Bookworm Problems

 

Please forgive the randomness of this post but after not posting for weeks I figured you deserved at least some explanation as to why.

Since the beginning of the year I’ve felt like I was one bad book or one distraction away from slipping into an epic book slump and, until recently, I was able to fend it off but in the end it got the better of me…and I blame Melinda for at least part of it, lol!

Audio Book Review: Norse Mythology

Neil Gaiman wrote a new book. That was pretty much all I need to know before making a buying decision but, even though it was an instabuy, I didn’t expect it to leave me wondering if this was the perfect audiobook. Continue reading “Audio Book Review: Norse Mythology”

Book Review: American Psychosis by E. Torrey Fuller

Where do I start? If you’re like me and enjoy historical non-fiction, then this one you may want to pick up. Keep in mind it’s about mental health treatment in the United States starting in the mid-20th century.

Book Review: Mr. Darcy’s Journey by Abigail Reynolds

The day a favorite author announces the release date for their latest novel is one of those wonderful bookworm moments–this book is real and is finally coming! Then there are the days, weeks, months of anticipation all leading up to the day that we (not so) patiently await delivery, those of us choosing a digital copy often waiting til the wee hours of the morning for our Kindles (Nooks etc) to update. And then, just when you think you can’t wait any longer–it arrives! Continue reading “Book Review: Mr. Darcy’s Journey by Abigail Reynolds”

Book Review: The Memory of Us by Camille Di Maio

I was totally blown away by Camille Di Maio’s debut novel, The Memory of Us. It is my favorite book so far this year. Continue reading “Book Review: The Memory of Us by Camille Di Maio”

Re-Read: A Tree Grows In Brooklyn

Sometimes you just need to re-read an old favorite. I’ve been in a book slump starting then abandoning book after book because nothing was grabbing me, finally I just gave up for a few days. Then the other night I decided to try again and while flipping through my Kindle library I stumbled upon A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, a book I’ve loved each time I’ve read it. But this time I started to wonder–is each read the same? Continue reading “Re-Read: A Tree Grows In Brooklyn”
