Recommended Reading List: January, 2022

Even though school started and I am now doing a lot of legal reading, I am managing to find time to get some leisure reading done. That might be due to the brain space that’s freeing up as my pandemic terror levels are decreasing. It might also be the emotional exhaustion from the past two years; my brain needs something to help it relax. The […]

Recommended Reading List: October 2021

Totally insane month with a lot of legal reading—maybe 500 pages—which I find fascinating, but you won’t. I added Grisham’s latest to that, but it’s emotionally cold and didn’t have much of an impact on me. Okay, yes, all of Grisham is emotionally cold, but usually that suits the story. It didn’t here. I enjoyed the read, but not enough to recommend. Mostly, I’ve been […]

Special Holiday Recommended Reading List 2015

I generally post my recommended reading list a month or three after I’ve done the reading. Which means that all of the holiday stories that I read get recommended in January or February. In 2011, I decided to do a compilation of past holiday recommends so that you can get them for the appropriate season.

Recommended Reading List: May, 2013

Read a fun middle-grade novel this month, and realized that while I had loved, loved, loved the first book in the series, the second disappointed—not because it was worse than the first. It might have been better. It disappointed because half the fun of the first (from an adult perspective) was the riff the novel was doing on a series of classic novels, and now […]

Recommended Reading List: December, 2012

December’s been another good reading month. I’ve managed to read a lot despite being very busy. Some of what I read was for research, and I have to say that when you have the word “avengers” in your title, you’re duty-bound to write a really good book. I think that book, which is not named below, wins the dullest book I read in 2012 award. […]
