 A blend of screwball comedy, deep philosophy and examination of the function of organized religion. Only Tom Robbins could pull this one off so beautifully.
 Take a raft of characters ala Maeve Binchy, throw in a couple of murders and stir in a plodding, morose beginning. Stick with it, though, because this book does get better. Still, don’t expect happy Binchy endings.
 Not bad fantasy fiction. The pair are a quick read.
 Tense, fast-paced and thoroughly satisfying.
 Geary’s Witches series is like potato chips – totally addicting.
 Speaking of addicting, I adored this series – Victorian costume drama, vampires, werewolves and ghosts with a dollop of steampunk and a healthy dash of humor.
 Yeah, it’s fantasy fiction month. Another pretty decent read.
 Entirely too hipster in content and style for me. Ugh.
