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 »

Review: Earthrise (Her Instruments #1) by M.C.A. Hogarth

Review: Earthrise (Her Instruments #1) by M.C.A. Hogarth

I’m not really sure how I feel about Earthrise. I went through several stages of emotions while reading and…they just don’t add up. Earthrise is the first book in the Her Instruments series. I initially started reading because I was drawn to the cover. Several friends on GR have been… 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: 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 »

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: His Little Runaway by Emily Tilton

Review: His Little Runaway by Emily Tilton

I’ve slowly started getting into Ageplay but it doesn’t always work for me. This is one of those times. I really didn’t care for His Little Runaway and it felt more like dub-con than Ageplay. The heroine is 18 y/o and has run away from Juvvie. Why? Because the Warden… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Canth by K.C. Norton (Narrated by Gabrielle de Cuir)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Canth by K.C. Norton (Narrated by Gabrielle de Cuir)

Canth is another odd one. Canth is both the title of this story and the name of the MC’s submarine-like vessel. The MC of Canth is chasing her ship. Somehow it started without her but since it is a perpetual motion machine, it never stopped. The majority of the story… Read more »

Review: When I Make You Mine (The Richmond Series #1) by Rae Daniel

Review: When I Make You Mine (The Richmond Series #1) by Rae Daniel

Hmm. When I Make You Mine was cute and had some funny moments. Hilarious, it was not. I liked Dr. Jim quite a bit, for the most part. For the most part, this one was…ok. I enjoyed it. I thought that Jim was a total douchebag asshole in the ending… 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 »
