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,

Book Review: He Wanted The Moon

Haley from I Lay Reading recommended He Wanted the Moon by Mimi Baird to me, and from the time I started to read it was clear why. He Wanted the Moon is part scientific narrative and part memoir. (Both are types of non-fiction I thoroughly enjoy.) The book chronicles part of the time

Turns Out, I’m A CD Collector

A couple of years ago, I bought a turntable and rediscovered a love of music. The vinyl medium made me sit and listen to an entire record, in a way I hadn’t done since I was in high school. This was the reason, along with realizing how much money I’d spent on

Book Review: The Fold

I feel I’ve said it time and time again when I write a science fiction book review, but I am so happy to be reading something that doesn’t take place in a dystopian society. Don’t get me wrong, I love those stories. But so much of sci-fi is that anymore, that something

Game Review: Futurama: Game Of Drones

Book Review: Girls To The Front

  Author note: Sometimes I start a blog post and then forget about it for a while. That’s what has happened here. I actually read Girls to the Front a year ago, started the review, and forgot about it until I started looking through my “post ideas” folder on Google Drive! Oh,

Book Review: Countdown to Zero Day

I’ve had a review copy of Countdown to Zero Day sitting on my shelf for several months now. When I first requested it, I was excited because it’s not everyday a book recommended to you by a friend ends up on an “available for review list.” (Aaron, who wrote about IoT security

Defending the Man of Steel

  I recently re-watched Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel because it was New Year’s Eve, my wife was asleep, and I wanted to see if my opinion of it shortly after it came out (in which I rather liked it) held up. It did. Oh, sure, a few of the Marvel-verse movies

Nicole’s 5 Favorite Books of 2015

It’s that time of year again, the time where we start reflecting and making lists. And book lists are my favorite lists to share with you. But I’ve always felt so much pressure to limit my list to books published this year. No more! Instead, I’ve decided to make this a list
