Reviews: Various Short Stories

I just fin­ished read­ing a bunch of dif­fer­ent short sto­ries that have been lurk­ing in var­i­ous pro­grams on my iTouch. While they are reviewed in sep­a­rate entries on GoodReads, I’m going to try to put the reviews in one blog post.

Book Review: Night’s Edge

Night’s Edge by Mag­gie Shayne

My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars “Dancers in the Dark” by Char­laine Har­ris is set in the same uni­verse as the South­ern Vampire/Sookie Stack­house sto­ries, but with none of the incred­i­bly annoy­ing char­ac­ters. How refresh­ing!

Review: At Grave’s End by Jeaniene Frost

At Grave’s End by Jeaniene Frost

My review

rat­ing: 4 of 5 starsCat is def­i­nite­ly com­ing into her own now, and her rela­tion­ship with Bones is por­trayed far more health­ily than most in the para­nor­mal romance cat­e­go­ry. I love the fact that she demands that he per­mit her to stand as […]

I give up. I just don’t care what hap­pens to any­body in this book. Back to the library with it!

Review: Spectre by Phaedra Weldon

Spec­tre by Phae­dra Wel­don

My review

rat­ing: 3 of 5 starsH­mm. Spec­tre feels less like a sequel to Wraith than a chap­ter two, if that makes any sense. Both books are full-sized nov­els, but they’re so close­ly relat­ed that book two wouldn’t make any sense with­out hav­ing read book 1 (and the […]

Review: The Atrocity Archives by Charles Stross

The Atroc­i­ty Archives by Charles Stross

My review

rat­ing: 5 of 5 star­sI don’t give many 5-star rat­ings, but The Atroc­i­ty Archives deserves one. You may need to read it with a web brows­er open to look up ref­er­ences using Wikipedia or Google, but if you enjoy Torch­wood, Men in Black, […]

Review: New Moon by Stephanie Meyer

I fin­ished read­ing New Moon, which was much, much more dra­mat­ic (emo­tion­al­ly) than Twi­light. As in, Bel­la goes into a zom­bie state for months, and the book just has blank pages with the names of each month as place holders–October, Novem­ber, Decem­ber, Jan­u­ary, etc. I (and most every­one I know) have han­dled divorce bet­ter than […]

Vampyres of Hollywood Review is Up

The review is more detailed than what I post­ed here.

TCM is pret­ty cool, if you’re will­ing to read new books by unproven authors and review them. Hope, you’d prob­a­bly do real­ly well with it–lots of them are eBooks, which I have trou­ble with read­ing on a screen. They have sep­a­rate mail­ing lists to […]

Review: Sunshine by Robin McKinley

Wow. That was a good book.

It was a lit­tle hard for me to get into at the begin­ning. This excerpt is from the first chap­ter, and if you don’t feel as–jangled?–as I did, per­haps it’s just me. But I kept at it, because there was so def­i­nite­ly some­thing there.
