Seven years ago, the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a “mockumentary” bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. It was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy.

Now, a new crew has been assembled. But this time they’re not out to entertain. Some seek to validate their life’s work. Some seek the greatest hunt of all. Some seek the truth. But for the ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart this is a voyage to uncover the fate of the sister she lost. Continue reading

Throwback Thursday –  Odd Thomas (Odd Thomas #1) by Dean Koontz

throwbackthursday

Renee began Throwback Thursday at Its Book Talk as a way to share some of her old favorites as well as sharing books that she wants to read that were published over a year ago. Books that were published over a year ago are almost always easier to find at libraries or at a discounted sale price. As I have been sifting through my TBR list and purging those books that no longer hold my interest, I came across several from years past that I’d love to share with you! Continue reading

Top Ten Tuesday – Halloween Freebie!

b9791-toptentuesday2

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they provide a topic and you are free to use that topic and/or variations of that topic to make your top ten list. You don’t have to do all ten. Instead you can do three, five, fifteen, whatever you want. A full list of the weekly themes can be found here.

This week’s theme is a Halloween Freebie! Happy Halloween! Let your creativity run wild with a themed post to celebrate! I must admit, I have never been terribly into Halloween. Sure, as a kid it was fun, but as an adult I must admit it was just fun to hang up a few decorations and light a few autumn themed candle. Now that I have a kiddo to take trick or treating it has certainly taken on a different light. In fact, I just finished sewing her costume. Now, lets see where this Halloween theme takes us, shall we?
