Review: Marque and Reprisal by Elizabeth Moon

Mar­que and Reprisal by Eliz­a­beth Moon My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars Anoth­er decent, though not amaz­ing, book from Moon. I messed up in not doing my review as soon as I fin­ished, because I moved straight on to vol­ume three in the series, Engag­ing the Ene­my. Obvi­ous­ly, the series did get more inter­est­ing in book two! View […]

Review: Trading in Danger by Elizabeth Moon

Trad­ing in Dan­ger by Eliz­a­beth Moon My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars I want­ed to like Vat­ta’s War as much as I did The Ser­ra­no Lega­cy, but this one near­ly lost me at some points. Maybe it’s intend­ed for a young adult audi­ence? Con­sid­er­ing the age of the main char­ac­ter, that may be the case. Still, I […]

Review: The Peter Grant/Rivers of London series by Ben Aaronovitch

Lies Sleep­ing by Ben Aaronovitch My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars I just fin­ished Lies Sleep­ing after read­ing the entire series straight through, so this review is about the series as much as about the ulti­mate entry in it. Wow! I’ve been immersed in the mar­velous world Aaronovitch cre­at­ed for us, and it’s a shock com­ing back. […]

Review: The Serrano Legacy Series by Elizabeth Moon

Against the Odds by Eliz­a­beth Moon My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars I just fin­ished read­ing the entire Ser­ra­no Lega­cy series by Eliz­a­beth Moon, and I’m expe­ri­enc­ing fic­tion let­down syn­drome. You know, when you’ve been total­ly engaged in a mar­velous world that’s so believ­able, and then sud­den­ly, it’s over! It’s hard to come back to this world […]

Review: Serpentine by Laurell K. Hamilton

Ser­pen­tine by Lau­rell K. Hamil­ton My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars I’m hav­ing a lit­tle trou­ble fig­ur­ing out a rat­ing for this, the 26th (!) book in the Ani­ta Blake series.  On the plus side, the book kept me engaged to the point of being a dis­trac­tion when I need­ed to do oth­er things. Also, Hamilton […]

Review: Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman by Lindy West

Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman by Lindy West My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars For as long as I’ve been part of the size accep­tance move­ment (oh, excuse me, it’s “body pos­i­tive” now!), I’ve read sur­pris­ing­ly few books about it or by its lead­ers. I con­sid­er Lindy West one of those lead­ers. Just by being […]

Review: Lost Connections: Uncovering the Real Causes of Depression – and the Unexpected Solutions by Johann Hari

Lost Con­nec­tions: Uncov­er­ing the Real Caus­es of Depres­sion – and the Unex­pect­ed Solu­tions by Johann Hari I just fin­ished this book, which I lis­tened to while dri­ving. I find myself wish­ing that I’d read it on my Kin­dle, instead, in order to be able to take some notes. It’s a rich read, full of mentions […]

Review: The Annihilation Score by Charles Stross

The Anni­hi­la­tion Score by Charles Stross This is the sixth book of the Laun­dry Files and the first to be nar­rat­ed by Mo instead of her hus­band. The plot kept me thor­ough­ly engaged, and I enjoyed Mo’s voice — it was a nice change. I fin­ished the book utter­ly wrung out, and I think that […]

Review: Neogenesis by Sharon Lee and Steve Miller

Neo­ge­n­e­sis by Sharon Lee My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars First, let it be known that I am an unabashed fan­girl when it comes to Lee and Miller. That much has long been estab­lished. Should they care to pub­lish their gro­cery lists, I would most like­ly pur­chase and read them. That said, Neo­ge­n­e­sis is an amaz­ing book, […]
