Slothilda: Living the Sloth Life
By Dante Fabiero

My Edition:
Hardcover, 111 pages
2018, Skyhorse Publishing
ISBN: 9781510736573

Thank you to the author for sending me this book for free in exchange for my honest review.

Slothilda, like many of us, is just a lady (er, sloth) who wants to be ambitious, but would really rather Netflix and chill, eat delicious snacks and take lots of naps.

The adorable illustrations alone would have been enough for me to check out this book. Not only is Slothilda cute, but she’s 100% relatable!

I received this book for free from LibraryThing in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. All opinions in this post are my own.

This is a compilation of real (well…you know) superheroes that didn’t seem to make the cut, for various reasons like bad timing, too many similar supes already soaring across the pages of other comics, or bad concepts. It spans across several decades, starting from the late 1930s and continuing through the 1990s.

From NetGalley: A brand-new, booze-soaked tale of the Rat Queens reveals a growing menace within the very walls of Palisade. And while Dee may have run from her past, the bloated, blood-feasting sky god N’rygoth never really lets his children stray too far.

From the back of the book: They’re a pack of booze guzzling, death dealing battle maidens-for-hire and they’re in the business of killing all the gods’ creatures for profit. Meet Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief.

Book Review: Strong Female Protagonist

Strong Female Protagonist

ARC e-book, 220 pages (paperback)
2014, Top Shelf Productions
ISBN: 9780692246184 (paperback)

Blurb from NetGalley: With super strength and invulnerability, Alison Green used to be one of the most powerful superheroes around. Fighting crime with other teenagers under the alter ego Mega Girl was fun — until an encounter with Menace, her mind-reading arch-enemy, showed her evidence of a sinister conspiracy, and suddenly battling giant robots didn’t seem so important. Now Alison is going to college and trying to find ways to help the world while still getting to class on time. It’s impossible to escape the past, however, and everyone has their own idea of what it means to be a hero….

I enjoy superhero stories, especially ones where the heroes are questioning their path in life or just trying to be “normal.”
