Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I’ll be honest with you, I have been putting off writing this book review for a while. I’ve had many mixed feelings towards this YA-novel, and needed time to put my thoughts in order. Whether my opinions are in order yet, I’m not sure, but I will try to give you the best review I…

Warcross by Marie Lu

As best selling author Marie Lu’s new book approached its September release this year there was a staggering amount of ARC reviews. I can confidently say that I have never seen that many ARC’s released during my blogging career. Maybe what stood out was how positive every review was. Lu has been one of the…

Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

I have read an insane amount of positive reviews on Illuminae and its sequel, Gemina.  It almost feels like I am the last book blogger to hop on this train.  What took me so long?  I have no idea.  One of the biggest appeals for these books is their unique structure.  Unique book design is…

Alexandra’s Top 5 at Age 5

Last year, on this day in particular, I started a special series to commemorate the special birthdays in our home.  Well, we’ve gone full circle.  Today our beautiful, energetic, often crazy daughter hits the half a decade mark.  5 years old sounds so much older than 4, I mean the girl starts kindergarten this year!…

Waking Gods by Sylvain Neuvel

Giant Robots from space! Now that I have your attention let me tell you about an amazing book that will give you all your giant robot needs.  Well, first I should direct you to a review of its predecessor, the unforgettable premiere novel by Sylvain Neuvel, Sleeping Giants.  If you have not read that book- what…

Sixth of the Dusk by Brandon Sanderson

I warned you.  As I catch up on any and all the Brandon Sanderson I can get my onion-y hands on, there is going to be a lot of reviews featuring the author.  Last week I wrapped up my look at The Reckoners series with two reviews, Mitosis and Calamity.  Now, the G.O.B. is closing in on talking about all…

Calamity by Brandon Sanderson

The Reckoners series was just what I needed, at the right time.  After a bit of a reading slump to kick off ‘017, diving into Steelheart reinvigorated my need to read.  I savoured it all, taking my time, and reading a few other books and stories simultaneously.  Over the last year I have tried to…

Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson

​I may be going a tad out of order with this review, having done reviews for Steelheart and Firefight.  Recently I purchased a new eReader, a Kobo Aura One, it’s spectacular.  Along with such I was able to get a bundle of Brandon Sanderson short stories/novellas that were not included in November’s Ars Arcanum release.  Basically, I have…

Firefight by Brandon Sanderson

I recently consumed and reviewed book one of the Reckoners Series, Steelheart.  Usually I try to mix things up and will not read the same author back to back.  When it comes to a Sanderson series though, there is a sense that no matter what other book I pick up all I will be able to…

Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson

I kicked 2017 off with a bit of a reading slump.  Stemming from one hard-to-read, disappointing novel out of the ol’ TBR, the aftermath was a struggle to reinvigorate the need to read. I searched for methods to combat it, like rereading major favourite, Ready Player One, which worked temporarily.  But, going on an adventure…

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll

“But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.” “How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice. “You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.” Welcome to Wonderland Week, a whole wingding for…
