Artemis – Review

"It's hard to run with a hundred kilograms of gear on -- even in lunar gravity. But you'd be amazed how fast you can hustle when your life is on the line." Andy Weir is back with his unique and addicting blend of factual science fiction and smart ass humor. This time we're not fighting [...]

January Wrap-Up

"You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book!"  ~Dr. Suess January started off with a BANG!!! I ended December on a roll of fantastic books! And while I wish it could have been all five star reads all through the month, they can't all be winners... [...]

2018 – We have plans!

Last year I sat down around this time, give or take a few days, and started this blog. When I first started, I wasn't exactly sure what this space was going to be. I knew I wanted to explore my writing more, and I wanted to start reviewing books. But I didn't really know what [...]

2017: A Year In Review

Reading challenge: 139/75 So back when I first began this blog, one of the challenges I wanted to do was set a goal in Goodreads, and then NOT CHANGE IT! I set my goal of 75 books based on how I did in 2016, and I ended up reading 139. It felt strange to me [...]

A review: Me Before You

#readathon

Anyhoo, I recently stumbled on this thing called a readathon. It's a 24 hour reading marathon challenge. http://www.24hourreadathon.com And I thought, that sounds [...]

Crimes Against a Book Club

"But if I'm going to do something stupid, it's always more fun to do it with a friend." Some books are just fun. They grab you from the beginning and take you on an outrageous ride. This book was exactly that. Fun. I think it's safe to assume that we all, or at least most [...]

March Wrap Up

March was a busy month for me. I ended up reading six books. Goodreads suspiciously has my reading challenge as ahead of schedule. I'm beginning to think Goodreads is just trying to keep my self-esteem intact. I finished the second and third book in the Red Queen series. I have mixed feelings about them. First, [...]

Read Or Die: 2017 Reading Challenge

For the last two years, I have participated in the Goodreads reading challenge. My first year, I kicked serious literary ass. I read! I conquered! Truthfully, I have no idea whether I read more that year than in year's past, because I had never really tracked my reading.  Bookworm confession: I am terrible at managing [...]
