Manga Review: Black Clover V 11 by Yuki Tabata @shonenjump @vizmedia

It’s been so long since I read a volume of Black Clover that I: a – forgot what was going on, and b – forgot how much fun this series is. And that is the problem with reading a series that is still being published. You catch up with it, carry on with life, and before you know it, you’ve fallen behind and it’s fallen off of your radar. I’m going to try to not let that happen again with this one.

You will want to read this book before Kate 10. I read that somewhere.

Hey! Its been a while, between being a human cafeteria for a newborn, and all the dirty diapers, its really hard to make time to read, let alone write a review. The little guy doesn’t like to sleep for more than 30 minutes during the day.

Review: Song of Blood & Stone by L Penelope


May Contain Spoilers

This has been getting a lot of buzz, and it’s a fantasy, so my interest was piqued. I went into this without really knowing what it was about, and I find that that usually works best for me. I like to discover a book’s plot by working my way through the pages, instead of having it handed to me in a cover blurb. This was an engrossing book that didn’t always work for me, but I enjoyed it enough to want to read more of the author’s works.

Review: Grey Sister by Mark Lawrence


May Contain Spoilers

I was really excited to get my hands on Grey Sister, and when I finally had an opportunity to sit down and read it, I had mixed results. Again. I love this story when Nona is not at the Convent of Sweet Mercy. Thankfully, a spiteful novice sends Nona packing about 40% of the way through. Then Nona has to rely on her courage, wits, and abilities to keep herself alive in an exceedingly dangerous world. With the ice ever creeping into the Corridor, the tensions between the people of Abeth are at a fever pitch. Competition over land is fierce and deadly. Nona and the Sisters of Mercy are caught up in a plot to shake up the power base in the Empire, and any wrong move can mean their death.

Audio Review: Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi, Read by Bahni Turpin


May Contain Spoilers

Oh wow, was this a great book.  It’s been on my radar for a while, so when I was offered an audio copy for review, I was over the moon. I’m trying to up my audio reading game, and BOOM, this showed up. It’s a great story, told by a talented reader, and I found myself listening to it while puttering around the house over the weekend, so I puttered a lot more than usual. It was very timely, as I fell on the ice and twisted my knee, so I had a great excuse to do nothing but stay home and listen to an entertaining story, with a stunningly breathtaking setting.
