Wonder Woman: Warbringer Was a Pretty Good Read

As promised, my first book review of 2018 is on Wonder Woman: Warbringer. I confess, Wonder Woman was never my favourite superhero. A little part of me died every time I saw that skimpy little leotard costume, and an even bigger part of me died when I realised that she’s the most iconic lady superhero out […]

Character Study: Hermione Granger

Hermione Granger is the real star of the Harry Potter series. She's smart, kind, tenacious, and loyal. She's also the character who made me understand just what good representation can do.

Happy, happy 2018, everybody! It’s the first day of a new year, which makes it the perfect day to unveil my new blog category: Character Studies.

On My Shelf: I Believe in a Thing Called Love

Maurene Goo's I Believe in a Thing Called Love is basically cotton candy in book form. It's sweet, it's fluffy, and it's very, very pink.

I’m pretty sure I heard about I Believe in a Thing Called Love (Maurene Goo) through Goodreads, a site that I’m on but, like, don’t really know how to use. (Seriously, how does that website work? What am I supposed to do with it? How do I use it to make book friends? Please advise.) I […]

On My Shelf: Zodiac

These are the voyages of Rhoma “Rho” Grace, the protagonist of Zodiac, as she traverses her totally awesome Greek zodiac-based solar system trying to get somebody to take her warnings of impending doom seriously. What Zodiac is about: Rhoma “Rho” Grace is a Cancrian to the bone—or rather, to the heart. Intuitive, emotional, and loyal, Rho is devastated […]
