Heat Wave Review
Published on Monday, April 12, 2010 by My husband and I have been watching Castle on ABC. It’s a cop drama/comedy starring Nathan Fillion. (I love him, by the way.) The premise is that Richard Castle, a mystery author, is following around a police detective by the name of Kate Beckett. The interplay between Castle and Beckett is wonderful.

This novel is set during the Civil War in California, in this timeline the Civil War has g...
Firestarter by Stephen King – Review
Published on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 by By Harpy Convair I read Firestarter by Stephen King for the first time many years ago. My husband, a great lover of horror novels, wanted me to love them as well, but I was a scaredy-cat. So, his solution was to start me out with this early work of King's. He picked Firestarter because it isn't a horror novel, but more of the thriller/suspense/intrigue ilk. We...
Color of Magic by Terry Pratchett – Review
Published on Wednesday, January 13, 2010 by By Harpy Convair I read another Terry Pratchett novel years ago, so long ago I can't remember the title. I have seen a couple of the movies based on his works, "Hogsfather" and "The Color of Magic", they were both hilarious. This book is the first installment of the Discworld series. It started a bit slow for me, but first novels can drag a bit since they are...
Monster Planet by David Wellington – Review
Published on Tuesday, January 12, 2010 by By Harpy Convair I used to hate critics, books and movies alike. I still dislike them, most of them are cynical and seem to desire to destroy authors' careers. However, now that I have written a few reviews I have more respect for their craft. It is incredibly hard to write a coherent review waithout including spoilers, especially when dealing with a series. ...
