Bookin' It

So Many Books. So Little Time. Let's Review!

Just Thinkin’….


I realized after reading a comment the other day that I haven’t reviewed a non-urban fantasy book in quite some time. Now this doesn’t bother me overly much, as I’m very fond of good urban fantasy and have been in that frame of mind for a couple of years. However, I certainly don’t want to put forth the idea that urban fantasy is ALL I read, or all I ever HAVE read. No, no, no. Sometimes I read horror and science fiction, too!  Hahaha. I jest! I hardly ever read sci-fi. But I do read actual literature and regular ol’ fiction and love stories and historical fiction. I just have been in a different mood lately.  But that could change any day now. I have several fiction books in my To Be Read basket, and hundreds that I’ve read in the past and could probably still review decently. And beyond that, I actually have already reviewed a few books here on Bookin’ It that do not fall into the urban fantasy category at all.

With that thought in mind, and for those of you who might be interested, but haven’t thought about checking out the various other categories listed in the sidebar, here are links to ten of my reviews of things less vampity, wolfy, slimy, scary and otherwise bump-in-the-night-y.  Maybe there is something here you might enjoy reading. (If not, hang in there. I’m going to review Midnight Blue-Light Special in a day or so, and that’s about as hardcore Urban Fantasy as you can get.)

1.  Rebecca – a classic that is probably my favorite noir/love story/mystery of all time. Very romantic and totally outdated, but still glorious.

2.  Falling Together  – one of the most romantic love stories, ever! Hope my review makes every reader head straight over to buy a copy.

3.  Sarum  – a totally fascinating work of historical fiction. It’s a must read for anyone interested in Great Britian, from the stone age forward.

4.  Cold Mountain  – maybe my favorite work of modern fiction, ever. So beautifully written and filled with images that take your breath away.

5.  From Sea to Shining Sea  – another historical fiction, following the adventures of Lewis & Clark, and made exciting by great story telling.

6.  Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe – a modern classic of the south.

7.  Love Walked In – not enough words to tell you how good this one is.

8.  V Is For Vengeance – if you love Sue Grafton’s Alphabet Mysteries, this is the best of them all.

9.  The Affair – Jack Reacher. Need I say more?

10. Flash and Bones – a  Kathy Reichs/Temperance Brennan mystery.
