Real Vampires Hate Skinny Jeans

Real Vampires Hate Skinny Jeans
By:Gerry Bartlett
Published:April 3, 2012

Someone is eating for two...

Full-figured vampire Glory St. Clair thinks things are finally going her way. She's no longer possessed by a demon, the legions of hell aren't on her tail, and her love life is heating up since she managed to reconnect with her maker-and longtime lover-Jeremy Blade.

When a pregnant demon shows up on her doorstep, Glory knows that everything is about to go to hell. Alesa is claiming that the baby she's carrying is Rafe's, conceived while she was inhabiting Glory's body. A clever trap? Or could it be true?

Booties and bibs are the last thing on Glory's mind when she discovers dark secrets from her own forgotten past. Who is she? What is she? And how will the men in her life deal with the fact that she may be more powerful than she knew? One thing is certain. Glory has way more to worry about than fitting into her favorite pair of jeans...

My Thoughts:
I hate Alesa so much, dang demons, excluding Rafe of course. Glory is just too nice, she just helps Alesa out, after all she did to her. Rafe can't seem to get away from Alesa, she is the worst stalker ever. Ian just makes all that Glory is going through worse, and Glory just has to have answers which ends up leaving her with more questions than ever.

Real Vampires Don't Wear Size Six

Real Vampires Don't Wear Size Six
By:Gerry Bartlett
Published:August 2, 2011

After Glory St. Clair kicked out the demon that had set up shop in her body, she had a serious fallout with longtime lover Jeremy Blade. But before Glory can win him back, she has some issues of the hellish variety to deal with.

When Lucifer himself offers Glory the ultimate temptation-work for the devil and he'll make her a size six-the curvy vampire's not sure if she can resist. But what Glory does know is that somehow, she's going to get back the man she loves and show everyone that real vampires always have more to love.

My Thoughts:
I love this whole series, and each book gets funnier. I thought that this one was a riot, and it upset me all at the same time. Glory always seems to find trouble but always seems to recover well,but what girl wouldn't recover with guys like Jeremy, Rafe and Ray loving you and supporting me! I hope that this series just keeps getting better. I wanted to kill Lucifer at one point for doing Glory so wrong but what did I expect he is the devil after all. Its so hard not to pull for Rafe and Glory even when you're pulling for Jeremy and Glory too. I loved that ghosts,whos names have escaped me at the moment, came back in the picture, they are so funny.

Small Medium at Large Review

 Small Medium and Large
By: Joanne Levy
Expected by publication:July 3, 2012

After she’s hit by lightning at a wedding, twelve-year-old Lilah Bloom develops a new talent: she can hear dead people. Among them, there’s her overopinionated Bubby Dora; a prissy fashion designer; and an approval-seeking clown who livens up a séance. With Bubby Dora leading the way, these and other sweetly imperfect ghosts haunt Lilah through seventh grade, and help her face her one big fear: talking to—and possibly going to the seventh-grade dance with—her crush, Andrew Finkel.

My Thoughts
I really enjoyed this book it was good and to the point, not a lot of unnecessary details that have nothing to do with the plot. The characters were funny and likable. I hope there will be more

If I Die Review

 If I Die
By: Rachel Vincent
Published:September 27,2011

Goodreads Synopsis:
The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee's no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee—she screams when someone dies.

But the next scream might be for Kaylee.

Yeah—it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students. The only girls immune to his lure are Kaylee and Sabine, her boyfriend's needy ex-girlfriend. Now the unlikely allies have to get rid of Mr. Beck…before he discovers they aren't quite human, either.

But Kaylee's borrowed lifeline is nearing its end. And those who care about her will do anything to save her life.


My Thoughts:
I loved this book I didn't think it would be better than My soul to steal but it was.I'm definitely team Tod now and will stay that way!! This book was wonderful, the plot was the best so far and definitely makes me want to read before I wake. Tod was awesome and different in this story, and that was my favorite part. I loved that Kaylee always does the righteous thing no matter what and in the end everything worked out kinda.

Never to Sleep Review

 Never To Sleep
By: Rachel Vincent
Published:January 1,2012

Goodreads Synopsis:
 Don't Close Your Eyes.

