I've read a couple of the Archie/Gretchen Chelsea Cain books. However, I stopped reading them when the author kept churning out book after book in that series and the quality started declining. I checked out One Kick because I figured that a new seri...more

When it comes to The Missing Place, I'm kind of annoyed. Mainly because it's one of those books that started out great, continued being great, and then when the end rolls around, you're left highly disappointed as to the outcome. So, I have to mesh m...more

Holy mother of boredom, Batman!

I just cannot believe how uninterested I was in a book that had a fantastic premise. I mean from the synopsis, it seemed as though it was going to have a little bit of everything. Intrigue! Sea voyages! Pirates! Enterta...more

And I add yet another run of the mill book to my read roster this year.

What Strange Creatures was sort of a strange (no pun intended) book for me. It wasn't a bad book...and upon finishing it I realized that there wasn't anything that I particularly...more

Conversion is one of those books that for me, just gets a higher rating than it probably deserves due to two things: One, it was described as literary and I tend to find books that are described as such somewhat boring. So, the fact that this wasn't...more

Sigh. Yet another book with a fantastic premise bites the dust...

I wanted to love Servants of the Storm, I really did. It had all the makings of a novel that would appeal to me. It was set in the South (and I'm a sucker for southern fiction), it had...more

Season of the Dragonflies was one book that I had just expected to fall in love with. I love magical realism and I love Sarah Addison Allen's books (which this book was compared to), so I thought all of those elements would add up to something truly...more

I tend to love books about the circus. There's just something about them that's so magical even if there are not magical elements in the story. They're just utterly captivating. While I did like The Language of Silence, I felt that that enchantment I...more

I'm one of those readers that's okay with books that have very little plot. I don't need a rollicking plot or tons of action to get pleasure from a book. However, if you are going to write a book that has absolutely no discernible plot (or very littl...more

“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.”
Jeanne d'Arc

Diane Duane
“Reading one book is like eating one potato chip.”
Diane Duane, So You Want to Be a Wizard

“..."Fun?" you ask. "Weren't feminists these grim-faced, humorless, antifamily, karate-chopping ninjas who were bitter because they couldn't get a man?" Well, in fact the problem was that all too many of them HAD gotten a man, married him, had his kids, and then discovered that, as mothers, they were never supposed to have their own money, their own identity, their own aspirations, time to pee, or a brain. And yes, some women indeed became bad-tempered as a result. After all, no anger, no social change.”
Susan J. Douglas

Neil Gaiman
“[D]on't ever apologize to an author for buying something in paperback, or taking it out from a library (that's what they're there for. Use your library). Don't apologize to this author for buying books second hand, or getting them from bookcrossing or borrowing a friend's copy. What's important to me is that people read the books and enjoy them, and that, at some point in there, the book was bought by someone. And that people who like things, tell other people. The most important thing is that people read... ”

Stephen King
“Books are the perfect entertainment: no commercials, no batteries, hours of enjoyment for each dollar spent. What I wonder is why everybody doesn't carry a book around for those inevitable dead spots in life.”
Stephen King
