Book Review: Invictus, by Ryan Graudin @ryangraudin
Yes, Graudin can write science fiction! And Invictus  was as enjoyable as all her other novels . Farway's mother was jumping through time when he was born, so he literally has no birthday.  In this future, you can train to be a recorder of history by visiti...

Book Review: Nyxia by Scott Reintgen @Scott_Thought
I loved Nyxia .  And yes, it should be compared to Ender's Game , which I love too, but it also stands on its own. The Babel Corporation has recruited some teens from all over the earth to go to a distant planet and mine for (and steal) a substance called N...

Audiobook Review: Natchez Burning, by Greg Iles
At almost 36 hours, I think  Natchez Burning  is the longest book I've ever listened to. But it was good! Natchez Burning  is the 4th book in the Penn Cage  series.  I didn't realize that.  Somehow I thought it was the first.  But as I was listening, it see...

Audio Book Review: Gray Mountain by John Grisham
It's been a while since I've read a John Grisham, and while I enjoyed Gray Mountain ,  it wasn't a typical, heart-pounding drama like The Firm (one of my favorites of his.) Gray Mountain  is the story of a person, Samantha Kofer, not of a dramatic court cas...

We are all desperate for more Harry Potter and the story of  Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was great but left me wanting... Harry and Draco Malfoy's kids, Albus and Scorpius, are going to Hogwarts. Surprisingly, they become friends.  When they decide to...

Book Review: After the Game by Abbi Glines
I'm picky about my romantic contemporary novels, but After the Game  has enough substance included, and I really enjoyed it. The story of Riley and Brady is a high school romance with an emphasis on family, forgiveness, and responsibility. Riley and her par...
