YALLWEST is about to officially open its doors to all the crazed bookworms out there in Santa Monica! There’s nothing more titillating than being able to assist this amazing convention AND visit LOS ANGELES for the FIRST TIME EVER!!! But this wouldn’t an adventure if we didn’t share this with everyone! As part of the YALLWEST 2016 event, we’re going to launch a 5 chapters mini-series right here on our blog giving an assessment of all the formidable things we’ve seen, smelt and heard!

Mortom by Erik Therme

2s

“But I got no reason to talk. Everybody’s got their own quirks and secrets. The smaller the town, the harder it is to keep things private. You’d think it’d be easier, but it ain’t.”

— Erik Therme, Mortom

     We’ve all dreamed of receiving an outrageous amount of money deposited into our accounts or an empire being dropped on you, leaving you the sole beneficiary. Wouldn’t that put a smile on absolutely anyone? Well Craig Moore, who has recently committed suicide, leaves behind “an empty bank account and a run-down house” for Andy Crowl, his cousin. Not exactly the greatest parting gift, but things get quite fishy when your dear cousin wasn’t exactly… close to you. Upon arriving in the small town where Craig lived, Mortom, Andy and his sister are catapulted into a suspicious and thrilling adventure. The discovery of a clue that might untangle the very mysteries that embellish the house brings relationships to the very brink of extinction, minds on the verge of eruption and chaos in the immediate proximity. Seeking answers to questions, Andy and his sister Kate explore well-kept secrets and Craig’s history until this very dead man’s game delivers the unexpected. Continue reading

Archie Vol.1 : THE NEW RIVERDALE

MY RATING: ★★

Well, well, well, what do we have here? A sexy modern version of Archie ? YES. 

archie

   In this volume, we follow around Archie and his friends right after his break-up with Becky, THE couple of their school! I gave this volume a straight 4 stars because it reads so easily. The reboot was totally worth it. I’ve missed this teenager vibe in the comics nowadays. Reviving this comic figure with 2016 fashion and lifestyle is one of the most beautiful idea ever!

The Rose Society by Marie Lu {Review + Readalong}

MY RATING : ★★★★★

“Fear motivates, more than love or ambition or joy. Fear is more powerful than anything else in the world. I have spent so long yearning for things—for love, for acceptance—that I do not really need.”
Marie Lu, The Rose Society

Fight Club 2 by Chuck Palahniuk

4

“Ideas are real. We are not.”

— Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club 2

       Wait. What? Fight Club 2? II? As in T-W-O? When did that happen? Where was I? What was I doing? Don’t worry, buddy! You might not be the only one! Who else would’ve imagined that the classic masterpiece that is Fight Club would ever get a sequel in our lifetime? Chuck Palahniuk did. But this isn’t a novel. And it isn’t a movie either. Mr. Palahniuk wanted to explore new territories and bring his creative genes to the comic world. You heard me right. What we’ve got here are 10 comic issues, released at an almost monthly frequency, and all written by Chuck Palahniuk and illustrated by Cameron Stewart. When I first heard of the series, I jumped on the opportunity to collect every single issue and not wait one moment for the collected edition. Diving into each issue every month was fun at first, but the real problem that presented itself is how easily you could miss elements and forget others. Rereading the issues in one shot was the only key remedy to the situation, and if I’ve learned anything, it’s the best way to enjoy Fight Club 2. Continue reading

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline

MY RATING : ★★★★★

 

“Virtual sex, no matter how realistic, was really nothing but glorified, computer-assisted masturbation.”
― Ernest Cline

It’s 2044, the Earth is slowly collapsing, some humans are living in awful conditions while other enjoy fancy lifestyle as the gap between social classes keeps ripping off. But one thing everyone has in common : at the end of the day, everyone is logged in and ready to enter the OASIS
