Quick Fix

Quick Fix is a humorous paranormal mystery novel, and the follow-up to In a Fix, by Linda Grimes.

I adored In a Fix – it was fun, breezy, original and stuffed with romance, mystery and humor.

And so is Quick Fix!!!

But if you have not read In a Fix, you really have no business reading the synopsis of Quick Fix– spoiling awesomeness should not be a priority, thankyouverymuch!

Instead, you can click here to read my complete thoughts on In a Fix.

Those of you, who HAVE read In a Fix, carry on:

Ciel Halligan, aura adapter/life fixer enjoys her job of stepping into her clients lives and assisting with their problems – as them.

If only she could fix her own life and confused romantic entanglements.

Anywho, whilst on a job at the National Zoo with her new, recently-turned-maybe-boyfriend Billy and his little sister Molly she ponders her suddenly complicated emotions.

Billy, best friend since childhood and longtime ne'er-do-well, has morphed into more – but her heady childhood/adult crush on CIA agent Mark seems to now have more potential to become something.

Yet her thoughts during the seemingly simple job are interrupted when Molly begins to show signs of being an adaptor herself – by taking the form of a baby orangutan!

Which is NOT supposed to be possible.

When Molly seems to not be able to turn human again, they find themselves escaping a zoo that thinks they’re stealing an exotic animal – and everything falls apart from there.

Murder, scientists, and mystery – oh my!

Okay, that’s just a quick peek at Quick Fix.

Though Quick Fix is often racier than I prefer – certainly not as detailed as some sex scenes I’ve encountered in books, but not as vague and restrained as I’d like either – Ciel’s life presents a bevy of laugh-out-loud hilarity, excellent dialogue, and narration!

There’s an amusing, eccentric family element – not to mention that paranormal aspect is fascinating and fresh.

Quick Fix offers up a great plot, yet again, that provides growth opportunities for the characters and plenty of twists and turns in the smart mystery.

I won’t lie and say the romantic triangle isn’t hot, either.

This is a complicated, entertaining mystery with a Ciel as a heroine that manages to be both upbeat and self-deprecating.

I definitely hope for another book… SOON!!!

Real Live Boyfriends

Real Live Boyfriends is a YA contemporary novel by E. Lockhart, and the fourth novel in the Ruby Oliver quartet.

Here we are on the last day of “Ruby Oliver Week” and if you aren’t already reading these books – well, why not?

But I’m more than sure most of you are – and hopefully you’re all caught up, and therefore not at risk of being spoiled by my review of Real Live Boyfriends. You’ve been warned!

Ruby Oliver is beginning her senior year of high school with a real live boyfriend: Noel.

At least she thought she was.

After having spent the rest of junior year and the beginning of summer being fully in love (okay, they never actually said the word, but the vibes were strongly in that direction), Ruby is now confused.

Again.

When Noel went to visit his brother in New York for a while, almost every day they talked on the phone and exchanged funny emails. She never once felt insecure.

Until all of a sudden – communication stopped. Ruby would call and he wouldn’t answer. She’d leave a voice mai…

Interview with Joanna Philbin!

Today we have an extra special guest! Joanna Philbin, author of The Daughters series, is here to tell us about the fourth and (*sniff*) final book in the series - The Daughters Join the Party - as well as answer some other questions!

Welcome to the Bibliophile Support Group, Joanna! We're happy to have you!

So, for anybody who hasn't read the first three books in The Daughters series (read my reviews here: The Daughters, The Daughters Break the Rules, The Daughters Take the Stage) can you give everybody a general idea of what they're about?

Lizzie, Carina, and Hudson are best friends who are normal fourteen year-old girls in almost every way. Except for one: each girl has a parent who is incredibly famous. And her parent’s fame complicates her life in a big way. Lizzie’s mom is a supermodel, but Lizzie isn’t what most people would call “beautiful” – in fact, she’s what most people might call “unusual-looking.” How do you deal with having a supermodel mother when you don’t …

#YAStandsFor Daily Social Challenge... Day 5!

In my final day of participating in the I Read YA Week celebration (you can keep partying, it goes on through Monday!), I found myself presented with a new challenge of: Create a graphic showcasing an inspirational YA quote.

I'm not super tech savvy and I've never created a graphic before. But with just a little Google searching and a download of an app, I was able to create this:
