Strong Female Protagonist Book One - Molly Ostertag,Brennan Lee Mulligan
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

Honestly, I sought this book out because the artwork was done byMolly Ostertag and I am currently slightly obsessed with her work.

Overall, I thought the book was good. There were times when it was a bit confusing, but I liked the concept. 

The artwork in the beginning was a bit overwhelming for me. It starts out with a lot of words in the pictures (signs, song lyrics, store names, logos, billboards, headlines). It was just a bit too much for me. I liked the puns and such, but it was exhausting reading all of those words that didn't actually further the story. This mostly gets phased out after the first two chapters, which made the rest of the book more enjoyable for me. Other than that the artwork was great. 

I did really like Alison's character and how much she matures throughout the book. It was interesting seeing her relationships to various people and how those relationships changed as well. I especially liked the Cleaver plot line. 

Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and will probably read the next book at some point.

4 Out Of 5 STARS for Do Not Disturb by A.R. Torre
Do Not Disturb (A Deanna Madden Novel Book 2) - A.R. Torre

Deanna Madden Series #2

 

 

๏ ๏ ๏ Highlights ๏ ๏ ๏

 

Psychological Thriller

Romantic Suspense

Erotic Cyber Sex

Darkish

Homicidal Tendencies

 

 

With Audio Performed by Jorjeana Marie

 

๏ ๏ ๏ My Thoughts ๏ ๏ ๏

 

I didn't like this quite as much as the first book but it was still a solid follow-up to The Girl in 6E. Do Not Disturb has stepped up the romance a bit, between Deanna and the UPS guy, Jeremy. Also, we get to know the elusive hacker, Mike, somewhat. There is a new dilemma with a customer of Deanna's who just got out of jail for Rape and is hell-bent on meeting up her, despite telling him repeatedly that she doesn't do that sort of thing. Things escalate quickly, and she has to deal with the consequences of that. All of this is going on while Deanna tries to deal with her need to kill, plus her newfound need to escape her apartment.

 

The ending was definitely missing something for me, things tied up a little too quickly and I still wish this had a male narrator for the male parts of the book...but honestly, Jorjeana Marie does do a stellar job as the voice of Deanna Madden.

Sea Of Stars
Sea of Stars (The Kricket Series Book 2) - Amy A. Bartol

It's been a while since I read the first book in the series, so some of the details were a bit blurry when I started Sea of Stars. Kricket, the main character with the most *uhm* special name and also her very special character of course, has found her way up in the stars between two (or possibly more) warring alien species/gangs. (I say alien because that is what they say in the book, and they make tiny, stupid human jokes. However, the physical appearance of said aliens is like humans, but ultimately better, obviously).

Where in the first book I was mainly annoyed by A) annoying Kricket and B) the human-like, human-feeling aliens, this time around there was little time for any of that as the story is immediately in full swing. Jumping around from one fight to the next while all that she wants to do is bunk down with her (new?) (insta?) love interest (I seriously can't remember him from the first book, if he was in there). Near the end, the typical end of the second book in a series great revelation is revealed, which will carry the story to the concluding book, which I will probably read sometime soon.

Now, this was actually kind of a nice read, all things considered. It was an easy read, and the things that bothered my in the first book, didn't bother me so much any more. While I had the feeling not a lot happened in the book, it was exciting enough for me to keep reading. It was an easy and quick read and sometimes these are just what you need.

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Book Learnin'
Book Learnin' - John McNamee

Like most comics collections I read, I was not really familiar with Pie Comics yet. The title and the cover however suggested that it had to do with books, so I just had to read it.

It was not what I expected. I'm not sure what I did expect, but it was more than I got. Sure, some of the comics were quite funny, but many were mwah and they were not about books unfortunately. While it wasn't for me, I'm sure fans of the comic will appreciate it.

Reading progress update: I've read 20%.
Mortal Engines - Philip Reeve

Sometimes it's refreshing to step into a well-written YA science fiction book. This one borders on a fairytale level of improbability but is managing to carry it. It's giving me young people to cheer for and offering me bad baddies and people who are baddies some of the time. Excellent stuff.
