Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card 1 by CLAMP

Much of the original CLAMP touch is evident in this sequel to the original Cardcaptor Sakura series; seeing the characters again was a true joy. But this first volume was light on plot and centered more on bringing the characters back to Sakura’s sphere of influence in little vignettes. 339 more words

Voltron Legendary Defender Vol. 2: The Pilgrimage by Tim Hedrick, Mitch Iverson, Jung Gwan, Rubine

This story nicely hits a sweet spot of its target audience – grade school kids looking for a bit of mindless adventure and some humor. While definitely not on the same level as e.g., Avatar, it’s a fun little romp in space and original storyline not in the series that never takes itself too seriously. 254 more words

Disney's The Princess and The Frog Manga by Nao Hidaka

This is a manga version of Disney’s The Princess And The Frog and it follows the animated movie closely. We get some nice discussions from the animators that give a bit more depth to the story as well as some history, which was definitely a plus. 365 more words


Dreamtreader Trilogy // by Wayne Thomas Batson

  • War for the Waking World

I didn’t realize until I got these books from the library that they are published by Thomas Nelson (Christian publishing house), so I wasn’t initially expecting the strong religious message in these books.  521 more words

Thornhill // by Pam Smy

I saw this book recommended somewhere or other and thought the formatting looked quite intriguing.  This story follows two timelines.  Mary’s story is set in 1982, while Ella’s is set in the present (2017).  1,009 more words
