Looks like The Romance Reader is looking for reviewers - specifially Chick Lit reviewers. Although if I know the editor, she probably wouldn't mind more reviewers period - regardless of the subgenre. If you're interested, check out the FAQ page.
As reported in a previous blog entry, I'm dieting. I have purposely not stepped on a scale since I started this grand experiment for fear of getting discouraged. But, there have been some results. It's amazing what happens when one just cuts out fast food. The Boyfriend, bless his heart, told me this weekend that my "love handles" were smaller.
OK, so that's not terribly romantic - but dang, I'm so happy!
Now if I could just get myself on a regular exercise schedule all would be right with the world.
I bit the bullet and placed in order with Amazon yesterday. Here's what I ordered:
I loved the first book in this series - Loaded - mainly because it had a bit of an edge to it. Sort of like a crime noir novel told from a women's perspective.
Kandel debuted last year with I Dreamed I Married Perry Mason - a book I read stictly for the title. It was one of my notable reads of 2004. Sort of a mix between cozy mystery and crime noir. This time, the author turns her eye from Erle Stanley Gardner to Nancy Drew.
I love Levine's Jaine Austen series, mainly because they are fun, quick reads. She's also the only mystery author I know who can write a "shorter" book (250 pages) and not skimp on character development, mystery, red herrings and suspects. Really looking forward to this one.
