Thursday Thoughts: Why?

Musings of A Romance Junkie

Thursday ThoughtsCause sometimes I have some shit on my mind that can’t wait til Monday Musings…

This week’s thoughts have been brewing in my mind for a minute, and they aren’t directed toward anyone specifically LIES, but merely a reflection of some things that bother me and keep me tossin and turnin at night.

 1.       I HATE am disillusioned when an author tags their book as IR only for the main character(s) who are the IR couple not to end up together at the end. I’m not talking about the stories where they end up in a different interracial relationship, but the ones where the man or woman (where one or both of them are the lead) is in an existing IR relationship, but some shit goes down, and they meet and fall in love with another person who happens to be their race. I don’t read IR…

Musings of A Romance Junkie

FateReborn_MED Coming 1/30/15

Dukkha Fate Series

When a man with an ancient grudge meets and falls in love with the innocent girl who’s life was ruined by his vendetta, complicated isn’t word enough to describe the situation he finds himself in. His chance with her would be shot to hell if she were to find out his role in her family’s death. She would probably take the news that he was 325 year old werewolf much better.

New Releases!

Hot new releases in the BEST of Interracial Romance!

Musings of A Romance Junkie

Week Ending 1-23

For week ending 1/23. I truly try to make this board as eclectic and original as possible while maintaining the integrity of the genre. You will never see me promote fetish titles no matter how popular the book may be. I will also never promote titles that I feel are blatantly disrespectful to black women-those that treat us as nothing more than sex objects, gold diggers, or any of the above…What you will see is a mix of popular IR authors, seasoned authors who are new to the genre or under the radar, and first-time authors. So, with that being said, let’s go!

Again For The First Time: Raven St. Pierre

The Bradshaws: Angelia Menchan Vernon

A Constant Reminder: Lolah Lace

Heartache: Danielle Allen

Hot Water: Rose Francis

A Love Like This: Stephanie James

Rock Your Body: Susan Westwood

Scratch-Corporate Hitmen: Olivia…

Musings of A Romance Junkie

Week Ending 1-15

Y’all know I’m always changing stuff, and this time is no different. There are many new books released each week, and I don’t think it’s fair to all these wonderful authors to snub them at the beginning of the month. Soooo…instead of doing a monthly release board, CC and I decided to do a weekly release board.

We will post the board every Friday, and it will include noteworthy and/or interesting reads released between Friday of the previous week-Thursday of the current week so we can post every Friday. So, without further ado, behold our inaugural board. Oh, there won’t always…

Monday Musings: Codeword: Diversity

Musings of A Romance Junkie

Diversity II

“Diversity” is such a buzzword, and as soon as I hear or see it, I immediately think, Ok, someone is being racist or prejudiced about something…I’ve been thinking about this word a lot and how it applies to me and this blog, and it could be argued that I lack diversity when it comes to the romance I choose to read and blog about. I could also counter that argument and say that my blog brings to attention the lack of diversity displayed by the more popular, mainstream blogs. But my point is, I have decided to diversify my reading choices somewhat. Now, I’m not abandoning my sistas in anyway because I will always rep to the death, but what I am saying is that I will commit to read at least one, non-BW interracial romance story a month, review it, and blog about it. I am sure I am…

Sony Is Bringing Back the Walkman With One Huge Surprise

$1120.00???

TIME

Sony unveiled a new Walkman on Tuesday that will deliver an exceptional audio experience—at an exceptionally high price.

The new Sony ZX2 Walkman will set audiophiles back by $1,119.99, Sony revealed at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. According to Sony, the payoff comes with a clarity of sound that approaches master recordings in studio.

Unlike CD’s and MP3 files, which compress sound files into more manageable sizes, the new walkman will retain songs in “high resolution” (a typical song file weighs in at a hefty 150MB). That wider bandwidth allows for more sensitive recordings, “for a more authentic, emotionally involving musical experience,” Sony says.

Pono, a similar high fidelity audio player backed by Neil Young, retails at $399. Then there’s the larger question of whether the average listener can appreciate high-resolution sound files. Some studies have suggested young listeners actually prefer the sound of a compressed…
