UTC Rewind: Angela’s Favorite Posts – Giveaway # 14Mind Spill

UTC Rewind: Angela’s Favorite Posts – Giveaway # 14

Seems like it was just yesterday that I was invited to submit a review for UTC. Two of my reviews were picked to be posted, and it was a pretty cool feeling. But the best was when I was invited to be part of the famous three. That was October of 2011 to be exact, a great Birthday month for me. It’s quite an experience being part of UTC and the blogging community. It wasn’t […]

UTC Rewind: Suzanne’s Favorite Posts – Giveaway # 13

What?! It’s been four years? Shut the front door! It seems like yesterday when I got an email from Fran seeing what I thought about starting a blog with her and Annie…and what I thought a good name would be (nailed it with that one I think *pats self on back*) to which I immediately responded with a giant YES, in fact I think I still have that message on Goodreads; I can’t bring myself […]

UTC Rewind – Annie’s Favorite Posts – Giveaway # 12

There’s something so exciting about a J.R. Ward new release, but it’s especially true when a new BDB book comes out. Since all four of us are massive fans of the series, we also do a group review after we’ve read it together. It’s one of the things I look forward to with the girls and to be honest, I think it was our love for Ward that brought us together in the first place. […]

UTC Rewind – Francesca’s Favorite Posts – Giveaway # 11

So here we are, four years later. I remember perfectly how Under the Covers came to be. I was chatting with Annie via messenger while celebrating Easter with the family at our summer home. My internet connection out there could be pretty spotty so I was curled in bed on a good internet area, watching the ocean…. We were mainly talking about the amount of our friends lately that had started review blogs. We went […]

Mind Spill: Romance Author & Reader Event Edinburgh

Mind Spill: Romance Author & Reader Event Edinburgh

Suzanne Reports from the Romance Author & Reader Event Edinburgh Edinburgh, a land full of whiskey, kilts and between the 4-7 July 2014 romance authors and readers. Heaven one might say. This one certainly does. My long weekend was full to the brim with laughter, friends and yes sneaking pictures of men in kilts. I was there to be an assistant to two of my favourite authors LH Cosway and Penny Reid. I was a slave […]

~ A GUIDE FOR RT VIRGINS ~ Attending the RT Booklover’s Convention is an event that ends up being one of the best things we at UTC do every year. This will be the third year attending for Francesca and Leigh, the second for Angela, and the first for Suzanne. For us seasoned veterans, we look forward to it as much as we did the first time, maybe even more so now that we know […]

Mind Spill: E-Serials…Love ‘Em or Hate ‘Em

Mind Spill: E-Serials…Love ‘Em or Hate ‘Em

  With the growing amount of e-serials flooding the market, and our own experiences with them, we wanted to bring up the issue and share our thoughts about this popular segment of ebooks today.  We would love to hear what you think about this in the comments! Annie… As the world’s most impatient reader, I will have to say that I’m not overly fond of e-serials. I don’t like having to wait very long periods […]

12 Days of Christmas: Dear Santa

Posted December 26, 2013 by Under the Covers Book Blog in Mind Spill / 5 Comments

Dear Satan Santa: I’m just going to go out on a limb here and assume I’m on the naughty list. It probably happened somewhere around February when I first called my kids ‘assholes’. But let’s be honest here, they were really being assholes. Or maybe it happened around June when I gave my kids a free pass to swear once and get it out of their systems and when my daughter said “crapbag” I told […]

It’s coming to that time of year the handcuffs are clinking merrily and the vibrators are buzzing away in our stockings (especially if Fran has bought you a Christmas present!) and we are surrounded by more chocolate than we could lick of Jason Momoa’s naked body… second thoughts maybe not, there is always room for licking more chocolate off Jason Momoa’s naked body. We at Under the Covers would like to wish you all a […]

Mind Spill: Past and Present Celebrity Crushes

MIND SPILL: PAST AND PRESENT CELEBRITY CRUSHES FRANCESCA This can’t get any more embarrassing. But here’s my past crushes…I had the biggest crush on JARED LETO since he was in the original URBAN LEGEND movie.  I actually went to the movie theater 5 times to watch the crappy movie just to see him!  And I totally rewinded and rewatched a million times his parts in FIGHT CLUB.  And yes, I sort of still have a […]
