Book Thoughts: The 100 Series

Diving into The 100 series by Kass Morgan was a weird adventure. I’ve watched the CW show for three years, so I’ve had plenty of time to form strong opinions about the characters and story progression, as well as what the writers are doing well and what they’re doing really poorly. I recently started writing about it for…

Book Goals: Go to the library!

Two months into 2017, my goal to #ReadWomen2017 is still going strong! In February, I’ve only read four books (one of which was a graphic novel) but all four were written by women and I took away something different from each. I had a lot of fun reading this month, which felt really good, and I…

Book goals: #ReadWomen2017

For the last two years, I’ve read a pretty pitiful number of books: 32 in 2015 and 30 in 2016. Yikes. According to my past GoodReads challenges, 2012 is the year to beat. That year (the year I graduated college, incidentally), I read 71 books! That’s more than what I’ve read in the last two…

Then, when it was over, I found myself in the kind…

Book Thoughts: The Paper Magician Trilogy

It’s probably a little dangerous, given how many books I own (in physical and electronic form) that I haven’t read,…

Book Thoughts: How to Be Alive

At the beginning of the month, after responding favorably to an email asking whether I’d like an advanced copy of Colin Beavan’s new book, I received a paperback of How to Be Alive: A Guide to the Kind of Happiness That Helps the World. Prior to receiving the aforementioned email, I had never heard of Beavan…

Comics you should be reading: ODY-C

Last year, Matt Fraction and Christian Ward launched a book that blew my mind from its first issue, four-page timeline fold-out. That book is ODY-C, and it’s a genderbroke Odyssey that plays with all kinds of norms and tropes to create a full-color explosion of badassery on every page. This book is so good that I’ve been…