Sophie Cavanaugh is not going to let her freak of a cousin's strange psychiatric condition ruin high school for them both. Not after all the work she's put into cultivating the right look, and friends, and reputation. But then, Sophie sees something so frightening she lets out a blood-curdling scream—and finds herself stuck in a bizarre parallel world where nothing is safe and deadly creatures lurk just out of sight, waiting for her to close her eyes and sleep...forever.

Could this world be real? Or does insanity run in the family...?

My thoughts:
This was Sophie's book, and it was interesting seeing Sophie in that situation. Luca was an interesting twist and I can't wait to read Before I wake to find out what he's up to. This novella happened during If I die, and unfortunately no light was shed in that book but at the end it tells you to look forward to Before I wake for more, so waiting for before I wake to come out.

MySoul to Steal Review

My Soul to Steal
By:Rachel Vincent
Published:January 14,2011 

Trying to work things out with Nash—her maybe boyfriend—is hard enough for Kaylee Cavanaugh. She can't just pretend nothing happened. But "complicated" doesn't even begin to describe their relationship when his ex-girlfriend transfers to their school, determined to take Nash back.

See, Sabine isn't just an ordinary girl. She's a mara, the living personification of a nightmare. She can read people's fears—and craft them into nightmares while her victims sleep. Feeding from human fear is how she survives.

And Sabine isn't above scaring Kaylee and the entire school to death to get whatever—and whoever—she wants.

My Thoughts:
I have to say this is now my favorite soul screamer book. I love all the emotional termoil the characters were going through and the love triangle made it amusing. I love how the further I get into the series the more Tod seems to act like a human rather than a reaper with no humanity. I love that no matter what Kaylee does she can't seem to get away from trouble even though she is a good person and tries to do the right thing. I feel bad for Kaylee and Sabine because they are just so hopeless either way. Nash just can't get anything right and Tod is just becoming this knight in shinning armor.

George M. Moser Interview

Today I'm going to do an interview with George M. Moser  author of Nine Lives.

Hi George M. Moser! Thank you for taking the time to interview with me today! I just finished reading Nine Lives and it was very good, I love and am fascinated with Egyptian lore. Can you tell the readers a little something about the story?

>>GMM:Nine Lives is the story of a young man who leads a picturesque type of life. He is happily married to a beautiful woman with a child and a wonderful home. He grew up dreaming of looking at the stars with his dad. Recently, his dad died leaving him with with an old car and a message to dream. It was always his dream to look at the stars but now he finds himslef being responsible in his life.

One Day, he comes home and accidentally runs over a cat with his dad's old car. Unbeknownst to him, the cat is an ancient being bent on taking it's revenge on Michael. The cat comes back in a series of increasingly serious incidents threatening everything in Michael's life .

The novel potrays the twin fears of a man who is haunted by his own psychological demos as well as demons from beyond. Evil manifests itself as terrifying feline beasts as well as more familiar incarnations such as denial, self-doubt, dishonety and greed.

What or who inspired you to write this story?

>>GMM:This Particular story is actually based on a true story. I came home from work one day and my wife told me about a small cat stuck under our back porch. Just like the story, my dog and I chased it around the house and it ran up inside my car. Unfortunately, the cat had the same fate as the one in the story.

What I didn't realize was that stories take on a life of their own. This story actually has much deeper meaning than just a cat coming back for revenge. I found during my writing. that I was actually comparing his life to what I was going through in my real life. Michael Morino struggles with the idea of doing what makes him happy in life and doing what he feels he should be doing. I believe all of us have a choice in life to do what truly makes us happy. We  feel obligated to do something else because it is expected of us. Hopefully, when people read this, the message comes out that we all need to do what makes us happy in life. We all have more than one life to live.

Did you do a lot of research on Egyptian lore get the basis for this story?

>>GMM: I traveled to Egypt and thought it was one of the most amazing places in the world. There is so much there that no one has been able to explain. one of them is the sphinx. It's older that the pyramids, which are one of the most incredible things I have ever seen in my life. No one talks about the sphinx. No one knows who built it, how old it is or how it eroded. Many now believe it was water that eroded the Sphinx. That means there was water there in the Sahara desert which is pretty incredible.

