I discovered podcasts this past week so that was what I was mainly doing at work and such, I have also been writing a lot more lately cause I finally got a laptop so it has been much easier to get things done. I gave all Son of Neptune and Seafire 4/5. I gave Ink, Iron and Glass 3/5.

The Crossover (Graphic Novel) Dugout: The Zombie Steals Home Glitch Sunny Rolls the Dice

Best Friends Ninth House (Alex Stern, #1) Dracula

I binged some graphic novels while I was off for one of my two upcoming root canal retreatments thanks to two abscesses found by my dentist recently. I’ll be getting my other right before Halloween which I guess will keep me from eating any candy at least…

The Crossover was a touching story about two twins and one who feels like everything is going wrong for him and has to deal with the consequences of his actions. Dugout: The Zombie Steals Home was a fun graphic novel adventure that wasn’t so spooky but about teamwork and definitely more middle grade and elementary – not too gorey for a zombie book. Glitch was epic and had a great message I can see why my fifth graders are obsessed with this book. Sunny Rolls the Dice was such a cute story about middle school, Dungeons and Dragons and trying to fit in. Best Friends I really enjoyed as well, a follow up to her previous book Real Friends about middle school and figuring out how to be friends, like boys and all the other things in life.

Ninth House was really good although I couldn’t focus at first and it took some getting into before I felt like I could just read through it. I’m desperate for more now and will have to wait. That’s my problem is I keep up with Bardugo and she can’t write enough for me. 🙂

Dracula was an enjoyable classic, not as dense as I thought it would be and rather an enjoyable read – I listened to it on audio and really enjoyed the narration.

  1. I loved Changeless. I read the books (the series) a few years ago and absolutly loved the characters and worldbuilding. I’m actually curious if the author wrote more books. I def. should check it out. Thank you for reminding me about this book and author. 🙂 Have fun reading.

  2. Oooh, I would love to binge some graphic novels this fall. Best Friends has been on my list for a while and I just need to go check it out, already! And it sounds like I need to get a copy of Glitch, too. Thanks for all these shares!
