Urban Shaman by C.E. Murphy


I'm being lazy today and trying out the html from Goodreads.


Urban Shaman  (Walker Papers, #1)Urban Shaman by C.E. Murphy
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A very generic urban fantasy book with one character that made it all worth it.

Jo is an acceptable character, but not one that will be very memorable. She's pretty much the run of the mill urban fantasy heroine. Her back story is alluded to several times and it's clear she hasn't overcome her childhood baggage. She's 26, my age, she really should start working on sorting that out.

The breakout character of this book though is Gary. A 70+ year old man with a sense of humor and still pretty badass.

Honestly, I don't think I'm going to continue with this series as it's just meh.

Best Bookish Podcasts

This year I have really gotten into listening to podcasts, but with so many out there it's often impossible to find great ones. Here are my three top favorite bookish podcasts.

BR_Podcast_Square

"The Podcast is a weekly news and talk show about what’s new, cool, and worth talking about in the world of books and reading, brought to you by the editors of BookRiot.com"

Book Riot- This is a very interesting podcast that is very professionally produced. They talk about all types of genres and they cover everything from book awards to the publishing world.


Clear Eyes, Full Shelves- This is like sitting down with a couple of your fellow book bloggers and talking about what's new and good in YA. They interview some great authors and I've found a couple of great books through this podcast.

DBSA Romance Fiction Podcast- This is a short question/answer type podcast that is quick enough to listen to while driving to the grocery store. They talk almost exclusively about adult romance books, so if you are into YA it's likely you'll want to skip this one.

What bookish podcasts do you like to listen to?

My Reading Goals of 2014

I'm sorry I've been absent. I have been ill the majority of this year and had surgery on Christmas Eve and now feel better than I have for months, so I shall be around more.

I will be doing a 12 of 12 Challenge. In order to diversify my reading this year I want to read 12 books in 12 different genres or sub-genres. Some of the books might qualify for multiple groups, but in all I’d like to read 100 books this year.


12 Historical Fiction
12 Non-fiction
12 Debut Novels
12 Paranormal Fiction
12 Contemp
12 Recommended Reads
12 Books sitting on my shelf
12 Self-published Books
12 Classics
12 Books with less than 150 pgs
12 Young Adult Novels
12 Sequels to Series


Do you have any reading goals for 2014? Can you believe it's already 2014?
