Spring Cleaning Book Tag

Geez, it’s been a while since I’ve done a tag.  Especially a book tag.  I would love to thank Zezee with Books, for tagging me, and generally being an awesome support, reader, and friend.  Make certain to check out her amazing site- it’s one of my personal favourite book blogs.  Also, this tag was created by…

We Stand on Guard by Brian K. Vaughan and Steve Skorce

First off, allow me to say something that may come as a shock to many of my American friends and readers.  As this graphic novel deals with in a fictional, aggressive manner: the world sees the U.S.A. as the most dangerous, and reckless force on Earth.  Even in Canada, your friends, neighbors, and brothers, we…

Sixth of the Dusk by Brandon Sanderson

I warned you.  As I catch up on any and all the Brandon Sanderson I can get my onion-y hands on, there is going to be a lot of reviews featuring the author.  Last week I wrapped up my look at The Reckoners series with two reviews, Mitosis and Calamity.  Now, the G.O.B. is closing in on talking about all…

Mitosis by Brandon Sanderson

​I may be going a tad out of order with this review, having done reviews for Steelheart and Firefight.  Recently I purchased a new eReader, a Kobo Aura One, it’s spectacular.  Along with such I was able to get a bundle of Brandon Sanderson short stories/novellas that were not included in November’s Ars Arcanum release.  Basically, I have…

Top 10 Lost Items (that almost suck as bad as losing my phone)

Hello? Is this thing on? I have to say, it’s pure insanity how far technology zooms forward in a matter of years.  Recently my phone went on a vacation and stranded me with a shotty computer that I call ××××××; or computer.  Digging deep into my archives, I was able to retrieve an artifact.  A…

Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Typically I begin my reviews with what lead me to read the book in the first place.  Looking back it is hard to nail down my first interactions with Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.  I will have to rewind and plot this out.  When I was in my pre-teen years my parents let my brothers…

Red Onion Review: Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

What is this terrorist, propaganda garbage?  When everyone in the world, ever, elected me to be president- er, blogger, of The Green Onion Blog, I made the decision to read (by read, of course I mean I paid to have my people read it to me (I got great readers, the best)) one of Green’s favourite…

Top 10 Fictional Twins

​When I decided to write this list I was thinking that twins lacked representation in pop culture compared to how many you meet in real life.  However, when I sat down and racked my brain twins started popping up in all corners of fiction.  Don’t worry twins, from children’s books to comic books, you have…

Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

Sometimes you just have to give in to the recommendations and reviews.  After seeing this book on many respectable book blogs, on multiple lists for annual book awards, and being Indigo’s book of the month in October, I had to see what all of the fuss was about.  The blurb to pitch this book is…

Library of Souls by Ransom Riggs

The conclusion of Ransom Riggs’ trilogy of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.  Recently, I have reviewed the first two installments, the titular first novel, and its predecessor Hollow City.  With the release of the Miss Peregrine’s movie in September also came a collection of short stories, Tales of the Peculiar, and the announcement of a new trilogy in…

The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch

Typically, I kick off my book reviews with what brought me to read the book in the first place.  And, this book found its way to the top of my TBR pile, thanks to a couple of my favorite authors.  First, following nearly everything that Brandon Sanderson releases, from blog posts, to pod casts, lectures…
