Sundown Rundown – June 2018

ezgif.com-crop

Good evening, book clan! It’s dusk. The fireflies are peeking out. The sky looks like it’s on fire. And here we are.

I hope June has been a beautiful sun-shiny month for you. Summer is in full swing.

I didn’t get as much reading done as I wanted to. I had a few folks visiting me this month and work always plays a part. It was a great visit and is always the best part of my summer.

Anywho, this is the Sundown Rundown where I wrap up everything I’ve read this month. You also get a chance to catch up on any reviews you might’ve missed. So relax, (or if you’re like me, munch on some chips) and take read. While I haven’t gotten as much done as I wanted, there have been a few good books.

Favorite book this month: The Flash: The Haunting of Barry Allen

This crossover really is tying me over until the new season returns. I love the scarlet speedster, he’s my hero. He’s funny and has so much heart. It’s always warming to see him and Oliver reunite. One of my favorite bromances ever.

Least favorite book this month:From the Earth to the Moon & Around the Moon

I just had so much trouble trying to get into this book. While it was fascinating, I didn’t connect with this book. I wanted more out of the characters. It felt like I was reading a textbook half the time.

There you go, the month of June. It feels like it’s gone by too fast. Welp, here come July.

Happy Reading!

Welcome to the Jungle (Arrow: A Generation of Vipers – A Book Review)

Arrow: A Generation of Vipers
Author: Clay Griffith & Susan Griffith
Published: 2017

On Goodreads

Green Arrow

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt

 

My name is Oliver Queen. I lived a life of privilege before I found myself trapped in a merciless jungle for five years. I learned to survive and returned to the real world. But until I help others survive too, I will remain in that jungle.

With Barry Allen still having trouble with his speedster powers and mysteriously blurring, Oliver Queen and his team are pulling out all the stops to help team Flash try and save the scarlet speedster. This means a rigorous training program and also going to an auction deep in Markovia with some of the world’s most dangerous people to bid on a machine that could open up a black hole and swallow everyone up.  With an old friend-become-enemy of Oliver’s and assassins and many other obstacles, Barry is barely hanging on and Oliver worries if he can actually save his friend.

 

This is part two of the crossover, the first book being The Flash: The Haunting of Barry Allen.  From rogues trying to pull one over on the Flash to a dangerous mission with a deadly auction, the story was a page turner. Like all crossovers with the Arrow/Flash universe, you get a taste of both of their worlds.

The conclusion of this amazing crossover goes from Central City to Star(ling) City, the home of Oliver Queen AKA the Arrow, the vigilante. From the upbeat to the broody, as I say. The tone-change wasn’t surprising, but enjoyable. It was a splendid switch-up that really shows how grave the situation with Barry is. And it does it from both men’s perspective, proving just how different and similar they are.

Arrow is well-known for its flashbacks and this book delivered. Much like the Flash’s book, there was a cameo that knocked me off my feet. If you love and miss Tommy Merlyn as much as me, then be excited! I was! I was overwhelmed. He was such a great character and I believe he left far too soon.

Tommy Merlyn

The focus on Oliver’s time on the island of Lian Yu was eye opening. Apart from the show, it’s more personal. In his mind, his thoughts, you realize it never leaves him. So, much like the novel before this one, it really got me hard just how much more in depth it is in the book versus the show. You really only get so much. You don’t truly get in their head, not like this. And this was so much more.

The story moved with time not on its side, though with Barry’s clock stopping and going it’s understandable. I really liked the fast pace of the story. It kept me engaged and biting at the bit. I couldn’t put this book down and I KNOW! I say that about quite a few books, but I mean it! I really love my DC heroes and these two—Green Arrow and Flash, so I can’t help but gush when they’re done so well. On paper and on the screen, they’re unbelievable.

I really do recommend this crossover duo. It’s entertaining and filled with nonstop action and humor with so much heart in its veins. From beginning to end, it was fun and left me feeling satisfied. I won’t say there’s a huge lesson and that this’ll go down in literary history, but it was wonderful in its show of family and friends. A great read.

 

Quotables:

“You know, communication is our friend. We talk a lot more in Central City than you guys in Star City.” (Barry to Oliver, p. 25)

“You may leave the jungle. But you will never leave the jungle.” (Yao Fei to Oliver, p. 188)

“If I had a nickel for every nut who tried to kill me, I could live in a castle.” (Felicity, p. 260)

Interview with the Author – James T. Logan

Hello, beautiful bookworms!

I hope you’re having a lovely summer. Lots of sun. Lots of fun. Lots of reading on the side.

I’m thrilled to have an opportunity to feature the author, T. James Logan here on The Scarlet Reader today. I’ve actually finished reading his novel recently, Night of the Hidden Fang, and you can find it here.

