I'm 34, and I'm in northwest Louisiana. I work in a library, am married, and have two cats and quite possibly the cutest black lab ever. I am also a staunch believer in the Oxford comma. I like to read books, cook, and occasionally play one of the various Zelda incarnations.

2022 Book #2: Bewilderment

I appear to have an unpopular opinion on this one. It has a 4.04-star rating on Goodreads, and I gave it 2. I’m surprised on a few levels. I put a hold on Bewilderment as soon as I heard about it solely because of its author, Richard Powers...

2022 Book #1: The Secret History

Here we are on January 3rd, and I’ve finished my first book of the year. I actually started reading it on December 28th, but it’s still a super quick read for me, as The Secret History is quite a chonk of a book. The Secret History is...

Let’s talk about goals

Happy 2022! I love recycling this image from 2011. It was a winner. So. Goals. To start with, I joined the Goodreads 2022 Reading Challenge with a goal of 50 books. Last year was the first year I didn’t join since I started in 2011. Somehow...

2021: The Year in Books

2021 has seemed endless, but here we are. Here’s the meme of the moment: This image baffles me. Bernie and his mittens at Biden’s inauguration seems like it was years ago. I guess plague years seem the longest. I didn’t read much...

2021 Book #26: Cloud Cuckoo Land

Yep. I’m back. And I mean it this time. Here’s a review as proof. It’s only #26 for the year, according to Goodreads, which, with the exception of last year, is pretty low for me. I’m going to change that in 2022 because I...

2016 Book #1: The 5th Wave

This is what happens when I see a pretty disaster pr0n movie trailer and think I’ll like the book because of it. Okay, it’s not terrible: it’s run-of-the-mill post-apocalyptic YA. You know what to expect. In my defense, I...

2015: The Year in Books

2015 has been an interesting year. I’ve been really busy, mostly because of dogs. That and an extended foray into Minecraft from which I only recently returned. Books were on the back burner this year. I only blogged about fifteen of them, but...

2015 Book #15/42: Slade House

I can’t end this year without talking about Slade House, David Mitchell‘s latest novel. It’s been out for a few months, but I just managed to get my hands on it and devour it. But first (and briefly), I’ll explain the...

I’m baaaaaack!

See, I told you I’d eventually come to my senses. After taking off a little more than 6 months, I’m bringing the blog back. Why, you ask? Because it’s (about to be) a new year – and all I have to do is work, raise a puppy...

I’m putting this blog on hiatus.

Yep. After several years of posts and five of almost weekly posts, I’m stopping for a while. It’s not fun anymore. I’m tired of having to come up with something to say about every book I read to make sure I hit the fifty reviews...
