Topside by J.N. Monk & Harry Bogosian (Review)

When Jo, a headstrong maintenance technician, makes an error that destabilizes her planet’s core, she only knows one way to fix things: leaving her underground home for a trip to the planet’s dangerous, unruly surface. Soon she’s wandering through deserts, riding on the backs of giant beasts, and cutting deals with con artists and bounty hunters. Meanwhile, agents of the core are in hot pursuit. J. N. Monk and Harry Bogosian (co-creators of the web-comic StarHammer) present a wild outer-space fantasy about fixing your mistakes and the friends you meet along the way… Read More Topside by J.N.

Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks (Review)

Their last good-bye.… Read More Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell and Faith Erin Hicks (Review)

Check, Please!: #Hockey by Ngozi Ukazu (ARC Review)

Helloooo, Internet Land. Bitty here! Y’all… I might not be ready for this. I may be a former junior figure skating champion, vlogger extraordinaire, and very talented amateur pâtissier, but being a freshman on the Samwell University hockey team is a whole new challenge. It’s nothing like co-ed club hockey back in Georgia! First of all? There’s checking. And then, there is Jack—our very attractive but moody captain… Read More Check, Please!: #Hockey by Ngozi Ukazu (ARC Review)
