Book Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

For a bunch of hairless apes, we’ve actually managed to invent some pretty incredible things. Computers. Medicine. Lasers. Microwave ovens. Artificial hearts. Atomic bombs.  Book Rating 4/5 Book Review As you all know, Ready Player One has recently come out in theaters, so obviously I needed to get the book read as soon as possible.…

Book Review: The Punch Escrow by Tal M. Klein

Teleportation is the safest form of transportation. Book Rating 4/5 Book Review Wow! I am blown away by The Punch Escrow. This is, self described, as a “hard” science fiction novel. I think, after reading this and Dark Matter, I am a “hard” sci fi fan. I have loved both of the hard sci fi…

Book Review: The Wife Between Us

“Even when I’m not there, I’m always with you.” Book Rating 4/5 Book Review Wow…this book took me for quite the spin! It was the perfect book with a little wine and a comfortable bed.

Book Review: Every Day by David Levithan

Book Rating: 5/5 Book Review: This is what love does: It makes you want to rewrite the world. It makes you want to choose the characters, build the scenery, guide the plot. The person you love sits across from you, and you want to do everything in your power to make it possible, endlessly possible.…

Book Review: Into the Water by Paula Hawkins

Book Rating: 3/5 Book Review: I can’t say I truly enjoyed this book. I found it difficult to get through, and most of the characters unlikable to a point of nonredeemable. Into the Water is a good enough read, but I simply didn’t love it. Paula Hawkins is talented enough to where she sets a…
