Review: Penric’s Demon (Penric and Desdemona #1) by Lois McMaster Bujold

Review: Penric’s Demon (Penric and Desdemona #1) by Lois McMaster Bujold

So. I have a handful of Bujold books but I’ve never finished one before Penric’s Demon. I actually started reading Penric’s Demon because Subterranean Press had a sale. Penric and the Shaman (Penric and Desdemona #2) was one of the books on sale so I decided to read the first… Read more »

Review: The Zero Stone (The Zero Stone #1) by Andre Norton

Review: The Zero Stone (The Zero Stone #1) by Andre Norton

The Zero Stone is a magical book for me in some ways. I first ran into The Zero Stone (and Andre Norton) in elementary school. I was a voracious reader even then and apparently, my elementary school had a fabulous catalog. At the time I read The Zero Stone, I… Read more »

Review: We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse #1) by Dennis E. Taylor

Review: We Are Legion (We Are Bob) (Bobiverse #1) by Dennis E. Taylor

I adored We Are Legion. The Bobs are a lot of fun – though I prefer Bob 1.0 (or is that Bob 2.0?). I have to say, I’m really running into some great Space Operas. I have high hopes this trend will continue. The beginning was only sightly slow but… Read more »

Review: The Billionaire Wins the Game (Billionaire Bachelors #1) by Melody Anne

Review: The Billionaire Wins the Game (Billionaire Bachelors #1) by Melody Anne

There’s not really much to be said. The Billionaire Wins the Game follows the same of format as a typical Harlequin – but I think it’s closer to the Romance line than the Presents line. I can’t say that I particularly enjoyed The Billionaire Wins the Game – I was… Read more »

Review: The Unyielding (Call of Crows #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Review: The Unyielding (Call of Crows #3) by Shelly Laurenston

Well, it was bound to happen at some point or the other. We’re three books into this series (Call of Crows) and 4 books into this universe (Hunting Season, The Unleashing, and The Undoing) so a clunker was bound to happen. I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Unyielding. I… Read more »

Review: After the Crown by K.B. Wagers (The Indranan War #2)

Review: After the Crown by K.B. Wagers (The Indranan War #2)

I love Empress Hail: I took the glass. “To vengeance.” [Redacted] raised his glass. “I have seen that look before. I would have pity for those you seek, but for the fact that I know they deserve whatever you have planned. May you find your revenge and may it taste… Read more »

Growl Anthology Review: The Alpha’s Woman by A.C. Arthur

Growl Anthology Review: The Alpha’s Woman by A.C. Arthur

Surprisingly, The Alpha’s Woman was my favorite read in the Growl Anthology. I say “surprisingly” because I read this anthology because Eve Langlais (which didn’t quite work out the way I’d hoped). To be honest, I’d planned to chuck the rest of the book back to the library as a… Read more »

Review: Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata

Review: Dear Aaron by Mariana Zapata

Dear Aaron was sweet and lovely, to be honest. Dear Aaron is written in email and messenger format for the majority of the book. And it got to be just a little annoying after some time. But I adored Aaron and I loved Ruby. While I really enjoyed Dear Aaron,… Read more »

Review: All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

Review: All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries #1) by Martha Wells

I loved All Systems Red. The very first chapter let me know that I was really going to enjoy this ride. And I did. I COULD HAVE BECOME a mass murderer after I hacked my governor module, but then I realized I could access the combined feed of entertainment channels… Read more »

Review: A Nameless Witch by A. Lee Martinez

Review: A Nameless Witch by A. Lee Martinez

I found A Nameless Witch to be…cute. I liked the MC and I enjoyed the story but it did not pull me in or get me emotionally invested. I enjoyed the way the story turned some tropes upside down – especially the “witchly” tropes. The MC is an accursed witch…so… Read more »
