Review:
For a nonfiction novel, this was actually a really enjoyable book to read. I found it really fascinating and really impressive to see everything Dan, the author, had to go through to become a secret service agent. It was also made clear to me that if you want to choose this career, you cannot take no for an answer and you really need to strive forward and work your ass off. That kind of dedication and ability to endure was very impressive and I have even more admiration for the men and women who are in the service after reading this book. If you’re looking for something new to read that is also incredibly entertaining and fascinating then check this one out.

Review:
Absolutely enjoyed this book! I had read the first two books back to back and had finished right before the third book came out. However, I somehow lost track and didn’t get a chance to pick up this one until now. And, damn, did I enjoy it! I had listened to all of them via audiobooks so I wanted to continue down that streak especially because the audiobooks are so enjoyable. The narrator did such a good job with all of the 1920s slang and created such distinctive voices to all of the characters. If you haven’t picked up this series then I would definitely recommend to do so via audiobook! 

Not only was the narration for this book done so well but I absolutely loved all of the different characters. They are so unique and despite the book having a relatively large cast of people, the author did a fantastic job with differentiating them so that they truly have their own voice. The plot is also incredibly intense with a ton of supernatural elements to it. I would also like to say that there is an attempted rape scene so proceed at your own risk. 

Overall, I’m so excited for the next book and am just dying to find out where or when this series will conclude!

Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Review:
I have been meaning to pick up this short graphic novel for a while now mainly because 1) many people have been recommending it and 2) it was for a few challenges. This time though, I read it because of my Read Harder challenge where I had to read a comic by an LGBTQIA creator. This was an incredibly fun read. 

My favorite would definitely have to be the character, Nimona, and all of her hidden pasts. I was intrigued from the beginning because she seemed to be very cautious in sharing what happened to her before. I also enjoyed the friendship that seemed to develop between her and Blackheart and loved the fact that good and evil aren’t so clearly defined. Blackheart is clearly seen as the villain in this book but in reality, you also see glimpses of him being kind and caring. 

Overall, while short and sweet, this graphic novel also dealt with some more serious issues. It was entertaining and I highly recommend it.
