January was a great reading month for me, if not by quality then definitely quantity. I read a total of 18 books which is aesome because my reading goal for the year is 100 books. Of course, a few of them were graphic novels but they do count as a books so, here we go! (In reverse order)


The Castoffs Volume 1 : It’s Mage against the Machine! Magic vs technology in Roar’s newest graphic novel. When three apprentice mages are sent to help a neighboring guild, they reignite a decades-old war with a robot army that has destroyed the world.

Authors : M.K. Reed, Brian Smith, Molly Ostertag
