Dorothy Parker Drank Here (2000)
4.2 of 5 Votes: 1
Kat's pick for the week of 4/5/15.Kat says: It isn't necessary to read Meister's first Dorothy Parker book (Farewell, Dorothy Parker) before this. In fact, you might want to read this one first because A) it's kind of a prequel, and B) it's better. The ghost of Dorothy Parker manages to disarm th...
Bettyville: A Memoir (2000)
4.12 of 5 Votes: 1
This book really spoke to me on several levels. The author writes about caring for his 91 year old mother in his hometown of Paris, Missouri. Hodgman puts behind him his drug addiction, his New York lifestyle (although he maintains his NY sense of humor), and his job loss to reconcile his love fo...

Silver Bastard (2000)

I wasn't sure after reading the prologue if I would like this book, don't get me wrong Joanna Wylde has produced, by far, the best MC series I have ever read. My problem is the age of the Heroine at the start of the book, I'm sure I am not the only one; However, I loved this book, just as I have ...
My Favorite Things (2014)
4.18 of 5 Votes: 4
My impressions are a bit different, perhaps, since I haven't read any other Kalman to compare. Many other reviewers seem to be comparing this to her other books. This offers a creative way to document an exhibit, and is generally visually appealing. It would be interesting for someone to do this ...
Batgirl, Vol. 5: Deadline (2014)
3.86 of 5 Votes: 2
For the most part, I really enjoyed this Batgirl novel! I absolutely loved the opening comic, where Gotham was the exact opposite of what it always has been in Bat universe comics. The artwork and the writing were really effective in evoking a feeling of a marked contrast with how Gotham usually ...
Robot, Go Bot!: A Comic Reader (2013)
3.58 of 5 Votes: 5
The basic story arc was good enough, that a girl bosses her robot around until the robot doesn't want to play any more, with the girl learning to act better. However, the book is billed as an Early Reader book, but since every single word (evidently) must rhyme with "bot", it gets a little confus...
Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor (2014)
4.6 of 5 Votes: 3
The book has an amazing format and style, making you feel as if you are actually holding one of Barry's composition notebooks in your hands. But ultimately, it was not for me. In another life, I would have the energy to try these notebook exercises and to enjoy what she was offering more complete...
Curvy, Crazy, and Confused (Plush Daisies: BBW Romance) (2000)
3.48 of 5 Votes: 3
I received this book in an ARC set entitled "Crazy About Curves" in exchange for an honest review. This was a quick read that I enjoyed with what seemed to be a never ending story. Instead if ending when the Hero and Heroine realize they are in love or getting married it continues into their ma...
Zen Pencils: Cartoon Quotes from Inspirational Folks (2014)
4.7 of 5 Votes: 2
I become an utter fan of Zen Pencils fairly early in the websites evolution and am an avid follower of Gavin's work. For the past couple of years, his cartoon posters have become a de facto gift in a friend circle and it was a no brainer that I would buy the book. It is a great compilation of awe...

Beautiful story about love, how we see life, how our past experiences affect future relationships, and about regret. Also about communications, and the speed at which we live not just life, but also the speed at which our relationships develop and flourish. In this case, the was mostly letters, s...
Secret Avengers Volume 1: Let's Have a Problem (2014)
4.03 of 5 Votes: 3
The most important thing I can say about this book is "Thank God the interior art is different from the cover art!"If you combine the hip title "Let's have a problem" with the Artwork, you have a book that seemed like it did not take itself seriously enough for my time. However, the story continu...
Un thé pour Yumiko (2014)
3.79 of 5 Votes: 1
After winning this book in a giveaway, I was quite excited to begin reading it since I would have a chance to delve deeper into my Japanese roots through reading. One of the reasons why I loved this book is because it truly depicted the beauty of the Japanese culture, from the ceremonies of death...

3.83 of 5 Votes: 2
X is sick and tired of being at the end of the alphabet and never having any cool words to associate to. He convinces some of the other letters to support him in changing to a new alphabet, before X realizes the alphabet is great just the way it is. This book is very cute and is a good take on ho...
