CJ’s Bookshelf: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

I usually don't like writing reviews of consecutive books in a series, because I feel like I just end up saying the same thing over and over in each review (especially if I like the books) but I'm going to try for the Throne of Glass books, because I really like this series so far -… Continue reading CJ’s Bookshelf: Crown of Midnight by Sarah J. Maas

CJ’s Bookshelf: The Martian by Andy Weir

"If a hiker gets lost in the mountains, people will coordinate a search. If a train crashes, people will line up to give blood. If an earthquake levels a city, people all over the world will send emergency supplies. This is so fundamentally human that its found in every culture without exception." - The Martian… Continue reading CJ’s Bookshelf: The Martian by Andy Weir

CJ’s Bookshelf: Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

I'm not going to lie, I was hesitant to give this book a chance because the last book I read because it was hailed as the "next Gone Girl" I didn't like at all. Just like The Girl on the Train was way over-hyped, I had a feeling this book would be too. Let's face… Continue reading CJ’s Bookshelf: Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll

CJ’s Bookshelf: I Regret Nothing by Jen Lancaster

I have never been a big fan of the "chick lit" genre. Shopaholics, Plum puns, and what have you - they've never really interested me. When I want what I consider a "mind candy" read, I tend to go for something in the YA fantasy/scifi genre over anything that would be considered "chick lit." Which… Continue reading CJ’s Bookshelf: I Regret Nothing by Jen Lancaster

CJ’s Bookshelf: April Reads

My bookshelf is actually light on books this month - not that I haven't been doing quite a bit a reading. I only finished one actual novel (even though I have about three others started) and a book of poetry. The majority of my reading this month was actually devoted to reading comic books. Equal Rites… Continue reading CJ’s Bookshelf: April Reads

Throwback Thursday: New York Comic Con 2014

In October 2014 I had the extreme pleasure of attending New York Comic Con as a member of the press. It was one of the greatest experiences I've had; I loved every minute of it. It's hard to believe it's already been 6 months! Hopefully 6 months from now I'll be returning a second round… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: New York Comic Con 2014
