Reflections of Neverland

The air is sweet, sickening sweet at times. Parts of the island never fail to make me hate being here just because of the way that it smells. But here in the Laughing Grass fields it isn’t so bad, it is almost sensual in the way that the spice mixes with the heat from the yellow sun. The warmth melts over my bare arms, now tanned with months of hunting with the boys for more adventures. There is…

I have a to admit, I had a little moment that I thought about scrapping the blog world and getting a real job doing something that someone else told me to do.

I loved the bad guys with the playful pirate smile, the villains that had that little bit of good still left in them. I gravitated towards the rouge types, the ones with the reputation for being a hidden hero behind…

Firefly Book Review - My Favorite Midlife Crisis by Toby Devens

Firefly Book Review – My Favorite Midlife Crisis by Toby Devens

My Favorite Midlife Crisis (Yet)My Favorite Midlife Crisis by Toby Devens

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Favorite Midlife Crisis ( Yet ) was on my list to read for a while and I am certainly glad that I did. Toby Devens is a clever writer and her characters are deeply thought out and likeable.

If I loved a woman…

Sometimes you look at her and you know, she is the one who hangs the moon and has the power to destroy your world, because you gave her all the secrets. But you love her and want to make a life with her. Why does that have to be so hard?

Women are complex, gentle, and even a little bit dangerous.  They have this way of being so complicated that nothing makes sense, and yet…
