Then again, I also ventured into genres I normally wouldn’t like horror and science fiction, although that was mostly due to school.
So here are a couple of things I considered in compiling this list. 1) My initial reaction to the book, meaning how much I enjoyed reading it. And 2) How often do I think about this book in the time after I read it. In other words, its lasting impact on me. So, let’s get started! Continue reading
In case you didn’t know, I live in South Florida. That means that our seasons is hot, blazing hot, and three days of cold. Mind you, anything below 70 is cold for us. As much as I’m convinced I’ll never be able to live in colder climates longer than a week, I do like reading about them. Perhaps because I have no idea what it would be like to live in such a place. So here’s a list of stories with some snowy weather. Continue reading
Inspired by last week’s Top 5 Wednesday prompt on “Naughty Characters” here is a list of five characters on my nice list this year. They’re not in any particular order.
I tried picking characters from books, TV shows, and movies I consumed this year. Continue reading
