April Reading Review


For April we read Lie with Me by Stephanie Tyler.  This was the first book in her Shadow Force series.  Overall I really liked the book and when I finished the book I put the next one on hold.  I have since read both and I’m patiently waiting the release of the next book in the series.

For April we read Lady Vernon and Her Daughter by Jane Rubino and Caitlen Rubino-Bradway.  The Authors were present at the meeting and it was great being able to discuss with them the changes and choices they made with Jane Austen’s Lady Susan.

I checked out six books this month (as well as a bunch of DVDs and a magazine or two).  I broke down and got Lover Unleashed because there was no way I could wait for the paperback in November to read it, and it was great! I read two more of the books I checked out Promises in the Dark and Invincible and I’m currently reading Final Jeopardy. 

  1. Lover Unleashed by J.R. Ward
  2. Promises in the Dark by Stephanie Tyler
  3. Final Jeopardy : Man vs. Machine and the Quest to Know Everything by Stephen Baker
  4. Invincible by Sherrilyn Kenyon
  5. Can you get Hooked on Lip Balm by Perry Romanowski
  6. Pink Boots and a Machete: My Journey From NFL Cheerleader to National Geographic Explorer by Mireya Mayor


I finished six more books during this month. I took a break from my Navy SEALs obsession with the exception of Identity: Unknown.  Part of the reason is that I’ve been reading them on my Nook and I’ve caught up with the available books and part was that I just needed a break.  I read the first two books of the Stephanie Tyler series Shadow Force; these guys are military but gray ops kind of guys.  I also read the New York Bachelors series by Jule McBride which tells the story of three brothers who are all police officers in NYC.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!

Guest Post - The Power of the Written Word

While I am recovering from the stress of writing a final paper, new author, Gerald Freeman, has written a guest post.  His new book "Kill Daddy" is available as a ebook on Amazon.

THE POWER OF THE WRITTEN WORD VERSUS THE POWER OF THE UNSPOKEN WORD
The main objective for anyone involved in the arts is to get their message across, and everything revolves around the efficacy. Artists want to communicate with people, share ideas, passions and experiences. For many of us, the inspiration is life.

I have spent the last 20 years focusing on sculpture and writing, both mediums through which I hope to inspire and share my ideas about us and our role on this planet. I spent 10 years working on my technique in both areas, and a few years ago, I felt ready to put my work out there. I began with sculpture and have been very lucky. I have held some great exhibitions and my work has found a home in many parts of the world. Like writing, it is a gradual process and will take the time it tak…
