Book Blurb:

Four decades of peace have done little to ease the mistrust between humans and dragons in the kingdom of Goredd. Folding themselves into human shape, dragons attend court as ambassadors, and lend their rational, mathematical minds to universities as scholars and teachers. As the treaty’s anniversary draws near, however, tensions are high.

Seraphina Dombegh has reason to fear both sides. An unusually gifted musician, she joins the court just as a member of the royal family is murdered—in suspiciously draconian fashion. Seraphina is drawn into the investigation, partnering with the captain of the Queen’s Guard, the dangerously perceptive Prince Lucian Kiggs. While they begin to uncover hints …

Book Lovers Book Club: July 2013 Selections

Good afternoon everyone!

Here are the July selections for the Book Club. As voted by you guys the theme this month is Werewolves!

Need by Carrie Jones (Goodreads Link)

Pain shoots through my head. Fireworks. Explosions. All inside my brain. The white world goes dark and I know what’s about to happen.

Zara White suspects there’s a freaky guy semi-stalking her. She’s also obsessed with phobias. And it’s true, she hasn’t exactly been herself since her stepfather died. But exiling her to shivery Maine to live with her grandmother? That seems a bit extreme. The move is supposed to help her stay sane…but Zara’s pretty sure her mom just can’t deal with her right now.

She couldn’t be more wrong. Turns out the semi-stalker is not a figment of Zara’s overactive imagination. In fact, he’s still following her, leaving behind an eerie trail of gold dust. There’s something not right – not human – …

Jane True Series by Nicole Peeler

In the tiny village of Rockabill, Maine, Jane True—26-year-old bookstore clerk and secret night swimmer—has no idea that her absent mother’s legacy is entry into a world populated by the origins of human myths and legends.  It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: vampires are not quite what we think; dogs sometimes surprise us; and whatever you do, never—ever—rub the genie’s lamp.   For Jane, everything kicks off when she comes across a murder victim during her nightly clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean.  This grisly discovery leads to …

Worse than that? Jade can touch Kale. But bimbo Barbie is the least of Dez’s problems.

Book Lovers Book Club: June 2013 Selections

Hello again! *waves*

So the big moment is here, the first round of the Book Lovers Book Club choices!!

I have decided to start the book club off with something we’re all familiar with: Urban Fantasy – Vampires

Most of us have at least one of the following books on our shelves, so I figure it will be a good way to start us off.

Night Rising by Chris Marie Green  (GoodReads Link)

In this first book of an all-new trilogy, life proves stranger than the movies when a Hollywood underground coven of vampires comes to light-and gets targeted by the tough-as-nails daughter of a sexy screen siren.

Stuntwoman Dawn Madison hasn’t been on the best of terms with her father since her movie star mother died. Still, he is her dad, and when he vanishes while investigating the bizarre sighting-caught on film-of a supposedly long-dead child star, she comes home to Tinseltown to join …

Hello everyone!

So the girls and I have been throwing around the idea of doing a book club for a little while now and naturally we would love to get all of our wonderful readers involved.

The book club will be a monthly event, a new book will be chosen (by you guys) every month within a different genre. But first we need some suggestions!

Each book that you suggest must be either a stand alone or the first in a series. You can suggest any genre, any author, any anything! Just leave your suggestion Tile + Author in the comments below. I want all kinds of genres! Nothing is off limits here. (Please someone suggest some graphic novels! I have fallen in love with them, and I would love for the rest of the girls to fall in love with them also)
