(REVIEW) Blackbird, Vol. 1 ~ Sam Humphries

Rating: 2 stars Well that sucked. The Art The art was good...sometimes. Usually, it was painfully awkward and had that certain quality so common in Western comics and graphic novels: what I call "rushed by a deft hand." The artist was good, undeniably so, but they were also very clearly rushed, or just didn't care [...]

(REVIEW) Finale ~ Stephanie Garber (Caraval #3)

Rating: 3 stars I honestly don't have a lot of thoughts on this, other than that it went on for too long and repeated plot points far too often. I enjoyed it as much as I've enjoyed all the previous books in this series, in that it was entirely forgettable but I had a decently [...]

(REVIEW) Nancy Drew: The Palace of Wisdom ~ Kelly Thompson (Nancy Drew #1)

Rating: 5 stars Time to be honest: this was the very first Nancy Drew anything I've ever read. Same for the Hardy Boys. I even had some of their books on my shelf growing up. I just didn't really care enough or thought they would be boring since they weren't about fairies or sharks (I [...]

(ARC REVIEW) Minus ~ Lisa Naffziger

Rating: 3 stars I received this eARC from Iron Circle Comics via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of this book in any way. Honestly, this wasn't as bad as the average review makes it seem. It's not very good, but that mostly comes down to awkward dialogue, [...]

(REVIEW) We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families ~ Philip Gourevitch

Rating: 5 stars All at once, as it seemed, something we could have only imagined was upon us—and we could still only imagine it. This is what fascinates me most in existence: the peculiar necessity of imagining what is, in fact, real. This was a very difficult book to read, and an even harder book [...]

(REVIEW) Cruel Beauty ~ Rosamund Hodge

Rating: 4 stars (Original rating: 5 stars) Buddy read this reread with Nana and sort of accidentally binged it again ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Honestly, my opinion remains almost entirely the same, except that I found this infinitely more redundant this time, hence the lower star rating. Like, it irked me an irrational amount every time "Hermetic" was said and [...]

(REVIEW) When I Arrived at the Castle ~ Emily Carroll

Rating: 2/5 stars I'm really disappointed. Emily Carroll is one of my favorite comic artists and horror authors, but this was just way too confusing. I usually don't mind twisty stuff, but I'm honestly not sure what this was even about. From start to finish, this relied solely on the self-indulgent aesthetic of ~spooky women~ [...]
