  • Eona May Reading

    Going to BEA both hindered and helped May as a month for reading.  It really hindered it in the beginning since I was so busy getting ready to go, but taking the bus from Maine to New York and back gave me a lot of time to make up for it!  Because of that, I finished 2 books in the last week and saved the month from having only 2 books read.  Once again, I’m going to give some brief […]

  • Deathless April Reading

    Just like March, I finished one book on the first of the month and just missed 5 books for the month.  This is a little late, but I decided to post it anyway since I’ve decided to try to say a little bit about each book in these each month – just in case you don’t want to read the whole verbose review. Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente (Review) It’s Catherynne M. Valente, which means it’s a pretty awesome book […]

  • March Reading

    So close to 5 books this month, missing it by just one day!  The past couple of weeks have been busy, but I’m hoping to get back to writing my review of Deathless by Catherynne M. Valente soon.  Especially considering I’m going to have another new review to write before too long at the rate at which I’m going through Alison Goodman’s Eon – I’m starting to think I’m going to be very glad to have Eona around when I’m […]

  • February Reading

    It must be the winter reading doldrums – two slow reading months in a row.  This time it was mostly because it took a long time to finish one book since I finished one book the very first day of the month and didn’t finish it until the day before the end of the month.  I’m a good percentage of the way through another book now, though, so I’m hoping that means this month will be better, especially since I […]

  • January Reading

    It was so close to being four books, but I technically finished the fourth on February 1 so it doesn’t count.  I would have been pleased with that number since it took me a long time to read the first book.  Books read in January are: 1. A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge (review) 2. Late Eclipses (Toby Daye #4) by Seanan McGuire (review forthcoming closer to March) 3. Dust (Jacob’s Ladder #1) by Elizabeth Bear (review in […]

  • December Reading

    There are no books for this week (unless you count the crockpot cookbook I bought, but that’s not quite the same) so the December reading post will be the Sunday substitute.  I’m mostly taking the weekend off since it’s the end of my vacation, but next week I’m hoping to get started on the next reviews I need to write (The Folding Knife by K. J. Parker and Memory by Lois McMaster Bujold) or perhaps the post on a book […]
