Unfortunate Bugs

I had the weirdest bug on my computer when writing my last post. Seriously, every single time I would try to publish something, it deleted all of my progress. So. Darn. ANNOYING! So I'm sorry I didn't post for a while, but I had that to worry about. I apologize for the delay, readers!
The Girl In The Steel Corset

* * * * */ Five Stars

Genre: not even going to bother; you name it, this book has it

Finley Jane has a dark side. Not a, "I stole your candy bar and ate it right in front of you slowly," type of dark side, but a, "I have almost supernatural abilities when I lose control and am capable of destroying my enemies with a flick of my hand," type of affliction. Needless to say, staying afloat is rather hard; especially when one can't remember what happened while their other side took over. But Finley's life is turned around when she meets Griffin King. The young duke and his group of friends are . . . different, much like Finley, with their own set of skills. Small but fiery Emily can talk to and control machines, Sam is super strong and heals scarily fast (and is kind-of an accidental cyborg), and Griffin himself can manipulate and enter the aether, a mysterious layer of our world where ghosts and other beings dwell. At Griffin's manor, Finley may have finally found a home. But with a recent series of seemingly disjointed crime sprees, an evil mastermind called the Mechanist, a strange murder, and some evil automatons, danger is clearly at large. Add in Finley's conflicted feelings over both criminal Jack Dandy and Griffin King, Finley's dual sides, and Sam's cold shoulder, and a full blown mess is created. Will Finley and her new friends be able to find the real villain, or will they be too late to save their city from the full blown storm of chaos in its midst?
Kady Cross had created a delightful steampunk world filled with both whimsy and intrigue. If you like Gail Carriger's Etiquette & Espionage you will love this incredible story.

Video for Today

Here's today's superhero short, centering around Thor's movie. Have fun watching it!

Tuesday, August 16, 2016


So I made a promise on google plus to post a How It Should Have Ended superhero video every day until Friday. Well yesterday I didn't, sorry, so today I will post 2. Enjoy!

Guardians of the Galaxy refers to . . . waste, in the beginning, so for those of you who don't need the thought implanted in your brains, although nothing is shown, don't watch the start.

Huh. Wierd . . .

My latest post, The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates: Magic Marks the Spot somehow ended up labeled under July instead of August. Anyways, if you see it on the page, just know that it's new and that I didn't skip today. Thanks!

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

* * * * */ Five Stars

Genre: Skip! (It's a Harry Potter book; we all know it's a continuation of that adventure and has the same genre)

Albus Severus Potter is named after two famous wizards, his dad is the renown Harry Potter, and he is expected to be the cream of the crop in Hogwarts. Instead, he befriends Scorpious Malfoy, the son of Death-Eater Draco Malfoy and the butt of many a rumor, enters Slytherin, is terrible at quidditch, and is wildly unpopular. What use is being the son of a prodigy if you don't fit in? Meanwhile, Hermione, now the Minister of Magic, has confiscated an illegal time turner that can travel way back; years, even. After hearing how Cedric was killed in the Triwizard Tournament, Albus pulls Scorpius into stealing the time turner from the ministry and using it to save Cedric's life, a feat not even his famous father had accomplished. But even the smallest actions can affect the future, and with a new, hidden evil rising behind everyone's noses, they may have just put their world at risk. Will these two misfits be able to set everything right, or will darkness reign again?
I love love love the way J.K. Rowling (and Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, of course) wove components of all 7 of the previous books into this last outstanding story continuation. It's a real nod to the originals that is much appreciated and welcomed by the fan community. Complete with alternate realities, a great cast of characters (pun intended), and a wonderful, whimsical adventure that only Rowling could have thought up, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a phenominal conclusion to the series, even if it is written in script format.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child! AAAAAAHHHHHHH!

I'm so sorry I haven't been keeping to my promise to post a review each day. I've been busy reading the new Harry Potter book! It. Was. AWESOME. I don't think it fits as well into the story as the rest of the books do, but it was still a very interesting and great novel created in the signature Harry Potter world that we love. Today I will be writing a review on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Hang in there, and again, I apologize.
