It’s a new year and time for a new Goodreads reading challenge goal. My goal last year was to read 70 books, and I read over 100. I would say about 90% of the books I thoroughly enjoyed. I can't tell you how shocked I was when I found out some people only enjoy 50% or even 30% of what they read every year.
I have over a thousand books on my to-be-read list, and I know lots of readers that have a whole lot more. Just last month, I removed over 400 books from my to-be-read list by applying my method. That's 400 books I don't have to buy or waste time reading because they just aren't my cup of tea.
I’m here to help you tackle the never ending to-be-read list, and focus on the books you are going to absolutely love.

As the story progressed, you learned that this was a female humanoid child who was supposed to be emotionless and the mothers were Grays.
Later I took this short story and began to develop it into the novelette it is now. I did research on the Grays and the most common characteristic. I wondered what would hypothetically cause an alien to evolve in this manner and how could it survive?Read more
