For the longest time you could only have Pride and Prejudice OR zombies, but the release of the trailer for the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies reminded me that now I can have both! The problem is that most combos are great because of the shared responsibility towards the success. Take a […]Read more "Movie Prep: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies"
Moving straight from The Fall to The Night Eternal in my one-woman book club, I didn’t have to wait long to get an ending to Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain trilogy. Thoughts? It may not be Salem’s Lot, but it’s good enough. “Good enough.”Read more "Off The Shelf: Review of The Night Eternal (The Strain Book 3)"
In a previous post I may have mentioned being pretty excited for the adaptation of The Strain from book to TV. Did I watch it? No… But I did read the sequel! That’s gotta count for something…Read more "Off the Shelf: Review of The Fall (The Strain Book 2)"
If you liked the first book in the Cafferty and Quinn series then you will be satisfied with Waking the Dead, the first sequel. But I’ve said it before and I will say it again, this series is still not the perfect blend of Angel and Castle that I hoped this paranormal crime fighter would […]Read more "Book Review: Waking the Dead (Cafferty & Quinn Book 2) by Heather Graham"
Let the Dead Sleep has the potential to be the first in a new series on my to read list, but it still has a lot of work ahead of it to become the perfect blend of Angel (before they screwed it up) and Castle I was hoping for.Read more "Book Review: Let the Dead Sleep by Heather Graham"
Let’s face it: The Fog and The Mist weren’t the best movies (I still need to read Stephen King’s original novel of the latter before writing it off completely), but that’s not to say the premises didn’t have potential. Go play Alan Wake and you’ll understand. I was hoping Snowblind would create an experience more […]Read more "Book Review: Snowblind by Christopher Golden"
Lauren: If you’ve been keeping track of my reading habits (excluding comics), then you’ll be well aware that I have been going through a bit of a rough patch when it comes to enjoying my reading choices. With that in mind, I decided to go back to the last book I enjoyed, Stephen King’s Doctor […]Read more "Book Club in Session: NOS4A2 by Joe Hill"
Lauren: Between the genres of comic books and novels I’m most drawn to reading, it’s sometimes shocking to remember that not all books are a part of a series with hundreds and hundreds of pages building on the work that came before. It can become overwhelming, which is when it becomes pertinent to my psyche […]Read more "Book Club in Session: The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman"
I thought I’d heard of everything when it came to nonhuman significant others. There are inflatable sex dolls, and one step up, Lars’ life-sized anatomically correct doll-turned-girlfriend in Lars and the Real Girl. And if you can’t buy a girlfriend, you can make one from scratch, much like the robo-wife in Robopocolypse. Yet, a girlfriend […]Read more "Book Club in Session: The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker"
I can’t say that I quite understood the world of The Bone Season to an extent that would have made me proud of my brain’s ability to process and retain information, but at least my confusion was not detrimental enough to keep me from enjoying the world of this book on the whole.Read more "Book Review: The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon"
