  I always forget how much I like this series?  I think I’ve read So You Want To Be A Wizard three times over the years… and even though I have Deep Wizardry, I haven’t read it yet – oops!  It’s definitely not a reflection on Diane Duane, though.  This is a charming little book and I like so much. Even though So You Want To Be a Wizard is older YA (and reads younger) it’s still very accessible to adults and I appreciate that the characters behave appropriate their age group.  I just adore Nita and Kit and of course Fred who is […]

10 Characters Who are Way Cool & I’d Like To Be

One of the things that I love about reading is how easy it is to get sucked into a story, as if you were really there.  When he world around you gets tough – whether it’s at a global level or just your own bubble – it’s nice to be able to escape somewhere.  I’m sure that the characters in the books may not agree, considering all their misfortunes… but sometimes, I wish I could step into their shoes for just a day. Here’s a few people who tempt me!              Thursday Next The Eyre Affair […]

Well my dears, it’s here! October has packed her bags and gotten away from me again.  Every year I feel like I’m chasing the autumnal delights of this month, and I just can’t keep up with it!  It’s my favorite time of year, but it’s also one of the busiest times of year, and it just slips away.  I come out at the end panting like it’s been a marathon but the loot was well worth it!  The leaves are off the trees, the air is getting crisp… winter is just around the corner. This Month’s Haul Well this month was actually […]

BAM! POW! ZAP! Insta-Reads from Buzzwords – #Top5Tuesdays

Posted August 8, 2017 in Memes // 20 Comments

Good morning my sweet centaurs! I bounced back and forth about whether or not I was going to participate in this week’s top five, as buzzwords aren’t really my thing.  When I think buzzwords, I think phrases like “wildly popular” and “long-anticipated” etc. etc.  Then I decided, ANY word can be a buzz word if it gives me that warm, bumblebee feeling in my bones. As always, Top 5 Tuesdays are hosted by Shanah @ The Bionic Bookworm, and her prompt is: Top 5 buzzwords that make me want to read a book.   Pirate I am a sucker for […]

February Round Up!

February Round Up!

Posted March 1, 2017 in Checking In // 8 Comments

Well folks, that’s two months down, ten more to go.  How’s the TBR pile going? February was a pretty bookish month for me, both regarding the incoming and the outgoing novels!  Firstly, I received my first ARC-for-review in February! Drawn Away by Holly Bennett One minute Jack’s in math class. The next, he’s on a dark, cobblestoned, empty street. Empty, that is, except for a skinny girl wrapped in a threadbare shawl. “Matches, mister?” she asks, and just like that, Jack’s life collides with one of Hans Christian Andersen’s grimmest tales. And just when he has almost convinced himself it […]
