Hi everyone, after much deliberation, I’ve decided to move my book reviewing entirely to Goodreads, at least for a while. That’s where most of it’s happening right now anyway, with some on Instagram. So, I’m not really calling this a hiatus, because I hope to see you all there! Social media links are all in…… Continue reading Moving to Goodreads
Hell hath no fury . . . Damian, Earl of Windermere, rues the day he drunkenly gambled away his family’s estate and was forced into marriage to reclaim it. Now, after hiding out from his new bride for a year, Damian is finally called home, only to discover that his modest bride has become an…… Continue reading Feminist Friday Review: Lady Windermere’s Lover by Miranda Neville
The days are getting shorter in Georgia, and although it’s still hot during the day, my drives home are dark and foggy. Last October, I was listening to The Halloween Tree by Ray Bradbury, narrated by Bronson Pinchot. The story was just okay, but Pinchot’s voice for Moundshroud was incredible, and after a year of not having…… Continue reading October Audiobook Picks
Phew. Unannounced month-long hiatus there. I realized — after making last month’s update post about being proud of the few but detailed posts I’d put up recently, which I still stand by — that I really needed a brain break. I went into my Goodreads today to log a book, and realized I hadn’t read…… Continue reading Update: October Halloween Theme!
Hiya folks! Not a lot of things to update on this month… I’ve been reading again, working up to more substantial novels after the comics and light nonfiction I’ve been reading most of the year. It turns out there’s another mental step between being able to read more and getting back to writing a lot,…… Continue reading Update: September!
It’s my birthday! I’m 27 today. I’m going to see The Happytime Murders and get some food and have a great time today. And I saved a birthday-themed book tag for like 11 months, so here it is. Count your birth day along your bookshelf and then subtract your birth month. What book does your finger land…… Continue reading Birthday Book Tag!
The Classic: Emma by Jane Austen (1815) “Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich, with a comfortable home and happy disposition seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence; and had lived nearly twenty-one years in the world with very little to distress or vex her.” So begins Jane Austen’s comic masterpiece Emma. In Emma, Austen’s prose brilliantly elevates,…… Continue reading Classics Club Review: Emma by Jane Austen
Resident Alien is a space opera/mystery graphic novel series by Peter Hogan, and I love it. There are four volumes so far, with a fifth coming out in November, all from Dark Horse. Each is published as a miniseries and then a trade paperback, so it’s easy to follow what to read next. Each volume has a…… Continue reading Review: Resident Alien series by Peter Hogan
Hi everybody, how’s it going? I had a pretty good July, looking forward to a good August too. I’ve been reading actual novels again, slowly. I seem to have raised my standards in the months I’ve only been reading comics, so I’ve started and abandoned several books. Most notably, I tried to read Pirate’s Alley by Suzanne…… Continue reading Update: August! Urban fantasy, Ant-Man, book hoard update.
Do you wanna hear about my favorite book on writing? Yay! If you’ve been around the blog a while, you know I’m an aspiring author. Always have been, due to my obsession with books. (I think readers can’t help but contemplate what they’d write themselves, and most of us give it a try.) Fiction writing…… Continue reading Review: Writing and Selling Your Novel by Jack M. Bickham
