Book Blurb:

Crescent City, 1934

In Crescent City, the dead are always close.

At the point of death, people can choose to become Ghosts, tethered to the living. They can remain with their loved ones as invisible companions—or in the case of Crescent City’s ghostly mayor, remain in office forever.

Being a P.I. in Crescent City isn’t easy or glamorous. Luckily Lola Starke has an edge: her Ghost, Aubrey, who can gather valuable clues from other Ghosts in the Ether. When they accept a simple missing-persons case, they’re drawn into a complicated web of lies and double-crosses that involves the most …

Book Lovers for the Prevention of Supporting Character Neglect: The Potterverse

Time again for more Book Lovers for the Prevention of Supporting Character Neglect! Where Book Lovers from across the world stand in solidarity for the supporting cast. Those individuals that make the story and keep us coming back even when the protagonist needs a good smack (cough Harry Potter cough). Hear our anthem! Because everyone deserves top billing now and then.

As I just-so-happened to mention, certain protagonists tend to be extremely smackable, and all-around unlikeable. Which is exactly why we’re diving back into The Potterverse. Because really, who read Harry Potter for, well, Harry Potter? Nobody, that’s who.

Marlene: Have you started drinking early? Do you really want to dive into the Potterverse sober? I can, but it’s painful. Really. Let me start.

Jackie: Go ahead. That was too long ago for specifics for me.

Marlene: The butcher’s bill at the last battle was much too high. To begin with. …

Sometimes love is an accident.

This time, it’s a strategy.

Miss Minerva Lane is a quiet, bespectacled wallflower, and she wants to keep it that way. After all, the last time she was the center of attention, it ended badly–so badly that she changed her name to escape her scandalous past. Wallflowers may not be the prettiest of blooms, but at least they don’t get trampled. So when a handsome duke comes to town, the last thing she wants is his attention.

But that is precisely what she gets.

Because Robert Blaisdell, the Duke of Clermont, is not fooled. When Minnie figures out what he’s up to, he realizes there is more to than her spectacles and her quiet ways. And he’s determined to lay her every secret bare before …

Book Lovers Book Club: September 2013 Selections

Good morning,

I hope you have had a good monday so far.

Below is the list of September titles for voting. This month’s theme is Romance:

The Spymaster’s Lady by Joanna Bourne (Goodreads Link)


She’s braved battlefields. She’s stolen dispatches from under the noses of heads of state. She’s played the worldly courtesan, the naive virgin, the refined British lady, even a Gypsy boy. But Annique Villiers, the elusive spy known as the Fox Cub, has finally met the one man she can’t outwit …


British spymaster Robert Grey must enter France and bring back the brilliant, beautiful — and dangerous — Fox Cub. His duty is to capture her and her secrets for England. When the two natural enemies are thrown into prison, they forge an uneasy alliance to break free. But their pact is temporary and betrayal seems inevitable. They flee, pursued …

Sunday Cravings

Hello Book Lovers! I’m still filling in for Anna while she’s buried in wedding preparations. Maybe I should have paid more attention when she told us she was taking a leave of absence from the blog, because I really have no idea how long she’ll be gone….

On the bright side, this is motivating me to look into blogging apps. Because now I can’t just not post when traveling. (Which is why there are random weeks where I am not snarking at you all. Do you miss me when I am gone?) Blogging from my iPad’s mobile browser is an exercise in frustration. Any suggestions? There appear to be a million of them, and the reviews are not anywhere approaching helpful.

On to this week’s Cravings! Not much to choose from. Which is probably for the best. I’m busy re-reading Magic Rises for the umpteenth time.

Around The Bookish World: Week-In-Review

Welcome to this week’s edition of Bookish news and it has been pretty interesting with some surprising announcements, including Amazon’s Jeff Bezo’s purchase of The Washington Post, 500 fairytales being discovered in Germany and CBS’ development of a WIZARD OF OZ medical show (yes that is correct!) As well as more book and publishing news!


Well, this news caught quite a few people by surprise and it probably brought on a few shudders by some, when Jeff Bezo announced that he is buying The Washington Post. In a letter to the employees of the paper, Bezo stated that ‘So, let me start with something critical. The values of The Post do not need changing. The paper’s duty will remain to its readers and not to the private interests of its owners. We will continue to follow the truth wherever it leads, and we’ll work hard not to make mistakes. When …
