The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B

Hey everyone, back again this week, and I was lucky enough to get my hand on this book from a close friend at the library. It is not normally the type of book I would read, but it is still a teen book, so I thought I would give it a go. Meet Batman, no not the real Batman, but a boy who suffers from OCD. He is only 14 years old, and will soon be turning 15, and he is madly in love with a girl from his support group. Her name is Robyn, but her superhero name is Robin, so that she matches with him. She is older than him by about 2 years, but that doesn't stop him from trying. Along with the other 'hero's' from his support group he is trying to get better little by little. Having Robin around makes him feel better, as does the support from his younger brother. Even his divorced parents aren't getting in his way. But his mother has problems of her own, and they are slowly starting to affect Batman. First, she is a hoarder, and she doesn't want anyone outside


Hey everyone, sorry about no post this week. I am really busy, and I didn't get a chance to read anything. Off to Wonderland today for some fun, maybe tomorrow I will try to read something for you!

Manga Reads

Hey everyone, today I want to talk about some books I have been reading lately. Surprise, surprise, they are manga's! I love reading them, as they are simple, comic book like stories that come in all different sorts. You can find them in Chapters (if you live in Canada) or maybe even book stores in other countries (I haven't traveled as much as I would like to, so I couldn't tell you). There is a lot of controversy over anime, and manga in the last couple of years, because often their fans bases are very large. Some people get weird over it, which isn't bad at all, and it is just another fan base. I love reading of all kind (even ebook, but you won't catch me using the kobo I bought unless authors leave me no choice), and even comic books are a great source of literature. The stories are sometimes even better, because you get to see what is really happening, like reading a TV show, if you know what I mean. And if the books are good enough for you, try the Anime.

Return to Labyrinth By Jim Hensons

Hey everyone! So lately I have had a bit of an obsession with the movie The Labyrinth with David Bowie, and I was shocked to find out that there was a 'sequel' of sorts, in the form of a graphic novel. I bought them all in excitement, and I really must say that I enjoyed reading them. There are only 4 volumes in the series, and it gives a new light on the original story. Thirteen years after Sara left the labyrinth by defeating Jareth, Toby, her younger brother, has finally grown up. He is a teenager, who is given everything he wants in life through... odd means... As it turns out, Jareth has been keeping an eye on his old friend, and has been sending goblins to cater to his every need, even if he doesn't know it. But Jareth has reasons for pampering Toby. The young boy doesn't know it yet, but Jareth is getting ready to 'retire' as the Goblin King, and needs someone to take his place. And Toby is the boy for the job. And, as anyone who has seen the movie

Embrace by Jessica Shirvington

Hello everyone! Today I thought I would write my review on Embrace, the first book in the "Violet Eden Chronicles" series. I love this series and even though this isn't the most interesting book in the whole series, it is pretty freaking good! The books are released quickly and the author is great at portraying her feelings through her characters, which I love. I have been a big fan of Ms. Shirvington for a while now. Meet Violet, who is about to turn 17. It isn't as happy a moment as she was hoping for, considering it marked the anniversary of her mothers death. And as it approaches, she begins having dreams where she is attacked, and her scars are very real when she wakes up. Not to mention the tattoo making its way up her arm. Her friend Lincon is trying to help her, but there is very little he can tell her, and he is withdrawing from her as a friend as time goes on. Still confused, Violet turns to a man named Phoenix she met at the club, who even though is d
