Rebecca Buchanan

Rebecca Buchanan is the editor of the Pagan literary ezine Eternal Haunted Summer. She is also the editor-in-chief of Bibliotheca Alexandrina. She thinks it is incredibly unfair that she must work for a living rather than being able to read all day. In her next life, she would like to be a library cat.

Yes, it is that time of year again! It is hearts and flowers and candy time! Which also means that it is time for me to revisit a favorite literary genre: romance.

I am not ashamed to admit that most of the books on my e-reader are romance. They often contain elements of other genres (I am particular fan of science fiction romance, or sfr, and fantasy romance), but the lovey dovey stuff is definitely there. Since my first two posts on the topic (here and here), I have discovered several more books which should interest my fellow bibliophiles.

Welcome to the 2014 edition of BookMusings' Literary Discoveries! *insert much tooting of horns and throwing of confetti here* Looking back over my LibraryThing account and my postings here on PaganSquare, as well as at Eternal Haunted Summer, this has been quite a year for good literature. Not only did I find many new books and series to enjoy, and recommend to others, but I discovered entirely new authors.

The problem with being a book lover is that new, awesome books are constantly being written and published. I will not live long enough to read all of the books on my To Read list. I just have to accept that -- and make all of the other bibliophiles out there just as miserable as me by adding to their To Read lists. *insert evil laugh here*

    Wickedly Wonderful will be out December 2nd, so you won't have to wait too long! And I hope Lisa continues with the series too. Ha

    @Deborah Blake: "Wickedly Dangerous" was a lot of fun. I look forward to the next two(?) books. I hope Shearin continues her SPI

    I'm so glad you liked Wickedly Dangerous! (I loved Lisa Shearin's book too, and have to go look up the others now.)

    Thanks so much for this! I'll be looking for those books. Comics are delightful, and so is the women's creative tradition vibrant

A few days ago, Shirl Sazynski (author of the awesome One-Eyed Cat blog here at PS) recommended a new science fiction novel that she was enjoying: Fortune's Pawn by Rachel Bach. While I read a lot of sf, I don't read much military sf, but this sounded interesting. So, I clicked over to B&N and scrolled through the customer reviews.

Most of the reviews were quite positive. One negative review caught my eye, though -- not because it was negative, but because of the anonymous reviewer's reason for giving Fortune's Pawn a single star:
