A Wrap-Up of the Books I Read in March 2021

The Other Mother by Matthew Dicks I requested this book on Netgalley and I’m so glad I did! Even though the title brings Gaiman’s Coraline to mind, this book isn’t horror. The protagonist has Capgras Syndrome and thinks his mother has been replaced by an imposter. First of all, a very unique premise and one that…

A Wrap-Up of Reading I Did in January 2021

Live Girls by Ray Garton Live Girls is a short and fast-paced vampire adventure of a book. Don’t reach for it if you like your horror to have deep characterization or be character-driven. Because during most of the book, all the protagonist does is whine, get his blood sucked out, and use one of his female…

September 2019 — A Wrap-Up

Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood and the Story of a Return by Marjane Satrapi I would have bought all the propaganda against the revolution. I really would have. Except for these two things. One, the author didn’t wasn’t heroic or patriotic, she came across as a petulant child. And what’s more, she showed no…

October 2019 — A Belated Wrap-Up

Iron and Magic by Ilona Andrews Find my review here. To Be a Machine : Adventures Among Cyborgs, Utopians, Hackers, and the Futurists Solving the Modest Problem of Death by Mark O’Connell An interesting book and yet I felt as if the author didn’t believe in the importance of the subject themselves. There was also a…

Project Frankenstein Comes to an End with this Latest Review

The book might have been repetitive but it did leave me with some interesting ideas, such as: Sewing human parts together doesn’t rewrite their DNA, so any monster children will be built on normal human DNA. The context here was the theory that if Victor was clever enough to make a human being, he surely…

Glowing Fish & Bucketfuls of Spider Silk in Goat Milk, Frankenstein’s Cat by Emily Anthes Showcases Some of the Wonders of the Biotechnological World While also Raising Some Important Questions!

The penultimate installment in Project Frankenstein was a joy to read. It was relatively short and full of stuff that I find interesting. I am dividing this review into three parts: 1. Here is a Snippet from the book: 2. Then there were these Sciency Bits that I enjoyed ruminating upon: Cloning other adult mammals…

Book Booty Plundered in April 2017

I shopped in two batches this month: Liberty Book Bazaar This is the haul I ended bringing home from the bazaar: While I don’t mind searching for the books in the piles that are dumped on tables in Liberty, I do mind that the collection gets worse and worse every month. I had to do…

March 2017 — Wrap-Up

  Old Faves in New Flavors The Hobbit Graphic Novel   The novel stayed true to the book. However, I wasn’t too impressed with the artwork. It could have been more attractive. Given that I’ve just finished reading Monstress, it is no surprise that everything else looks almost dull in comparison!       Words […]
