About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

If you haven’t read the original series, a lot of what happens here probably won’t make a lot of sense. Continue reading

These Witches Don’t Burn is both the debut novel for Isabel Sterling and the first novel in a new series (of the same name). So it had a lot riding on it. But based on the sales and how enjoyable this read was, I’m not worried about the future for this author or series. Continue reading

Review: The Suicide House by Charlie Donlea

The Suicide House is the second novel in Charlie Donlea’s Rory Moore/Lane Phillips series. Yet it could easily be read as a standalone novel as well (it worked for me). It is a thriller that will draw you in and demand your full attention. Continue reading

Can you believe it? Christopher Paolini is back, only this time he isn’t diving back into the world of fantasy! Instead, he’s taking a swing at science fiction. From the moment this book was announced, I knew that it was going to be one epic adventure. Continue reading
