PREDICTING YOUR NEXT GREAT READ

“Dark Matter” by: Blake Crouch

My husband and I kept seeing banners and promotional bookmarks etc when we were at BookCon (in May) held in Chicago this year. We found the area where they were handing out the free ARC copies of it and we each managed to snag one. Once home, we both proceeded to devour it. The premise of “What if?” is not new to Sci-fi types stories of course, but the way […]

Author Meeting With Patrick Rothfuss!

My hubby and I got to attend a local luncheon with the author of the Name of The Wind, and The Wise Man’s Fear, on November 4th. It was a room of about twenty-five people and it was low-key. Patrick answered all questions thoughtfully and said that movie deals are still being gone over but things were moving forward. He said he couldn’t say too much about specifics since not […]

“Bossypants” by: Tina Fey

I was a bit hesitant to read this as I had read very mixed reviews about it. Some loved, some hated, some said meh. HOWEVER, I usually tend to not agree with a lot of people when they don’t even know what I like, they can’t judge for me! Ahem, anyways, I really enjoyed this. I didn’t think it was laugh out loud funny, but it was intelligent and well […]

“This Is Where It Ends” by: Marieke Nijkamp

This book is a realistic portrayal of what could happen in a situation like this. So here is what I think works in this book: A) The way that it portrays leaks via media and the way that people comment/question things without knowing all details/facts yet. There are always trolls online. People that only respond with what they think will stir up trouble. Haters. People that don’t believe what is […]

“Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)” by: Mindy Kaling

This book was okay. I have never seen The Office or The Mindy Project though so maybe that’s why I didn’t really enjoy it as much as maybe others have. I wanted to read a funny memoir. I have read other memoirs by women without being familiar with their work prior to their writings and those have inspired me to check out their work…but as previously written, this was just […]

“Batman and Psychology: A Dark and Stormy Knight” by: Travis Langley

Wow. This was…incredible. I read the Game of Thrones and Psychology and also the Walking Dead and Psychology by the same author and this one is above and beyond the best one imho. Lots of definitions and citing of specific themes and moments to illustrate, this work dives into the world of Batman through his many incarnations. From comics to films, it’s all included and quotes are used throughout from […]

“Elementary, She Read (Sherlock Holmes Bookshop Mystery #1)” by: Vicki Delany

This was/is my very first approved Netgalley arc and I was stoked to dive in. Prior to receiving this Advanced Reading ebook to review, I had not read anything by Vicki Delany. After some research, I discovered that she is a Canadian mystery novelist and she has also published under the pen name of Eva Gates. I will be definitely be keeping an eye out for more works by her. […]

“Year of No Clutter: A Memoir” by Eve Schaub

I am posting this review as written. I wrote it in chunks as I was reading the book, so hopefully it is not repetitive. I decided to take a different approach while reading. I usually take notes, or make small notes on Goodreads when I post current reading status updates, but this one I typed my updates in small batches. In reading the description: “From Hoarders to The Life- Changing […]
