BotW: The Ocean at the End of the Lane

It's Sunday! Welcome to another edition of Book of the Week! First one for September!  Holy cow! We only have 4 months left in 2016...and what a year it has been.   This book is absolutely one of my favorites that I've read this week, and I will probably end up re-reading it over and over again.  

The Ocean at the End of the Lane
Neil Gaiman

This is one of my favorite books and honestly I'm usually so comforted by Neil Gaiman's works...even Sandman.  I love his storytelling and the stories that he's crafted in each of his books.  They are something that I always go back to time and time again.  I've even got a re-read of American Gods in the works for either this month or next! 

What's your favorite Neil Gaiman book?

August In Review

Holy crap.  Where has this year gone? No, seriously...someone tell me where this year has gone?!! It so cannot be the first of September! So, August was a bit of an up and down month.  Nothing really happened after the 24th, and for that I blame a rather annoying bought of depression.  However, things are slowly working toward the upward swing of things and I am hoping to be able to devote quite a bit more to catching up with my reviews...because I'm behind...a lot. 

Here are the highlights of this month:
