Judging A Book By Its Cover: The Night Circus

This is my weekly post where I highlight beautiful books from my collection. We all judge book covers to some extent (don’t lie, you totally do!) I created this feature to showcase and admire the art and design elements of some of the books I own. If covers didn’t matter, publishers wouldn’t make so many wonderful editions!

My Favorite Scenes From The Hobbit

Look, no one needs another damn review of The Hobbit. If you haven’t heard of the book or heard/read someone’s opinion on it, you can throw a virtual stone on any literary website and probably find more reviews, articles, and homages than you could shake a stick (virtual or otherwise) at. So instead I’m going to talk about some of my favorite scenes – the ones that keep me rereading this book every year!

Book Review: Hollow Kindgom

Hollow Kingdom
By Kira Jane Buxton

My Edition:
Hardcover, 308 pages
2019, Grand Central Publishing
ISBN: 9781538745823

S.T. (that’s short for Shit Turd) is a domesticated crow and he finds himself out on a crazy adventure in the wide world when his best friend, and owner, Big Jim, comes down sick and needs some help. S.T. considers himself a human and feels disconnected from the animal kingdom at large, so his only partner on this adventure is Big Jim’s big, dumb dog, Dennis. The two set out to find a cure and S.T. learns he can rely on Dennis and his own wild instincts. But can they fix what’s wrong with Big Jim and the other humans?

This book has re-defined the post-apocalyptic/zombie genre for me and I couldn’t be more thrilled!
