Transformers: Exodus by Alexander C. Irvine

I love Transformers, however, I don’t know everything there is to know about, and I haven’t seen every movie or every single series out there…yet. One thing I’ve, personally, never really known about is the great war for Cybertron. It’s mentioned plenty of times, but I’ve never gotten around to really looking into. So when I found this book I figured, why not? Publication: June 22nd 2010 Synopsis: For twenty-five years the colossal battle between Megatron and Optimus Prime has captivated Transformers fans around the world. Yet the full story of the conflict between the two most famous Transformers—everything that … Continue reading Transformers: Exodus by Alexander C. Irvine

2019 Reading Challenge (updated)

Guess what? I updated my 2019 GoodReads reading challenge.😅 I found out about this challenge late last year. I believe I did set a goal, but I either didn’t reach it cause of how late it was in the year, or I deleted it all together cause of how late it was in the year. Bottom line I didn’t finish it. So, 2019 comes along and I enter. With the start of a new year I’ll have tons of time to finish it. 365 days instead of 2 months worth, give or take. Originally it has started out as 15, … Continue reading 2019 Reading Challenge (updated)

A Twisted Tale: Part of Your World by Liz Braswell

Just cause Fairy tales are the best, and let’s be honest, we’re all probably a tiny bit curious as to what would have happened if Ursula had indeed won and Ariel had lost.

Five years after the (twisted) events of the film, Ariel is now the queen of Atlantica, and Ursula is running Eric’s kingdom on land.
