Prince of the Blood by Raymond E Feist

Of the many small but great delights in life, writing a review where you’re not quite sure what you’re going to say is well worth its place on the list. As such, writing this review of Raymond E Feist’s Prince of the Blood promises to be a joy. Note – while I am generally sticking […]

#musicmonday – Horse Outside by Rubberbandits

Welcome to another Music Monday. Sometimes I know exactly what I’m going to put out here. Sometimes I’ve got an idea of the rough terrain. Sometimes I have none of those things. Every idea seems good, but not quite right. So today I just went with something ridiculous. It is quite ridiculous. That’s it, that’s […]

Kushiel’s Avatar by Jacqueline Carey

Is a full review of a book where I’ve just finished a readalong, complete with extensive question, really necessary? I think so. I’ve still got things to say about Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Avatar. Most of the things amount to you should read the trilogy. Which is ironic if you read all the readalong posts and […]

The Art Collector by Katelyn Brehm

Now it only seems fair to note that usually when I talk about romance on this blog, I am talking old school about adventure stories, yo. As such, Katelyn Brehm’s The Art Collector, which is a straight up paranormal romance, is something of a departure for me. Still, I’ll try anything twice. Besides, Kat is […]
