Sneak Peek Parasitic worms burrowing into eye sockets, oceans filled with man-eating, snake-like monsters, and fields of eyes are just small proof that Mother Nature is pretty pissed off at mankind.

In William Aicher’s latest philosophical science fiction thriller, The Unfortunate Expiration of Mr. David S. Sparks, David attempts to recollect and piece together snippets of his memory from a seemingly normal past.  At the same time, he must fight a system overload and shutdown of his present situation. David is the most important man in the world, after all. David can barely pledge allegiance to one side. The Progressives, drone-like businessmen, kill others for their own selfish gain but promise to restore his…

Uncorking Bookish Secrets: The Entertainer Book Tag

What Is The Entertainer Book Tag? Book bloggers love sharing their favorite reads as well as weirdo titles in fun and unique ways.  The Entertainer Book Tag is an online blog book tag from bloggers passed on to other bloggers.  Questions are asked and answered, and then we spread the love with even more impossible to answer book dragon questions.  No, the tag is not quite like those annoying chain letters where half of your family will get eaten by a pack of raging unicorns if you fail to respond, but just in case, I had to share my book choices. Meet Fiction No Chaser Thank you to Jess and Teagan of Fiction No Chaser for tagging TUL in this book tag post. Their book blog perfectly aligns with The Uncorked Librarian as they match book reviews with a boozy chaser. Expect sugar, spice, and everything extra nice in their…

Top Beach Reads: Chill Out With A Good Book This Summer

Most days living in Florida I feel like I am melting.  The windows steam up each morning and the parched lizards start moving slower.  The scorching heat makes beach visits daunting, and even sitting by the pool is a challenge.  This frying an egg–aka me–on the pavement scenario is problematic.  My favorite past time involves a book, cool drink, and The Uncorked Librarian in a lounge chair. How do you make these hot days bearable?  Book to beach is like wine to Christine.  There is, of course, only one solution: more alcohol!  Well, frothier drinks at least and maybe more engaging books.  In fact, what if the book gave you the chills?  I’m talking shivers like when you watch Riverdale (Season 2) before bed.  Or even better, what if you read about ice skating and the winter while roasting outside?  Or how about getting your head sawed off and cryogenically frozen? …
