Science-fiction is probably the genre I pick up the least often (aside from those I don't touch at all, obviously...) because I don't consider myself "technically" minded and thus inadequate to read it. Start talking to me about a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff, or the physics behind it and you will see my eyes simply glaze over.

I listened to this audiobook back in February, after listening to The Stand by Stephen King. I decided that listening to this book was probably going to be better than reading it; after listening to a sample, I knew it was the right decision!
I bought this last year, only a couple of months after its release and before I really got into social media with my blog, so any hype would have passed me by. I kept looking at it, again and again, vowing to read it soon but never making good on the promise until last month. When I shouldn't have done. When I didn't REALLY have time to. Oh well, the heart wants what the heart wants.
It has been an incredibly long time since I have read poetry. When I requested this book from Netgalley, the logic was that I would be reading something a little different. Goodreads - Beowulf Beowulf tells the story of a Scandinavian hero who defeats three evil creatures—a huge, cannibalistic ogre named Grendel, Grendel’s monstrous mother, and… Continue reading Book Review: Beowulf
