Spell the Month in Books // October 2021 Linkup

We're finally in the "-ber" months, which I find to be particularly difficult to complete without repeating books. Read on to see how this month goes! The goal is to spell the name of the current month by... Continue Reading →

Sci-Fi Book Spotlight: The Search for Synergy by Brett Salter

Happy first Friday of fall, Reader! Surprisingly, Oklahoma decided to at least think about following the calendar this year, and our temperatures have dropped to a blessedly more bearable average lately. Of course the temperature inside the library is another story - we're having issues with humidity, so they're super-cooling the building at night in... Continue Reading →

Tackling the TBR #30

It has become apparent that my TBR (to be read) list has gotten nearly out of hand. Therefore, I have decided to do a post featuring ten books from it approximately every other week. As I go through the list, I will evaluate each book and decide whether or not it still belongs. Who knows, perhaps as my list (hopefully) shrinks, you will find a few books to add to your own!

Five Star Book Review: Discernment (The Legacy Chronicles #3) by Lauren H. Salisbury

Today I'm reviewing a truly amazing science fiction book that took me by surprise in the best way possible.

WWW Wednesday // August 18, 2021

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme currently hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. The three W’s stand for the following questions: What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next? To participate, make a post or comment answering the three questions, link up to the host (Sam)’s post, and check out what others are reading and talking about! I typically participate once a month, approximately in the middle of the month, as a halfway check-in on my monthly reading goals.

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.
