Daily Dose Holiday Blog Giveaway: Kitty Came Upon a Midnight Clear
Holiday / December 13, 2009

The Daily DoseSmattering of Romance, Paranormal, and General Observations What do you get with a werewolf named Kitty, a radio show and a fresh look at werewolves in literature? The answer is Carrie Vaughn‘s exciting first book in the Kitty Norville series: KITTY AND THE MIDNIGHT HOUR. My husband picked this up on a whim because the title sounded like something I would read and as usual, he was right. I adored the fresh take on werewolves and supernatural politics set against the backdrop of a night time talk radio show. Vaughn captures the nuances of talk radio, but adds wonderful spice with Kitty’s very “normal” reactions to the supernatural world in which she exists. Today, Carrie Vaughn is giving away an autographed KITTY AND THE MIDNIGHT HOUR with a bonus homemade CD of the playlist. I think whomever you nominate for this gift is in for a real treat.

If you’re looking for a fresh take on werewolves, supernatural politics and sexy, fun humor, this is the series for you. KITTY AND THE MIDNIGHT HOUR Kitty Norville…

Sundays with Sandi / December 13, 2009

This week I have been reading Rainwater by Sandra Brown. By Wikipedia’s definition historical romance is anything set before World War II. As I’ve read Rainwater I couldn’t help but feel that I was not reading a historical book, but one that could just as easily happen today. I almost passed on reading Rainwater because of the historical label that it has…I don’t mind historicals, and have in fact read a few in my day, but no longer read them as a part of my regular reading pattern. Had I passed on this title I would have missed a book that I have been enjoying. To read more of WHAT DO YOU THINK MAKES A BOOK A HISTORICAL and to leave a comment please click here.