Night of the Hidden Fang

Goodreads

It was an interesting, action-packed, and very supernatural read. The witty and smart writing was really something for me.  Very original.


So, to start things off rather easy and fun, tell us a little about yourself. Any odd quirks?

TJL: I’ve been told I’m quirky, but really, I’m just me in my own skin. Later this year, I’m going to endeavor to become a ninja. I’ve joked about being one for years, as I find it fun to sneak up on people, but there are such things as real ninja schools, and I’m going to go for it and drag my family with it. We’re going to be a whole ninja family.

 

Q: What inspired you to want to write Night of the Hidden Fang?


TJL: A dream, actually. It started out as a dream about meeting three adolescent boys along a bike trail. The boys were naked and on the run from someone who was abusing them, their soccer coach, they said. That scene features prominently in the story.

Another inspiration is George Romero’s zombie films. I’ve always been a fan of those. They form a larger story of a world sliding inexorably into the zombie apocalypse, which has by now become somewhat of a trope. But then I got to thinking—what if the monsters of an apocalypse were not mindless, flesh-eating hordes of zombies, but cunning, calculating predators capable of hiding in plain sight? What if humans were driven off the apex of the food chain?

 

Q: Is there a special message that you hope your readers gather from your novel?

A: The central theme is human beings learning how to share this planet with not only each other but every other one of this Earth’s creatures. Some higher primates have been shown to have near human level intelligence. Dolphins give each other unique names, implying that they have some sort of culture. Neanderthals were likely as smart as humans, and they had culture which included art, personal adornment, and burial practices. Burial practices imply belief in an afterlife. We routinely kill each other over religion, resources, politics, and greed, and ignore the damage we do to the environment.  There have got to be better ways of doing things.

 

Q: I know for me, I write throughout the day, whenever I’m not at work. It’s pretty sporadic. How many hours a day do you dedicate to your writing?

TJL: When I’m in the groove, I try to make sure I get 2-4 hours a day. The last few months, I have not been able to manage that, thanks to starting to replace my bones with a terminator endoskeleton. I’ve got the start of a bionic leg now, and I’ve reached the point where I don’t have to be drugged to the gills with pain meds everyday. My brain has reawakened, and now I just have to get caught up after a few months of down time.

 

Q: Is there a special place you go to, to write?

TJL: My process seems to like variety. I have a rotating series of coffee shops where I like to sit and peck away. I’m mostly an introvert, but locking myself away in a dungeon for the length of time necessary to write a whole book tends to make me lonely. In a coffee shop, or sometimes a library, I can be alone, but with people around. Plus, I often find inspiration in the people around me. Humans are really wondrous creatures if you look closely enough.

 

Q: What advice would you give to aspiring writers who want to get published?

TJL: Keep practicing. Accept the fact that mastering your craft is a lifelong pursuit. FINISH your book/story/script, polish it to mirror brightness, and send it to someone who will pay you money. Write the next thing. Lather, rinse, repeat. You probably won’t sell the first few things, but eventually, you will start selling.

 

And for a couple of fun questions…

Q: What is your favorite book from childhood?

TJL: The book from childhood that I have the fondest memories of is The Hobbit. I loved it so much that I convinced my sixth grade teacher to read it to the whole class for our daily story time. I was so lucky to read it to my stepdaughter when she was eight.

 

Q: Since you’ve written a paranormal novel with a bit of a sci-fi twist, if you could pick, which supernatural creature would you be?

TJL: That’s the toughest question yet! Almost nobody wants to become a monster. It kind of depends on whose version of the monster we’re talking about, because authors put their own stamp on the old mythologies. Anne Rice’s vampires, yes. 30 Days of Night vampires, ugh, no. Mindless, savage, werewolves like The Wolf Man or American Werewolf in London, no. The werewolves in my novels, maybe. All the different kinds of “monsters,” including other things like ghosts, faeries, come with some sort of dreadful price. Ghosts have to be dead, obviously. Faeries in the ancient stories are not anybody a human would do well to meet.

 

Any last tid-bits you’d like to share with readers?

TJL: I’ll be launching a Kickstarter to fund publication of Book 2, Dawn of the Deadly Fang, in mid-July. The same cover designer and a fabulously skilled editor are going to help me out on the project. Your support would be a tremendous help. You can find me at www.tjameslogan.com.  If you’re in a Kickstarting mood, please go to kickstarter.com and look for Dawn of the Deadly Fang.

 

Thank you to Logan for this fantastic interview and for giving me a chance to read his book. He’s fantastic and quirky and down to earth, which has made it a pleasure to have him here.

