Monthly Wrap Up: November 2018

Wow, I can't believe November is over already! Only one more month of 2018 to go, I feel like most of this year has just flown right by. November was a weird month for me. At the beginning of it I was super busy with activities and then near the end of the month stuff... Continue Reading →

This Week in Reading: More Playing Catch-Up

Well, I had a pretty good week last week, but I did go off schedule again which put me behind in my 'official' reading. Hmm. :/  I finished up both Rabbit & Robot (so weird! but I loved it) and Small Favor. I also read The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee,... Continue Reading →

Monthly Wrap Up: September 2018

I managed, somehow, to have almost two entire free weekends in September! I spent some of that time reading, but I also caught up on review writing and such as well.

August has still been a pretty busy month for me with social activities and work--we're short staffed and for two weeks out of the month I was pretty much on my own and it left me feeling burned out and not like doing much of anything once I was home. Yet, somehow I managed to... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Valour and Vanity by Mary Robinette Kowal

This Week in Reading: Apocalypse and Magic Powers, More Dresden, Historical Fantasy, and Fantastic Curses.

Another busy week last week! I did manage to read a couple of books but, as usual lately, didn't finish all of the books on my list. I didn't get a chance to start Star Touched by A.L. Kaplan yet, so this is still on my list from last week. I really am looking forward... Continue Reading →
