Non-Contemporary May Wrap-up!

 Hello, fellow readers! Rather expectedly, everything I finished was queer. I picked up two straight books and DNF’d both of them. I reviewed the contemporary reads of the month already because it’s my favorite genre, but I do read outside of it.  The Giddy Deaths Of The Gays And The Strange Demise Of The Straights, Redfern JonContinue reading “Non-Contemporary May Wrap-up!”

Ready Player One: Geeky Things I’ve Yet To Get To

If you follow this blog, you know most of the things I’ve read. Yet there’s so much geekery out there that I’ve yet to get to, as RP1 bases its existence on to prove. It’s not The Almanac (Read the book) but here’s just a few things on my to-do list, geek version. Ladyhawke It’s a fantasy/Continue reading “Ready Player One: Geeky Things I’ve Yet To Get To”

April Wrap-up

The Bookshop On The Corner, Jenny Colgan, 7/12 333 pages genre-romance Written slowly, read quickly. It was quite obvious who she’d end up with. It’s loosely based on Pride and Prejudice, but doesn’t mention it in the numerous book references. Scotland is described nicely. Good for rainy days. End Of Watch, Stephen King, 9/12, 482Continue reading “April Wrap-up”

The Stars, Like Dust: Asimov Was Full Of Himself

The Stars, Like Dust, Isaac Asimov, circa 1951/83, 184 pages  Issac Asimov, sci-fi master, was next on the shelf. Not wanting to go through a series like Foundation or Robot yet, I snatched The Stars, Like Dust to get a sense of him.  He’s full of himself. In every chapter, there is an exaggerated plotContinue reading “The Stars, Like Dust: Asimov Was Full Of Himself”

Childhood’s End – Book Review

Childhood’s End, Arthur C. Clarke, 218 pages, circa 1953, 7/12  Clarke is of course, one of those famous masters of sci-fi but I didn’t pick him up until my library’s giveaway shelf had a battered, almost-gone cover, of a copy.  It spans over 100 years, with different human characters. My favorite human is alive forContinue reading “Childhood’s End – Book Review”
