Mini Reviews! The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, The Graveyard Book, & Anne of Green Gables

Mini Reviews! The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, The Graveyard Book, & Anne of Green Gables

Posted December 24, 2019 in Reviews // 2 Comments

Time for another round of mini reviews!  The following three books are all books I’ve read before and have reviewed before on the blog, but they’re still good books and deserve a little time in the spotlight. These reviews are short and sweet, with a handful thoughts and impressions but nothing too deep. So, these are a little more spread out than the last time I did a mini review bundle.  Both The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and The Graveyard Book were actually read in October.  I’ve been putting the bits about the books I’m reading in this post as I read […]

5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth and Other Useful Guides by Matt Inman

5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth and Other Useful Guides by Matt Inman

  Reviewing comic books like 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth is tricky because it all comes down to sense of humor and personal preference.  Immediately from this title, I’m sure you all are thinking “she found a book about punching dolphins hilarious?  She’s a monster!”. … This book isn’t really about punching dolphins so much as it is full of observational humor and a lot of clickbait-sequel titles. I, yes, found it hilarious, as I often do with Matt Inman’s comics. My husband, on the other hand, was not amused when I kept handing […]

The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson

The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson

  So, this book is fun and quirky and has a lot of diversity and fun characters.  It’s even a bit memorable in its way, so I’d have to say that… generally?  I liked it! There are a lot of good talking points in The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden.  First of all, there is the voice it’s told in:  the voice has that dry, fun wit that I relate to a lot of British science fiction writers.  I really like that voice, because it catches me by surprise and makes me laugh with its subtlety and pointing out […]

Homerooms and Hall Passes by Tom O’Donnell

Homerooms and Hall Passes by Tom O’Donnell

This is definitely not the type of book I would normally pick up for myself.  Even as this ARC has been sneaking closer and closer to the top of my TBR, I’ve found myself dreading it.  It’s just so… solidly… not something I would have chosen, based on the cover and the description? But I gotta be honest, y’all.  Homerooms and Hall Passes was actually pretty entertaining! At no point did this book take itself seriously, and thank goodness for that because if this took itself seriously, it would have been intolerable.  There were a lot of chuckle moments.  Now, right off the […]

You’re Never Weird on the Internet by Felicia Day

You’re Never Weird on the Internet by Felicia Day

Posted September 5, 2019 in Reviews // 0 Comments

I think I can safely say that You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost) is my favorite memoir to date.  Felicia Day is very accessible at all times, and this feels more like reading someone’s personal journals than a celebrity memoir.  For example, her name drops? Almost zero. I think these days, most people who know Felicia have watched Supernatural.  Her character, Charlie Bradbury, is very popular on the show.  I will fully and happily admit that I’m a fan myself.  But I was aware of Felicia Day long before she appeared as Charlie.  I am familiar with her largely because she was […]
