At this time I will no longer be taking any new review requests or participating in any memes. There will still be author interviews, blasts, guest posts and occasionally reviews posted (as I climb through by TBR pile!!). Life is kind of hectic and I have to focus on a few other commitments before coming back full-time to my blog. Thank you to everyone that has supported me and I won't be gone forever. I will still be around on my social media sites!

Library Unveiled (5)

Don't know what is in your library? Want to share your books with others? Curious to know what is in other libraries?

Library Unveiled 

What is on Your Shelf? will allow you to share your personal library, bound or virtual, with the Mad Scientist and other bloggers. Every Thursday stop by and share 5 books; perhaps a snippet of your thoughts or link to a review.

Went back to my paperback library for this week...:D
 
The First Patient by Michael Palmer
Always enjoy a good medical thriller.

Hello! Hot Argeneau's...LOL. But seriously I love this series.

I liked Briggs' Mercy Thompson books so I thought I would try another series of hers.

Thr3e by Ted Dekker
Another great author!

Kelley writes a good biography usually. My husband is fan of Sinatra's music so I thought I would read about his life. I heard it was very interesting.

Review: Changeless by Gail Carriger


Changeless (The Parasol Protectorate)Changeless
by Gail Carriger
Series: Parasol Protectorate, Bk 2
Publisher: Orbit
Publication Date: April 1, 2010

*Caution: Changeless is part of a series and even though I try my best to not give spoilers, some are unavoidable. 

In this second installment of the Parasol Protectorate series, Alexia Maccon (formally Tarabotti) is adjusting to her new as wife to the local Alpha, Lord Conall Maccon, and muhjah to the queen. Conall is just informed of a great malady that has made all the supernaturals in the area mortal and his investigation takes him back to his pack that he abandoned in Scotland. Now he must confront his only living descendant who he knows will ask to be changed. 

Alexia, not to be abandoned, travels after her husband and discovers many things that she never knew about him before. Because she can’t travel alone, Ivy Hisselpeny, her best friend insists on traveling with her. On top of that, Alexia’s mother has dropped off her sister, Felicity and now she is going along too!! If you know anything about these three you know it makes for a mighty entertaining ride. Also along for the ride is Madame Lefoux, the new shop owner/inventor in London. She has designed a very exceptional parasol for Alexia by request of Conall. Of course, not man or beast are safe when Alexia carries a parasol. 

Once again Gail has written an intriguing read! I love the uniqueness of her character and the commentary between them. She really left me hanging with the ending of this one and I am so glad that I own the next book in this series, Blameless! I will be moving this one up on TBR list..:D

The King's Daughter. A Novel of the First Tudor Queen (Rose of York)My mouth opened for a scream that reached my throat and trembled there, but no sound came.

No one knew what I had seen, for Tom and Dick had told my mother I was in the privy when she'd asked about me.
