3 Stars, borrow Self Purchased, kindle edition Technically I didn’t finish this book. However, I felt like i read enough that I could give it a fair rating.  While it was a decently written book, this book just didn’t do anything for me. The premise was a little interesting, but by the time I stopped I was getting bored.  The characters weren’t special or unique really.  This is just your typical run of the mill young adult fantasy book....

A Shiver of Light

Sep 17, 2015 by

3 Stars, borrow it. Self Purchase, Kindle Edition This book is slow moving. Parts are very repetitive of other books. However, that being said, I’m still curious to know what is going on with everyone.  At the beginning of the book, Meredith gives birth and we are introduced to the children. It takes too many chapters for them to get out of the hospital though. The plot is almost non existent. Basically Meredith and her men move from room to room through the mansion and in each room some minor thing happens.   Finally, at the end (almost literally at 90%) a HUGE thing happens (which i won’t ruin for you) that makes it worth finishing the book. Normally, I give books I like either 4 or 5’s. I don’t give as many 3’s because...

Trees #11

Jul 28, 2015 by

3 Stars, borrow it Self Purchase, Comixology At first I really liked the series. It had an awesome trans character amongst many interesting characters. Then they were all freaking killed off except this one woman who I really don’t find that interesting.  I’m a bit frustrated with the series now. And this issue was all over the place yet nothing really happened. I may give this series only a few more issues before I give up but the beginning was so good and now it’s just blah. Disapointing. Description (Comixology):A Tree stands on Orkney. Five thousand years ago, this was the center of the world....

Monster Elementary Vol 1

Jul 21, 2015 by

  3 Stars, borrow it Self Purchase, Comixology Decided to read this now because I saw the kickstarter for volume 2 and if I like this I want to be part of volume 2 kickstarter. A collection of stories of little monsters in an elementary school that gets raided by the FBI and all of the monsters have to go to human public school.  At first I really liked it and decided to donate to the second kickstarter. But by the middle of the book I was starting to get bored. This is not a young kids book that adults would like. I’m sort of regretting donating to volume 2 but maybe I’ll like that one better. Description (Comixology): When the FBI closes Desmodus, Lukos, Francesca, Rags and Gilda’s monsters-only school, they are forced...

Wytches #2

Jul 14, 2015 by

3 Stars, Borrow it Self Purchase, Comixology I’m pretty confused as to what is going on. The description from Comixology says a busload of children disapear in the woods. I really didn’t see that happening. Sailor drove a bus into the woods but there weren’t children on the bus as far as I could tell.  I liked the first issue more than is.  I bought through issue 6 since comixology had a sale on. If I have time I’ll read some more. But honestly this series is pretty confusing. I really do like the art and the colors though. I just wish the story weren’t so confusing. Description (Comixology): A busload of children disappears in the woods. A strange bite grows on a girl’s neck. And the wytches are getting closer, creeping from the...

The Wicked + The Divine #9

Jun 16, 2015 by

3 Stars, Borrow it Self Purchase, Comixology This is another seriously confusing issue. Especially in the parts that deal only with the gods. Meanwhile, Laura comes home to her parents very upset and it’s not clear why. I’m definitely not liking this story arc as much. I think, but am not completely positive, the person who was pulling the new gods to earth us finally done with the arrival of Cassandra whom appears to be at least somewhat interesting.  If the story continues to be confusing and weird, I may cancel the subscription to it.  But I still really like Laura and her interaction with the Gods so I’m not sure yet. Description (Comixology):It’s time for a private audience with Anake, she who has protected and judged the Pantheon for thousands of years. Yes,...
