Monday Muse: On the Ledge.

December 29, 2014

Hey guys! I hope you had a wonderful holiday! I’ve been really absent from the blog for a while – and it’s only going to get worse! With New Years Eve and New Years Day happening this week, this is the only post you’re getting from me. And, when I have the baby (whenever THAT ends up being), I’ll be MIA for a while. I’m sure you guys will get an announcement, but I can’t promise you’ll get any articles of true substance. I’ll be sleep deprived after having a newborn, after all. My dad is also going to be in town for a couple of weeks to help me with the baby (assuming, of course, this baby shows up when he’s expected to and not really late). That will also put a damper on whether or not I’m posting, even if I don’t have the kid yet. Anyway, that’s all for the updates – here’s today’s Monday Muse! The […]

Book Review: The Blue Blazes

September 26, 2014

You know how I said I was going to try to read a book every month for the next year? Yeah, well, I’m not doing so great with that. Turns out, being pregnant takes a lot out of you and it’s hard to read when you’re sleeping instead. It’s also hard to read when you’re so busy with work that you’re working way more hours than you’d expected–and it was especially hard when I was still writing a blog a day. Anyway, I’m cutting myself a lot of slack because really, there’s no use in beating myself up over it. I have been reading a lot more than I had been, though, which is awesome, and the most recent book I finished was The Blue Blazes by Chuck Wendig. That’s right, folks. You’re getting a book review. The Blue Blazes Genre: Urban Fantasy Rating: 4 out of 5 stars How’s that for a book review layout, eh? I talked a […]

Book Review: Scar Night

October 20, 2013

You know how I talked about that book I’m reading on my Nook? Well, this was it. I actually picked up the second book in the Deepgate Codex series (Iron Angel) over a year ago on accident. You’d think I’d have learned that lesson by now, since the vast majority of books on fantasy shelves written by the same author are part of a series. Oops. Imagine how annoyed I was when I opened the cover at home only to see “…in this awesome sequel to…” Anyway, I went back to the bookstore seven or eight times only to find the second and third books in this series. I finally gave up and bought it on the Nook because I wanted to read it so badly. And then… it took me about eight months to get around to reading it. I’m awesome. I bet I could have found it in print by at LEAST July. Meh, I guess I got […]

Coldfire Trilogy Review

Book Review: The Coldfire Trilogy

August 26, 2013

I know I’m really behind in this one (these were published in the early 1990’s), but I just finished the final book of The Coldfire Trilogy by CS Friedman on my camping trip this last weekend. I originally picked up one of these books ten years ago, when my mom and I were visiting one of her teaching co-workers. He’d just lost his daughter in a car crash and had a bunch of her old books to relocate. This was one of them. Unfortunately, that book was the third part of the trilogy, and three pages in I realized that and put it down for the better part of a decade. I finally had the chance to buy all the books right at the beginning of 2012, and because I’m a really non-diligent reader, it took me this long to get through them all. Hey, when you’re writing your own book, you don’t read as much! Okay, I don’t read […]
