Now that I have a bit more free time on my hands I’ve reinvigorated my interest in reading novels, and I came across a great series by accident. I wandered into a cute independent book store near my office, Magic City Books. Since I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, I just picked up random […]Read More Enter Sandman
I know. I’m a bad blogger. Lately I’ve kind of become a bit of a hermit, but all that’s changing. I’ve missed you guys!

Insurgent, the sequel to Divergent, was just as riveting as I hoped, and waiting until October for all that I’m sure will be waiting in Allegiant is going to be torture. This book dives deeper into the fault lines of the characters, […]Read More Insurgent

First, The Fault in Our Stars and now Divergent by Veronica Roth. Although, C. S. Lewis once said: “A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children […]Read More Young-Adult at heart! This week’s review: Divergent by Veronica Roth
Frost Burned Ahhhh! This post is so late, truthfully I totally forgot what day today was…is…wait, what’s today? If I had to pay out a dollar for every time I had to ask someone that question today, I would have bought someone’s lunch today…maybe more than one, if they were cheap. Well, better late than […]Read More Have Mercy!
