Reflected in You

It’s a messy love story and I’m happy to watching from the sidelines.


Phantom Shadows

With each new installment in the Immortal Guardians series I only fall more in love with the world and the amazing cast of characters.


Into the Woods

I may be biased, but I think Into the Woods is an absolute must buy for fans of The Hollows, as it gives deeper looks that we don't get to see in the main series.


The Woman Who Died A Lot: A Thursday Next Novel

Funny, full of ideas, wonderful characters, great dialogue and, come on, we have our Thursday back.


The Liar, The Bitch and the Wardrobe

"The Liar, the Bitch and the Wardrobe" is a light and entertaining read and it kept me on my toes the entire time.


Fury's Kiss

Seriously, run, do not walk to your nearest book store and snatch this puppy up as it is an absolute must buy!


All Spell Breaks Loose

This book brings the series to a strong conclusion, and any lingering questions or threads from the rest of the series are handled well and it's safe to say that readers will be pleased with the end of this story, even if they will miss the adventures of Raine and her friends.


Boyfriend from Hell

Even though Boyfriend From Hell had some problematic issues for me, it was still a pretty enjoyable read once you suspended a little disbelief and be willing to just go with the flow.


In the Pink

Aside from the conversational tone of this memoir and Susan's amazing story, what I love about this book is that it not only shares how she survived cancer, but also shows readers that 40 isn't the end like many want us to believe it is and that it really can be just the beginning of many great things.


The Endgame: The Inside Story of the Struggle for Iraq, from George W. Bush to Barack Obama

“The Endgame” shows just how hard that process can be — and, by implication, how crazy it is to start a war without good plans for how to finish it.


In Sunlight and In Shadow

"In Sunlight and in Shadow" is a sublime anachronism, not only in its classical structure but in its belief that literature should serve higher truths.


The Runaway Princess

An in-depth fairy tale by a master of the genre, delivering old-fashioned satisfaction with some up-to-date sparkle.


Mick Jagger
Kirkus Reviews : Mick Jagger (October 01, 2012)

Not the definitive Jagger life, but an enjoyable, entertaining biography.


Luck or Something Like It

“The audience expects to be entertained 100 percent for their ticket dollar,” Rogers writes. This doesn’t really hit that 100 percent mark, but it’s a light and pleasant read all the same.


Dick Francis's Bloodline

The usual pleasures of Francis father and son, from inside dope about announcing races to carefully controlled bursts of physical violence, fly by with all the speed of a promising filly on her second one-mile run.


The Casual Vacancy

The Casual Vacancy is admirably ambitious and manages to say a great deal within its extremely narrow focus, showing the sort of deep scars that can result from even the pettiest circumstances.


Ghosts of Manhattan: A Novel

As Nick’s life, his marriage, and the U.S. economy edge closer to meltdown, Brunt brings all the pieces together for a satisfying climax to this compulsively readable novel.


Ghosts of Manhattan: A Novel

A smart shot at the absurdity of Wall Street and the long fall that brought us all down.


Phantom: A Harry Hole Novel

For all that Phantom is a compulsive page-turner, it's also at times woefully overwritten (as well as just plain badly written), making one wish for an editor with a strong enough will to have taken it in hand and shaved around 100 pages from its 450-page girth.
