Halloweenity for Next Year




Cool or Wha…?



Teh Cute

Reading Update
The German by Lee Thomas. ebook. Very good historical gay suspense/horror set in small-town Texas during WWII, when the brutal murder of two boys has emotions running high against the Germans in town. Be prepared for a very disturbing read.
Nexus (Warder #5) by Mary Calmes. ebook. Good paranormal m/m romance about lawyer and warder Marcus going to Kentucky with his hearth, Joe, to visit Joe’s family, never expecting to run into demons while there. While I did enjoy this, at times I felt simultaneously as if I was missing part of the story, yet was being rushed through the story.
I Dare You by Tam Ames. free ebook short. Cute free short Halloween-themed m/m romance about a college student whose roommate dares him to go to a Halloween party and make a move on a guy he likes.
More Than Anything (More #1) by Shawn Lane. ebook short. Sweet short m/m romance about a college freshmen who thinks the hunky football player hitting on him is just doing it to make fun of him. I want to read more about these two!
Hot Ticket (Serving Love) by KA Mitchell. ebook. reread. Good m/m romance about two very different guys who meet while doing court-ordered community service. *waves at Slave Boy*
Foxe Hunt (Skyler Foxe Mysteries #2) by Haley Walsh. ebook. Good m/m romantic suspense about high school English teacher Skyler who gets involved in another murder investigation while trying to decide if he actually has a boyfriend or not. It wasn’t until I hit the cliffhanger ending that I remembered I wasn’t going to read this one until the next book came out. D’oh! Also, Skyler is starting to reach new levels of TSTL and I spent a fair amount of time wanting to shake him.
Crankset (Chainbreaker #2) by Kate Roman. ebook short. Good short m/m sequel to Chainbreaker, which unfortunately lacks the charm of the original. In this one, our San Francisco bike messenger and his Gulf War veteran boyfriend become frustrated about living behind a curtain in the corner of someone’s living room.
Night Terrors (Night Wardens #1) by Stephani Hecht. ebook. Pretty good m/m paranormal romance about a guy who has to leave college in order to fulfill his destiny as a Warder and protect humanity from a paranormal threat. This one needed a bit more polish and development to really shine.
For the Bite of It (Vampire in Exile) by Viki Lyn &Vina Grey. ebook. Meh paranormal m/m romance about an exiled vampire stripped of his powers and baking cupcakes in Tempe, Arizona, where he comes under suspicion of murder. Did the suspicious cop have to be so appealing and so deeply closeted? Although this is kind of choppy and sloppily edited (“scoured” instead of “scowled”?!), it was heading for three stars until it abruptly stopped, at the point of a critical conversation, feeling very unresolved. If this is supposed to be the first part of a serial, there’s sure not anything about it on Liquid Silver’s page for the book. And if there had been – I wouldn’t have purchased it.

  1. Linkity! YAH!Ohhh, must go enter Jenre’s contests as I’ve been dying to read one of Aleksandr Voinov’s books!

    And I really like the sound of More Than Anything, and since certain persons have been suggesting that I read some Shawn Lane I think I’ll start with this…as soon as it appears on ARe 🙂

    Chaos – that’s my favourite….umm…saying 🙂

  2. Chaos is speaking in tongue-twisters now!?

    And ewww that octopus shirt/blouse/whatever-the-hell-that-is.

    The pizza-sized Whopper in that picture looks so…clean and neat. Well, don’t they always look like that in pictures?

    Like orrania, I’m really interested with More Than Anything now! I shall patiently wait for it to appear over at Amazon.

  3. The sharing features are still available in the new Google Reader, but you have to go to the settings to add them. I know I never used them, so it didn’t bother me to see them gone, but the functionality is there to be added if you need it.

    Also, the Anne Rice / Stephanie Meyers thing is hilarious. I love vampire stories and really dislike Twilight, but the arguments they create are such a wonderful waste of time!

  4. You find some really odd “or wha?” stuff. Just sayin’.

    I don’t think Ms. Rice should trash talk, personally. I’m not a huge fan of Ms. Meyer either, but really. Professional courtesy there. Or at least professional shutting-the–up. 😉

    Also: a Tardis case? I think I know what my next knitted project will be.

  5. Eeeks! Those Cute links are awesome! That baby elephant has fuzz, aww. And how much do I love the Momma Cats carrying their babies around??!

    Mmmmm…g/f pumpkin bars. I’m noticing that traditional g/f ingredients are now being stacked in the shelves of conventional grocery stores, making life so much easier for making things from scratch.

    Making mittens now!

  6. *raises hand* Uh, actually I was surprised. But I’ve been having particular trouble this week keeping track of which day I’m on. 🙂

    Looks like more great links, I’ll have to come back when I’m a bit more awake.

  7. Closer to the age of Principal Vernon? NOOOOO!!!

    *ahem* not that I remember when The Breakfast Club first came out. Or that it was a very generous present to get the VHS tape for my birthday.

    *wanders off muttering* Now where’d I put my glasses again? And why won’t those darn kids get off the lawn?

  8. If I had read linkity before now, I would’t have gone ‘really??’ about two hours ago when hubby told me daylight savings time was going into effect tonight.

    I got a chuckle out of the free ranging erections, though I’ll admit I have a fondness for them 😉

  9. Hmmm… wine velveeta. 🙁

    I guess I need to check my peanut butter supply.

    Love the kids’ costumes!

    Cool video of the Condit Dam.

    LOL! No words for the duck penis research.

    The cheetahs look pretty possessive of their pumpkins.

    When you figure it out, let us know Chaos.
