Everafter: The Pandora Protocol

I’ve made no qualms about my love for Vertigo’s Fables. While I was sad when it ended, I was so happy when I heard that the series was going to continue. Thanks to the publisher and above the treeline for allowing me to read a digital copy in exchange for my honest review.

It’s Monday, What are you Reading?

Each Monday, The Book Date asks what we’re reading…  Please visit the site to link up your current list and hold yourself accountable. Also, you can visit some great blogs who are also doing this meme… It’s pretty awesome.

Last week, I worked on my work-life balance. And I was super happy with the results. I helped a family member at a doctor’s office by getting off of work a little early and even got a job offer with that (but it’s not what I’m currently looking for right now).

In the aftermath of the shootings at Pulse last year, the call came out on social media for the comic community to ‘do something.’ Love is Love represents what the comic community came up with. So many artists devoted their work to the project (and now Hoopla is giving a donation to anyone reading it via the app), and it came out amazingly.
