I Am a Hero Rating:
Zombie stories is a hit or miss genre for many people. Perhaps this is simply due to oversaturation; it isn’t as if zombie novel, anime, manga, or movies are in any short supply. Yet, one such zombie stories I have heard nothing but praise for is the manga series I Am A Hero. I Am A Hero Omnibus Vol 1 by Kengo Hanazawa is a slow, careful look at and the events that set off an outbreak of a zombie virus.

Glass Town By:

During my last trip to the library a recent release I’d not heard much about caught my eye. Glass Town by Steven Savile is a novel that combines traditional noir mystery, the glamour of 1920s filmmaking, and fantasy in wonderful harmony.

(All reviews are our own, honest opinions.)
Well, here we are. A new volume of My Hero Academia is being released tomorrow, February 6, 2018, and season 3 of the anime is fast approaching. My Hero Academia Vol. 11 by Kohei Horikoshi is a fast paced race to the end of the current arc, filled with battles, fallout from the numerous villain attacks on U.A., and It’s tense. It’s exciting. And if you listen to OST’s from the anime version when reading manga and the song I Am Here happens to begin playing right around page 94 like it did with me, be prepared to cry.
The Book of Joan By:
April 18, 2017
I really love dystopian books. I really didn’t love this dystopian book. The Book of Joan by Lidia Yukinovitch was disappointing conglomeration of ideals that at once said nothing of substance and beat the reader over the head with what messages it did convey.
Papillon Vol 1 By:
Elina Ishikawa Release Date:
Oct 14, 2008
I won’t lie. I originally checked this book out of the library simply because the title matched the name of Papillon, my favorite villain from Buso Renkin. (What can I say? I like my 90s shonen anime.) Of course, this is a shojo manga, so I wasn’t expecting anything remotely similar to Buso Renkin. But I wasn’t expecting to dislike Papillon Vol 1 by Miwa Ueda even half as much as I did.
