Star Wars

Posted by Shannon Haddock on December 18, 2015 in Reviews, Star Wars praise |

I don’t actually know how long I’ve been a Star Wars fan.  As I’ve mentioned before, one of the first toys I remember having — and I remember it as not being new in my first memories of it — was a Yoda action figure.  I first saw Return of the Jedi when I was about six, and by the time […]


What I’m currently reading . . . sort of

Posted by Shannon Haddock on September 30, 2015 in InCryptid praise, Reviews |

I was just reading a mostly abysmal list of blog topics for writers (seriously, would anyone be interested in knowing what I’d say to Mark Zuckerberg about Facebook if I was alone with him for 5 minutes?  Is this really a topic readers care about?!) and one actually jumped out at me:  What books are […]


Five Star Reviews — Freedom, Spiced and Drunk by M.C.A. Hogarth

Posted by Shannon Haddock on September 14, 2015 in Reviews |

I read this story because it was free and I’d read another by the author that I’d liked, if not as much as this one. The description, via Goodreads: Kediil wants only to remain neuter and learn the secrets of herbs from its beloved Mardin… but at its second puberty, it turns female, and is forced […]


Five Star Reviews — The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Posted by Shannon Haddock on August 22, 2015 in Kingkiller Chronicles praise, Reviews, Uncategorized |

I discovered this book in possibly the weirdest way I’ve yet discovered a book.  I’d been watching The Guild . . . which, by the way, is far more entertaining when you’re not losing whole days of productivity to an MMO yourself . . . and, well, there’s only six seasons of it.  The dog was asleep […]


Five Star Reviews — Project HALFSHEEP: Or How the Agency’s Alien Got High by Susan Hasler

Posted by Shannon Haddock on June 24, 2015 in Reviews |

This is a book I had to read as part of a review exchange.  It was on my “to read” list before that though because it sounded quirky and fun.  It was, but it was also a lot deeper than I’d expected. This also is not the work I expected to be doing a post about […]


Five Star Reviews — Flint by Louis L’Amour

Posted by Shannon Haddock on June 15, 2015 in Reviews |

I’d tried to read some Louis L’Amour novels ages ago, and they hadn’t kept my interest enough for me to finish them.  A few years ago I somehow ended up reading an excerpt from one of his Sackett novels and immediately fell in love with his way with words. The description, via Goodreads: He left the […]



Five Star Reviews — Love or Lust by Jaye Edgecliff

Posted by Shannon Haddock on May 4, 2015 in Reviews |

This book is not the sort I’d ordinarily be interested in at all.  In fact, I first read the rough draft only out of a sense of obligation . . . the author is my best friend, so I have to read her stuff, right? I loved it. It’s a teen romance that managed to draw […]


Five star reviews — Oath of the Brotherhood

Posted by Shannon Haddock on April 13, 2015 in Kingkiller Chronicles praise, Reviews |

I won this book in a Goodreads First Reads Giveaway.  I didn’t realize when I won it that it was Christian fantasy.  When I found out it was, I was pretty sure I wouldn’t like it . . . most Christian fiction I’ve read has been preachy enough that I would’ve found it annoying even if […]



Five star reviews — Breakup by Dana Stabenow

Posted by Shannon Haddock on March 23, 2015 in Reviews |

This is a book I read because I’d read it ages ago and loved it.  I like the whole Kate Shugak series, what I’ve read of it anyway — I’m about ten books behind I think — but this is my favorite. The description, via Goodreads: In Breakup, Kate Shugak’s loyalties – to the land, […]

Five star reviews — Triplanetary by E. E. “Doc” Smith

Posted by Shannon Haddock on March 14, 2015 in Reviews |

This is a book I read because it was a Book of the Month choice in a group on Goodreads that I was briefly part of.  And because I’d read part of it years ago and thought that it being chosen as Book of the Month was a good excuse to finally finish it.  I […]
