The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan First of all, let me get this out of my system: dead people aren’t tossing anything. They are being tossed. In my head, this book is more accurately titled The Wave-Tossed Dead. Secondly, this was an audiobook listen and while Tara Sands did a good job and her voice […]

Audiobook Review: Turn Coat by Jim Butcher

Turn Coat by Jim Butcher I seem to have developed a habit of reading the first book in a series then skipping a whole bunch to read from the series again. It worked well for me with Star Wars: A New Jedi Order and I can’t complain about my recent run with The Dresden Files. […]
