November’s Reader’s Choice

Blogging

Being back from the dead feels pretty good, well, the blogging dead, you know what I mean. October is Octover and now it's November, so this month I will bring back Reader's Choice! (Though I don't even know how many people I'll have left to actually vote on a book selection!) Since I've racked up too many books on my to-read shelf, I'm going to put a hold on buying…

September in Books + October to Read

Blogging, Book Reviews

September went by kind of quickly, or at least it seemed that way. It still doesn't feel like October here though. According to my father the difference in temperature between here and my hometown is around 30-40 degrees. Aka. It's in the low 60s and high 50s there and it still reaches into the low 90s here from time to time. Like, what? I'm still being delusional and wearing sweaters though because…

Books for Breakfast #82

Book Reviews

Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel & Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill I am a huge fan of stories that deal with the end of the world. Station Eleven does a very interesting take on it as well, with a deadly flu that wipes out about 99% of the world's population in nearly 48 hours. It follows the lives of a few different people before and after the collapse…

The read this time was: The Real Doctor will See you Now by Matt McCarthy I received this book for free from Blogging for Books, all opinions are my own. I like to read non-fiction from time to time, I have friends in med school, and the cover caught my attention with it's minimal flair.

Books for Breakfast #78

Book Reviews

The reads this time were: Akatsuki no Yona 17 by Mizuho Kusanagi & The Astronaut Wives Club by Lily Koppel I realized that while I read a lot of manga, I actually never review/talk about it on here at all, yet I do still read it and count it towards my total of books read for the year.

Book Reviews

The reads this time were: Ms. Marvel. Vol. 2: Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson & The Martian by Andy Weir I talked about the first volume a while back, and I finished up the second volume last month! I just really love this comic! I was never really that interested in the superhero comics, I liked more of the indie comics like Lumberjanes, that weren't really part of the…

My Book Rainbow

Book Reviews

I thought about doing this for a while, but then never actually got around to doing it! I wanted to do it way back when, but then I moved, things got frantic, there were adult things to get done, and I fell into a massive rut, which was more like a gorge. Now though, I'm back and ready to talk about books, travel, and my kinda-not-so-interesting life! Red - The…
