I'm just starting this series and reading in order, so the story didn't have much emotional resonance for me. I've heard so much raving about Bones, t ...more

I enjoyed the books in this series for the most part, even though I thought they were REALY stretching the bounds of teen fairy tales. But this book? ...more

Dark Seductions: Tales of Erotic Horror

Loved it. Really interesting intersection of horror and Sex. I don't know that I would go so far as to call it "erotica" -- it's too disturbing to eve ...more

Ghost Story (The Dresden Files,  #13)
