iZombie Vol. 1: Dead to the World
iZombie Vol. 1: Dead to the World by Chris Roberson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Short but sweet, this was a different look at creatures of the supernatural. Gwen is a zombie who has to eat brains once a month to keep from becoming a shambling mess and her best friends are a ghost and a were-terrier. Very cute, very sweet and definitely something anyone who enjoys the out of the ordinary.

Review: Bossypants

August 5, 2011

Bossypants
Bossypants by Tina Fey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a cute collection of stories from Tina Fey and it was just as funny in her book as she is when watching her shows. There is no plot that holds it together as it is a collection of new and old material but that does not make it less enjoyable. The overview of the Sarah Palin sketches was golden. A quick read but good.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Graphic Novel
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Graphic Novel by Seth Grahame-Smith
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A great adaption of one of my favorite novels. I was curious how they would compress the long novel into a graphic novel but it was deftly done and still maintained all of the important bits of the plot line. Definitely a great book for anyone who loves PPZ the original or who wanted to read the novel but could not convince themselves to read that much. Thanks to [a:Eric Smith|228318|Eric Smith|http://www.goodreads.com/images/nophoto/nophoto-U-50×66.jpg] at Quirk Books for sending me a copy.

Review: Hunter

August 3, 2011

Hunter
Hunter by Wil Wheaton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a short story but it was so powerful. A very quick read but definitely what could be an amazing start for a full length novel. There are a lot of dystopian books out there but this one reminded me of older science fiction like Marion Zimmer Bradley’s A Door Through Space which could inspire a new generation of science fiction writers. This was just absolutely amazing and something I hope Wheaton turns into a full novel. Just crazy amazing.

Review: Marvel Weddings

August 3, 2011

Marvel Weddings
Marvel Weddings by Stan Lee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A very sweet collection of the major marriage moments in the Marvel universe. In reading this anthology, you do lose a bit of the story line because you are not reading it along with the actual comic that surrounds it but the authors are always good enough to explain what is going on and all of them are standalones so we can all read about the wedding. Spiderman and Mary Jane, Scott Summers and Jean Grey, Yellowjacket and Wasp, Bruce Banner and Betty Ross, Reed and Sue Richards, Quicksilver and Crystal- all had beautiful comic books devoted to their weddings. This is a great book for comic book fans who are recently married (such as myself) or anyone who just needs a little bit of awwwwwwww in their day.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An amazing end to the series. We come back to Terre d’Ange after 10 years of peace to go on another adventure that takes Phedre and Joscelin further and darker than they have ever gone before. I am always amazed at how many plots Jacqueline Carey can keep in her head and still bring them all to a wonderful conclusion without losing touch with the characters and what they want. I love her books and the Kushiel series is one of my favorites. Just amazing.
