Bio Of A Space Tyrant Volume 1: Refugee

Anthony, Piers
Space Opera with a little bit of everything: murder, incest, rape, wanton killing, child molestation... did I mention rape? Murder? I am SO looking forward to volume two!! Actually, it's a pretty good book, with a very uplifing love story that caused me to shed a little tear. But it IS pretty violent!

Ninja Soccer Moms

Apodaca, Jennifer
A mom (with a boob job, mentioned many times)in Lake Elsinore runs a dating service, with some detecting on the side. I kept comparing it to the Evanovich's books.

Words I Had To Look Up::

"Chunks." (pg. 186) -- I didn't know highlights in hair were called chunks. See, you CAN learn stuff, even from a book as lightweight as this!

To cut a long story short

Archer, Jeffrey
Fourteen pretty darn good little stories. Some have an art background, and some are based on true events.

Quote:

'Henry Moore,' the curator continued, in a voice that made it clear he believed he was addressing an ignorant bunch of tourists who might muddle up Cubism with sugar lumps [...].

Twelve Red Herrings

Hunter's Horn

Arnow, Harriette Simpson
Picked this orphan book off the middle school library shelf. A really rich, detailed story of poor Kentucky hill farmers. One man's obsession with foxhunting, to the detriment of his family, is central to the story. I would like to have learned how his daughter's pregnancy turned out.

Big Sky

Atkinson, Kate
A Jackson Brodie book. Engaging story, full of the usual twists and turns. Honestly, I get to the end and I STILL don't know what is what. Silver BMW, some girl named Darcy, and the title - what does the title mean?
