My Beef With Current Literature – A rant by Jo

Harry_Potter_English_Australian_Series

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

Tips-To-Help-Improve-Your-Writing-Skills

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.

I picked this book up because I’ve always loved the movie. I thought it would be interesting to read what had been changed for the film and what they had kept in, I’m a sucker for things like that normally.

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
