Author Amanda Young Says

Amanda Young likes to read as much as she writes. Maybe more. Is anything better than a good steamy romance or a shocking horror novel?

Mountain Man

Mountain Man - Keith C. Blackmore,  Lynn O' Dell An interesting, if somewhat bleak, zombie novel. I'd definitely be interesting in reading more about Gus and Scotty.


Strangers - Barbara Elsborg I beta read this a very long time ago...

Second Chances

Second Chances - T.A. Webb Amazing.

Close Protection

Close Protection - Cordelia Kingsbridge Fantastic!


Abomination - Jaye Valentine I really enjoyed this story and I'm looking forward to reading more. Hopefully we'll see a follow-up book soon.

Silver Lining

Silver Lining - Chris T. Kat Beautifully written, but incredibly depressing.

The Sleepeasy Solution: The Exhausted Parent's Guide to Getting Your Child to Sleep from Birth to Age 5

The Sleepeasy Solution: The Exhausted Parent's Guide to Getting Your Child to Sleep from Birth to Age 5 - Jennifer Waldburger, Jill Spivack Just finished this one. It was simple to read and follow. I finished it in about two hours after my little one went to sleep last night. As for how it works...that remains to be seen. I haven't worked up the nerve to try it yet. I may report back after we've given it a shot.ETA: This definitely works though it isn't for everyone. Madison cried for about 45 minutes the first night and about broke my heart. The second night she cried for less than two minutes and slept 12+ hours. Same thing on the third night. I hope it continues to work well as she adjusts to the new routine.

Bad Moon Rising

Bad Moon Rising - D.C. Juris Loved this. It was a mix of my two favorite genres...horror and romance.

Countdown to Daddies

Countdown to Daddies - K-lee Klein Simply adorable

One Good Year

One Good Year - Rowan McBride A lovely visit with two of my favorite characters.

Shattered Glass (Shattered Glass, #1)

Shattered Glass (Shattered Glass, #1) - Dani Alexander I loved this. Enough said.

Dirty Little Secrets from Otherwise Perfect Moms

Dirty Little Secrets from Otherwise Perfect Moms - Trisha Ashworth, Amy Nobile I should have read the reviews before I bought this book. I was expecting stories. Instead, it was one quote per page. Sometimes there was one quote stretched out into two pages, which is just ridiculous. It took me like ten minutes to read through the entire thing.

Baby Laughs: The Naked Truth about the First Year of Mommyhood

Baby Laughs: The Naked Truth About the First Year of Mommyhood - Jenny McCarthy This was an amusing read, but I didn't really learn anything - which was kind of the point.

A Family Found (Hamilton River)

A Family Found (Hamilton River) - Nicole Dennis This was an interesting read. To me, this plot felt like a homage of sorts to Harlequin's secret baby novels - which I grew up reading and still consider an occasional guilty pleasure.


Bounty - Hank  Edwards Bounty has a little bit of everything: vampires, zombies, hookers, and lets not forget the hot men and a hint of romance. I'm looking forward to book two!

Junkyard: Gay Bordello Stories: #1, Beads

Junkyard: Gay Bordello Stories: #1, Beads - Jaye Valentine A hot little short. I'm looking forward to seeing more.
