  1. Hope Griffin Diaz – North Carolina – So, to borrow from a popular shirt, I love Jesus but I cuss a little. Well, a lot. In fact, I just don't believe Jesus really gives a shit about the word 🤬 I am married to the love of my life, Louie (aka Luis) and have an adult child, Christy. Reading transports me to places that are inaccessible to me right now. Whether those places address in space or in areas I'm unable to travel, I am grateful for books and authors who keep my mind occupied. I fancy myself an amateur gardener, I am owned by a large black purr machine maine coon cat named Samwise aka #SamSam and a Border Collie/Australian Cattle dog mix named Daisy. I knit. I craft. I sew. These are at my leisure and are hobbies. I don't take commissions nor do I do alterations. I'm an aspiring human being. I battle several mental illnesses including depression, major panic disorder, agoraphobia, germaphobia, claustrophobia, and some other assorted illnesses. I also have fibromyalgia and have had numerous traumatic brain injuries (into the double digits now). I am not able to drive at night.

  3. I first read the Hemstreet as The Gor Peak and, God help me, I was curious.

    Speaking of guilty pleasures, I do want to read the new Monster Hunters book. They’re fun action reads. I tried the first of the sub-series by John Ringo and hoo boy was that a bad book.

  4. Eagerly looking forward to reading The Other Land by Sarah Rees Brennan when it
    arrives Tuesday. Kij Johnson has been a favorite since her unforgettable “Ponies”. Oooh, and a new Kathe Koja. This is a GOOD week.

  5. You don’t like any of Bova’s work? He’s done quite a bit.

    In general, though, you’re allowed to like or not like whoever you want. No skin off anyone else’s nose.

  6. The Sarah Rees Brennan is an expanded version of The Turn of the Story, which was a delight the first time and I can’t wait to see it now.