I wanted a background story for the cat. I thought that the Egyptian lore was perfect for my story. I did do quite a bit of research on past history of Egypt and their beliefs about the stars. Most of it, I used from my own experience but I followed up with facts in my research.

What attracted you to the genre of horror versus other genres?

>>GMM: I always wanted to write. I just never really believed it would happen. As a kid, I loved JRR Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings. I wanted to write a story like that but it was too daunting to even think about making a world like he did. Later in life, I discovered Stephen King. I am not necessarily a horro fan but he writes so well that I became a huge fan of his. I am actually more of a fan of the thrillers and that's how I wante my books to be. I like to think of them more like Michael Crichton.

I have collected ideas fro stories over the years. I discovered thay all had a theme. I  have always been a fan of being scared, I loved old horror movies. I decied to write horror stories but I didn't want the gruesome stories. i wanted my stories to be different, more of a thriller. I wanted happy stories or at least ones with happy endings. I wanted stories that Made People Laugh and there was a lesson to be learned.

Who are your literay icons?

 >>GMM: Stephen king is a huge influence on my writing. It's not just teh stories but the way that he writes. Another influence on my writing is Michael Crichton. You can see his influence with th Egyptian parts of my story. I am also a fan of Mark Twain and Shakespeare. I would love to be able to tell a story as good as any of them.

Are there any future books in the works? If so, are they going to be in the horror genre as well?

>>GMM: I am finishing my second novel now called The Bartello. It's of the Horror genre about an old movie theatre with something ancient living in it. The book is related to my first one, though I am not going to come out and tell people that I am writing a series. I like to be a little cryptic about my writing. If readers liked my first book, they're definitely going to like my second book. It is also more of a thriller keeping the reader on the edge of their seat.

Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

>>GMM:Keep writing. I found the more I write, the more vivid my stories became. Other writers are often quoted about reading and writing as well. I think thats an easy answer and probably the most obvious but there is one important element missing. Take time off and dream a little. That's where the true stories are born. In fact, that's one of the main themes in my story, Nine Lives. Dream.

How can the readers find you online?

>>GMM:I have a website at which has updates for my books and all future books plus links to places to purchase the book. The best place to buy it now would be Just type in Nine Lives or my name.I also have a blog

I loved your book Nine Lives and I found it very scary and I did catch the fact that the main character was tormented by his personal demons while dealing with a real to life demon. I also wanted to let the readers know about my crazy coincidence I had the night I finished your book. I was laying in my room when i heard a cat howling which sounded a lot like a babies cry so I got up to check on my son and he was asleep then I heard it again so I went out to the living room and could finally hear that it was a cat so I opened the door and the cat arched it's back as it hissed at me, then ran off . It was a crazy coincidence. Don't forget to check out my Review for Nine Lives.Thank you again for taking the time to interview with me today! Best of luck on your future works.

>>GMM:Thank you so much Mers for having me!

Nine Lives Review

Published: March 12,2012

Goodreads Synopsis:
Do cats really have 9 Lives? Find out in this suspense-thrilling page-turner that will definitely keep you up all night! On a seemingly ordinary day, Michael Merlino, a successful man with a picture-perfect family, accidentally killed a stray cat. Unbeknownst to him, this mundane occurrence was to become the day he would never forget as a series of eerie and tormenting events begin to haunt him and his family. Will he solve the mystery behind these series of bizarre and horrendous happenings? Where will this all lead to? Discover the answer in this spine-tingling horror story you wouldn’t want to miss.
Nine Lives is the thrilling debut novel from George M. Moser, a captivating and quirky tale in which a chilling horror rises from the most unlikely of places. Masterfully fusing legends of Egyptian antiquity with elements of popular horror and urban myth, Moser delivers an atmospheric narrative full of dark twists and turns. Moser conjures characters of deep emotional richness, bringing a heartfelt realism to his work. Nine Lives portrays the twin fears of a man who is haunted by his own psychological demons as well as demons from the beyond. Evil manifests itself as terrifying feline beasts as well as more familiar incarnations such as denial, self-doubt, dishonesty and greed. At times romantic and at times absurdist, Moser’s thoughtful and captivating storytelling delivers a tale of black comedy and powerful human drama making Nine Lives into much more than a horror story. A rip-roaring plot with a noble morality, Nine Lives is a must-read for all discerning fiction fans, cat lovers, horror buffs and indeed, anyone who likes a great read with a truly worthwhile message

