Book Review: Orchid

As a rule, I do not review non-medical books on this blog, unless it forms part of a Top Ten Tuesday. However, since my recent discovery of the myriad of book blogs, Goodreads and the ability to read while maintaining my schedule has led to me rather bravely attempting a bookish challenge, I have decidedContinue reading “Book Review: Orchid”

TTT: Quotes that Inspire

I think one of the biggest reasons I read is because it inspires me. It inspires me to live, to love, to be bigger than I am, to exceed life’s expectations. I guess you could say I collect quotes – so today’s Top Ten Tuesday with The Broke and the Bookish is making me very happy. TheseContinue reading “TTT: Quotes that Inspire”

TTT: Books to Movies

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday from The Broke and the Bookish is a little counter-intuitive for me. My first love was, and will always be, books. I always watch movies based on books, but I am more often than not disappointed. It’s great that non-readers get to enjoy these stories too, but often they don’t get the deeperContinue reading “TTT: Books to Movies”

Book Review: The Emperor of All Maladies

In 2012 I participate for the first time in a bookish challenge. Click here to see the different catagories.  For the History category I read The Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee. The Emperor of all Maladies is a biography: not of a person or a company, but of a disease – one of the mostContinue reading “Book Review: The Emperor of All Maladies”

Daemon Invasion is Here

…and that’s Daemon, not demon… I have the cool opportunity to join Obsidian author Jennifer Armentrout and her readers in what they call Daemon Invasion, in anticipation of the release of the second Lux novel, Onyx. I will post an Obsidian review soon for those who haven’t read it yet. It’s sci-fi/paranormal/YA with some chemistry too andContinue reading “Daemon Invasion is Here”

TTT: Characters of my Heart

People that don’t read often express confusion as to the attraction of the hobby. Why read? Why not be social and have friends? First-off, bookworms have friends. They do tend to be more picky though, in my experience. But here’s part of the real attraction in books: they introduce you to a wide array ofContinue reading “TTT: Characters of my Heart”

TTT: Totally Deceiving Books

The saying goes that people will deceive you, but books never will. But sometimes, books do (whether in a good or a bad way). Today, The Broke and the Bookish talks about those situations where a book was not what you thought it would be. Sometimes this happens because you misread the blurp, or sometimes it’s justContinue reading “TTT: Totally Deceiving Books”

Book Review: The Garden of Evening Mists

A few months ago, an awesome thing happened: I was contacted by Myrmidon Books to participate in a Virtual Book Tour (my first time ever). Very exciting, and nice to get to read a book without buying it too (you were all thinking it, no lies). The Garden of Evening Mists by Tan Twan EngContinue reading “Book Review: The Garden of Evening Mists”
