  • Covers

    After looking through one of those blogs that is dedicated to bad book covers (and seeing a few that I’ve read as well as the one I am currently reading), my husband pointed out that we had some books with covers that were quite possibly worse than any of those other covers (personally, I think that is debatable although I think they are right up there among the worst).

  • The Leaning Pile of Books

    This week I got some books ordered off my wish list that didn’t arrive on time for my birthday and two review copies (one ARC).

So it was a pretty good week. But first, a little about what will be coming up… Yesterday I wrote up a review of Tsunami Blue […]

According to the author’s forum and a Twitter comment she made, there are two sequels to The Gaslight Dogs planned, although it sounds as if they are not yet under contract. This novel definitely feels incomplete on its own since there are still a […]
