Review

This was such a cute adventure and great story about Carol needing to let go of control. I love Carol meeting Nadia’s G.I.R.L.S. staff. It makes me want to read more of the The Unstoppable Wasp! The interaction between these two was also just generally hilarious. I found myself laughing through most of the comic which is always good. I’m hoping to read more things like this.

Totally 5/5

Weekly Review

It’s been a pretty good week. I’m healing and I go back to the doctor’s first of next week to see how I’m doing. Hopefully things will move along at a timely pace. I can tell I SHOULD NOT be on my foot yet but I’m hoping I can put some pressure on it soon so I can be on crutches.

I finished a few books this week just graphic novels

I’m also playing Skyrim, but I recently had to start over to get a few characters and things that I wanted. I’m playing as a female Imperial. I’m going to be a Mage type sticking with my normal standard of gameplay. If you have any tips feel free to drop them in the comments, I can always use the help.

November TBR

A lot of what I read depends on what’s avaible at the various libraries I’m a part of, but here is a list of a few things I’d love to read.

The Art of Saving the World

The Art of Saving the World by [Corinne Duyvis]

I’ve read Duyvis’ books before, particularly On the Edge of Gone, and really enjoyed them. In this one Hazel Stanczak is connected to an interdimensional rift. It tore open when she was born, near her family’s home, of course that sort of thing doesn’t go unnoticed by the government so for the past sixteen years they have set up shop on Hazel’s front lawn.

Because everyone soon learned if Hazel strayed to far from the rift it would become volatile and start flinging things from other dimensions onto the lawn. Or you know swallow up the whole town. The rift was never terribly predictable. So Hazel has stayed near home for the past sixteen years and had government agents make sure she stays that way.

But on her sixteen birthday things including the rift start to spin completly out of control. She find a suprise: a second Hazel, then another, and another. All from different dimensions She also find out the government agency she trusted has been keeping secrets. For the first time ever Hazel has to step into the world learn about her connection to the rift, and according to her guide close the rift and save the world.

But even with four Hazels is she really capable of saving the world?

Ghost Squad

Ghost Squad by [Claribel A. Ortega]

So I recieved my copy of Ghost Squad after going to a talk with the wonderful Claribel A. Ortega. I’ve been wanting to read this book for awhile but none of my libraries have gotten it so I’m super thankful for the giveaway. Thanks again Claribel Ortega and Arapahoe Libraries.

About the book, for Lucely Luna, ghosts are more than just the family business.

However when she and her best friend Syd cast a spell that accidentelly awakens malicious spirits that start wrecking havoc throughout St. Augustine. They must join forces with Syd’s witch grandmother Babette and her fat cat, Chunk. They have to fight the haunting head on and reverse the curse to save the town and Lucely’s firefly spirits before it’s too late.

Ortega talked about how the influence of 80-90’s scary movies and books influced them, as well as their own Dominican heritage.

The Avant-Guards #1

It’s no secret I’m a fan of Boom Studios, Lumberjanes is arguably my favorite comic, neigh one of my favorite pieces of fiction in existence. So I’m not surprised to say I think I’ve found another good one with the Avant-Guards.

The Avant-Guards #1

The Avant-Guards #1 by [Carly Usdin, Noah Hayes]

Summary

Transferring into the Georgia O’Keeffe College of Arts and Subtle Dramatics, a historically all-female school Charlie Bravo is done with being there before she even arrives but after going to a activities fair out of boredom she catches the interest of Liv.

Liv is an aspiring actor and basketball enthusiast, and she thinks Charlie would be perfect for the school’s basketball team. Charlie is star basket ball player, but she’s done with teams.

If only Liv can get Charlie to give their fledgling basketball team one last shot and finally give the school the sports team it deserves, The Avant-Guards.

Review

Boom makes another place I’d like to visit. I love the contrast of Liv and Charlie’s attitudes, the quips and the friendship starting to form. I’m really looking forward to where things go in the next issue and maybe learning about some more of the other team members.

Also Liv is smart, she talks about getting sports money for an art school and gathering donors and networking, she’s clearly ahead of the game and I’m sure this will serve her well in further issues.
