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 Life Coach

Update: The previous title of this post used the term “spirit animal” which is appropriative and not cool. I apologize to any who may have felt I was making light of their beliefs.  I’ve been reading more comic books since my library got Hoopla. One I particularly enjoyed was Gotham City Sirens.


Rewatching: The Office

When I’m doing things around the house, I like to rewatch some of my favorite sitcoms. Shows that I know well enough, and are simple enough, that I can drift in-and-out of easily. Right now, I’m in process of re-watching The Office, and I’ve noticed a few things I missed the first


5 On Friday: Five Books Worth a Listen

You guys know I read a lot. Heck, a good amount of my posts this year have been about books in some form or another. And while I enjoy traditional dead-tree book or eBook, I’ve gained a new appreciation for audio books as well. When I tell people this, they say something like


Book Review: David Bowie Retrospective and Coloring Book

As the adult coloring book trend reaches critical mass, there are coloring books for nearly everything. The David Bowie Retrospective and Coloring Book is the first one I’ve seen also claim to be a retrospective. And honestly, it’s a little disappointing on both fronts. As a Coloring Book Most of the adult


2016 Reading Challenge

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
