It’s a big week for me. I am a vendor at a large Star Wars event on Friday, so most of my energy has been been put into preparing for that. I have new Star Wars designs in the store, and will be adding more, so please take a look!
But I couldn’t resist when The Last Star ended up in the mail on my front porch. I just had to read this book. Continue reading “The Last Star by Rick Yancey (The 5th Wave Series, #3)”
No. No. And let me think, NO! This is not how I expected this review to be going at all. I was so excited for this book.
“For the winner of the game, there would be unimaginable power.
For the defeated, desolate oblivion.
The Crown’s Game was not one to lose.”
Funny because it seemed to me that Nikolai and Vika’s resolve to win the game lasted for all of two seconds! Continue reading “The Crown’s Game by Evelyn Skye”
“Everything looks like a painting: blue sky, white house, bright flowers.
How can the world look so perfect when I feel so broken?”
Isn’t that last sentence gorgeous?

“Citizens of Leratia be warned,” it read. “MAGIC IS RUNNING OUT! We are fast speeding towards a FUTURE without sorcery. Without HEALERS. Without a DEFENCE AGAINST INVADERS. Without MACHINES. The Society of Magical Preservation invites you to learn of this IMPENDING PERIL, and how it might be AVOIDED.”

Yesterday, I turned 24. It wasn’t a particularly notable birthday, at least not yet, as we took a red-eye flight home from our trip to Florida, which I’ll be writing about later. So I’ve decided to celebrate by taking you on a journey through my life as we recall my favorite books from infancy to now, and how they’ve shaped me into who I am today. Continue reading “24 Years of Books”
This book is being released tomorrow on May 10th, which is also my birthday! I’ve already bought some books as my birthday to myself. But other than that, I don’t know what to do to celebrate. I want to throw a party! Continue reading “The Vagrant by Peter Newman”
You know when you go back and watch a children’s movie as an adult, and you suddenly understand the content you didn’t grasp as a child, and now you have a whole new perspective on the film? I recently encountered this phenomenon upon rewatching Disney’s Pinocchio. Pinocchio was never one of my favorites of their films. However, it is a favorite of my youngest brother and my own son. Thus, the past couple weeks I’ve been watching Pinocchio with them. And I must say, my neutral opinion on the story is no more. I am more than perplexed by that movie.
In fact, I detest the film so much so that I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.

I’m not here typing this on this day. Today, I’m away from my computer, enjoying the pleasures of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Feel free to be jealous. I certainly would be if our circumstances were reversed.
Before I departed on my holiday to Florida though, I had the pleasure of finishing Love, Lies, and Spies by Cindy Anstey, and it was stupendous! I was feeling frustrated last month with the excessive amount of romance books I was reading. I don’t particularly enjoy the genre in general, and every book I read seemed to be oozing with silly, romantic fancies. If I’m going to read a romance novel though, then I want to read more like this one! Continue reading “Love, Lies, and Spies by Cindy Anstey”
Alright guys, I’m going to break character for a moment and apologize for being out of it this week. I thought I was going to finally be moving into an apartment. Our little family has been living with my parents for the last 10 months, and we’re ready to get out on our own. But it didn’t work out this time, and I was beyond disappointed. I rearranged my bookshelves though to help me regain a sense of control. Anyway, I promise to be better the rest of the week before I leave for Harry Potterland next week! Hooray!
Okay, and scene! Continue reading “Fire Girl: A Tale of Witches and Wolves by Andy Mulberry”
