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 […]

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Review: Caraval by Stephanie Garber

Anytime a book is surrounded in as much hype as CARAVAL, I try to go into reading it with lowered expectations. BUT. Said hype seldom stops me from actually reading it. Not b/c I’m a lemming, but b/c curiosity. *shakes fist at curiosity gods* That being said, beyond the pretty, pretty cover and the quote, […]

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 […]

Review: Pretty Deadly Vol. 1 by Kelly Sue DeConnick

Review: Pretty Deadly Vol. 1 by Kelly Sue DeConnick

The installments begin from the POV of a bunny and a butterfly, told fable-style, but as the main characters are human, there’s a significance to our animal narrators that isn’t immediately understood. I say “understood” b/c there’s a lot that is […]

Review: The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden (@jessicadhaluska, @arden_katherine, @DelReyBooks)

I added another new bookshelf to Goodreads: religious nutters I preface my review with that statement, b/c it’s important that you know exactly how off-putting I find anyone who uses religion as a crutch to excuse their abominable behavior. Agamemnon sacrificing his daughter to ensure favorable winds as he sails to Troy? Kill him on […]

The Wicked + The Divine by Kieron Gillen

The Wicked + The Divine by Kieron Gillen

SO. Every ninety years a bunch of gods take over the bodies of a bunch of teenagers to live as pop stars for two years before they die. Riiiiight. B/c gods have nothing better to do than become Taylor Swift. Fame is everything. Worship. Adulation. Whatever, I’m bored. Know what else is boring? They don’t […]
