Kirsten Potter's narration of Gilman's classic short stories is perfection. If you are interested, the book is 99 cents on audible. PLEASE READ THE BOOK DESCRIPTION because I am too lazy to type up my own synopsis and the rest of my review hinges on ...more

War Bonds is not a five star book. It just isn't. I know that objectively. But I am throwing all the available stars at it anyway because it made me feel everything and think thoughts and ask questions and look for answers and cry happy tears.

Well that was a much appreciated mental break. Fun, immersive fantasy. While I appreciate dense, deep speculative fiction that makes you question everything, sometimes something light and frothy hits the spot. The Raven Ring is amusing, action packed ...more

Caught in Crystal by Patricia C. Wrede

The main character is a middle-aged mom. Do I need to repeat that? A middle-aged mom WITH A SWORD. Even if that was the only thing to recommend the book, it would be enough. But once again Wrede provides an entertaining fantasy story with all the exp ...more

The Harp of Imach Thyssel by Patricia C. Wrede

The middle books in a series are almost always hard to review. I've been known to copy and paste extensively. Again we have more stock fantasy. Easy, quick read. Entertaining without being thought-provoking. There is a place for thought-provoking spe ...more

“Drink your wine. Laugh from your gut. Burden your moments with thankfulness. Be as empty as you can be when that clock winds down. Spend your life. And if time is a river, may you leave a wake.”
N.D. Wilson, Death by Living: Life Is Meant to Be Spent

N.K. Jemisin
“I would savor every moment of my life that remained, suck its marrow, crunch its bones. And when the end came... well, I would not be alone. That was a precious and holy thing.”
