Review: A Plague of Giants by Kevin Hearne

A Plague of Giants by Kevin Hearne My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars This book rep­re­sents a major change from the Iron Druid series, so I worked hard to set aside my expec­ta­tions of Hearne based on lov­ing those. A Plague of Giants is every bit as well-writ­ten as that series, maybe even bet­ter! Still, I […]

What I’ve Been Up To

Lots of knit­ting. Lots and lots of knit­ting. (If you’re on Rav­el­ry, you can see my fin­ished projects.) My hands ache from the knit­ting, par­tic­u­lar­ly the left because I knit Con­ti­nen­tal. I think I may have to learn to knit Eng­lish just to swap off on occa­sion. We’ve been going out to hear more live […]

Book Review: The Gathering Edge by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

The Gath­er­ing Edge by Sharon Lee My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars A most sat­is­fy­ing entry in the Liaden Uni­verse series, num­ber 20 begins and ends with plen­ty of action. Indeed, the read­er hard­ly has time to take a breath for all the action! The char­ac­ters them­selves must be exhaust­ed — I feel so in their […]

Book Review: Positivity: Groundbreaking Research Reveals How to Embrace the Hidden Strength of Positive Emotions, Overcome Negativity, and Thrive by Barbara L. Fredrickson, Ph.D.

Pos­i­tiv­i­ty: Ground­break­ing Research Reveals How to Embrace the Hid­den Strength of Pos­i­tive Emo­tions, Over­come Neg­a­tiv­i­ty, and Thrive by Bar­bara L. Fredrick­son My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars I first read Fredrick­son’s sec­ond book, Love 2.0: How Our Supreme Emo­tion Affects Every­thing We Feel, Think, Do, and Become. It blew me away, and I’ve rec­om­mend­ed it hither […]

Book Review: Storm Front by Jim Butcher

Storm Front by Jim Butch­er My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars I just re-read Storm Front, after first read­ing it — well, I don’t even know how many years ago! Short­ly after it was first released, I think.  Now, it’s impor­tant to know that I sim­ply don’t re-read books. I find that too bor­ing, most of the […]

The End of an Era

I just fin­ished migrat­ing all the posts and com­ments for this jour­nal to https://technomom.dreamwidth.org/. I doubt that I will con­tin­ue to post here at all (not that I’ve been doing it much). If you wish to keep in touch, please do so there or (bet­ter yet) on Face­book or by read­ing the very occa­sion­al posts […]
