Lunar Chronicles = Star Wars

Like Star Wars, The Lunar Chronicles utilizes familiar sci-fi archetypes, such as the ace pilot, the plucky heroine, and the damsel in distress. I love both series for exactly this reason.

It offered a place for boys and… Continue reading My Little Pony Book Tag

It deserves the spotlight. Dread Nation by Justina Ireland "Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the… Continue reading February Book-of-the-Month Club
