Thrifty Thursday: Angels and Demons

Once more, I’ve braved the local thrift stores to bring you the interesting and bizarre. I’ve found creepy clowns, more porcelain dolls than a single haunted house could ever contain, and… angels. So. Many. Angels. Christmassy angels, cherubic angels, and (quite frankly) terrifying angels. Naturally, I snapped photos of the best (worst?) of the bunch to present to you! I’ll pair them up with a pair of thrifty books containing angels and their natural enemies, demons. Check it out. Continue reading “Thrifty Thursday: Angels and Demons”

Rec a Series: Alpha and Omega

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. This month, I’m shining the spotlight on a series that branched off an insanely popular Urban Fantasy series. Take one insanely dominant werewolf enforcer second only to the Marrok, add in a brutalized female werewolf who falls outside of pack hierarchy, and you’ve got a match guaranteed to provide a few ulcers to even the most powerful wolf. If you love Mercy Thompson, you really need to check out Alpha and Omega. Continue reading “Rec a Series: Alpha and Omega”

Rec a Series: The Others

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. I’m so far behind on posting stuff that I don’t need the History Channel. Unlike the History Channel, however, I won’t blame it on aliens. I blame it on finally, finally finishing Petri and getting it ready for publication. More on that later! For now, let’s talk about a new-to-me series and author I stumbled across because the author was giving a reading with Patricia Briggs. Continue reading “Rec a Series: The Others”

Rec a Series: The Elemental World

I’m a week behind from when I normally post one of these and had to scramble to find a series I could gush over without reservation. I had a few choices, but decided to go with one of my favorite authors: Elizabeth Hunter. Continue reading “Rec a Series: The Elemental World”

Rec a Series: Kate Daniels

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. I had a moment of stunned disbelief when I realized I hadn’t covered this series. It’s amazingly glorious. It’s one of the first Urban Fantasy series folks think of when one mentions UF. And I hadn’t mentioned it yet. This…is not good. Let me remedy that now and dive into the alternate reality of Atlanta after the return of magic. I present to you… Continue reading “Rec a Series: Kate Daniels”

Rec a Series: Psy/Changeling Series

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. With the holidays approaching, I’ve decided to go with a “sweeter” series by Nalini Singh. Lusty leopards, hierarchical wolves, feisty humans, and oh those stoic Psy! Let’s dive into the alternate world of the Psy/Changeling Series. Continue reading “Rec a Series: Psy/Changeling Series”

Monday Mumbles – End of Year Recap

As I write this, I’ve fallen behind on my reading goal of 150 books this year. I moved the goalposts up from 100 to 150 sometime around September or October as I was within a handful of titles from reaching it. Now, I’m 3 books behind. I suppose I was slightly over-optimistic. There’s still a month yet, so I’m sure I can catch up as long as I stop re-reading my favorites. Below are those that wowed me. Continue reading “Monday Mumbles – End of Year Recap”
