Growl Anthology Review: Legal Wolf’s Mate (Fabian Garoux #1) by Eve Langlais

Growl Anthology Review: Legal Wolf’s Mate (Fabian Garoux #1) by Eve Langlais

Legal Wolf’s Mate is part of the Growl anthology but it can be purchased as a standalone here. I was rather excited about Legal Wolf’s Mate: the blurb seemed right up my alley so its the only reason I read this anthology. I’ve not read a lot of Eve Langlais… Read more »

Review: Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata

Review: Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata

Dear Aaron was sweet and lovely, to be honest. Dear Aaron is written in email and messenger format for the majority of the book. And it got to be just a little annoying after some time. But I adored Aaron and I loved Ruby. While I really enjoyed Dear Aaron,… Read more »

Review: And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead by Brooke Bolander

Review: And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead by Brooke Bolander

Ok. So, this is the 2nd short I’ve read by Brooke Bolander and the 2nd short that I’ve adored. I *think* that I enjoyed “Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies” a little bit more than “And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead” – but only because “Talons” is… Read more »

Booze: Veil Pineapple Vodka

Booze: Veil Pineapple Vodka

My husband and I recently threw a very large BBQ. When buying alcohol for our BBQs, we always buy both regular and flavored vodkas. This time, our local liquor store only had 1 bottle of Pineapple Cîroc. Instead of leaving (for a better stocked store, we (well, I) allowed the… Read more »

Review: All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

Review: All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

I loved All Systems Red. The very first chapter let me know that I was really going to enjoy this ride. And I did. I COULD HAVE BECOME a mass murderer after I hacked my governor module, but then I realized I could access the combined feed of entertainment channels… Read more »

Review: A Nameless Witch by A. Lee Martinez

Review: A Nameless Witch by A. Lee Martinez

I found A Nameless Witch to be…cute. I liked the MC and I enjoyed the story but it did not pull me in or get me emotionally invested. I enjoyed the way the story turned some tropes upside down – especially the “witchly” tropes. The MC is an accursed witch…so… Read more »

Review: Behind the Throne (The Indranan War #1) by K.B. Wagers

I really enjoyed Behind the Throne but not for (all) my usual reasons. I was a little skeptical in the beginning – Haili IS a runaway princess and that’s trope-y from beginning to end – but this was a runaway hit for me. I like that Haili isn’t a push… Read more »

Review: She Wolf and Cub by Lilith Saintcrow

Review: She Wolf and Cub by Lilith Saintcrow

Even though I have now finished She Wolf and Cub, I’m still not sure how I feel about it. It felt like a lot of the book was set in an already established universe. As a reader, I was not given a map to this universe and thus I felt… Read more »
