Unravel the Dusk (The Blood of Stars #2) – Elizabeth Lim [Books]

Genre: Fantasy – Romance – Young AdultPublisher: Random House I thought this series was a trilogy, but it’s not, it’s a duology, which means this book is the conclusion to the story which started in Spin the Dawn.

Spider-Man/Deadpool, Volume 2: Side-Pieces [Books]

Genre: Graphic Novel – Superheroes Publisher: Marvel Rating: Volume 1 Review Side Pieces feels very, very different to Spider-Man/Deadpool Volume 1. Whereas 1 had an over-arching story, the two heroes bouncing off each other and forming a deeper friendship, Side Pieces, like the name, is more a collection of random stories featuring the two heroes, disconnected from oneContinue reading “Spider-Man/Deadpool, Volume 2: Side-Pieces [Books]”

When Punk Rocked – Andy Francis [Books]

Genre: Non-Fiction – History – Reference Publisher: Wymer Publishing Rating:  This book gets 5 Stars because it does exactly what it needs to, and presents information in a fun but informative way and what else could you really ask for from a reference book?
