Yeah, so I wanted to read a book written for little kids today, you got a problem with that? <.< Actually, what I got a problem with is I screwed up and didn’t post the rec journal first today. D: I’m a sham!

Review of Pierside By Bookplayer · 7:51pm Aug 20th, 2016

Hey, folks!

So as you might be aware, bookplayer—who you should all know is awesome and you should be reading her already if you’re not—has a novel coming out this Monday. She was nice enough to give me an advanced review copy of it and asked me to give my thoughts on it, and I jumped at the chance.

My thoughts on:Perfected (Perfected #1) by Kate Jarvik Birch · 3:41am Jun 23rd, 2015

As soon as the government passed legislation allowing humans to be genetically engineered and sold as pets, the rich and powerful rushed to own beautiful girls like Ella. Trained from birth to be graceful, demure, and above all, perfect, these “family companions” enter their masters’ homes prepared to live a life of idle luxury.

Book Review: "Uprooted" by Naomi Novik · 12:18pm Mar 18th, 2019

The Dragon’s just a wizard, not an actual dragon, but he might as well be one. Once every ten years, he comes down from his tower and takes one of the teenage girls from the village of Dvernik away. When the girls, now women, finally leave his tower with dowries after those ten years, they always claim he doesn’t do anything to them, but they never stay in the valley. The Dragon protects Dvernik from the Wood, and does it well, but he’s always something other, and he still takes the girls. He

Review Incoming · 6:57pm Jul 13th, 2019

First, I need to express a little bit of disappointment. While I appreciate FanOfMostEverything expressing interest, I was hoping for more than one person responding. With such a lack of a response... honestly, it feels like no one really cares.

That said, the review is something that I really want to do, and this book is one I've wanted to talk about since I first learned about it. To that end, the review is still going to occur. And hopefully, some of you will actually enjoy it.

Spotting Narcissistic Traits in Others and Ourselves — Why Is It Always About You? The Seven Deadly Sins of Narcissism (A Book Review) · 5:04am Jan 28th, 2018


By Sandy Hotchkiss (Reviewed by B)

This summary (if you can call it that) was written some time ago. Please forgive the many hiccups in prose.

Narcissism is the inability to deal with shame. Therefore, the cure to anyone possessing narcissistic traits is to cure the shame hidden behind them, which is a journey in of itself.

Book Review: Ponyville Confidential · 1:53pm Aug 18th, 2017

It should come as no surprise that I like to read. On top of that, I like to TALK about (or, well, given the internet, type about) what I'm reading. Unfortunately, I don't have too many real life friends who are into pony, and so I usually don't bring it up to them. (The term 'closeted' comes to mind). And so, lacking any other outlet ... how about a book review?

Something to Read: "Silent Hall" · 3:20am Sep 6th, 2016

I recently picked out this little gem while perusing a Barnes & Noble in Yonkers. I had some spare cash and I haven't had anything to read for a few months (except of course what I could find here on this site), and I needed a dose of some classic fiction to pull my thoughts away from weird fiction. That doesn't mean, however, that I didn't buy a four-inch thick collection of lesser-known writings by H.P. Lovecraft that I happened across. Now, on to a short review of the fantasy novel "Silent

Odd.

Original Fiction Review #2 – Pierside · 10:28pm Feb 2nd, 2017

You might know Bookplayer as one of the more prominent writers on the site. You might know her as an AppleDash or TwiJack shipper. You might know her as someone who has a deep, abiding love for the character of Applejack. Or you might know her as one of the major literary theorists on FIMFiction who has some very good thoughts about writing.

Heya blog readers! Today we’re doing another chapter of Threadbare and finally catching up with A.P.O.N.I.’s patreon rewards! If you haven’t been following these, I’ve been reading a chapter here and there from the first book of a series.

Bad Book Review 11 (The Guardian, Chapter 13) · 7:25pm Jul 25th, 2019

I'm starting to doubt the idea of reviewing the entire book. I may just finish the first story, then give single post summaries of the other two.

Anyway, last time, we were actually given some backstory for are killer angel, learning he was once a human child that had been forced to fight in a war at the age of six.

Bad Book Review 16 (The Guardian, full review) · 2:45am Jul 31st, 2019

Before I get to the story, I first want to announce a decision. I am going to continue with the other two stories included in the book, but I'm going to take a break. Maybe October? Sooner, later. Not entirely sure. So for those who want to know, yes, you will be able to find out the rest without having to look for the book yourself.

Okay. So, let's get to it.

Bad Book Review 08 (The Guardian, Chapter 09) · 8:11pm Jul 22nd, 2019

Previously on Ink Hoof's Book Review: we were introduced to Christina Urbain and her (maybe) six (?) year old son Joseph. Cameron tells Kirkland that their killer is Gabriel, a rogue guardian angel who is convincing people to kill themselves as an act of mercy, Cameron is an angel to stop him, and Kirkland thinks the whole thing is preposterous.

Bad Book Review 15 (The Guardian, Chapter 17) · 2:08am Jul 30th, 2019

And so we reach, the final chapter. The one where everything is supposed to culminate and wrap up. In this case, both the climax, and the denouement.

A lot of pressure for FOUR PAGES, don't you think?
