The Sandman: The Dream Hunters
4.45
I read this to compare with the original illustrated narrative version of Dream Hunters. It was good, but not as good as the first. It really started ...more

Debt of Bones (Sword of Truth, #0.5)
3.82
I gave up on this series awhile ago because it's really not all that good. Entertaining enough to get you out of a book slump...but still...not good. ...more

The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror 2008: Twenty-First Annual Collection

This book was a total surprise. I got it expecting to pick out a few of the better looking stories to read at most and I expected a lot of the stereot ...more

Dragon Sword and Wind Child (Tales of the Magatama, #1)

It took me a while to get into this book, but it wasn't the story's fault, I think it was the translation. It felt very cold and didn't draw me into t ...more

New Spring (Wheel of Time, #0)

I very much enjoyed this prequel to the WOT series. I think Jordan got back to style of writing that made me love the first few books in the series. I ...more

Dead Until Dark (Sookie Stackhouse #1)

Pure bubblegum. Although I enjoyed this book, it wasn't exactly food for thought. Harris' writing style isn't the best, there were many typos, the plo ...more

Marvel 1602
3.91
An all around win! Neil Gaiman introduces the characters of the Marvel Universe, but sets it 400 years ago in the year 1602. It's freakin' awesome. I ...more

Attack of the Ninja Frogs (Dragonbreath, #2)

I checked this out of the library because the author's name caught my eye. I used to frequent a certain nerdy art site and she was by far one of the b ...more

The Picture of Dorian Gray

Not at all what I was expecting, but I totally enjoyed this book. Wilde might be the wittiest author I've ever read. In fact, they might have made up ...more

The Sandman, Vol. 6: Fables and Reflections (The Sandman, #6)

Towers of Midnight (Wheel of Time #13)

Sanderson is really doing a good job wrapping up this series. So many of the flawed characters and bad plot lines are slowly being rewritten to make a ...more

The Good:

They definitely hired a better editor for this book. The only typos were at the back of the book, which I find pretty common in anything long

The Fionavar Tapestry (The Fionavar Tapestry #1-3)

The Sandman, Vol. 3: Dream Country (The Sandman, #3)

Temple of the Winds (Sword of Truth, #4)

Much, much better than the last book. A totally mind-numbing, fluffy, cheesy, escape of a book. Just what I was looking for.

Interesting use of prophec
