She falls back in time to 1895 and meets Strat, the son of a stereotypical Gilded Age tycoon, who is painfully prim and proper.… Continue reading Flashbook Friday: Out of Time
Welcome to my first Flashbook Friday! What books from childhood stick out in your mind? Which books did you obsess over? Which books did you feverishly finish in a marathon frenzy? Which books are dog-eared and beaten up from numerous rereads? Which books do you still think back on and say, “Damn, that was a… Continue reading Flashbook Friday: Both Sides Of Time
What the hell is a tsundokuholic??? Hello and welcome to my very first blog post! If you’re asking yourself, “What in the hell is a tsundokuholic? That sounds like a made up word!” you’d be correct. Well, tsundoku is an actual word; I turned it into a condition. A quick Google search will yield the… Continue reading Word Nerd Wednesday: What the Hell’s a Tsundokuholic?
