TV Review: Game of Thrones Season 3

Season 3 of Game of Thrones brought a few surprises. Season 2 exploded the playing board with six kings south of the wall, and one to the north. This made things a little confusing, but luckily things start to tighten up in season 3. By the end of this season two players are out of the game and another is really no […]

Book Review: Under the Dome

I picked up this book after watching the first season of the TV series inspired by this concept. I originally thought it was based on the book, but the more I read, the more I realized that “inspired by” is far more correct. If you’ve seen the TV series, you know it’s a survival story. […]

Game of Thrones Season 2

I finished the second season of Game of Thrones over the weekend. Season 3 is in the mail! (Netflix DVD) Season 2 got off to a rough start, in my opinion. As a matter of fact, book 2 is when I stopped reading the books, and I was close to dropping the series for many of […]

It was kind of nice to see Krentz stepping back from her paranormal series. This was a typical mainstream mystery, complete with sociopaths and serial killers. I enjoyed the suspense and mystery of it … right up until the reveal. It’s tough to review mysteries because so often the problem is with the ending, and […]
