Book Breakdown: Daughter of Smoke and Bone

I haven't done one of these in awhile, mainly because I'm now an "official" reviewer for Fresh Fiction (bomb diggity!). What that means for you is you'll have to go there for my more timely reviews. I'll see if I can keep this up (I'm working two and a half jobs, so cut me a… Continue reading Book Breakdown: Daughter of Smoke and Bone

Book Breakdown: Little Brother

Do you ever feel like someone is watching you? I’m talking about something more frightening than lolcats (not that lolcats aren’t terrifying)… Anyway, thanks to Cory Doctorow, I’ve spent the last two days in a state of look-over-the-shoulder paranoia.

Besides obsessively… Continue reading Books, GoodReads, and Why I’m Still Awake

You know, and maybe some other stuff, but it was mostly the roads. I’ve been hunting the shelves for the past couple months. I’m actually very… Continue reading Book Breakdown: Mistwood

Your vampires go out in sunlight? I’m cool with that. Your vampires are fat? I’m cool with that. Your vampires actually suck… Continue reading Book Breakdown: Throat

Book Breakdown: Oh. My. Gods.

In preparation for Memorial Day Weekend, I went to that wondrous place where dreams come true. The library. (We kindly request that the audience hold all nerd jokes until the conclusion of the performance) I sort of got carried away. Twelve books later, I decided that maybe, perhaps, I could get rid of two. So, one down,… Continue reading Book Breakdown: Oh. My. Gods.
