Thrifty Thursday: Animals

It’s been a month since I’ve shined a spotlight on the glorious weirdness found in thrift stores and in that month, I’ve been gathering new photos. Creepy animals, dead-eyed dolls, and clowns. So many clowns. All odd in the way only thrift store finds can be odd. Today’s spotlight, both in weird ephemera and in book recommendation, focuses on an assortment of animals.

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

Rec a Series is a monthly post highlighting one of my favorite series, past or present. 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”
