The Chaos of a Life and Finally Finding Time To Read A Book Again! – Book Review: The Terror by Dan Simmons

It's been a weird few weeks. Ever since I moved back home from the Arctic at the start of the month, days have been blending together. I feel like I've had far too much to do and nothing at all at the same time. Like everything has changed, yet it's all the same. I've tried... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Dead Zone by Stephen King

Since I'm on a King binge that I just can't seem to quit, I carried on with The Dead Zone, on someone's recommendation. I'd never heard of this book before, at all, and was surprised to find out that it's one of his earlier works. Again, going in blind makes King's books not feel so... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Tree That Grew Through Iron by McKenzie Austin

A rogue timefather. An immortal captain. A mythical earthmother. A dying continent. These are just some of the things you'll experience in The Tree That Grew Through Iron, as Nicholai Addihein joins Captain Kazuaki Hidataka and his crew in a quest to save the world, and hopefully, his love. Austin has created a magnificent fantasy... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Baptism of Fire by Andrzej Sapkowski

The 3rd (or 5th) book in the series, and definitely the best one so far, Baptism of Fire ramps up absolutely everything and it seems to be that we're on a much steadier course now than before. With the first two books (excluding the short stories) there's a lot of setting up plot lines, understanding... Continue Reading →

Book Review: A Map of the World by Zev Good

Yet again, I've been reading a collection of short stories, and this was something very special. First of all, I don't really know how to describe this, or the stories. If I was to put a genre on it, I don't know, maybe I'd call them dramas. Family dramas, or romantic dramas. That's at least... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Skyward by Brandon Sanderson

I finally got around to reading a Brandon Sanderson book. Took me a while, I've been eyeing the Mistborn series for ages, but I think I'll get it on audiobook, and I had this lying around since Christmas. I don't remember how I heard about Sanderson, but his name floats around in writing circles and... Continue Reading →

Book Review: Blood Drops by W.B. Welch

Great captivating writing. One of the better short story collections and some of the best horror I've read in ages. Welch's writing is gorgeous and these stories are fantastic. Welch has a way of writing these beautiful, delicate passages, and then suddenly hitting us with the cold, hard truth. It's refreshing. I loved that there's... Continue Reading →
