Knee-Deep in the Dead – Beginning of the Invasion

Another book is done! Writing this now reminds me of the time I tried to read another DOOM novel that took a different approach but I think this one is a much better story that is an ode to the classic games. There are four novels and this is the first one. https://m.media-amazon.com/images/I/51tD5y4zTcL.jpg The moment… Continue reading Knee-Deep in the Dead – Beginning of the Invasion

Alien Isolation – Lost in Sevastopol

This review is for the novelization of the video game, not the game itself. I've tried to finish the game before, the first time I didn't get very far because I was terrible at stealth. Convinced that I would never finish the game, I watched streamers play it and saw how it ended while it… Continue reading Alien Isolation – Lost in Sevastopol

Pride and Prejudice – Marriages For Each

I always like to check out classics, but they don't always work out for me and it's safe to say that this is one of them. Pride and Prejudice is a novel that's been around for a long time and has even been adapted into a film, which I did watch at some point but… Continue reading Pride and Prejudice – Marriages For Each

The Wise Man’s Fear – Stories Across The Four Corners

It only took me two months to finish reading this book. Most books that are a thousand pages long take more time than that. What can I say? I was eager to continue Kvothe's story that I didn't delay. A lot happens in this novel that fills in the blanks of the opening lines. Kvothe… Continue reading The Wise Man’s Fear – Stories Across The Four Corners

Out of Africa – Over-Detailed Memoirs

I love to read the original source of something that I watched. But, sometimes it doesn't live up to my expectations. Maybe I put too much faith in what I was exposed to first that the other version is going to blow my mind. Then when it doesn't I'm disappointed. After seeing the film and… Continue reading Out of Africa – Over-Detailed Memoirs

No Time To Cry – A Part Of Oneself

With that, I have completed Dawn Rochelle's journey at the final volume of this series (apparently, I think there's one more but I'm assuming this was meant to be the last). After Marlee's passing, we're back to focusing on Dawn herself more. She and Rhonda have started at a new high school as sophomores and… Continue reading No Time To Cry – A Part Of Oneself

So Much To Live For – Sisterly Bonds

We're back on Dawn Rochelle's journey. After her bone marrow transplant, she returns to the cancer camp as a counsellor this time. This was a much different take than the last volume and introduces several new characters such as Marlee, a girl with cancer still on chemo, and Brent, Sandy's brother. I'll admit when I… Continue reading So Much To Live For – Sisterly Bonds

I Want To Live – Don’t Ever Grow Up

Well, that's a wrap on the second book of the Dawn Rochelle series. This one was a lot shorter than its predecessor and I'm bouncing between it and the Kingkiller chronicles reading multiple books at once is something I stopped doing years ago, so I'm not sure why I'm doing it now! Anyway, it's been… Continue reading I Want To Live – Don’t Ever Grow Up

Six Months To Live – The Uncertain Future

This is a book that I read in high school. In the last two years there, I would often pick one period, other than lunchtime that I could spend in the resource room to either read, do some homework, or study for a test. I would often dig around for a book to read and… Continue reading Six Months To Live – The Uncertain Future

The Name of the Wind – Retelling of One Man’s Childhood

Another book complete, it always feels good to finish one, don't you agree? This book I received as a Christmas present and every night I would read several chapters, letting the corners of civilization absorb me. An interesting take about a man now turned innkeeper as he tells his story to a scribe of who… Continue reading The Name of the Wind – Retelling of One Man’s Childhood
