K is Katniss, the Girl Who Was On Fire

When The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins first became “the book” to read, I refused to buy into the hype. Not just because it was so overhyped, but because by then I had given up on dystopian and post-apocalyptic entertainment. It is just too depressing. Unless there are zombies, because, well, I love zombies. I … Continue reading

Book Review: The Last Noel by Michael Malone

The Last Noel by Michael Malone My rating: 5 of 5 stars Curse you, Michael Malone! CURSE YOU for keeping me up late at night and making me deplete half my stock of tissues.

His eyes widened. “You have the wrong person,” he protested. She ignored him, her eyes cold as marble. There was no mistaking … Continue reading

Book Review: You Know When the Men Are Gone by Siobhan Fallon

You Know When the Men Are Gone by Siobhan Fallon My rating: 5 of 5 stars I am a military wife, so perhaps I’m a little more biased than some–but I have to say, I LOVED this book. A quick read, as it was a series of short stories told from the various viewpoints: the … Continue reading

Introducing: Five on Friday

Borrowing an idea I’ve seen on other blogs, I thought a “Five on Friday” feature would be fun, along with ensuring that I post something regularly. Depending on the category, the list could be the last 5 places I ate, 5 things you don’t know about me, that sort of thing. This week, I thought I’d … Continue reading
