Dauntless (The Lost Fleet #1) by Jack Campbell – A Book Review

Military science-fiction is a genre that I enjoy when it’s written well. I love intricate strategies and tactical based battles when I read from this specific genre. It has been very difficult to find books that fit this concept, so I have avoided military SF for quite a long time.

Orange by Ichigo Takano – A Manga Review

This manga series has been on my To-Be-Read list for a very long time (about two years or so). I bought them in omnibus editions, which are pretty hefty, and because of their vast size, they were a bit intimidating to me. But one of my book goals for the 2017 year is to read…… Continue reading Orange by Ichigo Takano – A Manga Review
