Slowing down a notch

Hi folks, just a heads up to let you know that from this point on and until further notice, my book reviews (and other articles) will be posted on a more sporadic basis.  This is to free me up to read longer books, binge-read whole series of books, read unpublished fan fiction, and pursue other interests.  I remain open to requests for book reviews from authors/publishers.

Book Reviews Coming Soon!

Get ready folks! The next batch of books kicks off with a bad boy billionaire romance to potentially rival to 50 Shades.  This is swiftly followed by the psychological suspense What Did I Do, where a woman elopes to Sweden following the suspicious death of her husband.  Last but certainly not least, we have the bestselling dystopian novel Vox, where women are only allowed to speak 100 words per day.  Stay tuned!
