My Beef With Current Literature – A rant by Jo


In my lifetime I’ve noticed something disturbing about current literature. For a while I couldn’t put my finger on what was bothering me and even, I grudgingly admit, actively participated in it. Hi everyone, it’s your favorite little sister Jo here, and I just have some things I have to to get off my chest about current literature. Continue reading


When in Rome, do as the Romans do Or Whatever Jo writes, I’ll probably post


So right now I’ve been notified by my wonderful guest reviewer and little Sis, Jo, that she’s writing a “review” about the publishing industry and I’ve decided that I’m not going to limit her to just writing about books and stuff in her reviews. As it stands she has a book review and a game review so I think I’ll let her write about whatever she wants and just deal with it in the aftermath.


Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

Relax, I know this is normally a book review blog and I promise I am reading a thing.

I can hear you all now, getting all kinds of judge-y with me. “Little sis, this isn’t a place for game reviews!” And you’re right, but after clocking in almost 20 hours of game play I decided I had to write a review about it. Continue reading


Sky City: The Rise of an Orphan by R.D Hale


I would first like to say that I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

Now that’s out of the way, I honestly only read about 1/5th of this book because I just could not get into it. Just when it seemed something potentially exciting could happen, nothing happened and everything was fine. I got to the part where a priestess was claiming homosexuality was wrong and decided that I couldn’t read any more. Continue reading
