Best Reads of 2015

My favorite (new) reads of 2015 are as follows, in no particular order. I didn’t read that much this year – I didn’t have time. But it was still hard to whittle it down to a manageable least. I read a lot of AMAZING books this year. I usually pick just five, but it is… Continue reading Best Reads of 2015

Coffin Not Broken When Zombie Rises

I was reading an Anita Blake book. She’s raised a zombie, put it back and now they are digging up the grave, to see if there are problems with the zombie. So the characters dug and talked. If this was a modern grave, they would have to open the coffin. Even if something had gone… Continue reading Coffin Not Broken When Zombie Rises

Teaser Tuesday: Ink and Bone

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

I just started Ink and Bone and so far it sounds pretty good!

His divine wisdom can kiss my common arse. We blind and hobble half of the world through such ignorance, and I will not have it. Women shall study at the Serapeum as they might be inclined. Let him execute me if he wishes, but I have seen enough of minds wasted in this world. I have a daughter.

My daughter will learn.

– Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine

A Reason Not to Read the End First

Me, I read the end of a book all the time. I do it randomly, sometimes to find out if a character I like will survive, things like that. So last week I was reading the second Sharing Knife book, Legacy by  Lois McMaster Bujold. I read the end and then I read bits and… Continue reading A Reason Not to Read the End First

Q is for Queens: five favorite queens

It’s a struggle to find Q words to use to start a post. I figured I would list my favorite five queens in the stuff I’ve read. 1) Elyssa Yamato from the Vampire Queen series by Joey W. Hill. These books are hot, the world is really engrossing. Elyssa Yamato is a strong, sane queen… Continue reading Q is for Queens: five favorite queens
