A Review of Wings Unseen

Wings Unseen by Rebecca Gomez Farrell My rating: 4 of 5 stars I received an early copy from NetGalley for a fair, honest, review. Wings Unseen got off to a slow start with a first chapter that almost made me put the book down. However, I am glad I kept reading. I loved watching howContinue reading “A Review of Wings Unseen”

Don’t Judge this By Its 1st Chapter: A Review of How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days

How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days by Megan O’Russell My rating: 4 of 5 stars If you enjoyed Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon, you will probably enjoy How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days as they both feature a snarky, sort of whiny, self-aware narratorContinue reading “Don’t Judge this By Its 1st Chapter: A Review of How I Magically Messed Up My Life in Four Freakin’ Days”

Book Review: The Dying Game

The Dying Game by Asa Åvdic My rating: 2.5 of 5 stars This one is going to be hard to review without spoilers, but I’ll do the best I can.

Book Review: Dalí

For the past few years, I had been living under a metaphorical rock. Things like the news, current, events, and politics gave me panic attacks. Last year, I had a wake up call and realized that ignoring  the news wasn’t making it any less scary. I used to show my students a documentary called “TheContinue reading “Publication and Politics”

Thoughts on Cursed Child and a Lesson or Two on Character

In spite of all the hype about Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, I didn’t know what to expect when I sat down to read it. Was this going to be one of those instances where the author just couldn’t let go and ruined the series? Was the format going to give me a headache?Continue reading “Thoughts on Cursed Child and a Lesson or Two on Character”
