Testing Testing. Is this thing on? Looks like it is!


Now, I loved my old site with its sticky notes (done in my own handwriting, I might add). However, it was nigh impossible to add book information pages. For the last several months, The Engineer and I have been looking for a blog template that was easy enough for me to use, but could still be customized to work with my book information pages....

The Demons We See by Krista D. Ball
" So, this ended up being a great book. A quick moving story involving mages, slaves, and a society on the brink of war because of their antiquated religious beliefs.

I've settled on a 3 for this book, but I'm not sure if it's actually the best rating. This book is excellent for anyone wanting a different urban fantasy. This one is kinda like Castle meets Brothers Grimm. Fairy tales are real and manifest in normal ...more

While I enjoyed Unguilded more, this was still an enjoyable read. I liked the main characters, though I did want someone to lock Brenna in her room on occasion ;)

It was a fun S&S, easy to read, and I look forward to the next in the series.

I thought that I would this one, since I used to be a fan. But I made it only a few chapters before I realized how much I've begun to loathe all of these characters. The G chapters, especially, are grating. I used to really like her, but her POV chap ...more

I really enjoyed this book. My only issue was that the pacing in the early chapters was off and made the book sag. But once she reaches the city and delivers her message (about 40% through the book), the plot doesn't stop to take a breath.

Ha! This was a cute novella. I'd give it a four, except that I'm not a big fan of "love at first sight, let's get married" - even though it does work for the story.

Loads of Norse fun, plus goats. You can't go wrong with goats.

I really enjoyed this book. It is romance first, fantasy second - which was exactly what I was in the mood for. It uses the "romance" language more than most fantasy books, which I can see throwing off fantasy readers who don't read romance. But I wa ...more
