Magic Carpet Ride Books is a blog run by Jane, a lifetime bookaholic. My first love was children’s books and then books like Newberry award winners in middle school followed by an obsession with horror in the 70’s during my high school years. Now I read in various genres and enjoy serious books as well as books that are just plain fun, sexy, and scary. As a writer myself (30+ books and counting), I adore good writing above all else. I believe books should be entertaining and have little patience for tedious, should-have-been-edited-to-half-its-length, and overly pretentious tomes.

On this site you’ll find heavy traces of my book OCDness like lists and challenges as well as reviews.
