Confession: I Hate Anthologies

Can we be real for a moment? We love books, we love authors, but unless some of y’all have been holding out on me, none of us are terribly wealthy. We can’t just buy as many books as we want at the drop of a hat. We compensate by going to used book stores, …

Review: “Jamb” (Cornerstone #3) by Misty Provencher

My Review of “Jamb”:

Jamb missed the mark for me, unfortunately.

The action didn’t really get underway until about 50% of the way through, when they left the Hotel Celare. Until then, they were just milling around, being generally suspicious of everyone not in their own Cura (group) and reacting to various eruptions of drama. Between …

Book Chat: Deciding What to Not Review

Sometimes, I guilt myself too much about this whole blogging thing. I’ll read a book, and it’ll be okay, not great. I move on from it, forget most of it, and then two weeks later haven’t reviewed it, because I don’t care about it that much. Right now, I’ve got a couple of books …

Review: “The Knife of Never Letting Go” by Patrick Ness

My Review of “The Knife of Never Letting Go”:

The Knife of Never Letting Go has been in my TBR pile since November, and I decided to start it last week while setting up a computer lab at work. I notified Twitter and some good-natured taunts began. My friends wanted all the updates, so here …

Book Chat: What do you see?

Let’s Get to Know Each Other

Today’s discussion has little to do with books, except that books and a quote about them got me thinking about this. It’s sort of a peek into the non-bookish parts of my personality, and I’d love it if you answered the question for yourself as well!

Lately, I’ve been …

Review: Just One Year + Just One Night by Gayle Forman

My Review of Just One Year and “Just One Night”:

I went into Just One Year in a very good way, and that was this: lots of people had already read it and were disappointed, given the spectacularly poor marketing that touted Just One Year as a sequel in which one would find out what …

Month in Review: June 2014

June was a busy month at work, but thankfully I also had lots of time to read and blog! I whittled away at my spring TTT list, made a new one for the summer, and managed to only buy 4 books! That’s pretty good for me, and I’m calling it a win.
