Book Review: A Game of Thrones

So, uh, yeah... I've kinda been promising a certain book review for literally almost a year, haven't I?

Hopefully the music will last you until the end of this review.

(WARNING: Minor spoilers ahead for both the book and the first season of the show, although I'll try to keep it as spoiler-free as possible. Also, the usual ranting and occasional foul language, obvs.)

So I Went to See Fifty Shades Darker...


Man, it feels good to be back. And believe me, there was a time when I myself did think that this blog was dead. One of these days I'll probably write a very candid and emotionally-charged post about everything that's been going on with me for the past half year or so. But right now, I've got a shitty movie to rant about. Because you know that if there was one thing that could bring me out of retirement, it would be Fifty Shades of Garbage.

Here We Go Again... My Fifty Shades Darker Trailer Reaction (plus other news)

Hello once again, fellow nerds! As you can probably tell, work and grad school have been kicking my sorry ass, and I'm still trying to get the hang of managing my minuscule free time properly. Sadly, I did not make nearly as much progress as I had wanted to on that super sexy erotic romance novel I'm writing, and it's been way too long since I've devoted much time to this blog, or even since I tweeted anything. I was getting ready to finally post my long-overdue review of Star Trek Beyond this week, though, and was totally going to (honestly! I swear!) follow that up with my book reviews of A Game of Thrones and A Clash of Kings. But alas, it was not yet to be, for I have recieved two pieces of terrible news today that have forced me to completely change my plans.

Book Review: In Flight, by R.K. Lilley

Yes, I know, I promised you A Game of Thrones. That review will be ready soon...ish. I hope. But right now I just have all these thoughts about all these erotic romance books I've been reading stuck in my head and I just need to get them out. Enjoy!

In Flight (Up in the Air #1)- R.K. Lilley

(WARNING: All the usual stuff about snark, possibly NSFW material, and some possible mild spoilers, although probably not too many. Also, I could honestly not care less if I did spoil this book. I think you'll understand why soon enough.)

Book Review (and some other news): Bared to You by Sylvia Day

Hello, book buddies! Guess who's back after yet another months-long unscheduled hiatus? Man, I really need to stop making a habit of those...

So, I guess I have a bit of explaining to do, particularly since 1) my last two reviews were for erotica; 2) this book wasn't even on my reading list; and 3) I'd kinda been talking and talking about how excited I was to have finally finished A Game of Thrones and was all pumped up to get my review of it out and then finally start my City of Bones sporking I've been talking about for what seems like decades. And well, I actually DID write most of my GOT review; it was detailed and thorough and awesome and so close to done... and then I lost it all.

Mini-Reviews: Club Shadowlands and The Boss

Happy almost spring, everyone! I tried for much longer than what's reasonable to turn this into a "winter is coming/winter's almost over" joke to celebrate the fact that I'm almost done with A Game of Thrones and should have a review of it out soon, but sadly I failed.

Anyway... my blog may have been all but dead between August and January, but that doesn't mean I wasn't doing any reading. I joked a long time ago on my review of The Last Swordmage that it was pretty strange that despite the fact that I feel way more at home with genres like fantasy, don't usually care for straight-up erotica/romance as a genre, and always intended for this blog to host an eclectic mix of fiction, my early reviews almost solely focused on (mostly terrible) kinky erotic romance. And now it's been what, about a year since I last reviewed anything "erotic"? Oh, how things have changed (or not) since those early days. So after taking a much-needed breather, I decided months back to cautiously dip my toe back into the hot, steamy, sweaty Jacuzzi of erotic fiction. You're welcome, my friends, you're welcome.

Book Review: Aftermath

After nearly two months (!) of sporadic reading, I have finally done it. I've finished Aftermath.

Sorry, Chuck Wendig, I really didn't like your book.
