The Walking Dead, Vol. 1: Days Gone Bye
Reviewed by Villiana
I didn’t read in my life too many comics and I must admit that it was a really nice change. I love The Walking Dead tv series, and I've always wanted to check how looks original, and finally I did it. I love it. Fast action, really gre... More

The Road
Reviewed by Villiana
“People were always getting ready for tomorrow. I didn't believe in that. Tomorrow wasn't getting ready for them. It didn't even know they were there.” What can I say about "The Road"... was a long, sad, rather monotonous, and genera... More

Sapphique (Incarceron)

“He had wanted so hard to Escape, to find the stars. And all he had found was a new prison.” After reading "Incarceron", which was very interesting, I had to reach for the continuation. And I have to admit that the whole thing was co... More

Tomorrow, When the War Began
Reviewed by Villiana
I ran into this book completely by chance while searching for some interesting dystopian items for young people. I said "why not?" and added a whole series on the waiting list to read in the future, but absolutely never heard of this book, ... More

“Books are mirrors: you only see in them what you already have inside you.” Finally! I don’t remember from when I wanted to read this book and the moment finally come. Until now, I had the pleasure to read "Mist Trilogy" by the sam... More

The Time Machine

The Holy Bible: King James Version

I only read this book because I wanted to play the GBA game based on it. (Well, based on the movie, which I haven't seen.) I fully expected it to be terrible, but wow, it's sheer awfulness just blew me away. I don't think there is one or... More

Altered Carbon (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
Reviewed by The Flagship
Proving once again that judging a book by its cover almost always pays off, I picked up Altered Carbon for no other reason than the intriguing Da Vinci-esque anatomical sketch adorning the front page. Interestingly, I’ve never seen this v... More

Lady Chatterley's Lover (Bantam Classics)
