Book/Comic Mini-Reviews: Part 1

210x

Since I kind of fell off the bandwagon the past few months as far as posting, I feel like I have some catching up to do on my reading reviews. Since I prefer to write reviews right after having read something (while it’s still fresh in my mind) I decided the best way to go about it was to do a whole smattering of mini-reviews.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone:

This one was a re-read, but it deserves a mini-review just the same! πŸ™‚ Cupcakes & Machetes and I decided it was time to revisit the beloved series with a buddy read back in February (told you I was behind on my reviews!) πŸ˜› The book was just as magical as I remember it, and the second time around you get the cozy, warm fuzzies that come along with the good old feeling of nostalgia. It was like visiting an old friend. I usually don’t do re-reads since I barely have enough time for all the new books I want to get into, but this was definitely worth coming back to. ❀ It gets a solid 5/5 stars from me the second time around as well. πŸ™‚

Remarkable Books: The World’s Most Beautiful and Historic Works

A book about books! What’s not to love?? Crammed full of information on old manuscripts, the evolution of books, how they were made at various points in history and how they shaped the world we live in, this one was just lovely to read. It also makes a rather dashing coffee table book if I do say so myself. πŸ˜‰ I enjoyed this book bit by bit, savoring all the information over many, many cups of coffee.Β  ❀ Another fun thing I discovered once I’d finished reading it, is that there is a pocket in the back of the book with four fancy little book marks in it for your future reading endeavors. Very informative, and you get presents in the book! Fantastic! 4/5 stars.

Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe (Deadpool Killogy #1)

A quick read where you get exactly what the title tells you you’re going to get. After Professor X sends Wade off to an institution of sorts, our beloved Merc with a Mouth goes off the deep end (though his reasoning isn’t exactly wrong in its own twisted way) and takes down our beloved Marvel characters, both friend and foe, one by one. Loads of murder and mayhem fill the pages. And although we’ve all come to expect Deadpool to break the fourth wall by now, he doesn’t just kind of break it in this story, he utterly destroys it. I liked it, but I wouldn’t say I loved it. If you’re expecting really sassy and funny with a healthy dose of violence, this isn’t really the comic you want to go with.Β  It’s kind of the opposite of that, actually. It’s pretty much ALL bloody murder with only a hint of humor and sass. I’d give it 3/5 stars. That said, I do want to finish reading the “Killogy” (nice wordplay on “trilogy” btw), especially since the second installment sees Deadpool taking on characters in classic literature! πŸ˜€

Well, that’s it for today’s installment of mini-reviews. There are definitely more to come, so I’ll probably have 2 more posts similar to this one til I get back on track with my reading/reviews! They were short and sweet, but hopefully you guys enjoyed them. What are you currently reading? Let’s talk books! ❀

    1. Haha Nice! I have a few Deadpool T-shirts as well, actually. πŸ™‚ I’ve also got a few Batman ones, one Wonder Woman one and a Spider-Man one, too. πŸ˜›
      My boyfriend’s got a couple Deadpool shirts too (and various other Marvel shirts) as well so he’ll often make it a point to wear one of them when I’m donning one of my DC shirts because it’s an ongoing feud in our home. Before we lived together, his home had strictly Marvel stuff and then I busted in with all my DC things. Mwahaha! (I actually enjoy both Marvel and DC, but it’s fun to antagonize the ones we love!) πŸ˜›

  1. That is awesome about secret bookmarks in the back! And it IS quite the handsome coffee table book to boot. πŸ˜€
    I like this idea of mini reviews but I’m caught up on everything except reviewing HP, which I felt too intimidated to do at the time lmao.

    1. Thanks! I thought so too. I was so excited when I found the surprise bookmarks. πŸ™‚
      Kudos to you for keeping so caught up on all your reviews. I’m gonna try to keep up on them more for now, but we’ll see how that goes. πŸ˜› I can understand how doing the HP review can be daunting, but I hope you do one. πŸ˜€ I’d love to read it. Your reviews are always a treat! ❀
