Teaser Tuesday 4/10/2018: “The Darkest Part of the Forest”

This week, having finished with Alice, I have moved on to another quasi-fairy (or is that faerie?) tale, The Darkest Part of the Forest, by Holly Black, of Coldest Girl in Coldtown fame.

Teaser Tuesday 3/27/2018: “The Father Hunt”

So this week I’m still reading Brave New Worlds, but I’m also re-reading The Father Hunt, by Rex Stout. And since most of the stories in Brave New Worlds have been firmly on the “meh” side (it was heavily front-loaded with the better ones), I decided I would do something highly unusual and feature a print book Teaser Tuesday this week.

TBR

Usually that means “To Be Read”, as in, “I’ve got two hundred books in my TBR pile!”  But in this case it means “To Be Reviewed”, as I’ve been notified that my Pitch Perfect winner Shards has been selected for a review by Steve Wetherell at Underground Book Reviews!

Teaser Tuesday: “Spirelli Paranormal Investigations: Episodes 1-3”

So this week I’m reading a short omnibus, Spirelli Paranormal Investigations: Episodes 1-3, by Kate Baray, which — as you may surmise — collects three short novels about the adventures of Jack Spirelli, who, uh, investigates the paranormal.  And he has a sidekick who is a dragon that can take the form of a human woman.  Sounds like one of my characters, no?  So of course I had to read it.

Teaser Tuesday 9/8/15: (Still) “The Dragonriders of Pern”

So this week I’m (shocker!) still reading the 800-odd-page long Dragonriders of Pern trilogy — I think I’m somewhere near the beginning of the second book, which begins about seven years after the end of the first one. Thread is still falling, dragons are still (mostly) burning it, and somebody has nice hair.
