Bookish Blerd

I'm a book buying junkie who buys books faster than I can read them. But what better way is there to live than surrounded by books?! I read as much as I can and I do my best to give coherent reviews...which doesn't always happen.  I enjoy many genres, which is likely the reason I struggle with deciding my next read.

Review: Head On

Head On (Lock In #2) - John Scalzi, Wil Wheaton

This was a fantastic sequel to Lock In.  Crime, mystery, suspense, humor and a little scifi.  Scalzi is an incredible story teller.  I really like the characters and the story held my attention.


Two favorite parts: 1) Wheaton is a phenomenal narrator.  I would listen to most things he narrated.  2) A large part of this story takes place in my hometown, Philly.  Scalzi was spot on with his representation. He got the mannerism,  the streets, sections of town all down perfectly.  It felt like he was a Philly native, which I appreciated so much!


This was a really fun story and I hope he continues with the series.  I really enjoy going on adventures with Agents Shane and Van!
