As some of you know, I read pretty much everything. I read Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Romance, Contemporary, Erotica, Poetry, Historical, Mystery, and sometimes even a little Horror. (Though it is rare.)

I will be posting a comic book or graphic novel review every Thursday so make sure you keep an eye out for them! (Maybe m
