The Last Jedi

I can only recommend the movie, because even with its lackluster first half, the second is great cinema and a new (old) face to the Battle between Jedi and Sith, Rebellion and Empire. I’m looking forward to the last movie in this trilogy very much and am finally happy with where the franchise is at the moment and hopeful for the direction it’s going.

The Last Colony by John Scalzi

The third book in the Old Men’s War Series by John Scalzi brings back beloved characters, notably John Parry, who made the first book such an enjoyable experience. He’s not lost his humor while getting shot at in the wars of the CDF, but it comes through much less than in the first book. The whole story…

The 13 episode Daredevil TV-Series by Netflix is the best thing to happen to superhero movies/TV.

This will be the series others will be weighted by and it sets a precedent…

The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi

After finishing Old Men’s War a few days ago, I immediately jumped onto the next book in the series. It made me a bit guilty to push back other books, but not much. The first book just made me need to read on and so I succumbed to the urge pretty quickly. It was worth it.

A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan

Actually, I’d probably have to change the headline into “A Natural History of Dragons by Lady Trent“. She’s the fictional author of this book, telling the reader her life’s story. And that’s one hell of a story told by one hell of a lady.

Old Men’s War by John Scalzi

Old Men’s War is the first book I’ve read by John Scalzi and I can already reveal that it will definitely not be the last. And I don’t just mean that the book was good enough to make me want to read the other books in the series. No, it was good enough to make…

The Golem and the Djinni by Helene Wecker

The Golem and the Djinni had all around been proclaimed one of the (if not the) best fantasy book of 2013. When I saw I could buy it cheaply I jumped at the opportunity. I finally started reading the book a few weeks ago and got sucked into a vivid world with powerful characters. The book takes its…
