Keeping it Cheap at a Con… #BB101

Keeping it Cheap at a Con… #BB101

Saving Money Tips while attending a Reader’s Convention We all love going to cons, they are so much fun, we get a ton of books, get to meet our favorite authors. The problem – they are extremely expensive. If the con is out of town, the hotel and travel expenses can be anywhere from $500 to $1500 and then you have to pay for the con itself, $150 to $650 is the average. A lot of money. At least for me, I don’t have that kind of extra money just lying around and if I did, it woul […]

Things NOT to do in New Orleans – An #RT14 Dishing Junk Special

Things NOT to do in New Orleans – An #RT14 Dishing Junk Special

Today, in honor of the RT Convention, this edition of Dishing Junk will focus on dishing some junk about New Orleans. Things NOT to do in New Orleans   Do not FLASH anyone on Bourbon Street your boobs or ass. They only reward you with a bit of plastic beads that cost about .25¢ and will probably post your picture on the social networks or youtube. You should at least demand more money… Do not book a balcony room. The only time you want a balcony overlooking Bourbon Street for your hot […]

#Review of Avalon by Mindee Arnett

#Review of Avalon by Mindee Arnett

PJV Quickie: My first thoughts regarding AVALON by Mindee Arnett are that it is very reminiscent of FIREFLY, the Joss Whedon show that lasted 1 season, but amassed a cult following. Yet, while reminiscent, I would say it’s an enjoyable science fiction young adult novel, with “frontier and space opera” tropes, not a rip off of the television show, which has the same tropes. Arnett did a wonderful job of making these tropes into a well-written and highly high-impact read. Review: […]

Book Spotlight: Love, In English by Karina Halle

Book Spotlight: Love, In English by Karina Halle

He’s thirty-eight. I’m twenty-three. He speaks Spanish. I speak English. He lives in Spain. I live in Canada. He dresses in thousand-dollar suits. I’m covered in tattoos. He’s married and has a five-year old daughter. I’m single and can’t commit to anyone or anything. Until now.Because when they say you can’t choose who you fall in love with, boy ain’t that the fucking truth. *** To a restless dreamer like Vera Miles, it sounded like the experience of a lifetime. Instead of spending her summer i […]

#Review – The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden

PJV Quickie: THE CASQUETTE GIRLS by Alys Arden is a novel that is first and foremost about the legends and lore of New Orleans, everything else is secondary, the City is the most important character in the novel. Only a city like New Orleans, whose history is filled with stories of magic and mystery, can carry a novel like this one. When you pick up the book and read the blurb and you see that it’s set in New Orleans everything about the plot seems just a little more conceivable. Think of […]

#Review The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa – Blog Tour

PJV Quickie: I have to preface this review by stating that this book was one of the hardest books to read! But, not because of any issues with writing or plot. No, just because Kagawa brought me down paths in this book that I didn’t want to go on. She’s evil, I say! That, being said, I thought it was a great end to a series, even if it did torment me through the entirety of the book. If you haven’t picked up Julie Kagawa’s Blood of Eden series yet…well, what I’ […]
