Happy Father’s Day!

I met my husband when we were still in college. We started off as friends and I learned he was a reader too, but I learned he was a big Sci-Fi/Fantasy reader. I had not really read any SFF. (I was a Lit major, so Classics were my jam.) But I wanted him to like me, so I asked what his favorite book was which was Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, but he had me read Monkey Sonatas first. When I did, I wasn’t sure if I’d like SF. 😅 Then he had me read Ender’s Game and I loved it. .

Fast forward seven years after we met, we got married. He let me plan our wedding but insisted on only one thing: his wedding ring had to be white-gold. He said it was because of the Thomas Covenant series by Stephen R. Donaldson.


When coming up with a name for our oldest son, we decided to name him after one of my husband’s favorite authors Isaac Asimov. 


Last year, he finished the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan and I felt bad that he had to say goodbye to a story and characters that were in his life for nearly twenty years. 


Happy Father’s Day to my husband! I’m so lucky to have a partner who enjoys reading and also who puts up with my book hoarding and bookstagramming shenanigans. ❤️

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday everyone!! I hope you’ve had a fabulous weekend so far. I saw Wonder Woman last night and I’m ready to see it again! It lived up to the hype and more! If you haven’t seen it yet, I hope you get to soon! It’s worth the trip out to see it in the theater. .

What are your plans for today? I’m going to an author signing with Maurene Goo who wrote I Believe in a Thing Called Love, Cindy Pon whose new book Want comes out Tuesday, and Sherri L. Smith who wrote Pasadena. I’m excited to meet these awesome ladies!


So how are you? What have you been up to? Me? Trying to survive the end of the school year with my kids (4 more days) and LOTS of reading.

Checking in! 

I just wanted to sneak in here to thank everyone who messaged and texted me just to check on me. My family was battling the flu. We’re a family of six, so by day’s end I was exhausted! And with the cloudy and rainy weather, there wasn’t much opportunity for pictures either. .Yesterday, I had to take my husband to the ER for what turned out to be a kidney stone. He’s okay now but we’re trying to rest and recover from the event. .

I’m hoping this will be the end of illnesses and trips to the ER and that big things really don’t happen in threes and we can move on to February without incident. I can’t believe it’s going to be February already!


How are you all doing? I hope your January was better than mine! During all the family illnesses, I did manage to get some reading done. Thank goodness for audio books! I’ll share a wrap-up soon. .

I found this plaque at the dollar store and thought it was so fitting for my current situation. I hope to post more often now and thank you again for the concerned messages! Miss you all. ❤️
