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

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

It’s a bit early to go through what I read this year, it is only November, but I’ve hit my reading challenge for the year so now seems as good a time as any! Over the course of the year I read 54 books, two of which I did not finish (God’s Eye

Book Review: Weapons Of Math Destruction

Algorithms are everywhere in our lives. And while I can appreciate the way they can make life easier, they’ve also always made me somewhat uncomfortable. Not just in the “invasion of privacy” way either, although that is certainly a concern. In her book Weapons of Math Destruction, data scientist Cathy O’Neil (aka the

Book Review: Dark Matter

Dark Matter is another book I requested for review thanks to Haley over at I Lay Reading. And much like Haley, I’m having trouble trying to write a review for this book without posting spoilers. So this review is a short one. Dark Matter opens with physics professor Jason Dessen being kidnapped, injected with something, and

Book Review: Party of One

When I saw Party of One on the Blogging for Books “available for request” page, I became intrigued. Like most people who were teenagers in the early 00’s, I spent my after school hours glued to MTV and Total Request Live. Most of the time, Carson Daly hosted the show. But every once in a while,
