SKINNY by Diana Spechler (A TLC Tour)novelwhoreSkinnyTLC Book Tours

With summer/swimsuit season around the corner (though that corner is looking farrrrrrrrrrr away on this dismal day!) and more and more health issues stemming from eating habits, weight – and the effect on one’s health – is consistently a hot issue.  While much has been known about anorexia and bulimia, compulsive binging seems to be […](image)

Book Club Brunch FunnovelwhoreSTRANGERS AT THE FEASTbook club!

Thu, 24 Mar 2011 19:36:26 +0000

Our first brunch/book club adventure. Clever & witty name tk. Two of my favorite past times/hobbies/activities/passions are books and brunch.  Put them together and ta-da – what a fabulous day!  I met the lovely ladies Nicole (@nicolebo) of Linus’s Blanket and Erica (@EricaBrooke) of Harper Perennial fame  at V Bar in the East Village for […](image)

Flying away with ONE BIRD’S CHOICEnovelwhoreONE BIRD'S CHOICE

Wed, 16 Mar 2011 13:46:57 +0000

As usual, I’m so grateful to TLC Book Tours for giving me reason to update my blog!  And this time, it’s to take a look at ONE BIRD’S CHOICE, a memoir from “an overeducated, underemployed twenty-something, living in the big city in a bug-filled basement apartment and struggling to make ends meet” who ends up […](image)

My “stand” on MAJOR PETTIGREW’S LAST STANDnovelwhoreMajor-Pettigrew-pb-cover-lgTLC Book ToursMajor Pett - UK cover

Mon, 31 Jan 2011 12:55:22 +0000

I don’t know what I had expected when picking up MAJOR PETTIGREW’S LAST STAND, but what I found was a comforting read, similar to going back to my parent’s house – it’s welcoming and warm; almost from a different time – and you feel right at home with Major Pettigrew and Jasmina Ali. The characters […](image)

Light Weekend Reading: HEART OF THE MATTER by Emily GiffinnovelwhoreHeart-of-the-Matter

Thu, 27 Jan 2011 03:21:11 +0000

Actually, “light weekend reading” may be incorrect, because even though I’d definitely classify HEART OF THE MATTER as chick-lit, the subject of infidelity is never light or easy. Emily Giffin’s books are as recognizable by their pastel hues as they are for covering topics you’d expect in chick-lit (I don’t mean this to be derogatory; […](image)

Do you all have that list of authors in your head that you’d like to read, when given the moment?  Well, due to a couple strong recommendations (I wish I could elaborate on the source – if it was you please say so!), author Kate Atkinson was always on my radar as someone to pick […](image)

Page update alert – Southern Lit Officially live!novelwhore

Thu, 18 Nov 2010 16:23:47 +0000

I had so many wonderful suggestions for Southern literature when I posted my “Road(trip) to a Southern Belle” list that I was inspired to make it an official reading list! Check out my newly created page: Would love more reading suggestions, and still working on that boring “Southern Lit List” name – taking witty […](image)

Even though I work in publishing, it’s important to note I am not an editor and don’t work with agents outside of the marketing realm – I don’t handle book acquisitions and rarely have the chance to read a manuscript or chime in on the purchasing decisions. I don’t get to hear from authors before […](image)

Blast to the Past – NYC stylenovelwhorelost lustreTLC Book Tours

Wed, 17 Nov 2010 14:41:02 +0000

I’ve been living in NYC for well over a year now and I feel pretty at home in my ‘hood – which I’d consider to be the area below 14th Street and above Canal. Having lived in the East Village and now in SoHo, I have the East -> West covered.  Once hailing from St. Marks […](image)

Wed, 03 Nov 2010 02:39:50 +0000

Well I guess it’s not technically a genre, and I’m on the tailend of this book buzz, but I’ve only recently read ROOM and STILL MISSING and am all kidnapped-out. Getting kidnapped has always been an irrational fear of mine – I shudder at the sight of vans without windows (STILL MISSING really reminded me […](image)
