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...

Wind/Pinball

Aug 17, 2015 by

  3.5 borrow. Buy.Borrow   Self Purchase, Kindle Edition   Normally, I have a thing about reading introductions, they usually just bore the crap out of me. But this is a Murakami book. He’s my favorite author at the moment. It was interesting to read for a change (probably because I like his writing so much). My only issue was that it was a weird switch from reading about the author and writing and then starting one of the two stories in the book which deals with a writer. It confused me for a moment or two. This book is two early stories of Murakami combined into a book.   Hear the Wind Sing- a little novella about a young man (whom I think is a writer?). Of course there is mention of music...

Jedi Academy: The Phantom Bully...

Aug 11, 2015 by

3.5 Stars, Borrow it Self Purchase, Kindle Edition In this volume, Roan is about to enter his final year at Jedi Academy the middle school. Hopefully this doesn’t mean an end to the series. I love how favorite characters from Star Wars appear (R-2, Yoda). In between pages of the comics are flyers and various other materials (including pages from Roan’s journal) from the school. They are very sweet and fun.   However, the series does seem to get a bit repetitive and predictable. While this one was fun, it was really only an average rating....

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...
