Reviews: March—May 3

I’ve been reading, I swear, but things have gotten busy and reviews have fallen by the wayside. But! I have books to review so here we go.

Books

Sissy by Jacob Tobia

This…I really thought I’d written a review for this, but I guess I didn’t. This was a great gender book, especially for those of us who are non-binary. There are a lot of trans narratives out there, but few for non-binary people. I really want to find one from a FTM point of view. But this is a great book to explain basic gender stuff and not-so-basic gender stuff.

The Stranger Diaries by Elly Griffiths

This was a great mystery that I hope starts a series. It’s a solid one-and-done, a good mystery with a twist that feels satisfying. It also stars a queer WOC as the main detective and she’s great. I definitely recommend.

Warlock Holmes: A Study in Brimstone by G. S. Denning

This is a great combination of mystery, fantasy, and humor. Warlock Holmes is no detective. Instead, he gets his information from the demons he controls. John Watson has to do much of the detecting on these cases. I read the first book and had to buy the next three, including pre-ordering the next book.

They All Fall Down by Rachel Howzell Hall

This is an American version of And Then There Were None and it’s perfect. Everyone is flawed and every murder leads to another so smoothly. I finished this book in one sitting and you probably will too.

Comics

Batgirl and the Birds of Prey Vol. 1-3

This actually exceeded my expectations because they did Helena a solid. That’s it, that’s my review.

Forever Evil

I love Lex’s internal monologue and I want more of it. Also, Lex and Bizarro 5ever.

I’ve also read some other comics but they’re both collections of various comics, so….

Anyway! Hopefully I’ll be back sooner with new books!
