  • Visiting Another World - Welcome to Westeros

    Lately, my reading time has been spent in Westeros , a world created by George R. R. Martin for his series, A Song of Ice and Fire . My son is a longtime Martin fan, and many library customers are as well: all are anxiously awaiting Book 5 in the set. Meanwhile, HBO is producing a TV series based on...

  • Book Characters as old friends

    Long-running series sometimes grow a bit stale, but some authors are great about keeping their characters alive, growing, and interesting. I was lucky enough this past month to revisit three old friends. Kinsey Millhone , the prickly PI from Sue Grafton's Alphabet mysteries, shows up in U is for...

  • Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict

    I am a bit of a Jane Austen fan. Sometimes I just need to pull Pride and Prejudice off my shelf and curl up with Mr. Darcy. It seems that I am not the only person with a fondness for Jane Austen and her fabulous stories. In the past few years there has been an influx of spin-offs, remakes, and sequels...

  • I *Heart* The Spellmans!

    Back in January, I wrote a little bit about Lisa Lutz 's Spellman series. Last night I finished the third installment, Revenge of the Spellmans . It is EXCELLENT! This has become my new favorite series, since I've begun to grow tired of Janet Evanovich 's Plum series. Private investigator...

  • Give It Up

    It is time for Janet Evanovich to stop writing Stephanie Plum novels. I mean it. I started reading the series seven years ago when Seven Up was the most recently released book in the series and it quickly became my favorite series. I still read the new ones as they come out; I can't stop. They really...

  • Lisa Lutz's Izzy Spellman Novels

    I read The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz during our 2008 summer reading program, how about you? It was good enough, I read Curse of the Spellmans right afterwards. What a quirky family! The books focus on a wild private investigator named Izzy Spellman, but her whole family (mother, father, older brother...

  • A Good Sequel!

    I am always skeptical of sequels. The more I love the first book, the more skeptical I am. This does not mean I don't look forward to sequels, just that I try not to get my hopes up too high. Knit Two by Kate Jacobs is a good book which is fantastic, because I loved The Friday Night Knitting Club...
