5 on Friday: Alternatives to 50 Shades of Grey

When I wrote my post on tropes in romance novels, I promises you I was working on a list of alternatives to 50 Shades of Grey. Well dear readers, that day has come. I’ve read bad novel after bad novel, treadging through to find only the books I felt warranted being listed on Pure Geekery.

Playing a Book, Reading a Game

When I was on staycation this summer I started reading Amped by Daniel H. Wilson and playing Deus Ex: Human
