I don't know about you, but I currently read more books per month than my posting schedule allows. (What a wonderful problem to have!) I personally settled on my four posts per week schedule because I thrive on schedules and as a mood writer it was the easiest way for me to ensure a consistent stream of content. But I've found myself almost "playing favorites" for deciding which reviews I post and I wonder if there's a better way.
An engrossing space opera that is a high octane fight for survival set in space with vibes from Firely and a bit of Undercover Boss. Buckle in and get ready for an adventure! Continue Reading
Halloween is literally my favorite day of the year so I was so excited when Amy tagged me! As soon as October 1 rolls around my apartment is totally decked out in decorations and I watch pretty much nothing but horror movies.

Friends, this book absolutely blew me away. Contagion was one of my most anticipated releases and one that surpassed my expectations completely. This is hands-down one of my favorite reads of 2018.
Fun fact: when I was in the eighth grade I borrowed my grandmother's copy of The Hot Zone: The Terrifying True Story of the Origins of the Ebola Virus by Richard Preston and decided that I wanted to be a microbiologist so I could work with contagious hot diseases for the CDC. Continue reading

I've decided to take part in my first ever read-a-thon this weekend because I like a good challenge & wanted to incentivize my reading!
"For every woman who has been told to sit down and be quiet...and has stood up anyway." Yes this quote is from the dedication, but it really sums up what this book is all about in 18 words.
