Mini Reviews | A Dead Djinn in Cairo & The Haunting of Tram Car 015 – P. Djèlí Clark

Every month I get the Tor.com newsletter and with that comes a free ebook. Last month that was The Haunting of Tram Car 015. That title immediately grabbed my attention, probably because 015 is my area code, and I looked the story up on Goodreads. I found out this novella was the second in a series and that the first short story was for free on Tor.com as well. So I decided to read both as soon as possible. And I’m so happy I did! So today I have a mini review for both stories. Let’s jump in. Continue reading “Mini Reviews | A Dead Djinn in Cairo & The Haunting of Tram Car 015 – P. Djèlí Clark”

Mini Reviews | Goldie Vance vol 1 – 3 – Hope Larson & Brittney Williams

Scribd gives out a free month long trial because of the worldwide quarantine. So of course I made use of that! I had a couple of graphic novels on my to read list I wanted to try through Scribd. As soon as I started my free trial, I picked up Goldie Vance. I believe there are currently 4 volumes but Scribd limits you and I wasn’t able to read the fourth volume. So today I want to talk about the first 3 volumes. Let’s dive in! Continue reading “Mini Reviews | Goldie Vance vol 1 – 3 – Hope Larson & Brittney Williams”

Mini Reviews | Poetry Edition

I don’t read a lot of poetry, to be exact I think I’ve read 5 poetry collections in recent years. But I do really enjoy them every now and then. Especially these what I believe to be more modern poetry collections draw my attention. I’m not one to analyze poems, so I like to understand them right away. This definitely is something that factors into my enjoyment of a poetry collection. For today I wanted to talk about two poetry collections, but do keep in mind I’m pretty much a newbie in this genre.  Continue reading “Mini Reviews | Poetry Edition”

Let’s take a look at which ones I read this past weekend. Continue reading “Mini Reviews | Comics Edition #9”

Mini Reviews | The Murderbot Diaries – Martha Wells

I first heard about The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells in one of Emily Fox’s booktube videos and thought it sounded pretty interesting. And then I found out all four of them were available on Scribd. So I binge-listened to them super quickly. They are novellas so they’re all quite short and you will go through them in no time at all. There will be a full length Murderbot novel in 2020 and I’m very excited about that. But for now, let’s see what I thought about the four novellas.  Continue reading “Mini Reviews | The Murderbot Diaries – Martha Wells”
