Biography

Right now I'm more of a reader than a writer, though I do have a reading Blog, where I blog about what I read. Feel free to browse it, there's a decent number of pieces from this site, as well as other easily accessible written works that have been enjoyable. Occasionally I will mention a piece that I didn't enjoy, but that is very rare.

Smashwords book reviews by Katie Boofer

  • Deadly Wands on Dec. 12, 2011

    This book is unique in the way it presents an alternate world history. It demonstrates knowledge about tactics, as well as ways that various cultures interact. It's based in a fictional copy of our world, so a lot of the places named are ones the reader will know or recognize. noy recommended for children. Teens perhaps, but definetly not children.

  • The Winter Princess on Dec. 16, 2011

    Good story,and a fun read. I do recommend that the author has a proof reader make some corrections. There are some mistakes that if corrected would help to make the piece seem more professional, as well as make it more polished. see a more detailed review here: http://thebookshelfgoblin.blogspot.com/2011/12/winter-court-story.html
  • Christmas in NeverEarth on Dec. 21, 2011
    (no rating)
    This is an open ended piece, but it is quite effective. The language evokes a type of majestic fantasy realm like that of C.S. Lewis. But instead of a child entering the realm, we see an adult. The story itself is clean, so I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to teens or adults. Children might enjoy some of the scenes, but the true magic of the piece might be lost on them. If we are lucky, we will see more in the future about Anthony's return to NeverEarth. (longer review here)http://thebookshelfgoblin.blogspot.com/2011/12/fantasy-christmas-tale.html
  • Bah, Humbug! (A Romantic Comedy Christmas Novella) on Dec. 21, 2011

    If you get this book, you're going to find yourself looking at a candy cane sweet story, full of gentle laughs that don't seem to stop. But as much fun as there is in the story, there are also a few sobering ones, that may induce tears. All together in my opinion that makes it a good read.

  • A Vampire's Christmas Carol on Dec. 21, 2011

    In all reality, this story hasn't got much in common with Dicken's classic Christmas story. Instead the title is a play on words, but you don't find that out until halfway through the story. I would like to see more of this authors thoughts and ideas on vampires. Her proposed hierarchy seems as though it may be very complex. Also her suggestion that vampires have an intolerance to human tears is intriguing. (review here)http://thebookshelfgoblin.blogspot.com/2011/12/different-kind-fo-christmas-carol.html
