First Impression Friday: “The House in the Cerulean Sea” by T.J. Klune

I've been on the waiting list for this book at my local library since February, and it finally came in this past weekend. At this point, much like many of the other books I've been on the waiting list for months for, I've completely forgotten everything about it but remembered I put it on the … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The House in the Cerulean Sea” by T.J. Klune

Book Review: Project Hail Mary” by Andy Weir

I basically ignored everything else in my life to finish this book the same day that I started it because it was that good. Project Hail Mary is everything I loved about The Martian, only better. I borrowed it from the library, but the moment it's available in paperback I will be buying it to … Continue reading Book Review: Project Hail Mary” by Andy Weir

Three DNFs: “A Discovery of Witches,” “The Midnight Library,” and “The Great Circle”

I don't think I've DNF'd three books back to back before (or if I have, it hasn't been in recent memory), but there was just something about A Discovery of Witches, The Midnight Library, and The Great Circle that I couldn't get through. I did a First Impression Friday for A Discovery of Witches, which … Continue reading Three DNFs: “A Discovery of Witches,” “The Midnight Library,” and “The Great Circle”

First Impression Friday: “Ready Player Two” by Ernest Cline

Ready Player One was one of my favorite books when I first discovered it a few years ago - and then I read back through it a few years later and realized that it was actually incredibly misogynistic and the only reason people liked it is because of the insane amount of 80s references that … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Ready Player Two” by Ernest Cline

Book Review: “While Justice Sleeps” by Stacey Abrams

While I was hoping to enjoy this novel, I think it ended up being just a bunch of fluff filled with important-sounding jargon. I work in a law office (well, in real estate, but I still know a lot of legalese), and I was confused. The ending of the book takes place in a court … Continue reading Book Review: “While Justice Sleeps” by Stacey Abrams

First Impression Friday: “A Discovery of Witches” by Deborah Harkness

I'm really not sure why I decided to put this book on my holds list at the library, but I do know that I started reading it only two days before it was due to be returned (it's got a hold list so I can't check it out again). From GoodReads: Deep in the stacks … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “A Discovery of Witches” by Deborah Harkness
