Too Many Curses by A. Lee Martinez
Too Many Curses - A. Lee Martinez

TITLE:  Too Many Curses

 

AUTHOR:  A. Lee Martinez

 

DESCRIPTION: 

"Margle the Horrendous takes special pride in never killing his enemies. Instead, the wizard transforms them into various accursed forms and locks them away in his castle. His halls are filled with his collection of fallen heroes and defeated villains.

It’s Nessy’s duty to tend this castle. It’s a lot of work, but she takes pride in housekeeping talents that keep the castle from collapsing into chaos. But when Margle suddenly dies, everything begins to unravel. Nessy finds herself surrounded by monsters, curses, a door that should never be opened, and one very deadly dark wizardess.

Nessy doesn’t have might or magic on her side; she’s just a kobold: short, furry, and sensible. It would be smarter to walk away, but taking care of the castle is Nessy’s job, and that’s just what she intends to do.

If only she could find time to polish the silver while beating back the forces of darkness.
"

Review of Pedro by Pedro Martinez
Pedro - Pedro Martinez,Michael Silverman

Pedro Martinez is easily my favorite pitcher of all time.  He was must watch any time he took the mound.  This was a fun look into his career and to hear his strong opinions on his teammates and coaches throughout his playing years.  I wish there was a bit more on individual games, and I wish there was a bit more about his personal life, but overall if you are a baseball fan (especially a Red Sox fan), this will be a very enjoyable read.

Home Life Around the World Anita Martinez Beijer
Home Life Around the World - Anita Martinez Beijer

Home Life Around the World is so much more then a book of pictures taken in rooms of peoples houses. Not only does the book show you rooms for personal homes but it also introduces you to those people and even tells you some of the reasons for the designs. The pictures are taken from around the world and the people are from different walks of life.

Some of the designs I fell in love with, some were over the top for me and some were too bland. There was at least one thing in just about every room I did like if not love. There was a bright red couch in one living room with colorful pillows in a stark white room. I just loved it.

A lot of people may think why would you want to read a book or look at the pictures of someones living room or bedroom or other room. I love art, and I look for it all over the place. Each of these peoples rooms are actually a work of art to me. They express themselves with objects more then mediums, and I really enjoyed it.

I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Relistening: 2 hours and 25 minutes in
Emperor Mollusk Versus the Sinister Brain - A. Lee Martinez,Scott Aiello

I don't seem to be interested in listening to anything new right now, so I'm relistening to this. Scott Aiello's narration is great, although it just occurred to me that his voice for Zala is a lot like the English dub voice for Naruto's Sasuke. I keep getting mental images of Sasuke arguing with a too-smart octopus who I'm pretty sure says the word "pudding" the same way as the guy who narrates "True Facts About the Octopus."

Short stories
Riverdale Vol. 1 - Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa,Alitha Martinez,Joe Eisma

Short stories that take place before and during the first season of Riverdale.   Mostly they focus on one character, although some are a couple or duo, and then they conclude with the first issue of the New Riverdale Archie by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples. 

 

Fun, but one star lost because the stories were too short and too one-dimensional for me to truly engage with this world or these characters.
