What is so special about the MCU?

Let’s roll back the clock ten years ago, it’s 2008, and Iron Man was coming around to theaters. No one outside of Kevin Feige’s inner circle truly knew what he was planning or even if they did no one would have thought he would succeed. He has been spending the last decade orchestrating the production of comic book movies all that share the same universe. This connection has genuinely led to wonderful crossovers like The Avengers films or even a mini Avengers film like Captain America: Civil War...

The Importance of the Kindle

I remember when I got my first Kindle way back in 2008, it was a clunky wedge-shaped device, but I was excited to get my hands on my very first e-reader. Though by no stretch of the imagination was the Kindle the first e-reader, at the time the devices were an extremely niche and expensive. In fact, shortly before the launch of the product, I remember listening to a technology podcast, and one of the hosts was talking about the sheer uselessness of e-readers in general.

Monster Hunter International

Going through my Audible library I saw a series that I enjoyed, Monster Hunter, and I saw that there was a new entry Monster Hunter Siege. I quickly added the new book to my library, but I did not want to start it right away since it had been so long since I had read any of the books. So now that I held a new entry in the series, I went to the Audible app on my phone and downloaded Monster Hunter International so I could once more begin my journey in the Monster Hunter series...

White Sand Vol. 2

White Sand Vol.1 was the first installment of Brandon Sanderson’s first foray into graphic novels, and it blew me away; from the story to the artwork it was a stunning beginning to a truly epic tale. The second installment begins right where the first one left off with Kenton flying away from Duchess Khrissalla, so he could try and wrap his head around the fate of his diem. Of course, the Duchess is furious with the young leader of the Sand Masters because he hid who he was from them...
