What I'm Reading Now

Currently reading The Witch and the Gentleman by JR Rain. I'll withhold judgment, but...  (And lord, I'm behind! I couldn't read for a while with all the drugs. I'm back now!)


1. Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett — so far, loving it. So damn funny.

2. The Best Horror of the Year Volume Six, edited by Ellen Datlow — there wasn’t a single story where anything happened. So frustrating.

3. Indian Cooking Unfolded by Raghavan Iyer — great narrative, interesting recipes, but not for a foodie, for someone who wants the very basics. 

4. A Morbid Taste for Bones by Ellis Peters — lovely little mystery

5. A Homemade Life by Molly Wizenberg — absolutely charming and made me cry

6.  Joyland, a Hard Case Crime by Stephen King. Loved it.

7. Shadow Man by Cody Macfayden — I have to admit by the end I was furious and screaming. This could have been exceptional. It was not.

8. The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook by Martha Davis — nothing I didn’t know, but I needed the reminder.

9. Writing the Cozy Mystery by Nancy Cohen — very interesting. This one’s a keeper.

10. Writing Mystery and Crime by Marg McAllister — for a beginning writer more than an experienced one, I think.

11. The Year of Pleasures by Elizabeth Berg — beautifully written, a lovely, warm read that’s like a hug. Gave me a lot to talk about with J.

12. Fermented Vegetables by Kirsten Shockey — cookbook, not the best read, but decent recipes

13. Borderline by TA Chase — loved it. Think the wife will love it, too. 

14. In Cuba I Was a German Shepherd by Ana Menendez — a fabulous collection of short stories set in Cuba. 

15. Poe by J. Lincoln Fenn — clever as hell, not scary, but viciously clever.

16. The Magpie Lord by KJ Charles — quite adored this one. Clever and utterly charming.

17. Wolf’s Desire by Ambrielle Kirk — Uh. Not my thing. At all. Whoa.

18. Controlling Parker by Sean Michael — KINKY

19. Dark Carnival: An Anthology of Horror, Edited by Jolene Haley, Kristen Jett and Jessi Shakarian — nothing happened. Ever.

20. Blue Collar by Sean Michael — adorable, sexy and sweet

21. Guarding January by Sean Michael — I love the depth of characters in this one

22. The Biker's Pup by Sean Michael -- you know whose story I want next, right?

23. Voices from the Moon by Andre Dubus -- I just want to write 1/200000th as well

24. Fearie Tales edited by Stephen Jones -- incredibly satisfying collection

25. Spirit Rider by Cotton Smith -- I got bored. :P
