I Recently Finished Reading: Lightning

I really enjoyed the Odd Thomas series by Deam Koontz, so when I was looking for a stand-alone novel to read, I thought I'd give another Koontz novel a try. I did a bit of research and found that Lightning and Watchers are often considered some of his best works. I generally don't read synopses … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Lightning

I Recently Finished Reading: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

This book has long been one of my favorites. I don't remember the first time I read it, but I know I was still in elementary school. I've read it several times over the years, and I always find it enjoyable. At its core, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is a fairy tale. A little … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz

I Recently Finished Reading: Way Station

I picked up this book when I first started going through the Hugo Awards, and I remember that it really changed my perspective on what science fiction could be. This was the first sci-fi novel I had read that was more about ideas than about story. Way Station focuses on a single man maintaining a … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Way Station

I knew that Morning Star would be concluding the series, so I looked forward to seeing how everything wrapped up. The book … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Morning Star

I Recently Finished Reading: The Curse of Chalion

I think this was the first Bujold book I ever read. I was working my way through the Hugo awards and had The Paladin of Souls coming up. I knew that it was the second book in Bujold's Five Gods series, and I didn't want to miss anything important, so I read this first. Going … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: The Curse of Chalion

I Recently Finished Reading: Rocket Ship Galileo

I was about a third of the way through this book when I started wondering when it was published. It was clear that it was one of Heinlein's earlier works, both because of the kind of technology he was describing in the book, as well as the social issues that Heinlein invariably brings up. I … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Rocket Ship Galileo

I Recently Finished Reading: Night of the Soul Stealer

I went through this book really fast, listening to the entire audiobook in two or three days. I'm really not sure if it's because the book is short or if it's because it was really engaging. Book three in the series has Tom and his master moving to a different town for the winter. I … Continue reading I Recently Finished Reading: Night of the Soul Stealer
