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 »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Love is the Plan the Plan is Death by James Tiptree, Jr. (Alice Sheldon) -Narrated by Stefan Rudnicki)

Love is the Plan the Plan is Death is another of these stories that was MADE by the narration. Stefan Rudnicki stuck his big toe in this one. Seriously. If I were reading this in print, I wouldn’t have finished it. But Stefan Rudnicki gave a performance that left me… Read more »

Review: Lingus by Mariana Zapata

Review: Lingus by Mariana Zapata

OMG. No words. I loved Lingus. I really did. I loved Tristan and Kat together. I loved how gentle Tristan was with Kat and how gentle Kat was with Tristan. I loved Yoda. And all of the secondary characters, especially Zoey. In some ways, I felt the extreme slowness of… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady by Elizabeth Porter Birdsall (Narrated by Judy Young)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady by Elizabeth Porter Birdsall (Narrated by Judy Young)

A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady is a bit of an oddity in this selection of stories for the Women Destroy Science Fiction! special Issue. It…feels more Steampunk than anything else and I’ve almost always attributed Steampunk more to Fantasy than Science Fiction. Also, A Burglary, Addressed By a… Read more »

Review: Bending Bethany by Aria Cole

Review: Bending Bethany by Aria Cole

Bending Bethany was really, really “meh”. It was quick so I finished it but damn it was boring. I honestly can say that I barely remembered much about either of the characters – even while I was reading it. It’s another “big sports star meets regular girl” romance but unlike… Read more »

Review: Virgin (A Real Man #2) by Jenika Snow

Review: Virgin (A Real Man #2) by Jenika Snow

Virgin was…cute! A lot cuter than I was expecting, to be honest. I kinda love the whole idea of this big, oversexed and aggressive man staying virgin because he’d already found the love of his life. Adorable. I also loved the fact that the heroine’s parents didn’t bow to her… 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: Kicked by Celia Aaron

Review: Kicked by Celia Aaron

Trigger Warning: There is an attempted rape in this story but it is stopped before anything happens. I feel I need to start this review with admitting to a little bias: I dislike New Adult (NA) as a genre. I dislike almost everything about NA (which seems centered around college-aged… Read more »
