Rereading Wheel of Time: The Shadow Rising (Book 4)

ETA: Check out the clip from the audio version of this book at the bottom of my review. I’ve been reading the series in audio format, and if you’re into that kind of thing, you should definitely give this one a try. My trek back through the world of the Wheel of Time continues with […]

Rereading Wheel of Time: The Dragon Reborn (Book 3)

Years ago I heard that Jordan initially planned this 14-volume series as a trilogy. Rereading it, I think that perhaps, at the end of the first book, he might have had a chance at that. It would have involved him taking the easy and simpler road, but it would have been possible. By the end […]

Rereading Wheel of Time: The Great Hunt (Book 2)

My journey back through the 14-volume Wheel of Time Series continues with book 2, The Great Hunt. I think this is where the series really begins to take off. Rand is already no longer the boy he was when it all began just a few months earlier, but he still fears and mistrusts his destiny. […]

Rereading Wheel of Time: The Eye of the World (Book 1)

It seems so many years ago that I got caught up in this larger than life series. I discovered it during my college years, nearly 15 years ago, and read the books faithfully through book 9. And though I had complaints, I didn’t give up on it even then, I simply could not remember enough […]

Book Review: Alien Proliferation

This series manages to remain engaging as our heroine, Kitty, gives birth in a rather dramatic (melodramatic?) way. Her husband, Jeff, survives her labor pains — barely. Then, of course, all heck breaks loose. An old friend from high school barely escapes goons intent on killing her, there are traitors who need unmasking, and evil […]

Book Review: Cold Days by Jim Butcher

Dresden is BACK! Not that I was worried, but after the disappointing Ghost Days (#13), I was eager to reconnect with the Harry I knew. Cold Days is the 14th (yes, that’s right) novel in an impressively long series — impressive because I’m still eager for more! This series doesn’t stagnate. With each new book, […]

Book Review: Alien in the Family

Alien in the Family is the third book in this bizarre comic-book style science fiction series that I continue to read for reasons beyond understanding. It’s like when you’re watching a really bad movie or TV series, and you know it’s bad, but it’s bad in a specific way, and you can’t take your eyes […]

Book Review: Alien Tango

The second volume in the super-sexy alien fantasy series follows the style of the first, so if you liked it, you’ll like this one too. If you didn’t like it, you won’t like this one. If you’re like me and are not sure why you’re reading, you’ll still wonder, but you’ll probably keep reading. 🙂 […]

Book Review: Lucky Penny

What a wonderful, heartwarming story. This actually had me in tears at one point, which is not at all easy to do. It has been too long since I’ve read one of Catherine Anderson’s novels. I was thrilled to see this one come along at the library, and not the least bit disappointed when I […]
