Blogtour : Home to Whiskey Creek (Whiskey Creek #4) – Brenda Novak

Welcome to the first stop of the Blogtour Home to Whiskey Creek by Brenda Novak! If you have been around here at (un)Conventional Boookviews before, you know I love the Whiskey Creek series, every time I get to open a new book in the series, I feel like I get to meet up with some good friends I haven’t seen for a long while. I’m really happy to be one of the hosts of the tour, as I think most of my blogger friends need to start reading this series – I have few people to discuss it with for the time being 😉 Back Cover: Sometimes home is the refuge you need—and sometimes it isn’t…. Adelaide Davies, who’s been […]

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 14

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 14

Welcome to my 14th post in the 15 Day Book Blogger Challenge, hosted by April over at Good Books and Good Wine. I’m actually a little sad to see this challenge coming to an end. I’ve had a lot of fun answering April’s prompts, and I have really loved reading everybody else’s answers as well. I guess a lot of bloggers have already finished their blogger challenge now, seeing as I haven’t posted my prompts every day since we started, but I will check the linkies to see what you have come up with if you have posted yours already.   15 Day Book Blogger Challenge : What Are Your Dealbreakers? I think I only have one real dealbreaker, the […]

Sidekick Showcase #12 – Cowboy

Sidekick Showcase #12 – Cowboy

Sidekick Showcase, previously known as Sidekick Saturday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jaclyn at JC’s Book Haven. There are many secondary characters that are as great as the primaries. In some cases, the sidekicks actually steal the show and you like them better than the heroine or hero. Maybe they didn’t have enough page time for how great they were. Anyone can play along! I will post my Sidekicks on Saturday, and so will Jaclyn, then whichever day during the week that you would like to post yours, you can put your link in on Jaclyn’s page. Just do the following: • Choose a sidekick *or someone other than the hero or heroine* that you would like to […]

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 13

Describe One Underappreciated Book Everyone Should Read Welcome to my Day 13 in the 15 Day book blogger challenge. This fun challenge is hosted by April at Good Books and Good Wine, she came up with this because she was in a blogging slump, and I have enjoyed getting to know a lot of bloggers better during the challenge. The prompt of the challenge today is to describe one underappreciated book I think everyone should read. This is just one of those things that is really difficult for me, because I truly don’t think there is a single book that exists that everyone should read. Yes, there are a lot of books I think are underappreciated, and I would love […]

Cover Reveal: Supernatural Fog (Supernatural Freak #2) – Louisa Klein

Cover Reveal: Supernatural Fog (Supernatural Freak #2) – Louisa Klein

Supernatural Fog – Cover Reveal 1) Learn how to use your new powers; 2) Find the other spirits; 3) Keep up with the training; 4) Defeat the Dark Cloud; 5) Don’t you ever, EVER fall in love with your best friend. Yeah, easier said than done. Supernatural Freak Robyn Wise is, well, freaking out. She’s trying to adjust to her new life as the Spirit of the Cat’s incarnation. But with little success. She cannot find the other animal spirits who are supposed to help her, nor can she master the tricky art of telekinesis. And then there’s James, her wizard best friend. They kissed in a moment of passion, right after she had slayed a powerful infernal monster. After […]

A Few Days in Paris

A Few Days in Paris

  Last week, I left my husband and children behind to spend a few days in Paris. I left home very early in the morning, got on the train and spent my time reading until I arrived. Big surprise, no? This is the third year in a row that I go to spend time in Paris with my best friend, Colleen, who is from Toronto in Canada. We both enjoy watching the Tour de France on TV, and these past three years, we have had seats on the finish line on the Champs-Elysées to see our favorites speed past us in the final stage of the tour. We usually stay in a hotel called The Hotel Esmeralda, just across the […]

Review: Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows #1) – Kim Harrison

Review: Dead Witch Walking (The Hollows #1) – Kim Harrison

Dead Witch Walking has been on my kindle for a very long time! I went to check, and I actually bought it in September 2010, so yeah, Rachel Morgan and her friends have been very patient waiting for me to really notice them. Lately, three of my very good blogging friends have been talking about The Hollows series and telling me how good it is, so I decided I should at least start reading Dead Witch Walking and see if I agreed with them or not. I was amazed at how action packed Dead Witch Walking was, with a big cast of characters – both main and secondary. The readers quickly realize that Rachel is a strong character, both physically […]

15 Day Book Blogger Challenge – Day 12

Welcome to my 12th post in this awesome Book Blogger Challenge that is hosted by April at Good Books and Good Wine. I can’t believe it’s coming to an end now. So far, I’ve had a lot of fun with these Challenge posts, and it’s great to read all the other particpating bloggers’ answers to each prompt. I feel like we’re all getting to know each other a lot better.   How to fight blogger fatigue? I think one good way to fight blogger fatigue is to participate in a blogger challenge like this one! Another is to just take a break! We get vacation from school and work, and I think taking a break from our blog every now […]
