Review | All the Walls of Belfast by Sarah J. Carlson

I have had a string of lovely successes with contemporaries lately. I wonder, sometimes, about the phases we go through, both in reading and in life in general and whether or not (or where) they align. I'm not always able to see the patterns amid the daily vicissitudes, but I wonder about them often. Several months ago, I saw the cover for Sarah J. Carlson's debut novel  and thought I might have died and gone direct to heaven. The title alone is my favorite of the year, hands down. I don't eve...

Save the ARC, the largest popular music library in the United States

New York City's ARChive of Contemporary Music (ARC) is a cultural treasure packed with actual treasures.

Microsoft’s flattest, most flexible, functional mouse yet

Curved when you want, flat when you need, the Arc Surface mouse by Microsoft follows a format it set a long time ago. The mouse comes as a flat, remote-ish shape and can bend/curve/arc into an ergonomic mouse when needed. When you’re done, the mouse unfolds and becomes flat again.The Arc Surface mouse, however, has a key difference that makes it rather useful and advanced. It ditches the clicking keys and scroll wheel for a touch surface, much like Apple’s Magic Mouse. The surface lets you perfo...

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway | Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long

I'm delighted to be a part of the blog tour for this first novel in Julie Anne Long's new historical series―The Palace of Rogues. I found my way to Ms. Long's writing in a bit of a piecemeal fashion. Her long-running series is widely beloved and records the various and sundry escapades of the always-scheming, never repentant Eversea and Redmond families. Really, the series is worth the price of admission for the hilarious (and ever-evolving) "Ballad of Colin Eversea" alone (though Colin's is ...

AAA Research Lays Out How Temperature Affects EV Range

Review | A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

The first review of the year! Writing this one always feels fresh and hopeful to me and like it may set the tone of my reading year in a way. This was a very good one to start with. And the moral of this story appears to be: I will never tire of Beauty and the Beast retellings. A fact I was not unaware of, but that I am happy to have confirmed once more, this time after reading Brigid Kemmerer's . My favorites tend to run the Robin McKinley way, with the most recent favorite retelling being M...

Review | The Hollow of Fear by Sherry Thomas

This series. My feelings for it are fierce and tangled, much like the ties that bind its protagonists. Charlotte, Lord Ingram, Livia, Inspector Treadles, Bancroft, Lady Ingram . . . characterize them each how you will, but there is nothing equivocal about them. While there is infinite room for every sort of gray area in their circumstances, their histories, and their difficult presents, the feelings that they engender (at least in me) are nothing if not strong one way or the other. And really, ...

Review | Wicked and the Wallflower by Sarah MacLean

I looked forward to this book with barely restrained delight from the moment I heard the first faint whisperings of its existence. I read it as soon as I could get my hands on it, and then life got in the way (as it is wont to do), and I never quite got around to reviewing it. But I flatly refuse to let the year end without talking about this first book in Sarah MacLean's new series. Just in case you haven't, you know, read it yet. That way you'll have time to fit it in before the second boo...

Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: A Slow Reading Week

Well this has been an embarrassing week for a book reviewer! I've listened to one -- yes ONE -- book all week. That's it. I have an excuse of sorts: I'm trying to work ahead so I can take a trip with my girlfriends. Thus my life has been all about editing, freelance writing, packing, and otherwise losing my mind. Oh and did I mention the poison ivy I got while weeding the other day? Oh yes. What a great airplane trip I'm going to have (scratch, scratch). Fortunately, the rash doesn't see...

Titleist TS Drivers – A New Platform & A New Way of Thinking

Don’t let the timing fool you. We may be coming up on 2-years removed from the launch of the 917, but, for Titleist, the #TSProject is anything but just another driver released because the calendar mandates it. TS is an entirely new platform and to no small degree, an entirely new way of thinking. Inside the walls of Titleist, the TS Project was a full-on NCAA bracket-style bracket competition where different combinations of shapes, materials, and constructions were pitted against each other, al...

Review | The Governess Game by Tessa Dare

I think this is (shamefully) the first Tessa Dare book I've reviewed on the site. I believe I initially read a couple of her books awhile back and didn't really land upon the "right" one for me. Then I gave a try and found it to be ridiculously charming. The rest of the books in that series weren't quite my cuppa, but that first one was so fun that I went back and found the right Spindle Cove novel for me ( o, in case you're interested; ugh, I love that book). Which brings me to  , which is...

Bibliocrack Review: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

t crossed my radar around about the same time I got wind of The Wedding Date. Both debut books looked like exactly the sort of charming romcoms I wanted in my life at this specific point in time (always, really), and both sported perfectly adorable covers. I was intrigued not only by the obvious mathematical aspect of this novel, but with the fact that the protagonist is on the spectrum and that the story itself was inspired by Helen Hoang's own diagnosis with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. I ...

Bibliocrack Review | The Prince by Katharine Ashe

Because I want to shout my love for this book from the rooftops, I love it that much. And, yes, before we go any further, we should go ahead and acknowledge that this is more man-chest than has ever been seen before in these parts. I mean, wow is that lot. But the information relevant to your int...

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway | My Oxford Year by Julia Whelan

I'm delighted to be a part of the blog tour for Julia Whelan's debut novel . I'll confess this beautiful cover is what initially drew my eye. It's just a book I wanted to have on my shelf aesthetically. But even before I saw the cover, I'd heard of this title. It's as though it's been floating around in the ether for awhile now, what with a major motion picture already being in development. Truthfully, that level of advance hype gave me pause, as did the implied titular time constraint. Somet...

Review | Any Groom Will Do by Charis Michaels

So, for the past few weeks, I have basically been on one massive historical bender. It has been rather wonderful, really. And it's probably worth warning you that the highlights are going to be making their way here over the next few weeks. The whole thing began with a Laura Lee Guhrke reread, which led to a binge of her recent books, which led to one headlong Julie Anne Long tear. Somehow, I'd only read three of her books and inexplicably decided that was as far as I was going? Utter nonsens...

It has been too long since I've had a new Alpha and Omega novel in my hands. was a solid entry on my Best of 2015 list, and I have missed Anna and Charles (and Bran) ever since. is, if you can believe it, the fifth installment in the series. So it's no wonder I began reading and instantly felt how good it was to be back in Aspen Creek again with all of Bran's crazy foundlings.
