…and just like Trump, I’m sure the audience for my first official blog post is going to be the biggest blog crowd ever. EVER. Where’s my own personal Sean Spicer when I need him? Or like, the actual Sean Spicer. Good Ol’ Spicey doesn’t seem to be doing much these days, maybe he could use the work, here reporting on my…blog post…crowd…you know what? Never mind.
So, after much hmmm-ing and uhmmm-ing, and also sometimes not thinking about it for long stretches of time, I have decided to take my casual book blogging over from tumblr.com and create something a little bit more “hobbyist.” Bare with me as I work out the kinks…or don’t. Whatever. You do you, booboo.
I’m just here to have fun and read and be immersed in murder. Like, other people’s murders. Not my own, and certainly not ones I’m involved in. Just to be clear.
I am a textbook true crime addict, and my genre of preference when I pick up a story is anything dark and twisty, so a combination of the two is exactly what you will find around these parts.
Some things I say you might agree with me on, other things might lead you to believe I’m a salty bitch. And you’re right, I am. I’ve got two teenagers at home (Stepmother of No Year Ever), two pets that require stupid amounts of attention and a husband, who, when he wants something for “background noise” while we winkwink nudgenudge, will put on a nature documentary that fills our bedrooms with the soothing, gentle tones of seals being killed.
I read because I need an escape, because I love writing and the art of it, and because I want to be immersed in a world full of puzzles and mystery. If you are looking for sugar-coated, polite reviews, I can tell you I don’t have it in me. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long reading career. Skills that make me a nightmare for shitty books. If you let my daughter go now….
Speaking of which, something else you might want to know about me is that I love pop culture references! And gifs. Lots and lots of gifs! Gifs help to soothe the sting of the one and two star ratings that I hand out like Halloween candy MUAHAHahahadkjfdfg *coughing, choking*…
So sit back, relax, maybe get a little high, and enjoy my ranting. I’ll try to make it as entertaining as possible.
Here’s a quick rundown of all the books I’ll be trying to get through in the next couple months, thanks to Netgalley.
Until next time, Booknerds…
