Mini Reviews: Hamilton, Legenderry

Ugh, balancing time between work and hobbies have become almost impossible at this rate, especially when I find myself constantly thinking about grading papers instead of doing other, more sane things. *shudders*

That said, books must be read, reviews must be written! At least, I try to get as many reviews written as I can.

One of which is a nonfiction. Yay! I need to add more of these in my life, and I do have a few more lined up somewhere. Audiobook-style.

This other one was a bit disappointing after a time. I try not to dwell on it, because it’d be my first attempt at steampunk this year and the results were lukewarm at best. (And I usually am biased for my steampunk, so that’s saying something…)

Legenderry: A Steampunk Adventure counts as #1 on my Steampunk Reading Challenge.

Mini Reviews: White Sand, The Way of Shadows

Alright, so I’m not really counting these two reads as 2017 reads, because I’d actually finished them last year. That said, I did want to throw in these mini reviews since I didn’t have a chance a couple weeks back. The first, White Sand, is a Sanderson original in graphic novel form, and is part of his Cosmere universe (which is friggin’ awesome). The second is the graphic novel version of Brent Weeks’ The Way of Shadows, which lends fabulously in comic medium.

Mini Reviews: As You Wish, Starship Troopers

A few minis here! I will admit, neither book was in my comfort zone, though to be fair, the memoir was at least about a fantasy book and movie (The Princess Bride), which made it a more understandable choice. The only reason I picked up Starship Troopers in the first place was that it was an audiobook and it held an interest because of the movie based on the book (not that the movie was one of my favorite things ever, but it did become a cult classic). In any case, I’ve at least read some non-fiction this year!
