[Blog Tour]Review: Up From the Sea by Leza Lowitz

I’ve been doing this thing over the past couple years where if I read a narrative told in a series of poems, I usually attempt to write a review in a similar way. Here goes nothing! Flipping through the pages. My heart racing, hoping Kai will survive. Hoping I will survive. Coping seems hard and […]

Blog Tour: Anna and the Swallow Man by Gavriel Savit

I don’t read a lot of historical fiction but I absolutely adore middle grade novels so when I heard about Anna and the Swallow Man, I knew I was going to have a lot of feels and would probably need a lot of tissues. The book; however, turned out to be not exactly what I […]

Random Things in Motion #2: Philosophizing Death (a.k.a.) How easy it is to say “die, you, villain, you!”

Okay, before you go away and run for the hills: no, this is not a philosophy lecture. I may touch a few on that, though. Just a tad bit.
