Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: The Lonely Sea in the Sky by Amal El-Mohtar (Narrated by Gabrielle de Cuir)

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: The Lonely Sea in the Sky by Amal El-Mohtar (Narrated by Gabrielle de Cuir)

The Lonely Sea in the Sky is…different but enjoyable. The story is narrated by multiple narrators with Gabrielle de Cuir providing the voice for the main character. I have to say, Gabrielle de Cuir is fast becoming my favorite narrator – the pure emotion is outstanding. Especially when she voices… 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 »

Review: The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet (Wayfarers #1) by Becky Chambers

The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is one of the best group reads I’ve had all year! I truly enjoyed this read – even though I didn’t expect to at first. The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet is a…difficult book to categorize. When I’ve tried to… Read more »

Review: Wrecked (Iron Seas #3.4) by Meljean Brook  *light spoilers*

Review: Wrecked (Iron Seas #3.4) by Meljean Brook *light spoilers*

Wrecked is #3.5 in the Iron Seas series by Meljean Brook. I’ve only read the first full length in this series and now two novellas. Strangely, I do have book 2(?) at home waiting to be read. So. Wrecked. The Iron Seas series is sorta…Steampunk Fantasy Action Romance. Yes. That…. Read more »

Review: Shielding Lily by Alexa Riley

Review: Shielding Lily by Alexa Riley

I liked Shielding Lily! Unlike a lot of other recently AR books, Shielding Lily is longer and has a lot more of a plot. There are conversations between the H/h and time passes. The MCs don’t have sex within the first 5 mins of meeting each other. OMG. LOVED IT…. Read more »

Review: The Perfect Stroke (Lucas Brothers #1) by Jordan Marie

I really enjoyed The Perfect Stroke! I’ve been hitting Kindle Unlimited pretty hard lately – I really want to get more out of it than endless Alexa Riley books (I think I’ve decided that AR is like Pokémon – “gotta read them all” LOL). Most of the stuff I’ve been… Read more »

Review: Under Locke by Mariana Zapata

Review: Under Locke by Mariana Zapata

Mariana Zapata is the Queen of High Tension/Slow Burn and she broke me with this one. Though I have to say that the blurb for Under Locke was not well done. It does not really explain that Under Locke is a safe MC book and that Dex is a member… Read more »

Review: Entreat Me by Grace Draven

Review: Entreat Me by Grace Draven

I first met Grace Draven via an anthology, Darkly Dreaming, that began with Ms Draven’s Master of Crows (which I adored). I then went on to purchase every.single.book by Grace Draven that I could get my grubby little paws on…even though I didn’t get around to reading them. I currently… Read more »

Review: God Is Disappointed in You by Mark Russell & Shannon Wheeler (Cartoonist)

Review: God Is Disappointed in You by Mark Russell & Shannon Wheeler (Cartoonist)

God Is Disappointed in You is a shortened and comedic re-writing of the entire Bible. Yup. You read that correctly. It’s ok to be wrong once in a while. How stupid you look when you’re wrong is directly proportional to how certain you were right. A wise man will always… Read more »
