Sara by Garth Ennis & Steve Epting

Recently I went to my local comic shop (New Wave Comics in Skippack, PA) to pick up an absurd number of comics they'd been holding for me. Of course, as usual, I had a poke around the trade paperbacks that they have in as they often differ from the ones we carry at the store,… Continue reading Sara by Garth Ennis & Steve Epting

Historical Fiction Favorites

Historical fiction wound up being the genre that got me back into reading at the end of my self-isolation during this pandemic and I have a feeling it's what I'm going to want to be reading for most of the summer - to escape a different time in the past where things were, if not… Continue reading Historical Fiction Favorites

A YA Week at Home

This is actually a good thing, because it means that I've been working so hard that I haven't had time to really settle into a book. I mean, I'd rather be reading, but right now I'm grateful to be one… Continue reading A YA Week at Home

The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu

I almost posted another review today, but it's International Women's Day, so I knew I had to do a review of a book by one of my favorite female authors about one of my favorite women in history! Synopsis From the Jacket Flap:Born with a gift for music, Nannerl Mozart has just one wish: to… Continue reading The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu
