Book Review – Men and Other Mammals

I recently finished reading a really good book: Men and Other Mammals by Jim Keeble. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I picked it up at a used bookstore for about two dollars. It’s super graphic cover really caught my attention, and I though, “why not?” It’s actually been sitting in my office for about three or four months.… Read more →

You Need to Read This

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a total book nerd. I love to read, and I believe that a great afternoon is one that’s spent in a used book store. I am always in the middle of a book, sometimes more, and I am always hunting for my next favorite novel. So I thought I’d share a few of my favorite… Read more →

Love to Read

I have always loved to read. My mom really fostered a love for books in my household, and my siblings both love to read, as well. She read us a bedtime story every single night, and she always made an effort to stock our rooms with new reading material. And it really stuck! I read all the time now, and… Read more →

The House of Night Series

The fact that I read this series is a little embarrassing. I mean, I’m 25 years old, and I’m reading a series meant for high school aged girls. I can’t help it. I love the series. I started reading it when I was 18, and I have looked forward to the release of new books. Next month, they are releasing… Read more →

Anita Blake: Vampire Hunter

When I was about 16, I started reading this series. I was a little nervous at first because the first title is called Guilty Pleasures. It sounded like a romance novel, and I really wasn’t into it. But my mom was the one recommending it, and she said that it wasn’t bad at all. The title is just the name of… Read more →

Fictional Characters

I am a huge book nerd. I love to read, and I get really involved in certain stories. I feel like I get to be friends with the characters, and I get genuinely sad when the book ends. There have been many characters along the way that have stuck with me, and I still think about them, almost like they’re… Read more →

My “To-Read” List

I am not ashamed to admit it: I’m a book nerd. I love to read. I have a huge bookshelf in the office that won’t even hold all of my books. Plus, I have tons of books on my Nook. It’s one of my favorite ways to pass the time, and I love getting lost in a story. And, as… Read more →

Books About Crazy People

I have a thing about reading books from the perspective of people who aren’t necessarily all there in their mind. Not that there’s anything wrong with them. I just think they have a more interesting perspective than the average person. I really enjoy being pulled from my normal way of thinking into these strange ways. One of my favorites is… Read more →

A Fictional Vacation

If I could visit any fictional setting in the history of literature, I would head to Diagon Alley. When I was 10, I started reading the books. Immediately, I fell in love with these magical people and place. I can’t even begin to describe the disappointment I felt when my 11th birthday rolled around, and there was no owl with… Read more →

Total Book Nerd

I admit it: I am a book nerd. I love to read. There is nothing quite like the smell of a brand new book. Except maybe the smell of a really old book! I haunt used book stores, and I love hanging out at Barnes and Noble. I am always reading new stuff, and rereading the stories that I loved.… Read more →
