Goodreads-iconSo, let’s see. I started logging the books I’ve read into Goodreads on March 2014. Since then I’ve read 253 books (this is not counting the books I started and put down as too bad to finish and a handful of short free ebooks that didn’t seem worth the effort of writing down), for about 25 books a month. Yeah, that seems about right….


Keeping track of my day-t0-day reading has been an interesting...

All the Turns of Light by Frank Tuttle

I'm afraid that after enjoying the first book in this series, I found the second disappointing. Part of what I enjoyed about the first book was the localized setting and immediate problem; the depiction of Meralda as a working mage, struggling to sat ...more
All the Paths of Shadow by Frank Tuttle

I found this a very pleasant and enjoyable gaslight-fantasy novel. It's not complex or high-concept, but it offers entertaining, inoffensive, amusing escapism, which is really all I ask for most of the time. All The Paths of Shadow has a strong and s ...more

I enjoyed this YA novel about a disease that leaves a generation of children with psychic abilities and leads to the political and economic collapse of the U.S.; the concept and setting were very interesting, and the characters likeable. I have to co ...more

This short book is a nice change from the simple/minimalist lifestyle books that concentrate on decluttering physical space. It begins with the most difficult, but logical, place to start -- one's own mind -- and then moves toward more physical envir ...more

After watching the two Detective Dee movies, I wanted to find out where it all came from, and started here since the first novel isn't on Kindle. It's definitely not the cinematic Dee, but as a historical Chinese mystery, the book stands up just fine ...more
The Unearthly by Laura Thalassa

This is very much a wish-fulfillment novel for young-adult girls. It has flashes of wry humor that suggests the author also wants to appeal to a more mature audience, but in the end the protagonist has just a little too much going for her (beauty, po ...more

“There ain't a man in the world cares about a woman's past until he's thinking of her in his future.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

“A clockwork heart can't replace the real thing.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart

“Huh? Oh you have a hidden agenda, do you?" She laughed. His straight-faced humor always surprised her. "You promised me you didn't."
"There is nothing hidden about it," he replied. My objective is obvious. I've decided I'd rather have you describe me as 'sweet' than a 'slagging pain in the tailset.'"
"Really?"
"Well..." he looked up from the bag. "Maybe not in public."
"I might be able to confine myself to saying it in private, if you gave me a reason." Taya met his eyes, and he blushed.”
Dru Pagliassotti, Clockwork Heart
