A Spell for Chameleon by Piers Anthony

This was a book club pick, chosen for nostalgic reasons. I'd never read it. It started out okay - slightly misogynistic, but fantasy, time period in which it was written, blah, blah, blah, I can still enjoy the story. Then we get to the rape trial. W ...more

A little pissed at my husband for not giving me a heads up that this is the first book of a trilogy and the other two books have not been published yet. The ending was unsatisfactory and I will absolutely forget all the necessary details before the n ...more

I’m not crazy about books with disjointed timelines. I can never tell if I’m supposed to be missing implied context or if I actually missed something due to lack of reading comprehension. That nagging feeling that I should go back and reread really c ...more

Exactly what I hoped it would be on a gloomy day home sick. Not as good as the first Temeraire books. Better than the last Temeraire books. A little fantasy/YA tropey. Satisfying and comforting and re-readable. :-)

This book has no answers, only illustrations of the foster care system as it actually

Still processing this one. So many parallels with Greenfield. No answers, but a lot of insight into how my path came to diverge so dramatically from many of my peers.

Had this in my to-read list for years and then checked it out in a flurry of "what's currently available from the digital library" right before a family trip to the in laws. Struck out trying to make headway on The New Jim Crow and a biography of Cat ...more

The perfect sort of book for right now. I enjoyed it, but not too much. (When I enjoy them too much it pretty much kills me to read in the five minute chunks my life allows.) The characters were amazing.

As an aside, my biggest gripe with reading on

Perfect trip reading - engaging but not unputdownable. Lovely story with some funny, quirky characters. I don't think I liked this quite as well as Garden Spells, and I probably wouldn't read it a second time, but it was a good way to pass an airplan ...more
