The Sirens of Gotham & What’s Next for Harley

Gotham City Sirens

Gotham City Sirens

Possibly controversial opinion…

Between DC and Marvel I think DC has the better characters. I mean yeah the cinematic universe Marvel is better although DC has some good animated stuff and DC definitely has the better villains and anti-heroes in my humble opinion of course.

Magic Libraries & Living Books: Sorcery of Thorns

sorcery of thorns

Sorcery of Thorns

By: Margaret Rogerson

Elizabeth has grown up as a child of the library. A world filled with librarians and living books. The books sing, the cry, they live, they feel pain and are various degrees of dangerous.

She’s happier there than anywhere. She dreams of being Warden one day and as such one rule she must live by- stay away from magic.

Geek Girls Don’t Cry they Survive

Geek Girls Don't Cry

Geek Girls Don’t Cry

By: Andrea Towers

I actually picked Geek Girls up awhile back when all the Dany-related GOT furor was going on. It ticks a lot of my boxes- female characters, mental health representation in culture and how both are perceived.

Geek Girls looks at why we relate so strongly to these characters as well.

I Have Some Reservations on this One (Spoilers)

Sawkill Girls

By: Claire Legrand

I’ve been on a scare me kick recently and want things along the lines of Stranger Things plus I’ve wanted to read a Claire Legrand for ages (or at least since last year) so I finally picked up Sawkill Girls.

Monsters and girl power. What more could a girl want?

Magic Crows & the Same old Characters

The Storm Crow

By: Kalyn Josephson

The Storm Crow is due to be published July 9th but I received a copy in December’s Fairy Loot. (Six months is about right for me actually reading arcs!)

It’s about a land powered by magical crows that people can fly and what happens to that land when the crows are destroyed and war is threatened.

Return to Discworld: Thoughts on 7,8 & 9

Pyramids

Pyramids

By: Terry Pratchett

I took a little break from my Discworld reading travels at the beginning of the year. Maybe it was fatigue but Good Omens put me in the mood to jump back in. In the future I probably won’t follow the one a month schedule that I had been doing.

Discworld is great fun but it’s probably best when you’re feeling in the mood for the crazy…

lady and the tramp

I’ve wanted to participate in Calendar Girls for a while now. It’s a monthly event run by Katie at Never Not Reading and Adrienne at Darque Dreamer Reads in which you post your favorite choice for the specific topic.

My problem is that I am so bad at picking just one anything when it comes to books! But I  narrowed it down for a Favorite Book OTP. Though I’m totally giving runners-up 🙂

Halfway through 2019: A Little Look Backward & Forward

tenant and sheen in good omens

We made it to the half way point! Cheers to us!

Thinking back over all the entertainment books, television and films over the last couple of months all I can do is hope that there are some nice surprises to come. I mean don’t get me wrong there’s been some good stuff even some gems but nothing that really surprised me.

But there are definitely some great options ahead. Especially in books!

The Devil & Roan Eddington

Teeth in the Mist

Teeth in the Mist

By: Dawn Kurtagich

I read ‘inspired by the legend of Faust’ and was like sign me up!

I enjoyed both Kurtagich’s previous books The Dead House & And the Trees Crept In so when I saw this one and read witches and deals with the devils along with a suitably creepy cover I jumped at buying and for once it was an immediate read for me.

This Hot Dog is a Brat

Hot Dog Girl

By: Jennifer Dugan

A couple of weeks ago when I did my summer reading recommendations I noted I was reading and enjoying Hot Dog Girl- which boy I should have just kept my mouth shut.

I should probably know better than to judge solely on tag lines and covers especially concerning hot dogs one of my true food enemies but boy it all came down to how much Eloise sucked and since she was the main character that turned into a problem.
