The Expanse | A Rambling Diatribe about the Books & TV Show

expanse-julie

I’ve been asked about 400 times (okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration) about my opinions regarding The Expanse so far. I just finished the third book in the series, Abaddon’s Gate, last night, so I figured I’d pop over here and write a little bit about my insights regarding the TV show and the series. It’s …

Most Anticipated Books of 2016

It’s that time of year again. It’s time for lists. I almost hate making most anticipated lists as much as I hate making best book lists. It’s so hard to narrow it down to something manageable. Let me just say this, this list is in no particular order, and I absolutely am leaving books off …

An Update… the good kind. Also, The Expanse, and The Force Awakens

Well, this is going to be a bit rambly. You’ve been warned. — Last week I was silent. I spent about 90% of my week in the hospital getting a whole bucketload of tests done. I was sicker than words can possibly describe, and just barely hanging on. It was horrible. However, Friday I had …
