Bitsy's Books

Note: I'm uploading my books from Goodreads and since there are like 200+ it's going to take awhile. The uploading seems a bit wonky too, so hang with me as I fix things. Also there may be spoilers until I can make all the appropriate tags.


I'm an ex-English Major who, sick of reading classics after college, decided to read all the trashy books I didn't before because I was too snobby. Since graduating, I've entertained myself with comics, YA, and romance novels, finding out they can not only be decently written, but superbly written. I've since recovered from my classics aversion, but I'm now more open-minded reader willing to read from any genre. If a book has kick-ass heroines and/or witty banter and/or takes place in a different time or place (including fantasy settings), I will most likely fall in love with it. My favorite authors are Jane Austen, Shakespeare, E.M. Forster, Meljean Brook, Sarah Rees Brennan, Rachel Hartman, Catherynne M. Valente, and Aliette de Bodard.

Red Fox - Karina Halle 0 out of 5 StarsOH JESUS MARY AND JOSEPH, I AM DONE! Go watch Supernatural, read The Mediator series by Meg Cabot, burn your eyes out - do ANYTHING but read this book.I guess I'm just naively idealistic. I thought maybe the navel-gazing, pity-party, hapless, idiotic characters would morph into actually likable (or at least interesting) three-dimensional people. I thought maybe the love story and the ghost hunting would seamlessly blend together. Basically I was hoping this series would turn into what I wanted it to be, not what it actually is.Review to come.
