Book Thoughts: *Life & Death: Twilight Reimagined*

Hey, remember three years ago when I wrote this post? Well, I finally got around to actually reading that book, and I have a looooooot of thoughts to share. Probably too many thoughts. But I’m gonna try to squeeze as many as I can into this post. My first thought is this — Stephenie. Publishers. Darling fellow […]

Book Thoughts – Star Wars: Last Shot

Star Wars: Last Shot by Daniel Jose Older This book was a delightful, unexpected surprise for me. I admit, it took me a bit to get into it. I started it back in April when it first came out (and I will be the first to admit, I surprised myself when I showed up at Barnes […]

Book Thoughts: *Starless* by Jacqueline Carey

June 12 was one of the greatest days I’ve had in recent memory. It started with a fairly regular morning. Then, I drove down to my old office neighborhood and met up with coworkers for lunch (it was also the first day I met my friend’s new baby). After lunch, two of my girlfriends joined […]

She Regrets Nothing: Book Thoughts

As I mentioned in my Ready Player One post, I’m terrible at writing reviews. I either give away too much or too little or don’t talk about the right (which I totally just started to type as write) things… so, even though I might use the TAG “Reviews” on this blog post, just think of it as my book thoughts, okay?

Book Review/Recap: I Can Barely Take Care of Myself

I am obsessed with this book: Not only am I obsessed with it, but I kinda wish I’d written it. I could definitely write my own version of it, because while I felt myself laughing out loud and cheering in solidarity alongside Jen Kirkman throughout this warm and honest memoir, I also have my own […]

Book Club: Martin Dressler – American Dreamer

So we moved on to the next book — Martin Dressler: The Tale of an American Dreamer by Steven Millhauser. And… I hated it. Okay, that’s slightly (slightly) unfair. I really hated the ending. It was just such a let down. I won’t explain what happened, but basically, it was just… ugh. Anyway. Like I mentioned […]

Reading *The Hours* and Learning to Like my Kindle

I am a book snob. This is no surprise to anyone who has ever met me. Now, I am not a snob in the types of books that I read, necessarily (she types, glancing over at her still-preserved *Twilight* shelf…). But I am the type of book snob that has posted/shared this meme on well […]

Pre-Reading Post: Life & Death Twilight Reimagined

Yesterday was the tenth anniversary of the release of Twilight by Stephanie Meyer, the first book in the Twilight saga. Now, if you’re new around here (i.e., haven’t known me or known me well since 2008), you might not realize that Twilight is very significant to me. Me, rereading book one, on October 5, 2015 […]
