Hi Y’all! It is November and that is always the month I am reminded that there are tons of things that I am thankful for in my life. This year November will be known as the Month of Thanks. I am going to do 30 days of Thanks here on Geeky Bloggers Book Blog! Each day I will highlight one author (and the book they wrote that moved me) and one blogger (and their awesomeness) that I am thankful for! These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone that I love. I am thankful for Karin Slaughter and her newest entry in the Will Trent series: Criminal!  This story was important on many levels!  I believe that it was a pretty accurate portrayal of what it was like for women in the workforce (specifically the police force) in the 1970s and how far we have come (also a nod to just how much we have left to accomplish).  I also think it was a fantastic example of how to do split timeline storytelling.  Not everyone can pull it off but Karin did so with a masterful touch.  The story was just […]

I am thankful for Olivia Cunning and her Rock Stars!  This was my other naughty read for this year that absolutely made me turn red.  However it is the world and the characters that really make Olivia Cunning’s writing shine for me.  The world she has created for the Sinners is just as mesmerizing as any Urban Fantasy setting.  I really felt like I was getting to know what it was like for Rock Stars, their families, their friends, and the fans.  She manages to make you think that you are part of this richly built world and each book […]

These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone that I love. I am thankful for Deborah Harkness and her ability to revive the epic read!  It has been a long time since I have craved what I call “EPIC” reads but her series is one that I count down too.  The huge size and the epic amount of information in both books so far has not been a deterrent at all.  In fact, I have left each book wanting more and wishing I could feed her chocolate and caffeine to write faster.  What she has done though is open me up to looking at books over 500 pages again.  I avoided […]

These are not in any particular order and by no means is 30 going to cover everyone that I love. I am thankful for Ellery Adams for her wonderful way of telling stories that make me root for the good guys, sneer at the mean guys, and yell at the bad guys!  Most of all I am thankful that she writes stories that make me smile 🙂  One prime example of this brilliant storytelling is Pies and Prejudice!  I adored this book.  Pies and Prejudice made me smile, giggle, and wish that I could bake like Ella.  The aunts reminded me a little bit of my aunts so that made the book extra special to me! When the going gets […]

I am thankful for Melissa Schroeder and her book Surrender!  I am going to admit that I don’t read a whole lot of really “naughty” books.  I love them occasionally but on whole I am pretty mainstream.  My poor cheeks would be a constant shade of red if I read more of the erotica genre.  I am thrilled it exists though because there are so many great stories that need to be told that can only be done justice through erotica.  One of the books I loved this year was Surrender.  Surrender was a book that just fit for […]
