Manga Monday [#3] Review: Vampire Academy and Twilight

January 7, 2013 Review 14

The Manga Mondays Meme is a awesome meme hosted by Alison Can Read!  So I am kind of cheating here, these aren’t exactly manga but I wanted a chance to talk about these! I’m new to the graphic novel thing, not manga, but making an illustrated version of a novel. Apparently they are becoming popular because I saw a graphic […]

Review: Cinder by Marissa Meyer

December 30, 2012 Review 15 ★★★½

Cinder is our protagonist, our Cinderella. As if being verbally abused and treated as a slave like the original wasn’t enough, Cinder is a cyborg-meaning parts of her are robotic. This was a little disturbing and I would have disliked it had I not realized how much humanity Cinder has in her. She wants to be human. Cinder works as […]

Review: Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

Review: Of Poseidon by Anna Banks

December 27, 2012 Review 19 ★★★★

OF POSEIDON gets many mixed reviews. Looking through them on Goodreads I found the majority being four/five stars or just one. I am on the four stars side, I enjoyed the novel’s strengths far more than I opposed its weaknesses. Yes, a character dies near the beginning of the novel. Was it necessary? Maybe not, but at least the main […]
