There are too many books by fave authors coming out that I haven’t had a chance to read yet!
Top of mind comes Paris for One, Jojo Moyes’ short story collection, though it’s next in my To Be Listened To queue (the Kirkus reviewer thought it was charming).
I hope to get my hands on Sherry Thomas’ A Study in Scarlet Women soon. She’s one of my favorite writers and I’m really looking forward to her female ...
The leaves are starting to change in Wisconsin, and there’s a chill in the night. Neighbors’ fireplaces are firing up and scenting the neighborhood with woodsmoke, ushering in Fall, and thoughts of winter.
I’m not sure I’m ready for my first snowfall just yet, but I am ready for the changes that sneak in at this time of year.
2016 has been a year of change for me. Personal changes, professional changes, some positive, some not so much. But in ...
I just love the fact that the American Library Association and the Office of Intellectual Freedom do such a great job each year to remind us that freedom in reading is important and that we should all be mindful of the slippery slope that censorship can lead to.

From there you’ll find a wealth of fascinating, inspiring, and ...
I posted an amusing graphic in the Read-A-Romance Book Club Facebook page yesterday with this fab quote from Lemony Snicket:
“It is likely I will die next to a pile of things I was meaning to read.”
I always feel this way—and I’m sure you do too! So many books, never enough time….
I am happy to say that in the past few weeks I’ve read or listened to a few titles that were big checks off my “I’ve ...
Recently I’ve been working with a non-romance project that’s taken a ton of time and energy and also took us for a quick trip to Vegas for a conference—with horrible wifi, which kicked my never-ending to-do list back a week. (Not to mention my reading/listening—‘cuz my darling husband is extremely forbearing, but does get irritated when I spend too much time in his company with headphones on. Something about common courtesy, actually enjoying spending time with me, blah blah ...
In the middle of my traveling craziness last spring, I was down to my last Kirkus review book just as I was getting ready for a long airline trip. Sifting through my piles of publisher ARCs to find something to read after that last title, I picked up a book which looked intriguing (plus it was already getting great early buzz).
A high fantasy romance with a Greek Mythology tie-in sounded fresh and fascinating, but when I opened ...
Good-bye August, welcome September!
The end of August is always bittersweet for me. I am both enormously relieved and somewhat sad to see Read-A-Romance Month come to an end.
My wedding anniversary is at the end of July and my birthday is at the beginning of September, sandwiching RARM and making me a little tired when I celebrate those special moments. This year was especially complicated because my family is going through some unexpected difficulties, so juggling family issues, everything ...
One of my best friends, whom I’ve been friends with since high school, is the Queen of Akron, Ohio. Seriously, Yoly is a master of social media who travels across the city highlighting how amazing Akron is.
Yoly and I grew up in El Paso, TX and graduated together enough years ago that when we say “synchronicity” to many of our friends, it still reminds them of the Police Tour rather than the psychological term.
At the beginning of this ...
