Weekly reading, vol. 10

I’ve been trying to get this post up for five days now and it’s still giving me problems. Bleh. But at least I’ve managed to get SOMETHING up this week! So my reading for this week didn’t start off that great. I thought a short story would cleanse my palate between books, so I tried The Sacrificial Knight by Kestrel Drake , a fantasy m/m romance with dragons! And knights! And, like, way too much Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 9

Happy Sunday! School’s back in session but I’m having a hard time getting back into “work” mode. Especially since I’ve been sick all last week, and all I want to do is sleep and read books. Bleh. Continuing onward from last week’s Beings in Love binge, I finished up Little Wolf by R. Cooper on Sunday. More werewolves, yay! This time the couple is a heroic sheriff and an on-the-run, sassy werewolf with self-confidence issues Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 8

Hello, happy Sunday! I’m sick or something and my throat hurts and I have no energy and it stinks. But I have a bunch of mini-reviews for the 11 books I read this week! Still heavy into m/m romances, too, btw. I remember seeing a few reviews of Little White Duck by Na Liu back when it first came out, so I snagged it when I spotted it on the shelf at one of my Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 7

Happy Sunday, everyone! I had a very good week of reading. First up, I read a freebie that’s been on my TBR since October 2015. Learning to Feel by N.R. Walker is a (Twilight!) fanfic-turned-pro story about an emotionally repressed doctor meeting an artist and falling in love! And it’s kind of…iffy. See, I like the idea, but I didn’t like the narrative style, and some of the word choices kept throwing me off.1 However, Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 6

I snagged a month’s free subscription to Marvel Unlimited back in December, though I haven’t been making as much use of it as I have before. So far I’ve read two trade-equivalents, Deadpool vol. 5: Wedding of Deadpool by Brian Posehn and various guest writers/artists , and Ms. Marvel vol. 2: Generation Why by G. Willow Wilson with art by Adrian Alphona and Jacob Wyatt . Deadpool’s wedding was a huge issue filled with unfortunately Read More …

Weekly reading, vol. 5

Happy New Year, everyone! My vacation is nearly at an end, which means I’ll be back to work tomorrow. Luckily, I still have a few weeks until library school starts up again. I’ll only be taking two classes this semester (as opposed to three like in the fall), so hopefully I’ll be able to keep up with blogging this time around. And reading, of course! Anywho, here’s what I’ve been reading this week. Some of Read More …

Very quick reviews: December 2015, part 3 (romances)

Happy New Year, everyone! Today’s set of reviews features lots of m/m holiday romances! [supsystic-gallery id=6 position=center] In the Raw – Nikka Michaels Two culinary students meet and, two years later, get together despite issues of class and wealth and homophobic, super-controlling parents. Featuring a lovely sister who gets shelved halfway through the book, despite her being the best character in the book! I have more dislikes about this book than I wanted, tbh. Mostly Read More …

Very quick reviews: December 2015, part 1 (picture books)

One of the nice things about working in an elementary school library (and in the children’s department at a public library) is that I have the opportunity to check out lots of nifty picture books. I tend to go for ones with quirky art and/or a quirky story– bonus points if it takes place in a library! Here’s some quick reviews of about half of the picture books I read in December.

Very quick reviews: November 2015, part 4 (yet more romances)

This is the last of the November batch reviews! Huzzah! As a sidenote, I wanted to let everyone know that Marvel Unlimited has a promo going for a free month’s subscription using the code FORCE. If you’ve been wanting to read series like Hawkeye, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, Deadpool, etc., this would be a really great way to get ahold of them for cheap!
