How I celebrated Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving for expats living in the US is a little different than what is considered traditional. In this post I’ll tell you all about how my Thanksgiving went this year! The first thing that’s definitely different from most traditional Thanksgiving celebrations is that we have zero family living in the US with us. On the one hand it saves us a lot of travel. On the other hand we also never have guests to cook for. This makes for a pretty quiet Thanksgiving most of the time. With that said, every year we always do a Dutch Thanksgiving celebration with…

The Queen of Nothing Review

The Queen of Nothing was one of my most anticipated releases for this year, so as soon as I got my hands on a copy I sped through it.

All of the stories listed in this post can be found in either the Wesleyan Anthology of Science Fiction or volume 1 of the Science Fiction Hall of Fame. The Machine Stops – E.M. Forster “Imagine,…

Tag: Anticipated Releases Book Tag

Hello book friends! Time for another tag. I found this one over at Starlightbooktales (originally made by A Little Haze Book Blog), and it looked fun! It’s a not-so typical anticipated releases tag, so I’m excited for it. Hope you enjoy reading! Your most anticipated book of the year An Anticipated Releases tag seems kind of strange to do in November… So it’s a good thing my most anticipated releases of the entire year come out this month! It’s a tie between The Queen of Nothing and Starsight! I think I’m equally excited for both. Fun fact: I’m pretty sure…
