April Wrap-Up Part 2

  The second half of April was just slow. I read quite a few graphic novels but the novel reading slowed down. For a few weeks in there I didn’t have a dedicated eReader, which honestly bummed me out (till my hubby treated me to a new one) and I just didn’t have a lot of… Continue reading April Wrap-Up Part 2

April Wrap-up Part 1

    April has not been a very successful month (for me) as far as reading goes. There is unfortunately a lot going on right now and I ran into a couple of road blocks along the way that really threw me off. But this sort of thing happens, and we just keep moving.   So… Continue reading April Wrap-up Part 1

Thoughts: Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

We're swerving way out of my usual range with this one. You know those books you immediately think 'That's not for me' but every one goes on and on? Eventually you break and try it? That was this one for me and boy howdy did I have a strong reaction. Daisy Jones and the Six… Continue reading Thoughts: Daisy Jones and The Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid

Book Access When Stuck at Home

   So many of us are trapped indoors per safety regulations - please stay inside, guys don’t be dumb. And even if you’re getting out because of work or care obligations your library might be closed. So here is how I wanted to talk about accessing books while at home.      I’d like to add this works… Continue reading Book Access When Stuck at Home

Self-Isolation Recommendations: Just a little light reading

  So it’s a bad time in the world, we can all agree on that. So I thought I’d make two posts - one talks about how to get easier access to books while trapped inside and one about some easy and light reads to get into that will help distract from the mess of the… Continue reading Self-Isolation Recommendations: Just a little light reading

Thoughts: Turning Darkness Into Light by Marie Brennan

My reading is restricted these days almost exclusively to my Kindle. So I'm not being too picky when it comes to things that look interesting - and are on sale. Turning Darkness Into Light by Marie Brennan is the start of a series that follows up the Natural History of Dragons series she completed a… Continue reading Thoughts: Turning Darkness Into Light by Marie Brennan

Series Thoughts: Fruits Basket

    Everyone should be impressed - I have managed to finish a series. This is unusual for me, especially during such a stressful time as the past 4 months have been. I got lucky and was able to get most of the series through my library and the last 5 volumes my friend let me borrow… Continue reading Series Thoughts: Fruits Basket

Thoughts : The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee

I'm sure the title of this one was meant to be a double meaning sort of thing. "Haha, look, she has a crush on someone who is epic and also she can crush things in an epic fashion!" But I 100% think that missed it's mark. I remember hearing about this originally and thinking -… Continue reading Thoughts : The Epic Crush of Genie Lo by F.C. Yee

Thoughts: Exit Strategy by Martha Wells

I'm terrible at keeping up with series. Unless they're a comic series where it's a fast read you can bet I hardly ever do finish it. I am more than happy to admit that's because I don't want to be disappointed by follow up books. If I enjoy a story I don't want to read… Continue reading Thoughts: Exit Strategy by Martha Wells
