In a Nutshell: A Few Mini Book Reviews

In a Nutshell: A Few Mini Book Reviews

My favorite time of year is upon us and I am really looking forward to fall weather and events. While I hate to lose the daylight hours, fall is my favorite season and I love the cooling crispness in the air. California hasn’t had the best luck this year with the super hot weather and the fires, so the cooling weather is a welcome respite. The world has gotten really crazy in the last few months and, while I try to help where I can, it can be pretty overwhelming. Reading is great escape for me and a good way… Read more »

Manicure Monday (94): Blameless

Manicure Monday (94): Blameless

Hi and welcome to Manicure Monday, a feature that combines my love of reading and nail polish. Each week I’ll showcase one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. Hello! Hope you all had a good weekend. I was sick about a week ago and found myself totally uninterested in reading. I hate it when you’re so sick that can’t even read. Doesn’t that just seem wrong? Anyway, when I finally started getting my mojo back I decided to read something that would be a fun read. I decided to picked up Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series. I had read… Read more »

Etiquette & Espionage – Book Trailer

Etiquette & Espionage – Book Trailer

I am not usually one for book trailers as they generally feature bad special effects and bad acting, but I just had to share this trailer for Gail Carriger’s new upcoming book, Etiquette & Espionage. I love the paper cutout figures and the somewhat hoity English voice narrating. I think it’s a perfect fit for the tone of the series. I know I keep talking about this book but it’s because I am so excited about it!Etiquette & Espionage hits stores Feb 5, 2013. Do you like book trailers in general or avoid them like me?

Manicure Monday (1): Etiquette & Espionage

Manicure Monday is a weekly feature that combines my love of nail polish and reading. Each week I’ll show you one of my current reads along with a matching book manicure. As you can see, I am trying out a new feature here on Nite Lite. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you’ve probably noticed that I have a slight obsession with nail polish. I love all makeup really but nail polish is sort of my thing and all my friends know me as a bit of a polish hoarder. So to spice things up I thought I would try out… Read more »
