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.

Goliath - Scott Westerfeld, Keith Thompson A reasonably satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. While some plot points are attended to, there's a level of detail that isn't entirely resolved. For example, that the perspicacious lorises make connections and inferences before the humans do is an idea just left dangling. Still, a pleasing series with strong male and female teen protagonists. As in the previous two volumes, lovely illustrations.
