I Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to Spend More Time in These Books

I Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to Spend More Time in These Books

As a reader, it’s easy to be left wanting MORE.  There are some worlds that are so broad and exciting, it’s easy to dive in and lose ourselves in companion novels and sequels and prequels.  I’m thinking of Tamora Pierce’s Tortall universe, or of Tolkien’s Middle Earth in particular, but you can even go beyond books and talk about Star Wars or Marvel.  These worlds are vast and delicious and have enough content that if you need more of their creator’s imagination, it’s easy to find. Then, there are standalones. I actually have no problem with standalone novels, but every […]

Meet a Few KICK ASS Ladies in Fantasy

Meet a Few KICK ASS Ladies in Fantasy

Many moons ago, I wrote a post about my Top Three Strong Female Characters.  This list featured Holly Short, Hermione Granger, and Max.  While all three of them are excellent characters, I’ve been really wanting to create an updated list, because a strong, sassy female character is my weakness.  Do you have a heroine that kicks ass?  I need to know all about her.  Like, now. I have a great big list of Strong Female Characters on Goodreads, and I also have a tag on the blog for it.  Needless to repeat, these girls are the peanut butter to my jelly […]
