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, […]

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 […]

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 […]
