The Best Kind of Trouble by Lauren Dane #Review

[book-info]

PJV Quickie: The Best Kind of Trouble is the kind of book you take your time with, savoring each word and page like expensive chocolate because you don’t want it to end too soon.  Then, like that expensive chocolate, the taste of it lingers for you to enjoy after it’s done.

Review:
I’m going to start this review with a quote from my review of LUSH, the 3rd book in Ms.Dane’s Delici…

Book Blogging 101 - The legalities of the animated gif

Book Blogging 101 – The legalities of the animated gif

To preface this post, I am not a lawyer, I am not a copyright expert. I did play one on television once and I took a few copyright classes in college. So, while my information is researched, there are smarter and more informed people then me…just saying.

Is an Animated Gif Legal?

Most people will say that an animated gif falls under the FAIR USE. The people that aren’t saying anything – well they…

I am the Mission by Allen Zadoff

I am the Mission by Allen Zadoff

PJV Quickie Review: The second in the series pulls no punches. Allen Zadoff has delivered a remarkably intense follow-up to  I AM THE WEAPON. Once again you are plunged into the world of the unknown assassin as his perfectly constructed life slides out of control. Everything he thought was truth, might just be a lie as he is sent to kill the leader of a cult-like para-military group. He doesn’t…

Amy Plum’s AFTER THE END - A PJV Must Not Read #Review

Amy Plum’s AFTER THE END – A PJV Must Not Read #Review

PJV Quickie: Oh, gods of dystopian, I wanted to like AFTER THE END, I did. But when I put the book down to begin with – I didn’t want to pick it up again. That is telling me, I’m just not getting into this book. I wasn’t a fan of Amy Plum’s first series – so I shouldn’t have read this book. I know I shouldn’t – but the synopsis sounded good – so I thought I would give her another chance. I liked…

The Here and Now by Ann Brashares

The Here and Now by Ann Brashares

PJV Review:The synopsis describes this as an unforgettable epic romance and while this title was enjoyable, I wouldn’t describe it as unforgettable or epic. Boo! I know. This was sort of a cult, meets time travel, meets dystopian, weird mix of genres, that I did find enjoyable, but it also played to that suspension of disbelief, which is common in YA scifi, at moments which left me with a lighter…

Day 7: What is the most inspiring books you’ve read that have {been} assigned to you?

Inspiring doesn’t necessarily mean best books, I’m taking this assignment for face value – a book that “inspired” me to think differently about a certain subject, or inspired me to “do” something.

I Want It That Way by Ann Aguirre #Review

I Want It That Way by Ann Aguirre #Review

[book-info]

PJV Quickie: I wasn’t sure what to expect when I heard Ann Aguirre was writing a New Adult series – that’s sooo different from her other books!  I am happy to say I was not disappointed; I Want it That Way was a captivating story with an emotional touch that burrows its way in and squeezes your heart until it hurts.  I love it when a book affects me like that.
