Husband devours your favorite snack b/c it’s there? Put it on a different shelf (b/c if it’s not where it’s “supposed” to be, it doesn’t […]

Review: New Spring by Robert Jordan

Review: New Spring by Robert Jordan

This book gave me FEELINGS . . . . . . few of them good. For the first time in a WoT reread, I found myself absolutely hating the content. HATING. The only reason NEW SPRING didn’t get one-starred is b/c there are more than a few poignant Lan moments. But without those . . […]

Bookfessional: Goodreads Choice Awards 2016 Yesterday began the first round of this year’s voting for our favorite books in various genres on Goodreads! *throws confetti in the air* Personally, I love this time of year. I love checking out the different categories and dithering over whether Saga, Volume 6 or Monstress should get my vote […]

Review: Crossroads of Twilight by Robert Jordan

Review: Crossroads of Twilight by Robert Jordan

CROSSROADS OF TWILIGHT is notoriously many WoT fans’ least favorite book in series. It’s been years since I last read it, so I let all the negative hype get to me, and I started dreading my revisit, but it wasn’t half as bad as people made it out to be. I think the main problem […]

Review: Winter’s Heart by Robert Jordan

Review: Winter’s Heart by Robert Jordan

There will be SPOILERS. I figure at this point in the series, the only people intelligently reading my reviews are fellow WoT veterans, so I’m not going to sweat the small stuff. I’ll still spoiler tag any Game Changers, so if you are a first timer, fear not. BUT. If you prefer to be blind […]

Review: Storm Born by Richelle Mead (@jessicadhaluska)

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

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 […]
