This was another Christmas present book like Still Alice. And the premise sounded great…small town girl seeking adventure goes to Thailand to teach underprivileged children, but while sailing with friends, an “unimaginable” disaster strikes.

So, this is the series that wrecked my Goodreads goal for the year (by like 20 books, but whatever). AND, it was so not worth it. I mean, don’t get me wrong, overall, I think I liked the series as … Continue reading

Oh man. There’s so much here that I COULD complain about. I could complain that this book didn’t really advance any storylines at all. Nothing life-altering happens, no big mysteries are solved, they basically spent the whole book thinking that … Continue reading

The Lord John series – Diana Gabaldon

These all seem to be mysteries, which is not generally a genre I’m drawn to. I don’t entirely understand why there are so many books about Lord John, who I always considered to be a rather boring character, but Gabaldon … Continue reading

So at the end of the last book, Dragonfly in Amber, Claire realizes that Jamie didn’t die after Colloden and so he could still be alive in the past, 20 years later. Well, I don’t really think I’m giving too … Continue reading

Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander #2) – Diana Gabaldon

So this is an enormous series of books, and it’s got all kinds of novellas and short stories, so the author actually has a chronology on her website, which is really helpful. And for Dragonfly in Amber, she writes: “It … Continue reading
