"This review was originally posted at The Book Nympho

I don’t think of myself as liking fantasy very much but Jessica from Rabid Reads had a high opinion of this and we seem to like some of the same things, so I read it. There are limited humor and..." Read more of this review »

Galla and 23 other people liked Brandon Sanderson's review of Bunnicula:
Bunnicula by James Howe
"(This review is from 2004.)

Since it’s Halloween, I thought I’d talk about something frightening: Bunnies. Vampire bunnies. Ninja vampire bunnies. Okay, so, maybe not that ninja part. But definitely vampire bunnies—one in particular.

So, my roommate..." Read more of this review »

Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McGuire
"Reviewed by: Rabid Reads

There are two things I want to tell you in advance:

1. October Daye is one of my Top 5 Favorite UF Series.

Ilona Andrews
“Yes, I'm too mad to punish you right now. We'll talk about it when we get home. Go brush your teeth, comb your hair, put on dry clothes, and get the guns. We're going to Wal-Mart.”
Ilona Andrews, On the Edge

E.M. Forster
“It isn't possible to love and part. You will wish that it was. You can transmute love, ignore it, muddle it, but you can never pull it out of you. I know by experience that the poets are right: love is eternal.”
E.M. Forster, A Room with a View

J.K. Rowling
“This liberating discovery enables me to proceed without any fear that I might inadvertently influence you to abandon promising careers in business, law or politics for the giddy delights of becoming a gay wizard.”
J.K. Rowling

Laura Whitcomb
“The library smells like old books — a thousand leather doorways into other worlds. I hear silence, like the mind of God. I feel a presence in the empty chair beside me. The librarian watches me suspiciously. But the library is a sacred place, and I sit with the patron saint of readers. Pulsing goddess light moves through me for one moment like a glimpse of eternity instantly forgotten. She is gone. I smell mold, I hear the clock ticking, I see an empty chair. Ask me now and I'll say this is just a place where you can't play music or eat. She's gone. The library sucks.”
Laura Whitcomb, A Certain Slant of Light

Ilona Andrews
“What's that?"
"That's my attack poodle.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Bleeds
