About

My name is Greg and this is where I talk about books, films and anything else that comes to mind. I've always been an avid reader and I enjoy promoting authors and discussing my favorite books with others. I also do freelance writing and have written for the Knights of the Dinner Table magazine and the SF blog SFSignal

I grew up reading the Hardy Boys and moved on from there to fantasy and SF. Edgar Rice Burroughs and JRR Tolkien were huge influences. I love fantasy and a good dystopian. I never met a used bookstore I didn't like. I do occasional Bookstore Spotlights as well, to bring attention to some of the indie bookstores in the area.

My other interests include music, traveling and writing the kinds of stories I like to read.

I've recently added a star rating system to my reviews, just to give a better sense of how I feel about a book. Here's my scale.

 5 stars - Excellent, one of my favorite books

4 stars - Very good, possibly a favorite, and definitely a book I recommend and/ or re- read. A step above the usual.

3 stars - most books will be rated 3 here. This is a good book, one I may recommend and it may just not have made it to the next level for whatever reason.

2 stars - I didn't care for this book, it may still have appeal for someone else, but not my thing.

1 star - Dracarys

  1. When I was a kid, I loved Trixie Belden! I even wanted to change my name to Trixie, and I made my family call me that for at least a month. Lol.

  2. Hi Greg :)
    I thought I'd pop you a message to tell you I’ve nominated you for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award! I figure "sisterhood" is a relative term, lol. Here’s the link: http://www.anovelstart.com/sisterhood-of-the-world-bloggers-award/
    I figured it's something a little different lol. It's my first award so just leave me a note if you don't want to be linked again. I wasn't sure if you did them or not but thought what the hell :) why not?
    Enjoy x
