We are happy to be participating in the “TOP 10 of 2013 A week of looking back… and looking forward” feature, hosted by Mindy @ Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, Rachel @ Fiktshun & Jaime @ Two Chicks on Books.   Top Ten Book Boyfriends of 2013   As a collector of book boyfriends, this is the toughest “Top 10” post for me to write. I’d like to just post a link to ALL the books I’ve read this year because chances are really good that I fell in like/love with at least one boy (and a girl or two) from every book on that list. Alas, the rules don’t allow for that. DISCLAIMER: I’d like to apologize […]

Welcome to week three of the 2013 Reading Rewind. My name is Jen and I DID NOT epically fail at week two. Nikki and I spent the week sending texts to each other swooning over those beautifully amazing Fisher boys. No matter if you’re team Jere or Conrad, the Summer series by Jenny Han is made of pure awesome.  I seriously wanted to start reading them AGAIN when I finished book three. Unlike week one, THIS series is holding through the test of time for me.  I’m on the verge of finishing up SUCH A RUSH tonight since I couldn’t finish by Sunday. Silly life getting in the way, yadda yadda yadda. I just have to finish it, though. At 150 pages in, I’m having […]

2013 Reading Rewind

Posted October 30, 2013 by jenniferstrand in Uncategorized / 3 Comments

For the second year in a row, my friend Nikki and I are using the month of December to re-read some of our favorite books.  Last year we read The Black Dagger Brotherhood series for the fourth time together. While it’s always fun to go back to Caldwell, NY, the best part about reading this series last year was the giggling and swooning we did. As a group.  See, we have friends that learned about our intentions and joined us and turned our re-read into a party! It was one of my favorite reading events of the year. (We still have a “secret” Facebook group in which we post completely appropriate content and pictures.) This year, Nikki and I […]
