Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson My rating: 3 of 5 stars Everyone seemed to love Nimona, but I’m not one of them. Let’s be clear, I didn’t hate this. It didn’t make me angry or make me want to rage quit out of the story. I just didn’t really enjoy it much. The titular character Nimona…

#BooktubeSFF Babbles: Shortlist Progress

I’m back again for another BooktubeSFF Babble. I’m really getting in to this stuff and there are some great topics so bear with me. This week’s topic is “Shortlist Progress” and eek. I’m not going to pretend that I am excellent at keeping up with this sort of thing. Generally I find a book or…

#T5W – Least Favorite Book in Your Favorite Series

Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey of gingerreadslainey. Here’s a link to her channel and the goodreads group. Everyone loves to get a little negative every so often. I know I do. There’s something about lamenting that is just wonderful, especially if you can do it with others. I’m not saying this is a…

Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein

Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein

Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein My rating: 4 of 5 stars My gut reaction when I first finished this book was that it was a 3.5 read. In the days since, I realized that it was much better than that. I just really needed to let it sink in and appreciate what it was.…

Browsing for Books?

There are three kinds of people in life. Those who are in and out with specific books in mind. Those who browse. Those who would only be seen around books under duress. Tuesday Talks was created by Janie and Janelle, I just jump on their creation with the rest of the participants. This week’s topic…

#BooktubeSFF Babbles: Fantasy Favorites

I decided to get in on the BooktubeSFF Babbles this time around. You might be wondering, why am I posting this blog when I could have just posted a video on say, my booktube channel? Honestly, I really have no clue other than that I just felt like doing it here. Sometimes I like feeling…

Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3) by Tahereh Mafi

Ignite Me (Shatter Me #3) by Tahereh Mafi

Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi My rating: 4 of 5 stars I’m impressed to watch this story go from a 2.75 with Shatter Me to a 4 with Ignite Me. I still have some issues, but this was rather enjoyable. I’m secretly hoping there will be more in the future. There’s still so much of…

Tuesday Talks: Series, to Continue or Not?

It’s time for Tuesday Talks which was created by Janie and Janelle. This week the topic is:┬áIf you do not enjoy the first book in a series do you still continue reading the series? There are times when you pick up a book, be that an anticipated release or simply something you’ve stumbled upon, and…

The Fold by Peter Clines

The Fold by Peter Clines My rating: 4 of 5 stars When I sat down with The Fold (which I received for review from the publisher), I didn’t have high expectations. Honestly, I didn’t really know what it was about. I knew it was by an author who wrote another book I read that I…

#T5W – Fictional Items I Want

I really wish I could change the title to Fictional Items I Need, because let’s be honest each on of these items give me a ladyboner of desire.

Now that I’ve left that image in your mind let’s talk a minute about how cruel fictional items are. When you run across one in a book or a show you realize that it’s something that would infinitely improve life. It would become so much more interesting. Then you start to wonder if there is a way to make those fictional items reality. When it comes to science fiction, sometimes those out of reach items become reality. Other times they don’t. No matter how you shake it there is always some sort of item that is lingering in the ether of your mind just wishing to become reality.

Jurassic Park (Jurassic Park #1) by Michael Crichton

Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton My rating: 4 of 5 stars Of course I’ve already seen Jurassic Park, though admittedly none of the sequels until the series revival Jurassic World. I wouldn’t be a 90s kid if I hadn’t. I have to admit, I haven’t seen it in a while. Long enough that I still…

Tuesday Talks: A Soundtrack for My Favorite Book

I don’t listen to music when I read. However when I saw that this week’s Tuesday Talks topic was “If you could throw together a soundtrack for your favorite book, what songs would you choose?” I had to give it a go. Not because I had a soundtrack in mind for my favorite book. Instead…

BEA 2016 – I’m Coming For You

May 10th is quickly approaching. In fact, we are officially less than two months away. Some of you may be wondering why this may be so exciting for me that I’m mentioning it here. I’m going to Chicago. For a very specific reason. I’m going to BEA (Book Expo America) to review the event and…

Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) by Tahereh Mafi

Unravel Me (Shatter Me #2) by Tahereh Mafi

Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi My rating: 3 of 5 stars Damn it. This book. I have so many mixed feelings about this. On one hand there were so many things that irritated the hell out of me. On the other there were these little glimmers of hope that made me think that this story…
