Book reviews for science fiction, fantasy and graphic novels are the core of this blog. Genres will vary by what I’m reading, of course, but I rotate as much as possible. So if you read a fantasy review last week, you’re much more likely to get a scifi, YA, or graphic novel review this time around. I read faster than I review, and in more genres than covered here, so if you want everything, follow me on Goodreads.
Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book blogging meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. The categories are announced ahead of time, and a vast number of bloggers participate every week. I won’t participate every week, but only when the topic intrigues me. I also keep my responses tied as closely to the topics of this blog as possible.
The most enticing draw of a graphic novel is often the art, so I’ve created a special feature to showcase favorite panels. I avoid graphics which contain plot spoilers, use adult language, or require prior knowledge of the comic in question. Besides providing a visual element for this blog, my hope is that the art and colors will draw readers in a different way than a standard written review. This feature has been incorporated into graphic novel reviews, so all reviews for manga or graphic novels now include panel art.
Special feature posts on reading, blogging, or library life. Personal posts will be rare and sporadic, as topics occur to me.
Book quotes, often of something I’ve previously reviewed here or on Goodreads. Quotes are posted here without visuals, but you can find a striking graphic version of them on my Pinterest quote board. This feature has been discontinued for the time being.
