Throwback Thursday: I Feel Bad about My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman by Nora Ephron


Author: Nora Ephron
First published in 2006 by 

The woman who brought us "When Harry Met Sally . . ., Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail, "and" Bewitched, " and the author of best sellers "Heartburn, Scribble Scribble, " and "Crazy Salad, " discusses everything--from how much she hates her purse to how much time she spends attempting to stop the clock: the hair dye, the treadmill, the lotions and creams that promise to slow the aging process but never do. Oh, and she can't stand the way her neck looks. But her dermatologist tells her there's no quick fix for that. 
Ephron chronicles her life as an obsessed cook, passionate city dweller, and hapless parent. She recounts her anything-but-glamorous days as a White House intern during the JFK years ("I am probably the only young woman who ever worked in the Kennedy White House that the President did not make a pass at") and shares how she fell in and out of love with Bill Clinton--from a distance, of course. But mostly she speaks frankly and uproariously about life as a woman of a certain age. 



I'm sorry to say that I didn't finish listening to this audiobook.  I know that Nora Ephron is loved by many people. When she passed away in 2012, the literary world felt the loss greatly.  She gave us wonderful movies and I'm sure other great books, but I just wasn't feeling it with this one. I was looking forward to reading I Feel Bad about My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman.  I was hoping for funny commentary on what is was like to get older; but I felt like all I was getting was either a lecture of complaining.  

This is the first set of essays I have read by Ms. Ephron, but I find I prefer Erma Bombeck's offerings a lot more.  I really didn't find much amusing in the essays that I did listen to.  Not even the essay on "Parenting" was enough to make me want to keep listening.  It wasn't funny. Instead I felt like the parents of today were being chided for taking active interests in their kids activities and lives.  I think I will stick with watching Ms. Ephron's movies.

The Good Girls by Sara Shepard

Author: Sara Shepard
Publisher: HarperTeen
Date of publication: June 2015

Mackenzie, Ava, Caitlin, Julie, and Parker have done some not-so-perfect things. Even though they all talked about killing rich bully Nolan Hotchkiss, they didn't actually go through with it. It's just a coincidence that Nolan died in exactly the way they planned . . . right? Except Nolan wasn't the only one they fantasized about killing. When someone else they named dies, the girls wonder if they're being framed. Or are they about to become the killer's next targets?


It had been a while since I read the first book, The Perfectionists, so it took a bit to re-orient myself to The Good Girls.  Thankfully, the author did a good job of covering ground from the first book in the first couple of chapters.  This one pretty much picks up where the first one left off.  In The Good Girls, the five girls are back and someone is targeting the rest of the "kill list" from the first book.  Bodies seem to be dropping everywhere and the girls are once again suspects.

I thought this was a great sequel to the first book.  I had a hard time figuring out the solution.  There are a lot of twists to the story.  I won't give away any of the plot.  I just can't ruin it for anyone!  The ending was a major "Wait, what?"  moment for me.  Thinking back, I honestly never saw it coming until the reveal.  You must read this one just for the ending alone!  I'm not sure if this is meant to be a duology or if there will be another book in the series.  The epilogue does leave an opening for a third book.  It will be interesting to see what comes next if there is a third one!  If you are a fan of the Pretty Little Liars series, you will love this one. Check it out!

Blog Tour: Come Away with Me by Karma Brown

Author: Karma Brown
Publisher: Mira (Harlequin)
Date of publication: August 2015


A heartbreaking and emotional story of love and loss, COME AWAY WITH ME is one woman’s discovery that life is still worth living, even if it’s not the life you planned.

One minute, Tegan Lawson has everything she could hope for: an adoring husband, Gabe, and a baby on the way. The next, a patch of black ice causes a devastating accident that will change her life in ways she never could have imagined.

Tegan is consumed by grief—not to mention anger toward Gabe, who was driving on the night of the crash. But just when she thinks she’s hit rock bottom, Gabe reminds her of their Jar of Spontaneity, a collection of their dream destinations and experiences, and so begins an adventure of a lifetime.

