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…

Weekly Pull List: August 25th

Welcome back to the blog besties! This has been….a week, to say the least. I’m still currently in a bit of a brain melty state from it but I am doing okay. Thank you to those of you who were being saints on Twitter. Surprising noone at all, I’ve mostly been seeking refuge in comics…

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.

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

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…

Weekly Pull List: August 4th

New week, new comics! Happy weekend everyone, hope things are good wherever you are. Since it’s comic book themed, I saw The Suicide Squad on Thursday and it was excellent.
