The Reader Confession Book Tag

Dang, is it Thursday already? That means it's time for a book tag! I found this one on Shanah's blog, because I'm a stalker and shouldn't be left alone with time to spare. 1 – HAVE YOU EVER DAMAGED A BOOK? I've put a book through the washing machine once. (I am the Ice Worm, … Continue reading The Reader Confession Book Tag

Top 5 Science Fiction

Here we go again with Top 5 Tuesdays, after a small hiatus this weekend to get my head back in order! As always, we're hosted by Shanah @ Bionic Book Worm. I haven't always been the biggest fan of science fiction, but something about that changed just a few years ago, probably when I started … Continue reading Top 5 Science Fiction

ENG 590: “Wampeters, Foma + Granfalloons”

This is a collection of Kurt Vonnegut's speeches and essays, all collected under the title Wampeters, Foma & Granfalloons, which are three words from Cat's Cradle that Vonnegut invented. This is a particularly tricky book to talk about, because I'm so far removed from it that I don't really remember everything I read. I will talk about … Continue reading ENG 590: “Wampeters, Foma + Granfalloons”

First Impression Friday – “Jonathon Strange & Mr. Norrell” by Susanna Clarke

This book is a bit older than the other two I've previewed so far. It was written in 2004.

This is one of my boyfriend's favorite books, and while waiting for him last … Continue reading First Impression Friday – “Jonathon Strange & Mr. Norrell” by Susanna Clarke

Recipe Review – Old Fashioned Chocolate Pie

This is a pie I encountered from my cousin June, who brought two of them to my grandfather's wake back in January. My sister and I ate a whole pie between us that night. This is a recipe you'll want to make as often as you can, and considering how easy it just might. … Continue reading Recipe Review – Old Fashioned Chocolate Pie

Top 5 Last Lines

Good morning and welcome to this week's edition of Top 5 Tuesday! Last week was a ton of fun, and this week promises to almost one-up it. The only rule for this week's list was "No spoilers," which I think should be relatively easy to follow. Let's see, then. As always, we're hosted by Shanah … Continue reading Top 5 Last Lines

Book Review – “The Nest” by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

If you'll remember from Friday, this is a book I was predicting a 3.5 - 4 star review. I've had a lot of time recently to listen to it, and I've finally finished it. First of all, my initial prediction thoughts seem to have been spot-on. This is a book about a dysfunctional family, and … Continue reading Book Review – “The Nest” by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney
