2017 wasn’t the greatest reading year for me. It’s strange saying that considering I met my Good Reads challenge, 42 books, but it’s true. You see, last year was the first year that I incorporated graphic novels into my reading challenge having always just counted the novels, but I figured they’re books too and I read them so they should be on the list. I … Continue reading The Reading Challenge That Was/The Reading Challenge That Is
I watch a lot of television. No, seriously. I watch a lot of television. At any point in the year, you’ll find that my DVR is bursting with shows or my Netflix’s “Previously Viewed” will be a who’s who of popular television shows. I just love tv. It has become my go-to source of entertainment. A lot of that has to do with this golden age … Continue reading Best of 2017- TV
When I was composing my lists for the best of 2017 I arrogantly thought that movies would be the easiest to make up. On the whole, 2017 wasn’t really a banner year for cinema. There were a number of big releases that hit and had staying power but it seemed that the majority of films that were released this year kind of came and went. … Continue reading Best of 2017- Movies
Geeklings, it’s the day after Christmas and I hope all of you had the best possible holiday ever. I missed you guys over our short little holiday break, only a few days honestly, and I know that there was no Week In Geek yesterday but I’ve got something a little better for you this week. That’s right, it’s the final week of the year which means here I Am Geek … Continue reading Best of 2017- I Am Geek
Geeklings, I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack. Did you miss me?! I certainly missed you guys. I think that’s the longest I’ve gone without writing in quite some time, but it was worth it. I had a lovely vacation with the Adorable Creature as we traveled to the West Coast to visit her family. I drank some awesome wine. Saw some awesome sights, including the Full House house. And enjoyed awesome company. … Continue reading Did You Miss Me?
It’s been over a year since Batman removed the Comedian’s button from the walls of the Batcave. Over a year since I read Rebirth #1 in my apartment, my Fortress of Nerditude, and geeked out hard as the events of Rebirth unfolded across my eyeholes. I’ve said it a number of times before but Rebirth #1 might be the best single issue of a comic I’ve read in quite some time. … Continue reading Doomsday Clock #1 Review- The Most Important Comic Of 2017
Geeklings, a very happy Saturday to you all! I know, this is kind of out of the norm. A Saturday post? Really? Yes, really my friends! I told you I’m trying to make a better effort to get more than three posts a week up on the site and this is me committing to that effort. Plus, I finished building my Evil Rick and Morty … Continue reading Holy Crap, the Year Is Ending?!
I abandoned a book today. No, not on the street or anything but in the sense where I stopped reading it over three hundred pages in. Just stopped. Couldn’t do it anymore. I looked at myself and asked the very serious question, “are you really going to finish this”, and wasn’t surprised to find out that the answer was no. My heart just wasn’t into it. … Continue reading Woeful Confessions From A Reader
I’m a little late on this one, usually, this column comes out within the first week of the month but here we are on the 12th and I’m finally getting to the books I read. Better late than never I suppose. At least I got it in before the month ended. I’m telling you Geeklings, vacation is going to help the writing schedule here so … Continue reading 2017 Reading List- June
I’m starting to wonder if the starting of this list has some how jinxed my reading progress for the year. It feels like month after month I come here and “complain” that I’m not reading fast enough or at the pace I usually am. Is it because I’ve got a lot of things going on and just don’t have the time I used to read? … Continue reading 2017 Reading List- May
