The Sleeper and the Spindle, the review

I just read The Sleeper and the Spindle [The Book Depository] and it was glorious. I also purchased the audiobook on Audible and combining the two was the best thing ever!

This is a masterpiece by Neil Gaiman. This is a new fairy tale. I’m sure that just reading it is a pleasure. However, combining the book and the audiobook is completely perfect. The audio effects are amazing. I think that the book earns a new insight when combined with all the sounds.

How to cover your books and comic books like a pro!

Today I want to share with you how to cover your books and comic books like a pro. I’ve been putting clear covers on my trades and books to keeping them safe since times immemorial. Even my mother has used me as the official librarian of the family: when I go back home I know I’ll be putting covers on books!

Why do I cover my books and comic books? I want to make sure that the paper covers are protected. Most paperbacks and trades can be damaged very quickly. Using clear covers allows me to keep them safe and to enjoy the covers in all their glory.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time Review

I finished The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time [The Book Depository] in two days. The books is brilliant: you enter into an Autistic kid’s mind and how he navigates and sees the world around himself. Christopher is a fifteen-year-old kid with autism. He lives with his dad. One day, when he takes a night walk, he discovers that someone has murdered the neighbor’s dog. And so, he decides to investigate who killed him.

This book is a breathtaking adventure where you discover the ins and outs of an autistic mind. And you do that from two points of view; Christopher’s and your own. You get involved in his world, and you end up questioning yourself how many different brains and ways of taking the world are out there.

The Martian Review; or how to grow your potatoes on Mars

So, I finally read The Martian (The Book Depository). Please notice that I haven’t seen the movie. So, all the information here is about this brilliant book. It was capable of getting me hooked on a guy growing potatoes on Mars.

I’ve never been so hooked on a science fiction book before. The technical stuff didn’t seem unbearable, but necessary since I wanted to know what was going on Mars. I found the reading pace very fast, highly entertaining and smart. This came as a shock since I expected something else.

FairyLoot Unboxing February 2017

Yay! I made another unboxing! The FairyLoot unboxing February 2017 was super fun. First, because I got the box in record time (it was sent on Friday, and I got it on Saturday); and, second, because the contents are amazing! If you’re a bookworm obsessed with fantasy and science fiction, this box is an excellent idea. Plus, it has something called reading buddies. You get a card with a code. Someone else will get the same code. You post a picture, unboxing video or whatever on your social media, use your code and find your buddy! So, I hope that my potential future partner is out there and is as crazy as I am. Please, post something on your social media so I can find you!

This post (and the video) contain tons of spoilers. Boxes are still on their way for many people, so if you’re waiting for yours and don’t want to be spoiled, I recommend you to stop reading here. And, of course, stay away from the video. If you aren’t a subscriber or you don’t mind spoilers, keep on reading and discover the treasure!

Rivers of London Review

books, bookish reviews, reviews, depepi, depepi.com

Rivers of London is an amazing ride. Today I’m going to review this fantastic book. Keep in mind that I love Sherlock Holmes, fantasy and science fiction. So, there’s no surprise here why I might love Rivers of London so much. Rivers of London was titled Midnight Riot in the US.

The hero of the book is Peter Grant, a young countable from the Metropolitan Police. He has to investigate a crime, and the primary witness is a ghost. He works along with his superior Inspector Nightingale, who is a wizard.

The Sword of Shannara, an epic fantasy tale

books, bookish reviews, reviews, depepi, depepi.com

The Sword of Shannara is an epic fantasy tale that you will either love or hate. I’m a Lord of the Rings fan, and it seems that this novel is a tribute to it. Despite this, there are mixed feelings about the Shannara Chronicles out there. Some people love it, but others hate it. I belong to the group who finds it fascinating. It’s not exactly like LOTR, although you can see many similar things along the way. The world-building is nice, the characters are believable, and the story has some surprises by the end of the book.

But it has a downfall: there’s only a female character having something to say, and she’s a damsel in distress. Despite this, the story is worth it. So, I’ll be keeping my plan of reading all the Shannara Chronicles little by little.

After The Gospel of Loki: Runemarks

I lost count on how many times I’ve read The Gospel of Loki. Now, I plan to re-read it after I finish Runemarks. If you haven’t got your hands on these books, I recommend you to do it soon. The Gospel of Loki is one of my favorite books. It’s funny, witty and it makes you love Loki regardless of all his tricks and misbehaviors. Runemarks seems to be a great read as well. However, I wasn’t expecting the book’s size! (It’s going to be a challenge to put these two books together on a shelf!)

If you’ve been following this blog, you already know that Loki is one of my favorite characters. And so, I feel the need to read all things Loki. When I first read The Gospel of Loki I was delighted: Joanne M. Harris has captured the trickster in all his glory. Thus, there’s no surprise here I will read Runemarks too.

Nerdy Bookworm Box November 2016 Unboxing



Yay! The Nerdy Bookworm Box November 2016 unboxing is here at last! Since I was visiting my parents, I couldn’t unbox this beautiful treasure. When I landed, the first thing I did was to open the box! I must say that this subscription box is one of the best out there. The jewel in the box is the book, of course. However, there are many other goodies that you’re going to love if you subscribe: a scented candle, geeky treats, and digital extras.

The book in the box was Moon Chosen by P.C. Cast, the first book of a fantasy series where animals accompany humans when darkness comes. The box also contains a Magizoology candle that celebrates J.K. Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
