Book Recommendation Monday: Monstrous Regiment

Posted on February 4, 2019 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Polly runs away from home, disguised as a boy to save her brother from war. Turns out her whole squadron is also made up of disguised women running to war for various reasons and they are all kicking ass with the help of some well placed socks in their trousers. And it's Terry Pratchett, so you know it's hilarious and thoughtful....

February 2019 - Reading/Writing Goals

Posted on February 4, 2019 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Most of 2018 was spent bouncing from idea to idea. I got things down on paper, but I could never really keep to anything for more than a few weeks. Quite frankly, I didn't want to anyway. I burned myself out. I drove myself into a frenzy that I needed to edit, rewrite, edit some more, and publish two books for 2019, but nothing was ready. And I...

Book Recommendation Monday: Shatterglass

Posted on January 28, 2019 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

It's book four of last week's series (book eight overall in the world). Daja is awesome, but I love Tris. Tris is a weather mage who stores lightning and wind in her hair to use when she needs them. She spends her time being introverted and reading and sassy, but also helping to catch a murderer. A...

Book Recommendation Monday: Cold Fire

Posted on January 21, 2019 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Technically this is the third book in a series (seventh book in the world) but you don't really need to read the Circle books in order. They follow the same characters, but each book is mostly standalone, anything you need to know is neatly recapped. And besides Daja is among the best of the characters. She's a magi...

TV Show Recommendation Monday: The Golden Girls

Posted on January 14, 2019 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

Need I say more? I mean, sassy ladies living in Miami (yet always cold enough for heavy sweaters), hangin' on the lanai, eatin' all the cheesecake. Ignore the continuity errors and embrace it. Embrace it!

Book Recommendation Monday: From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler

Two kids run away from home and live in the Met. I still want to run away and live in a museum. I can't be the only one to have read this that now scopes out places to sleep and hide in museums. Or am I? Whatever. I still really wanted to be like Claudia and Jamie.

Book Recommendation Monday: Song of the Lioness

I'm sentimental and in high school discovered fantasy and these, with Fellowship of the Ring, were among the first fantasy books I read. Alanna's journey continues to inspire me all these years later. I love knights and especially lady knights. 

Book Recommendation Monday: Fellowship of the Ring

Posted on December 24, 2018 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

It holds a special place in my heart, more so than Two Towers or Return of the King, as one of the first books to actually get me interested in fantasy and every November/December I get the urge to reread it. It's an undertaking though and it is not for everyone, but if you've the heart (and patience and tolerance for so much singing!) then it's worth th...

Game Recommendation Monday: Breath of the Wild

Posted on December 17, 2018 at 7:30 PM Comments comments (0)

I was torn on which Zelda game to recommend. There's so many good ones to choose from, but Breath of the Wild has something the others don't, a massive world. LoZ games have side quests and secret rooms, but there's something uniquely wonderful about the amount of exploring done in this game and you don't even have to beat temples in order to explore everywhere. Plus,...
