The Netflix Book Tag!

Good morning friends! I wanted to apologize for not writing posts consistently and on a regular basis as of late. My college studies have been hectic and quite vast thus preventing me from doing anything pleasurable, like reading for fun or blogging as I’d like. But the pile is a bit too intense for me…

W.T.F?! Wednesdays. . . . PILOT!!

Hello readers of all sorts, everywhere! I must say that it feels pretty damn good to be back after almost a month of inactivity. To be perfectly blunt, I have been plagued with the worst fucking type of writer’s block. I had tried just about everything to get over this damn disease—random writing prompts, fan…

Arkham Asylum: Provocative, Introspective Tale on Madness

For some reason, as of late, I have been craving damn good stories in the Batman universe. I have been wanting to read a title that would, not only satisfy this craving, but simultaneously blow my fucking mind. I want to be left with this amazing feeling deep inside of my chest that just fills…

Review: The Other Side of Gravity

Science-fiction is a huge weakness of mine, especially if the stories are on faraway planets with unique civilizations, crazy gadgets, and creative types of world building. I know that you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover, but with The Other Side of Gravity by Shelly Crane it is really difficult not to.…

Review: The Ukrainian and Russian Notebooks

The Ukrainian and Russian Notebooks written by Igort is a graphic novel that tells two distinct stories. The first one is of a forced famine in Ukraine that was shepherded by the USSR between 1931 and 1932. The reason behind such a course of action was due in part to the people of Ukraine not…

Review: Tea with Hezbollah

No, just no on so many levels. While the premise is fascinating, and I do believe that a “sit-down” like this is inherently necessary if we are to find some semblance of peace and understanding between all of these nations and religions as a whole, I just could not get past Dekker’s writing, and unnecessary…

Review: Sputnik Sweetheart

“In the spring of her twenty-second year, Sumire fell in love for the first time in her life. An intense love, a veritable tornado sweeping across the plains–flattening everything in its path, tossing things up in the air, ripping them to shreds, crushing them to bits. The genius of Haruki Murakami’s eloquently unique prose has…

Review: Golem (Graphic Novel)

Golem was an amazing graphic novel that I feel is exceptionally underrated. I believe that it’s difficult for people to get into because the story is highly intelligent and focuses on complex examinations of a fascist government that is run on highly capitalistic practices. Being a science-fiction, politically idealistic thriller, it exhibits a setting where…
