And...we're back!

After a much needed break from blogging, I'm back!  Now I know some of you are like:


Still, some of you may not have realized I was on hiatus and you're like: 


At any rate, I'm back with book reviews and literary news for the new year.  You'll see a special Tuesday post tomorrow and then I'll be back on my regular blogging schedule beginning Wednesday.  For those new to the site, I'll bring you up to speed.
  • I generally post reviews on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Fridays are up for grabs.  Sometimes I do reviews on Fridays, other times I just throw things at the wall and see what happens.  That usually results in Free for All Friday where I talk about any and everything.
  • I mostly read and review works by and/or about African-Americans or other people of color, but I do love good chick lit too.  If there's anything I hate, loathe, despise and abominate (h/t to "Meet Me in St. Louis, which I 've watched far too many times), it's urban/street lit, paranormal lit and erotica.  If you see reviews of any of these genres on here, call the police and tell them someone is holding me hostage and making me read and review them.
  • A little over a year ago, I started adding theme songs to my reviews.  These are songs that either popped in my head as I was reading the book or remind me of the book in some way.
  • I love reader feedback.  Don't like my review? Tell me.  Want recommendations on books? Ask.  See some room for improvement? Share your ideas!
So that's it.  Welcome to a new year and new reviews.
