Review: Lazarus, Vol. 1 by Greg Rucka

Review: Lazarus, Vol. 1 by Greg Rucka

With a title like LAZARUS, it should be obvious that this graphic novel has something to do with someone coming back from the dead . . . But I didn’t really think about that (tangentially related to my reluctance to read blurbs, I think), or the implications, and I had a momentary panic attack during […]

Netflix Review: Iron Fist

Netflix Review: Iron Fist

I think I’ve been fairly upfront about my love of Marvel on Netflix. I’m a big fan of DC too . . . Hell, I just love superheroes. BUT. I have to admit, when I was settling in for my IRON FIST binge, I asked myself, “How many rich boys can go missing/presumed dead, only […]

Review: Pocket Apocalypse by Seanan McGuire (@jessicadhaluska, @seananmcguire, @dawbooks)

Review: Pocket Apocalypse by Seanan McGuire (@jessicadhaluska, @seananmcguire, @dawbooks)

Four books in and I’m still loving McGuire’s InCryptid series, though it must be said that I’m not going to terribly miss Alex’s POV.

In most circumstances I’d rejoice at this development, but not […]

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 […]
