My (Everlasting) Quest to Catch Up on Review Books. Let’s Discuss.

My (Everlasting) Quest to Catch Up on Review Books. Let’s Discuss.

I know I’m not alone when I say I’m behind on books I have for review. Sometimes it’s because my eyes were bigger than my … eyes? (Yeah, that metaphor doesn’t work for books the way it works for food.) Or sometimes it’s because a book that I really wanted to read somehow lost its luster along the way and I wasn’t excited about it anymore. For whatever reason, not every book I have for […]

Navigating the Stars by Maria V. Snyder: Review & Giveaway

KINDLE VERSION Navigating the Stars is about Terra Cotta Warriors in space. Sound weird? It is a little, but it’s also really enjoyable. What Fed My Addiction: Sci-fi that’s in-depth without being confusing. There’s a decent amount of science in this fiction, but I never felt overwhelmed or bombarded with facts. There are some basic things about the world that you have to understand—for instance, the fact that space travel essentially causes time travel and the […]

Briggs Book Tag

Briggs Book Tag

I saw this over at It Starts at Midnight about a month ago (and a couple other places as well) and thought it would be a fun tag to try. The tag originated at Jaded Reader. In case you’re not familiar with it, here’s some info on Myers Briggs  (and the test, if you want to try it out yourself). I’ve taken this test a few times in the past, and I always come out very borderline […]
