I was SO PUMPED to see Rogue: Untouched as a book. I am a nerdy comic book fan who can't get enough, so obviously I was going to jump on the bandwagon and pick up a few Marvel superhero books when I get the chance.

Rogue: Untouched was a mysteriously epic novel that re-introduces Rogue - a very famous X-Men member who is also incredibly dangerous. She drains people she touches, so she's one to watch out for. I would argue she's one of the more underrated X-Men (at least in popular culture). I'm glad she got her own book to explore her more! She was always one of my personal faves.

This felt like a New Adult novel, but it still worked wonderfully. It had it's dark and gritty moments and it had it's goofy, smiling moments. I really enjoyed Alisa Kwitney's writing as well - it fit the narrative incredibly.

If you don't know much about Marvel or the X-Men then you may not totally enjoy it as a reader. It's still easy to jump into and you don't need the background knowledge, but I can easily see fans of Marvel and the X-Men getting more giddy over it.

Overall, this is a great fantasy/superhero read.

Four out of five stars.

Thank you to NetGalley and Aconyte for providing me a free copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

I bought this at a library sale years ago and it was the best reading experience I've had this year. This sits much more firmly in "chicklit" territory than romance since it's mostly about a 41 year old woman going through a rough transition for the sake of her child while the romance plot slowly simmers in the background.

This was much more diverse than I was expecting even though it's casually mentioned on the cover. It features an Iranian Jewish heroine, lesbian side characters, and a hero who has these moments of bi-curiosity. The heroine is 10 years older than the hero and says she has like 30 lbs on him too and I live. Beyond that though, there are intellectual, class, and lifestyle differences throughout and it makes the small town this is set in feel so pleasant, a place you'd want to live.

The hero / heroine felt like they were specifically written to my taste because I loved them both so much. Mack is a sweet and aimless army vet who's figuring his life out with the aide of stolen poetry books and the occasional brawl. Zoe is an uptight, multilingual, intellectual journalist who reads trashy romance novels, likes rough sex and is working on learning how to go with the flow. And they're perfect for each other in this moment. Loved them both, love them together.

This graphic novel is part of the Minx collection, which is a group of graphic novels that are supposedly all featuring strong female characters ... or something like that. I usually find them pretty mediocre - they're not especially bad, but they are rather bland and I find the characters stereotypical. The only one of the Minx books I really liked a lot was called The Regifters - it's about martial arts, and was a lot more exciting than the others.
