March Wrap Up

What is it they say about March? In like a lion, out like a lamb? Well, that certainly was the case in Las Vegas anyway. Cold weather and winds gave way to warmer weather and Spring, or the ten minutes we get here in the desert, appears to finally be here. 42/125 - Goodreads Challenge [...]

To Kill A Kingdom – Review

"Technically, I'm a murderer, but I like to think that's one of my better qualities." When I said that 2018 was going to be the year of epic books, I'll admit, I had no idea how accurate that statement was. To Kill A Kingdom is one of those epic books, that swam into my unassuming [...]

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... [...]

The Philosopher’s Flight – Review

"It's never mattered that I can't do it. What the heart loves, the will chooses and the mind justifies." The Philosopher's Flight is an interesting mix of historical science fantasy, where in our past, we discover the use of empirical philosophy, the merging of magic and science. This particular branch of study is female dominated, [...]

Woman Last Seen In Her Thirties – Review

"I spent the first few weeks after Adam's bombshell waiting for him to wake from this nightmare he had dreamed up for us both and realize the only compassionate, logical thing to do was to come back."

This combination is incredibly creative and takes you deep into not just a fairy tale, or it's retelling, but [...]

2018 – We have plans!

Berserker – Review

"She was a Berserker, cursed to fly into action whenever anyone she loved was in danger. A killer who would be compelled to murder elegantly, viciously, and without remorse." Berserker is the story of a family blessed with the Nytte. Or cursed with it. It depends on who you ask. The story is told through [...]

"People warn you not to stare at the sun, she thinks, but it's so much sky that hurts." Tiny Mite is an imaginative 8 year old girl, living with her mother and grandmother in rural South Dakota. She is rambunctious and clever and lives in her own world. Her teacher thinks her imagination is a [...]

Lost Boy – Review

"Peter will say I'm a villain, that I wronged him, that I never was his friend. But I told you already, Peter lies." Oh what a dark delight this book was! I really love diving deep into the psyche of a villain and reading how they were made. But this book is so deliciously different. [...]
