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: 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bookfessional: Palette Cleansers

Bookfessional: Palette Cleansers

Bookfessional: Breaking the Funk If you couldn’t already tell based on my surplus of Bookfessionals over the last couple of weeks, I’m battling my annual mid-year(ish) book funk. Between my recent addiction to graphic novels, regular Netflixing, and the overwhelming ARC pile, recently, I’ve been uninterested in all things speculative fiction. On the bright side, […]

Bookfessional: My House is a Maze of Books

Bookfessional: My House is a Maze of Books

Bookfessional: No Such Thing as Too Many Books Earlier this week, one of my husband’s coworkers posted this picture on Facebook and asked me if DH (Dear Husband) needed a project . . . You: Why’d he do that? Me: B/c DH has been telling tales. *flares nostrils* You: o.O Me: And b/c he may […]

Bookfessional: Genres – Books vs. Screen

Bookfessional: Genres – Books vs. Screen

Bookfessional: I’ll Watch It, but I Won’t Read It Last week I stumbled across another Netflix original series: 3% That’s its title. 3%. I’m not quite finished, but before I started episode 1, I knew it was dystopian. And I watched it anyway. I mention this b/c I’d rather shave my head than read another […]

Bookfessional: Long-Running Series . . . When to Quit?

Bookfessional: Long-Running Series . . . When to Quit?

Bookfessional: When to Quit If you read speculative fiction, then you read at least one long-running series. You have too. It’s inevitable. In my case, lover of urban fantasy that I am, that’s primarily what I read. Most of my favorite series have (or are on their way to having) 10+ books, with various additional […]

Bookfessional: All the ARCs

Bookfessional: All the ARCs

Bookfessional: ARCs . . . You might call me one-click happy . . . I’ve done it again . . . I’ve been seduced by all the pretties and shinies that appear on NetGalley without ceasing. Now I’m staring at an overwhelming number of books to read in a limited period of time, some of […]