From the bustling markets of Thailand to the flavors of Italy to the ocean waves in Hawaii, Tegan and Gabe embark on a journey to escape the tragedy and search for forgiveness. But they soon learn that grief follows you no matter how far away you run, and that acceptance comes when you least expect it. Heartbreaking, hopeful and utterly transporting, COME AWAY WITH ME is an unforgettable debut and a luminous celebration of the strength of the human spirit.



 I'll start by saying that Come Away with Me is not an easy book to read.  What I mean is that this is a very emotional and intense story about loss and grief.  While it is a pretty quick read, I found myself having to put the book down at certain parts to take a break.  In the book, Tegan was 6 months pregnant when she was in a car accident and her life was forever changed. When her husband reminds her about their jar of spontaneity, she decides to do three of the things in the jar in order to find herself again.  The slips of papr take her on a journey across the world where she slowly begins to deal with the grief of losing her family.  

Being a mother,I found this book just so heartbreaking, yet filled with hope.  The loss of a child is something I hope to never have to experience.  Going on this journey with Tegan was emotionally intense and I found myself tearing up on more than one occasion.  I thought the author did a wonderful job of showing the reality of emotion that such a loss can cause.  There is a twist in the end that wasn't too hard to see in the beginning, but that makes the book that much more bittersweet.  I think that this is a wonderful debut by this author and look forward to seeing what she comes up with next.  I will warn you though, have the tissues ready!

August Mini Musings



The Silenced - This was another good installment in the Krewe of Hunters series.  It's the 15th  book.  I did enjoy the mystery and was surprised at the solution.  The romance was just so-so, though and felt a little forced. I could have enjoyed the book even without the romance. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Hard to Let Go- The final installment in the Hard Ink series.  I enjoyed Beckett and Kat's story.  They have been circling each other for weeks. They were great together and it was great to see Beckett finally open up. It is hard to believe that the entire series took place over only a couple of weeks. The whole story arc was wrapped up nicely with a great epilogue in the end.  It's sad to see the series end.  I have enjoyed the journey with this group of guys and their loves.

On the Hunt - Honestly, I only read one of the novellas in this anthology.  I got it mainly for Dianne Duvall's Phantom Embrace.  It's part of the Immortal Guardian series.   I had to see what happened to Yuri. So sad, but such a wonderful love story! The immortal guardian series totally rocks!

Books We Didn't FInish - August Edition


The Hand that Feeds You -This is like one of the hottest books of the summer.  It's on every must read list.  I didn't care for it.  I didn't buy the fact that these women were totally duped by this guy.  Most women who online date are freakishly cautious and online stalk a guy until they know everything about every person in their life.  I just wasn't buying the story.

Challenger Deep -This  was a book I got as a review copy.  It was also on a big display at the library so I was kind of expecting big things from this book.  I really, really didn't like it.  I was very confused from the very beginning as to what kind of book this was supposed to be; modern day or pirates?  Then there was this alliteration thing that was super annoying.  Just definitely not the book for me.

Tiny Pretty Things -I've read a few other ballerina books and I've always enjoyed them.  The dancing and the drama is always appealing.   I had hoped I'd like this one.  Tiny Pretty Things never captured or held my interest.  There were too many other books calling my name.

Station Eleven - Once again, this was a book that just didn't capture my interest.  It seemed like the kind of book I would really like and I would be really into.  I think I'm kind of burnt out on the post apocalyptic thing.  I don't want to think about a super flu wiping out humanity right now...it's just not working for me.




Killing Monica:  Being a Sex in the City fan, I thought I would like this book.  I couldn't make it past the divorce party scene.  The main character Pandy was annoying as were all of her friends.  I think if I read the word Monica one more time, I was going to scream.  Parody or not, it wasn't funny.

Book of Numbers - This was a book that I knew was just not going to hold my interest.  I tried the first disc, but gave up.  I was really bored. Besides it  is a really long book and  unless the book sucks me right in, I don't want to waste my time.

The Precipice by Paul Doiron

by:  Paul Doiron
published by:  Minotaur Books
publish date:  June 16, 2015

When two young female hikers disappear in the Hundred Mile Wilderness—the most remote stretch along the entire two-thousand mile Appalachian Trail—Maine game warden Mike Bowditch joins the search to find them. When two corpses are discovered—the bones picked clean by coyotes—rumors spread that the women were stalked and killed by the increasingly aggressive canines.   His new girlfriend, the brilliant but volatile biologist Stacey Stevens,  insists coyotes merely scavenged the bodies after the women were murdered. When Stacey herself disappears on the outskirts of the Hundred Mile Wilderness, Bowditch realizes that locating her means he must also discover the truth behind what happened to the two hikers. Were the young women really killed by coyotes or, as Stacey insisted, were they murdered by the most dangerous animal in the North Woods?

