THERE ARE SPOILERS HERE. You have been warned. Welcome to The Percy Jackson Project! Today is the long-awaited part two of my discussion of Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters. I got a bit distracted reviewing other books and my soul was temporarily sucked into the swirling vortex that is 2020, but […]
I am late to the Red, White & Royal Blue train — the book came out last year, and that is when many of my friends read and gushed over the book. I resisted because I thought the book was too pink, but eventually I bought a copy and let it sit on my shelf […]
As I closed this book, just having read the final words of the last paragraph, I was struck by the sheer range of this text. In many ways, The Vanishing Half feels like a book I have been yearning for and a book I did not know that I needed, and every book I read […]
Every time I read a book it changes, and I am changed by it. A year passed between my two readings of Migrations and what a year it has been. One of the central themes of this book is the death of almost all wildlife on Earth and the destruction that humanity is wrecking upon […]
THERE ARE SPOILERS HERE. You have been warned. Welcome to the Percy Jackson Project! Today I am discussing book two of Percy Jackson and the Olympians — The Sea of Monsters. I really liked The Sea of Monsters. It was a book that I finished quickly — speeding through books is a bit my style […]
Call me dramatic but I swear this is true – it was a dark and stormy night and when I sat down to read Mexican Gothic, wine glass in hand and candles burning merrily on my altar. Captivating in the truest sense of the word, I could not help but be charmed by Noemí, our […]
I must admit it: I was never a big fan of Percy Jackson. I was a little bit too old for the series by the time I started reading the books, and my interest petered out by book three. I thought that the style of the books was cheesy, I was not really that invested […]
[Meta Note] Some familiarity with Doctor Who is required to understand this review, namely the basic character of the Thirteenth Doctor as portrayed by actress Jodie Whittaker. The thing I love most about Doctor Who novels is the chance they give to explore in depth the characters which aren’t always given enough of a chance […]
Over the course of my time writing this blog I’ve reviewed a lot of books, many of which center blackness including books that discuss racism as a larger topic and thus also include marginalization on a wider scale. I thought that, seeing as how this is my last post during Black History Month, it would […]
I seriously considered sitting under a streetlamp on a cold November night so that I could finish reading this book after the library closed, but my partner insisted on making me walk home first, much to my chagrin. Gods of Jade and Shadow is a book that utterly seized my soul, and left me feeling […]
One thing that I’ve always loved about Doctor Who is the way that people unfamiliar with the Doctor and how they operate react to them, and so I loved that The Good Doctor starts off from the perspective of someone utterly bewildered about what is going on.
I can safely say that I’ve never read a book that caught me and drew me in quite like This Is How You Lose the Time War. Short though it is, this novella lasted both forever and only an instant, packing depth and intrigue into its pressed pages, with not a word wasted and no corners cut.
Given that there’s no new episodes of Doctor Who until 2020, I decided to read some books that cover the adventures of The Doctor, Yaz, Ryan, and Graham. I started with Combat Magicks because the book is about witchcraft and battles between Attila the Hun and the Roman Empire. How could I possibly resist?
I’ve been on a bit of a nonfiction kick lately but This Is Kind of an Epic Love Story brought me right back in to remembering why I love YA fiction just as much. There are many epic love stories that are threaded throughout this book, which is representative of so many kinds of love. […]
