Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Original Flash Fiction (3/3)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Original Flash Fiction (3/3)

Standard Deviant by Holly Schofield – Narrated by Cassandra Campbell – 2.5 stars “Standard Deviant” is rather long (for flash) with very little payoff. The majority of the story has the heroine hiding behind a car. She calls the car’s owner her boyfriend (but he’s not) but then says she… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Original Flash Fiction (2/3)

#TrainFightTuesday by Vanessa Torline – Narrated by Jamye Méri Grant with Cassandra de Cuir, Gabrielle de Cuir, John Allen Nelson, Molly Underwood, and Judy Young – 3.5 stars “#TrainFightTuesday” is…strange. It’s a hard one to read via audio, for sure. “#TrainFightTuesday” is written in Twitter (but called Patter) and it… Read more »

Review: Old Man’s War (Old Man’s War #1) by John Scalzi

Review: Old Man’s War (Old Man’s War #1) by John Scalzi

I’ve followed Scalzi’s blog for years and I quite like the man. I think this is why I find it ironic that I’ve never read any of his work – until now. In the space of two months my bookclub has read two books by Scalzi…and I’ve enjoyed both. I… Read more »

Review: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1) by N.K. Jemisin

Review: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1) by N.K. Jemisin

I purchased my copy of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms in Sept 2011. This means that The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms qualifies for my 2017 The Mt. TBR Struggle is Real! challenge at 5 years, 6 months. I think I’m still trying to parse my feelings toward my read of The Hundred… Read more »

Review: Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega #1) by Patricia Briggs

Review: Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega #1) by Patricia Briggs

So far I am LOVING the Alpha and Omega series! I love, love, LOVE Anna and I still like Charles. I do have to say that Charles’ father sound much more interesting that Charles right now…but I digress. The worldbuilding is pretty thorough but since it exists in an already… Read more »

Review: Here Kitty, Kitty (Magnus Pack #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Review: Here Kitty, Kitty (Magnus Pack #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Love it! Here, Kitty Kitty made me so happy! After spending quite some time being frustrated with book 2 (Go Fetch!), Here Kitty, Kitty more than makes up for the bullshit I dealt with. Here, Kitty Kitty was just pure fun. There is some type of plot it wasn’t as… Read more »

Anthology Review: Shifting Shadows – Alpha and Omega (Alpha and Omega #0.5) by Patricia Briggs

Anthology Review: Shifting Shadows – Alpha and Omega (Alpha and Omega #0.5) by Patricia Briggs

OK. Not gonna lie, I can’t remember when I grabbed Shifting Shadows at all. It was sometime during my Mercy Thompson spree. I bought a shitton of Mercy Thompson books…and then I stopped reading at book three. I didn’t dislike Mercy (like her a lot, actually) but I got distracted… Read more »

Review: Go Fetch! (Magnus Pack #2) by Shelly Laurenston

Review: Go Fetch! (Magnus Pack #2) by Shelly Laurenston

FREEEEEDOOOOOM! OMG. I did NOT enjoy this one. I didn’t care for Miki – though I appreciated her intelligence – so that killed the entire story for me. TBH, I only finished so I could move on to the next in the series – OCD is real – and this… Read more »

Review: Dark Currents (Agent of Hel #1) by Jacqueline Carey

Review: Dark Currents (Agent of Hel #1) by Jacqueline Carey

I really can’t remember what encouraged me to read Dark Currents. I am a fan of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel’s Legacy series (at least the first six) but I’ve only tried one other book by Ms Carey and I didn’t enjoy or finish it (The Sundering) even though I found it… Read more »

Review: Baby Fever (A Real Man #3) by Jenika Snow

Review: Baby Fever (A Real Man #3) by Jenika Snow

So. It seems we’re back to having all teh babies again. It’s the whole breeding/babies/cumfest fantasy. I am learning this really is a thing. O_O I don’t know who is responsible but they need to be smacked up the back of the head. I mean, I decided to read Baby… Read more »
