Through the Woods

I woke up this morning to a rather cold, rainy day, and my first thought was that it was a perfect day to focus on spooky reads. With that thought in mind, I decided to spend the morning re-reading Emily Carroll's Through the Woods. I actually mentioned this book in a recent post as a…

The Holmes-Dracula File

There's something very exciting about seeing an author tackle not just one, but two well-known intellectual properties...especially when the resulting novel is as fantastic as Fred Saberhagen's The Holmes-Dracula File.

Defy or Defend

The Reverse Readathon took place more than a week ago, but I'm still thinking about all of the amazing books that I had the opportunity to read. One of my favorites was the fourth book I read during the challenge, Defy or Defend, by Gail Carriger. Defy or Defend tells the story of "fixer" Dimity…

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in the Dewey's 24 Hour Reverse Readathon. I had a tremendous amount of fun spending the day reading, and had a chance to read several fantastic books that have been sitting on my TBR shelves for quite some time. The first book I read during the…
