I'm Amanda.  I've been blogging since 2015.

I like coffee, good stories, and pondering things entirely too much.

I started ORIONMISSING in November 2020 to create a space to post beyond just reviewing & recommending media. If you're coming here from my old site, nerdificationreviews, thanks for sticking with me!

On Stories...

Love of Fiction -


I look for strong characters in slice of life fiction.  


Satirical social commentary.


An appreciation for the natural world, or a strong sense of place.  


And tales about feeling alienated from society, while participating in it.


I hope you'll find some new favorites here!


Love of Nonfiction -


Fact is often stranger than fiction. There's so much to learn.
