About Me

Welcome to the blog!

My name is Chaz, and I write boring blog posts. Most of my posts are my random thoughts about the books I read, and I call them reviews. (Or shitty blog posts) I created this blog to force myself to get writing practice, and hopefully meet some cool people on the way.

I post on occasion (I read too slow to post that often), but lately I’ve enjoyed connecting with other bloggers who share similar interests much more than posting on my own site.


 I will rate most of the books I read pretty high because I shop around to find what I know I will like before I pick it up. Sometimes I get carried away and become an instant fan-boy of a book I just read. (Or honestly anything by Brandon Sanderson at this point) You can’t stop THE HYPE TRAIN BABY! Hopefully my genuineness and enthusiasm will show through my poor writing skills. 😀

If I don’t like something and it’s too long to finish, I will drop it immediately and won’t say anything about it. We all do not have the time left in our lives to finish our “To Read” pile.

I try to be too funny all of the time, and I really can’t help it. My greatest joy is making people laugh. I will keep going and going if people are laughing. (Or if it’s just me laughing at my own jokes. Which is all the time…) My greatest passion are stories. I love experiencing a good emotional impact from stories through any medium.

Other than that: I have a boring/high stress senior management job, live in the great state of MO, I try to go to the gym as much as possible, I play video games, I obviously try to read as much as I can, and I eat way too much pizza. I’ve turned into quite the craft beer snob as well. Being in the New England area I grew to love some of the best breweries in the world. (What a hipster)


You can find out a bit more about me by reading answers to 200 or so questions here, here, and here.

 Please feel free to shoot me an email/message anytime! I love being able to connect with people who share the same interests as myself! Add me on social media/IG/come to my mom’s house for dinner.


Feel free to buy me some liquid crack. Here



Thanks for stopping by,

  1. Haha! You literally sound like my best friend!

    As a fellow New Englander, and partner owns a brewing company, I am high fiving you on the beer snob shenanigans.

  2. I saw you mentioned Brandon Sanderson. I’m currently halfway through the Wheel of Time series, which was a Robert Jordan series that Sanderson completed when Jordan passed away. I was just curious is you have read WOT?

  3. Hi Chaz! You’re funny! Seriously 🙂
    I lived in the Boston/Lexington area for 2 years and loved it. You are definitely right about the great breweries there!
    Thanks for liking my review post for Dead Sea Rising by Jerry B. Jenkins.

  4. You said you never post/comment on the books you never finish? How come out of interest? Always good to take the negative aspects of a book with the good ones. But really like your about me section. A real insight to your writing and who you are. Looking forward to reading more of your blog!

  5. Hi Chaz, many thanks for liking my post about my new short story collection ‘Minding Mama & Other Short Stories’ – much appreciated! I love your enthusiasm, and completely get why you sometimes stop reading books (dare I hope that you might read mine all the way through?!? 🙂 . As a fellow ‘book junkie’ I tend not to review books I don’t finish, or don’t enjoy – although I sometimes think a review saying why I didn’t enjoy/finish it might be helpful to other readers, and perhaps the author… But having said that, I don’t always leave reviews for books I DO enjoy, either, and always feel bad about not doing so… usually it’s just the time factor (as in lack of). But I should probably make time to leave a review instead of diving into the next book or going off to drive a few more miles on ETS2/ATS. My bad!

  6. Hey! Thanks for visiting the Jenn Stories. I’d be honored if you were to buy and read my book that’s already out, and even more if after that, you bought and read the next one! Although…they’re a little different from each other. I can guarantee you’ll get through the first one in no time. It’s a quick, one-sitting kind of read.

  7. Thanks for checking out my blog! Definitely going to check out the books you’ve talked about! I’ll be updating every day, hopefully, so follow me for good books to read! I’m looking for cool people to engage with on the books I’ve read. Criticism or whatever, I’m here for it!

    1. Hi Zandra, Sorry I have not replied earlier but I have only just discovered this section of WordPress. Shows how techy I am! In reply to your question, my daughter arranges my website, when she has time, so I’m afraid I can’t help you. Thanks anyway for visiting my site.
