By Sarah Graley

My Edition:
Paperback, 110 page
2019, Oni Press
ISBN: 9781620106372

Kim and Becka are back! The two are trying to find time to date, but Kim’s terrible schedule as a part-time reaper is really making things hard.

In an effort to support Becka and Tyler’s love of Vampire Teen Drama (their favorite show), Kim takes the gang to Vampire Island. Only things don’t quite go as planned…

You might recall my first list of reasons why I enjoy this comic. I’m back to tell you even more reasons why I love this series.

Book Reviews: Francesca Lia Block (Part 1)

I had the chance to buddy read this book with Ekho (their blog and Instagram), if you call the two of us finishing it in a span of two and four days, respectively, a buddy read. I’m pleased to be able to bring you our buddy review too!

Book Review: Sabella

Sabella
By Tanith Lee

My Edition:
Paperback, 157 pages

Sabella lives on the Earth-like colony of Nova Mars in the house where her mother died.

But Sabella knows what to do with handsome young men; she’s been feeding off their blood since she was fourteen. However, this young man brings with him a host of troubles that bring Sabella out of her secluded life.

I loved Sabella as a character, but as a book, not so much.
