I am E_bookpushers and I am addicted to books. I have to thank my mother for my addiction because one of my fondest memories involves bedtime stories. No, I am not talking about Dr. Seuss, Bernstein Bears or Madeline, those were daytime learn to read books, but I am talking about Tolkien, Richard Adams and Asimov… 


Thanks to my mother’s open mindedness I did not grow up a genre snob. While I tend to read and enjoy SF/F in its various permutations, romance and its sub-genres I also read and enjoy westerns, murder mysteries etc. If a book can capture my attention, spark my imagination; carry me into a different world/reality than I am willing to give it a try. So bring on your recommendations so I can update my TBR list.


Happy reading!

Beautiful Sacrifice - Elizabeth Lowell I have mixed feelings about this one. I liked the set up and the characters until the hero/heroine went back to stay with her family. Then it derailed on me. The heroine lost her competence and started veering into the TSTL area. The hero pretty much did the same.

I also figured out the bad guys way too early so then it was just a matter of wishing they would hurry up and take action so there would be more development.

Basically I liked probably about the first 1/2 or so and then ended up rather disappointed. Plus things cleaned up a bit too neatly in the very end.
