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.

State of Wonder - Ann Patchett A somewhat silly premise and conclusion, though that's okay for this light fare. I don't buy for a minute that she'd leave Easter. Another 20 pages of agonized decision-making could have rescued this. and served the novel's need for Marina to have learned something about herself, her own choices, and moral relativism in order to moderate her contempt for Mr. Fox.
