Movie Review: Ready Player One

It is no secret that I am a fan of the incredible novel Ready Player One by Ernest Cline.  In fact, you could call me a super fan.  Not only did I give the book a perfect score in my review two years ago, but it has also made its place to my list of…

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…

The Nintendo Book Tag

I was tagged by the amazing ZezeewithBooks to do this special book tag.  The Nintendo tag sounds like too much fun.  I tend to not be a ‘gamer’ but I do love some classic Mario and Zelda games.  My house was always a Nintendo house and we had each console released growing up.  When the Super Nintendo…

Pokemon Go; a.k.a. Data Destroyer

Pokemon Go dropped into our laps last week and it is becoming quite the phenomenon.  Numbers reaching higher than Twitter, everyone wants to catch this game.  On the streets, you can see 20-30 somethings sitting in front of churches buried in their phones, clearly not looking for Jesus.  And oh the memes!  Hilarity has ensued…

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

I am shaken up over how much I loved this book.  Ready Player One had everything I want out of a good book and so much more.  I cannot find the words to describe the nerd-gasm I had reading this novel.  Easily slotting its way into my favorite book high scores. The basis being an…
