On the Hunt | Tracking an Epic Romance

  Isn’t there no better feeling than finding a book that’s like magic in your hands.  A story that, from page one, sucks you in and holds you hostage.  One that when you get to the end and you can feel your heart squeezing, and your soul aching, and you just clutch the book to your chest because you know that physically putting it down would be like ripping off the toughest of band-aids. I’ve felt that way about only a handful of books and the sad fact is that, despite rereads, I’ll never get that initial feeling again.  There is literally [ Read More of this Review ]

Reconnecting with old Friends, Bibliophile style!

    I’m sure that this is a post that most of you have experienced.  It’s a post about those long ended series that you loved so much.  The ones that you think about frequently and find yourself missing.  The books that you still, even 2 or so years later, tell yourself that you just wish there was something more.  They meant so much to you, and when you came to the end you just were not ready to say goodbye to either the characters, or to the world.
