“Artemis Fowl” by Eoin Colfer

I read this via audiobook which I really recommend because the reader is excellent. I am willing to put money on this series being made into movies. The books are popular, the characters are unique and there’s pretty much nonstop action and comedy, with a little drama thrown in. Advertisements

“The Captain’s Bride” by Lisa Tawn Bergren

I liked this book. I wouldn’t say that I loved it, but it fills a certain niche. I downloaded the audiobook from the public library and listened to it off and on whenever I had to drive more than 30 minutes. It took a while to get through the whole thing and I had to re-download it many many times. The library probably thinks I’m obsessed with it.

“Poison Study” by Maria V. Snyder

I loved this book! It’s one of those books that’s shelved in YA but it really doesn’t matter because you get completely sucked in. I read it just a few evenings (which is very fast for me) and I found myself thinking about it all day at work.

I won’t give any spoilers because I know you’re going to go pick it up right away, but I’ll give you the basics. The story takes place in a fantasy world that vaguely resembles medieval Europe. At the beginning of the book a young woman, named Yelena, is in prison on a death sentence. One day she is offered a choice: take a job as the Commander’s food taster or take the noose.

"Space Junque – A Dystopian Fantasy" by LK Rigel

“Space Junque” is a dystopian near-future sci-fi novella about love, life and nuclear apocalypse. I thought the world Rigel created was very interesting – her vision of the future seems realistic and she used just enough techno-babble to be convincing. I liked her characters but felt like they weren’t fully developed (probably because the story […]

"Surviving Passion" by Maia Underwood

I liked this book! I’d give it a 6 out of 10. Maybe a 7, but you gotta be in the mood for it. It wasn’t exactly what I was expecting. I was looking for a post-apocalyptic romance novel, and while this was technically that, it wasn’t really the setting I was looking for.

"At Last Comes Love" by Mary Balogh

I’ve read several books by Mary Balogh and have enjoyed them all very much. This one was a Regency historical romance featuring a 30-year-old “Spinster” who has decided it’s finally time to get married. In a moment of panic – and to spite the man who jilted her 12 years ago – she decides to […]
