A Wrap-Up of the Netgalley Books I Read in May-June 2021

It Came From Miskatonic University: Weirdly Fantastical Tales of Campus Life by Various Authors I requested this book on Netgalley and I’m so glad I did! I lucked out when I found not one but two great anthologies on Netgalley. This one–as the name indicates–runs with a Lovecraftian theme. Different stories in it describe different…

February 2019 — A Wrap-Up

So, the series came to an end. I was sorry to say goodbye to the idiots — by which I mean Percy and Grover because Annabeth is too smart. But I am also glad that it ended on the right note. The source of all the trouble on Earth and the reason why the Titans…

December 2017 — A Wrap-Up!

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.

Here is a Snippet from the book: 2. Then there were these Sciency Bits that I enjoyed ruminating upon: Cloning other adult mammals…

August 2017 — A Wrap-Up for the Month of Graphic Novels & Comics

The previous month was all about graphic novels and comics. Here is what I read in August and what I thought about it: Monster of Frankenstein Vol. 1 As part of Project Frankenstein, this volume failed to make an impression. I was sad to see that all the stories missed the most essential characteristic present…

As fun as only Douglas Adams books can be. Although, it might also be due to my technique that I apply when reading books by DA. I space them out, which keeps the jokes and randomness from being repetitive and not-random! I won this in a giveaway. Read my review here. Okay, so this was…
