Black Panther

Visually stunning, exceptional characters, great action, and more humor than I was expecting. I don’t know what else to say about Black Panther but to go see it.

Blackguards: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues
by J.M. Martin (editor)

A 4 rocket rating gets marked down to 3 due to the excessive typos. Otherwise, Blackguards is a rich collection of dastardly tales full of rogues, thieves, and assassins.

Legacy
by Lois McMaster Bujold

This second novel in Bujold's Sharing Knife series brings to a close events set in motion in Beguilement. A slow and steady pace (much like a Robin Hobb novel) ensures a long, enjoyable read as Bujold always impresses.

The Collapsing Empire
by John Scalzi

The Collapsing Empire begins a galaxy spanning story full of political backstabbing and shaky alliances. Scalzi's always colorful cast of characters and punchy writing kept me engaged throughout the reading experience. Needless to say, this one doesn't disappoint.

Ship of Magic
by Robin Hobb

Robin Hobb is one of my favorite authors. So of course I went into Ship of Magic expecting the usual greatness. Unfortunately, Hobb let me down on this one.

Bright, a Netflix Film

Bright starring Will Smith as LAPD officer Daryl Ward is one big, hot mess.

Faithless
by Graham Austin-King

Some people might like this book, but I didn't. Flat writing and flatter characters means a DNF in my book. I do love the cover, though.

by Elwyn Tate

The Deep and Snowy Wood by Elwyn Tate is a beautifully illustrated picture book made especially it seems for a setting where the fire is blazing and the kids are gathered round.
