BOOK SNOBS part 2

PREVIOUSLY: BOOK SNOBS Please read the link, if you haven’t before, as it says all I really have to say on this topic of Book Snobs, which is what I call people who are serious readers and/or writers, that take a particular delight in mocking certain books and those who read them. Personally, I hate…

ROBERT GALBRAITH AKA J.K. ROWLING

An interesting news story came to light, in the literary world, recently. It seems that back in April, a new crime-fiction novel called The Cuckoo’s Calling was printed, written by debut novelist Robert Galbraith. The book got many rave reviews, and critics were astounded that a brand new writer like Galbraith could write such an…

PHOENIX RISING by Corrina Lawson

Superheroes and sex, two of my favorite topics. Thankfully these topics are combined in this latest Urban Fantasy novel from Corrina Lawson. This book has a little bit of all the things I like in fiction: government conspiracies, military action, superhuman fighting, and did I mention the sex? This is the story of Alec Farley,…

CONFESSIONS OF THE WALKER STALKER by Sue Chen

Sue Chen is an active woman. She serves on the board of several charitable organizations, including the LA Chapter of The National Association of Women Business Owners, Reef Check, and Shark Savers, with whom, a few months ago, she personally lobbied members of the California Legislature to pass a bill banning sales of Shark fins…

THE FACEBOOK EFFECT by David Kirkpatrick

I bought this book on my Amazon Kindle a few weeks ago, and have been reading it in my spare time. It’s a fascinating story that is much more balanced then the book which the movie The Social Network was based on. Far from the villain/asshole that that film made him out to be, we…

DARK CONSEQUENCES by Ed Ferrara

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to be completely paralyzed, unable to move, or even speak, and then be slowly eaten alive by a dozen large rats? Or have you ever dreamed of being strapped to a table, completely naked, while a crazy old woman started hacking off pieces of your body…
