What I Read: October 2016

Okay, it’s pretty late in November to put this post up.  I’ve been busy with Pokémon Sun and Moon, duh.

The good news is, after a slow summer with books, October saw me picking up the pace again.  535 more words


Book Review: Imprudence

I’ve been waiting so long on this book! I had so many expectations. As I’ve stated before – I love the world Carriger has created. I’ve read every single book (not all the short stories yet, I’m working on those!) and enjoyed them all. 868 more words


Changeless by Gail Carriger

It took me a lot longer to finish this second book in the Parasol Protectorate series than it did the first, and I’m not entirely sure why it didn’t hold my attention as well (vacation, friend visits, work, summer?), but I enjoyed it nonetheless. 92 more words


Book Review: Discount Armageddon (InCryptid, Book 1) by Seanan McGuire
