Book Review: The End of Oz

And just like that, I have completed the Dorothy Must Die books. The End of Oz was different from all the other books, in that it switches between Amy’s and Dorothy’s perspectives. So, yeah, spoiler alert: Dorothy still ain’t dead. This is especially relevant if you’ve read Yellow Brick War. At the end, you think... Continue Reading →

Book Club Book Review: Artemis

Ever since I heard that Andy Weir was publishing another book, I have been dying to read Artemis. I was enthralled by The Martian - both the book and movie. The Martian was one of the best book-to-movie adaptations that I have ever seen. But, I digress. Back to Artemis.  Before reading Artemis, I browsed through my friends' reviews of it... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Yellow Brick War

Back to the Dorothy Must Die books! I typically try to go straight through any series I come across before picking up a new series or book. However, this series and The Mortal Instruments books have both equally captured my attention. Also I need to buy the second Mortal Instruments book and I already had... Continue Reading →

February Book Club

As you may recall from way back at the beginning of January, Brittany of Brittany's Pages and I are doing a virtual book club/buddy reads this year. Last month's book, Artemis was phenomenal! I'm a little behind on my reviews, but my review of Artemis will go live this Sunday. In the meantime, I have... Continue Reading →

2017 Reading Challenge: A Summary

That's a wrap on 2017 and its reading challenge! I read a lot of books this year in genres such as sci-fi, fantasy, biography, memoir, fiction, non-fiction, and theology. I started this year with the goal of reading 103 books. While I did not reach that initial goal, I am very happy with completing (and... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Princess Diarist

It was one movie. It wasn’t supposed to do what it did – nothing was supposed to do that. Nothing ever had. Movies were meant to stay on screen, flat and large and colorful, gathering you up into their sweep of a story, carrying you rollicking along to the end, then releasing you back into...

Book Review: Working Fire

Yes, I have finished two books two days in a row. To be fair, I've been reading yesterday's book since mid-October. Today's book is an audiobook, and I've been spending a lot of time in the car recently. And just listening to it at home because I couldn't put it down!  Working Fire by Emily Bleeker...

Book Review: Everything We Left Behind

I read Kerry Lonsdale's Everything We Keep earlier this year. Everything We Left Behind is the sequel to that novel. I wasn't completely thrilled with Everything We Keep, as you can see from my review on Goodreads. It was interesting, but not captivating. The series has a fascinating premise, but I felt like the author was... Continue Reading →