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book, it was scary and had me on the edge of my seat. I liked how the author George M. Moser had his character dealing with personal demons just like real people do while he was dealing with a real demon threatening his life. I thought the characters were relate-able and felt like I knew them. I love Egyptian lore and he spun it beautifully in his plot for the story, I found it to be unique and a little reminiscent of Stephen king, who I love, so this was from the beginning a book that drew me in and kept me there.

Reaper Review

Reaper (Soul Screamers 3.5)
By:Rachel Vincent
Published:December 10, 2010

Tod Hudson was a typical teenager. He liked girls, sports, food and tolerated his younger brother, Nash. In fact, he had his whole life in front of him--and due to his bean sidhe heritage, it was going to be a very long life indeed. And then the car accident occurred.
Suddenly Tod's future wasn't so sure, and he had to make a choice. Life... Death... or something Between....

My Thoughts:
I liked learning the story of how Tod became a Reaper. It also made me lean more towards Tod than nash, I'm so confused on which of the two I really like. It was a wonderful novella and It gave back story on Tod that gave you a different view of him as a person Reaper.

Death by Diamonds Review

 Death by Diamonds 
(Vintage Magic #3)
By: Annette Blair
Published:July 6, 2010

Madeira Cutler loves her Vintage Magic boutique, but the 'visions' she gets from the garments can be hard to handle, especially when she knows the owner. At first she's thrilled to receive a package containing the beautifully bejeweled dress she designed for actress and old friend Dominique Delong while in fashion school. But the dress comes with a disturbing message from Dominique, who it seems took her last bow under very mysterious circumstances.

My thoughts:
I loved this book, it was my favorite of the series so far. It had you going from the first page and it also helped that their was some testosterone battles between Nick and Werner, which was amusing and sweet. Mad, of course was playing Nancy Drew as usual and she did so well and managed not to get hurt in the process. Again the characters are awesome as was the storyline. I also loved that Mad's ability was used more in this book than the others and the fact that she is learning how to hone it.

Larceny & Lace Review

Published:August 4,2009

Goodreads Synopsis:
Madeira Cutler is busy opening her new vintage clothing store in what was once the town's morgue when she discovers an intruder snooping around a bunch of bones in a body drawer. Now, she'll have to dig up more than the past to solve a crime.

My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book just as much as the first book in the series, A Veiled deception. I loved the relationship between Mad and Werner, and kinda rooting for him now even though I still like nick. The struggle within Mad to embrace her mothers belief is intriguing because it comes so naturally but she is still unsure. The relationship shift between Harry and Fiona was also charming to read about. The characters just keep growing and you keep learning more about them. A few new characters were introduced in a crazy conspiracy that kept me reading the whole time. Annette Blair is an awesome writer and I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.

A Veiled Deception Review

Published:January 29,2009 

Goodreads Synopsis:
 The right dress can be magic; the wrong one murder

From the national bestselling author of Sensation’s Witch series comes the new Vintage Magic Mystery series, featuring Madeira Cutler. While opening her own vintage clothing shop, Maddie must clear her family’s name when her sister’s wedding festivities hit a snag: murder.

My thoughts:
I loved Madeira and her name. I love that clothes "speak" to her and her passion for vintage clothes as well as her other "gift". I also love her unyielding love for her family and her inability to not be heroic. It also helped to have a hot male named Nick Jaconetti to put a little sizzle in the mix. I like the story it was original and interesting. I loved all the different lives being intertwined and how it all got resolved in the end, cuz I'm a sucker for a happy ending.I can't wait to read the other books in the series to find out more about the characters.

