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

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

No, I Didn’t Go See Fireworks Tonight

To all of my fellow Americans, happy Independence Day! If fireworks are your thing, I hope you are having a lovely evening watching all those explosions in the sky. Personally, I'm just as content sitting at home reading or watching a movie or obsessing over the Big Brother live feeds. It's not that I actively … Continue reading No, I Didn’t Go See Fireworks Tonight

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

I Cannot Trust My Own Ears

I very rarely listen to the radio. In my long drives to and from work, I'm usually listening to audio books to fill the time. When I feel like listening to music as I'm driving around town, it's courtesy of my iPod and all the music that I know I'll want to listen to. If … Continue reading I Cannot Trust My Own Ears

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

Treasure Island

Title: Treasure Island Author: Robert Louis Stevenson Published: 1883 For a very long time, I've steered clear of books that are considered classic literature. In most cases, I'm sure it's out of a fear that somehow my 11th grade American Lit. teacher will appear from nowhere and expect me to write an exhaustive paper on … Continue reading Treasure Island
