handsome, Gabriel St.
