Book Review: Piranesi by Susanna Clarke

Today's book review covers a fascinating science fiction books which I totally did not see coming! Piranesi by Susanna Clarke is the summer book club pick for a podcast I sometimes follow, Speaking with Joy. I trust Joy's taste in books and have enjoyed listening to her summer book club podcasts for the last two years even though I did not read along either time. This year, despite my busy work and school schedule, I decided to try to read the book as well. Thankfully it's a fairly short book at just a little over 200 pages. Because Piranesi is science fiction, I was initially unsure about it. I expected it to be weird, predictable, and somewhat boring while engaging to some extent with meaningful topics. Instead, I entered an incredible world filled with mystery, awe, drama, and miracles. I was hooked by the second section, and I think if you are open to science fiction you will be, too.

Duology Review: Meg & Jo and Beth & Amy by Virginia Kantra

We're starting this week off with a double feature: a combined review of two books, Meg & Jo and Beth & Amy which make up the March Sisters duology by Virginia Kantra.

Mini Book Review: Mirror’s Edge by Scott Westerfeld (Impostors #3)

Happy Friday! I managed to read this book shortly after my spring classes, and boy does it pack a punch. If you're a fan of action, this book has plenty of it. Westerfeld's books are vastly different from what I usually enjoy, but somehow they always manage to sink in so that my mind is always thinking ahead, generating theories, and speculating while I'm reading. I'm usually not right when I try to anticipate, but it's a fun process nonetheless!

Mini Book Review: Irrepressible Reformer by Wayne A. Wiegand

Happy Friday! This is going to be a somewhat strange weekend for me, as I am off work today, do work tomorrow, and then have Sunday off like normal plus Monday for Memorial Day. I hope to get some last-minute reading and planning done, as my summer classes start on Tuesday. Today I'm sharing a... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Eubeltic Quest by Nadine C. Keels

Happy Friday! The main story where I am has been the weather - we've been close to record lows! There has been snow, ice, and negative wind chills. None of those things are weather that I am used to! Thankfully, my work has been responsible with adjusting our operating hours so that staff can travel... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Common Rule by Justin Whitmel Earley

Happy Friday! Somehow this week feels longer than some, even though Monday was a holiday. My school started back up (all online for now) on Wednesday, and we've certainly hit the ground running. Four classes while working full time is going to be a lot of work! The material looks interesting though, so I'm sure... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple

It's finally time for my first full book review of the year, featuring the last book I read in 2020! To be honest, I only read Where'd You Go, Bernadette because I heard part of it was set on Antarctica and I still hadn't marked that continent off my reading challenge. Also, since I knew...

Christmas Mini Book Review: The Christmas Cat by Melody Carlson

Happy first day of winter! Usually, Oklahoma is a little slow on the uptake about season changes, but this year we got winter early (and I am not complaining). It has definitely helped me get into the Christmas spirit.
