I am an avid reader and love writing book reviews. Hopefully you will find your next great read here. I read a little bit of everything including comics and graphic novels, YA and children’s literature, non-fiction, and more.

  • Superheroes, Time Travellers, and Fairy Tales (Graphic Novels Have it All)

    I am continuing my mission to record every book I read over the course of this year. So far, you have seen hip-hop memoirs, novels, and the  first batch of graphic novels. I love that you can get graphic novels from the library. Here are the latest ones that I have borrowed. Doctor Who – The […]

  • Recommended Reads – Fables

    Here is the latest addition to my Recommended Reads list. Tomorrow I will be launching a Table of Contents page so you can cruise through all of the titles quickly. This one is another graphic novel and it is full of characters that everyone knows and not of one them is a superhero. The characters […]

  • Recommended Reads – Grease Monkey

    I just love the public library. I can’t tell you how many books I have discovered there, quite by accident, that have made it onto my all-time favourites list. This book is just the latest addition. I’m only half way through it but it has totally pulled me into this fictional world. I stayed up […]

  • Jericho Returns for a Third Season

    Jericho is an amazing television series that I have written about here time and time again. I was hooked on it from the very first episode. It drew me in and kept me on the edge of my seat for 22 episodes. Unfortunately, this amazing show didn’t have the numbers that the network wanted to […]

  • My Summer Reading List

    I did a lot of reading this summer. Here is a list of what I read. I didn’t keep track of all the graphic novels that I got from the public library so this is not a complete list. I’ve often thought that I should keep a detailed reading log. Perhaps this will be the […]

  • Novel Study Takes to the Track

    My all-time favourite novel is Heartbeat by Sharon Creech. I have been sharing it with my class all week long. We’ve been listening to the audio book and following along with copies of the novel. I can’t say enough good things about this book. It is beautiful and poetic and tells a really great story. […]

  • Rap Group Got Me Reading a Classic

    I consider myself to be an avid reader. You can always find a book or two on the nightstand beside my bed. I utilize the library frequently and read everything from fiction to non-fiction to comic books to young adult novels to magazines and newspapers. I’m an English major and I have read a lot […]

  • The Escapists

    It’s not often that I read a graphic novel and say “Wow! That was amazing!” It happened with Frank Miller’s “The Dark Knight Returns” and the again with Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ “Watchmen.” These two books deserve the classic status that they have earned in the comic industry. Both of those books took the […]

  • Love is a Mix tape

    I love mix tapes. I used to make them all the time. I made tapes off of the radio. I taped my favourite songs from a variety of different tapes or records. And then I got really serious about it. I bought a mixer and used my CD walkman and my regular mini-component system to […]

  • Novel Study Tradition Begins

    One of my all-time favourite books is Heartbeat by Sharon Creech. I stumbled upon it one day because I was getting tired of my daily commute to work. I decided that I would start listening to audio books on the drive instead of CDs or the radio. I picked out a few from the children’s […]
