I am an avid reader and love writing book reviews. Hopefully you will find your next great read here. I read a little bit of everything including comics and graphic novels, YA and children’s literature, non-fiction, and more.

  • At the end of the Enderverse

    About twenty years ago, I discovered an amazing book by Orson Scott Card. It was in the audiobook section of the public library. I knew nothing about it when I picked it up. But the cover intrigued me, especially that part about it being a science fiction classic. The audiobook of Ender’s Game was incredible […]

  • Reacher – Excellent TV

    When I first started watching, Reacher, I had no idea that this television series was based upon the novel that introduced the character to the world. Right away, I was taken aback by the cinematography, the powerful acting, and the great writing. I’m glad that I never read the first Jack Reacher novel. Experiencing it […]

  • Jeff Herman’s Great Guide for Writers

    Jeff Herman’s Guide to Book Publishers, Editors, & Literary Agents: Who they are, What they want, and How to win them over (29th Edition) This excellent reference book is now in its 29th edition. I reviewed an earlier iteration a few years back and was quite impressed with it. This new version updates the listing […]

  • Quichotte, Key Shot, or Quixote

    Quichotte by Salman Rushdie What a strange, but interesting and compelling book. The title character is on a quest to win the love of a celebrity that he has never met. He adopts the name of Don Quixote, shortens it, and pronounces it in a way that I had never heard before. It sounds like […]

  • It’s Time to Become a Digital Minimalist

    Digital Minimalism: Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World by Cal Newport I’ve been spending too much time on my phone lately. It’s so easy to use it for momentary distraction and entertainment. But that takes away from the more meaningful activities I could be doing. It also fractures my attention. I would like […]

Welcome to Your Child’s Brain by Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang This book didn’t give me an y magical insights into what is […]

  • Green Lantern Season Two

    Green Lantern Season Two: Volume 1 and 2 I don’t know what it is exactly, but Green Lantern has been in a lull for a little while now when it comes to the comics. I couldn’t even remember reading Season One when I picked up these two graphic novels from the public library. That’s mostly […]

  • No More Book Reports

    I’ve come to the tough decision to stop blogging about every book that I read. I spend a lot of time preparing these book reports, and while I have fun doing so, I’m not sure the time and effort I put into it is worth it anymore. There are so many other things I should […]

  • Quirky Eleanor Rigby

    Eleanor Rigby by Douglas Coupland It’s been a while since I’d read a novel by Douglas Coupland and I had a craving to dive into his quirky way of seeing the world. I like this thought about being able to fall in love over and over again in life. “You know, my own theory on […]

  • Your Words Can Change the World

    Don’t Drop the Mic: The Power of Your Words Can Change The World by T.D. Jakes I was browsing the library shelves when this title pretty much jumped out at me. I pulled the book from the shelf and thought, “Who is T.D. Jakes? He doesn’t look like a rapper!” I flipped through a few […]
