I've decided to show to works on Wattpad. They are old novels I have no intention of publishing but figure they will make fine free reads. I will be publishing chapters weekly on both of them. One is called Soul Dancer and the other Blood Rider. They can be found on the Wattpad profile. I'll never… Continue reading Wattpad works
Sometimes I do in fact read to just ignore my problems for a while. I certainly read for escapism. To delve into another world entirely for just a time. Love this comic, by the way.
I brought home a load of books. I had two Chapters gift cards worth a total of $100 dollars to spend. And spend I did. In fact, 50 over. I hope that will not bite me in the ass with my rather tight budget. But I got 7 books. Canadian prices are pretty ridiculous these… Continue reading Loaded up on books
Because I happen to be poor lately I have been buying free books on Amazon. And coincidentally they are all romances. Sort of getting tired of that but Free. And can't beat free when you are poor. I can't review them because none of them are that great. Not worth commenting on or reading… Continue reading Spree of free books
I am reading a book called Smarter by Dan Hurley. Not particularly because I think my straight up IQ needs a boost. That is healthy at 140. Rather because I think my cognitive functions need a boost due to having depression and chronic migraines. Pain crowds the brain and makes it difficult to fit much… Continue reading Book review: Smarter

The Magicians: A Novel is by Lev Grossman and is the first book in a trilogy. The blurb: Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have stayed in Narnia?

Blink is by Malcolm Gladwell The blurb: Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell is a non-fiction book about the unconscious mind. In particular, though the part of the unconscious mind we automatically use to make split-second decisions, what he calls 'thin-slicing'. We like to believe our rational mind weighs facts and… Continue reading Book Review: Blink
I am reading Jason (An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, novel) by Laurell K. Hamilton which is a novella I picked up at the pharmacy because I have read her books before. I love the early Anita Blake Vampire Hunter series. I admit as the series turned from urban fantasy to more erotica I was a… Continue reading Book: Jason by Laurell K. Hamilton
Last to Rise (A Rojan Dizon Novel) is the final book in this series by Francis Knight. See my review for Fade to Black and the second in the series Before the Fall.

I just finished The God Argument: The Case Against Religion and for Humanism by A.C. Grayling and it was quite enjoyable to me. Keep in mind I am a philosophical agnostic who enjoys this sort of discussion but leans strongly towards atheism. It is just that sort of book I can enjoy. Thinking about religion and… Continue reading Book Review: The God Argument

I would recommend something I am reading, but nothing on the current list that is spectacular. And so I have been re-reading some favorites. The Chronicles of Amber, by Roger Zelazny, was a childhood favorite of mine. When I was twelve or so I began the process of raiding my dad's bookshelves and came across… Continue reading A favourite book: Chronicles of Amber
there seemed to be a decline in new fantasy fiction writers and it got me thinking. Off the top of my head I can name Anne Bishop and Kate Elliott as being fine women fantasy fiction writers... but then they have been around a bit.
