  1. Do you ever read anything you like? Or are you one of these frustrated reviewers who can’t get published?

    Or are you published and I’ve just never heard of you?

    You’re pretty cruel and dismissive. And quit giving spoilers.



  2. I think you are fun and nice person. Although I don’t agree with you on many things, I like your individuality and would like to thank you for sharing pieces of your personality so eloquently.

    Best regards,


  3. Hi Rikki! 🙂
    I just clicked over to your blog for the first time to check out your Steampunk Challenge for 2011 (I came from Beth Fish Reads blog at which she links your challenge), and wanted to let you know that I poked around at some of your posts and really like your blog and your “voice”. You’ve got an eclectic interest in reading genres– some that I share and some that I honestly don’t know so much about. For both those reasons, I plan on visiting regularly to compare notes and learn something new, too!

    All the best! 🙂


    • Hi Christine, yes, I suppose my taste in books is quite eclectic. Thanks for stopping over and having a look around. Your comment made my day. I don’t think I know your blog yet, but I will definitely come over and check it out, too.


      • You’re welcome. So glad I made your day. 🙂
        I failed to mention in my first comment how much I really like your header graphic. Since I read that you enjoy digital scrapbooking, I am guessing you created the art yourself. It’s unique and eye-catching.


        • Thanks, Christine. Yes, I put the header together myself from various images. On my credits page I always list what and whose images I used, so they are not all mine. But I have to admit that I am in love with this header myself. Don’t think I will switch to another one any time soon, :).


    • Linda, really, you agree on Sookie Stackhouse and True Blood? I posted a whole article about what was awful about the series, you might appreciate it, :).


  4. I actually want to comment on your name. My real name is Erika, but my parents called me Rikki since I was born. I’ve met very few other women called Rikki. Is it short for something
