First off...I want to reassure you all that I am NOT addicted.Of all those books from our freakin' Facebook marketplace palooza, I kept maybe 1/5 of them. The rest are being donated or given away to friends! So now it's time for our regular Charity Shop finds, the ones from actual charity shops.Today's spending cap?… Continue reading Charity Shop Finds!
I'm a huge fan of good ol' Scotty, so, it's no surprise that I gave This Side of Paradise five stars; though this is another case of Goodreads skewing things by not letting us give half-star ratings, it's like the only thing I don't like about the site. So, in reality, I'd say 4.5 stars.… Continue reading This Side of Paradise
I'm concerned guys. First off, do you all own trucks? Cause Ikea delivery is insane, and I know those shelves, I have them. IN BLACK (because I'm a rebel, damn it). AND.

I completely and utterly… Continue reading The Light Blue Book: 500 Years of Gaelic Love and Transgressive Verse

Caught in the Revolution: Petrograd, Russia, 1917- A World on the Edge If you read my Metro 2033 review you'll see I've been on a bit of a Russian History binge. This is just another addition to me trying to conquer all available library books on the Russian Revolution. This was a very interesting read as… Continue reading Caught in the Revolution
The Best of Richard Matheson, edited by Victor LaValle was a super deliciously creepy read. This is the man who gave us some of the creepiest episodes of The Twilight Zone. For those of you who don't know, this is the man that gave us I Am Legend. To be truthful, I don't read scary things… Continue reading The Best of Richard Matheson
Oh, Metro 2033, what can I say about you? Blurb: Metro 2033 is a Dystopia-Horror book following the human race's migration into the Russian Underground Metro where of course instead of all coming together after such a disaster they are as divided as ever, what's more whatever is on the surface, which is certainly no… Continue reading Metro 2033
