Comic Book vs. Movie – V for Vendetta

Over the past week, I've been reviewing the titles that I read during the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. Today, however, in honor of Guy Fawkes Day (otherwise known as Bonfire Night), I've decided to take a quick break from my Readathon reviews to shine a spotlight on one of the books I read this week...V…

Cemetery Girl

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to participate in the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon. Even though the Readathon completely destroyed my typical sleep schedule, which has led to a significant number of impromptu naps over the past couple of days, I really enjoyed having the opportunity to spend the day reading...especially since I was…

Comic Book vs. Movie – Aliens vs. Predator

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I had a wonderful time participating in the Dewey's 24 Hour Reverse Readathon on August 7th and 8th. I had the opportunity to read a lot of great books, and I've enjoyed sharing them with you during the past couple of weeks. If you missed out on any of…

Movie vs. Book vs. Comic Books – Labyrinth

Do you have specific movies that you like to watch when you are ill, or during times when you are sad or stressed out? I certainly do! While I tend to spend more time reading and writing than watching movies or television, there have been many times over the past several months when I've found…

Comic Book vs. Movie – Bloodshot

When you see a trailer for a movie based on a book, how do you react? I usually have one of three possible responses. If the movie is based on a book I loved, my reaction will either be, "I can't wait to see that!" or "Oh no! They're going to ruin it!" But when…

POPSUGAR Reading Challenge Update: Week Eleven

Happy Pi Day, everyone! After completely disregarding my reading goals last week in favor of indulging in excessive amounts of Harry Potter fanfiction, it probably won't surprise you to learn that this week I threw myself back into the POPSUGAR Reading Challenge with a vengeance. My goal for the week was to complete some of…

Happy Venom-tine’s Day!

Happy Venom-tine's Day everyone! Today has been a wonderful celebration of my favorite Marvel Comics symbiote. My celebration officially began early this morning with a cup of hot chocolate and a fantastic Venom story. Venom: Lethal Protector, by James R. Tuck, is a novelization of a comic book story originally released in six parts (created…

Comic Book vs. Movie – Snowpiercer

While my personal policy is to read books prior to seeing the movie adaptation, there are times when that isn't always possible. This often happens to me because a friend or family member invites me out to see a movie before I've had a chance to read (or finish reading) the book. But sometimes, I…

Banned Comic Books: Bone

Happy National Comic Book Day! As some of my followers already know, I have a thing about comic books...namely that I adore them. I first started reading comic books when I was a kid. I used to be able to get new issues at the grocery store newsstand (and collector packages at Toys 'R Us),…
