Book Baubles: Wizarding Edition

Khairete! This is long overdue, as the semester has been a battle! Mikaius here, victoriously marching in with games, fresh booty from the War of Sales (not to be mistaken for the War of Sails, which I lost miserably)! Yer a wizard e’rybody!

Book Baubles: Carter Edition

Fairy tales are best to read on days when the sun is bright outside, and there are kids playing on the green grass. The fairy tales from Angela Carter‘s the Bloody Chamber are better read in the dusk and twilight, and best in the middle of the night. Try not to listen too closely to that […]

Book Baubles: of the Dead Edition

Starting with an anti-recommendation, a condemnation. Do not watch the World War Z movie, it is a sham and it is terrible. It is not a good adaption of the source material, it is not a good horror or action movie, and it is not even a good movie. I love Brad Pitt, I love […]

Book Baubles: John Green Edition

Spring has finally shown her face in Toronto! Of course, we had a little snow last Saturday, but that didn’t stop people from stepping out and enjoying what little sun we had – I think I even saw a good number of people wearing shorts. You do you, Toronto. You do you. But if I […]

Book Baubles: Coraline Edition

I’m really loving all the different Coraline-themed things that can be found out there! It was almost a little too hard to narrow down, but here are my three favourites! 1. A graphic novel of the story, if you can’t get enough of the movie and/or the book. I’d say 4 1/2 stars means it’s a pretty good edition. […]

Book Baubles: Star Wars Video Games Edition

Khairete! Mikaius again, bringing you the best Star Wars games of my youth! Star Wars was my entire childhood. I wasn’t into Star Trek then, I didn’t find Doctor Who until I was 18, and Middle-Earth was a second-hand love. That I grew up in the 90’s meant that I could combine my favourite things so […]

Book Baubles: Graecian Edition

Khaírete (greetings!), Mikaius bringing you today’s Book Baubles. Considering the theme of this week’s Literature Monday, I wasn’t entirely sure how to do Book Baubles today. I could make a bunch of stuffy suggestions and condemnations about philosophy, or I could tell you to go watch Brad Pitt in sexy leather armour. I’m going with the […]

Book Baubles: GRRM Edition

For this week’s Book Baubles, the focus is George RR “Evil Santa” Martin. As his works love getting into detail and describing things overlong, it’s only fitting that detailed works represent him in today’s Book Baubles. Let’s get to it! (1) Fevre Dream, by George R.R. Martin If you wanted the full story, here’s your […]
