Thor, Vol. 1 !!!
Thor, Vol. 1 - Coipel Olivier,J. Michael Straczynski

In the movies, Thor is one of my favorite people. So when I saw this volume on Prime Reading. I HAD TO HAVE IT.

 

I loved this way more than I expected. Seriously, it was so good. I loved the stories, every one of them, I just love the characters. I wanted some Sif. I LOVE SIF. But even though she wasn't around, she got mentioned lots and that gave me all the feels. Ooops.

Some Graphic Novels
Wonder Woman Vol. 2: Year One (Rebirth) - Greg Rucka
The Unworthy Thor Vol. 1 - Olivier Coipe... The Unworthy Thor Vol. 1 - Olivier Coipel (illustrator) Jason Aaron (author)
Moonshine Volume 1 - Brian Azzarello Moonshine Volume 1 - Brian Azzarello

Which won't scan dammit.

 

Wonder Woman Year one which I really enjoyed. A great origin story with only occasional weird angles that look like the artist is trying to upskirt or stare down the boobs

 

Then I read Unworthy Thor, he's just being an angsty teen. Seriously, he needs to adult up.

 

Then I read Moonshine Vol 1, not my kind of art style and I have no urge to read more.

 

Entertaining few reads, they go so quickly. I read the Wonder Woman twice.  I do want to read more in this series

Review of Blowback by Brad Thor
Blowback - Brad Thor

Another solid entry in the Scott Harvath series.  The action in this series is decent, but I feel like the books lack some depth that other series like the Gabriel Allon series has.  With that said, this is a good escapist read and I always enjoy turning pages.

"The Last Patriot", by Brad Thor
The Last Patriot - Brad Thor

Book # 7, in the Scot Harvath series

Although this thriller is part of a series and I prefer reading the books in sequence I had no trouble picking this one at this stage. I was fast taken in by this exiting story and enjoyed Scot Harvath attempts to uncover a revelation that could damage the standing of radical Islam. This book was on the New York bestseller while being banned in Saudi Arabia when it came out (no wonder).

Being my first attempt reading this author was a good experience although having said this, “The Last Patriot” is very formulaic. . I had to set aside that the plot was pure fantasy and not be offended by its topic. Throughout the book we have long anti-Islamic diatribes that may be too much and again we have Homeland Security operatives working under the radar for the president, nothing new there. Many authors have hashed this over and over, it is time to let go. 

“The Last Patriot” mixes a certain amount of truth with creative and artistic fiction. The plot is wrapped around the idea that the prophet Mohammed shared a final revelation with some of his closest friends, who then murdered him to keep him quiet and what he said a secret. It all started when the president read the White House diary of Thomas Jefferson sending Harvath on a journey looking for clues to the Jefferson discovery. 

This thriller is a buffet of everything we want in a good thriller: suspense, action, well-written, fun, a high-adrenaline escapist and a cinematic page-turner hard to put down. This is pure entertainment.

Sisters sent to Sweden to escape WWII...
A Faraway Island - Annika Thor,Linda Schenck

 

 

During World War II, many Jewish children were sent to other countries and placed with families to keep them safe. Stephie and Nellie were two of those children. They end up on a small island and with two different families. At first glance, Nellie is in the warm, loving family and Stephie ends up with a woman who doesn't seem to even like her. Stephie is holding on to the idea that their parents will join them and they will all go to America. 

 

This is a great story about two girls adjusting to their new life and dealing with bullying and prejudice. I felt so bad for Stephie. She is trying so hard, but she misses her old life and her parents so much. Her parents sent her and her sister away to save them from the Germans and their hatred. But, even in Sweden, they can't avoid it completely.

 

When Stephie finally reveals her pain to her foster mother (Aunt Marta), she finds that Aunt Marta is dealing with her own pain. They both realize they aren't alone and don't have to deal with everything on their own.

 

Recommended to:

Middle school ages, especially girls. Even though it's historical fiction, the problems the girls deal with are easily relatable. The book doesn't deal with the horrors of the concentration camps, but the way the war affects Stephie, Nellie, and their family.
