Book Review – Until Friday Night

Until Friday Night (The Field Party, #1)Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Forgive me, but I don’t really care about either of you, Maggie and West.

I get it, you’re going through tough times, but what, I ask, what does your attractiveness have to do with it?
Why is Maggie such a looker? Does her suffering become more poignant and her bravery more heart-rending because her milkshake brings all the boys to her yard?

Book Review – The Dark Days Pact

The Dark Days Pact (Lady Helen, #2)The Dark Days Pact by Alison Goodman

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

London, 1812

To Lady Helen,

My dearest friend, I have been following your adventures with anticipation for quite some time now. When you told me of a secret society that vanquished demons hiding among the populace, no one was more thrilled than me that you were to be a part of it. I lived vicariously through your missives for a while, and I was proud to call you a friend.

Then, of course, we could not communicate for a few months, and I must confess, some of the details of your trials slipped my mind. I hope you will not judge me too harshly when I say that I had difficulty recalling names and events. When you spoke of losing the Colligat, I had to sift through my old letters to bring it back to mind.

That said, since I will be judging you quite harshly from now, perhaps you would be fully justified in berating my poor memory. Continue reading

Book Review – A Promise of Fire

A Promise of Fire (Kingmaker Chronicles #1)A Promise of Fire by Amanda Bouchet

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Everyone, welcome to this session of “How Many Tropes Can We Fit Into One Book?”

You will notice that your usual host has been rendered speechless by the absurd level of trope stuffing in this book, so I’ve taken over for today.

Now, for all of you that wanted a copy of Kate Daniels without the badass Kate and the hotness of Curran, but with some teenage drama thrown in, you’ve come to the right place.

Shallow Reader Post – Faces of Death

13191639

So I missed a post last week because I was busy, but on the bright side, I got to watch Doctor Strange. The scales have been balanced, if you don’t think too hard about it.

Rambling aside, I read a Batman Detective Comic a while ago and honestly could not tell what was detective about it. Excerpt here:

There are two kinds of people in the world: the ones who believe Batman is the real personality and the ones that believe Batman is the persona.

Ok, the latter camp is something I made up, but it was a cool way to open the review.

Anyway, I belong to the third faction (population: 1) that believes that neither Batman nor Bruce Wayne is the real person, but something in between, a mixed personality that we never get to see.

Read the review here while I fan-girl over the latest Wonder Woman trailer ๐Ÿ˜‰

Shallow Reader Post – Sunstone

27264326

Guys, I made a discovery…It’s called digital comics. And here’s a review of one of the first ones I read – Sunstone, a breakout graphic novel that’s essentially a romance between main characters Ally and Lisa.

For some reason, I’ve decided this is the cat gif review.(shrugs)

Sunstone deals with what some people might call uncomfortable topics, but which will surprise no one who is acquainted with:
(a) fanfiction
(b) M/M romances
(c) anime fan-girls

I happen to be one of those people.

See the rest of the review here and hope that I manage to get through this year of uni without being distracted by all the shiny books.