Summer Reads – Nonfiction Edition

summer reads

Hello, precious bookworms,

June has been filled with a few book lists. Why? Because summer is upon us and that means days that you’ll spend lounging around, reading a great book, or many great books.

I’ve already gotten the YA Edition and the Fiction Edition up. I bring you my final list this month and that is the Nonfiction list.

Astrophysics for People in a Hurry
Author: Neil deGrasse Tyson

astrophysics

On the NYT Bestsellers List, get a fast lane knowledge on the cosmos, because who has time to contemplate them lately? I wish I had the time, especially now that it’s summer, the perfect time for looking at the stars. Questions you’ve always wondered about like, the nature of space and time and how does the universe fit within us, are answered and in a timely fashion. Whether on the bus on your way to work or on a lunch break, you’ll get your moment to think about the meaning of life or at least the search for planets. I don’t read much nonfiction. I much prefer the YA genre, but this book is on my list.

Amazon

Hillbilly Elegy
Author: J.D. Vance

Hillbilly Elegy

A powerful analysis of a culture in crisis and the disintegration of the demographic of white working-class Americans. I feel like this is a touchy subject, yet one that should, and is, discussed wonderfully in this book. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this bestseller. Vance’s story is personal and passionate from the POV of him and his family, starting in postwar America with his grandparents and moving forward through the change of America from there.

Amazon

BRAVE
Author: Rose McGowan

Brave

Rose McGowan, a powerful, feminist icon, was born into one cult and came of age in another, more prominent one—Hollywood. If you’ve kept up with this woman then you know she has no filter and that makes her powerful. She’s stood alongside women who have suffered from abuse and harassment. She stands with them and in this memoir, she shares her own experiences as only one actress who’s lived under constant exposure from the spotlight and over-sexualization. Here, she speaks up, no, she shouts and screams. This powerful book reaches out and encourages men and women to step up and be strong and be brave. Expect expletives, folks. This is another book on my list that I want to read. I am a big fan of Rose and ever since she’s comes forward and been loud and strong about her stance in Hollywood I’ve loved her even more.

Amazon

The Last Black Unicorn
Author: Tiffany Haddish

last black unicorn

A stand-up comedian, and breakout actress, Tiffany Haddish brings something brand new to memoir.  Edgy, hysterical and no holding back with her personal essays. From one of the poorest neighborhoods of South Central Los Angeles, she learned to survive by making people laugh. Through tough times, Tiffany kept her dream alive, something she found worth living for: comedy. These accounts of how she was brought up is unique and filled with laughs as well as showing how humble and grateful she is for being able to get her dream.

Amazon

#NeverAgain: A New Generation Draws the Line

Never again should kids be afraid to go to school These siblings step forward with this manifesto with strong voices, they’re saying, Enough.

Amazon

Encouraging for us to find what makes us sparkle, our ‘strange jewels’, in yourself. Whether embarking on a dream or infusing it with everyday life, this gem is sure to open you up in ways you didn’t think of.

Amazon

In Cold Blood
Author: Truman Capote

In Cold Blood

For those who love the true crime variety, Truman follows the story of two men who murdered the Clutter family. No motive. Almost no clues led to the killers. With incredible empathy and suspense, Truman follows the murder, investigation, trial and execution. This insight to American just and violence is shudder worthy.

Amazon

Blurring From the Future (The Flash: The Haunting of Barry Allen – A Book Review)

The Flash: The Haunting of Barry Allen
Author: Susan Griffith & Clay Grifffith
Published: 2016

On Goodreads

The Flash

My Rating: Full boltFull boltFull boltFull boltFull bolt

My name is Barry Allen and I am the fastest man alive. I solve my problems by running faster. Always faster…

Out in Central City, Barry Allen, the Flash, comes is shocked by an older and weathered and badly injured version of himself, the Flash. Before he can ask him anything, he’s gone.

Then Barry begins experiencing glitches with his powers and it couldn’t be at a worse time. Many of the Rogues such as the Pied Piper, Weather Wizard, and Peekaboo are wreaking havoc on the city. As it gets worse and team Flash struggles to figure out the villain’s endgame and how to help Barry, Barry calls in a good friend to help.

Oliver Queen—the Arrow.

Flash

Every once in a while I’ll review a branch-off novel of TV shows. I really enjoy my shows and some of the books are pretty dang good. I am a HUGE fan of the Flash. BIG. LIKE REALLY BIG! So, when I heard about this book I was squeeeing over the moon.

