Review: Slasher Girls & Monster Boys by Misc.
‘Slasher Girls & Monster Boys’ comes from April Genevieve Tucholke, who has brought together a roster of fourteen YA scribes (herself included) for the purpose of gathering us around the metaphorical campfire and telling us their best ghost stories. The result is about what you’d expect: an uneven but consistently entertaining trip through the joint imagination.

Review: The Sculptor by Scott McCloud
But there comes a point where the commonplace becomes flat. It doesn’t excite. It is not “bad” or of poor quality, but rather creates a wall between the object and its audience, able to be appreciated for its theoretical strengths but not its emotional punch.

“What. Just. Happened.” I said to myself, about every chapter […]

Review: Open Road Summer by Emery Lord
Paola reviews Open Road Summer and explains that while it didn’t meet her original expectations, it was still a fun summer read.
Review: Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld
Its unique storytelling approach and narrative structure is interesting, but “Afterworlds” does not do enough with its eccentricities to make it truly memorable. There is a good story here, but it’s largely buried beneath another, less enjoyable one.
Review: The Zoo Box by Ariel Cohn, Aron Nels Steinke (Illustrations)
Nafiza reviews the Children’s Graphic Novel, The Zoo Box, and explains why it didn’t quite meet her expectations.
Review: Messenger of Fear by Michael Grant
It may not be the most satisfying (or complete) of stories, but its potential is clear, and worth trying given the ease with which it can be read. I only hope that the next installment proves a bit meatier.
Review: The Vanishing Season by Jodi Lynn Anderson
A conversation with myself in which I try to figure […]
Review: Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
It is short, yet memorable. Funny, yet challenging. What more could one need from something with such a delightfully ridiculous cover?
Review: NOS4A2 by Joe Hill
Despite its length, the pages turn quickly, and events move briskly enough to keep the occasional lull brief. Turning the commercialized Christmas season into a playground ripe for terror is no easy task, and Hill proves himself largely capable of the feat.

Review: Don’t Look Back by Jennifer L. Armentrout