My Book Boyfriend {8}

Nick Janconetti

Classically Handsome
Like a Roman sculpture come to life

 Madeira-"You know I love Ultraviolet Man, you interfering beast."
Nick-"I do,you impetuous beauty."

{The seat belt sign went on as the flight crew prepared for landing.}Madeira-"Wow, that was fast."
{Tickling her her as he whispered.}Nick-"Don't ever say that to me in bed."
{Hardly likely, he knew how to take his time.}Madeira-"There will be no more of that, mister, if you keep calling me nuts.
Nick-"I didn't, you did."
Madeira-"You didn't deny it."
{He nibbled her ear}Nick-"There will be more, and you'll love it."

I chose this actor/model because he is smokin' and again absolutely love his eyes, plus he fit my vision of a roman sculpture come to life!

The Vicious Deep Review

Expected Publication: May 1,2012

Goodreads Synopsis:
For Tristan Hart, everything changes with one crashing wave.

He was gone for three days. Sucked out to sea in a tidal wave and spit back ashore at Coney Island with no memory of what happened. Now his dreams are haunted by a terrifying silver mermaid with razor-sharp teeth.

His best friend Layla is convinced something is wrong. But how can he explain he can sense emotion like never before? How can he explain he’s heir to a kingdom he never knew existed? That he’s suddenly a pawn in a battle as ancient as the gods.

Something happened to him in those three days. He was claimed by the sea…and now it wants him back.

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed this book,it was well written and the characters were well developed, they give you back story on the main character and his family throughout the book. The story was unique and I love how the authors describes the mermaids and mermen. I also loved how this story was from a merman's point of view because when you think mermaids, you think of girls not the guys. This story has a little bit of romance and some awesome adventure. I am super excited for the books that are sure to come as the ending leaves you wanting more.

My Soul to Keep Review

Published: June 1, 2010

Goodreads Synopsis:
Kaylee has one addiction: her very hot, very popular boyfriend, Nash. A banshee like Kaylee, Nash understands her like no one else. Nothing can come between them.Until something does.Demon breath. No, not the toothpaste-challenged kind. The Netherworld kind. The kind that really can kill you. Somehow the super-addictive substance has made its way to the human world. But how? Kaylee and Nash have to cut off the source and protect their friends—one of whom is already hooked.And so is someone else…

My Thoughts:
I was so mad at this book, Nash was so cute and sweet, dang it! Poor Kaylee she just can't seem to keep trouble away from her and her friends and family. I can't believe how when I went into this book I was team Nash and then by the middle of the book and through the end I switched to team Tod, and his softer side. I can't believe Nash and how he acted and let himself get into the mess he was in. I can't wait to read the next installment and see if it will make me swap teams again or if I'll stay team Tod or if I'll be stuck somewhere in the middle! This book was well written and kept me reading the whole time just like the first two but I do have to say I liked this one and the first one the best number two was good but it wasn't my favorite.

What is one book that you would be nervous to see a movie adaption of because you think the movie could never live up to the book?

My Answer:
I really don't know, I am always scared for books to be turned into movies because I've never seen a book turned movie that lived up to the book, close but not as good. So I guess any book I've ever liked would scare me, Harry Potter being turned into a movie scared me, they were good but not as good as the books, The House of night series being turned into movies worries me and the Alex cross novels being turned in to movies worried me but the two that re out are good but not as good.

I have not ever bought a book BECAUSE of a bad review, I don't usually buy books based solely on others reviews because just because someone didn't like a book doesn't mean that I won't like it so I read others reviews, read the summary of the book and then think really hard on whether or not I want to purchase the book.

My Book Boyfriend {7}

 This week my book boyfriend is Professor Anson McCord from A Serpent in Turquoise by Peggy Nicholson, He is rugged and hot and a smart-ass, but who doesn't love a little wit!

Professor Anson McCord

wonderfully carved lips
Lean, muscular body
Nice eyes, crinkled at the corners
Dark Brown Hair
Shoulders and buns to die for
sense of humor

" 'Fraid we're way past that. I'm McCord, and who the heck are you? Tell me please I didn't Kiss and agent of the IRs, hell-bent on an audit. I'd have to shoot myself. You're Lorraine who?"

