Some time ago I was inspired by BookTuber Wish Fulfillment to try a new way to choose what to read next. I never know what to read next, and choosing a book sometimes actually keeps me from reading. I just don’t know what to choose so I keep putting it off. Continue reading What should I read next?
I’ve been reading a lot. However, I’ve been mostly reading comics, manga, and the occasional Wimpy Kid book. I don’t know what it is about comics and manga that make me not want to write reviews. Actually, the thought of having to review them is a bit overwhelming. Having to review an entire series is scary! Not to mention that I’ll probably forget a lot of important details along the way! It also seems a bit pointless to review volume by volume since there’s really not much I can talk about that way. Continue reading How does one review manga and comics?
I’d like to thank the academy of delivery sciences, my lovely robot, Bender, and most of all, The Green Onion for nominating me for the Sunshine Award.
It’s been a while since I’ve done an award post (because I’m too lazy) so let’s get to it! Continue reading Sunshine Blogger Award
Ghostly Echoes is so far the most exciting of the Jackaby books. Side stories have been resolved, characters and their background stories have been fully developed and stakes have been raised.
Not to generalize, but the conclusions to most of the series I’ve read so far have been a tad predictable. It’s nice to find something like the Jackaby novels that keep me guessing. I don’t have an inkling as to how this series is going to end, and I love it. Continue reading [Mini Review]Ghostly Echoes (Jackaby #3) by William Ritter
This short movie couldn’t be more perfect. Fellow book lovers, I highly recommend you watch this short clip!
I wonder if this is how our unread books feel, 😦
“Harper and Tolliver are experts at getting in, getting paid, and then getting out of town fast – because the people who hire Harper have a funny habit of not really wanting t know what she has to tell them. At first, the little Ozarks town of Sarne seems like no exception. A teenage girl has gone missing, and Harper knows almost immediately that this girl is dead. But the secrets of her death – and the secrets of the town – are deep enough that even Harper’s special ability can’t uncover them. With hostility welling up all around them, she and Tolliver would like nothing better than to be on their way. But then another woman is murdered. And the killer’s not finished yet…” – Good reads Continue reading [Min Review] Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris
“London, 1898. The Victorian Era draws to a close and the twentieth century approaches. It is a time of great change and an age of stagnation, a period of chaste order and ignoble chaos. It is an era in need of champions.
In this amazingly imaginative tale, literary figures from throughout time and various bodies of work are brought together to face any and all threats to Britain. Allan Quatermain, Mina Murray, Captain Nemo, Dr. Henry Jekyll and Edward Hyde and Hawley Griffin ( the Invisible Man) form a remarkable legion of intellectual aptitude and physical prowess: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.” – Goodreads Continue reading [Review] The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Vol. 1 by Alan Moore
Life for the Baudelaire children just keeps getting worse. Count Olaf is still at large and after the Baudelaire inheritance, Mr. Poe is still completely incompetent, and the children are yet again placed in the care of someone they don’t even know. To make matters worse, their new guarding doesn’t treat them like children, much less family. He treats them like employees, employees that get paid in coupons and get gum for lunch. Continue reading [Mini Review] A Series of Unfortunate Events: The Miserable Mill by Lemony Snicket
