Book 8: Born a Crime by Trevor Noah

Born a Crime fulfills the “A Book Where the Author is from Asia, Africa, or South America” category of the PopSugar 2019 Reading Challenge. I think I double-dipped on this list item. I read Trevor’s book and also My Sister, the Serial Killer, both authors being from Africa. But it’s all good. The perspective shift …

Book 7: Still Life by Louise Penny

This book fulfills the Favorite Prompt from 2018 on the PopSugar 2019 Reading Challenge. That prompt was Audio Book. Honestly, I’ve read most of the books on the blog as audio. I love audio. Love is the theme for this blog post because I love reading. Anyway… I’m a cozy mystery junkie. I love to …

Book 6 Planet of the Damned by Harry Harrison

Book 6 Planet of the Damned by Harry Harrison This book fulfills the Author with the Same First and Last Initial requirement on the PopSugar 2019 reading challenge. Old school Sci-Fi and I are not friends. Well, not good friends. We get along pretty well, but we have some varying opinions. Sometimes we have to …

Book 5 The Dark Prophesy, Trials of Apollo

Book 5 The Dark Prophesy, The Trials of Apollo Book 2 by Rick Riordan This book fulfills the Book with an Imaginary or Excinct creature category on the PopSugar 2019 Reading Challenge. So, I’m seeing the error of my ways in reviewing the second book in a series of four or more. (Rick Riordan hasn’t …

Book 4 All Systems Red

All Systems Red by Martha Wells made me happy. This story fulfilled the “Book Set in Space” category of the PopSugar challenge. I read it in a day. (It’s a novella or the first fourth of a novel.) I read a great deal, but I read slow. Like a turtle’s pace. I use audiobooks to …

April Books Preview

Hey all. Double post so that I can get this silly info posts over with. I totally over-read in January, February, and March. I’m still posting blogs for books I read back then. (Because I’m a slacker and keep forgetting to put up the blog posts. Hey, I’m new. LOL.)   This month I’ll be …

An Interlude

Hey all. So I’m looking at my list of blog posts—those that I’ve written and the list of To-do. At this point, I should mention that I’m a very eclectic reader. VERY. In the past, I’ve stuck to one genre for years before tumbling into another and getting stuck there. Lately, I’ve been trying to …

Book 3 The Red Queen

I need to qualify this blog post before chucking it out there. First, SPOILERS. This review has wicked spoilers. I can’t not say the things. Second, as an author and a decent human being, I never want to trash another writer’s work. I never want to say that their hard work and determination to get …

Book 2 Anne of Green Gables

Hey everybody. My second book for the pop sugar challenge was Anne of Green Gables. It filled the “Book that Makes Me Feel Nostalgic” challenge. I can’t believe I never read the book before. I’ve noticed it on a dozen challenge lists. Not to mention, all my childhood friends read it in elementary school. I …

Book 1 New Attitude by Kathyrn R. Biel

I had the divine pleasure of reading New Attitude by Kathryn R. Biel recently. This book fulfilled the “Book I Mean to Read Last Year” challenge for PopSugar. (Sorry, Kathryn.) I’ve read several of her books previously so I’m totally biased. My favorite of Kathryn’s books tie between Live for This and Made for Me. …
