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....

Sorcery & Cecelia by Patricia C. Wrede

Clear rating
I really enjoyed this. It was more along the style that I had expected the Glamourist series to be (which fell short of my expectations).

The style was different, too, which made the book all the more enjoyable for being a nice change of pace.

I have mixed feelings about this anthology. I put off the review until I figured out what was bothering me. The writing was all good. The art was delightful. Then I realized that I didn't like the different kinds of romance mixed into one anthology.

This was serious fun. It's written like a government information package being air dropped to isolated people during the zombie outbreak. It's fact told through fiction - something that we don't normally see - and it was fabulous.

This book suffered less from the pacing issues of the first book, but there were a few places where the book’s plot sagged for the benefit of the worldbuilding. It probably wouldn’t be as noticeable if I was reading as opposed to listening an ...more

It was OK. I really feel like the blurb and the title had nothing to do with the actual book. This isn't for casual readers; this is for writers.

Honestly, this should have been promoted along the same lines as King's On Writing. Half writing advice,

I struggled a lot with this one. Parts of it where fine, such as the Archer POV chapters. I confess I was skimming and later skipping non-Enterprise main crew chapters by the mid-way point. I just didn't care about them. I was really disappointed ...more
