• Magic day

    There’s something magic about the solstice and on top of that, a full moon, too. For me, it’s all stirred into the fact that today is my birthday. I don’t have big plans. Mostly to write and to catch up…

  • Book Reviews: The Good and the Not So Good

    Both of these books came from Netgalley. First, the good. I’ve read some Janet Evanovich before, but I’m not a regular reader. I have enjoyed her stuff, though, and I thought Curious Minds, by Evanovich and Phoef Sutton, sounded fun.…

  • Reading

    I started out the year reading a whole bunch and then this month I’ve not been reading that much. In fact, only one book in the last couple of weeks. Finished it today. I didn’t really like it–it wasn’t particularly…

  • Back in the saddle again

    I received this book from Netgalley. Wow. I mean, wow. The Seventh Bride by T. Kingfisher (aka Ursula Vernon) is stunning. So freaking good. I’ve read three books so far this year that I think deserve big awards and this…

  • Book Review: Four Weddings and a White Christmas

    I received this book from NetGalley. I’ve been in the mood for some light romance and some Christmas reading. I don’t know why. It’s not even Halloween. Maybe it’s because of the recent shooting here in Oregon, and I just…

  • Book Review: Kill Box

    I received this book from NetGalley. Kill Box is a Thriller by Nichole Christoff. Today we’re starting with the description: Hardworking Jamie Sinclair can’t wait for the weekend. She plans to be off the clock and on the road to…
