  • “The Rest of Us Just Live Here” Is a Story for the Rest of Us

    Have you ever wondered what it was like to attend Hogwarts and not be Harry Potter? You’re just trying to go to class and learn magic and not think about the fact that students are randomly getting Petrified, because you’re only twelve or whatever and it’s clearly not your responsibility to figure out what’s going […]


  • “Zeroes”: Not Your Average Superhero Story

    Every power has a price. So says the cover of Zeroes, the combined effort of authors Scott Westerfeld, Margo Lanagan, and Deborah Biancotti. Zeroes tells the story of a group of six teenagers with special powers – but don’t call them heroes, because they’re not.

  • Pottermore Revamps Its Design and Loses Some of Its Magic

I only starred three titles, and one of those was Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. I’ll […]



  • “Mad About the Hatter” Is a Quick, Fun Read
