Book Review: My Plain Jane

Who in heaven likes these three ladies so much that we get yet ANOTHER glorious novel? You may think you know the story. Penniless orphan Jane Eyre begins a new life as a governess at Thornfield Hall, where she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester—and, Reader, she marries him. Or does she? This book.  I…

Book Review: Queens of Geek

My review for this falls between 1-2 stars because this was a weird book. I was surprised I didn’t like this book, but reasons are as follows: – I genuinely had a hard time figuring out if I was reading from Taylor or Charlie’s POV. As the book moved on, their characters became so similar,…

Book Review: Orange Vol. 1

Orange was a calming relief to the YA of today’s world. On the day that Naho begins 11th grade, she recieves a letter from herself ten years in the future. At first, she writes it off as a prank, but as the letter’s predictions come true one by one Naho realizes that the letter might…

Avatar the Last Airbender: The Promise Book Review

This graphic novel mini series is, to my knowledge, the first of the comics to be written.  It takes place after the third season and starts to build on some of the questions the ending of season 3 left.  This review will cover all three volumes of The Promise. Aang and friends must join together…

March Wrap-Up

This month improved so much over February, I almost cried, though the Avatar comics are starting to be more meh. Avatar the Last Airbender: Smoke and Shadow Parts 1-3 by Michael Dante DiMartino and Co. I enjoyed this miniseries immensely because of the power struggles in the Avatar world that it showed (specifically with Fire Nation colonies). …

Book Review: Obsidio

Going into this, I had no idea what to expect.  We only had bit-sized glances at the issues going on in this universe, and Obsidio ties the bow perfectly.   Kady, Ezra, Hanna, and Nik narrowly escaped with their lives from the attacks on Heimdall station and now find themselves crammed with 2,000 refugees on…

Book Review: Heart of Iron

Heart of Iron blew me away.  Seriously.  I don’t know if it’s because I hadn’t had a good book to read in so long or if it was THAT good (it was that good), but WOW. Seventeen-year-old Ana is a scoundrel by nurture and an outlaw by nature. Found as a child drifting through space…

Avatar the last Airbender: The Search Book Review

One of the BIGGEST questions in Avatar has finally been answered: What happened to Zuko’s mum? So this book had a bit of a deus ex machina, BUT I DON’T CARE BECAUSE URSA AND ZUKO AND JUST YAS. -coughs- Onto the review. You get to see Azula’s full-on craziness in this.  I don’t get what happened…

Book Review: Nemesis

Why are there not more historical/cultural books out there?  I can think of only two non-Rick Riordan books off the top of my head that are Egyptian-esque, and one is a historical drama and the other one is Nemesis by Anna Banks. The princess didn’t expect to fall in love–with her nemesis. Princess Sepora of Serubel…

Book Review: Sky in the Deep

I’m trying to stay away from hyped books because they keep breaking my heart (looking at you Divergent and ACOTAR), but Sky in the Deep WOULD NOT STOP popping up on my Instagram feed.  That and my dragon friend was 1000% obsessed with it and already started doing cosplay photos for the book (it doesn’t come out…
