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 […]

Netflix Review: Sense8

Netflix Review: Sense8

Somehow—I have no idea how, b/c Netflix always sends me alerts when they add a new SFF series (b/c Netflix is the god of gluttony and lives inside my head and knows my weaknesses)—but somehow SENSE8 completely escaped my notice when it joined the cast of Netflix original series last May. So when the trailer […]

Bookfessional: Reader Quirks (I has ’em).

Bookfessional: Reader Quirks Any time we do anything on a regular basis, we develop habits. Constantly misplace your keys? Put a key bowl on the bookshelf by the front door. Husband devours your favorite snack b/c it’s there? Put it on a different shelf (b/c if it’s not where it’s “supposed” to be, it doesn’t […]

Bookfessional: Weird Stuff Our Friends Talk Us Into Reading

Bookfessional: Weird Stuff Our Friends Talk Us Into Reading

Bookfessional: Weird Stuff Our Friends Talk Us Into Reading I’m not a judgmental person, especially when it comes to reading preferences . . . Unless someone makes a point of reading nothing but classics and/or literary fiction with the intent of looking down their long noses at the rest of us, in which case I […]

Bookfessional: Book Funks, Ughhhh. (@jessicadhaluska)

Bookfessional: Book Funks, Ughhhh. (@jessicadhaluska)

Bookfessional: Book Funks . . . Ughhhh. They’re the bane of every readers existence. Sometimes they’re the result of binge reading a greatly anticipated new release from start to finish in a single sitting. You become so enmeshed in the world and the characters that when it’s over, you can’t let go. You continue to […]

Bookfessional: Those Crazy Winchester Boys

Bookfessional: Supernatural It’s been years since I was last current with that beloved TV series, Supernatural, but Sam and Dean are Sam and Dean, and during my last episode of the Book Funk, I decided to get caught up . . . So I binge watched all E L E V E N seasons. B/c […]

Bookfessional: Conventions and Other Author Events

Bookfessional: Conventions and Other Author Events Before I joined Rabid Reads, I’d never been to a convention. That’s not to say that you have to be a blogger or somehow connected to the industry to attend a convention, I just didn’t know anything about them, so I never went. I’d never been to a book […]
