Bookfessional: Dragon Con 2017

Bookfessional: Dragon Con 2017

Bookfessional: Dragon Con, it’s a’ comin’. TWO WEEKS. Two weeks from today marks the beginning of my favorite time of year: Dragon Con. I’m particularly excited b/c I didn’t get to attend last year (b/c sister got married and all the hullabaloo that involved), so I didn’t get my annual fix. You: What kind of […]

Bookfessional: Book BFFs

Bookfessional: Book BFFs

Bookfessional: Book BFFs We talk about book boyfriends all the time (Clayton Danvers is mine, and I’ll cut anyone who tries to claim him for their own), but what about book best friends? The characters we read and share an instant connection with, the ones who are kindred spirits that we know we’d be friends […]

Bookfessional: Recent Binges

Bookfessional: Bingeing, I Love it I don’t know about you guys, but Netflix has spoiled me—excepting GoT, I can’t think of a single show that I have the patience to watch on a week-to-week basis. When I watch something, I watch all of it, up to being current and/or finishing it. #cantstopwontstop These are my […]

Review: Locke & Key, Vol. 1 by Joe Hill

Review: Locke & Key, Vol. 1 by Joe Hill

LOCKE & KEY is super popular as far as graphic novels go—it’s near the top of every Goodreads best-graphic-novels-in-the-history-of-ever list—so I snagged it despite my usual avoidance of all things horror . . . I really shouldn’t have. Not b/c horror, although it was pretty horrific at times, but b/c it was pure chaos. The […]

Bookfessional: When They Get the Mythology Wrong

Bookfessional: When They Get the Mythology Wrong

Bookfessional: When They Get it Wrong My love of folklore and mythology began almost as soon as I learned to read, and as reading has been my numero uno hobby since around that same time, I’ve had decades to become something of a smarty pants on my favorites. Even if you don’t seek out the […]

Review: The Dream Keeper’s Daughter by Emily Colin

Review: The Dream Keeper’s Daughter by Emily Colin

The books I have the hardest times reviewing are the MEH books, and THE DREAM KEEPER’S DAUGHTER is one such book. In the struggle to find something to say beyond, “MEH,” I can hyperfocus on the things that annoyed me, the end result being that the book comes across as far worse than it actually […]

Bookfessional: Mid-Year Roundup

Bookfessional: Mid-Year Roundup

Bookfessional: Mid-Year Roundup We’re more than halfway through 2017, and once again I’m stuck scratching my head, wondering how in the world that happened . . . I mean, really? Where does the time go? I have no idea. BUT. This is what my year-in-books looks like so far. ~ Best Reads ~ Given my […]

Review: Monstress, Vol 2 by Marjorie Liu

Review: Monstress, Vol 2 by Marjorie Liu

The second collection of MONSTRESS is centered around Maika Halfwolf retracing her mother’s steps in an attempt to discover how to rid herself of the monster that lives inside of her. Like that’s going to be possible. *rolls eyes* The journey is interesting despite its pointlessness. We learn much about Maika’s family and meet her […]

Review: Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman

Review: Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman

There are a handful of authors that I feel like I should’ve checked out by now, and every new release that I don’t read makes me feel like more and more of failure. I’m a book review blogger. A speculative fiction book review blogger. How can I not have read Alice Hoffman? *rings bell-of-shame* BUT. […]
