What Bullying Really Looks Like

Reblogged from J. Dallas:

I hate telling this story. Just the thought of doing so, of exposing my past to even a handful of other people, makes me feel sick to my stomach. But with Goodreads' change in policy occurring and the word "bullying" being slung around so casually, I think it's time.

Happy Hobbit Week!


Some believe it is only Great Power that can hold evil in check. But that is not what I have found. It have found that it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love.

I have noticed....

since I've been importing my books/reviews from the other site, that "Fantastic!" is a word I need to work out of my vocabulary. 

Hounded - Kevin Hearne

I read this in one day. I've hooked my sister and her boyfriend on them. So good.

Carved in Bone - Jefferson Bass I enjoyed this book. I liked the characters and the setting-I'm a fan of the t.v. show "Bones" and I like other forensic anthropologist type fiction.

I did find it was difficult to read sometimes because of the first person narrative it was written in. It didn't make it easy to pick the book back up after setting it down for a bit. Also, the bits about the main characters marriage didn't ring quite true/felt forced.

Would recommend.
Garlic and Sapphires: The Secret Life of a Critic in Disguise - Ruth Reichl I really enjoy a good book about cooking/chefs/restaurants. This did not disappoint. I liked the descriptions of the many personas that the author took on in the process of doing her job and what they taught her about herself. Also, her experiences with food that she described made me envious of some of the restaurants she reviewed.

4 stars = likely to read again.
Let's Pretend This Never Happened: A Mostly True Memoir - Jenny Lawson I loved this book. I laughed a lot but there were also serious moments that I related with. I've got this on my list to buy for my sisters. And possibly Mom too.
The Name of the Wind - Patrick Rothfuss Listened to the audiobook. Absolutely fabulous. I enjoyed the narrator and the book is excellent.
Naamah's Curse ( Moirin Trilogy, #2) - Jacqueline Carey And finished the second. I haven't read the third so this rereadathon is on to refresh details in my mind. Enjoying this series quite a bit.
Naamah's Kiss - Jacqueline Carey Just finished rereading the first in the series. Good stuff.
Code Name Verity - Elizabeth Wein This was an absolutely heart-breaking, fabulous, amazing read about two young women during World War II. Intrigue, planes, conspiracy. Excellent historical fiction! I've put this on my books-I-loved list and I plan on recommending it to family and friends.

(Received Netgalley, but is on the list for the next bookstore visit.)
