Book Review: Bloodlines

Last night I finished reading Bloodlines by Richelle Mead. It’s a spin-off of her popular Vampire Academy series, so it was set in the same world with characters we’ve previously met.

Book Review: Ready Player One

So I’ve finally finished Ready Player One, and it’s fantastic! I was surprised at how long it took me to read this novel, but then I noticed that 2 Nook Book pages = 1 page. So my 394 page novel turned into a 788 page novel. But despite that oddity this book was incredibly hard to put […]

And the Winner Is . . .

So I’ve finally made a decision on what to read next. And the winner is…. Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One. A co-worker of mine had suggested I read this book back in October, and so I placed it on my wish list. Finally, it has moved to the top of the pile. The book description on […]
