Mini(bot) Reviews: Come Tumbling Down

As you likely already know, I love the Wayward Children series by Seanan McGuire, so of course, I was going to get my little robotic mitts on the latest book in the series as soon as it was released. I’m just late with my review because that’s how I roll now, haha.

Playing catch-up with my 2019 reviews and I wanted to share a few quick thoughts on four great comics/graphic novels I read at the end of last year (and one from the beginning of this year.)

Book Review: Hollow Kingdom

Hollow Kingdom
By Kira Jane Buxton

My Edition:
Hardcover, 308 pages
2019, Grand Central Publishing
ISBN: 9781538745823

S.T. (that’s short for Shit Turd) is a domesticated crow and he finds himself out on a crazy adventure in the wide world when his best friend, and owner, Big Jim, comes down sick and needs some help. S.T. considers himself a human and feels disconnected from the animal kingdom at large, so his only partner on this adventure is Big Jim’s big, dumb dog, Dennis. The two set out to find a cure and S.T. learns he can rely on Dennis and his own wild instincts. But can they fix what’s wrong with Big Jim and the other humans?

This book has re-defined the post-apocalyptic/zombie genre for me and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

Book Review: Blood Sugar

Blood Sugar
By Daniel Kraus

My Edition:
ARC Paperback, 222 pages
2019, Titan Books
ISBN: 9781789091939 (trade paperback)

From the back of the book: In a ruined house at the end of Yellow Street, an angry outcast hatches a scheme to take revenge for all the wrongs he has suffered. With the help of three alienated kids, he plans to hide razor blades, poison, and broken glass in Halloween candy, maiming or killing dozens of innocent children. But as the clock ticks closer to sundown, will one of his helpers – an innocent himself, in his own streetwise way – carry out or defeat the plan?

I can’t blurb this book because I wasn’t prepared for how much it would fuck me up and I don’t know how to summarize it without going into way too much detail.
