I was curious to see how Precious would fill her time on holiday. I would have loved to see her and

I'm erring on the side of favoring Jim Hines on this one. I almost gave it three stars. I really loved the fun of his other two series, and this one has been a bit darker and action oriented to me. I'm still stuck on the fact that I love the idea of ...more

I may be overly generous with the 5 stars. But darn it, I got sucked into this book so quickly. I was so happy to be reading something I really enjoyed. And then the cover glowed in the dark on my nightstand and I had to contain my happy dance for fe ...more

I read a lot of books with overlapping themes. Business books, and sociology books, and these type that are a combo of both. So I accept that I will re-read studies about fewer choices being better, the scary bridge/nice lady adreneline rush story, t ...more

Ok, so let's just get this out of the way: I like Maria Snyder books. I am not super critical of them. They are fun, fastpaced, a little action, a little romance, a little magic...sold! So I'll start with the cons, cause the positives are the same fo ...more

“Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don't.”
Bill Nye

“Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.”
Marc Hack

“There is that great proverb—that until the lions have their own historians, the history of the hunt will always glorify the hunter.”
Chinua Achebe "The Art of Fiction" 1994
