Ruin and Rising, Book Release Party

| Posted by | No Comments

Ruin and Rising @ The Last Bookstore Leigh Bardugo’s Grisha trilogy ends with Ruin and Rising and I got to go to the book launch party at The Last Bookstore in Los Angeles to celebrate with the author and her fans. This is also my first time at The Last Bookstore and it is a glorious store. Non-commercial bookstores with personality is super rare these days and I love that this place exist. It was a lot of fun to be there with the YA crowd and fellow Grisha fans.

Let’s admit it, geeks. These days, we take ourselves, our community and our fandom way too seriously. We are a sensitive bunch with teddy bear hearts and we want to love our comic books so bad it makes us cry some times. With that said, a new web series premiered online today and it is called Geek Cred. Now, the word ‘cred’ already implies things on many different levels.  It’s a brave word to use in a title that also has the word ‘Geek’ in it and for many, it might be taken on as a challenge.

You can watch the first episode now online but I had seen the show last Sunday at the premiere party with the cast and crew at Busby’s in Los Angeles. How did I feel after I saw it? I felt pretty darn good.

The Rise of O-Girl
Anita B. Rutten

Trigger warnings: This review contains explicit content (sex!) and discussion about rape. Continue at your own risk.

The Rise of O-Girl is a short story about a super heroine whose secret power is lightning orgasms that fry her partner to a crisp. She’s on a vendetta to find her sister’s murderer and will stop at nothing to get her revenge. Her origin story as a super hero is also covered.

At 22 pages, this is a pretty quick read for anyone, and if you’re just in it for titillation, you won’t have to wait long. There are lots of sex scenes starting from page 1. I’d say the price point of $2.99 is a bit high for 22 pages, but I’m a bit of a cheapskate when it comes to buying books.
