Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children Cover

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

I don’t know why I waited so long to read Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children! The funny part about it is that the beginning of the book takes place in my hometown. How cool is that?!? I was so happy when I saw that. The premise of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was […]

Drastic Measures Cover

Star Trek: Discovery: Drastic Measures

Drastic Measures is a great example of what not to do when faced with a crisis. You do not murder half the population because of food shortages and then when help arrives go into hiding. The book is a change from the usual sort of Star Trek novel. While it does focus on a Federation […]

Sasquatch Cover

Sasquatch

During third grade, my teacher read Sasquatch aloud to us. Of course, being young, the book scared me. But looking back I think this was around this time I was becoming intrigued with Sasquatch. I was extremely excited when I saw this book in Books A Million a few years back. I read when I […]

City of Bones

City of Bones

I first read City of Bones a few years back and continued on to the second and I think the third book I think. But for some reason, I never finished the series. So I figured it was time to start the series again. City of Bones is a larger book to get through. But […]

Eighteen Acres Cover

Eighteen Acres

While browsing my book library, I came across Eighteen Acres. It’s been on my list to read for years, so I figure why not give it a shot. Turns out, it’s a really good book! Getting into Eighteen Acres it took me a few chapters to get into the groove of things. But as the […]

The Last Best Hope (Star Trek: Picard)

I am a HUGE Star Trek fan, so when I saw The Last Best Hope show up for preorder, I quickly did just that. I am currently watching Star Trek: Picard as it airs each week and I wanted to learn more about what happened between The Next Generation and the current show. The writing […]

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Cover

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire used to be one of my least favorite books of the series. Not to mention, this is still the worst movie out of the entire series. Honestly, I would even skip reading this book before during my series re-reads. But this time I decided to give the Goblet […]
