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 »

Review: Mo’ Meta Blues by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson & Ben Greenman

Review: Mo’ Meta Blues by Ahmir “Questlove” Thompson & Ben Greenman

DNF@45% I’m not really into music – by that I mean I am not an audiophile. I enjoy music and I have a large number of musician friends – who introduced me to wonderful music and informed my rather eclectic taste. But I don’t read books about musicians or music…. Read more »

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

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 »

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 »

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: Desiring the Forbidden (Desiring the Forbidden #1) by Megan Michaels

Review: Desiring the Forbidden (Desiring the Forbidden #1) by Megan Michaels

Desiring the Forbidden is a fairly sweet age play story. I enjoyed the dynamic between Sunni and Cade and I feel they make a good couple. I really appreciate the fact that Sunni is NOT a brat – I hate brats whether they are bratty subs or bratty Littles –… 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: Baby, You’re Mine (Yeah, Baby #1) by Fiona Davenport

Review: Baby, You’re Mine (Yeah, Baby #1) by Fiona Davenport

Kindle Unlimited and being sick does this to a girl, lol. So it’s starting to seem that baby romances are a thing. This I did not know. I’m used to the old trope of “first comes love, then comes marriage…” but this is full on baby desire. The guy is… 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 »

Review: Dance With Me, Baby (Yeah, Baby #4) by Fiona Davenport

Yet Another *I’m sick at home* Read Hmmm. When I first grabbed a copy of Dance With Me, Baby, I had no idea it was the final book in a series. O_O LOL. I liked Dance With Me, Baby – so quick of a read – because it was short… Read more »
