Book Club Kit: A Beautiful Heist

I just sent the final copyedits for my latest book back to my editor, so I find myself with a little breathing room again. What to do? Ooh, I know… I’ve been wanting to create a book club kit for A BEAUTIFUL HEIST for a while. But I thought–why not go beyond merely providing discussion questions? Let’s take this up a notch.… Read the rest

7 Gifts For Bookish Types

What to give the booklover in your life? Well, books, obviously. But what if you’re not entirely sure of their reading tastes, or which books they’ve already read? Well, how about one of these book-inspired gifts? (Clicking on the image will take you to the buy link.) 1. Jane Austen Scarf Gorgeous words printed on luxurious fabric.

Do You Ever Abandon Books?

I used to finish every book I started reading. Even if I didn’t like it, even if I was bored, I would push through. I guess it was the Type A in me. But times have changed. As I’ve grown older I’ve realized that life is too short to read something I’m not enjoying! There are too many books out there, and my TBR list is too unwieldy, to waste time like that.… Read the rest

The Health Benefits Of Reading

I’m an avid reader and I always have been. So when someone says to me, with a vaguely superior air (and this happens surprisingly often): “Oh, I don’t read fiction. I don’t have time for that. I’m too busy; I have more important things to do…”, well, this is how I feel: I’m sorry…what did you just say? Today’s post is my contribution to Tackle Your TBR Read-A-Thon , a super fun reading challenge hosted by Tressa’s Wishful Endings and Colorimetry.Read the rest

Tackle Your TBR Read-A-Thon

I started a reading challenge this week! Tressa is a lovely book blogger I’ve come to know, and when she invited me to participate, I thought it sounded like so much fun I just had to join in. The idea is this: now that the kids are back in school, it’s the perfect time to take a big bite out of the HUGE To-Be-Read pile that so many of us have (me included).… Read the rest

Movies That Were Better Than The Book

It’s fun to see a favorite book come to life. Although, all too often, it’s disappointing in one way or another. How many times have you heard people say: “Oh, but the book was sooo much better than the movie…”? Sometimes I think this isn’t a fair comparison. The storyline in a book is usually longer than a screenplay, so naturally some stuff has to be cut out.… Read the rest

Book Club: The Forgotten Garden

The Forgotten Garden, by Kate Morton, is a fairy tale. It is a lush saga, a delicious gothic mystery, and a beautifully told story of the interwoven lives of three women from different eras. There are gorgeous settings: Australia, late Victorian London, and a grand English manor in Cornwall. There are dark family secrets, and themes of escape, abandonment, obsession, and the quest to learn the truth about oneself.… Read the rest

Book Club: Gone Girl

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while–write a review of Gone Girl, by Gillian Flynn. But as I’ve said before, I barely have time to brush my teeth on a regular basis, let alone write book reviews…so I typically reserve this activity for the books that make the greatest impact on me. And frankly, this book rocked my world.… Read the rest

E-Readers: Love Them Or Hate Them?

I bought myself a Kobo e-reader about a year ago. A little Christmas prezzie for myself, in fact. I was planning to use it primarily for travel (like most people)…but now, a mere 12 months later, I find that I’ve been wholeheartedly converted. This is something I never thought would happen. I love books. I love the look of books. I love the feel of books.… Read the rest

On The Island: Wonderful Publishing Story, Lovely Book.

I recently read the book On The Island by Tracey Garvis Graves. Admittedly, my primary reason for reading it was my fascination with this author’s path to publication. This is a woman who, after slugging it out trying to get her novel published via the traditional route, decided to self-publish. Now, publishing a novel yourself–if you’re hoping for any degree of success–is notoriously difficult.… Read the rest
