Sunday Post #87 (7/13/14)

The Sunday Post is hosted by Kimba Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s ridiculous how fast the days are going. At least we got a couple of days that didn’t hit the 100s. Friday only reached 95° and it felt like such relief. How sad is that? Winner of the 4th of July giveaway was Braine. 🙂 […]

The Swan and the Jackal by JA Redmerski

Oh. My. God. This book! I saw The Swan and the Jackal a couple months ago and knew I needed to read it. Since this is the third book in the series, I had to start from the beginning. This book was always my ultimate goal though, the reason I started the series. The first […]

The Strain by Guillermo del Toro & Chuck Hogan

The Strain by Guillermo del Toro & Chuck Hogan

Happy Independence Day 2014!

Happy Independence Day 2014!

It may be the 4th of July everywhere, but it’s Independence Day here in good ol’ America! It’s my favorite holiday. Summertime, barbeques, swimming, concert in the park, baseball games, fireworks and alcohol (totally safe)  … ’tis good! We’ll be up bright and early for a 10k, so it’s going to be a loooong day. […]

The City by Dean Koontz

The City by Dean Koontz

Me and ol’ Koontz have some history. I started reading his books when I was a youngin’, like elementary and jr. high. When I was about thirteen, I frequented a used bookstore and bought every Koontz book they would get in. One day, the crotchety old owner was ringing me up and said in a […]
