A New Reviewer Arrives and This Week at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words


Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words blog Badge

Good morning!  Hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday!  Today our group of reviewers expands with the addition of Jeri.  We are so happy to have her here and be able to expand our circle of reviewers and ability to share more books and authors with all of you.


Here is a little bit about our latest reviewer….

Jeri:Erin's Icon



Jeri has been a reader as long as she can remember. Reading past bed time with a flashlight was the norm. Always a fan of romance novels, she discovered M/M stories on a website and was immediately hooked. With the advent of eBooks and the ease of sticking to her favorite genre- traditional romance books are very few and far between.

A 40 something mom of a preteen, and even working full time, knitting and crocheting as a part time job and keeping a house, she finds the time to read everyday. She loves sharing what she’s read and getting readers excited about a new book.

Please join us in welcoming Jeri to Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words.  We are so happy to have her here and look forward to reading her thoughts and reviews on stories, books, and authors in the genres we love.  We are still looking for a YA LGBT reviewer to join Aurora, so if you  know any teenager or NA who loves to read and write, see if they would like to join Aurora as our YA/NA reviewer (with their parent or guardian’s  permission of course).

We have so many wonderful books that cropped up in this week’s review schedule.  For me, Alex Beecroft’s Trowchester Blues series continues with the amazing  Steel Blue Chain, a story that challenged my perceptions of love and romance and had me thinking about pain and acceptance.  It’s quite the story.  Mika reviews Santino Hassell’s Sutphin Boulevard.  This is a new author to me and possibly to you.  Check out what Mika found upon reading the story.  Paul is on a paranormal tear through all things shifters, scify, and possibly supernatural, starting with Breeding Stations by Chris T. Kat.  Stella reviews a older release given new life and new readers with an adorable new cover (new readers that include Stella) with Crossing Borders by Z. A. Maxfield. And Barb our Zany Old Lady has LA Witt and Aleksandr Voinov’s On the Clock (a Market Garden story) also being released this week.  Oh and that story with the spiders I was telling you about?  Obsidian Sun by Jon Keys?  Look for that as well.

Jeri’s reviews start next  week!  Until then, happy reading and have great week!