A few years ago I watched a documentary about the Appalachian Trail, The AT, and the people that hike the entire thing.  It looked so awesome.  There are people that take off for like a year to hike the entire thing from Georgia to Maine.  It's crazy, but people do it all the time.  

Anyway, this book was about that, these two women that were hiking The AT and go missing.  After search teams are formed, their bodies are discovered.  It's theorized that coyotes stalked and killed the women, based on journal entries and the condition of their bodies.  However, Mike Bowditch's girlfriend, Stacey Stevens doesn't believe that.  She knows they were murdered and she's intent on proving that.   Mike, of course, is caught up in investigating the case from his own angle and doesn't realize the trouble that she is in before it's too late.  

I love this series.  Paul Doiron is a great writer.  He does a great job portraying Maine and showing it's not all just lighthouses and lobsters.  I really enjoy all the deep woods descriptions too.   This is a great mystery series and I highly recommend it.

Blog Tour: A Character Interview and Review of Shadows Strike by Dianne Duvall



Today, we are excited to have an interview with a couple of characters from Dianne Duvall's exciting series The Immortal Guardians.  They are here to help promote Dianne's latest book, Shadows Strike.  Enjoy it after my thoughts on the book.



Publisher: Kensington

Date of publication: August 2015

The Immortal Guardians protect the innocent in secret. Sometimes the secret gets out…


U.S. law enforcement agent Heather Lane can read minds. But not the future. The dream of battle and blood that recurs every night must be a fluke, some obscure terror from her own mind. What its significance might be, she can’t guess: an attack from seven psychotic vampires at once, only separated from nightmare by an eighth very different immortal. A handsome, brave man fighting at her side, a man she misses when she wakes.


Then the dream comes true. Heather is flung into a war between predators and protectors of humanity, the man from her dreams beside her again. Except now that she’s awake, she isn’t sure she can trust Ethan, or the shadow organization he represents. The U.S. military doesn’t trust either of them. But against an onslaught of evil like the one that’s coming, it will take everything they have just to survive…


My thoughts:


I'm not even sure I need to write a review for this one because you all know what I will say already.  It's amazing, sexy, fast paced, and just plain fun! You know when I get a new book by Ms. Duvall, I am going to just devour it!  Shadows Strike was no exception. The story picks up about a year after the last book.  It was fast paced and full of twists.  


I loved Ethan and Heather together!  They were just too cute.  It was so fun to see Ethan finally find a love.  It's funny that Ethan kept saying that his gift was nothing special.  I thought it was pretty cool.  Imagine being able to remember everything and have the added benefit of not having your mind manipulated ever.  I'd say that was pretty cool.  I also loved seeing Adira interact with the warriors.  She is too cute.  I can't wait to watch her grow up!


All I can say about this book and series is go buy it and read it!  You won't be sorry!


An interview with Zach and Lisette:



Thank you for joining me!  I’m very happy to be here at From the TBR Pile, celebrating the release of SHADOWS STRIKE, the sixth book in my Immortal Guardians series.  For those who haven’t yet picked up a copy or who aren’t familiar with my series, I thought I would give you a glimpse of Ethan and Heather—the hero and heroine—and the rest of my Immortal Guardians crew in a character interview.  (Also, if you’re new to the series, don’t worry.  Each book can be read as a stand-alone.  You’ll just be more familiar with the secondary characters if you read them in order.)

Today Sheldon, one of the mortals in my series (and a favorite of myself and many readers, thanks to the comic relief he provides) will be interviewing Zach, the dark and powerful winged hero of the last book (Night Unbound) and his heroine, Lisette.  Both play prominent roles in SHADOWS STRIKE.

Sheldon:  Thanks for agreeing to an interview, guys.

Lisette:  Of course.

Zach:  Why are we doing another one of these?  Did the last one not suffice?

