Kingdom of the Cursed by Kerri Maniscalco

Kingdom of the Cursed, the second book in The Kingdom of the Wicked series by Kerri Maniscalco, is my first five-star read of the new year. I mean, I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series for a variety of reasons, so I had no doubts that I would also enjoy the sequel. Still, I was not expecting to love it as much as I did, and I am...

Sunday Reflections Button

Reading: Scorpica by Greer Macallister

Listening: Cosmos by Carl Sagan

Watching: Football! And The Witcher because I wanted to introduce Jim to it and refresh my memory before I started season two.

Cooking: The weather still warrants gut-warming weather, so I have red beans and rice on the menu. I also plan to make a chicken stir-fry and try a...

Decapitation has never been so fun
2022-01-13 16:00 UTC by Michelle

Kate McKinnon is by far my favorite SNL cast member, past or present. The way she becomes her character and is never afraid to go big reminds me so much of the original cast, when Dan Aykroyd blended a whole fish and John Belushi had a little too much fun with a prop samurai sword. So, when Heads Will Roll popped up as another “free”...

Rivals! Frenemies Who Changed the World by Scott McCormick

Rivals! Frenemies Who Changed the World by Scott McCormick was one of those monthly “freebies” Audible started offering subscribers two years ago. Sure, it took me two years to listen to it, but I enjoyed every second of it once I did. In roughly three hours, Mr. McCormick gives listeners amusing, jam-packed looks at four notable...

Empire of Sin by Gary Krist

New Orleans, Louisiana, has to be one of the more fascinating cities in the United States. Its European vibe, the amalgam of cultures, its decadence, and anything goes attitude make it a place to visit for many people. In reading Empire of Sin by Gary Krist, I hoped to learn more about the city’s past to bridge the gap in my knowledge of...

The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski

With the second season of The Witcher out on Netflix, I wanted to review the story via the original format, albeit a translated version. While I knew that The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski is a prequel to The Witcher Saga, I was not aware that it is a collection of stories. Nor did I expect the first season to follow those stories so closely.

Reading: Finishing up Empire of Sin by Gary Krist.

Listening: Classical music and trying to figure out my next audiobook. Do I choose something short and sweet to up my finished book count? Or something longer to avoid having to write a review quickly?

Watching: One guess — Yep, football! It’s playoff time, after all! And I do want...

Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo

Having read almost everything Leigh Bardugo wrote, I wanted to start 2022 reading her adult debut with her fantasy Ninth House. Not knowing what to expect other than magic and Ms. Bardugo’s excellent writing style, I discovered a unique story of loss and mystery. It took me a bit to get into Alex’s story, but I could not put it down...

Sunday Reflections Button

Happy Sunday! I thought I would shake things up a bit and change the format of my Sunday posts to make them a little easier to read and maybe a bit more interesting as well. Plus, change is good.

Reading: Empire of Sin by Gary Krist, a nonfiction account of New Orleans history during the Roaring Twenties before the end of the year. For the new...

New Year 2022

It’s been another year. While on the surface, 2021 was a better year for Jim and me personally and professionally, I look back on it and feel like it was a much more difficult year. It certainly was a much longer year than the last. It seems to have languished as much as everyone else on Earth.

I was going to list out everything I want to...
