Michael's Book Babble

I'm an indie author and a scribbler of inane babble. I talk about books I've read/liked. Or at least, that's the plan.


Most of the reviews will be considered "mini-reviews." Usually, it's mostly my reaction to what I've been reading. There are people who are far better at doing full and helpful reviews. But I still have fun doing them, and hope you enjoy them!

Reading progress update: I've read 82 out of 269 pages.

Everything That Rises Must Converge - Flannery O'Connor, Robert Fitzgerald

A View of the Woods


Holy crap. Deliciously brutal and ruthless. Loved, loved, loved this story. What a dark and unsettling collection so far--which is exactly what I want when I read something by O'Connor.


This has the makings of being a new favorite collection. Already ordered the paperback copy based off of these first three stories alone.
