• 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...

  • 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 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...

Review: Dark Lord of Derkholm (Derkholm #1) by Diana Wynne Jones

DNF at 45% I’ve been sitting on Dark Lord of Derkholm for a while now. Initially I really liked it and found it humorous. It reminded me of Pratchett’s DiscWorld a bit (in its humor only). So color me shocked when I ran into a vaguely worded but pretty obvious… Read more »

Review: Penalty Clause (The Risqué Contracts #1)

Review: Penalty Clause (The Risqué Contracts #1)

Yet another *sick at home* read. This one was hot but it is strange. The hero decided to make this contract in order to trap the heroine so she could become his woman. Strangely, he could have tried saying “Hello” first, you know, since they hadn’t been introduced yet. I… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Like Daughter by Tananarive Due (Narrated by Jamye Méri Grant) *spoilers*

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: Like Daughter by Tananarive Due (Narrated by Jamye Méri Grant) *spoilers*

Trigger Warning: There is discussion of child molestation in the story and in this review. Like Daughter gutted me. It was unsettling and sad and just chock full of emotional WTF that I was in a bit of shock while reading. The MC of Like Daughter is Paige. Paige is… Read more »

Review: Stepbrother’s Rules by Renee Rose

Review: Stepbrother’s Rules by Renee Rose

Jeeze! This was hot, hot hot! and I enjoyed almost every bit of it. It was both sweet and hot. I loved Brad but I wasn’t quite as fond of LuAnn. Brad picks LuAnn up from school after she’s kicked out of the dorm for drinking, smoking and boys. Brad… 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, Don’t Go (Yeah, Baby #3) by Fiona Davenport

Baby, Don’t Go is book three in the Yeah, Baby series which is this (new?) sub-genre of breeding/pregnancy/baby craze that I did NOT know what a thing until…now. I mean, AR does it but her entire body of work is focused around insta-love and bodily fluids so I thought it… Read more »

Women Destroy Science Fiction! Anthology Review: A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady by Elizabeth Porter Birdsall (Narrated by Judy Young)

A Burglary, Addressed By a Young Lady is a bit of an oddity in this selection of stories for the Women Destroy Science Fiction! special Issue. It…feels more Steampunk than anything else and I’ve almost always attributed Steampunk more to Fantasy than Science Fiction. Also, A Burglary, Addressed By a… Read more »

Anthology Review: Hero to Obey by Various

Review: Baby Steps (Yeah, Baby #2) by Fiona Davenport

Review: Baby Steps (Yeah, Baby #2) by Fiona Davenport

This one I did not enjoy. Baby Steps stars a couple who meet and have sex BEFORE learning they are step-siblings. The only catch is that their parents died before they were introduced but after the [parents] married. The hero thinks the heroine is a gold digger and says and… Read more »

Review: When I Make You Mine (The Richmond Series #1) by Rae Daniel

Hmm. When I Make You Mine was cute and had some funny moments. Hilarious, it was not. I liked Dr. Jim quite a bit, for the most part. For the most part, this one was…ok. I enjoyed it. I thought that Jim was a total douchebag asshole in the ending… Read more »
