Recaps

Recaps are something I started up by accident by reviewing a couple books, but found I really enjoy doing. Fueled by nostalgia, I go through series I loved as a kid, analyzing installments and commenting on what I loved then, and more importantly, what I love now. I find it’s a completely new experience going through these series as an adult.

I’m currently making my way through three different series. Although I try to jump around to keep things fresh for visitors and for myself, I may get excited about a series and publish several entries in a row about one series. It does not mean I’m more committed to that series than to the others, but that rather, it has my interest at that moment.

I encourage visitor interaction. Comment with your thoughts and questions. I’d love to discuss these 20-plus-year-old series with you! Also feel free to make requests. I’ve covered books simply because a visitor asked me to do that one next.

It goes without saying, but spoilers are all through these recaps. Tread with caution.
