Comics & Graphic Novel, Humour

Fowl Language: Winging It by Brian Gordon

I have reviewed the previous book: Fowl Language: The Struggle Is Real and am a regular follower of the author on Instagram. I jumped at the chance of reviewing an advance copy of this latest collection, and my review is completely based on my own reading experience. It is different from just reading the comic strips because… Continue reading Fowl Language: Winging It by Brian Gordon

It is something that was born out of… Continue reading A Year of Creativity by Petra Hoeksema; Lidy Nooij; Miriam Catshoek; Bregje Konings

Mystery

In Rhino We Trust (A Jenny Willson Mystery #3) by Dave Butler

This was unlike any other fictional mystery book that I have read this year. There are so many facts and realities woven into the tale, it is easy to forget the main protagonists (at least) are not real. It is also the third of a series I had never heard of or read before and… Continue reading In Rhino We Trust (A Jenny Willson Mystery #3) by Dave Butler
