The Soul Bond (Werewolf High Book Four), by Anita Oh

It’s my last review of 2016, so I decided to return to the YA fiction equivalent of comfort food. Something familiar that would tie me over until the new year. I’ve already read the first three books in Anita Oh’s Werewolf High series, and since the fourth one just came out, it made for a […]

My Top 10 Songs of 2016

Every summer, I run a game for my Facebook friends where I choose a decade and quote a different song every day. The first person to correctly name the song and artist get a point each, and at the end of the summer, the friend with the most points wins bragging rights. Been doing that […]

Life in the Fat Lane, by Cherie Bennett

I’m not sure exactly when I came across this book—or exactly when I bought a copy for my Kindle—but as I was recently scrolling through titles I owned but hadn’t yet read, I decided to look into it. I had bought it for a reason, and with the calendar year coming to an end, I […]

This Is Me, by C.E. Wilson

It doesn’t take too much effort to look through the review list on this blog to see that I’m a fan of author C.E. Wilson. What I like most about her work is the lens she uses to present deep or important themes. The situations in her stories fall into the speculative fiction genre, but […]

My Top 10 Christmas Movies

It’s the first day of the month, so it’s time for a Top 10 list! Being December, let’s go with Christmas movies. No offense to my non-Christian friends and followers, of course, and in lieu of an Honorable Mention list, I’ll shout out a few Hanukkah movies and/or specials. If you haven’t seen any of […]

The One Moment, by OK Go

I’m a big fan of the band OK Go, so much that back in February, I devoted a Top 10 list to their awesomely creative music videos. Not even two weeks after I posted that list, they released a new video that was so incredible I had to revise my list. Well, yesterday they released […]

Demon in Sight, by Dan Rix

There are many emotions a reader goes through when faced with the final book in a series s/he has been enjoying. Obviously, there’s the unbridled excitement that a new book is out, but it’s also a bittersweet feeling because after that, there will be no more. There may be trepidation, based on high expectations that […]

Untitled Beauty, by C.E. Wilson

I’ve read a few of author C.E. Wilson’s books over the past twelve months or so. She’s got a vivid imagination, she’s incredibly prolific with books coming out frequently, and she creates provocative worlds, characters, and situations. I have enjoyed all the books I’ve read of hers so far. A few months ago, her book […]

My Top 10 Fictional Presidents

This country is on the verge of a historic presidential election in many ways. Not going to get all political about it, but I thought it would be fun to consider some fictional presidents that could conceivably do a better job than the current crop of candidates. No one else voting on this but me. […]

How to Hang a Witch, by Adriana Mather

It’s October, close to Halloween, and I wanted a book to match the season. I had caught wind of this book a few months before its release and added it to my to-read list, but it took me a couple months before I remembered to check it out of the local library. The book description […]
