• Review: A Little April Fools by Haley Monroe

    Gosh. I am such a cover whore. Seriously, have a great cover and a semi-decent blurb...and you probably are already holding my money. This cover/blurb thing I have is a serious weakness. Case in point: A Little Aprils Fools

    A Little Apr...

    Legal Wolf's Mate is part of the Growl anthology but it can be purchased as a standalone here.

    I was rather excited about Legal Wolf's Mate: the blurb seemed right up my alley so its the only reason I read this anthology. I've not read a l...

  • 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...

  • Review: And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead by Brooke Bolander

    Ok. So, this is the 2nd short I've read by Brooke Bolander and the 2nd short that I've adored.

    I *think* that I enjoyed "Our Talons Can Crush Galaxies" a little bit more than "And You Shall Know Her by the Trail of Dead" - but only because...

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: 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 »

Review: Rex Libris, Volume I: I, Librarian (Rex Libris #1-5) by James Turner

Review: Rex Libris, Volume I: I, Librarian (Rex Libris #1-5) by James Turner

When I learned there was a Librarian themed graphic novel, I had to try it. I know I’m not a fan of graphic novels but I felt confident I’d like this one. Well, I didn’t like this one – but not because it’s a graphic novel. I didn’t like it… Read more »

Review: The Collapsing Empire (The Interdependency #1) by John Scalzi

WOW. John Scalzi is quickly becoming one of my favorite Sci-Fi writers. I enjoyed reading The Collapsing Empire so very much, I have no words. I devoured this book in huge chunks and I was distracted at work all day yesterday – I was so anxious to get home and… Read more »

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 Meaning of Everything by Simon Winchester

Review: The Meaning of Everything by Simon Winchester

For English is a language that simply cannot be fixed, nor can it ever be absolutely laid down. It changes constantly; it grows with an almost exponential joy. It evolves eternally; its words alter their senses and their meanings subtly, slowly, or speedily according to fashion and need. Dictionaries that… Read more »

Review: A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers #2) by Becky Chambers *spoilers*

Review: A Closed and Common Orbit (Wayfarers #2) by Becky Chambers *spoilers*

I absolutely loved reading A Closed and Common Orbit. I enjoyed reading the sections on Pepper/Jane 23 more than on Sidra/Lovelace but when taken as a whole, I wanted to hug this book! I felt that A Closed and Common Orbit clearly exemplifies the idea of “if you can’t see… Read more »

Review: The Cloud Roads (The Books of the Raksura #1) by Martha Wells

Review: The Cloud Roads (The Books of the Raksura #1) by Martha Wells

I don’t have a lot of experience with Martha Wells – one short story (of the Raksura) and that’s about it. So, I had no real expectations as to how I would enjoy this book. And I did. By the end of the book, I found The Cloud Roads very,… Read more »