The season may be over until the fall, but this crossover will tide you over. It did for me. Humorous, witty, non-stop speed. A beautiful combination, that is. Some of the show’s classic rogues come together for a sneaky plan and it was very awesome. There was a part of me that kind of hoped to get a glimpse of Captain cold or Heatwave, but they were not around. *sad face*

Still, the story was fast and great, leaving me plenty enthralled and entertained with my hero and his smart and amazing friends. I loved that I couldn’t really predict anything. It was refreshing. There were so many moments that I was shocked, especially with one major cameo that made me a bit sappy. It’s somebody-if you’ve been watching the show-that you know.

I also missed HR; Tom Cavanagh is a-freaking-mazing with balancing multiple version of himself and great with the funny.

From the setting to the characters to the very heart of this hero, everything stayed to true to its tune and then some! There was a much deeper emotional pull, one that I don’t think you can get from the show. You’re in these characters hearts in a way that looks and words just can’t convey. I loved the chance to glimpse into their hearts and see just how in depth their feelings are.

This book was wonderfully canon and really adds to the Arrow/Flash Universe. If I’m correct, it actually takes place some time after season 2 but before Season 3Seeing Oliver Queen and company come to Barry’s aid really warms my heart. The bromance between the two gentleman heroes is among one of my utmost favorites. They’re great opposites with Barry being the goofy young brother figure and Oliver being the serious and rather broody older brother. The fact that they come through for each when its most important is just beautiful.

Barry and Oliver

I loved this novel. It was fun and really gave me that dose I needed of the Flash this summer. If you love superheroes, with and comedy, and that family feel-good, read this.

Quotables:

“I’m like a sexy Yoda. With me, there is no try, there is only do.” (Cisco, p. 102)

“There was no expiration date on grieving. It became a part of you, and you had to make room for it or you would forever feel it inside you, like and invader.” (Joe, p. 151)

“In this new world, even dead doesn’t mean dead anymore.” (John Diggle, p. 315)

Midnight Tease

Midnight Tease - Giphy

Hello hello, bookworms!!

It’s May, Justin Timberlake’s favorite month of the year, though I saw this and couldn’t stop laughing.

May

Also, I went and saw The Avengers: Infinity War. Don’t worry, you’ll get no spoilers from me. That’d be incredibly rude of me. The movie was EPIC and PHENOMENAL. Totally riveting from start to finish. My heart hasn’t beat that hard during a movie in a while. I think since Deepwater Horizon, which is also a-m-a-z-i-n-g. Now, I’m a DC Comics girl through and through (don’t you judge me), but I love Guardians of the Galaxy, so I went to see it. Worth watching. There’s a reason it made hundreds of millions on opening night. My emotions still feel like they got trampled beyond recognition.

Rocket

Now, it’s the midnight hour, which means this is the Midnight Tease, and we all know that I don’t know what sleep is. If you’re up this late then you need to go to bed. Nah, just kidding, but do check out this list because it’s a good bit of what I’m going to be reading and reviewing this month. See, May is warm and sunny and so I like to get started on my summer reads.

I know what you’re thinking. What the heck is with a summer reads list? Or just summer read books? Books are freaking books. It doesn’t matter when you read them. Not for me my lovelies. I find certain books more fulfilling and sweet and just better in the summer. So I’ll be getting some of that started.

Also, Rick Riordan’s Apollo Trials: The Burning Maze just came out. I’ll be getting to that probably next month and I can’t wait! I really enjoyed the first two. They’re fun and wild and hilarious. Who knew Apollo would make such a terrible human.

The Great Library

I’m super excited about this series, been dying to get it since the first one came out. I’m a major fan of Rachel Caine’s work. While I’ve only read Morganville Vampires so far, she’s superb and totally original. I do want to try the Weather Warden series sometime–I have an infatuation with weather and natural disasters. Anyway, I’m just ecstatic that I finally got the books, which brings me to my little story about them. Back in December, on the 21st, I received a package. I wasn’t expecting anything and it wasn’t a present my mum had ordered. I even asked around online to my friends and sent out Snaps. I was so confused. Then, opening it, I majorly squeed, and loudly. I’d received the first three books of this series. To this day, I still have no idea who sent them to me. Nobody fessed up at all and I imagine they would have. I am unbelievably grateful for the wonderful gift. Books hold a special place in my heart. Almost a higher place than boys LOL. And what’s so cool about this series is how books really have some power behind them. I can’t wait to review them. And again, THANK YOU to whoever it was that sent me this series. I’m still in awe of it. It’s certainly one of the nicest things to happen to me.

If there’s one thing I can shared during this tease it’s that I’m okay with dog-earring a book. I know! I’m a monster! But here’s the catch. If and when I dog-ear, I don’t fold the whole page. That kind of thing is monstrous. I do

I do have an ARC review coming up this month as well and I look forward to sharing that with you all. Have a happy May!
