Ciao! Italy 2014: Day 2 in Rome

Hi everyone!

Here's the last post that I will be sharing with you guys about Italy. I will be talking about my second trip into Rome.

There was so much to see in Rome that I wanted to go back. My friend and I decided to give it another try before we left for Palermo the following day.

Again, we were stunned at the beauty of the Piazza del Popolo when we arrived. We also noticed that there was a Leonardo da Vinci museum right there in the plaza. We wanted to go in but we decided to leave it after we visited the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. Unfortunately, things didn't planned out the way we hoped.

Review: Soulless by Gail Carriger

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/21/Soulless_by_Gail_Carriger_1st_edition_cover.png

Alexia Tarabotti is laboring under a great many social tribulations. First, she has no soul. Second, she's a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social etiquette.

Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire -- and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.

With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London's high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

Hello readers!

I am delighted to share with you the cover reveal of a new book:

Before Time by Xunaira J

This is a New Adult/Tragic Romance book. The thought that this book is "tragic" intrigues me very much because I am curious to find out as to what makes it so devastatingly sad.

Here's what the book is about:

Ciao! Italy 2014: Day 1 in Rome



Ciao tutti! I was hoping to post this sooner but I got caught up with work. This post will be about my first trip into Rome! 

We were supposed to have traveled into Rome on the second day we arrived in Italy, but we were unable to because of the strikes. Apparently, Rome is famous for having strikes. They happen often and always at random. When a strike happens, no one works and I mean no one. All public transportation ceases and if you are in Rome, you are stuck there until the strikes are over. We were told not to go there in fear that we will not be able to get back.

Cover Reveal: My Wife's Li'l Secret by Eve Rabi

My Wifes Lil Secret - Reveal Banner  

 

Here's a new book in the Women's Fiction genre whose cover has just been revealed. 

 

What is the book about?

 

She called me the miracle in her life, I called her my Li’l treasure.

Sounds corny, I know, but I really believed I was the luckiest bastard on earth. I had the loving and supportive wife, a nurturing mother to our two precious girls, a thriving business and the future looked rosy. I was a contented man.

But overnight everything changed. My wife withdrew from me, ignored our children, and made it clear she was no longer interested in playing the role of wife and mother.

We had two children under five, they needed her. I needed her.

When her dressing began to change and she disappeared for hours, I suspected I was not enough for her. Thinking she was having an affair, I placed my wife of five years under surveillance.

What my surveillance revealed shook my world, broke my heart and exposed a web of lies and deceit.
