I am not okay with the way this book ended. Okay, so, I know it’s the first book in the trilogy, and maybe I went ahead and read a few reviews of the next two books, but that doesn’t change the way the ended wrenched my heart into teeny tiny pieces. I’m not over it yet.  I finished the book last week and I’m still outraged.  How dare you manipulate my heart like that, Mira Grant.  What’s interesting to me is that I didn’t realize quite how much I had been enjoying the characters until they were gone?  That, mes amis, is excellent, subtle […]

  Everything about Ready Player One is right for me. I’m a huge pop culture fan, so this book is one whole Easter Egg.  Add to that the world of the OASIS, which built to the greatest scope of of the imagination.  Imagine being able to build a character and step into that skin.  To create planets of your own.  To interact with people from all over the world and follow storylines of your favorite books and movies in an immersive world.  Add to the mix a group of incredible characters who are real and relatable, and you have a great […]

  Serendipity Jones, y’all. My goodness, I loved this girl. Full disclosure?  Gunslinger Girl was preordered about two days before release, and it’s been sitting on my shelf every since.  I’ve been eyeing it with doubt and suspicion for two months until I picked it up last week thinking “might as well get this over with”. I am a fool. I wish I had read this book two months ago.  Heavens, I wish I had received an ARC.  Pity and Max and Luster and the whole gang were exactly what I needed right now in my unenthusiastic reading drudge.  I mean, for […]
