Charity Shop Finds!

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 […]

This Side of Paradise

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. […]

The White Shelf Epidemic

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. They were not cheap to deliver, part of my soul died and I intend to be buried with those shelves. For those of […]

The Light Blue Book: 500 Years of Gaelic Love and Transgressive Verse

This next one has a doozy of a title; The Light Blue Book: 500 Years of Gaelic Love and Transgressive Verse, and though it states approx. 320 pages, unless you can read Gaelic you’re only going to read the English translations so cut that page count in half to about 155. I completely and utterly […]

Caught in the Revolution

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.

The Best of Richard Matheson

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 […]

Metro 2033

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 […]
