The Woman in the Window by A. J. Finn

I am very picky about my mysteries; I have grown up reading Agatha Christie's Poirot stories, which for me are the epitome of mysteries, and TV Shows like Monk - as far as I am concerned, one of the best TV detectives - so, in comparison, I find a lot of new mysteries and thrillers …

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo by Taylor Jenkins Reid

I picked this book up thinking that I would be in for something light - a beach read. But, damn, was I wrong. Going by the name and the blurb, I really thought I’d be reading some cliched Hollywood starlet and her failed marriages tale; I couldn’t have been more wrong. Okay, let’s get into …

A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness

Let me be clear, the only reason I picked this book up is that the TV adaptation of this stars Alex Kingston, and I LOVE Alex Kingston. Diana Bishop is a witch who has rejected her witchy powers after the death of her parents under mysterious circumstances. She is a scholar and a science historian …

coffee at Starbucks

(Now, I don't ever write poetry because I know I am terrible at it. But this accidentally came into being at 1:00am or so, several moons ago, and I didn't hate it completely. As usual, I must thank Thang for editing and beta testing and whatever. Also, I performed this at an open mic earlier …

The Caller

I don't usually write such long things, because I always lose interest halfway through, and forget what the point was and go off on some tangent. This, somehow, worked out. Anyway, thank you, Thang (you know who you are) for editing and what not. ❤ The Caller Each day, at exactly 3:29am, the house phone …

We Were Here First!

As far as we are aware, there was no one here before us. We’ve been here since the 70’s, and now, these "others" want to come up here? Well, I think they ought to ask us permission first! We’ve been feeding them information about this place, we’ve been doing so much for them and the …

Waking Up

Clarissa woke up and didn’t know where she was, or in whose bed she had woken up in. She remembered falling asleep in her own bed after a few glasses of wine while watching the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy. It was a particularly tough episode to watch, as most of the finales of that …

The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

I started this book in the last week of January, and I finished it, a month later, in February. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood was a particularly tough book to read; so, instead, I decided to listen to the audio book version of it. Listening to Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale is a beautiful experience, …

The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi

John Scalzi had hit it out of the park with the Old Man's War series. It features weird aliens, really good characters, and a really interesting concept. He, now, returns with a new Space Opera series called The Interdependency.  The Collapsing Empire is the first in this new series. The Interdependency is the name of the …

Multitudinous Seas Incarnadine

Macbeth: Whence is that knocking? How is’t with me when every noise appalls me? What hands are here? Hah! They pluck- [cough] [The actor staggers around, seemingly forgotten his lines; he covers his mouth and coughs, and then he seems to come back to it; once back, he continues] -out mine eyes. Will all great …
