Supergirl, episode 2.15

10.6.17


"When I write I don't need a yellow sun, it's just me. Supergirl is what I can do. Kara is who I am."



Supergirl, episode 2.15


"This time, you're the only Superman we need."



Jak and the Wormhole

4.6.17


Heroes can be found in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps we all have it within us to do great things, but may simply lack the circumstances or the reason to be heroic.

Killjoys

3.6.17


Love it. It's not at all like Firefly, except that it's about people living and working in space. You know, normal stuff. But in space.

Not to mention a refreshing lack of drama.



The Three Little Sontarans

2.6.17


Brilliant. Exactly what I expected from a book called 'Time Lord Fairy Tales'.

The Twins in the Woods

1.6.17


I have a stack of fairy tales, Grimm's, Anderson's, various other collections. Haven't read all of them, some are very familiar, others just plain weird. So I don't know the origins of this one. Not Hansel and Gretel, not The Two Sisters.

No matter, it's a great story. Somewhere nice.

Cinderella and the Magic Box

31.5.17


I have never liked Cinderella (Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine being the exception), she doesn't do anything, things just happen to her. Until this one. I was a bit apprehensive at the beginning but it got very good very quickly.

Frozen Beauty

30.5.17


This one is also really good, really clever (as I'm suspecting they all will be). However, I was completely distracted by the idea of space travel normally taking centuries and arriving at your destination and waking up and everything could have changed.

The Garden of Statues

29.5.17


This book is beautiful, the contents intriguing; and this story, which could have been really obvious, was not.



'Where is she?' Tarmin yelled at the statue. 'What have you done with her?'

Of course, the statue did not reply.

The Dark Portal

27.5.17


Finished this a bit quickly. But there are two more! But I don't have them...

Reminded me a little of Redwall, not *just* because it was about mice, much more the way the mice (and other animals) were personified while retaining their animalistic traits and ways of life.
