Review: A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

It’s not often I go back to a series I abandoned years ago. I generally carry on with whatever series have my attention, finish them or go looking for new ones. Especially when it comes to SFF and the constant influx of new, exciting voices are always coming in to the genres. But I’ve been…

June Wrap Up

Delayed wrap up as usual for me but that is August gone! This year is really starting to move on by isn’t it? August was a busy, slightly stressy but overall good month for me. My second vaccine did in fact go ahead this time though so that’s the best news I’ve had all year…

Review: Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton

****Trigger warnings for death of a parent, mentions of rape and sexual abuse, child abandonment, cannibalism (dragons eating dragons), estrangement and death of an infant**** So over this year, I’ve been taking note of my reading tastes and particular trends I go through. I’m very much a mood reader at heart but I do know…

Review: The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett

So I’ve finally started the Tiffany Aching books and my heart isn’t ready. Welcome back to the Discworld project friends!

Review: The House in the Cerulean Sea by T.J Klune

***Trigger warnings: Mentions of child abuse, child neglect, bullying and anxiety. More details on rep detailed here *** SFF as a whole doesn’t have many stories that I myself would call uplifting. Of course they are there to be sought out! Becky Chambers’s Wayfarers series is often referred to as “hope punk’ for the optimistic…

Weekly Pull List: August 18th

Another week, and more comics. This week I took some time off work which was great but I had to have my second vaccine dose rescheduled due to a supply issue so that was a bit of a bummer. I did though get some very cool comics! The start of two series I’ve been anticipating,…

Review: I Am Not Starfire by Mariko Tamaki and Yoshi Yoshitani

For all my talk about comics, weekly pull lists and retweets about new, upcoming series, it’s actually been a minute since I reviewed and comics or graphic novels here on the blog! So it’s no secret I’m a fan of DC comics. I am however always aware of where they can improve. Over the years,…

Weekly Pull List: August 11th

Welcome back everyone! Been a week of it, great for comics but a bit stressy for everything else. But comics are a huge balm to my soul so let’s celebrate that. This was a big week for comics, for both my haul and releases. Batman ’89 launching, Batman Urban Legends #6 with the coming out…
