Top Ten Tuesday – Favorite Non-Fantasy Books

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme by That Artsy Reader Girl.This feature gives a weekly Top Ten list. We all love lists, right? I am modifying this weeks theme a bit because it asked for top 10 books of your favorite genre, but since so much of my blog is devoted to Fantasy, I decided to mix it up and list...

Backlist Burndown Review: Rat Queens

I’ve not read all that many graphic novels, and Rat Queens is quite a departure from the ones I have read. The title of this volume is “Sass and Sorcery” and quite frankly, that’s very fitting, particularly the sass. Rat Queens is a group of mercenaries, made up of irreverent, sarcastic women who enjoy indulging in their share of drink,...

Comic Review: Monstress by Marjorie M. Liu and Sana Takeda

Monstress is absolutely stunning comic with a dark story and artwork that is simply gorgeous. I really can’t stress enough how much I loved all the imagery. I will readily admit to being a complete novice when it comes to comics, having read pretty much just Saga and Locke and Key, but even as a novice I feel secure in saying...

Stacking the Shelves

Stacking the Shelves is a weekly feature all about sharing your good luck in book acquisitions! So here’s what came my way since my last post! It’s been another couple of great weeks for book additions! I don’t even know where to start! Received for Review                     I admit, I don’t read...

Graphic Novel Review: Saga Volume 4

Well, I can say this is the first book I’ve read (graphic novel or other) that shows the struggles of a stay at home dad. Marko is caring for toddler Hazel, while Alana works as an actress. I still find it interesting how this series manages to include real world problems and conflicts while being quite a fantastical story of...

Saga #3 by Brian K. Vaughan (Writer), Fiona Staples (Artist)

This is another fun volume in the Saga series.  I felt like it was maybe a little slower than the other two, but not in a bad way. They start with a quest to find romance novelist D. Oswald Heist. Why? Because evidently his books carry a much deeper meaning for careful readers. One that leads them to believe that the...

Saga #2 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

There are some things that just can’t be unseen. And this graphic novel definitely contains some pages that trigger that. Some of us delight at the unexpected, cringe worthy images that make you shiver and squirm in your seat. Make a face between laughing and like you just sucked on a lemon as you double check. Yeah, that image is what...

Saga #1 by Brian K. Vaughan (Writer), Fiona Staples (Artist)

A little background about me and graphic novels: After reading Joe Hill’s books and absolutely loving them, several people recommended I read Locke & Key. I had never read a graphic novel prior to that (at least not for myself, I have a couple I have read to my kids), so I was hesitant. Anyway, I decided to give it...
