Good, solid books

Review: ‘The Doorknob Society’ by MJ Fletcher

I had a weird yet recurring thought while I was reading this book: I sure miss Harry Potter. That parallel universe sort of world where certain parts were everyday and familiar, but even better, many parts were not. People dress differently, there are... Read More | Share it now!

Whut I Red on My Sumer Vacashun: Part 4

A continuation of the Hourglass series, I found that I liked Timepiece better than the first book. The relationship between Kaleb and Lily is much more interesting than the relationship between the protagonists in Hourglass. The conflict, the discovery... Read More | Share it now!

Whut I Red on My Sumer Vacashun: Crystal Gardens by Amanda Quick

I like fantasy/paranormal books, though these days, it seems like they are mostly found in young adult. I am happy to say I discovered an author who writes adult books in this genre, so I read Crystal Gardens by Amanda Quick. According to her webpage,... Read More | Share it now!

Review: ‘Coren: Remnants of Betrayal’ by Morgun Wolf and Heyden Redding

One of my close friends and I are beyond similar regarding the types of books we like to read. So, many years ago, when she expressed her shock that I had not ever read The Hobbit, I jumped on it like a boulder-throwing giant on, well, a boulder. After... Read More | Share it now!

Review: ‘Midnight in Austenland’ by Shannon Hale

Charlotte Kinder, according to her acquaintances, is nice. Compliant. Not a stand-out. It is quite unexpected that not only does her husband, James, want to divorce her, but he has been having an affair. Her children are at that age where they don’t... Read More | Share it now!

Review: ‘Whispering Hills’ by Taryn Browning

Authors who offer up their books for a “read to review” are very brave. Handing over their work to a group of amateur writers is basically asking for a beating. It’s hard to review someone else’s work, especially when you might be hoping to... Read More | Share it now!

Quick and Dirty Reviews for March 2012: Books Rating 3/5 Stars

Nine of the 14 books I read this month received 3 Stars. Bel Canto by Ann Patchett (Fiction): I almost gave this book a 2. If it weren’t for the wonderful writing and the unique story, I would have. It is a favorite of one of my friends whose... Read More | Share it now!
