‘Big Fat Manifesto:’ The book that changed my life.

Generally, I’m a fairly private person. Not private in the sense that I don’t share anything with anyone, but private in the sense that my major life issues are just that. Mine. But recently, after some eye-opening events, I decided that one of the more personal struggles during my life might benefit someone, someday. And also how I dealt (and continue to deal) with it. For anyone who knows me in my personal life, there […]

Book vs. Movie: ‘The S..

Book vs. Movie: ‘The Shining’ belongs to 1977, not 1980.

Welcome to the very first Book vs. Movie Monday! I wanted to bring something different to the site beyond book reviews every week, and this is one of the post themes I thought would be fun to try. I’d love to hear your reactions to either the book, the movie, my comments, or all three! The Shining, the notably-out-there Stanley Kubrick 1980 journey into the realm of horror, has captivated and thrilled audiences for over […]

Book Review: ‘Ink Mage’ by Victor Gischler

I am at war with Victor Gischler’s Ink Mage. And when I say at war, I mean full-on, in your face, spitting mad, throw-the-book-at-the-wall-if-it-weren’t-on-my-Kindle war. There are so many reasons why I want to tell you that this was a good book. Why I think everyone should buy it and read it and love it forever. But I can’t. Because often times, we find that as much as we want a book to be wonderful, […]

Book Review: ‘Scowler’ by Daniel Kraus

“The demon offspring of Stephen King’s The Shining and Hitchcock’s Psycho.” That’s what Michael Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Gone and BRZK, is quoted as saying on the back of Scowler, the newest brainchild of the world of the weird author Daniel Kraus. I knew I should have geared up for disappointment right there. I fell in love with Kraus and his writing style when I picked up a copy of his 2011 […]

Book Review: ‘City of Heavenly Fire’ by Cassandra Clare

There’s always something about wrapping up a series that’s bittersweet. You’ve come to love for the characters and care for them as if they were your friends, family, or maybe even a first love. And Cassandra Clare’s City of Heavenly Fire sure has its fill of moments that make a fan of The Mortal Instruments series truly sad to see the adventures of Clary and co. come to an end. Do I think it lived […]

Book Review: ‘Fire & Flood’ by Victoria Scott

Dystopia is the new thing among the Young Adult genre of literature, and with hugely successful hits like The Hunger Games and Divergent series cashing in big, authors are more than willing to jump on the bandwagon. The problem lies in the fact that it takes an awful lot of skill to get a dystopian thriller right, something most authors lack. For Victoria Scott, and her newest novel Fire & Flood, this isn’t an issue. She instead […]
