Book Review: Little Fires Everywhere

For my first book of 2018, I have to say I'm incredibly conflicted by Little Fires Everywhere. It's one of those novels that challenged me at every page turn. Little Fires Everywhere is a story about a neighborhood outside Cleveland that reminds me so much of a place I've lived for the last decade. It's perfectly manicured, expertly planned, and developed with an idea that you can create a perfect community. And whether you believe that this community is real, there's no doubt that there are always little fires everywhere.

2017 Reading Challenge: Completed My Goal of Reading 30 Books

I love to read. I genuinely get just as excited about a new book as I do a new video, tv show, or movie. It's the one thing that keeps me sane on my drives to and from work every day. I also like to push myself to read books out of my comfort zone. To both enjoy fantastic fantasy worlds but also read about history and culture. Although I don't always accomplish that I will say that 2017 was a solid year of reading and by mid-December, I completed my goal of reading 30 books for the year.

Book Review: Uncommon Type: Some Stories

I love Tom Hanks. I've never really thought about who my favorite actor/actress is but I think if I did I would probably put Tom Hanks as #1. So, when I heard that he wrote a book of short stories I immediately pre-ordered it. I've grown to love books of short stories this year and Uncommon Type: Some Stories is both the best and at times worst of a book of short stories.

Book Review: Beneath a Scarlet Sky

I try to read a variety of genres, but one of my favorites is historical fiction. I'm a sucker for a good World War II book, even if there are hundreds if not thousands of good ones. When I first read the synopsis about Beneath a Scarlet Sky by Mark T. Sullivan I'll admit I passed on it. But I kept seeing it come up on lists of best books of the year and eventually I just broke down and bought it.

Book Review: We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy

I blind bought We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy without hearing or reading anything on it. That was a mistake. Not because it's a bad book, because its far from that, but because its a collection of Coates essays through Obama's eight years in office that he wrote for The Atlantic. Unfortunately, I had already read a couple of them before picking up this book.