Sheldon:  It, uh . . . it . . . sufficed.

Zach:  *arches a brow*

Sheldon:  Well, the whole purpose of these interviews is to make the humans down at the Network feel more comfortable around you immortals and you MIGHT have come across a little . . . scary in the last interview.

Zach:  To whom?  To you?

Sheldon:  Yes.

Zach:  You asked me if you could climb onto my back so I could fly you around like Superman.

Lisette:  *lips twitching*  I forgot about that.

Sheldon:  I asked you HYPOTHETICALLY how you would respond if SOMEONE were to ask you if he could do that.

Zach:  And I offered you an honest answer.

Sheldon:  *mutters something under his breath*

Zach:  I heard that.

Sheldon:  I know.  *raises his brows*  Any chance you’ll change your mind?

Zach:  *baleful stare*

Sheldon:  *shoulders slump*  Right.  What about shapeshifting?  Heather said you shifted into a HUGE lion in front of her.

Zach:  *exchanges an amused glance with Lisette*  Yes, I did.

Sheldon:  Will you do that for me?

Zach:  No.

Sheldon:  Spoilsport. 

Zach:  It’s not a parlor trick, Sheldon.

Sheldon:  That’s what David keeps telling me.  Come on.  I’ll bet Lisette would read my mind if I asked her to.

Lisette:  No I wouldn’t.

Sheldon:  *surprised*  You wouldn’t?  Why not?

Lisette:  Because I’ve read your mind before and there’s too much freaky stuff up there.

Sheldon:  Freaky how?

Zach:  *looks askance at Lisette*  Freaky sex stuff?

Lisette:  Yes.  A LOT of it.

Sheldon:  *grins unrepentantly*  That’s what Heather said.  I don’t see what’s so freaky about it.

Lisette:  Well, I’m certainly not going to explain it to you.  So shall we move on? 

Sheldon:  Fine.  What do you think of Heather? 

Lisette:  I like her.

Zach:  As do I.  I think she has handled her introduction into the world of Immortal Guardians, gifted ones, and vampires admirably.

Lisette:  *grins*  I think your shapeshifting might have thrown her a bit.

Zach:  *laughs*  Just a bit.  But she had already been through quite a lot by then.  And I think her passing herself off as a FACS specialist and earning a living using her gift was exceptionally clever.

Sheldon:  Okay, explain to me what exactly that means, because I don’t remember. 

Zach:  She tells the military and law enforcement agencies who enlist her services that she is using the Facial Action Coding System to determine whether or not someone is telling the truth.

Lisette:  So they think she’s studying minute changes in facial expressions when she’s actually reading minds.

Zach:  As I said, very clever.

Sheldon:  It is.  Most gifted ones hide the special abilities they’re born with for their own safety.  Yet she was able to find a way to make a career out of hers without falling under suspicion.  What do you think about her and Ethan getting together?

Lisette:  I think they’re perfect for each other.  She’s telepathic and—

Zach:  Ethan’s head is too hard to read.

Sheldon:  Why is it so hard to read his mind?  Even the elders can’t do it without causing him incredible pain.

Zach:  *shrugs*  Just not much up there to read, I guess.

Lisette:  *laughs and punches him in the shoulder*  Be nice.  *to Sheldon*  Ethan’s mind is just wired differently.  It has something to do with the gift he was born with.

Sheldon:  And what gift is that?

Lisette:  If you don’t know, you’ll have to ask Ethan.

Sheldon:  Oh, come on.  Why are you guys always so reluctant to tell me your gifts?

Zach:  Because you pester us for demonstrations when we do.

Sheldon:  *sighs*  You’re no fun.

Lisette:  *casts Zach a flirtatious glance*  Actually, Zach can be quite fun on occasion.

Sheldon:  Don’t flirt with him!  His eyes will start to glow and . . .  Ah, hell.  His eyes are glowing.

Zach:   *stares at Lisette with eyes that now hold a golden glow*  Sheldon . . .

Sheldon:  You’re going to ask me to wrap up the interview early, aren’t you?

Zach:  Why don’t we wrap this interview up early?

Sheldon:  I still have dozens of questions to ask you.

Lisette:  *strokes Zach’s face*

Zach:  Just what I was thinking.

