Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors Read In 2012

Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors Read In 2012

Top Ten Tuesday – is an original feature – weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish and exists so that everyone can share their love of lists with other bookish peeps!    For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate click here! Julie’s Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors Read In 2012   Personally, I think the first two, Cassandra Rose Clarke and CJ Roberts, while writing VASTLY different things, are both very talented writers.  I think out of the entire list, these two ladies blow the others away.  Not to take anything away from the authors listed below them, but if anyone could write literary erotica, it’s CJ Roberts, her books are – Just. That. Good.  Not many people can pen a train-wreck of a relationship (and that’s putting it mildly) and have you loving the bad guy so completely by the end.  And… Read more »

BLOG TOUR: First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch

Tour Schedule First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch “What if history didn’t happen that way … the first time?” Garison Fitch was one of the most revered scientists in the Soviet Americas until he left fame behind to work on a secret project in his log cabin in the mountains of Marx. But something went wrong. Instead of traveling interdimentionally, Garison has traveled through time … twice. Now, he’s in something called “The United States of America” and a woman he’s never met before is calling herself his wife. It it a hoax? Or, has he somehow changed history? If so, can he return the world to what he believes is “normal”, or must he live in this strange world he created?

Retrograde: Week In Review #1

Retrograde: Week In Review #1

Retrograde is going to be a weekly meme for me on Sunday where I look back on a book I love and put it out there to the world, as well as look back on the previous week’s activities.  I’m sure there are a ton of characters who qualify as new adult, but they are really hard to think up!  Mostly literature has passed this age group over, so I’m going to pick an obscure one.  Fallen Dragon by Peter F. Hamilton. First of all – this is space opera.  If you’re never read space opera it’s like fantasy in space – or at least with lots of futuristic elements. In the case of Fallen Dragon we have two major plot lines  – one is the soldier Lawrence Newton (he’s not new adult – he’s seasoned killer with lots of regrets for how he’s lived out his youth and he’s… Read more »
