The Sandman and the War of Dreams

So You Created a Wormhole: The Time Traveler's Guide to Time Travel
I liked this book. There's a great thread of humour throughout and I found myself cheering whenever there were (many) geeky references. I like that it...more

Kiki: My Stylish Life (Lotus Lane, #1)
Another that's the start of a new series from Scholastic. The characters are basic but relate-able. It felt a little stereotypical that the girl's so...more

The Familiars
This is a sweet little fantasy, young adult novel. It's listed as for 8-12 year olds and I found nothing in it to dissaude that. It was sweet, funny,...more

The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal Volume 3: Ten Days of Perfect Tunes
