July wrapup

This month I successfully completed 24 in 48, a reading marathon where participants spend 24 hours out of 48 reading. During that weekend, I finished 6 books. That explains the increased number of books I completed this month. Here is a brief description of each. Let me know what you’ve read or are interested in! […]

Recursion by Blake Crouch

Recursion by Blake Crouch My rating: 5 of 5 stars The first thing I want to say is that I did not read Dark Matter. I know at least one person has said that the books were presented too similarly for them to have enjoyed this one as much, but coming into it with a […]

June wrap up

In June, I finished 22 books. That brings me to a total of 114 for the year. I am shocked and pleased with this change in my life. I get so much satisfaction out of reading, reviewing, and talking about books with people. I’m so glad you’re all on this journey with me. Although I […]

The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins

The Book Charmer by Karen Hawkins My rating: 3 of 5 stars Thank you to Bookish and the publisher for an advanced reader copy of this book. I chose this book based on the excerpt that Bookish allowed me to read. I was immediately drawn in to a story about two little girls, one of […]

An Enemy of the People by Henrik Ibsen

An Enemy of the People by Henrik Ibsen My rating: 3 of 5 stars I listened to this book as part of the 2019 Audiofile Sync program. It was acted out by a full cast. At first, I was put off by what I perceived to be bad acting, but as the story went on, […]


I had changed the subject line of this website to show that this blog would occasionally cover non-book topics. So far, I haven’t written about anything but books. Part of that has been that I thought it wouldn’t be very *cool* to make posts where I’m basically just complaining about the creative endeavors of others, […]

May Wrap Up

Even in a month where I felt like I hadn’t read much, I finished 19 novels and 2 short stories. I don’t feel like it’s fair to count the short stories as books, but they are included in my collage. Here is a little information about each book. The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor […]

“Six of Crows” by Leigh Bardugo

Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo My rating: 3 of 5 stars The first thing I want to get out of the way is that I read this book without realizing that it was part of the larger Grishaverse. I have not read any of The Shadow and Bone Trilogy. Once I realized that there […]

Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier My rating: 2 of 5 stars I’ve read about 1/3 of this book and nothing has happened. Although it’s billed as suspenseful, I’m not finding myself on the edge of my seat. I’m just bored, waiting for these people to get over themselves and do something. I don’t get the […]
