Caroline Reynolds has a fantastic new apartment in San Francisco, a KitchenAid mixer, and no O (and we’re not talking Oprah here, folks). She has a flourishing design career, an office overlooking the bay, a killer zucchini bread recipe, and no O. She has Clive (the best cat ever), great friends, a great rack, and no O.

Adding insult to O-less, since her move, she has an oversexed neighbor with the loudest late-night wallbanging she’s ever heard. Each moan, spank, and–was that a meow?–punctuates the fact that not only is she losing sleep, she still has, yep, you guessed it, no O.

Enter Simon Parker. (No, really, Simon, …

For Sophia Stevenson, there’s no going back to the life she knew. She never asked for the powers that make her a precious commodity to the secret society of Illuminists—and their archenemies.

Captain Bion Donkova would give anything to possess the powers that have fallen in Sophia’s lap. If only the beautiful, infuriating woman could stay out of trouble, he wouldn’t have to keep coming to her rescue…

Bion and Sophia have friction to spare—and nothing fuels a forbidden passion better than danger…

Bookish Rave: What Reader Species Are You?

Here at BLI, we often ask how one can differentiate between a Book Lover and mere Reader. It turns out we were thinking to small. Laura E. Kelley realized there is an entire taxonomy of Readers and Book Lovers out there, and set out to identify and distinguish each individual species.

As you do.

Today we acknowledge that our International Book Congress requires more than simple geographic and genre diversity to be fully representative of the needs of Book Lovers. We may need to bulk up our ranks. Diversity hires, if you will.

And so, without further ado we present The Linnaean Hierarchy of Readers.* (Seriously, we did not create this. It is amazing, but also requires a scientific devotion to detail and organization that we can only aspire towards.)

Take your time to properly classify yourself. The Book Lovers will self-identify below.

Book Lovers Book Club: Series Read-Along Selections

Sunday Cravings

Hello Book Lovers! Anna’s not back yet, so I am doing my best to hold down the fort in her absence. Of course, I will be traveling for the next two weeks, so if I can’t find another Book Lover to fill in, we may be without Sunday Cravings for a bit.

But that isn’t anywhere near important as the fact that Winter Has Come to Alaska. I’m sure you are all rolling your eyes at me while wiping the dripping sweat off your collective brows – but it’s true. For the last few days, my car windows have been covered in frost in the morning. My roommate even turned her car on to heat it up before heading out today. WINTER IS HERE.

With that horrifying cheerful prospect to keep you all going, I present this week’s Sunday Cravings. It is, after all, important to stock up on your …

Around The Bookish World: Week-In-Review

Welcome to this week’s news edition! This week has been an interesting mix of news, with Amazon’s launching of another imprint, this time biographies, Stephanie Meyer ‘being over’ Twilight and Orson Scott Card’s is at it again.

 

 

Amazon has announced that it will be launching a new imprint called Icons which will focus on short biographies of famous historical  and contemporary people who have changed history or affected current and cultural events.  Icons shorts will be released bi-monthly and the first biographical short will be featuring Jesus which will  be written by Jay Parini.

 

I found this really interesting but a Reddit user compiled the different stages of a library book shelf’s life – There are nine stages which ranges from the order of a book and shelving it, which is named the Marriage stage, all the way to the final stage, The Life Cycle which is when a book is …

Interview with Macy Beckett + Giveaway

Today we are happy to have Macy Beckett, writer of the fun, sexy Sultry Springs series, visit us here at Book Lovers Inc.! Macy is stopping by to celebrate the release of the latest book in the series, Surrender to Sultry. So, let’s all give her a warm welcome! And remember to enter the giveaway at the end, too.

Stella: Hi Macy, welcome to Book Lovers Inc! Can you please tell us a bit about yourself?

Macy: You bet—I’m thrilled to be here! In a nutshell, I’m a former teacher who left the classroom to write hot, humorous romantic comedies. Penning novels is a lot more fun than teaching grammar, so I never looked back.

Macy: I’m a hybrid, a plantser. I begin with a short synopsis, then I …
