The upside is that greenhouses and nurseries are going to be allowed to open, which means FLOWERS! One of my book club friends runs a seasonal flower/garden center with her Mom and I’m super stoked to support them with ALL MY FLOWER DOLLARS. I look forward to planting annuals every year… Read more »

Vampires and Witches and Daemons, Oh My! (The All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness)

Good Morrow, Bookworms! Stop me if you’ve heard this one: A witch, a daemon, and a vampire walk into a bar… Oh wait, you know that one? That’s kind of what I thought too, when I started reading the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. I decided to review the series as a whole, because I totally binge listened to them and this way I can limit spoilers with carefully placed… Read more »

Repeat by Neal Pollack

Repeat by Neal Pollack

Hello, Hello Bookworms! Want to know a secret? One of my all-time favorite movies is Groundhog Day. I’m sure that says disturbing things about my psyche, but it’s the truth.

Kindred by Octavia Butler

Kindred by Octavia Butler

Hi Ho there, Bookworms! I hope everyone’s holidays were spectacular! I know I enjoyed myself, but now ’tis the season to get back in the swing of things. Shall we? I spend an inordinate amount of time daydreaming about how I would cope if I were sucked back in time. I blame Diana Gabaldon for my obsession, but the concept is pretty universal. What would you do? My biggest concern… Read more »

My absolute favorite part of this novel? The trip to Antarctica. What… Read more »
