How to Live on Mars: A Trusty Guidebook to Surviving and Thriving on the Red Planet
3.39
Mildly entertaining, as far as it went. Alas, the 'science' quotient was pretty much nonexistent. Definite nods to Heinlen in the writing style and pr ...more

Slightly Sinful (Bedwyn Saga, #5)
3.94
Haven't read any of the other books in the series, but perhaps I will--I liked the brief glances I got of them at the end, and wished he'd recovered s ...more

A Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire, #1)
4.44
**spoiler alert** Read to counter the Robert Jordan effect, since I'd heard this was a more readable epic fantasy. Not disappointed in the least, alth ...more

Shop Smart, Save More: Learn The Grocery Game and Save Hundreds of Dollars a Month

I realized about halfway through that I'd actually read most of this on her website, and that it annoyed me then, too. I think much of it is her tone, ...more

The Queen's Gambit (Leonardo da Vinci Mystery, #1)
3.31
A frustrating book. The writing style really annoyed me; I felt that Stuckart was waxing faaar too poetic and purple, and irritatingly trying to cram ...more

Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking

I'd heard quite a bit about this book, we're into making our own bread, and I keep dreaming of baguettes and boules gracing my kitchen, so we were pre ...more

Slightly Dangerous (Bedwyn Saga, #6)

Had only read one other book in the series, but it was Wulf who caught my interest, so I was looking forward to this. It doesn't so much pay homage to ...more

Simply Unforgettable (Simply Quartet #1)
3.80
A giant 'meh' from me. The whole 'snowed in' device is a guilty pleasure of mine, so I was trying to go with it but...meh. I quite liked Frances, and ...more

Romancing Mister Bridgerton (Bridgertons, #4)

An enjoyable read; Quinn was a good recommendation. I was hoping I'd like Colin's story, but he was just a bit too angsty and angry for the character ...more

Beyond Heaving Bosoms: The Smart Bitches' Guide to Romance Novels
4.00
An enjoyable book that had me laughing out loud in some places, as the authors deliciously and delightfully spork, spoof, and examine the more cringe- ...more

Avengers Academy, Vol 1: Permanent Record
3.78
As per usual for comics, has some sexist choke moments; lots of fun cameos and I like most of the academy class (sometimes in spite of how they're wri ...more

Army Talk: A Familiar Dictionary of Soldier Speech

To Sir Phillip, With Love (Bridgertons, #5)

Meh. Didn't like Phillip, who I couldn't ever quite empathize with. It's a bit hard to become infatuated with someone who is so disassociated from eve ...more

King, Ship, and Sword (Alan Lewrie, #16)

If only he would write with fewer italics, I might not feel as if I were reading a comic book. That said, actually a fairly enjoyable read. I'm intere ...more

Civil War Script Book

At least I saw how much worse the Civil War arc could have been....Hulk babies? Urgh.

What the Butler Saw: Two Hundred and Fifty Years of the Servant Problem

Informative and thorough; awkwardly (and delightfully) full of nostalgic snobbery.

Ehh. Enjoyable, as far as it went, but I couldn't find it quite funny enough to be comic or practical enough to actually be a self-help, either. Her a ...more
