The Great Series Read: 5 Series I Want To Start

Off The TBR_ The Great Series Read Project

Back in March I posted about The Great Series Read Project where I (and others) have listed all the book series we’ve started but not finished in a vain attempt to actually try to finish them. I later created a page on the blog to help me keep track of the series as I work through them. Continue reading

Book Review: The Deep


Atmospheric and thought provoking. That’s my short analysis of The Deep by Rivers Solomon (with Daveed Diggs, William Hutson, and Jonathan Snipes). The Deep will make you ponder what it means to be a people, the importance of history, and the roles individuals play within a society.

Book Review: The Gallows Black


The Grave of Empires is shaping up to be a new favorite fantasy series. Filled with humor, wit, and memorable if somewhat questionable characters who you can’t help but root for, Sam Sykes’ latest series is just a joy to read. The Gallows Black picks up on the explosive energy of Seven Blades In Black and fills in a gap in the history of Sal and her friend/lover Liette. If you loved Seven Blades In Black you’ll definitely want to read this prequel novella. Continue reading

Book Haul: April 2020

Off The TBR_ Book Haul Post

It’s time for another Book Haul post. One of my blogging goals for 2020 is to be to be more intentional about Book Haul posts. I’m aware that it’s possible nobody cares about the books I’ve bought or received, but I kinda like when bloggers post these because it not only puts new books in front of my eyeballs that I might not be aware of, but they also give me an idea of the blogger’s tastes. For my purposes a Book Haul post can include any book I’ve come to possess, not just those I buy, so arcs requested or just sent from publishers will be listed as well. Continue reading

Blog Update: Award Nominee Challenge

Off The TBR_ Blog Page Update

I have quick blog update for everyone! I’ve added another menu item to the blog along with a new challenge.

The Award Nominee Challenge

A week or two ago I posted about My Nebula And Hugo Award Reading Challenge where I’m trying to read the nominees for Best Novel, Best Novella, and Best Short Story for the Nebula and Hugo Awards. Well, I’ve created a page dedicated to the challenge. In addition, I’ve created a page for another, similar challenge…to read and review all of the SPBFO5 Finalists. The goal is to read them all before the end of the year but I recognize up front that it might not happen. Ultimately the goal would be just to read them all…Some day…Before I die. I’d like to add to this list each year as the nominees/finalists are named, and maybe even do previous years if I decide to really get wild. Continue reading
