Grumpy Book Grrrl

a writer and reader

I’m currently blogging with All in the Pantheon as the sea Goddess Amphitrite.

About me: I’m not actually all that grumpy. I just imagine I’m approaching that pinnacle of witty and sophisticated salty that will make me internet famous, but really, it’s just that I’m naturally an irritable person (which isn’t at all clever or intriguing).

My motto is: Bring on the Weird! I like weird books, and I cannot lie. At Goodreads, I’m a moderator of two groups: The MacHalo Asylum for Mischief and Mayhem (MAM²) and Reverse Harem Revolution. Wait, three groups: You Are Never Too Old To Young Adult. Why do I do this to myself.

I’m a wanderer at heart. I read everything from Young Adult to paranormal romance, fantasy, horror, dystopian, sci-fi, historical fiction… almost anything! My favorite book boyfriends tend to have fangs, my spirit animal is Grumpy Cat (RIP), Grumpy Bear, Oscar the Grouch…

You get the idea. I love potty humor, and…pizza is life. My Goodreads profile.

I love 80s music, especially goth. My favorite fandoms are Stranger Things, Star Trek, The OA, Game of Thrones, True Blood, Marvel (Thor Ragnarok), and X-Men.

I write here to express myself and open up on topics I can’t verbally communicate about in real life. I am very open-minded and tolerant. I try not to take things too seriously, but judgy people bring out the rage in me.



Update August 31, 2018: The blog name has been changed from Dust Off Your MacHalo to Grumpy Book Grrrl. While still a member of the Goodreads group, the general book tastes and blog topics have sort of branched off. So, while you will still see reviews of books read with the MacHalos, you will see a lot more Young Adult here and various other rambling topics. Thanks for following! It is sincerely appreciated!
