Review: I’m Judging You by Luvvie Ajayi

Review: I’m Judging You by Luvvie Ajayi

Here is where I dole out shade, side-eye, and basic-but-necessary advice for the needy – the logic-deficient who consistently come up short in this new world order of 140-character opinions, Facebook beefs, Instagram groupies, and pop culture idolization, i.e., The waste land, where common sense has tragically become the rarest… Read more »

Review: Zarsthor’s Bane (Witch World #11: High Hallack Cycle #4) by Andre Norton  *spoilers*

Review: Zarsthor’s Bane (Witch World #11: High Hallack Cycle #4) by Andre Norton *spoilers*

Bane: [beyn] noun 1. death; destruction; ruin. 2. Obsolete. that which causes death or destroys life I love this book. It’s weird and dreamy and at some points really hard to understand (and follow). I’ve read Zarsthor’s Bane many, many times now. I can honestly say that I feel that… Read more »

Review: Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

Review: Once and Again (Petal, Georgia #1) by Lauren Dane

Gosh. I really didn’t care for this one at all. 🙁 And that makes me rather sad. I mean, I read a lot of Lauren Dane. But the Chase Brothers series and the Petal, Georgia spin off aren’t…working for me. At all. So. Once and Again. Lily and Nathan grew… Read more »

Review: The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers #1) by Becky Chambers

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is one of the best group reads I’ve had all year! I truly enjoyed this read – even though I didn’t expect to at first. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is a…difficult book to categorize. When I’ve tried to… Read more »

Review: Blood Song (Blood Singer #1) by Cat Adams *spoilers*

I received my copy of Blood Song in December 2013 as a Hogsfather’s Day gift. This means that Blood Song qualifies for my The Mt. TBR Struggle is Real challenge! So. Blood Song. I didn’t enjoy Blood Song very much. But there were some rather nice parts. My biggest issues… Read more »

Review: Best Man for the Bridesmaid (The DeFiore Brothers #2) by Jennifer Faye

Review: Best Man for the Bridesmaid (The DeFiore Brothers #2) by Jennifer Faye

Meh. Best Man for the Bridesmaid is a perfectly fine book. I was just bored or rolling my eyes or bored while rolling my eyes. Best Man for the Bridesmaid isn’t a silly book, per se. It’s just…has silly (but not funny) moments that sorta made me want to cringe…. Read more »

Review: Expecting the Earl’s Baby (Summer Weddings #1) by Jessica Gilmore

Review: Expecting the Earl’s Baby (Summer Weddings #1) by Jessica Gilmore

Three “meh” stars I picked up Expecting the Earl’s Baby randomly at my most recent library trip. I haven’t read a lot of HQNs lately so I thought I’d grab a few to try again. Expecting the Earl’s Baby is…rather sweet. There is no on page sex in this not-quite-secret… Read more »
