Gideon the Ninth

I always have a book to read for when I go to bed. However, since I tend to only go to bed when I’m tired, reading times can be drawn out. Gideon the Ninth, though, was entertaining and intriguing enough as I got into the latter half of the book it broke from the chains of my bedside table and I had my Kindle out and about with me to churn through it. I finished it last night during a bit of insomnia from 3am to 4:30am. But it was time well spent as I greatly enjoyed the story!

It’s a Sci-fi & Fantasy novel. It’s very unique and I greatly enjoyed unraveling the mysteries of the novel. Highly recommend if you’re wanting something punk-y.

5/5 animated space skeletons.

Seattle Prohibition

Seattle Prohibition: Bootleggers, Rumrunners and Graft in the Queen City is a great read that gave me insight into Seattle history that I knew nothing about. Fascinating stuff. If you want to read about an interesting person, look up Al Hubbard. 5 out of 5 moonshines.

Making It

Now finished with its second season and hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, this show is America’s answer to the Great British Bake Off. It’s a positive and joyful romp through crafting and creating. Light weight, it’s like a lemon sorbet for my soul which reinforces my desire to make 2020 my year of being a maker. 5 out of 5 glue guns.


My Netflix binge continues as I churn through this over just two days. It’s one part Zombieland, one part Mad Max, one part Adventureland, and one part Ferris Buehler’s Day Off.

3/5 Sunflowers.

Lost in Space (S2)

Netflix dropped season 2 of their Lost in Space series on Christmas and last night I finished it. I think I’d honestly prefer if the series was a monster of the week, more close to what the original had been. But, that said, I have really enjoyed the show and was engaged all through the second season. 4/5 space robots.

The Mandalorian

As much as I was underwhelmed by Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian was very much something I enjoyed. At first I was convinced it should have been a movie rather than a TV series (well, streaming series) but over the eight episodes of the first season, I realized the homage it was paying to the Westerns of old and I settled in to enjoy where it took me. 5 out of 5 Mandos.
