2018 Reading Challenge

I epically failed my 2017 reading challenge for so many reasons, but I’m not going to list excuses.  I failed, that’s all there is to it.  My yearly goal is always 52 books–one per week– and I plan to stick to that goal.  However, I’m only setting aside about half of that for the Beat…

Feets are Free!

    So I saw my doctor for what will be the final time (as long as I don’t injure myself again). He says the metatarsals are healing nicely, they are lined up as the should be. The pain is just fron where the break is, and the fact that the healing process takes longer…

Review: What The Hell Did I Just Read

Review: I feel like I say this every time I review a book from this series, but this was an exercise in insanity!   Let me start by saying, there’s only so much I can say without spoiling.  I’m about to say something that may be of an unpopular opinion; I don’t know because I…

Trying, But it’s Hard

So after being basically immobile for nearly six months, I am finally trying to do something with the hot mess that is my bedroom.  And do you know what I have found?  Being injured sucks on sooooo many levels.     My toes still hurt, so walking around for almost any period of time just sucks. …

Still a Slacker…

…so many things I’ve been meaning to post about. I recently went to comic con, got my boot off, got some books…  I’ll returm with a full rundown. Mostly I just wanted to say, “Hey all, it’s been a while.” Original post: Virago77.booklikes.com/post/1763141/still-a-slacker

April 2018 Read-a-thon: Wrap-Up

So here I am several days late with my Read-a-thon wrap-up.  It’s pretty typical for me, lol! So here’s my completed stack of books: Saga: Volume 4 by Brian K. Vaughn Saga: Volume 5 by Brian K. Vaughn Saga: Volume 6 by Brian K. Vaughn The Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks by Max Brooks Army…

Review: Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto: Volume 1

Review: Excellent!  It’s just like the anime.  Sakamoto is this ridiculous character that everyone either loves or hates.  He’s great a literally everything.  So much so that even the people who hate him for it, eventually begin to fawn over him like the people who love him.   We literally know nothing about him other…

April 2018 Read-a-thon: Hours 17-20

I’ve made it this far, but I’m wondering if I can make it to the homestretch.  I’ve completed 6 books and am up to 1154 pages read.  I’m tired, but I feel like I can make it a while longer. My butt-head cat, Leeloo has finally joined me and is lying in the most inconvenient…

Review: The Evil Dead

Review: So, didn’t love it as much as I thought I would.  This was a no-quite-accurate telling of the original Evil Dead movie.  There weer added/expanded scenes, which were good, but that changed a bit of the continuity of the original story, which wasn’t good.  The made all the girls look like they were dressed…

Review: Army Of Darkness: Omnibus, Volume 1

Review: This was a beast!  It’s broken into five sections and each one tells the story of Ash’s shenanigans with the Necronomicon, deadites, Evil Ash and time travel.     This has been a treat to read!  It is full of time travel, Ash goobering up his one task to destroy the book over and…

April 2018 Read-a-thon: Hours 13-16

It’s midnight here and I soldier on.  I’m still reading Army of Darkness.  I tried to take a nap, but sleep just wouldn’t come.  I think because I tried to force it and didn’t just let it happen organically.  Oh well.  I’m at least halfway through the Omnibus and am enjoying the heck out of…
