River of No Return – Bee Ridgway

Sorry for the radio silence the past week, everyone; I’ve been doing things around town now that I’m home for the summer and haven’t been online very much lately. To make up for it, today I’m going to post a better (as in higher rated) review than I have been!

Bee Ridgway’s River of No Return came out in 2013 and I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for review, courtesy of Goodreads’ First Reads program. It was my very first ARC from Goodreads, so I was excited and jumped on it when it came in… and I loved it. It was a great experience that earned it a full five stars and I’ve been eagerly awaiting more in this universe since I finished it. (I’ll post my review of the prequel soon.)


Find an updated version of my original review below.

Free Comic Book Day


Good afternoon everyone!  It’s Free Comic Book Day today, so if your local shop is still open and you haven’t gone yet, you should definitely pay a visit. You can find which comics are being offered this year online. I’m heading out in costume to the big city for the day, because why not! (Yes, the above photo is me.)

In honour of the day, I’ll be doing a quick recommendation post for my favourite graphic novels. I’m mostly in a niche when it comes to comic reading, but here are a few I’ve really loved!

May the Fourth be with you

Welcome to leaf and page‘s first post, everyone. I hope you enjoy your stay and find something to like here. (And I hope that I keep this up.)

I have a confession to make: I started this blog partly for selfish reasons. Years ago, a friend of mine suggested I start a blog for my book reviews, and I considered it but never too seriously. From time to time, the idea would cross my mind to start blogging for real. But then the other day something happened: I got rejected from an advanced reader’s copy because I don’t post my reviews to a ‘legitimate’ outlet.

So, with that in mind I decided I’d finally follow up on those half-formed thoughts to start a blog, and here we are. Besides, it’s something I haven’t done in ages and having a place to write and share my thoughts is always nice.

In honour of today being a special day, my first review on the blog is going to be a repost of a review from Goodreads of Michael Reaves’ Star Wars novel, Coruscant Nights: Patterns of the Force, which I gave two stars. Find it below!
