I have been a life-long Batman fan. Ever since the days of the animated series, I've loved watching the World's Greatest Detective solve crimes, kick butt, and hang out with Catwoman. I've read a few of the Batman graphic novels, however it's just a format that I don't particularly enjoy. So when it was announced that Marie Lu would be writing a YA Batman novel for the DC Icons series, I was all on board. I read Warcross earlier this year and absolutely loved it, so I was thrilled to dive into Lu's Gotham.
I'm a little late on this one, but I didn't have my laptop with me while I was away for the Christmas holiday. I also like to make these posts after the year is through -- I'm always worried I'll read an incredible book after I post my list (that would have happened this year, in fact).
Happy New Year! As 2017 comes to a close, 2018 just seems full of promise. I've rounded off my year of reading and am looking forward to sticking to my resolutions and making this space even better for you guys. Let's take a look at the last reading round-up of 2017. Spoiler alert: it was a good month!
Happy Friday! It has been a really great week! We had snow here in the UK over the weekend. It was so cold, but one of the cosiest days ever. Snow, tea, lots of blankets, and books made for a great day.
This is the first book by Gavin Smith that I’ve read, and I’m so happy to say that The Bastard Legion lived up to my hopes and expectations. It has so many things that I absolutely love: a dark and gritty world, cool and complex technology, morally grey characters, and a butt-kicking leading lady. This is a tough one to review because I feel like you should really dive in and discover for yourself, but I’ll do my best.
I had never read anything by Marie Lu before Warcross came out, but I was always interested. When the opportunity to read this book arose, I knew I had to give her a shot. I wasn't sure what to expect and I hadn't read many gaming books.
I feel like I’m saying this at the end of every single month, but seriously how is September already over? This year is absolutely flying by! It has been a brilliant month for reading and for blogging. Not only did I land myself on a few publishers's blogger lists, I launched my YouTube channel! I'm not sure how you could miss that fact if you've been frequently reading this blog -- I'm definitely talking about it and linking it constantly -- but if you did, you can find my channel here 🙂
