Nightcrawler: Where it Started, Why I Like Him, and Comics I Own and Have Read

It might go without saying, but Nightcrawler is my favorite Marvel character.  In my experience, I will find that one character that I really get invested in and want to read up on.  When it comes to DC, that comes in the form of Tim Drake (Red Robin/Robin III), Roy Harper (Speedy/Arsenal), Joey Wilson (Jericho), … Continue reading Nightcrawler: Where it Started, Why I Like Him, and Comics I Own and Have Read

Recommended Reads for Pride Month

With how big my yearly reading goals on Goodreads, I will occasionally do particular theme or topic for an entire month.  For instance, in March, most of the books I might read may involve Ireland in some way, since St. Patrick’s Day is on the seventeenth.  Or for May, a number of the books I … Continue reading Recommended Reads for Pride Month

Whenever you read a book or watch something, how a character is interpreted can vary. Peter Gordon, one of the main characters of the novel and movie The Power of the Dog, has a few ways he can be interpreted. Today, I would like to dissect his psychology and what kind of trauma he may have had.

Alpha and Omega: A Guilty Pleasure Read and Why I Prefer This Series to Mercy Thompson

Guilty pleasure books are fun reads. They don’t have to be necessarily be bad books to be guilty pleasures, just ones that might not be popular, a subgenre, and/or maybe not as good as it could be. My guilty pleasure is an Urban Fantasy series by Patricia Briggs. The Alpha and Omega series. Here’s why I enjoy it more than the concurrent series, the Mercy Thompson series.
