Bookfessional: Mt. TBR

Bookfessional: Mt. TBR

Bookfessional: To be read . . . It’s so common a concept amongst avid readers that breaking down the acronym was probably unnecessary. BUT. There are as many ways of categorizing and organizing a TBR list/pile/MOUNTAIN/etc. as there are individuals who keep one. I’m pretty sure I fall on the ridiculous end of the size […]

Bookfessional: Battlestar Galactica, I love it. #sosayweall

Bookfessional: Battlestar Galactica, I love it. #sosayweall

(Minor) SPOILERS for the first two seasons are in this post. The further down you get, the bigger the potential spoiler. FYI. I unapologetically love most sci-fi TV series. Star Trek in most of its incarnations, Stargate SG-1, Stargate: Atlantis, Farscape, V, The Event, Firefly, The 100, and most recently The Expanse, but out of […]

Bookfessional: The Rules

Bookfessional: The Rules

Bookfessional: The Rules Before I started reviewing at Rabid Reads, I either liked a book or I didn’t. I didn’t analyze the whys or think critically about what specifically kept me turning the pages of one story and throwing my hands up in disgust with another. BUT. Such a laissez-faire attitude does not make for […]

Bookfessional: Magical Book Item Wishlist

Bookfessional: Magical Book Item Wishlist

Last week’s literary signpost bookfessional reminded me of my favorite question on the template questionnaire from the “welcome” thread in my buddy reading group on Goodreads: magical items found in books that I WANT. You: What are you on about? Me: You know, the group I co-moderate on Goodreads that facilitates reading books with online […]

Bookfessional: My Literary Signpost

Bookfessional: My Literary Signpost

Literary Signposts, we’ve all seen them, right? I don’t know about you guys, but I love them. They’re so whimsical and bookishly indulgent . . . *sighs happily* I’d never given them much thought though—they’re all variations of: Hogwarts, Neverland, Narnia, the Shire, etc. And I was fine with that. B/c it was the idea […]

Bookfessional: Cloudy Days and Comfort Reads

Bookfessional: Cloudy Days and Comfort Reads

Bookfessional: Cloudy Days and Comfort Reads We’re not getting bombarded with snow down here in Tennessee like those of you further north, but the last several days have been pretty grim, and the nasty overcast skies have made me want to curl up with a bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich and […]

Bookfessional: Pre-Order Swag

Bookfessional: Pre-Order Swag

Bookfessional: Pre-Order S W A G Show me an avid reader that doesn’t love book swag, and I’ll call you a liar. Or just no fun. Your pick. Even better than book swag, is FREE book swag, am I right? A couple years ago (ish), I started seeing pre-order promotions for high profile books popping […]

Bookfessional: Book Boyfriend Archetypes – Batman vs. Superman

Bookfessional: Book Boyfriend Archetypes – Batman vs. Superman

I just finished an epic Hulu binge of Smallville, and rather than trying to review TEN seasons of (mediocre #sorrynotsorry) TV, I’ve decided to attack the massive time-suck-that-was by addressing a revelation I had about halfway through it: Smallville is Dullsville. In hindsight it seems obvious, but ever since some nameless, faceless sociology professor gave […]

Netflix Review: Sense8

Netflix Review: Sense8

Somehow—I have no idea how, b/c Netflix always sends me alerts when they add a new SFF series (b/c Netflix is the god of gluttony and lives inside my head and knows my weaknesses)—but somehow SENSE8 completely escaped my notice when it joined the cast of Netflix original series last May. So when the trailer […]
