Aoife’s Recent Updates

Mythago Wood by Robert Holdstock
"Enraging misogynist heaving bullshit. Won the World Fantasy Award in the 1980s. Why am I not surprised.

The premise of this book is that archetype creatures, mythagos, arise in the wood plucked from human minds. You will be staggered to learn that..." Read more of this review »

The Strange Case of the Big Sur Benefactor by Jess Faraday

Unlike the two other Jess Faraday books I read, this isn't a lone wolf story. The heroine - Rosetta Stein, a translator, yes you can groan now - teams up with her brother Franklin (Frank for short, so he's Frank Stein, yes you can groan now) and his ...more

Well...this was The Affair of the Porcelain Dog but lesbian, with steampunk, in France and with an inexplicable Inspector Javert as side character. Which sounds like it would be very different but the bare bones are the same: lone wolf against the wh ...more
To Davy Jones Below by Carola Dunn
" Yeah it really sticks out...but I still enjoyed the book a lot (and there's nothing like it in the rest of the series so I'll just live with it XD) "

That was nice, nothing more and nothing less. I'm all there for crime novels that just happens to feature a gay character without being a romance but this simply didn't captivate me. Ira wasn't particularly likeable, the plot average and a bit too mu ...more

Justin did not expect any answers to the advert he - or rather one of his friends - put out to find a wife. He has enough money to live comfortably but he isn’t really rich his home - Greyfriar’s Abbey -

This was badly researched, in bad taste and boring. Full review closer to the release date

The Third Mrs. Durst by Ann Aguirre

*malicious grin*

This book is everything.

You don’t even fucking KNOW.

I just finished it and my fingers are actually shaking as I try to type out this review. Because adrenaline.

Aoife and 2 other people liked Emma's status update
Emma is on page 691 of 832 of Weltensturm: "Wie ein geisterhafter Quanten-Wert wurde Liebe erst dann wahr, wenn man sie gegen den Rest der Welt maß."

Ich mag das Buch und seine Mischung aus Technik und Gefühlen, Krieg und persönlichen Konflikten, Geheimnissen und KI.
Aoife and 16 other people liked Steelwhisper's review of The Escort's Tale:
The Escort's Tale by M.J. Edwards

Yes, indeed, I *saw* the word "escort" in the title.

To my defense, I keep reading escort books in the hope of - one day - finding one which acknowledges what it means to be a prostitute, what it entails, what it does to people and how it changes..." Read more of this review »

Yes that cover was what drew me to it as well (and ships...I like ships)

Kaora That is the book I was referring to. The cover is awesome. I'm a sucker for sea monsters. I'm still debating whether or not to request it.

Kitty (I solemnly swear that I am up to no good) Only just saw your cute pawing kitten on my wall now and it is sooo frigging cute, thanks for accepting my request :)
Here is another quick picture of a cat before we start very seriously discussing books...

We weren't I was just stalking watching your reviews (because I always think 'Aahhhh, what if they don't want to be my friend???')

Schokominza Jaaa ich weiß, das ist so toll da! :)) Ich hätte da auch Stundenlang herumhängen können! :D Und das Cafe Sherlock ist so urgemütlich, mit Kuchen, den die Chefin noch selber backt und rüberbringt - der war vielleicht lecker :D
Da kann man eigentlich mal öfter hinfahren, so weit ist es von mir aus nicht und die Eifel an sich ist ja schon einen Ausflug wert :)

Graham Parke Hey, great to have you aboard ;)
