Bookfessional: Authors as People as Authors

Bookfessional: Authors as People as Authors

Ninety-nine times out of a hundred, I read the books I read because: hype / cover whore / highly recommended by someone trustworthy / auto-buy author, etc. BUT. On rare occasions, an author comes to my attention, not b/c of their work, but b/c of themselves as humans. They did or said some very cool […]

Bookfessional: RANDOMNESS no. 1 (@jessicadhaluska, @FairyLoot)

Bookfessional: Randomness Sometimes I run across interesting bookish (or nerd life) things that don’t rate a full post, but it makes me sad not to share their awesomeness at all, SO this is my first Bookfessional, randomness edition. 1. American Gods. The first episode of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods airs on Sunday night. Did I […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
