…w my ‘Month in Review‘ 2010 posts go HERE To view my ‘Month in Review‘ 2009 posts go HERE In My Mailbox (Retired) Hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren A weekly meme where we explore the contents of our mailbox and share it with others. NB: I do not participate in this meme any more – however, I will leave the link below if you want to view the archives. Also, I do have a “Books Received” button on the…

The Bloggers Bookshelf

…antasy, though there is some cross over. I order my books in alphabetical order of author, and, as I said, my shelves are double stacked. To make it easier for me to see at a glance what books I’ve read and which I’ve not, I label my books; red for review copies, and yellow for my own books. I also label debut authors purple for the Debut Authors Challenge 2010 held by The Story Siren. Because of double stacking and not being able to see what…

…f the books I’ve bought – would this be something you’d be interested in seeing? If you didn’t want a vlog, would you still like a list of some of the books I’ve received/bought? I stopped In My Mailbox as I thought a post every week was a bit much, but once a month sounds good – what do you think? Anyway, July wasn’t a great month with regards to the amount of books read – life just got in the way…

…mber on it. I also like to help promote other blogs and I think a blog is a great way to keep a record of what I have read (I wish I would have been doing it for years). I participate in a few memes. A particular favorite is Mailbox Monday because I like to share the wonderful books I’ve acquired (I especially love buying books)! I participate in blog tours with Other Shelf Tours and was lucky enough to do an interview with author Frank…

All About Charming Alice - J. Arlene Culiner

…s – most of them pretty awful: I consider them my apprenticeship work. What was the last book you enjoyed and why? Last week a little book – Letters to Dr. Du Bimo, written by Sheila Clapkin – arrived in my mailbox, and I was asked to review it. I think we all open books with some trepidation on these occasions: what do we do if we hate them? What do we say if they’re badly written? Imagine my pleasure when I was pulled…

Les-Miserables-Movie-Poster

…every turn his options are thwarted by this albatross around his neck. It is only when a kindly priest takes him and gives him shelter, does his life change though at first it seems he has resigned himself to living with the label he has been assigned. Jean Valjean steals the silverware from the priest and is instantly caught. When he is brought back to the church, but rather than the let the police take him back into custody, the priest…

…alking stereotype, he absolutely wasn’t. Hero and heroine have full lives and commitments beyond each other. Also, Cameron’s workload was appropriate for her position, and she – gasp! – actually did her job. It wasn’t just a label to flesh out her character. My gripe with the book is that James’ writing style generally takes me a couple of chapters to get used to. Once I’m in, I’m in, but I’ve always struggled to be immediately engaged at the…
