Review: Rex Libris, Volume I: I, Librarian (Rex Libris #1-5) by James Turner

Review: Rex Libris, Volume I: I, Librarian (Rex Libris #1-5) by James Turner

When I learned there was a Librarian themed graphic novel, I had to try it. I know I’m not a fan of graphic novels but I felt confident I’d like this one. Well, I didn’t like this one – but not because it’s a graphic novel. I didn’t like it… Read more »

Review: A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers #2) by Becky Chambers *spoilers*

Review: A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers #2) by Becky Chambers *spoilers*

I absolutely loved reading A Closed and Common Orbit. I enjoyed reading the sections on Pepper/Jane 23 more than on Sidra/Lovelace but when taken as a whole, I wanted to hug this book! I felt that A Closed and Common Orbit clearly exemplifies the idea of “if you can’t see… Read more »

Review: The Cloud Roads (The Books of the Raksura #1) by Martha Wells

Review: The Cloud Roads (The Books of the Raksura #1) by Martha Wells

I don’t have a lot of experience with Martha Wells – one short story (of the Raksura) and that’s about it. So, I had no real expectations as to how I would enjoy this book. And I did. By the end of the book, I found The Cloud Roads very,… Read more »

Review: Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief by Katy Bowman

Review: Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief by Katy Bowman

I first learned of Katy Bowman in a very roundabout fashion: my stylist and I were discussing women’s health issues – specifically diastasis recti – and how there appears to be a dearth of easy to locate information. So I decided to research diastasis recti workouts and books. And I… Read more »

Review: Old Man’s War (Old Man’s War #1) by John Scalzi

Review: Old Man’s War (Old Man’s War #1) by John Scalzi

I’ve followed Scalzi’s blog for years and I quite like the man. I think this is why I find it ironic that I’ve never read any of his work – until now. In the space of two months my bookclub has read two books by Scalzi…and I’ve enjoyed both. I… Read more »

Review: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1) by N.K. Jemisin

Review: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1) by N.K. Jemisin

I purchased my copy of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms in Sept 2011. This means that The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms qualifies for my 2017 The Mt. TBR Struggle is Real! challenge at 5 years, 6 months. I think I’m still trying to parse my feelings toward my read of The Hundred… Read more »

Review: I’m Judging You by Luvvie Ajayi

Review: I’m Judging You by Luvvie Ajayi

Here is where I dole out shade, side-eye, and basic-but-necessary advice for the needy – the logic-deficient who consistently come up short in this new world order of 140-character opinions, Facebook beefs, Instagram groupies, and pop culture idolization, i.e., The waste land, where common sense has tragically become the rarest… Read more »

Review: Zarsthor’s Bane (Witch World #11: High Hallack Cycle #4) by Andre Norton  *spoilers*

Review: Zarsthor’s Bane (Witch World #11: High Hallack Cycle #4) by Andre Norton *spoilers*

Bane: [beyn] noun 1. death; destruction; ruin. 2. Obsolete. that which causes death or destroys life I love this book. It’s weird and dreamy and at some points really hard to understand (and follow). I’ve read Zarsthor’s Bane many, many times now. I can honestly say that I feel that… Read more »

Review: Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

Review: Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

Gosh. I really didn’t care for this one at all. 🙁 And that makes me rather sad. I mean, I read a lot of Lauren Dane. But the Chase Brothers series and the Petal, Georgia spin off aren’t…working for me. At all. So. Once and Again. Lily and Nathan grew… Read more »

Review: The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers #1) by Becky Chambers

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is one of the best group reads I’ve had all year! I truly enjoyed this read – even though I didn’t expect to at first. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is a…difficult book to categorize. When I’ve tried to… Read more »
