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 »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Original Flash Fiction (1/3)

I took a small break from reading Women Destroy Science Fiction – I had to return the library book, lol. And YES. I know I own a personal copy…but there’s nothing quite like using a CD while commuting. Ease of use. This is my first time really reading “Flash Fiction.”… Read more »

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: 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 »

Review: Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley (Cowboys & Virgins #1)

Review: Branding the Virgin by Alexa Riley (Cowboys & Virgins #1)

Branding the Virgin is pretty cute but it barely reminds me of Lassoing the Virgin Mail Order Bride – which I appreciate. I want to say that Branding the Virgin has a lot more plot in it than most of the recent AR works which makes me excited! *big grin*… Read more »

Anthology Review: Hero to Obey by Various

Anthology Review: Hero to Obey by Various

Hero to Obey is another Kindle Unlimited read. I was only meh about this one at first and – of course – its a mixed bag – but I ended up enjoying it enough to (basically) finish up pretty quickly! That’s great for me when dealing with anthologies. It normally… Read more »

Review: Ordered By The Mountain Man (Modern Mail-Order Bride Romance #2) by Frankie Love

Review: Ordered By The Mountain Man (Modern Mail-Order Bride Romance #2) by Frankie Love

Ugh. IDK what it was about this one but…not a fan. I didn’t care for the heroine’s attitude (about marriage and about life) and I hated the way these people spoke to each other. I mean, every other word they (all) uttered made me feel like cringing. Sometimes when I… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Dim Sun by Maria Dahvana Headley (Narrated by Stefan Rudnicki)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Dim Sun by Maria Dahvana Headley (Narrated by Stefan Rudnicki)

I…have no clue what to say about this one. It’s…different. And I liked it! But there’s so much…unexplained. Dim Sun is a great short story that is structured around food – even the title is a play on Dim Sum: Dim sum is a style of Chinese cuisine prepared as… Read more »
