Boom Baby Reviews has a New Home!

I decided it was time to get Boom Baby Reviews better sorted out, so we’ve moved to our own place at: http://www.boombabyreviews.com

Reviews by me on BBR will also now be on a new GoodReads under Bella! (All my 2015 reviews have already been moved over. The new GR is linked off the new page!)

All posts from now on will be there! Thanks for reading!

Welcome to a New Reviewer!

Bella is no longer going to be the only mouthy one here on Boom Baby Reviews. ;-) I would like everyone to welcome Christi, who will be joining me in writing some reviews and lighting things on fire! …but not really. ‘Cause that would be bad.

Welcome, Christi!

Boom Baby Review’s Best of 2014!

2014 was a really busy year for me, and I tried to amp up the reviewing. Although there were some books that weren’t quite my thing, I was really lucky to get some great books. As such, I want to give a shout out to my 4.5 and 5 Fireball reviews of 2014! Each one is linked to the review, so you can check out what I thought about it. And now, in no particularly order, they are…

Fantasy

Wizard of Ends, Book Two: Dark Creature by Vanessa Finaughty & Majra by J. Simon

Monster Lit

Waking the Merrow by Heather Rigney

Contemporary Poetry/Prose, Military

Starved for Bullets by Ryan Goodrich

Erotic Romance

The Brethren of the Coast by Barbara Devlin (Reviewed in 2014: My Lady, The Spy; The Most Unlikely Lady; One-Knight Stand)

Steampunk Action/Adventure

The Adventures of Ichabod Temperance by Ichabod Temperance (Reviewed in 2014: For the Love of Temperance; A Study in Temperance)

Superhero, Comedy

Scarlet Winters by J. Kwong

Contemporary Literary Fiction

The First Noble Truth by C. Lynn Murphy

Historical Fiction

Agnes Canon’s War by Deborah Lincoln

…and that was the best of 2014. Thank you to all the authors and readers who made this a great reading year. I’ve got the proverbial stack of books already to get 2015 kicked off with a bang, so watch this space for more books and more reviews and more everything!

Happy 2015!

Toto, I Don’t Think We’re in Books Anymore…

Oh, I couldn’t help myself with that one, but it’s true! I’m branching out into some reviews of movies now too, although those will not be posted here. Instead, I’m going to be posting on a site called InfoBarrel. (Under the pen name Carys Rose.) You’ll be seeing me share these things on my social media in the future. Right now, I’m doing a series called “Netflixian Horror,” where I’m going to review the horror movies I’ve found and watched on Netflix.

My first post is now live there, and more are to come! The first review is on a movie called Entity, so if you like horror movies, check out my new reviews!

Netflixian Horror: Review of ‘Entity’ [2012]

I also have a plan to start a series of posts about literature to cinema, looking at classic novels that have been turned into movies–starting with a couple of my favorites, such as Jane Eyre, Sense & Sensibility, and Persuasion.

I know that I usually only post reviews on here, but today I was interviewed as a reviewer! I thought it was a lot of fun. Check it out:

I’ve moved!

I had started my review blog on blogspot, but find a wordpress site off my own site is easier and so I’ve moved! You can view the old site and the reviews on it: here.
