2020 Reading Challenge

Kudos to me for meeting--actually surpassing my 2019 reading goal...by 1 book, but it counts! For 2020 it's more of the same 52 books.  At one book a week, it should be doable.  As usual I make no promises to myself or anyone else, lol!  I've made a tentative list.  Tentative because I never really … Continue reading 2020 Reading Challenge

2019 Reading Challenge

Didn't quite meet the goal in 2018, but that's never stopped me from trying again. Same goal as last year, 52 books. With my buying ban, once again, firmly in place, I plan to [attempt] to read books that I currently own or library books. As always, I make no promises to myself, or anyone … Continue reading 2019 Reading Challenge

Review: Inside Jobs

Review: This was one of the audible monthly free listens.  I listened to this at work while binning and while I would love to say I couldn't focus on it because of the job, that's not the case.  It was a fun-ish listen; the stories had some comedy, and intrigue that made me laugh or … Continue reading Review: Inside Jobs

Review: How To Defeat A Demon King

Review: A fun listen.  I very much enjoyed the story, the adventure.  The characters were great, very likeable.  This was a different kind of story for me.  This is what I imagine playing and MMO is like.  All around good fun.  I would definitely listen to another adventure like this.

I’m doing some recon and need assistance…

...has anyone tried scribd.com or libro.fm?  If so, what are your thoughts? I'm probably going to keep audible for the audible exclusives (I'm on a special membership that only gets credits every other month so they're not getting as much of my money as they could), but I've been saying for ages that I'm always … Continue reading I’m doing some recon and need assistance…

Review: Happy Doomsday – DNF

Review: DNF!   This was tough to get through from the start. It was a little too heavy and intense, not at all what I was expecting. Then the protagonist locked a seeing eye dog inside a room to die of thirst and starvation alone and that was too much for me. This one is … Continue reading Review: Happy Doomsday – DNF

Review: Watchers

Review: So my first experience with this story is the Corey from the late 80s early 90s. I loved it and when I realized it was based on a novel it was immediately added to my TBR.  I listened to the audiobook version and the narrator brought Fur Face to life. And yes, I realize … Continue reading Review: Watchers

Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde, Book 1

Review: This was a fun listen during my commute to/from work today and a nice bit of escapism.  The action starts off almost immediately and continues practically non-stop to the finish.   The story follows Xander a 16-year-old living at a military instillation at the behest of his older brother, Moto, an enlisted man.  Moto … Continue reading Zombie Attack! Rise of the Horde, Book 1

Dewey’s Read-a-thon [April 2020]: Hours 19-24

Mental/Physical Update: I tried, but failed to make it to hour 24. Excuses, excuses, but A girl was just exhausted. I had a good time. I napped a bit at hour 20, then struggled to focus on reading. I got a second wind and got some reading in but it was slow going. Right around … Continue reading Dewey’s Read-a-thon [April 2020]: Hours 19-24

Dewey’s Read-a-thon [April 2020]: Hours 13-18

Mental/Physical Update: Starting to have trouble with concentration now. I was doing well until about 1:30-2. With having a not-so-great night of sleep, the struggle will be real now.

Review: World War Moo

Review: This was...wowzers.  It was a very good sequel.  I'm not sure how I feel about that ending, but I also do not think it could have ended any other way.   Note To Self: Write a better review after the readathon. Original post: Virago77.booklikes.com/post/2373338/review-world-war-moo
