The first month of 2019 is over and, I don’t know about you, but it has been one of my least successful blogging and reading months to date. I’m not sure if it was the abnormally cold weather or the gloom I usually get at the start of a new year but I just didn’t have the mojo. Let’s take a look back at what little happened here at Literary Weaponry over the past month.Continue reading

I’m going to be straight up honest with you folks. I picked this book up as audio on Audible on a whim when I had a very long drive ahead of me and didn’t want to listen to kids music the whole trip with my daughter.
