April Reads in Review

Proven Guilty by Jim Butcher, Dresden Files Book 8 (for more on cover art: Vincent Chong, Subterranean Press) This series of books is terrific: the main character is quirky and fun, the writing is fast and funny, the books work as stand-alones and as a arching series. In addition to Jim Butcher's great writing, and the always amusing … Continue reading April Reads in Review

March Reads in Review

Insurgent by Veronica Roth is the second book of the trilogy which started with Divergent. This story continues to be gripping, fast-paced, unpredictable, and fresh. I hit a little bit of a lull at one point and I had to look at why: I don't like it when main character/love interests aren't getting along. So, … Continue reading March Reads in Review

The next book I finished was my audiobook of Dead Beat by Jim Butcher, book 7 in the Dresden Files series. These books may be structured in a formulaic way, but there are definitely plotlines getting more intense as the story arch progress, and the writing is HILARIOUS! I laugh out loud (yes I actually … Continue reading March Reads in Review

Is it just me or is February really zooming by? How strange to have rain when this time a few years ago we were snowed in! Book No. 4 The fourth book I finished reading was the second book of the Abarat series, Abarat: Days of Magic, Nights of War by Clive Barker. As expected we … Continue reading February Reads in Review

A new month, a new batch! Book No. 3 My third finished book was The Girl with All the Gifts by M. R. Carey. This book was super fast-paced and exciting, so it's no surprise that this book is being made into a movie! I'll definitely be doing a compare and contrast once it's out and … Continue reading February Reads in Review

In addition to my modest book reading last month, I was also reading a lot of political articles, and signing a lot of petitions. If you live in America like me, you might feel like the whole country has gone crazy lately! Whatever your soap box, I encourage you to stand up for what you … Continue reading January Reads in Review

I am a notoriously slow reader, so don't be too disappointed in my modest two finished books for this first month of reading. I've read about a million otomé romance novels on my phone but they don't count as books since you play them as phone games. Oops! Book No. 1 My first finished book for … Continue reading January Reads in Review
