Wires and Nerve Volume 2: Gone Rogue by Marissa Meyer

Review:  I read and reviewed the first book of this series last year, which is available here. I’ve also gone on, at length, about how much I adore Marissa Meyer and the world she created for this series and the Lunar Chronicles. Gone Rogue continues the story with Iko as the protagonist. As mentioned in the first volume, Iko is hunting down the wolf packs that … Continue reading Wires and Nerve Volume 2: Gone Rogue by Marissa Meyer

Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley

Review:   After reading Relish, I just want to sit with Knisley and gush about all our favorite foods. I don’t have quite the educated palate, but it’s one of my favorite topics. Knisley includes a recipe at the end of every chapter of a food she talks about throughout the chapter too and I am definitely going to try them all! Okay, not the pickles. I’m … Continue reading Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley

Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani

Review: My first Read Harder 2018 book! This was my choice for task #8, a comic written or illustrated by a person of color. Though I try to read about other cultures, I do have a tendency to get the terms for things mixed up. I do this with my own mix of Cuban and American things, routinely forgetting what my mom calls some  things … Continue reading Pashmina by Nidhi Chanani

Champions Volume 1: Change the World

Review:  I am absolutely in love with the Champions! I had a feeling I would enjoy it given how much I adore Kamala Khan but this went far beyond my expectations. After the events of Civil War II (discussed here and here), several of the younger Avengers are fed up and quit. They joined the Avengers in the first place because they were more than … Continue reading Champions Volume 1: Change the World

Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 3: Scare Tactics!

Review: I read the first two volumes in this run a while back and had been meaning to catch up on her. The others are reviewed here: Volume 1, Volume 2, and Spider-Women. I finally got a chance to read this one and it was a good send off to the run. I’m not so excited that her run is over, but this is a … Continue reading Spider-Woman: Shifting Gears Volume 3: Scare Tactics!

TTT: Top Ten Comics I Meant to Read in 2017 but didn’t

I had a few ups and downs but managed to get it together and read most of the books I had intended to read for the year. Comic books, not so much. Here are the comics I meant to read this year but didn’t, and totally plan to read in 2018!            Don’t forget to check back with the Broke and Bookish to see more … Continue reading TTT: Top Ten Comics I Meant to Read in 2017 but didn’t

Ms. Marvel Volumes 4-6

Review: Ms. Marvel has been a favorite of mine since she came out a few years ago. Volume Four: Last Days (#16-19 and Amazing Spider-Man #7-8) What would you during the apocalypse? I love the way this volume answers that question, and for more characters than our protagonist. More than that, getting back into these volumes reminded me why I love this series so much. … Continue reading Ms. Marvel Volumes 4-6

Black Panther: World of Wakanda Volume 1

Review:  Last year, I got and read the first issue of this short run and reviewed it here. I didn’t know at the time that it would be a short run, but Marvel cancelled it a few months ago, which is disappointing. Along with the groundbreaking nature of the comic, it was a really good story and characters that I wish I could get to know … Continue reading Black Panther: World of Wakanda Volume 1
