Goodreads TBR Declutter #26

In this installment of the TBR Declutter, I'm revisiting a book (*cough* The Name of the Wind *cough*) that was in a prior TBR Declutter post. I've since learned more about the author and have changed my mind about this book. So that will be interesting. Especially as many of my blog readers gave that book a 5 star… Continue reading Goodreads TBR Declutter #26

Friday Reads: September 2019 Wrap-Up

Happy October! Now that September is over, it's very definitely fall and the start of the holiday season. It's time for spiced lattes (chai lattes, yum) and pumpkin pie and roast turkey and quite possibly a cozy mystery binge. Or maybe a few horror stories instead (if I can get the nerve to read them).… Continue reading Friday Reads: September 2019 Wrap-Up

First Line Friday 56 – Reaper Man

Let's do a Discworld First Line Friday 56 today, shall we? Just for fun. And also in honor of the 2019 Discworld Read-A-Long that I've so far managed to continue hosting. Semi-successfully. “First Line Fridays” is hosted over at Hoarding Books and is all about the first line of current read. A good companion meme is the… Continue reading First Line Friday 56 – Reaper Man

Friday Reads: the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge Update

A while back, I posted about the 2019 POPSUGAR Reading Challenge and included a list of how far I'd gotten at that point. (I had completed 18 of the prompts.) The entire list of 40 (or 50) prompts can be found here. I am just doing this for fun. I don't actually care if I… Continue reading Friday Reads: the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge Update

Five 5-Star Books with Under 100 Goodreads Ratings

Louise @ Foxes & Fairy tales has been doing a series of 5-star reads with low numbers of Goodreads ratings, and I thought it was a good time for me to revisit my own 5-star reads with minimal love on GR. I've done a similar Top Ten Tuesday post to this before, but that one… Continue reading Five 5-Star Books with Under 100 Goodreads Ratings

Mini Book Reviews (Seasons of Glass and Iron, Gods of Jade and Shadow)

Just a quick post with some mini-reviews to add to today, because I loved both of these stories (one a novel, one a short story) and wanted to share my love for them with you now rather than waiting for a day without a scheduled post. Also, I thought the two titles played nicely off… Continue reading Mini Book Reviews (Seasons of Glass and Iron, Gods of Jade and Shadow)

Read a Thin Book: Rogue Protocol (Murderbot Diaries #3) by Martha Wells ~ read 8/17/19 ~ I… Continue reading Friday Reads: August 2019 Wrap-Up

First Line Friday 56 – The Name of the Rose

It's been longer than I like since I've joined in on the Friday 56, so here's a clip from one of the books I'm reading now! I want to try to get back to doing these more often, but no promises... “First Line Fridays” is hosted over at Hoarding Books and is all about the first line… Continue reading First Line Friday 56 – The Name of the Rose

Mini Book Reviews (Nimona, Artificial Condition, Atmosphæra Incognita, The Black God’s Drums)

More mini-reviews today, yay! Nimona by Noelle Stevenson Really cute graphic novel that takes the traditional sword-and-sorcery themes and turns them on their head. There's also a quite unique blend of magic and science. It's really rare to see laser guns and swords being used at the same time, and I don't think I've ever… Continue reading Mini Book Reviews (Nimona, Artificial Condition, Atmosphæra Incognita, The Black God’s Drums)
