The Highway

The Highway C.J. Box 2013 Maybe it was a mistake for me to watch the first season of ABC's Big Sky. Most of that first season is based on this particular book. While there are some definite differences between the novel and the TV series, all of the major plot points are there. And I … Continue reading The Highway

Back of Beyond

Back of Beyond C.J. Box 2011 The ABC series Big Sky was probably my favorite new show of the 2020-2021 television season. I'm sure that's not saying much because I really don't make much time for network TV these days. I have a tendency to wait until the end of a season then binge everything … Continue reading Back of Beyond

Star Wars: Light of the Jedi

Star Wars: Light of the Jedi Charles Soule 2021 I was mostly excited to have Star Wars content that had nothing to do with Skywalkers or Palpatines. I'm so glad that the creators behind the galaxy far, far away are finally willing to dive into an era of this galaxy's fictional history that has never … Continue reading Star Wars: Light of the Jedi

Catwoman: Soulstealer

Catwoman: Soulstealer Sarah J. Maas 2018 So far I've read three of the DC Icons book series: Batman-Nightcrawler; Wonder Woman-Warbringer; and now this. So far, I've really enjoyed all three. I still have one to go with Superman-Dawnbreaker, which I already own. But like so many books on my bookshelf, I just haven't gotten around … Continue reading Catwoman: Soulstealer

Ready Player Two

Ready Player Two Ernest Cline 2020 I absolutely LOVED Ready Player One. I enjoyed it so much that, after reading through it once, I downloaded the audiobook to let Wil Wheaton read it to me again. And it was fantastic. And I was thrilled to know that Ernest Cline had a sequel in the works. … Continue reading Ready Player Two

Fictional Bucket List

Ashley did this over on her blog yesterday and I thought it was an awesome idea. And, if you know me, I'm always looking for good post ideas that I can steal. Actually, I asked permission to do the same thing on my blog, which she so graciously gave. So thanks, Ashley! So the idea … Continue reading Fictional Bucket List

The Eyes of the Dragon

The Eyes of the Dragon Stephen King 1987 Slowly making my way through Stephen King's bibliography, I've come to The Eyes of the Dragon. In reality, I should have read it some time ago since I'm trying to accomplish this feat by reading novels in the order in which they were originally published. When I … Continue reading The Eyes of the Dragon

20 Years with Harry Potter

This morning, I was perusing the old Twitter feed and came across this tweet from J.K. Rowling... 20 years ago? How can that be? I guess it makes sense. I graduated from Hogwarts high school 20 years ago. And according to J.K.'s timeline, the Battle of Hogwarts happened in 1998. Harry Potter and I are … Continue reading 20 Years with Harry Potter

Batman: Nightwalker

Title: Batman: Nightwalker Author: Marie Lu Published: 2018 I'm a comic geek at heart. Specifically, I'm a DC Comics geek. So whenever there's something new and interesting about DC's iconic characters, in any medium, I'm all over it. I actually didn't know this book existed until I came across it at the library recently. I … Continue reading Batman: Nightwalker

The End of Oz

I realize I never wrote my thoughts regarding any of the previous books in the Dorothy Must Die series of novels. With The End of Oz being the fourth and (presumably) final book in the series, I think it's safe to say I enjoyed them. Please, do yourself a favor and read them before picking … Continue reading The End of Oz
