The Sunday Post #50 - 29th May 2016


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I am going to recap my week, ramble about books and give you an idea of what I have coming up plus anything else newsworthy!



Hello everyone, I hope you are all well!

Still tired and cranky this week but on the plus side it is a bank holiday weekend so YAY!!!

Been doing lots behind the scenes such as catching up with comments and tweaking tags and stuff like that.

Most of my time this week has been spent reading The Twelve and City of Mirrors by Justin Cronin, it is the best, the story is totally epic and I can't wait to see how it ends.

Have a good week!



Who knows, I am not great at planning!

A lie in!!!!!


My picks from this week in years gone by!!

2015 - I reviewed Forever Between by Ann Christy

REVIEW - Saga Volume Two by Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples


Title: Saga: Volume Two

Author: Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples

Publisher: Image

Release Date: 25th October 2012

Source: Own Copy

Winner of the 2013 Hugo award for Best Graphic Story! 

When two soldiers from opposite sides of a never-ending galactic war fall in love, they risk everything to bring a fragile new life into a dangerous old universe.

 From New York Times bestselling writer Brian K. Vaughan (Y: The Last Man, Ex Machina) and critically acclaimed artist Fiona Staples (Mystery Society, North 40), Saga is the sweeping tale of one young family fighting to find their place in the worlds. 

Fantasy and science fiction are wed like never before in this sexy, subversive drama for adults. This specially priced volume collects the first six issues of the smash-hit series The Onion A.V. Club calls "the emotional epic Hollywood wishes it could make." 

Voted one of the top graphic novels of the year by the NYT, IGN, the Examiner, and SF Weekly. Voted Best Comic of the year by MTV Geek and Best New Series by Paradox Comics. Voted a finalist in the GoodReads Best GN of 2012 contest. Named one of Time Magazine's top 10 graphic novels for 2013

Sexy, violent, sarcastic, funny, just some of the words which I have to describe the Saga series.

It is such a good looking read, I mean the main characters are all kinds of gorgeous, there is a story but some times I get distracted by how lovely it all looks.

Anyway I better say that volume 2 continues with our new parents Alana and Marko on their journey across the universe with baby Hazel, trying to avoid the bad guys and in volume 2 everyone is trying to get to the author of a book that Alana was reading before she decided to run away with Marko. Confused, it makes perfect sense really - though maybe read my review of book one too!

The bad guys are not all bad but some are a little freaky, I mean you have Prince Robot IV (human body, TV head), The Stalk (80% eight legged freak, 20% sexy woman) and plenty of other crazy looking maniacs pop up too.  

Marko's ex-girlfriend appears too, teaming up with bounty hunter The Will and his best sidekick ever Lying Cat as they hunt down our star crossed lovers.

It is such a wonderful ride, Saga, full of bloody beauty, it literally is a graphic novel, very graphic so if you are squeamish it is not for you but if you are strong of stomach and full of need for a freaking great sci-fi ride then hop on to this series.

BIZARRE BOOKS #31 - Soviet Bus Stops by Christopher Herwig


Whilst looking through the hundreds of thousands of books on Amazon I discovered hidden gems, books that maybe have been overshadowed and have not had the credit they deserve.

They may be a bizarre, they may be funny or even unintentionally funny, they may be wonderfully cute or they may just be a total WTF!!! book.

This weekly post is a tribute to these wonderful gems and to be honest some of them are worth looking at for their reviews alone!


Comrades, no longer shall rain pour upon your heads, Mother Russia has created some extraordinary shelters to keep you warm and dry!

Like architecture? Like bus stops?  Then this is for you!

The Sunday Post #49 - 22nd May 2016


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by the lovely Kimba at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.

I am going to recap my week, ramble about books and give you an idea of what I have coming up plus anything else newsworthy!



Hello everyone, I hope you are all well!

I am tired and therefore cranky like the divine Miss Knope.

I blame the weather, it is hot one minute and cold the next, it really is like that Katy Perry song.

Needless to say my output this week by association has been lacking but I did stay awake long enough to write my awesome interview with myself about Welcome to Night Vale.

Another thing I have been doing whilst battling to stay awake is reading Justin Cronin's The Twelve before I get wired in to the last book, this series is crazy good, check it out.

In real actual life I have spent this weekend traipsing round town looking for random scarecrows, it is the scarecrow festival in town and there are so many great ones scattered about the town including this adorable one below.



Also my thoughts are with the families of all of those lost on EgyptAir flight MS804 which was lost on Thursday.

I'm off to bed have a good week everyone.






TO BE HONEST, I DON'T KNOW!
HOPEFULLY LOTS OF REVIEW!


Do I need to say anymore!?
