Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol

Published July 25, 2016 by Kaitlin Michelle

9615347

Goodreads Summary:

Anya could really use a friend. But her new BFF isn’t kidding about the “Forever” part.
Of all the things Anya expected to find at the bottom of an old well, a new friend was not one of them. Especially not a new friend who’s been dead for a century.
Falling down a well is bad enough, but Anya’s normal life might actually be worse. She’s embarrassed by her family, self-conscious about her body, and she’s pretty much given up on fitting in at school. A new friend—even a ghost—is just what she needs.
Or so she thinks. Spooky, sardonic, and secretly sincere, Anya’s Ghost is a wonderfully entertaining debut from author/artist Vera Brosgol.

My Thoughts:

This graphic novel is about Anya Borzakovskaya, a Russian immigrant who is trying very hard to fit into her private school.  When she accidentally falls down a well, she meets a ghost named Emily, who she wants absolutely nothing to do with.  When she is rescued from the well, she finds that Emily came with her, because she accidentally took a bone with her, and the ghost is attached to her bones, so as long as Anya keeps the bone with her, the ghost can be nearby.  She realizes having a ghost-friend can be an awesome resource to help on tests and talk to boys.  This book deals with a lot of things other than the spooky.  Anya struggles with fitting in, her culture, and her body image.  The artwork, although simplistic, fits very well with the story.  It’s very straight forward and easy to follow, unlike some other graphic novels I have read recently.  A great place to start if you are just getting into comics and graphic novels.

My close friend, Amanda Panda, and I went to a makeup class! It was so fun!  It was kind of chaotic and all of the place, but we did learn how to do eyebrows and contour.

Warlock Holmes – A Study in Brimstone by G.S. Denning

Published July 18, 2016 by Kaitlin Michelle

26150538

Goodreads Summary:

Sherlock Holmes is an unparalleled genius who uses the gift of deduction and reason to solve the most vexing of crimes.

Warlock Holmes, however, is an idiot. A good man, perhaps; a font of arcane power, certainly. But he’s brilliantly dim. Frankly, he couldn’t deduce his way out of a paper bag. The only thing he has really got going for him are the might of a thousand demons and his stalwart flatmate. Thankfully, Dr. Watson is always there to aid him through the treacherous shoals of Victorian propriety… and save him from a gruesome death every now and again.

An imaginative, irreverent and addictive reimagining of the world’s favourite detective, Warlock Holmes retains the charm, tone and feel of the original stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle while finally giving the flat at 221b Baker Street what it’s been missing for all these years: an alchemy table.

Reimagining six stories, this riotous mash-up is a glorious new take on the ever-popular Sherlock Holmes myth, featuring the vampire Inspector Vladislav Lestrade, the ogre Inspector Torg Grogsson, and Dr. Watson, the true detective at 221b. And Sherlock. A warlock.

My Thoughts:

I love Sherlock Holmes! I love the Robert Downey, Jr. movies, the BBC show, Elementary. All of it.  But, I have a confession. I’ve never even read the original books! I know! I need to read them. I want to read them. But instead I read Warlock Holmes! Forget the Sherlock Holmes you know and love and make room on your bookshelf for Warlock Holmes.  Where Sherlock is brilliant and able to deduce the most minuscule details from seemingly nothing, Warlock Holmes fails miserably.  He does, however have the power of demons behind him.  His new roommate John Watson has to help him time and time again from letting his powers be revealed to the general public.  Delightfully witty, this book is great for any Sherlock fan.  Quirky, funny, and clever are all excellent words to describe  this quick read.  The book is divided into several cases that Warlock and Watson must solve, to assist the real Scotland Yard detectives, Lestrade (a vampire) and Grogsson (an ogre.) If they can’t solve the cases, they risk being incriminated themselves, because of their oddities.  I would definitely keep reading this series if they release more books.

TBT Review: Lash by Tara Fox Hall

Published July 14, 2016 by Kaitlin Michelle

TBTI had a different book blog, and I had a bunch of problems with the blog hosting company, and all of my content was deleted.  I managed to salvage some of my reviews from back then by compiling what  I wrote on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles review sections.  I will be posting these reviews under a new blog post called Throw Back Thursday Reviews, until I have posted them all on this blog. :) See some that I have already posted here.

Goodreads Summary:

Scarred from a childhood spent in perpetual indigence after being forced from their home in the Everglades, weresnake Trystan Valeras and his family make their way to the Case Hotel. When his wealthy gangster father arrives the summer he turns sixteen, Trystan’s dream of a better life, along with the lovely aristocrat Mara, is suddenly within his grasp. Instead of paradise, a series of devastating events unfold, leading Trystan to become the instrument of his dying father’s revenge. His violent reprisal instigates a backlash of murder and death, forcing Trystan to flee with the remains of his family to the sultry city of New Orleans where he sells himself into the service of the Vampire Lord Abraham. Becoming the assassin Lash to hide his identity, Trystan finds a measure of peace, even as his skill with killing heightens, bringing to him not only new allies, but also new adversaries.
