I’m very eclectic in my reading tastes. My intent when I talk about a book is to tell you my feelings on the book which may be very different from your own. I don’t get paid to talk about books on my blog from the authors I feature. I do so because I love to read, write, and share my thoughts with those of you who read my blog. Regardless of what other authors do, I will never accept money to review a book or advertise a book that I don’t believe in. If I write about a book it’s because I enjoyed it or it’s on my to be read list.
While my reviews may be jaded to my personal taste, you can always count on my honesty. However, I do belong to Amazon’s affiliate program but it’s the only one I participate with because for the most part affiliate programs leave a bad taste in my mouth. But unlike most affiliate programs I’m not forced to advertise content I don’t believe in or content that’s random, and has nothing to do with my blog. I get to choose what books I feature and their program makes it easy to link to them with an image for my readers. That way I don’t have to worry about copyright with featuring images of coverart that don’t belong to me.
You will notice my honesty with my words regarding the latest and the last book in the Sookie Stackhouse series yesterday. I enjoyed the books prior to From Dead to Worse and I’m in no rush to conclude the series given the hype combined with my own impression of her work.
Currently, on my to be read list is Taken by a Vampire by Joey W. Hill. It’s the ninth book in her Vampire Queen series, just released last month from Berkley. In her newest installment, a servant sentenced to death is sent into hiding and finds a passion she never expected in her new protector.
Groomed from birth to be an Inherited Servant and serve only the most powerful vampire Masters, Alanna never resented her destiny. Then she did the unthinkable: she betrayed her Master to the Vampire Council. Now death is her future, but until her Master is captured, she must be protected. The Vampire Council assigns her to Evan, a vampire whose wandering lifestyle makes him the perfect guardian.
Alanna’s training was for a vampire of power and ambition, not for someone like Evan who lives in mountainside shacks and caves. Even his servant, Niall, is rough mannered. But these two men are about to teach Alanna something her rigorous training never did: how to feel, how to desire…perhaps even how to love.
Then the Council captures her Master, and Alanna has no choice but to accept her destiny. But Evan and Niall are no strangers to defying fate—and they will stop at nothing to make Alanna theirs forever.
