Introducing Soapboxing

Soapboxing on Tynga's Reviews

Hello, everyone, Jenn here! I'm quite excited about this post because we are kicking off a new feature here on Team Tynga's Reviews! It's called Soapboxing and it's our new platform for talking about books and book-related topics that matter to us. Soapboxing posts may be rants, they may highlight awesome or terrifying trends, or they might tackle bookish issues on our minds...The content will vary but the posts will (hopefully) never be boring!

Why "Soapboxing"? The nerdy academic in me says the best way to explain is by offering a definition:

soapbox: an improvised platform used by a self-appointed, spontaneous, or informal orator; broadly : something that provides an outlet for delivering opinions [Miriam-Webster Online]

I can't think of a more appropriate title for this feature, can you?

I've been dying to write more opinion pieces for the blog and so we're going to give it a try! I had so much fun writing Why Whedonites Will Love STORMDANCER back in September and now we're going to make these types of posts a regular occurrence. In fact, starting today, Soapboxing will be a monthly feature! And don't worry, it won't just be me! =)

We hope you'll enjoy it and will most definitely be grateful for any feedback you'd care to offer.

To kick things off, I'm going talk about something that's been on my mind for a while, and that seems rather timely given the goings on around DEAD EVER AFTER. Curious? Come and check it out!

Born and raised in the Toronto area, Jenn moved to St. John's, Newfoundland, eight years ago for school. She's still in school (thankfully on another degree!), now trapped in her dissertation. When she's not dissertating, which happens more often than it should, Jenn spends her time reading, watching movies, playing volleyball, travelling, and enjoying the local music scene. Her latest addictions: yoga and Almond Crunch cereal.
