Review of ‘The Weight of a Soul’

An underwhelming read that lacks substance and fails to capture the wonder of Norse Mythology. Continue reading Review of ‘The Weight of a Soul’

Ancient Greece is long gone, their popularity dwindling, the Old Gods have scattered around the globe, their power fading. But, luckily for Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, she remains a household name, even if no one believes in her. Everything became banal, until Loki walked through the door.

Published on August 20, 2014 by Smashwords, The Maenad in Manhattan by Liz Meldon is a fantasy novella about Aphrodite and her brief (and sexual) encounter with the Norse God Loki. Continue reading “A Disappointment to Mythology | Review of ‘The Maenad in Manhattan’ (Lovers and Liar, #1)”

Weekly Reading List #19

By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there avid readers! Okay, so here’s the deal. I will be having 2 separate reading lists (if you haven’t already noticed) one featuring school reads and one reading my out of school reads. The whole reason is because there is just way to much to put it in one article and this way it will give all of us a way to differentiate the pair of them. So here we go, a start of a whole new school year with me trying to stay sane by being me and not letting myself drown in school work.

And, as always, all synopsis are courtesy of Goodreads.

Weekly Reading List #18

By Cynthia Ayala

Hey there readers! So this may be my last really good reading list since I will be starting school next week at Emerson provided that the tropical storm/hurricane does not impede my journey. Since I will be starting school I will mostly be reading school books and ebooks so my reading lists may fluctuate a lot. As for what you can expect in reviews, well there might be a lag here or there since I will also be working 2 jobs and have probably bunches of school work. Ah school, you are so necessary and time consuming. I will be returning to Emerson leaving FL on my 24th birthday (there could be worse birthday’s right?) and hopefully I will get to read everything that I want to read outside of school and work on my side projects and bracelets. On the bright side, I’ll be waking up early because I have to…wait, is that a bright side?

Anyway, you’ve had enough of my rambling so here are the books I hope to read this coming week. And, as always, all synopsis’ are courtesy of Goodreads. Happy reading!

Jeremy Renner Wasn’t Too Psyched About Hawkeye’s Role In The Avengers

By: Katey Rich It was surprising for a lot of us to go into The Avengers and be introduced to Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, only to have him out of commission for much of the movie. Hawkeye had been teased in a brief scene in Thor as a skilled and lethal S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, but in the opening scene of The Avengers he’s turned into a … Continue reading Jeremy Renner Wasn’t Too Psyched About Hawkeye’s Role In The Avengers

Thanos Probably Not The Villain In Thor 2, Says Chris Hemsworth

By: Katey Rich Based on the search terms that have been leading people to this site, we weren’t the only ones who got to the end of The Avengers and were left asking, “Wait, who’s that alien guy?” Luckily our own Eric Eisenberg explained it all for us, and now we know that alien dude was Thanos, the insane alien being who’s one of the … Continue reading Thanos Probably Not The Villain In Thor 2, Says Chris Hemsworth
