Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Every once and a while you will pick up a book with the expectation that it will be fun, or interesting, and it simply blows your mind with how far it left your expectations behind.  When I picked up Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky, I had no idea what I was in for.  More…

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman is a legend, no doubt about it. However, I find many of his books hit or miss. The author is dominant when scribing a comic or children’s book- Fortunately, the Milk is one of my favourite reads. When it comes to other books like American Gods, I had a difficult time getting invested…

Sunday Mush en Claws (Oct. 23 to 29, ‘017)

Happy Halloween weekend! The most frightening part of a Tuesday Halloween as a parent is Wednesday. Sending children to school with a candy hangover feels like torture. Welcome to the Sunday Mush en Claws, a terrible spooky pun for the Sunday Mise en Place. A weekly series where I talk about last week, because I…

Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff

I’ll be honest with you, I have been putting off writing this book review for a while. I’ve had many mixed feelings towards this YA-novel, and needed time to put my thoughts in order. Whether my opinions are in order yet, I’m not sure, but I will try to give you the best review I…

Sunday Mise en Place (Sept. 25 to Oct. 1, ‘017)

Welcome back to the Sunday Mise en Place. The weekly post on the Green Onion Blog about nothing and everything. Here you can find information on the blog, on Plog the podcast, and a bit about me and my life. Last week was the first time in what feels like ever, that I missed composing…

Warcross by Marie Lu

As best selling author Marie Lu’s new book approached its September release this year there was a staggering amount of ARC reviews. I can confidently say that I have never seen that many ARC’s released during my blogging career. Maybe what stood out was how positive every review was. Lu has been one of the…

Deconstructed: Sub-Mariner #26

For this weeks Deconstructed we are going back to look at one of Marvel Comics most underrated (or overrated, depends how you look at it) characters. Namor the Sub-Mariner is an importants piece to Marvel Universe cannon. Sometimes the hero, often the villain, the first comic book anti-hero. The king of Atlantis has aligned with…

Black Hammer: Secret Origins by Jeff Lemire and Dean Ormston

It is about time I got around to reviewing the 2017 Eisner Award winner for best new series, Black Hammer. Written by none other than my favourite comic scribe, and constant hero of the Green Onion Blog, Jeff Lemire. Funny, I put this book off because I worry that you, the readers, are sick of…

Deconstructed: Amazing Spider-Man #244

With all the hype after Ned Leeds appeared in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and the potential of that leading into a Hobgoblin storyline, I thought a throwback to some classic Hobgoblin comics was in order. Unfortunately, I do not have a copy of Hobgoblins first appearance in #238. The mystery of who Hobgoblin truly was/is one of…

Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman

I have read an insane amount of positive reviews on Illuminae and its sequel, Gemina.  It almost feels like I am the last book blogger to hop on this train.  What took me so long?  I have no idea.  One of the biggest appeals for these books is their unique structure.  Unique book design is…

Sunday Mise en Place (July 3 to 9, ‘017)

Hey, hey, it’s Sunday, time to get the Mise en Place on.  A weekly feature of the G.O.B. where I talk about this, that and whatever.  Also included is some links to posts of the previous week and a quick teaser of what is coming in the next bit.  I am off to a late…
