Discussion:  Romance Tropes & Traps

Help! I’m stuck in a Romance Trope! (Okay, not really…I just like being dramatic) My actual love life reads like a typical epilogue.  Girl meets Boy though friends, get married, and then moves to the suburbs with their Labrador puppy.  But ever think what your life would be like if you were living an actual romance trope?  I’m not talking least or most favorite tropes to read.  I’m talking tropes you’d either […]

So I Read a Sci-Fi Book… Thoughts on Illuminae!

I read “Illuminae” as part of my self-imposed 2018 reading challenge.  At the beginning of the year, I identified 12 types of books I wanted to read more of, and resolved to check-one of the list each month.   January was all about trying something Sci-Fi!  Despite an undying love for all book’s Star Wars related when I was younger, I haven’t laid hands on a sci-fi book in over […]
