Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo & Death and the Afterlife by Clifford A. Pickover I had heard good things about this book, but the real selling point for me was how downright ominous the book itself looked as a hardback. I NEEDED it on my shelf! Little did I know how intensely I'd fall into the series.... The book takes place in the same world that Bardugo's other series…

Book Reviews

Been wondering if I should change the titles of this series and stop counting it, once I passed 100, it started to feel a little silly. What do you think? Maybe I should call it "Books for Breakfast - Title of book(s)" instead? Ms. Marvel Vol. 3 by G. Willow Wilson & Lullaby by Check Palahniuk I haven't read a bound volume in a while, and I had nearly completely forgotten…

Wedding Convention (WW#6)


I had a post on Monday that was going to be about coffee table books, but then I got home from a weekend of camping, hiking mountains, and having no wifi/cell service, and just didn't have it in me to complete that post, so instead, here we are on Wednesday with a post about a Wedding Convention I attended back in October with my mom! Now, I admit, I probably…

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K Rowling, John Tiffany, Jack Thorne & Glass Sword by Victoria Aveyard It's taken me a lot longer than I'd like to admit to read this book. I heard a lot of negative  reviews about it, which was kind of off-putting, when I hear bad things about a book, I can't help but think that the book must be bad, and I go into it…

By Design – Cat Illustration Collection


Back when I was still in art school, we had a project that explored creating images with different media/styles using the same animal. I of course went with a cat. To date, this is probably my best illustration collection and I love all of them turned out (sans the painted one, which I haven't shown here cause it isn't my best.) The pencil and ink works were my favorites. I…

Prepping for NaNoWriMo


I've been doing NaNoWriMo for quite a while now. I started when I was back in college as a sophomore and that first year was the only year I actually completed the challenge. A bunch of unfinished novels later, here I am, prepping for another year of literary struggle! I was debating between re-working/finishing an older NaNoWriMo novel that I recently fell back in love with, or writing something new…

The Madd Addam Trilogy by Margaret Atwood I read Oryx and Crake quite a while ago, since it was one of Alex's favorite books. At the time he also had never read the entire trilogy either, only the first book, so I too, only read the first book. Recently, he decided that it was finally time and read the second and third book, bemoaning that he didn't re-read the first…

Haunted House Stories

Life, Local Flavor

As Halloween steadily approaches, I figure I'll share some spooky stories. I'll start with one of my favorite clown-related stories (since all this nonsense with clowns has been happening in real life, not in haunted houses) Back in my junior year (I think) of high school, I was drafted for a trip to Ohio to visit a haunted house, well, actually it was five haunted houses all on the same…

Top 10 Horror Books

Book Reviews

Horror is one of my favorite genres all around. I love horror manga, I love horror books, I love ghost stories by camp fires, I love horror movies, I love haunted houses, and I love people telling me creepy true stories about their own encounters. Basically, I love all things haunted and creepy. So I'm going to talk about my top 10 horror books (in no particular order) to celebrate…

The Wolf Road by Beth Lewis I received this book for free from Blogging for Books, all opinions are my own.  This is a perfect read for October! When I saw the cover on Blogging for Books, it caught my eye and looked like something that would put me on edge. While it isn't outright horror, it is still scary. The story follows a girl named Elka as she runs…
