Time once again to visit a holiday book for the season, and keeping with the inadvertent theme, we’re going to look at another graphic novel: Note that this is not a comic/novelization covering the same story of the movie, though it is set in the same universe. If you like the movie, you’ll probably like … More SJ Reads: Krampus Shadow of Saint Nicholas
It’s time to see what I’ve been up to whilst I was Nano-ing last month! No matter the time of year, this is a great read that combines family and the supernatural. As always, Raina Telgemeier weaves interesting plot with relatable characters. Read my full review for Books by Violet here! Also for Books … More Free fic, reviews, and all that fun stuff
I really considered how to do SJ reads this month. I have an addiction to Christmas/holiday fiction, and there are a TON of great titles out there. My notes are also scattered everywhere, so I really need to re-sort and dig through. I decided to keep with the unintentional theme to finish out the … More SJ Reads: Marvel Zombies Christmas Carol
I know, I need to get caught up, though this time I do have a decent-ish excuse. Writing has taken me away a bit this month, but I’ll get to that on another post. In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been up to: This tends to be one of my stress/comfort reading series, and it’s … More New Reviews! #manga #comics
For whatever reason, I haven’t really been getting into too much that falls into the realm of horror this year, until very recently. A friend and I got talking about manga and I mentioned that I admittedly fall more into the shojo-type reader (for better or worse), and because he knew I really like horror … More SJ Reads Bonus: Tomie by Junji Ito

Time to see what I’ve been up to this week! I’m looking at some creepy YA graphic novel offerings this month, so of course I had to go with the classic Anya’s Ghost for Books by Violet! A tale that really hits on the outsider theme in school/teen years, it also includes a really unique … More Review Roundup!
New stuff for your Tuesday! Note – I’m still catching up on personal correspondence from the last week. I’m working on a few possible future things lately, so I’m balancing that with trying to get media organized again, and some other things, as well. So I am getting there.

So since September is my birthday month (I will take your adulations in the form of praise, reviews, and other related worship), this month’s SJ reads will cover stories that have really reached up through the nostrils and grabbed me by the soul. Today, we look at the Courtney Crumrin series by Ted Naifeh. … More SJ Reads: Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things
So, as we all know, I love vampires in general, especially when they’re done well. I’ve mentioned American Vampire on here before, but I recently reread/caught up, and this just affirms that more people need to read this series. The concept of vampires through history isn’t a new one, but it’s really interesting how … More SJ Reads: American Vampire
