Hey everyone! So, I have created another new feature for this blog and it's called "Analyzing Sonic the Hedgehog Comics!"
So, you are probably wondering: "Why in the world are you talking about Sonic the Hedgehog here? This is a book blog, not a video game blog!"
Well, this was something that I wanted to do for awhile now since I've read a lot of Sonic the Hedgehog comic books and I always found the history behind the Sonic the Hedgehog comic books to be the most fascinating (and the most controversial) thing to ever come out of the world of comic books. And also, I tend to review comic books on this blog, so that was one of the reasons why I wanted to talk about this series on this blog.
Another reason was that I was trying to figure out what would be the best place to talk about the Sonic the Hedgehog comics. At first, I was thinking about making videos about my deep thoughts on each issue of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic books on my YouTube channel. But since I dedicated my YouTube channel to talking about mostly movies, TV shows and video games, I felt that it would be better to express my thoughts on these comic books on my book blog.
And so, the new series "Analyzing Sonic the Hedgehog Comics" has started and I have a feeling that this will be a long running series since there are SO MANY comic books of everybody's favorite blue blur!
So, here's how the series will work. I will review each issue of whatever Sonic the Hedgehog comic book I picked up, whether it's from the Archie Comics, the IDW Comics and the Fleetway Comics (if they ever get distributed internationally) and I will analyze each scene in the comic and give out my thoughts on the issue as a whole. Then, I will rate each issue by this special rating system that I had created:
WAY PAST COOL: This is the highest rating and it basically means that the issue and the characters were very well written and I was into the story.
HUH...NO PROBLEM: This is pretty much an average rating. The story was okay and the characters were tolerable enough where I don't outright hate them.
THAT'S NO GOOD!: This is the lowest rating and it basically means that the story was terrible and the characters were written terribly.
Also, I'm hoping to do this feature every week, so expect to find a new review of an issue drop any time of the week.
So, that's what this feature is all about! If you are a huge fan of the Sonic the Hedgehog comic books and you want to see my opinions on them, then check this series out!

Hey everyone! So, I don't normally do posts about me being an affiliate of any website because I tend to jump around various affiliates from time to time and it's hard to see which affiliate that I'm going to be with in the long haul. But, I have decided to do a post about the most recent affiliate I just joined because I feel like I will be staying with this website in the long haul. So, here we go!
So, before I get into what book site I have become an affiliate of, let's talk about what's going on in the real world right now. So, you all know that we are in the middle of a pandemic and because of this, businesses are starting to suffer. Some of the businesses that are being affected by the pandemic are bookstores, especially the small and independent bookstores.
Not only that, but many small and independent bookstores have to struggle with competing with giants like Amazon to make a living. So, what's a good way to help out independent and small bookstores that are struggling in this current environment? Simple!
BECOME A BOOKSHOP AFFILIATE!
What is Bookshop, you ask? Well, Bookshop is an online bookselling service that supports local bookshops, including indie bookstores. So, if you pick a specific book store or independent bookstore that uses bookshops to deal with their online orders, than that specific bookstore will get all of the profits from your purchase. However, if you don't pick a specific bookstore and order from the Bookshop website, then 10% of every sale will be processed into a pool where the earnings are divided up and given to independent bookstores. So, no matter how you order a book from Bookshop, you will still be supporting an independent bookstore. You can also get some discounts when you are purchasing books through Bookshop!

Stacking The Shelves is a book meme created by Reading Reality and it is about sharing books that you are adding to your shelves, whether it's physical or virtual. This means including books that you bought from the store or online, books you borrowed from friends or from the library, books you've reviewed, gifts and ebooks!
Hey everyone! So, 2022 is starting out pretty well for me. I'm actually getting better prepared for my YouTube videos than last year and I've bought lots of awesome books in the last few weeks. Also, I'm back to posting up photos everyday on my Instagram account, so check out my Instagram account for more book photos!
