Not very suspense-y (that gets ignored for the middle 80% of the book and then gets wrapped up right quick) and maybe too much dog. I mean, Tricks was basically the dog version of a plot moppet. She was definitely cute and stuff but the dog should no ...more

I rolled my eyes hard at the manufactured conflict but this is some for real, straight-up Lisa Kleypas-style crack.

This book has made me infinitely more excited to read Devil in Spring. I was a little apprehensive about what seems like a flagrant h

Starts off very well with good chemistry between the leads and charming secondary characters but it devolves into a comedy of errors that is more annoying than funny. It also relies heavily on several coincidences that simply stretch credulity and so ...more

This is an homage to Rose Daughter which I loved so much (that I'm now rereading it). But I do really just love Beauty and the Beast stories and this is very charming one.

This was such an interesting story about unintended consequences and it had some pretty cool artwork but it was just a lot of pages for not a lot of happenings. It did very well at establishing tone and character, but I felt like I was flipping throu ...more

Brannon (or Brennan or Brannan) being into Hannah from their youth (but not pursuing her because of the age difference) seemed too convenient. It definitely felt like being told instead of shown that he had been secretly into her the whole time and i ...more

Heir to the Shadows by Anne Bishop

So, basically identical to Daughter of the Blood but with less sexual torture. (view spoiler) It's 50 pages of some bullshit, 400 pages of little-to-no plot, then 50 pages of Jaenelle throwing down.

These books are very charming, but need some editing help. Palatable and palpable aren't really synonyms and there were some spelling/capitalization inconsistencies (Cleatus this one time and sugar was sometimes Sugar and sometimes Sugar was sugar). ...more

Maurice Sendak
“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”

“I'm Min's fairy godmother, Charm Boy,' Liza said, frowning down at him. 'And if you don't give her a happily ever after, I'm going to come back and beat you to death with a snow globe.'

What happened to "bibbity bobbity boo"?' Cal asked Min.

That was Disney, honey,' Min said. 'It wasn't a documentary.”
