Book Review: “Wow, No Thank You” by Samantha Irby

I know I just previewed this book on Friday, but you also have to understand that at the pace I'm reading through books due to the Shelter-in-Place orders, I'm reading them way ahead of time and attempting to schedule things as best as I can. As mentioned Friday, this book is my April book from … Continue reading Book Review: “Wow, No Thank You” by Samantha Irby

First Impression Friday: “Wow, No Thank You” by Samantha Irby

This is my third (technically fourth, if we count The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires, but I'm not because it was a bonus book I bought and not one from the actual subscription) book from the Fantastic Stranglings Book Club, and I am very interested to see how it turns out. (Wow, that was … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Wow, No Thank You” by Samantha Irby

Book Review: “American Sherlock: Murder, Forensics, and the Birth of American CSI” by Kate Winkler Dawson

What's this? I'm actually posting a book review on my book blog? Say it ain't so! But yes. I've finished a book that's not Wheel of Time-related, and I can finally post another book review.

First Impression Friday: “The Eye of the Elephant” by Delia & Mark Owens

Welcome back to First Impression Friday, where I ramble on about the book I'm currently reading but have long since finished in the time it took me to schedule this post!

From GoodReads: After being … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “The Eye of the Elephant” by Delia & Mark Owens

First Impression Friday: “Cry of the Kalahari” by Mark & Delia Owens

Welcome back to First Impression Friday! This week, we're going with something non-fiction, Cry of the Kalahari. All the credit for this one belongs to my boyfriend, Steven. He described it as "these crazy scientists go out to the Kalahari desert by themselves and end up living with the lions and other animals." He explained that … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Cry of the Kalahari” by Mark & Delia Owens

First Impression Friday: “Irena’s Children” by Tilar J. Mazzeo

One of these days I'll get back on a regular posting schedule, I swear. Until that day comes, though, you're going to have some weeks where I post nothing and then some weeks where I post everything. I'm trying to get things under control. Ever had those times where the more you try to hold … Continue reading First Impression Friday: “Irena’s Children” by Tilar J. Mazzeo
