Other People’s Book Reviews

Thursdays Bite

typically a parnormal blog

I did it. I played hooky and I took yesterday off. It was a spur of the moment thing, so the blog didn’t get posted. Yesterday is supposed to be my paranormal book review, but I put off writing it. Why? Because I haven’t been able to squeeze a paranormal book into my reading schedule. So instead I am providing links to other people’s book reviews.

Just so you know I’m not typically a slacker, here is what happened this month to throw me off schedule. First of all I had my edits come through, and there were more things to do then I realized. Then I’m running CRW’s AOE contest. Wow! That takes a lot of work during January, and I didn’t realize how crazy it was going to be. And I’m judging a panel for RWA’s Golden Heart as well as a panel for CRW’s AOE. That is a ton of reading.

And even if I were reading the paranormal category (which I’m not, since that’s one of the categories I’m organizing) it would be unethical to post a review. So I’m reading five books that I can’t review. Oh and there is the CRW book club book, a nice contemporary suspense from Julie James, A Lot Like Love, not paranormal this month. What else… oh, family member in hospital for a week. Everything is fine now. And then there is just life. Crazy life.

So I couldn’t squeeze a parnormal book in this month, but here are are a few people who did. Hillary Seidl did a wonderful book review on The Fallen Queen by Jane Kindred. You can always find great Paranormal book reviews on RT, this week they reviewed Wild Cat by  Jennifer Ashley. And Literal Addiction reviewed Lara Adrian’s latest, Darker After Midnight.

I hope to be reading more paranormal after this month, so look for another review in February! Don’f forget to enter my contest HERE, you might win a copy of Little Red Riding Wolf or a Rocky Mountain Chocolates gift certificate

  1. Jessica, when you are at the top of your game, you must delegate! Well done.

  2. Brinda Berry

    It is perfectly acceptable to point out other reviews! It sounds like you have a lot going on right now. 🙂 Will your book be released in digital format?

    • Thanks Brinda. Yes, there is too much going on this month and every time I think I have a handle on it, something else pops up. And as for Little Red, yep-it will be only available in digital format. We discussed putting it into a print anthology with the sequel, but my editor said at this size and with a new author we should stick to digital. So print will have to wait for me!

  3. I can’t believe the stuff you’re getting done, Jessica. Never mind about what doesn’t get done. This is an enviable list, you’ve got. Way to go. Looking forward to your guest post on my blog in February.

    • Thanks Elaine. 🙂
      I am looking forward to visiting your site in February as well. I’m actually getting the hang of writing four to six blogs a week. It’s becoming easy, believe it or not. (I would never have believed it).

  4. Ditto what others said, Jessica. Final edits for a book about to launch. A crazy busy blog tour. Organizing a HUGE contest. Serving as a judge in two contests. Keeping up with your family, your blog, and a hospitalized family member. Oh! And, keeping up with your exercise program, multi-tasking with taking the pooch for a walk.


    Did someone pin an “Ask me! Ask me! I’ll say ‘yes!'” note on your back? You amaze me.

    • Must be that volunteering gene getting the best of me. Actually, I didn’t know I’d have a book release coming out at the same time as the contest. And you can never predict those family emergencies. I really thought January would be only about the AOE and my Bob Mayer class. CRAZY that it all is happening at once!

      Thanks to you and all my supportive friends. I am so lucky to have you all!
