Review: Storm Born by Richelle Mead (@jessicadhaluska)

Richelle Mead is one of those authors who’s grown on me, slowly but steadily, since I first discovered her ten(ish) years ago. At this point, I’ve pretty much read everything she’s written (BLOODLINES being the one exception), but for whatever reason, she’s never one of my obvious choices whenever someone asks me who my favorite […]

Bookfessional: Weird Stuff Our Friends Talk Us Into Reading

Bookfessional: Weird Stuff Our Friends Talk Us Into Reading I’m not a judgmental person, especially when it comes to reading preferences . . . Unless someone makes a point of reading nothing but classics and/or literary fiction with the intent of looking down their long noses at the rest of us, in which case I […]

Review: Demon Song by Cat Adams

So here’s the thing about DEMON SONG . . . Before this rerereread, it was my favorite book in the BLOOD SINGER series (thus far). It was actually one of my favorite installments of an urban fantasy series ever. BUT. This time around . . . not so much. Before I get into the specifics, […]

Bookfessional: Book Funks, Ughhhh. (@jessicadhaluska)

Bookfessional: Book Funks . . . Ughhhh. They’re the bane of every readers existence. Sometimes they’re the result of binge reading a greatly anticipated new release from start to finish in a single sitting. You become so enmeshed in the world and the characters that when it’s over, you can’t let go. You continue to […]

Bookfessional: Those Crazy Winchester Boys

Bookfessional: Supernatural It’s been years since I was last current with that beloved TV series, Supernatural, but Sam and Dean are Sam and Dean, and during my last episode of the Book Funk, I decided to get caught up . . . So I binge watched all E L E V E N seasons. B/c […]

Bookfessional: Conventions and Other Author Events

Bookfessional: Conventions and Other Author Events Before I joined Rabid Reads, I’d never been to a convention. That’s not to say that you have to be a blogger or somehow connected to the industry to attend a convention, I just didn’t know anything about them, so I never went. I’d never been to a book […]

Review: Siren Song by Cat Adams

Review: Siren Song by Cat Adams

It’s rare to get a really good first installment in an urban fantasy series—too much stuff has to happen. You’ve got world-building, laying the foundation for the series arc while telling an individual story that’s compelling by itself, character development, etc. All preferably in 40k words or less. On occasion, it does happen, but most […]
