The Wicked + the Divine Vol. 7 and Vol. 8

Double bill special feature (or: it gets really hard to have something different to say about graphic novels after the first few volumes*). And there won’t be much to say. Y’all know I like WicDiv. If you weren’t going to … Continue reading

The Wolf in the Whale – Jordanna Max Brodsky

This one was disappointing. So it was a book club book, and one I’d not even read before, which is already a nice bonus. It follows the story of an Inuit, Omat, coming into contact with Vikings in Canada, and … Continue reading

The Calculating Stars – Mary Robinette Kowal

Penultimate Nebula! So close! The finish line nears! And it’s another meh one… great. This one was frustrating – I loved the idea behind it, and was really glad to read a novel about it… I just was completely underwhelmed … Continue reading

Unquiet Women – Max Adams
