Jacob’s Recent Updates

Once Upon a Rose by Laura Florand
"Way too quick, and too much of a setup novel.

But the openness is refreshing - every time Layla says the honest thing instead of the expected thing, I want to clap - and the family dynamics are fantastic. Even if everything is too rushed to be com..." Read more of this review »
The Beautiful Ones by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
"The world-building is a tad peculiar in this alt-universe romance with a late-Victorian, fin-de-siecle feel: we've got countries we've never heard of, but our main setting is Loisal, in which everyone has French names. The Beautiful Ones are the b..." Read more of this review »
Savour the Moment by Nora Roberts
"This began well. A (rather obvious) John Donne quote was thrown in at the beginning (ya know, the famous one from 'The Good Morrow'). In retrospect, this had no specific relevance to the book. If it did, maybe this would have got more stars.

Bio Rescue by S.L. Viehl
"I loved this book until the end. That lost a full star and almost more.

This is a convoluted story with a wonderful heroine, great world and a dash of romance. It really didn't deserve such an ending. If you are writing sci fi, stick with it. Addin..." Read more of this review »
Bed of Roses by Nora Roberts
" :) I totally get that. "
Wallbanger by Alice Clayton
" Well, thank you for the PSA. Though it wasn't needed, personally, I think more men (and women, frankly) should be sensitive to the variability and ind ...more "

While not marked as part of a series, it's clear that Kari's brother and best friend are a recent romance and I eventually connected the dots to the book Chances Are. It's obvious that Abramson looooves Ben and Maya and they feature prominently here. ...more

G.K. Chesterton
“It does not, in the conventional phrase, accept the conclusions of science, for the simple reason that science has not concluded. To conclude is to shut up; and the man of science is not at all likely to shut up.”
G.K. Chesterton, The Thing

Joss Whedon
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the road less traveled by and they CANCELLED MY FRIKKIN' SHOW. I totally shoulda took the road that had all those people on it. Damn.”
Joss Whedon

Julie James
“You men can be such boneheads about these things. She doesn't know you the way I do. She's vulnerable right now. Her ex turned out to be an asshole and you come riding in-"
"There was no riding."
"-being the good guy, looking the way you do"-Brooke gestured to him-"wanting to talk and slow things down and be all sensitive with your coffee and your little blanket. What woman could resist that? My God, why didn't you just cuddle a puppy shirtless while you were at it?”
Julie James, Suddenly One Summer

Terry Pratchett
“People who are rather more than six feet tall and nearly as broad across the shoulders often have uneventful journeys. People jump out at them from behind rocks then say things like, "Oh. Sorry. I thought you were someone else.”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!

Terry Pratchett
“A book has been taken. A book has been taken? You summoned the Watch," Carrot drew himself up proudly, "because someone's taken a book? You think that's worse than murder?"
The Librarian gave him the kind of look other people would reserve for people who said things like "What's so bad about genocide?”
Terry Pratchett, Guards! Guards!
