Bitchfest: Ten Years of Cultural Criticism from the Pages of Bitch Magazine

Christin, November 6, 2012

A great collection of fun, reader-friendly articles from the first 10 years of Bitch magazine's existence. These authors cover a wide range of subjects and aspects of pop culture with wit and intelligence. A great, motivating read!

The 4400: Wet Work
The 4400: Wet Work

This is like a stand alone episode of the show. Most of the focus of this book is on original characters and they're well written and given enough depth that they really hold your attention. A great read for anyone who misses the show, like me!

The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente
The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There

Christin, October 6, 2012

A worthy sequel to 'The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making'!

In this one, September finally makes her way back to Fairyland to find that people's shadows have gone missing! Figuring this is her fault on account of the way she gave away her own shadow the last time she was there, September vows to make things right and sets off for Fairyland Below. It's got the same charming kinds of characters, lovely use of language and wonderful fairytale quality that the first one has, so I was really, really pleased.

Finding Serenity: Anti-Heroes, Lost Shepherds, and Space Hookers in Joss Whedon's "Firefly" by Glenn Yeffeth and Jane Espenson
Finding Serenity: Anti-Heroes, Lost Shepherds, and Space Hookers in Joss Whedon's

Christin, October 5, 2012

Another excellent collection of essays from Smart Pop! This collection of essays span a huge range of subjects from hilarious parody to deep philosophical ponderings. Some of these essays explored ideas that I'd had myself (though much more coherently!) and other essays I vehemently disagreed with. Either way, they made me think. And best of all, they reminded me just how much I love this 'verse!

Savages. Don Winslow by Don Winslow
Savages. Don Winslow

Christin, October 1, 2012

This is a story about two independent pot growers in SoCal who are being targeted for incorporation by a Mexical cartel, so of course it's 11 kinds of messed up. But I enjoyed it. I loves me a good OT3 anyway, so the relationship between Ben, Chon, and O is interesting to me and I totally understood why the boys would do what they did when she was being threatened. The writing is very SoCal and full of slang and pop culture references, so it's got a sort of breezy feel to it, even when the events it's describing are kind of horrifying. It was a quick, exciting read full of twists and turns. I liked it!
