Title: Secrets of the Stones Issue 1

Author: Sabrina Kidd & Katy Arrington (Illustrator)

Genre: Graphic Novel

Rating: download

Review: So, the synopsis of Secrets of the Stones states: After suddenly awakening, completely alone and with mysterious injuries, Christine has no recollection of who or where she is. She finds herself pursued by dragons, rogue magicians, and an heiress hell-bent on revenge. Through her own instinct and intuition, Christine must try and piece together the story of her life. Who is a friend and who is a foe? Who had she been and who will she become? Sometimes it is only in our most vulnerable moments that we are able to find our true inner strength. Which seems extremely interesting to me and unlike any other graphic novel I had picked up in quite a while.

Title: Guinea Pigs

Author: Benacquista Tonino & Barral Nicolas (Illustrator)

Genre: Graphic Novel

Rating: 3

Review: So all I know about Guinea Pigs is that it is a graphic novel about the human trail phase of drug testing. So we are introduced to a new drug only referred to as M2C2T and the three candidates have been chosen to test the drug. The first is 44-year-old Daniel, who has a form of amnesia which means he is constantly losing jobs, and this is a quick and easy way for him to earn some cash, then there is 23-year-old Romain, who has his own personal problems but otherwise physically healthy and finally the 26-year-old Miss Parchiby, who tried to be an artist and failed.

Book Review

Title: SeQuence Unbound

Author: Lorraine L.M.L.

Genre: YA/Fantasy/Romance

Rating: 4

Review: So, this review is going to be short and to the point as I can’t discuss a lot of this book without giving away major spoilers for the series, but this is definitely the book where we get the answers we have wanted since book 1 and where the stakes are taken to completely new levels for all the characters, not just Lessi.

Book Review

Title: Ping Pong Dash Volume 1

Author: Shingo Honda

Genre: Manga

Rating: download

Review: So, all we get from the synopsis of this manga is: Haruku Tendo is the strongest Yankee, striking fear into all of Ibaraki Prefecture. He meets the beauty Sawa and then discovers ping pong, so I honestly had no idea what to expect from it, but I had never been drawn to sports-related anime or manga, so I didn’t have the highest of hopes going into it.
