Sadly, I think I've reached the end of my patience with this series. It started out wonderfully, and I will always consider the first, Outlander, to be one of my favorite books of all time. Unfortunately, Gabaldon just couldn't seem to keep her mojo working. At least, not for me. I end...

As far as Outlander novels go, Drums of Autumn is the most bodice-ripperish out of the 4 I've read so far. Mainly, because the entire book is plotted around a MISUNDERSTANDING that could have been resolved with one adult conversation. Oh, how I hate those in romance novels!
Here is how it goes. In...

And we have more Jamie and Claire and the others =) ♥
I'm always going to put up the spoiler alert because there is always so much for me to say. I was also talking with a friend about how the books are starting to run together. My reviews may end up being from books before, all combined. Who ever...

One conversation could have easily solved this plot's problem. ONE.

Gabaldon's sex-ridden, hugely researched, academically adventurous, time travel/sci-fi meets historical romance novels qualify as trash novels for lit nerds -- they're absolutely a guilty pleasure. From clan warfare to herbal medicine to genealogy to British history to WWII, the books are packed...

Another epic read. This will be a quick review as I dinna have the time to do a full one.
It took me two weeks to read this one. Granted it coincided with the start of holidays so that usually means less reading time for me. I LOVED it, I LOVE Jamie, I LOVE Jamie and Claire.
Roger and Brianna, yes,...

I never thought I'd be the kind of person who would get swept up in a series of thousand-page epic fantasy adventure book, but here I am having finished book #4, mad that I have to wait a couple of days until the next installment arrives in the mail. I spoiled myself a little for Drums of Autumn,...

I too, am one of those folks that was totally in love with Outlander and, despite some rather graphic violence, thought it was a good enough book that I have continued to read the series up to this one. Unforunately, like most series, this one does not get better. By this book DG is reusing plots...

Definitely my least favourite in the series so far, purely because the first 45% of this book was SO BORING. But the last 55% almost made up for it.

First half of this book was fairly slow, but the second half blew me away. I especially loved watching Brianna and Roger's relationship blossom.
These characters are a pleasure to read, it's like coming home to family. Loved it!
