All Flesh Is Grass by Clifford D. Simak

The review







The Chameleon’s Shadow by Minette Walters

I love reading books by this author because they portray human interaction in all its forms. They bring out what most of us would prefer that it remained hidden the darkest corners of her hearts. The stories show how people are capable of kindness in the unlikeliest of situations. But they also show what we’d do when we think no one is watching. With issues like the mistreatment of transgenderschild rape, and oppression of women, these stories hit you like a sledgehammer. You realize there is nothing fictional about her fiction. This story is no different. It deals with the fragmentation of a person’s psyche after returning home from a war. War breaks something inside you, no matter which side you are on.







Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green

Really fun book!





The Tough Guide to Fantasyland by Diana Wynne Jones

I don’t remember much about this one but the fact that it makes fun of everything that has become cliché in epic fantasy.








Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris

Sedaris books are funny af.







How Gods Bleed by Shane Porteous

An old review:


Loved this book!
the book is about people belonging to a city that is the first line of defense for humans. If the werewolves ever tried to take over the human empire, this would be where the first battle would take place. Naturally, the people living in such a place have to be extraordinary-always alert and ready to defend. Add to that a king who would do anything to ensure his people’s survival and warriors who worship him. Could it be more awesome?Yes, it can. The king not only wants to win every war, he also plans to make the werewolves fear him and his warriors. The tricks and maneuvers that the king uses to instill fear in the werewolves are just.. wow! Then there is Cada Varl- the coolest immortal you’ll ever read about. He’s the best and yet he never gloats but just goes on being his rockin’ self! And of course, the 6 Helluvan warriors (poor 7th best warrior) were just that..one helluva adventure!





Zombie Killa by Jason Z. Christie

I got this book for free from Making Connections to read and review:
I started the book and almost gave up right then. Not only did it start slow-but then Shaun of the Dead did too-it also had a lot of jargon and big nerdy words that I couldn’t get at all. And the first mention of Router wasn’t all that, either. Then the book picked up its pace and proved me wrong. Zombies, Pirates, Ninjas, Nerds, Smart-mouthed women..the story had everything! And it was exactly the right length. The humor was just my type and despite some (okay, many) references that I didn’t get, I loved it! Zombie fans, you just can’t miss this one!

Oh, I almost forgot “F**k you, High-C!”

Clifford's Manners
Clifford's Manners (Clifford 8x8) - Norman Bridwell

This story is about how well behaved Clifford is and how he is so loved because of it. This book tells about many, many good manners. One thing that I like about this book is how out in the margins of the pages it list the manner that is also in the story on that page. This is a great book for younger students. You could read this at the beginning of the year and have a class discussion about the types of manners and behaviors you expected.

Clifford's Teacher's Pets - Norman Bridwell
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

This is an adaption of an episode from the TV series. 

A cute story with a very nice ending. I liked the moral at the end of the story about trying your hardest and doing the best you can. 

Simple story that is a bit repetitive, but still a good read.

Not recommended
Spider Legs - Clifford A. Pickover,Piers Anthony


A very unsatisfactory ending.

The last 'fight' scene with spider was incredibly tedious, if a bit gross.

evaginate is a new word for me and the images it invokes make me laugh.

Reading progress update: I've read 80%.
Spider Legs - Clifford A. Pickover,Piers Anthony


 Still skimming, though the info dumps have mostly taken a pause for some action.


We have two bouts of extreme hypothermia that were recovered from unbelievably fast, and a kid had his intestines sucked out through his abdomen.  'Bout damn time.


We also have another budding romance.
