As a book lover and avid reader, I am quite proud to say that I have read a lot of books. I have never hid the fact that my favorite genres are Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance and that I am an absolute sucker for anything Supernatural.
However, as with addiction there is always a downside and the one that I have found after reading so many books and following over 100 book series (and adding to that daily), are the clichés.
How many times can you read about Sexy Vampires with magnetic eyes, werewolves with possessive behaviors, kick-ass heroine, the girl next door that gets caught up in the paranormal or the half-human / half-faerie (vamp, shifter, etc)?
Don’t get me wrong, I still love to read about all of the above and now and then, a book or series comes along …

Half-Navajo Janet Begay comes to Magellan to investigate the mysterious disappearance of the police chief’s daughter. But the people of Magellan sense that Janet is not what she seems, and they’re right. Janet possesses extraordinary power which is tied to the storms that waft across the desert. The only person who can control her when she’s caught in the storm’s evocative power is Mick, a dark-haired, blue-eyed biker Janet can’t seem to touch with her powers. He can weild fire and not get burned, and Janet’s never sure where he goes when they’re not together.
Together they investigate mysterious disappearances, which Janet fears are tied to her mother’s people, the mythical gods from below the earth. They …
Now I will be honest with you, I never really pictured myself as a YA reader, sure, I read Twilight a couple of years ago and it was ok with its whole high school love thing, but it was a little too teenagery for my tastes.
I was put off not only by YA but by reading after that, not Twilight but The Host (which isn’t YA, I know), I hadn’t picked up a book in 10 months and I was going through a pretty rough patch life wise until one relatively normal day, I was on a holiday in north Queensland for a few weeks and I walked into their smaller of only two newsagencies. This newsagency was a reseller for Angus and Robertson (Australia’s version of Barnes and Noble) and there on the shelf was a set of three …

I look like an all-American grad student. But I am a werecat, a shape-shifter, and I live in two worlds.
Despite reservations from my family and my Pride, I escaped the pressure to continue my species and carved out a normal life for myself. Until the night a Stray attacked.
I’d been warned about Strays – werecats without a Pride, constantly on the lookout for someone like me: attractive, female and fertile. I fought him off, but then learned two of my fellow tabbies had disappeared.
This brush with danger was all my Pride needed to summon me back… for my own protection. Yeah, right. But …

For this week’s virtual travel, I get to show you a bit of my own country, Canada! I recently read Tay John by Howard O’Hagan, which is the legend of a man born in the late 1800′s and of his cursory attempts to meld into society, as the Western parts of Canada were being developed and the trains were being extended to our West Coast.
I’ve personally never visited these areas before, but as you can see from the pics, there’s still a lot of wilderness here; so much that remains untouched by man. What I have for you today are images of Yellowhead Lake, which according to O’Hagan’s novel was named after Tay John’s people (Tay John was a mispronunciation of “Tete Jaune”, as he was a yellow haired native.) I’ve also included the Athabaska river, which features prominently …

I’m still a redhead. Before we left Texas, I touched up the roots, and then I had some tawny apricot highlights put in. I guessed that meant I intended to keep this color for a while. Symbolic—I’d made a commitment, at least to my hair.
As a handler, Corine Solomon can touch any object and know its history. It’s too bad she can’t seem to forget her own. With her ex-boyfriend Chance in tow—lending his particularly supernatural brand of luck—Corine journeys back home to Kilmer, Georgia, in order to discover the truth behind her mother’s death and the origins of her “gift.”
But while trying to uncover the secrets in her past, Corine and Chance find …
