April Reads & Listens

April was a light month for reading. After my first physical read of the month, I struggled with what to read next, starting multiple books before finally settling on George R. R. Martin’s A Clash of Kings (which will probably take me a few months to get through…so my reads are going to be light …

March Reads & Listens

At one time, I used to keep track of everything I read or listened to. It was fun to compare months and years, to see what my reading trends were, and see how many reads I averaged. It was also a great way to remind myself of authors I’d enjoyed or series I’d started. However, …

Audiobook Reviews

Haven’t done one of these in awhile! Here are some quick reviews of some things I’ve listened to lately: Cinder/Scarlet – Marissa Meyer: I didn’t think I’d enjoy this series much because, while I like fairy-tale retellings, I’m not a big science fiction fan. After listening to Cinder, however, I found myself actually wanting to …

This collection of seven short stories all revolves around the idea of time suddenly and unexpectedly standing still. First of all, I have to say that I absolutely love the cover of this book.

Touched – Cyn Balog

Okay, so November is probably going to be a light month for blog posts, since my energy is all going towards NaNoWriMo! But that’s okay. I’ll do my best! For now, a review of Touched by Cyn Balog. Nick is cursed with the ability to see the future, which has led to most people thinking …

Picture Me Gone – Meg Rosoff

I don’t usually read books simply because of who writes them…even if I have previously enjoyed a work by a certain author, I need to have some interest in the actual story before I’ll read something else by them. However, if you know me, you’ll know that one of the few exceptions I have to …

Audition – Stasia Ward Kehoe

I stumbled across this book completely by accident, while I was testing our eBook service on one of the library’s tablets. I needed to download a title to make sure it worked, and this was the first thing I came across. It intrigued me, however, so I kept it checked out to my account, and …
