Blog shopping

The other day Paperback Writer blogged about "blog shopping," buying books by authors you know of because you read their blog. It's interesting that she coined that phrase, because today I bought a book by, you guessed it, PBW (in one of her many incarnations). Specifically, I bought If Angels Burn by Lynn Viehl. The cover (which reminds me vaguely of Sherrilyn Kenyon's covers, now that I think of it) has intrigued me, so I finally decided to buy it.

I got a chance to read a few pages in the car when the baby demanded I put my shopping on hold for a few minutes and provide him with a snack (your wish is my command, my liege:-), and so far it's very gripping. Definitely dark (the heroine is a reconstructive surgeon, and some of the descriptions of her patients are quite disturbing) but fascinating. I have to confess I don't usually read vampire romances, but this looks like it'll be a terrific exception to the rule!


  1. This is on the way to me, and I can't wait to read it. Btw, congrats on all your page writing! :) Deidre

  2. Yours is the second blog I've visited tonight that talked about this book. *marking it down on my TBR list*

  3. Ooh, let me know how it is! I've got it on my wish list for my next Amazon purchase!

  4. Lately, all of my book purchases have been c/o bloghopping. Including the book you're talking about ;)

  5. Hi everyone here,

    I have started a new shopping portal - where I have made my all endeavors to keep the prices highly competitive & a stores directory namely I would thank the community here for their suggestion/advices. Please do not consider this a spam.
