Agents of Dreamland

Summary

A government special agent known only as the Signalman gets off a train on a stunningly hot morning in Winslow, Arizona. Later that day he meets a woman in a diner to exchange information about an event that happened a week earlier for which neither has an explanation, but which haunts the Signalman.

In a ranch house near the shore of the Salton Sea a cult leader gathers up the weak and susceptible—the Children of the Next Level—and offers them something to believe in and a chance for transcendence. The future is coming and they will help to usher it in.

A day after the events at the ranch house which disturbed the Signalman so deeply that he and his government sought out help from ‘other’ sources, Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory abruptly loses contact with NASA’s interplanetary probe New Horizons. Something out beyond the orbit of Pluto has made contact.

And a woman floating outside of time looks to the future and the past for answers to what can save humanity.

Recap: February 2017

February AKA the month that broke me. A month that started out well with me reading quite a few great books and ended even better with me obsessing over Shades of Magic (watch me still doing it all through March) and being a complete and utter mess because IT’S OVER. GOODBYE. NO MORE KELL AND LILA AND HOLLAND AND RHY AND ALUCARD *sobs*

Recap: January 2017

Oh man, nothing motivates me more than setting my new Goodreads reading challenge goal and starting new spreadsheets (yes, there are multiple, not just one). So I finally put an end to the reading slump and read all them books.

All them books

January was a CRAZY reading month because I started SO MANY books and didn’t end up finishing as much as I could have. which sounds wrong considering the amount of books I did finish BUT that’s just due to all the audiobooks I managed to listen to (which don’t take up any of my usual reading time).

Top Ten Favorite Comics

Top Ten Tuesday

(Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish)

I’m trying really hard (but fail) not to get too much into comics and limit myself in the number of series I read because comics = $$$. So there aren’t that many comics/series to choose from yet but the ones that made the list are THE BEST because they were the chosen ones, deserving all my money.

Top Ten Hidden Gems of 2016

Making lists of underrated books is always kind of hard because you gotta look outside your social bubble and consider if they really are as under-hyped as they seem (because spoiler: they often aren’t. The times I’ve seen Chaos Walking called under-hyped… LMAO).