Sheldon:  What was?  That I need to ask you more questions?

Zach:  I enjoyed it as well.

Sheldon:  You aren’t listening to a thing I’m saying, are you?  Enjoyed what?  The interview?  Wait.  Are you talking to me?  Or are you two doing the telepathic thing?  You aren’t feeling each other up mentally, are you?

Lisette:  Goodbye, Sheldon.

Sheldon:  *mutters as he rises*  And you think MY sex stuff is freaky.  *louder*  Just don’t get naked until I’m out the door.

Blog Tour: Review & Excerpt of Gypsy Heat by Jillian Neal

Author: Jillian Neal 
Publisher: Realm Press
Release Date: 8/25/2015


Nadya Montgomery was Gypsy Beach’s own personal wild child. There was nothing she wouldn’t do, especially when it came to Grady Havens. Until disaster struck and tore them apart. Desperate to protect Grady, she ran away from everything and everyone she’d ever known.

Fourteen years later, Nadya returns to the beach to try to rebuild some semblance of her life out of her ex-husband’s shadow, but that means returning to her past and seeing Grady Havens again.
Now a charter boat captain constantly trying to put his past behind him, Grady doesn’t know what to make of Nadya’s return. All he knows is she was always meant to be his, and he intends to make his claim. He wants her back in his life and most certainly back in his bed.

When his entire family is threatened, he’s caught between rekindling his relationship with Nadya and protecting what belongs to him.

Together they try to rebuild what always should have been, but their pasts are determined to keep them ensnared. As passions ignite between them, they realize that even Grady may not be able to keep her safe this time.

Gypsy Heat is the third book in the Gypsy Beach series.  The story involves Nadya and Grady.  They were childhood friends and teenage lovers until a tragedy made her run from the only home she has ever known.  Now, 14 years later, she is back after having escaped an abusive marriage.  Her plan is to regroup and plan her future.  If she can only avoid Grady Havens while doing it.  But the magic of Gyspy Beach has other plans and the two soon find themselves back in each other's arms. And let's just say there were enough sparks to last for many 4th of July celebrations when these two got back together!

I thought this was a very sweet romance.  The history that Grady and Nadya shared made their fall back in love seamless.  What I loved about this story is that the two acknowledge their past and realize they have a lot to work on before their true HEA. I feel like a lot of times in second chance romances, the reader doesn't get that sense.  I was definitely rooting for them. The story also has a pretty good mystery.  It is clear that someone in town is bent on setting up the Haven brothers and those who live on Gypsy Beach for the recent thefts and arsons.  The solution was definitely a surprise.  

I highly recommend this series.  Each one can be read as a stand alone.  I can't wait to see what comes next!

Excerpt:

“What the hell is wrong with you?” Grady huffed as he studied his youngest brother. Beau had been twitchy since he’d entered the new boathouse. He looked like a wary bass circling a hook debating its fate.
“Nothing.” He bristled and fidgeted with the boat keys in his hand. Grady and Nate had been trying to sort through the old fishing boxes of contracts, receipts, licenses, and paystubs at night now that they had an actual office to hold it all.
Nate rolled his eyes. “You know he’s not gonna let it go. Whatever it is just spill it.” He thumbed through a stack of old contracts before tossing them into the trash.
Very conveniently, Beau checked his watch. “I gotta get out of here.”
Moving nothing more than his overly-muscled arm, Grady caught the back of Beau’s shirt and prevented him from escaping.
“What the hell is going on with you?”
“She asked me not to say anything … but I kind of think you should know. Maybe?” Beau made a partial confession.
Grady’s brow furrowed, and he released his little brother. “Who asked you not to say anything?”
His head dropped, and Grady barely made out the word, “Nadya.”
Nate dropped the paperwork in his hand. The entire world seemed to stop spinning at that moment. Grady was unable to make any audible sound. He was stunned.
“You saw Nadya? Like Grady’s Nadya?” Nate beat him to the punch.
“Yeah,” Beau sighed. “She was at the coffee shop. Said she was gonna be here for a few weeks, and …”
“And what?” Grady managed to grunt. His heart felt like some kind of deranged pinball ricocheting from his throat, to his ribcage, to his gut in a nauseating cadence. It rang in his ears.
