Book Review: Dragons of Spri..

Book Review: Dragons of Spring Dawning by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

Oh come on, you couldn’t have thought I’d review Dragons of Autumn Twilight and Dragons of Winter Night but fail to review Dragons of Spring Dawning could you? Good, because if you’d thought I wouldn’t review the third book in the Chronicles quartet, you’d have been wrong. Once again, we have death and betrayal in […]

First Lines Fridays – August 19, 2022

Today’s first lines are… Tika Waylan straightened her back with a sigh, flexing her shoulders to ease her cramped muscles. She tossed the soapy bar rag into the water pail and glanced around the empty room. And the book is…. Have you started the Dragonlance Chronicles? If so, what do you think of them?

Book Review: Dragons of Wint..

Book Review: Dragons of Winter Night by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

I have to say, if you’re looking for a fantasy book with suspense, intrigue, death, and betrayal, you’d do well to pick up Dragons of Winter Night by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman. First things first – be aware that when you start Dragons of Winter Night, you’ll be starting about a month after the […]

Book Review: Dragons of Autu..

Book Review: Dragons of Autumn Twilight by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

I first stepped into the world of Krynn – and Dragonlance, in 2002 with The Legend of Huma. I was working at a little used bookstore in Texas and had noticed that the small rack of Forgotten Realms and Dragonlance books we had got a lot of attention – and purchases. I enjoyed The Legend […]


A Good Girl’s Guide to..

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson

If there is one thing I do like, it is a good mystery. This one was definitely one of the good ones. The first thing you learn in A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder is that Sal Singh killed Andie Bell. At least that’s what everyone in town believes. Except Sal’s family and one other […]


Blood Heir by Amélie Wen Zh..

Blood Heir by Amélie Wen Zhao

In case you didn’t know, this book is basically a retelling of Anastasia with magic and fantasy built in. Let me tell you, it works. I love the concept of the Affinites and their affinities. I love that it isn’t just your basic elements, but that Affinites could have any number of things for their […]


Thunderhead by Neal Shusterm..

Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman

SPOILER ALERT: There are a couple of spoilers given in this review. I apologize, but I found it very hard to talk about the book without giving anything away. If you’re looking for a second novel in a trilogy or series to frustrate the crap out of you, this one will do nicely. I’m not […]


Scythe by Neal Shusterman

Scythe by Neal Shusterman

When this was chosen as the book for the Barnes & Noble YA Book Club for December, I was a bit disappointed. Up until December, all of the books had been new releases, so it didn’t make sense to me for them to choose Scythe. Then I figured maybe they’d do all three from December […]

Reverie by Ryan La Sala

Reverie by Ryan La Sala

When the Barnes & Noble book club chose this book for the January book club, I was a little leary. I actually had this book from NetGalley and just couldn’t get into it. I tried for months to get into the book and just couldn’t do it. But, I hate to miss a book club, […]


The Fountains of Silence by ..

The Fountains of Silence by Ruta Sepetys

So I started reading this book and my eye started having issues, making it difficult to read. The book was interesting enough, I just couldn’t read for more than a couple pages at a time before my eye started hurting. So, I checked my library for the audiobook. They had it, but it was going […]


Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Ninth House was one of my most anticipated releases for October. I like Leigh Bardugo’s writing style. And I admit, I was curious to see if she can actually write adult fiction as well as she writes Young Adult fiction. The answer to that question is, she does. I picked up Ninth House for the […]

The Silent Patient by Alex M..

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

Holy Fricking Crap. That’s me putting this nicely. Why did I wait so long to read this book? Why did I not read it back when it first came out? Because seriously, I shouldn’t have. I really shouldn’t have. I’m going to start with a character assessment. Theo Faber: I truly liked him. He’s one […]
