Born in Massachusetts, Nancy moved to Maine after acquiring her BA in English from the University of Maine at Farmington. She has also received her MLIS from the University of Rhode Island. Nancy spends her days working as a librarian, mornings on writing, and nights reading great books. In 2014, Nancy's short fiction will appear in Inaccurate Realities, Luna Station Quarterly, and The Lorelei Signal. She is currently hard at work on a YA fantasy trilogy.

I used to think that Squirrel Girl was just a joke. In my defense, that was usually how she was brought up, in a laughable, dismissive way. I distinctly remember some form of the phrase “Even Squirrel Girl will have her own Marvel movie before DC figures out how put popular character X onfilm”…

It appears that there's a really interesting story here, too bad you only get about a third if it. Supergirl, vol 3: Sanctuary, continues DC's tradition of having these large crossover events (this one involving the Sueprgirl, Superman, and Superboy ...more

“If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything.”

Joshua Foer
“Monotony collapses time; novelty unfolds it. You can exercise daily and eat healthily and live a long life, while experiencing a short one. If you spend your life sitting in a cubicle and passing papers, one day is bound to blend unmemorably into the next - and disappear. That's why it's so important to change routines regularly, and take vacations to exotic locales, and have as many new experiences as possible that can serve to anchor our memories. Creating new memories stretches out psychological time, and lengthens our perception of our lives.”
Joshua Foer, Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything

John Green
“Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (...) You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you'll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

Crowinator You're welcome. It was a great review. I especially liked your point about September being a regular girl and how that changed the standard "mythical hero" fantasy tropes.

Nancy O'Toole Yes. I have read them all, but to be honest it's been a while. I went through a huge manga phase while going for my undergrad. Since then, I haven't read all that much of it. If you're looking for any opinions, I'll do my best :)


Rachael I just discovered your manga shelf. Have you read all the books on that list, or are some to-read? I don't read too much manga because I hate searching for them in my library, but I do occasionally pick some up. I watch Korean & Japanese dramas though, so searching for the manga version of those led me to your shelf.
