The Gifted Adult by Mary-Elaine Jacobsen

Some parts of this resonated pretty well, and though I initially skimmed it on an ILL, I read enough to know that I'll probably want to own it to work through some of the suggestions and worksheets.

Although geared for adults, it refers back enough to

Prince Lestat by Anne Rice
Rate this book
Clear rating
Rice's return to the Vampire Chronicles was subpar. The first 1/3 of the book really dragged, and felt like she was simply writing short vignettes from her background notes. Some interesting characters were introduced, though the power creep was palp ...more

The Survival Guide for Parents of Gifted Kids by Sally Yahnke Walker
Rate this book
Clear rating
A book that gives a good overview of the general issues in dealing with gifted kids. A bit dated (1991), but much of the discussion still resonates for us. Like many parenting books, you'll take what you can from it and read others.

I wouldn't say I "liked this book" since it was pretty terrifying (particularly with 2 young kids)!

The book lays out some thoughts on causes of bullying, symptoms of bullies (and the bullied), and some ways to go about stopping this epidemic. Ultimat

I really liked this one as it shakes things up almost as much as Nagash! I was rooting for the Skaven as they were taking out the Dwarves, but one of the end deaths was really lame (hence the lack of 5 stars). I'm very interested to see how GW will e ...more

This one was ok. A bit cheesy in the end, but the Empire is definitely in trouble!

This was a fun read, particularly watching the haughty elves take a fall and learning the truth about Malekith. (Though that makes their prime god a bit of a DB given what his race went through).

The Forever Drug by Lisa Smedman

Pretty good; nice to read something from a shifter's perspective. The larger plot he was drawn into was interesting, as was the conclusion of his part in it.

Tails you Lose by Lisa Smedman

Not bad; saw the "twist" coming part way, but at least Smedman tried something different, even for the Shadowrun universe.

No-Drama Discipline by Daniel J. Siegel

A very good book describing (and reminding us of) techniques to use with our willful (strong, independent, amazing) kids. It refers to the science of the brain and its relation to our interactions, and gives some good examples of how to approach diff ...more
