Book reviews & author interviews

Here I will list the book reviews and author interviews I have conducted and posted to my blog. To read a REVIEW click on the book’s title; to be taken to an INTERVIEW click on the author’s name. (Note: ARC is short for Advanced Reading Copy.)

Also, as a member of Library Thing and BookLook Bloggers, I have the privilege of obtaining or winning books from them in trade for honest reviews.  I will be posting my reviews on their websites, and on Chapters.Indigo,,, Goodreads, Shelfari, and most of them here for you to read as well. I hope they are of help to you.

Before I really got into writing book reviews, I wrote a snippet of one included within another post; I’ll list it first.
