Meg Cabot’s written a book about vampires. And, if you’re anything like me, you’re thinking, “Another book about vampires? Really? Gimmie a break.” Yes, more vampires. But Cabot puts her own spin on it–her main character, Meena Harper, hates vampires and all the hype that surrounds them, although she doesn’t […]

Yeah, buddy–finally got my Nextflix working though my Wii and, therefore, on my TV. I know, I know. It sounds stupid to get so excited about it but I’m absolutely thrilled. Technology does that to me. Of course, it also helps that I’m easily amused. And there’s a ton of […]

I love this series (Urban Fantasy, Adult). I’ve loved it from the very first book, when we first met wizard Harry Dresden, to this book, the twelfth in the series. CHANGES provided me with exactly the kind of quick-paced, high action Harry fix I needed. It’s been a while (seems […]

PERCHANCE TO DREAM by Lisa Mantchev was magically fantastic, a great second book in the Théâtre Illuminata trilogy. Here’s the back cover blurb: Growing up in the enchanted Théâtre Illuminata, Beatrice Shakespeare Smith learned all about every play ever written, but she didn’t know that she, too had magic. Now, […]

You know those stories that just stick with you? The ones that, while maybe not the absolute best book in the entire world that you want to read over and over, you can’t seem to stop thinking about? (Have you had enough with the rhetorical questions?) CANDOR by Pam Bachorz […]
