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

Stargirl

Title: Stargirl Author: Jerry Spinelli Published: 2000 I've had something of a thing for nostalgia lately. I've been picking up some books that I enjoyed reading as a kid. No, Stargirl is not one of those books. I was 20 years old when this book was first published. But its author, Jerry Spinelli, wrote one … Continue reading Stargirl

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Title: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Authors: J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne Published: 2016 I've purposely waited a couple weeks to write this. I actually finished reading this play some time ago. I wanted to make sure I was not just making a rash review of the thing. I really wanted to … Continue reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Cujo

Title: Cujo Author: Stephen King Published: 1981 I have a confession to make... A lot of the book reviews that I've been including on the blog are reviews that I had done on my previous blog. There are a lot of those old reviews that I've skipped because they're for books that I would like … Continue reading Cujo

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Title: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow Author: Washington Irving Published: 1820 This is a story I've heard and seen in probably a dozen different versions but never actually read. It's a classic and it's really not long at all. So when I looked for a free ebook that I could knock out pretty quickly, I … Continue reading The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Stories From a Teacher

Title: Stories From a Teacher Author: Jonathan Flores Published: 2012 Some time ago, I saw something on Facebook about BookBub. It's a service that provides information about free and discounted ebooks that are available. This encouraged me to sign up. Since then, I've downloaded dozens of free books to my Kindle. Stories From a Teacher … Continue reading Stories From a Teacher
