Book Review: The Paper Magician Series by Charlie N. Holmberg

I read this entire series in three days time so I'm going to talk about all three books here in one big review. The fact that I read them all so quickly will probably give you a head's up on how much I enjoyed reading these. Spoiler: I liked them a lot. The Paper Magician... Continue Reading →


This Week in Reading: Scandinavian Inspired Epic Fantasy, A Magical Contest, and Vengeance?

Audiobook Review: World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War by Max Brooks

I read World War Z many years ago when a friend lent it to me and I enjoyed it a lot. What's not to love about a zombie apocalypse?

It continues the story of FitzChivalry Farseer, bastard born of the former heir to the Farseer throne, assassin,... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Annihilation

My husband and I went to see this on a whim (well, for him it was a whim--I'd been wanting to see it) and I'm really glad we got the chance to see it in theaters because it was quite a ride. Annihilation, directed by Alex Garland and staring Natalie Portman, is based on a... Continue Reading →
