I love to read and you must also, since you’re here! My 'currently-reading' list always includes a book I am reading as well as one I'm listening to. This blog, a labor of love and a constant work-in-progress, is a way for me to share my thoughts about what I've read; I'm not a pro but I am passionate! I have purposely not summarized plot lines because the people that do that professionally are so darn good at it. I hope you enjoy the opinions and musings you find here. Thank you for visiting!

Shakespeare's Landlord (A Lily Bard Mystery #1) by Charlaine Harris
Ever on the hunt for a series that will fill the requirement for light and brainless reading I gave another Charlaine Harris creation a try. Sookie Stackhouse remains Harris' greatest written accomplishment but this wasn't a bad story. It isn't a good replacement for Sookie or Lisa Lutz's Spellman series but those are admittedly, big sitcom-type literary shoes to fill. There is no humor in main character Lily Bard but she does inspire the desire to take a karate class or eat more stir fry. Very few of my life experiences instigated an inspired look at stir fry so that in itself is a notable accomplishment.... While I'm still on the hunt for the goofball series that will take me away from anything resembling intellectual stimulation or intelligent thought provocation, I may take a look at one more Lily Bard mystery before I decide if I'm committed to the karate chopping resident of Shakespeare or if we're both better off going our separate ways...
