Eve Dallas and Harry Potter: Why I Love Them

I’m assuming I’m one of the few people out there who hasn’t read every book of the In Death series by J.D. Robb or the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. If there are still a few of you out there that haven’t given either of these series a chance, keep reading. I’ll tell you my story and try to convince you it’s time to give these books a try.

Book Review: Sight Unseen Anthology

I completely love the idea of this project. 5 authors wrote short stories/novellas for an anthology…not that exciting right? Well, they decided that they would not reveal which author wrote which story! I think that’s a pretty amazing project to undertake. Everyone has authors they love. I do. Some of those authors are autobuy authors for me and some authors I am much more inclined to buy a book if their name is attached to it – even if the synopsis doesn’t sound all that great. They’re going to reveal who wrote what story in 3 months. I’m going to make my guesses now and see how good I am! Continue reading “Book Review: Sight Unseen Anthology”

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!

Book Review: The Girl Who Drank the Moon

The Girl Who Drank the Moon’s beautiful cover and magical title had attracted my attention for months but, since I don’t read much children’s literature, it never made it to the top of my TBR pile until it won the Newbery Medal and became the topic of conversation in the children’s department. Parent’s were asking about it, kids wanted to know why their teachers said they should read it, coworkers were looking for talking points–basically this book became homework. Wonderful wonderful homework. Continue reading “Book Review: The Girl Who Drank the Moon”

Book Review: Just a Geek by Wil Wheaton

Let’s start this review off on the right foot… I was a huge fan of Star Trek the Next Generation (a.k.a. STSG). I named my first cat Spot after Data’s ginger tabby. But I really tried to approach this review with an open and partial mind.

How to Tell if Your Cat is Plotting to Kill You by The Oatmeal and Matthew Inman

Yes, your cat is plotting to kill you. Just read the title. If it’s on the internet, it has to be true, and I’m posting this on the internet.
