Literary World Traveler

A 37 year old wife, mother, business owner, and devourer of books, I would rather read than do just about anything. My husband and I read every night before bed and throughout the day when we can sneak a few minutes away. My most memorable reading experiences include my husband taking vacation time, standing in lines outside of book stores and attending book parties with me just so we could get two of the first copies of a popular book and shut ourselves in our home while we read them together. There are series that we follow religiously and genres that we just cannot get enough of, but there are enough differences in our preferences that, between the two of us, there are books of pretty much every genre and topic piled on bookshelves in our home and office. Working in market research and managing online and social media presences for our clients' brands, I like the idea of utilizing this media for the promotion of the books and fantastical worlds that I enjoy so much. Reading as many as a hundred books or more per year, I know that I will never read all the books I would like to, with more than two ten thousand books already purchased and set aside and new books being published all the time, but it is not going to stop me from having a wonderful time trying. My husband can read two books per day if he devotes the entire day to reading and has nearly perfect recall; I, on the other hand, can only complete one, but I figure that between the two of us, with all the lazy Sundays, vacation days, and extended lunch hours yet to be had that we will make a respectable dent in the wealth of literature waiting to be explored.

Hold the Line!

The Line - J.D. Horn

Disclaimer: I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and invited to write an honest review.

I was positively entertained by debut author J.D. Horn's, "The Line." I devoured this first installment of the, "Witching Savannah" series in one sitting and am eager to begin the next.

I found the author's original magical hierarchy and power structure to be refreshing and was pleasantly surprised along the way by a few unexpected elements and plot twists.

Though romantic and family challenges were included, they were integral to the plot and therefore did not overshadow the fantastical elements that drew me to the book in the first place.

While there are many books that I enjoy or even love once really "getting into" them, "The Line" grabbed my attention from the start and held on through the final page. While I wish I had that experience with every new read, the rarity of such an occurrence certainly does make it all that more enjoyable.

With the vast number of paranormal fantasy and urban fantasy offerings for readers to choose from, especially from newer authors struggling to compete with reader commitment to longtime favored authors and investment in long-running series, this one stands out above so many.

I definitely recommend. "The Line" and am looking for more great things from Mr. Horn. I'm pleased to add the, "Witching Savannah" series to my ongoing series list and will be eagerly watching release dates.
