My typical reading month involves delving into two books simultaneously; one in ebook format, the other an audiobook for those long housework hours, getting ready in the mornings, and so on. While I’ve been slugging my way through the beast that is The Name of the Wind, (seriously, there are far more audiobook hours in […]

Hey! Long time no write! At least on my blog, anyway. I want to share with you some rough draft book blurbs from books I’ve read in the past. Meaning, not books I’ve read in June. Reasoning being that I haven’t finished any novels this past month. I have like five I’m currently reading (oh the […]

What’s up, readers and writers? I’m currently up at 12:20 am (my favorite writing time, aka the only time I do not fear that the baby will start screaming and interrupt me), and I’m here to share a topic that has been absolutely plaguing me for the last few weeks. I’ll tell you why. This month I […]

“He’s delayed,” the woman over the phone says, all a-matter-of-fact, as if the mother should be used to this thing by now. “In my opinion, I’d look into more therapy.” More therapy. Ironically, all the mother hears is, more opinions. “Thanks,” she says regardless. “I’ll look into that.” Then with a goodbye and a schedule to […]

The views represented in this post are not necessarily supported by Sci-fi Characters Review Sci-fi books, except that they totally are because this is basically the written form of ventriloquism. Oh, and no Ewoks were neglected in the making of this review. Enjoy.) I’m not […]

The first post for my Rough Draft Book Blurbs segment is here! In the video below I share some of the book blurbs that I imagine might have originally come to the minds of the author’s whose books I have most recently read. While I finish Arclight and we wait for the review to come on that, enjoy my face talking about books. You know, if you like that kind of stuff. Please let me know what you think!
This booktube thing has me feeling like a Mandalorian without a jet-pack, like Sokka without his boomerang, like a wizard without a wand. In other words I’m new to this, ya know?

What do kids think Arclight is about, just from the title? In this segment of our monthly read, we’ll figure that out. These kids are all real, these are their actual responses, and they’re about as weird and random as you would imagine. 3-year-old, name unavailable – It’s about snakes and all the snakes are […]

Welcome to my little corner of the internet! Now, let’s get this out of the way right off the bat: the url, my username, they both lie. I’m not actually here to write book reviews that focus on what I think (for the most part, anyway). Think of me more as a bridge between fictional […]

A post in which I state a very pivotal thing that authors and writers really should not be doing. Really.

Hey readers! I finally chose from my TBR jar, so watch the video below to see what the book of the month is (and get to know a special guest *wink*). Here is the synopsis of The Name of the Wind taken off of Goodreads: Told in Kvothe’s own voice, this is the tale of […]

Vacation has left me a bit MIA in the writing realm, but that is a topic for another day. Next week I plan to choose another sci-fi/fantasy book to focus on for the month of June, but to fill in that time I’d like to share a writing struggle I’ve thought a lot about while […]
