Netflix Review: The Punisher

Netflix Review: The Punisher

Okay, for real . . . THE PUNISHER might be my favorite Netflix/Marvel series yet. You: Pfft. You love ALL the comic book things. Me: Not true. IRON FIST was lame, and I still haven’t even watched THE DEFENDERS (b/c IRON FIST is lame). I do love DAREDEVIL . . . LUKE CAGE was pretty […]

Review: Six-Gun Snow White by Catherynne M. Valente

When you’re a booklover, you read all kinds of books for all kinds of reasons. Sure, you have your favorite authors and series, but what about the lesser known quantities? Could be the hype, could be a recommendation, but whatever it is, you go into the reading of it with hope. Hope that it will […]

Review: Instructions by Neil Gaiman

Review: Instructions by Neil Gaiman

I have a confession to make . . . I don’t have much use for Neil Gaiman as far as full-length novels go. I KNOW. *dons sackcloth* *mortifies flesh* I gave him a more than fair shot, but Neverwhere and The Graveyard Book both bored me to tears, I didn’t make it more than a […]

Movie Review – Thor: Ragnarok

Movie Review – Thor: Ragnarok

THOR, y’all. For the handful of people who need a better reason than that to see THOR: RAGNAROK, under normal circumstances, I’d say something like, it’s the best Marvel movie in years. But Marvel movies have been exceptional of late, so I’ll just say the newest installment of the THOR franchise continues the trend. It. […]

Review: Midnight Labyrinth by Elizabeth Hunter (@jessicadhaluska, @EHunterWrites)

I love Elizabeth Hunter. She’s one of the only independent authors who consistently produces quality work. Hell, her stuff is better than a lot of the traditionally published urban fantasy these days. BUT. B/c I’m ridiculous, I dragged my heels about reading ELEMENTAL LEGACY, the second spin-off from her ELEMENTAL MYSTERIES series. *shrugs awkwardly* Tenzin […]

Netflix Review: Stranger Things

Netflix Review: Stranger Things

STRANGER THINGS might be the best show to ever come out of Netflix. Hopefully, you already agree with that statement, b/c if you don’t, b/c you have yet to watch it, this is not a spoiler-free post. I planned to review it last year, but everything I wrote was incoherent fangirling, and I inexplicably never […]

Review and Squawk: Mermaid by Jodi Picoult

Review and Squawk: Mermaid by Jodi Picoult

I’ve never read Picoult before THE MERMAID, and the only reason I did this time is b/c of my recent fascination with Kindle in Motion. No offense meant if you’re a Picoult fan, but I’m a very specific kind of escapist reader: the kind that ultimately wants to be happy. I don’t mind a reasonable […]
