About meI read incessantly and way too fast. I constantly amaze my BF with how quickly I finish books- "You finished that? You just started it today! Do you really read these books or do you skip parts...." Alternate tones of suspicion & amazement and repeat conversation at least weekly with acceptable alternate conversation of " Where did that book come from? Where do you get all these books? Where are you going to put it? We don't have room for all these books..." Prevalent tone is lightly amused frustration although first line is all suspicion all the time .. But honey books grow on trees... well they kinda do!

About my libraryEclectic and totally not up to date I read so very much that it would be a massive timesuck to try to get this 100% accurate as to everything I read, have read & want to read. Also I must say the older I get the less time I have for the truly intelligent reading; reading philosophy, religious theory, scientific or just high falootin' literary fiction. *Sigh* I still try on occasion though.

My ratings in a nutshell-
Most books will be around 3 or 3.5 stars, this means that the book was an average enjoyable read- the further away the better or worse the book was IMO
I do not often rank to the extremes-1 star or 5 stars so if I have a book ranked to the extreme I loved it or hated it
I also rank the book purely on it's own merits & in within the scope of what the book is genre/audience/ambition wise; i.e. a 5 for a manga is based on it being a manga not a novel

I read fiction, horror, YA, manga, graphic novels, chick lit, urban fantasy and more....

Thanks for my SantaThing books. I am so excited to start reading :)
Thanks so much for the SantaThing picks! I haven't had enough time to start any of them yet, but my best friend already borrowed Name of the Wind, so they are getting good use!
Thank you Jacey25 for the awesome graphic novel of one of my favorite science fiction books. I was so surprised when I opened it this morning.
I hope your Secret Santa was just as thoughtful as you were with my gift.
Happy Holidays,
Thanks a million!
I just so happened to be at my local library last night for the monthly mystery readers group. Everyone there also belongs to the fiction reading group and it was this group that read We Need to Talk About Kevin. I shared your comments with them and read the review I wrote. I didn't feel I was including anything that would spoil it for a reader but wanted to get their feedback. They agreed that mentioning a second child was important in showing the evil in Kevin's reaction. And they all, as they read the book, anticipated that he would spend time in jail so that revelation didn't spoil it for them. I was careful NOT to put in my review the true spoiler -- that Kevin had killed both his father and sister.
I'm so glad you liked your books! It was interesting to choose books because you wanted things that were outside of the realm of things that I usually read, so I got to look at a lot of interesting things. I hope you really enjoy them all!
Thank you for the Library Thing suggestions. I took your advice and selected Stray as one of the Santa thing books. Hopefully MercuryAngel3 will enjoy it. I might just pick up a copy for myself as well. I appreciate your help. Happy Holidays
Noticed you liked Fight Club, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Thought you might like my book since it's also about a disturbed bunch of kids and a bit dark :) I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:


Is that Paris on your pic? seems familiar
Thanks for letting me know. I hope you like it.
I had my husband read "The Bomb That Followed me Home" this morning. He wasn't as offended by it as I was but agreed it wasn't really for kids. Thanks for your response!
I also read "The Bomb That Followed Me Home." I thought it was kind of offensive, and definitely not for kids (because, as you pointed out, the language is a little too sophisticated). I get the feeling this is about a real vendetta Soling would like to do to somebody. Did you feel that way?
No worries! I'm glad you liked it. :-) Happy Reading!
The Fireman's Wife is in the mail. Could you let me know when it arrives? Thanks.
Hi Jen, I received your SantaThing books today. (It always takes a little longer to get to an FPO address.) Thanks very much! I appreciate your going through my library to try & figure out what I'd like. I look forward to reading the books. Happy New Year! Judy
I picked up my Santathing package today (it may have been there a few days, we have been snowed in), the books look great, thanks!
Thanks for adding me as an interesting library! As for the picture I'm using for my profile, I have no idea where I found it. Having been an Alice for such a long time, I've gotten really tired of the cute, young, blond girl image and loved it when American McGee came out with a very dark Alice in Wonderland video game. That one definitely feels more "me" than the original! :-)
I'm glad you liked your SantaThing books :) The suggestions from other people were a big help--I was drowning in ideas of novels and manga. I was tempted to make one of the books one of the "For Beginners" comics in philosophy or something similar but even in comic form that stuff can be too heavy.

Hope you had a great holiday (or continue to have a great holiday, or just enjoyed some time off) and have an awesome new year!

I thanks ye for signin' up and markin' your spot to be on me Pirate crew. Since we have a vast, big ship, we ain't got 'nough crew to man her across the seven seas and me thinks that the seas be rough this time o' year. We needs many more hands to sail and not much time 'fore we launch.

Sorry Jacey, both Summer Blowout and Gifted Gabaldon Sisters were taken.

I just read your review of Any Given Doomsday and I almost passed out from laughing so hard. What a great review!!! I am happy that I did not request it from early reviewers and after reading your review, I certainly will not buy it. But I loved your review and you just made my day with that hilarious write up.....I am still laughing over your hope that her evil mother goddess kills Jimmy in the sequel. LOL.
