Enter 2010

A new decade, a new year. It's time to start cleaning up house for new faves of the year. I'm looking forward to discovering new goodies to add to my reading and movie list.

I saw a blurb over on NPR About Louisa May Alcott's life. Girlie had a wild streak! And it looked like she didn't think too highly on the "moral pap" of Little Women and such literature "but it paid well". ;-) It'll be interesting to see the woman behind the novel. I'm interrested in learning more about her pulp fiction writings. Wonder if I can get my hands on those...

Here are five things you may not know about Miss Alcott:

Here's the PBS American Masters Trailer:

Since the lull of the end of the year has passed, it's time to start getting back in gear. The novel writing workshop will be starting up, I need to start blogging more in between projects, and some deadlines have gotten closer than they were just a few days ago. Before I grab too many 2010 reads, I want to read more of my TBR pile to get that down. The pile alone on my bed is threatening my sleeping space so I'll have to work on tackling that.

New goodies coming up this month for paranormal fans!

In the movies is the Ethan Hawke futuristic paranormal vampire flick Daybreakers. Yay! I've been waiting like crazy for this one.

Blurb: Two-time Academy Award nominee® Ethan Hawke plays Edward Dalton, a researcher in the year 2019, in which an unknown plague has transformed the world's population into vampires. As the human population nears extinction, vampires must capture and farm every remaining human, or find a blood substitute before time runs out. However, a covert group of vampires makes a remarkable discovery, one which has the power to save the human race.

Oh, I do love that trailer. :-) Daybreakers premieres next Friday, January 8th, 2010.

Next up from across the pond, it's Season 2 of Being Human.

The show last left off on a pretty big cliffhanger so I'm eager to see how they get out of this one. The trailer is pretty sparse but there's some other mini vids available for viewing. If you're a behind the scenes junkie like me, I'm sure you'd like these. :-)

For more, check out the list of Being Human goodies at Youtube. I'm digging the song which I heard is called Howl by Florence and the Machine. Can't wait to see this one!

Book Lovers! If you're in the Austin area and are looking to join a romance focused book club, join my fellow reader buddy Danielle's group. She has an online group over at Goodreads and anyone is invited. :-)

Happy new Year Rae. I too have a mountain of TBR books but it seems like I never have time to read much anymore. It's insane. But, of course I'm looking forward to the next Sookie Stackhouse coming out in May. I love that series. Plus, season 3 of True Blood based on the books gets underway in June. I don't care how different the show is from the books. Alexander Skarsgard as Eric is totally scrummy.:-)

Hey Kat!

Hope you're having a wonderful one!

So true. Time keeps getting away and the pile just keeps on growing! Oh! I almost forgot about the new Sookie book and True Blood. I imagine it'll return in the summer like last year. It'll be interesting to see where it goes from here!

And I so agree about Alexander Skarsgard. Big show bonus!

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen ~ Giveaway + Book Blast + Kindle Scout Nom

I'm so excited about this! Annette K Larsen hooked me when I first read her YA Fantasy Romance Missing Lily and I'm jazzed to say she has a new release out! Annette's book is also on Kindle Scout. A link is included below to check out the book and nominate her book! Enjoy! ~R

Keeping Kinley by Annette K. Larsen
He's noble. She's common. It's complicated. Kinley is content with her common life until a chance meeting with an old friend—a noble—brings the possibility of love. Though Rylan pursues her with a charming carelessness, she doesn’t dare hope that their relationship will be accepted. When Kinley’s livelihood is threatened, she is thrust into his world as a servant, but the Rylan she encounters there isn’t the quirky friend she thought she knew. Can she trust him, or will she be forced to accept that her dreams are only that—dreams?

~Excerpt~ My breath caught as soon as he said the name and my eyes searched his features, looking for the little boy I had known…

It's August!

Hey folks!

Can you guys believe it's August already?

Lots of stuff going on in the world of Rae at the moment both personally and professionally. The newsletter will be going out soon and I'm diligently trying to get out a new release ASAHP that was held back a bit due to me not being happy with the end results. Stay tuned because I feel the end is nigh!

I took a breather from book reviewing and reading to deal with my current rental situation, but I miss it! I love the feeling of coming across that epic book you want to shout from the rooftops and losing myself in epic worlds. Sooooo....I'm diving back in. :-D I'm going through the list of books I had waiting in the wings and will try to play catch up. As I'm only one person with a busy schedule, I may not be able to get all the books reviewed right away and some I may sadly have to put aside if they don't grab me enough. Argh! I want to read and review everything but I can see now why so many bloggers have t…
