It Rocks: Dragon Slayer – Devin Kraft

It takes a man to kill a dragon. What does it take to kill the Dragon Slayer?   I met Devin at a local event late last year and was immediately drawn to his art. After buying a couple of pieces (Sherlock and Doctor Who, who could say no?) I also picked up a limited edition […]

Quick View – Bridget Jones Mad About the Boy – Helen Fielding

I absolutely LOVE Bridget Jones. From books, to movies, to little How To’s that I am sure no one else knows exist I have read them all again and again. She is my favorite modern-day heroine. A bit bumbly but well-meaning. A bit petulant, but smart when she figures out what she wants. I have […]

Quick View: Ready Player One

When I picked up Ready Player One on audible last year (Wil Wheaton narrates!) I had no idea what I was getting myself into. Since initially reading it I have recommended it to not only family and friends, but strangers in bars who fit the type of reader who can get down with a book […]

YES: I love the doctor’s rag-tag team on this train. YES: Well, I seriously did not expect that twist. So some big guy is behind this and […]

Quick View: Saga by Brian K. Vaughan (Writer), Fiona Staples (Illustrator)

When two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war fall in love, they risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe. The issue I have with reviews is that I am officially terrible at them. I never pinpoint literary merit and everything is about the feels. So if […]

Quick View: How to be a Woman

This turned out to be a great read. Caitlin Moran is slightly brilliant in a scary, I would totally forget to say words if I met her, kind of way. How to Be a Woman was everything I never knew I needed and I loved it tremendously. I have never highlighted so many passages in […]

Namesake, by Isabelle Melançon (co-creator) and Megan Lavey-Heaton (co-creator), is the story of Emma Crewe, a young woman who discovers she can visit literary worlds where the words on the page are real and so are the high stakes.
