The Most Useless New Year’s Resolutions

We all make them: Useless New Year’s Resolutions. I’m guilty. Lose five pounds by March, join a gym, stop cursing…to name a few. We’re even guilt of making ridiculous ones when it comes to reading and blogging. Here are a few that I think might not be feasible, what do you think?

Cover Junk – Holiday Edition

Ready to talk about some covers? Some Apocalypse covers? Yes! I am. I love cover snark editions, it’s the evil in me. But, really – I wish I could make everyone’s covers pretty. If I was a millionaire it would be my philanthropy.  But, sadly, I’m not a millionaire. Today we are dishing it out for the Apocalypse cover variety. All covers were found just perusing the dregs of Amazon. They link back to Amazon, so technically I’m giving them promos. You’re welcome.

How to Miserably Fail at #bookstagram – Dishing Junk

Bookstagram(mers) are the new COOL kids of the book blogging world. First, the Book Tubers came along and pissed all in our cheerios and now it’s them + the bookstagram peeps.

Seeing their pictures will all the stuff in and thinking – to compete with that I gotta spend a crap ton of money on tchotchkes that are gonna get full of dust and sit on my shelf taking up precious book space. But – if you are dying to get in on the craze, I have so not-so-good tips just for you!

Why am I on Facebook? Dishing Junk Special

This week on Facebook seems to be – let’s challenge people to do stupid shit week. I’ve been challenged to do this, challenged to do that…challenged to show I love my husband. Challenged to show I like to eat. Challenged to show I’m a good mom. Challenged to show how many people I’ve had sex with…every time someone tags me on one of these things, I wonder ‘Why am I on Facebook?’ Then I scroll down and I get lost in the insanity again and again. It makes me feel things that are uncomfortable, it makes me do stupid stuff – post stupid stuff – and try way to hard. Today, I ask myself – why am I on Facebook? And my only explanation is that it’s the Devil and it’s sucked me in.

Here are ten reasons why I wonder if Facebook is bringing about the apocalypse…or at least Idiocracy.

Stupid Sh** Authors Post in Response to Negative Reviews

I get it. I really do get it. One star reviews can be painful. Especially if they get personal. Authors get them, if you don’t have any, thank your diety of choice. I’m currently up to 14 1-star reviews on Amazon for all the books, but the majority are for RUN. Not that I’m counting, I went and looked for this post.  I won’t look on Goodreads. You know why? I don’t want to. I don’t care. I really don’t care. You might think I’m bending the truth there, especially when you see that my books have been called, “horrible,” “porn with zombies running around,” and “One of the worst books I’ve ever tried to read.” But, really, it’s nothing. I wrote a book. Enjoying a book is a matter of taste. My book didn’t satisfy those people’s taste. If I had a freak out over every 1-star review I would be a mental case. And even if I feel a twinge – I remind myself – they read my book. My book! They read it!!!!

Blogger Pet Peeves – A Dishing Junk Special

It seems to happen more and more, either my propensity for “looking away” has diminished, or people just DGAF anymore. Blogging has exploded, petered out and then exploded again with a veritable lunacy of every make, model, and variety of crazy. Not to mention the authors that have flooded the scene, all becoming more and more prevalent with each insane book they publish. It used to be that an incident happened every now and again, somebody would lose their shit and the internet would go bonkers and then it would die down and we would all forget. Now – it’s like every day. Has the world gone mad? Or is it just that our little part of the universe finally caught up to the Kardashian mentality of the rest of the world that we thought we were to good to be a part of?

Dishing Junk: Classics I Didn’t Read!

So as a book reviewer and English teacher and self-proclaimed book geek, I am some what of a fraud. There are classics, you know the books everyone should have read, that I simply haven’t read and for the most part don’t want to read. So I thought I’d own it here and now. What do you think? Should we still read the classics? Are they necessary to make a well rounded reader? When I think about the power of reference, I can acknowledge that there is a certain necessity in reading the classics. So here is my list o’shame. The books I haven’t read, and to redeem myself, some classics I have read. How about you? Are you Team Classics? Or Team Meh? Do you have that one book you should have read, and you were like “nope!”?

Dishing Junk: Crazy Erotica Books – You Can’t Unsee This!

There are some crazy books out there, then there are some off-the-charts, dipped in cray-cray, sipping tea with my crazy Aunt, crazy books. And those topics are usually within the Erotica genre. I hate to stereotypical – but it can’t be helped. You put a T-Rex as your main character in your book – and any other genre it’s fine. You put a T-Rex in an erotica novel as the main character – and well then it tops the whacked out territory.
