Ivy's Reviews

Ivy grew up very close to Santa Cruz and is a UC Santa Cruz graduate. She is the head of the Hardback section, History, and helps with Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Her voracious reading appetite can include anything from history, fiction, graphic novels, and anything in between.



Ms. Marvel by G. Willow Wilson

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of the original Ms. Marvel (Carol Danvers), but when someone new was set to take up the mantel, I was understandably nervous. Kamala Khan exceeded all expectations. She's funny, excitable, and every bit the awkward teenager you'd expect. You don't need to know the whole (or any of the) history to love Kamala and this volume.

Not My Father's Son by Alan Cumming

This memoir is chock-full of twists and turns as it chronicles his search of two distinct yet parallel mysteries that color his life. Mr. Cumming's voice is rich, distinctive, and you can't help but imagine it in a Scottish brogue. His openness is easy to relate to and incredibly refreshing from such a theatrical powerhouse.
