Sucker Punch by Laurell K. Hamilton My rating: 3 of 5 stars Boring! If I hadn’t been having trouble finding enough to read, I wouldn’t have finished it. I thought there was too much talking in Serpentine, but this volume takes the cake. While Anita is ostensibly in a small Michigan town because a therianthrope has […]
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 […]
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 […]

I really needed another fiction author to follow, right? But I’ve seen this series of books about a werewolf named Kitty, and I finally got a chance to read them. I finished the first, Kitty and the Midnight Hour, today and jumped right into Kitty Goes to Washington. I have Kitty Takes a Holiday all […]
I honestly didn’t think Laurell K. Hamilton had it in her, but A Lick of Frost moved me to tears in spots. She managed real romance. I don’t even like reading romances, and I really hate crying, but I couldn’t help it. I even found a quote to keep. I don’t want to give out any […]
