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

CJ’s Bookshelf: The Returned by Seth Patrick

Before I get into reviewing this book, I feel like I need to give a brief clarification. This book is a novelization of the French TV series Les Revenants or The Returned, which aired on the Sundance channel several months ago (and which can be seen on Netflix now). A&E is currently airing an American adaptation… Continue reading CJ’s Bookshelf: The Returned by Seth Patrick

Talking The Mortal Instruments and Shadowhunters Dream Casting

Earlier this week ABC Family announced they were moving forward with a drama series based on Cassandra Clare's The Mortal Instruments series. This possibility had been rumored for quite some time, and given the popularity of the books, but lackluster showing the feature film made at the box office, it's not a surprise the powers that… Continue reading Talking The Mortal Instruments and Shadowhunters Dream Casting

CJ’s Bookshelf: March Reads

March is "Folklore" month in my reading challenge, so you may notice a common theme amongst a few of my reading selections this month (and it may lean more toward "Faerie tale" then folktale). See if you can pick out which novels that applies to. I am also in the process of reading a book of reimagined… Continue reading CJ’s Bookshelf: March Reads
