2017 Green Onion Awards

Welcome to the second annual Green Onion Awards! Also known as The Onions! Recipients of these awards neither care nor know that they won but, that won’t stop me. The Onions are prestigious in my mind. The votes (my vote) are in for the best of 2017, and it is time to announce the year’s…

5 Must See November ‘017 Movies

This is a big month for the box office. Currently dominating the month’s opening weekend records are major franchises Hunger Games, Twilight, and Harry Potter, accounting for 9 of the top 10 money makers. There are at least two films that can make a push for top spot. Despite the great month of film ahead,…

Green Onion Birthday Top 5

It is my birthday! And, apparently the world does not recognize it as a holiday… The family is off to school. I have to work. It is just another day. But, I decided to stop and celebrate with you. My real friends. My digital friends who I don’t have to meet in person, or get…

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…

Sunday Mise en Place (Mar. 27 to Apr. 2, ‘017)

Happy Sunday, and happy April.  It is hard to believe we are already a quarter way through ‘017.  Going too fast.  Either way, glad to be through the tough cold months that start the year and into spring.  With that I offer a warm welcome to the Sunday Mise en Place, where everything with me…
