My Quickie Book Reviews:

Vampire in the Lemon Grove

The Invisible Library

A Murder in Time

Across the Web:

I’m a huge fan of Tom and Lorenzo Fabulous and Opinionated  It’s a dedicated to fashion and read carpets, but they also do some wonderful analysis and critiques of tv shows and movies based on the costuming. If you are a fan of Mad Men, read their analysis of it via the costumes. Its amazing. They also do a smaller version of this for American Gods the TV show based on the Neil Gaiman novel.  Click here, here, and here to read their wrap up costume posts for the season.

In the Blogisphere:

This is a fun post about Favorite Female Book Characters.

And a lovely discussion about what writers do to themselves.

    1. Aww, thanks! I’ve just been consuming romances lately. And that is why I’m so close to reaching my Goodreads goal. I need to get back on track with the book Riot Challenge. Like you I just need to keep on keepin’ on.
