The Siege Winter – Book Review

The Siege Winter


I won this book through a Goodreads First Reads contest. Although a bit different from my normal taste these days, I was eager to sink into this historical fiction, a genre I don’t read as often as I’d like. I was not disappointed.

Stone and a Hard Place

It’s hard enough for Alastair Stone to keep his two lives—powerful mage and mundane Occult Studies professor—separate without an old friend asking him to take on a new apprentice. Especially after a university colleague wants him to investigate a massive old house for things that go bump in the night.

The Infinite Sea



I seriously loved The 5th Wave and I have been dying to read this since then. I can’t really say much about the plot as it will give way to much away but there are many MANY twists and turns and I loved it so much I can’t stop fangirling!

Hyperion – Book Review



I finished reading Hyperion on the plane back home. This again is a (1989) book I had not heard of until I saw it in the Gollancz 50 series (which delivers at a low price the “best” 50 books in science-fiction and fantasy, like Patrick Rothfuss’s The Name of the Wind and Gene Wolfe’s The Book of the New Sun. Its only drawback being a vivid and ugly yellow color! I don’t often read space opera sci-fi; however, this book is a masterpiece that completely deserves its inclusion in the Gollancz 50 series.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? – Book Review

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me


So, full disclosure: I’m a pretty big The Office fan, and I watch The Mindy Project. So, yeah, I like Mindy Kaling’s brand of humor. It’s sort of self-effacing in a girl power-ish kind of way. If you’re not familiar with her work, she’s basically a comedy screenwriter and actress who was on The Office and now has her own show. This book is her memoir-slash-autobiography written pre-Mindy Project, but post-the Office.

Clockwork Angel


This one was a tough pick for rating between 4.5 and 5. I’m not a big giver of 5 stars, so I had to really think about this one. And it was a hard choice, but my rating would go to 4.5 stars. That’s not to say that it was a bad story, it was amazing. Totally on my all-time faves. :)

Ahh, this was everything I expected it to be and more.

Everything, Everything is a story about Madeline, a girl who has SCID, meaning if she ever was to step outside her house, the unfiltered air, someone’s perfume, something normally edible for most people but she ingests could trigger symptomatic attacks that could potentially kill her.
