A Path Begins (The Thickety #1) by J.A. White

I grabbed this off the library shelf partly because of the cover, partly because of its shape (a square!) and partly because of the blurb from Angie Sage and other middle grade authors. It was excellently written! Great characters, very interesting worldbuilding (pseudo-Puritan, but somehow worse), cool magical fantasy stuff that didn’t feel similar to

Grey Mask by Patricia Wentworth

This is the first in the Miss Silver series of mysteries, but it’s not the first that I’ve read. I accidentally read #14 or #17 or something like that several years back, but it was so good that I decided to go ahead and (eventually) read the entire series. It’s a long-running series, starting in

Skip Trace by Kelly Jensen and Jenn Burke

This is the 3rd Chaos Station book! I haven’t reviewed the first two here, but I enjoyed them and obviously kept reading the series. The first book is a second-chance lovers romance, with scifi thriller stuff! There’s super soldiers, a government conspiracy, outer space shenanigans, aliens, secrets, and kissing. And the second book builds off

Hello, happy Sunday, hope you’re doing okay, what sort of Pokemon have you caught, etc. I’m in a teeny reading slump at the moment, but I’ve just loaded a bunch of Hollis Shiloh books onto my Kindle so I’m hoping they’ll help me get through the bleh. Meanwhile, here’s what I read this week: I

Howdy! That was some break, there. It worked out great for me, though, as I think I finally got some of my blogging mojo back. I’m gonna try this weekly round-up thing again and see if I can stick to it. Meanwhile, I have been (semi) active on Twitter and VERY active on Goodreads, so

Here’s what I read from March 6th to March 12th! Super short reviews, because I haven’t blogged in almost a month. (School, work, life, you know. Stuff happens.) Shadows & Dreams by Alexis Hall is the second in the Kate Kane, Paranormal Investigator urban fantasy mystery series and it is almost as good as the

I am SO FAR BEHIND ON REVIEWS but this week is Spring Break for my grad school! So I have a little time to waste and I will waste it by writing very short reviews for books I read this month. Here’s what I read from February 28th to March 5th! Circuit Theory by Kirby

UGH, backlog! I really wish I’d done a better job of reviewing these things when I read them. Bah. Anyway, here’s what I read for the week of February 21-27! So it’s about this point that I abandoned my TBR and dove deep into the treasure trove that is the Brooklyn Public Library ebook collection.

I mean, eventually I’ll get back on schedule with these. For now, here’s what I read for the week of February 14-20, 2016. Dreamspinner had a sale on three Kim Fielding books over the weekend, and I couldn’t resist picking them up. I immediately read Astounding! , a m/m romance between a scifi managzine editor