"So say it! 'McCord, I owe you my sorry life. If I know where to find a dino, it's your with a bow on it.' or would you rather I turn around and hang you back in the tree where I found you?

McCord-" Too bad. I was thinking it was time for a siesta."  
Raine-"Considering we broke camp two hours ago, isn't it a bit early to get horizontal?"
McCord-"Who needs to be horizontal? With a little creativity..."

Raine-"I Think I'd fall asleep on you." she smiled against his lips. "Can I have a rain check?"
McCord-"The whole dang checkbook. Cash 'em in anytime. They'll never bounce." His kisses softened, withdrew gradually to her temple, her ear, the top of her shoulder.

I chose Mathew McConaughey to play my Professor Anson McCord because he is hot and could like rugged and I could totally see him making smart retorts like McCord!

A Serpent in Turquoise Review

Published:November 7,2006 

Goodreads Synopsis:
Careening down a winding pass in Mexico to escape a truckload of goons wasn't how dinosaur hunter Raine Ashaway planned to meet Anson McCord, the archaeologist who'd written her regarding a possible fossil find. She'd expected the professor to be a fossil himself, but McCord's more Indiana Jones than the Mummy. And when he describes a lost Aztec city whose people worshipped a god resembling a never-before-seen species of triceratops, the news gets her blood pumping as much as his sexy Texan smile. Raine's ready to seek the city of the Feathered Serpent with McCord, but can she trust him to share the spoils?
It may not matter--others will do "anything" to keep them from finding it

My Thoughts:
This book was action packed from the very beginning.  You were thrown into action and adventure throughout the whole book.I loved all the Aztec stories, and legends wound into the story, it was wonderful and intriguing. The characters were well developed and had depth, the relationship in the story actually had time to bloom but was still a little quick for me. The main characters Raine and McCord were both driven, determined and stubborn which made for a wonderful dialogue between the two.

Friday Recommends {2}


This Friday I'm Recommending Stuck with You by Trish Jensen!

Goodreads synopsis:
 As lawyers on opposing sides of a messy divorce case, Paige Hart and Ross Bennett ought to have kept matters purely professional, yet Paige and Ross came to loathe each other with an intensity that was strictly
personal. The bad blood between them takes on an unexpected new dimension when the infuriated pair is forced to share a hospital room, when they're quarantined after being exposed to the rare and highly contagious Tibetan Concupiscence Virus that's reputed to shift sensual desire into high gear. When symptoms (which a non medical person might mistake for pure and simple lust) start showing up way ahead of schedule, the lawyers' objections to each other are overruled -- and they enjoy every minute of it. But, after the doctors declare that the disease has run its course, Paige and Ross are still feverish with a longing for one another that they hope will never be cured. When the verdict comes in, will they be sentenced to life -- in love? The trend toward funny, sexy contemporary romance has been around for a while, but Trish Jensen offers readers a fresh (in both senses of the word) take on this popular genre.

I love this book. It was hilarious and amazingly written, I love the characters and the plot! I was laughing the whole time, it was well worth the time it took to read it and it is definitely one of my favorite books and authors now!The author is really nice as well.

"Love is just the beginning... of the end."

Mason Starling is a champion fencer for Gosforth Academy, but she’s never had to fight for her life. Until now. When a ferocious storm rips through Manhattan and unleashes terrifying creatures onto Gosforth’s campus, Mason barely escapes alive. Without help from the mysterious stranger who appeared in the midst of the storm, she might not have made it at all. But now, in the aftermath, Mason’s life begins to spin dramatically, mystically out of control, and the only one who seems able to help her is the stranger who can remember nothing but his name: Fennrys Wolf.

As Mason and Fenn uncover more about Fenn’s past and the strange events that surround them, they realize that Mason’s family — and its dark allegiance to the ancient Norse gods — is at the center of everything. A predetermined fate seems to be closing in on Mason, but is it possible to change one’s destiny?

Readers who fell in love with Lesley Livingston’s Wondrous Strange trilogy and those who love Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series will be captivated by the sweeping romance and pulse-pounding action of Starling
