Audiobooks 101- A guide to the Audiobook Galaxy

Welcome to the world of Audiobooks! Today we’ll be raving about our love for audiobooks and what you have to consider before choosing what to listen to next! 

Susi: I can’t really say how all this started- okay maybe I do- Caro was crazy about audiobooks and the last Carolyn Crane was in audio first so I tried it and never looked back. It’s just so handy. You can knit while listening to audiobooks or be on the tram or clean the apartment or other things you need 2 hands for. Just the perfect way to spend the time.

Caro:I started listening to Harry Potter years ago when I had insomnia (it didn’t help btw the narration sucked me in). The narrator blew me away and ever since I kept wishing I could listen to more Audiobooks. I finally gave in and tried a few books and I got addicted. I listen to …

The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me?

Welcome to our new sexy edition of The Good, The Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me? This week we’re sticking to these 3 categories and applying them to Ménage covers! We’ve found that successfully portraying Ménages on covers is not always easy. Or maybe we’re just picky. Who knows! Be prepared for the best and the worst!

Reminder: We’re just talking about the covers and not about the books’ content. Some great books have horrid covers and vice-versa. 😉

Ménage on a cover: The good and the Bad and the Are-you-kidding-me?

The Good Sandwich:

Caro: I know we’ve already talked about the Tart cover so I’ll ust keep it short and say I love it. Now I just discovered the cover of Double Time and I love it too! It’s soft and sexy. I love the colors I love how they skin looks so soft. 2 thumbs up!

I like the cover of Tequila Truth. …

The Good, the Bad and the Are-You-Kidding-Me?

Welcome or should I say Howdy! Yes you’ve heard right this week in our new edition of  The Good-The-Bad-and-the-Are-You-Kidding-Me? we’ll be talking about cowboy covers! We’ll be honest this post was inspired by Susi’s cowboy addiction of the week. Let’s say she’s been gobbling down Lorelei James books and I fear we’ve lost her to the Cowboy-Fever *wink*
So what makes a good Wild Wild West cover? We aren’t sure but while we thought about it we came up with some genre tropes that cover artist love to use. Some book would actually fit more than one trope but we choose the most fitting one. So buckle up ladies and come take a ride with us. Yeehaaa!

1 The Hat
What would a cowboy be without a Stetson to accompany the tough as nails look.

Caro: I really like the Maya Banks cover, it’s pretty and not overdone. On the other hand we have …
