About April

I'm a librarian, reader, and writer whose main goal in life is to be able to swim in books the way Scrooge McDuck swims in money. Although my reading choices will always be wildly eclectic and I never plan on leaving any genre unexplored, my favorite reads tend to be Fantasy, Young Adult, Science Fiction, Gay Romance, or Historical Fiction.

    Isn’t Joe Abercrombie just totally addictive? You’re gonna LOVE Last Argument of Kings. the end of that book is just brutal. Speaking of brutal, Yay for Prince of Thorns too! I just can’t get enough of this dark brutal creepy stuff. is that telling? 😉

    I’ve been meaning to read Rachel Aaron, those books look like a lot of fun.

  2. A couple of these I do want to get. Sounds like an amazing list here. 🙂 I did enjoy Joe Abercrombies books too. But I need to get to the third one, review books have torn me away from the series I love and want to finish. That’s one I think I’ll need to get to here in 2012. 🙂
