Book Review: Beartown by Fredrik Backman

Another morning comes. It always does. Time always moves at the same rate, only feelings have different speeds. Every day can mark a whole lifetime or a single heartbeat, depending on who you spend it with. Book Rating 3.5/5 Book Review I love Backman’s A Man Called Ove. It was outstanding; everything about that book…

Book Review: House of Suns by Alastair Reynolds

You are a bookworm who has tunneled through the pages of history. Is that not so? Book Rating 4.5/5 Book Review House of Suns is classified as a “space opera”.

Book Review: The Defining Decade by Meg Jay

Forget about having an identity crisis and get some identity capital. Do something that adds value to who you are. Do something that’s an investment in who you might want to be next. Book Rating 3.5/5 Book Review The Defining Decade was the kick in the butt I needed, but the one I didn’t quite…

Book Review: Children of Eden by Joey Graceffa

Book Rating 3.5/5 Book Review I listened to Children of Eden on Audible. Full disclosure, I have no idea who Joey Graceffa is and have never watched a video by him, I only knew he was a YouTuber after I rated the book on Goodreads and read a couple reviews to see what other people…
