Review: Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance

Hunt the Moon by Karen Chance My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars Chance must have thought read­ers were bored with the Cassandra/Mircea match because much of this book is spent with Cassie falling for Pritkin with­out real­ly being aware that she’s get­ting into dan­ger­ous ter­ri­to­ry. Palmer isn’t one of my favorite char­ac­ters. She isn’t an ass-kicker, […]

Review: Spellbound by Kelley Armstrong

Spell Bound by Kel­ley Arm­strong My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars Wak­ing the Witch and Spell Bound should tru­ly be read back to back. In fact, they should be read with 13 on hand, almost as a tril­o­gy with­in the series. At the end of Wak­ing the Witch, Savan­nah silent­ly thought that if it would reunite […]

Review: Aftermath by Ann Aguirre

After­math by Ann Aguirre My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars Leave it to Aguirre to take her hero­ine in a direc­tion that is appar­ent­ly piss­ing off at least half of her read­ers (those who expect­ed romance). Sir­an­tha Jax is in fine form in After­math, stay­ing strong and true to her­self through an all-new set of trials […]

Review: Killbox by Ann Aguirre

Kill­box by Ann Aguirre My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars Kill­box won’t make any sense with­out read­ing the pre­vi­ous three books, and I hon­est­ly feel that I should have gone back and re-read them before start­ing it. I was impa­tient for more fresh Aguirre after fin­ish­ing Shady Lady, though, and Kill­box is what I had on […]

Review: Shady Lady by Ann Aguirre

Shady Lady by Ann Aguirre My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars I have to give a fair­ly high rat­ing to a book that involves a woman who large­ly saves her­self from mul­ti­ple assas­sins (nat­ur­al and super­nat­ur­al) sent by the head of a drug car­tel. There are sexy men in her life (three, in fact), but she’s […]

Book Review: Blood Lite III: Aftertaste edited by Kevin J. Anderson

Blood Lite III: After­taste by Kevin J. Ander­son My rat­ing: 2 of 5 stars This anthol­o­gy is sup­posed to be humor­ous hor­ror. I have a mes­sage for Kevin J. Ander­son: gross­ness is not near­ly enough for humor. I hope vol­ume two was fun­nier (I haven’t read it yet), but if it was as bad as this […]

Book Review: Down These Strange Streets edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner R. Dozois

Down These Strange Streets by George R.R. Mar­tin My rat­ing: 4 of 5 stars This anthol­o­gy gath­ers sto­ries from authors who nor­mal­ly write in var­i­ous gen­res. The com­mon­al­i­ty is that each sto­ry is a mys­tery, and there’s a fan­tas­tic twist to each. Mar­t­in’s intro­duc­tion calls such sto­ries the “bas­tard stepchild” of mys­tery and hor­ror. Char­laine Harris’ […]

Book Review: Entangled edited by Edie Ramer

Entan­gled by Edie Ramer My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars I picked this anthol­o­gy up because all pro­ceeds go to the Breast Can­cer Research Foun­da­tion, which is a won­der­ful cause. Many of the authors’ lives have been touched by can­cer in one way or anoth­er, some first-hand. The vol­ume is Hal­loween-themed, as well. I don’t believe I’ve […]

Happy News

You are read­ing the blog of the newest board mem­ber of Grants to You, a won­der­ful non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion based in Prescott, Ari­zona. I’m going to be doing a lot of work involv­ing the web­site and serv­ing on a new com­mit­tee. I’m tick­led pink! In oth­er news, I got to intro­duce some­one to the Dres­den Files today! […]

Book Review: Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris

Dead Reck­on­ing by Char­laine Har­ris My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars For fluff, it’s got some real­ly dark scenes. It does­n’t have enough of a plot to be any­thing more than fluff, though. It absolute­ly does NOT stand alone, so don’t con­sid­er read­ing this book unless you’ve read all that went before it — you’ll be […]
