Book Review: The Physics of Everyday Things

The Physics of Everyday Things by James Kakalios seemed like a book that I should really enjoy. I love learning details about things we take for granted. But I just couldn’t get into it. I started reading it in August and it just didn’t catch my interest. I skimmed it and moved

Book Review: How Music Works

How Music Works by David Byrne (founder of Talking Heads) is the second book of the same title I’ve read in recent years. I read John Powell’s How Music Works¬†back in the summer of 2015. That book covers the sciencey side of music. How a note is made and why they work

Catching Up: Supergirl

Warning:¬†Spoilers below I’m hooked on the CW’s Arrowverse. I realize it’s super corny, and it is basically a prime time soap opera but I love it anyway. (I was hooked on Nashville and Empire for a while, so maybe I have a type.) But I really wasn’t able to get into Supergirl

We Don’t Deserve You Diana

I was nervous about the Wonder Woman movie. Diana was finally getting her own movie, and it had to be perfect. This wasn’t going to be Daredevil where it goes bad but the character ends up with his own Netflix show. Or Green Lantern, where it was shrugged off as “well, DC

Book Review: The Moth Presents All These Wonders

The Moth is a nonprofit that’s dedicated to storytelling. They host events with different themes and have a podcast and radio show. It comes off to me as TED meets StoryCorps. When I requested The Moth Presents All These Wonders, I had no idea what The Moth was. I just saw it

Audiobook Sources

Back in November, I wrote about how I’m getting more interested in audiobooks. After which a friend messaged me asking for my favorite audiobook source. If one person had that question I’m sure more of you do as well. These are my two primary sources, now that Shelfie is shutting down: The

Book Review: Hag-Seed

I enjoy Shakespeare, especially retelling of Shakespeare. After all the Bard wrote for the people, and I like to think he’d appreciate his stories still being adapted to this day. So when I saw Hag-Seed, a retelling of The Tempest by Margret Atwood, was available for review, I reserved my copy. I’m

Book Review: Beyond Surrender

It’s always bittersweet when one of your favorite series ends. And with Beyond Surrender, I’m there with my favorite romance series. Even though the women who write as Kit Rocha are going to continue stories in this universe, leaving these characters is the kind of bummer we’re all used to. That being

Rory is a Millennial Cautionary Tale (Spoilers)

I’m going to work under the assumption anyone who wanted to watch Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life has already done so. If you don’t fall into that group, and care about spoilers, you should stop reading now. I should also point out I have a different relationship with this show

Jenna Duffy is My Spirit Animal

I’ve been reading more comic books since my library got Hoopla. One I particularly enjoyed was Gotham City Sirens. It was kitschy and fun and focused on the relationship between three female friends. Basically, everything I want. It was also the comic that introduced me to Jenna Duffy, aka The Carpenter. The
