Book Review: Thirteen by Kelley Armstrong

Thir­teen by Kel­ley Arm­strong My rat­ing: 5 of 5 stars Well, Arm­strong def­i­nite­ly closed the series with a bang. I enjoyed this vol­ume so much that I’m tempt­ed to go back and re-read the entire series just to have more right now. All the char­ac­ters we’ve got­ten to know are back: Clay, Ele­na, Jaime, Jere­my, Hope, Karl, […]

Book Review: Enthralled edited by Melissa Marr and Kelley Armstrong

Enthralled by Melis­sa Marr My rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars Jour­neys, lit­er­al or oth­er­wise, are the theme of this young adult anthol­o­gy. Appro­pri­ate­ly enough, it was con­ceived as the result of a book tour. “Giovanni’s Farewell” by Clau­dia Gray is a sweet, com­ing-of-age sto­ry of sorts. The twist is that it fea­tures a broth­er and sis­ter, twins, rather […]

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 […]

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 […]

Review: The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance edited by Trisha Telep

The Mam­moth Book of Para­nor­mal Romance by Trisha Telep My review rat­ing: 4 of 5 starsI’m extreme­ly sur­prised by how much I enjoyed this anthol­o­gy! I picked it up intend­ing to just read the sto­ries by authors I know I like—Kelley Arm­strong, Ilona Andrews, Car­rie Vaughn, Hol­ly Lisle, Jeaniene Frost, Maria V. Sny­der. I had […]

Books Books Books!

Yes, the girl and I man­aged a library run (to the GOOD library) on Fri­day. It took more time and ener­gy than expect­ed, of course, but we got a bunch of very good books.  I read My Big Fat Super­nat­ur­al Hon­ey­moon last night, with much gig­gling. The sto­ries were a bit uneven (nor­mal for an anthology), […]

Presentation Done, Good Reading

I can’t talk about the pre­sen­ta­tion. I might have flash­backs. The fact that BOTH my class­es that start next week have group projects is NOT giv­ing me a hap­py. How­ev­er, I did read Kel­ly Arm­strong’s lat­est Women of the Oth­er­world book, Per­son­al Demon, yes­ter­day, and then Dana Stabenow’s Pre­pared for Rage today. They were good. 

Happy Wednesday!

Sam and I had a very nice date night while Katie was out with her beau. He had start­ed mak­ing chili last night, fin­ished it tonight, and added corn muffins. I’m not a big fan of chili (I won’t eat it if Sam did­n’t make it), but it was a very sat­is­fy­ing meal. The girl is […]

Review: Exit Strategy by Kelley Armstrong

Cool under pres­sure. If they post­ed employ­ment ads for hit­men, that’d be the num­ber two require­ment, right after detail-ori­en­t­ed. A good hit­man must pos­sess the per­fect blend of per­son­al­i­ty type A and B traits, a con­trol freak who obsess­es over every cloth­ing fiber yet projects the demeanor of the most laid-back slack­er. After pulling a […]
