Lois Lane: Fallout

Title: Lois Lane: Fallout

Author: Gwenda Bond

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

 Fallout follows Lois Lane in, what you would call, another universe. Here she is a teenager and an army brat who has moved way too many times. Her father, General Sam Lane, has finally decided to stay in one place for awhile. Metropolis. Lois wants to fly low, fit in, stay quiet, and most importantly make a few friends. Of course her plan doesn’t quite workout, instead she runs into some trouble. 

I really liked this book. I especially liked Lois. And honestly, when I started reading this book, I didn’t know much about her. I just knew she worked with Superman and was a reporter. This book gave me a lot of insight on who she is and what she stands for. Books, for me, have always given me that. 

I also really enjoyed the plot. It was very fast-paced and made the book easier to read. 

What I didn’t like about this book was that Lois stayed the same through out the entire book. We learn about who she is, but not as much as I would have liked to learn. She’s so focused on everyone around her that she doesn’t pay attention to herself. I’m hoping that the next book goes a lot more deeper.

One last thing, I loved that Clark Kent wasn’t physically in the book. I liked that this book was about Lois, not about Superman’s love interest.

Felicity Smoak – Character Sketch 

I do not own this character or any characters mentioned in this sketch. 

Felicity is sitting at her kitchen table. She has a cup of coffee in one hand and the daily newspaper in the other. Her gray eyes flit across the words rapidly, eating them up like a jelly donut. She taps her fingers, which were painted a pale pink, on the side of the cup that she is holding up.
Her blonde hair, that reaches past her shoulders, is tied up and away from her face. Some parts of her hair, especially the roots, were a bit darker than the rest of the light and airy blonde. She liked this color on her, it was the complete opposite of who she used to be. Her hair used to be black. She used to wear deep purple lipstick and lots of eyeliner. This was back in college, but she had changed a lot since then. 

She has on a pair of black, thick rimmed glasses, which accentuated her light brown eyebrows along with her eyes. Her cheeks were brushed with some blush which matched her glossed lips. 

She always wore bright things because she didn’t want to go back to who she was in college. Today she was wearing a white top with black polka dots and a simple red skirt that ended a few inches above her knee. 

Felicity placed the cup back down and bit her thumb nail. She let the newspaper collapse onto the table, not believing what she had just read. She knew what things were like in some parts of Starling City, but sometimes it caught her by surprise. It also scared her because Oliver was out there every night, fighting the dangers of Starling City. Thankfully she lived in the better parts of the city, so she rarely sees the things that happen first hand. 

There was a knock at the door and Felicity jumped. She realized it was just the door, she calmed down and walked over to the door. She smoothed her hair down, hoping that it was Oliver. She opened the door and sighed in relief when she saw Oliver standing in front of. She instantly pulled him into a hug.

“Thank goodness you’re okay,” She pulled away and smiled up at him, “I missed you and your amazing abs.”

“My abs?” He said as he raised his eyebrows at her.

“Yes, uh…your abs. They’re great, I mean you basically never wear your shirt and I see your abs. Every. Single. Day. Just shirtless, all the time. It’s….it’s great because um they’re amazing and I think I should stop talking now.” She said as she rubbed the back of her neck with her hand. Her face was tinged red and she bit her lower lip. 

He laughed and the blush on her face faded. She smiled at him, she was glad that he was here. 

Howard Anthony Stark


Peggy and Howard both loved Steve Rogers, but in two completely different ways. Peggy loved Steve because he was a good man. Steve was willing to sacrifice his own life to save the life of others. She saw him for who he was and she loved who he was. Howard, in Agent Carter, said that Steve Rogers meant a lot to him too. Howard loves him too, but not in the friend way or in the I’m in love with you way. Howard loved him because Captain America was the greatest invention he had ever made. To Howard, Steve was just an experiment gone right. That’s why he was never able to get over him. That’s why Howard went on and on about Steve Rogers long after he was gone. He couldn’t get over the fact that his greatest achievement had died. Peggy on the other hand was able to move on. She was able to come to terms with Steve being gone and she was able to live with that. 

Buzzkill

Author: Beth Fantaskey (I love her name!!)

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

 I haven’t read mystery books in awhile and this was a great way to get back into it. 

In the book Millie Ostermeyer, the main character, just wants to sail through her last year in high school. Of course, that doesn’t happen. Instead she finds the dead body of the head football coach. And the prime suspect is her father. Millie has to clear her fathers name and find the real killer. 

As I read this book, I realized that this book wasn’t just a mystery book. This book included Millie’s relationship with her father, which wasn’t going well. Surprisingly a murder brought them closer together.

There was also some romance, which I loved, but it started taking away from the murder. At some points it started feeling like I was reading a romance novel and not a murder mystery. I feel that the book would’ve been so much better if more of the focus was on solving the mystery and not falling in love.
