I read pretty much anything, from fantasy (City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett) to romance (Bared to You by Sylvia Day) to classics (Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad).  The only genres I don't read are self-help and comic books/graphic novels.

Luck Be A Lady (Charmed, #22) by Scott Ciencin

Luck Be a Lady - Scott Ciencin

16/1 - This was just okay. The second Ciencin book in a row and I don't know that they are getting better as they go. Once again I didn't feel like Ciencin was really getting the characterisation of any of the Halliwell sisters right, especially Phoebe who seemed to say and think things I didn't see the tv version of her character saying. She seemed a lot more obsessed with Cole and her insistence that Cole couldn't be allowed to help them in any way, to the extent of choosing to put herself and her sisters in danger before taking help from Cole, than I expected. The tv Phoebe always seemed more intelligent than that, to me. I don't know if it's just the way the actors delivered their lines or that the writers in charge of the show were better at coming up with quips than Ciencin is, but none of his one-liners were funny - maybe they just don't translate to reading as well as they do to hearing/watching. This is one of the many books I bought from the library (so for a period of time I 'owned' it) for $0.50 and I'll be returning them to the sale shelves (so I will no longer own it, and therefore it's gone on the 'books I used to own' shelf) as I wouldn't read this book a third time and I would think hard before reading another Ciencin fan fiction (not counting the ones I may already own).
