The Greatest Adventure…..

The Greatest Adventure….A TBF Journey

As ever, Laura and I made the trip to Rochester NY for TBF. The 2018 event promised to be amazing as there were several authors we were excited to see. Many of these authors of these authors were ones that we grew up with as children including Margret Peterson Haddix, Bruce Coville, and Tamora Pierce. […]

Laura’s Summer TBR

I know that right now the world is muddy and gross and it is always either too hot or too cold for comfort. Everyone’s allergies are acting up and all I want to do is curl up with a book and read. Ah, spring. Soon, though, it will warm up. The sun will come out […]

Review: The Truth is a Cave ..

Review: The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains by Neil Gaiman

I like to break up my reading list with a graphic novel here and there. I love looking at the art while I read, and I feel that it is an underappreciated category of books. This one was amazing. I love Neil Gaiman’s work, so I knew that I would probably enjoy it, but I […]

SO. We’ve all been eagerly awaiting almost ANYTHING from the world of Prythian (and, let’s face it, WE WANT MORE RHYSAND!). So when A COURT OF FROST AND STARLIGHT was announced, all of us ACOTAR fans collectively squealed! But the question is : WAS IT WORTH THE WAIT? First off, there’s the page count. While […]

Choosing Excellence Over Laz..

Choosing Excellence Over Laziness, a GUEST POST by Chelsea Bobulski- OAAA 2018

  I am operating from deep within the Revision Cave, with four deadlines fast approaching for four different projects, and so I thought this would be the perfect time to talk about a problem I often encounter within myself when Revision Time rolls around, and that is my precondition toward laziness. It’s actually really fascinating […]

The Book Loft- A Side Trip Adventure

No book festival trip is complete without a side trip to a bookstore. Luckily Columbus is home to one of the most unique bookstores we’ve visited so far. I have already been to The Book Loft before but for Laura this was a new experience. Same for my sister and her little nugget (my nephew). […]

Adult Male Fiction and Dan B..

Adult Male Fiction and Dan Brown: Some Thoughts

These days the ever popular victim of the female disgust in literature is the adult male description of female characters. These posts turn into memes and we all get a hearty laugh out of it. Haha men can’t write women because of “insert reason here”. I admittedly laugh and share. But I don’t read a […]
