Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.
Themis-Athena's description got me interested in The Leopard, a novel by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa that was on the best seller list in 1960 the week To Kill a Mockingbird was released, and I found it at my library book store for 25 cents!
Also, even though I don't read a lot in the genre, I couldn't resist 3 sci-fi fantasy novels by Sarah Zettel with (I think) great covers--I especially love the woman talking earnestly to the tall, blue and handsome alien--so I'll be giving Playing God, Kingdom of Cages, and A Sorcerer's Treason a try too.
