Epic Reads Book Tag

Hi everyone, it’s time for another thrilling book tag! It’s the Epic Reads tag, which I found on Maxxesbooktopia. I didn’t see any rules, so it’s just a quick set of questions and answers, most of which turned out to be very thought-provoking and/or difficult to pin down. 1) If you could invite one author and…… Continue reading Epic Reads Book Tag

February #readmyowndamnbooks Update

Hi everyone, it’s time for my first #readmyowndamnbooks challenge update! This is a super chill thing about reading books you already own. I have a goal of five books a month, mainly focused on physical books because those are the ones I want to clear out.

Is This Feminism? Grant Morrison’s Wonder Woman

I’m a big fan of DC Comics’ Earth One series.

A lot of us came out the next day in solidarity… I was already “out,” but posted about it on Facebook for the first time.

2016 Book Survey!

Welcome to the 2016 book survey, designed and hosted by Perpetual Page-Turner! I read exactly 300 books! (Not a coincidence, I realized mid-December that I was at 282 and went on a bender to make 300). The survey is super fun, makes it easier to compare books meaningfully, and keeps the “favorites” list a year-wide thing…… Continue reading 2016 Book Survey!

Today I bring you the shortest of reviews. I won’t waste your time — you could be spending it reading this book, after all: O Human Star is a comic which the creator, Blue Delliquanti, identifies as a “science fiction family drama.” It’s full of queer characters and robots.
