Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Non-Fantasy Books
Top Ten Tuesday / June 4, 2019

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme by That Artsy Reader Girl.This feature gives a weekly Top Ten list. We all love lists, right? I am modifying this weeks theme a bit because it asked for top 10 books of your favorite genre, but since so much of my blog is devoted to Fantasy, I decided to mix it up and list out 10 of my favorite non-Fantasy books…. of course some of these may be a bit of fantasy as well, but their predominant genre would be something else. And I won’t commit that these are my absolute favorite top 10, because well, I know I will think of books later that I wished I had included. That’s just the way it goes. But these are 10 of my favorite non-fantasy (which means for me they are all either horror or science fiction since I don’t read much else)

Top Ten Tuesday – Rainy Day Reads
Top Ten Tuesday / April 16, 2019

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme by That Artsy Reader Girl.This feature gives a weekly Top Ten list. We all love lists, right? This week’s theme is  Rainy Day Reads (submitted by Shayna @ Clockwork Bibliotheca)I had a really hard time deciding what would constitute a good “rainy day read” for me, because honestly, just getting to have a rainy day read is what I love and the books can vary. But I decided to go with books that I found very addictive quite quickly. I also tried to keep them under 400 pages with the thought of “quick reads”, but there are some that went over.

This week’s theme is January 29: The Ten Most Recent Additions to My To-Read List So, this one was easy. I just sorted Goodreads by Date Added, filtered out a couple I know have been on their longer, but sometimes the dates wind up wonky if I change the status or add a tag like ‘2019-release’. Anyway, here it is, the last 10 books I added. There seems to be a good mix of stuff in here:

2019 New SFF Series and Standalones
Lists / January 8, 2019

Alright, it’s somehow already 2019! So, I decided I should make a list of the New Series and Standalones for the year. It’s pretty much impossible to get all the books on these lists, so here is a good sampling of ones I’m excited for. Please feel free to leave ones I’ve not included in the comments. I apologize for the mish-mash order. I usually try to group them better or organize by release date or genre, but the new WordPress is not my friend right now, and I decided I’d rather post than spend the time sorting the list with the new block style that is not as easy to just move chunks at a time (Yes, I can easily move blocks, but each book has about 4 blocks that are not easy to move all together)   Gods meddle in the fates of men, men play with the fates of gods, and a pretender must be cast down from the throne in this breathtaking first fantasy novel from Ann Leckie, New York Times bestselling author and winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards. For centuries, the kingdom of Iraden has been protected by the god…

Review: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch
4.5 Stars , Reviews / August 1, 2016

Dark Matter is a science fiction thriller that hooks you instantaneously and just doesn’t let go. Addictive, to say the least. I ripped through it in about a day in a half, and happily found it to be one of those books that pretty much demands you neglect all other aspects of your life because it refuses to get to a point where you feel you can set it down. But I certainly wasn’t complaining. I love getting so into a story that I can’t/won’t do anything else. Thankfully not all the books I enjoy are like this as I do have a life that needs tending to, but when a book grabs me like this, I have to say I love leaving the real world behind for a bit. The concept of this book is fascinating as well. It examines the questions, what would you do differently in  your life if you were given a chance? How would that one decision impact the rest of your life? What would you do if one day your entire life has changed with no explanation of how or why? We get a brief picture of our protagonist, Jason, in his current life (his life before…
