The Honor Harrington book series by David Weber is a Science Fiction series set in the future.

Having made him look a fool, she's been exiled to Basilisk Station in disgrace and set up for ruin by a superior who hates her. Her demoralized crew blames her for their ship's humiliating posting to an out-of-the-way picket station. The aborigines of the system's only habitable planet are smoking homicide-inducing hallucinogens. Parliament isn't sure it wants to keep the place; the major local industry is smuggling; the merchant cartels want her head; the star-conquering, so-called "Republic" of Haven is Up To Something; and Honor Harrington has a single, over-age light cruiser with an armament that doesn't work to police the entire star system. But the people out to get her have made one mistake. They've made her mad.  ---Synopsis from 'On Basilisk Station'

Shimmer by John Passarella

SHIMMER tells the story of a family with various paranormal abilities who has, through generations spanning thousands of years, protected the human race from supernatural predators. These creatures enter our world through dimensional rifts and must be defeated or returned to their world before wreaking havoc in our own. But the family has suffered a long war of attrition and their numbers have dwindled. They are at their weakest when our world faces its greatest threat. And time is running out.


Also by John Passarella

The Wither Trilogy

Wither - Wither's Rain - Wither's Legacy

Late in the Seventeenth Century, a coven of witches terrorized the small New England town of Windale. Three hundred years later the evil force has reawakened to begin a new cycle. Now Wendy Ward, a college freshman and practicing white witch, Karen Glazer, a pregnant professor and Abby MacNeil, an abused eight-year-old girl must find a way to survive the reborn coven and the monstrous horror that is Wither.

A lot of people are posting their books for 2009 lists, which reminds me I haven't even posted my books read in 2008. It's a pitifully short list compared to previous years.

Reading is a discount ticket to everywhere --Mary Schmich )

I have been completely sucked in by DragCave and am obsessed with my dragons. :)

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!


I'm also trying to get ready for Christmas. *sigh* I'm excited, but...not, at the same time. This time of year is always impossibly stressful and it just get worse every year. But I have fun decorating and baking and wrapping presents.

Since I mentioned Twilight in the Fannish Friday 5 the other day, I thought I'd go ahead and say a little bit more about it. The books were good (for what they are). IMO, they aren't OMG!!!111!!!! THE BEST THING EVER WRITTEN!!!!!! But they were good. Keep in mind they are tween/teen books and as such, very light reads (It took me 6 days to read all 4 books). The movie however, was awful. The casting was bad, the script was bad...it was just bad. Really bad.


We've been looking for a new recipe to use sweet italian sausage in. We finally found one and tried it tonight. It was actually quite good.

When asked about the new Amazon Kindle product, Steve Jobs CEO of Apple computer had this to say:

“It doesn’t matter how good or bad the product is, the fact is that people don’t read anymore,” he said. “Forty percent of the people in the U.S. read one book or less last year. The whole conception is flawed at the top because people don’t read anymore.”

More about books... )

The DragCave is down for maintenance, so I can't play with my dragons right now. :(    Although it is possible that TJ is adding the new features, which would be awesome!

In other news,

I have finished watching season 6 of Stargate-SG1. We're probably going to wait awhile before we start season 7 (at least until we can collect a few seasons of Atlantis as well).

I haven't been watching Doctor Who lately, but I may pick that up again soon. We're up to the Fourth Doctor right now and I really want to get through them so we can move on to the Fifth Doctor. :)

Well this was a pretty dismal year. I only read 49 books, last year I read 126. I don't know why but I just haven't felt like reading much.

[Error: unknown template qotd]Sometimes I choose a book because I like the author. Other times I'll read the title and/or the synopsis to see if it sounds interesting. Because I read so many different genres I choose quite a few books from recommendations. I have pages of books on my TBR list, but I usually end up reading new books or other recommendations instead of trying to make a dent in my reading list. *sigh* So many books, so little time.
