Thoughts : Buddhism: An Introduction to the Buddha’s Life, Teaches and Practices by Joan Duncan Oliver

I knew next to nothing about Buddhism. Pretty much the base level of pop-culture references plus a few fly-away facts I'd picked up while studying Japanese in college. One afternoon while picking up my holds I broke my own library rules and browsed the new non-fiction releases shelf and grabbed this just for fun. Frankly,... Continue Reading →

Thoughts : The Dragon of Ynys by Minerva Cerridwen

A bit of a movement in independent publishing has attempted to bring different, diverse voices to fiction.

August Wrap-up Part 2

The second half of August was far more successful than the first half! I read a bit of everything here. Some YA, Fantasy/SF, romance, non-fiction, and a classic novel.

Library haul! I'm trying to keep it small with these library hauls recently! Some shorter stuff and something from my long term TBR I'm finally getting to!

June Wrap-Up

June was a small reading month for me. I didn't read a whole lot, but I had a few good things to read. Unfortunately I also had more than I normally have that was either a complete miss or a very meh read. I don't know if there was anything I read that I'd like... Continue Reading →
