ARC Review: “I Really Didn’t Think This Through” by Beth Evans

I’m going to give myself a pat on the back for blogging consecutively for the past few days. 🙂 *pat pat, pat pat* I have a small stack of ARCs that I had planned to read a while… Alas, that didn’t happen. But since I’m on summer break, I hope to catch up.

This book was sent to me by the author. Thank you, Beth! All quotes are taken directly from the ARC and may change in the final copy.

ARC Review: “In Real Life” by Cory Doctorow & Jen Wang

So, I’m really confused at this book. I requested in via NetGalley and the publisher lists the release date as February 13. But when I check on Goodreads, it’s been out since 2014!

Thanks NetGalley and First Second / Square Fish Books for giving a free digital copy in exchange for an honest review.

Review: “Lady Killer, Vol. 1” by Joëlle Jones & Jamie S. Rich

I picked up this book on a whim on a trip to my local library. I’d actually seen this comic around the comic book shops (when I actually went to them–it’s been a while) and I liked the premise and the art but I never did manage to buy it.

So of course I’m minding my own business, perusing the displays at the library, when I see a whole display of just comic volumes. I saw this and picked it up without question. I needed something easy to read and this was really perfect.

Review: “Hyperbole and a Half” by Allie Brosh

My husband kept asking me one day if I knew who Allie Brosh was, but I kept telling him I didn’t know and wondered why he continued to ask. Well, I had heard of “Hyperbole and a Half” but I didn’t know it was such a widely popular web comic series. He mentioned seeing her on an MTG documentary and also on Will Wheaton’s Tabletop videos on YouTube so I thought I’d go ahead and look Brosh up. Alas! When I saw she had a book out, I thought, “Yes! I will get it and read it and it will be hilarious!”

And it is, guys. It really is.
