Five Books Everyone Should Read: Author Sarah Mayberry

5 Books Project

Five Books Everyone Should Read is a new feature we’re running in 2015. We’ve asked some of our favorite authors, readers and bloggers to share five books that touched them or have stayed with them throughout the years. This is going to be hard. My 5 books probably changes with the years, so I’ll try not to feel too guilty about including some books and leaving others out. I tend to read across a lot of genres, and I started my reading life with a lot of fantasy novels, inspired by The … [Read more...]

Holly: I didn't get a chance to read as much as I would have liked this week. Things were crazy in my personal life, plus I've been trying out new e-reading apps (Nook, Kindle, UB Reader, Google Play Books, etc), which means I was switching back and forth so much I only partially read a lot of books. (I hope to do a post about my experiences  -and the pros and cons - of each...someday.) I read Suddenly One Summer by Julie James, which prompted a re-read of Love Irresistibly  (there was an … [Read more...]

On Jane of Dear Author Writing as Jen Frederick

DA Reviewer Disclosure

In 2013 I discovered new adult author Jen Frederick. Her first book was problematic for me, but I absolutely loved her second. Over the last two years I've read most of her other works. I also followed her on Twitter and exchanged a few reviewer/author emails with her. Based on her familiarity with authors online, and the community as a whole, I suspected she was an author or blogger writing under a pseudonym. Yesterday, Jane Litte of Dear Author confirmed my suspicions when she came out as … [Read more...]
