This is a hard review for me to write because I’m not sure how I feel about the book. On one hand, the book is funny and charming. There are loads of crazy characters and heartwarming moments. I loved the setting (a castle in Scotland!) and while the plot...

Top 10 Holiday Gifts to get Book Lovers

TIS THE SEASON! So the only thing I love more than shopping for myself is shopping for my friends! Do you have book lovers in need of gifts? But don't want to get them more books?? I’m a sucker for some bookends. Whether it’s Supergirl or Dragons or HP  or Star Wars, these book ends are fun and creative ways of showing off your books. Not to mention you can’t have enough ways to display your favorites, am I right?!       While I’m not a personal fan of the booksleeve, a couple of my friends have raved about them so I’m going to give one another shot. You can find a number of them hand sewn on Etsy, in different sizes and shapes, with different openings in a variety of fabrics. I like looking at them and whether or not your friend is a lover of Hardcovers or Paperbacks, there’s one out there for them! Honestly, I’ll probably order the one in the picture. It’s so pretty!         I’ve wanted these lit fingerless gloves for so long I can’t even tell you. (Pictured-  Poe’s The Raven) I especially love that they’re fingerless because I do a lot of typing (for work and personal) so these are perfect for me! Or you can always opt for a scarf. (Pictured – Pride and Prejudice) There’s something...

Events: Book Club (October)

If you’re like me, the only thing more satisfying than reading a good book is telling your friends about it! I am in a couple of book clubs that meet regularly. The one that I manage with my friend T from Nite Lite Book Reviews Our dear friend Laura, who now has moved back to snowy beautiful N.M., wanted to start a book club at our work. We all worked in the same department at a record label in Burbank. The idea formed and viola! There we were. This was many many years ago and we’re still going strong. Some of us have worked together, but a lot of us are just friends who love to read. We are an opera singer, music publisher, music label director, speech pathologist, lawyer, environmental activist, and more. I love our book club. It’s one of the few nights out I don’t mind staying out late for. (Late for me now is 9:30pm given that my baby can get up as early as 5am the next morning!   What I love about book clubs: It brings together a group of people who may not have known each other outside of the club. Sure, the core of us know each other through work, but our book club expanded mostly because someone met someone who a.) liked books and b.) thought was nice enough to...
