• 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 lost quite fre...

  • 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 abou...

  • 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 i...

    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 s...

  • 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...

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

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

Standard Deviant by Holly Schofield – Narrated by Cassandra Campbell – 2.5 stars “Standard Deviant” is rather long (for flash) with very little payoff. The majority of the story has the heroine hiding behind a car. She calls the car’s owner her boyfriend (but he’s not) but then says she… Read more »

Review: Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief by Katy Bowman

Review: Every Woman’s Guide to Foot Pain Relief by Katy Bowman

I first learned of Katy Bowman in a very roundabout fashion: my stylist and I were discussing women’s health issues – specifically diastasis recti – and how there appears to be a dearth of easy to locate information. So I decided to research diastasis recti workouts and books. And I… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Original Flash Fiction (2/3)

#TrainFightTuesday by Vanessa Torline – Narrated by Jamye Méri Grant with Cassandra de Cuir, Gabrielle de Cuir, John Allen Nelson, Molly Underwood, and Judy Young – 3.5 stars “#TrainFightTuesday” is…strange. It’s a hard one to read via audio, for sure. “#TrainFightTuesday” is written in Twitter (but called Patter) and it… Read more »

Review: Old Man’s War (Old Man’s War #1) by John Scalzi

I’ve followed Scalzi’s blog for years and I quite like the man. I think this is why I find it ironic that I’ve never read any of his work – until now. In the space of two months my bookclub has read two books by Scalzi…and I’ve enjoyed both. I… Read more »

Review: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (Inheritance Trilogy #1) by N.K. Jemisin

I purchased my copy of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms in Sept 2011. This means that The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms qualifies for my 2017 The Mt. TBR Struggle is Real! challenge at 5 years, 6 months. I think I’m still trying to parse my feelings toward my read of The Hundred… Read more »

Review: Cry Wolf (Alpha & Omega #1) by Patricia Briggs

So far I am LOVING the Alpha and Omega series! I love, love, LOVE Anna and I still like Charles. I do have to say that Charles’ father sound much more interesting that Charles right now…but I digress. The worldbuilding is pretty thorough but since it exists in an already… Read more »
