Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

Date Thu, July 13 2017

Leave it to me to read a book about cadavers. Actually, I think everyone should read this book (at least, the people who might find interesting and enlightening), so I’ll read it and let you know what I liked about it. First, a little background. Mary Roach is a journalist and science educator who has […]

Ms. Marvel Volume 1: No Normal

Date Fri, June 23 2017

I like comics. I first read them more than half of my lifetime ago. Yet, somehow, I managed not to read any Marvel titles. I wanted to rectify that this year and had the chance when Comixology added a bunch of Marvel titles to their Unlimited subscription program (it’s no longer available from there, though). […]

Yes Please by Amy Poehler

Date Mon, May 1 2017

I’ve been watching Parks and Recreation for the second time (nearly finished, actually). I appreciate the show more now than I did my first run though, I think. Although, I did and still do see much of myself in the main character, Leslie Knope. Leslie is played by SNL veteran, feminist, and comedienne Amy Poehler, […]

The False Prince by Jennifer Nielson

Date Fri, April 28 2017

For years, my sister has been raving about the Ascendance Trilogy, a series of fantasy books for young adults. She first read them a few years ago (right around the time that the books came out), so I am definitely out of the ideal demographic as a nearly 31-year-old woman, but I wanted to read […]

Unnatural Creatures

Date Tue, March 14 2017

Unnatural Creatures is a collection of short stories curated by Neil Gaiman about monsters and fantastic beasts of all sorts. If you’re familiar with Gaiman’s fiction, then you probably expect these stories to be new and unusual takes on those stories, and you’d be right. In these pages you’ll read about strange spots, griffons, werewolves and […]
