I read widely and in most genres but romance and westerns. Here you'll find my reviews since 2007, with a few reviews of previously read books as well.


In 2012, I completed an "authors of the world" challenge, reading a book for every country (and a few other entities) by someone who'd lived there for at least two years. I expect to tag these books by challenge and country in the near future. I'm still refining my list by adding books that better meet my challenge criteria.

The Risen Empire  - Scott Westerfeld This would get 4 stars for cleverness, technology fun, and broad sweep, but it's not at all freestanding and ends on a cliffhanger. It's really "part 1" rather than "first in a series" and can't stand alone. The technology is really fun, though, and the world building extensive and enjoyable.
