Book Review: WAYWARD SON

Title: Wayward Son Author: Rainbow Rowell Stars: ★★★★ (4 stars) After a thread disordered itself on Twitter, I remembered I do have a blog for these things, so spoilers are ahead - vague but definitely there. My biggest issues with this book come in that neither Penny nor Baz seem to make very important connections - ones which... Continue Reading →

BookSprout

As I'm prepping the launch of CONQUEST RISING (January 2020), I've been looking for a new way to distribute my ARCs. Advanced Reader Copies (ARCs) are a great way for authors to get word about their book churning around the internet before launch day, and matched with a pre-order, they can bring in sales. However,... Continue Reading →

Channillo and Where I’ve Been

After a few posts in July, I ended up getting swept away this summer, and I thought it was about time I get back in the saddle and let you all know what's going on. Currently, if you want more frequent updates, I'm publishing weekly over on Channillo. I have a series there which gets... Continue Reading →

Review: Red Sister

Title: Red Sister Author: Mark Lawrence Stars: ★★★★ 1/2 (4.5 stars) While I've followed Mark Lawrence on Twitter, I actually hadn't read anything he'd written, but my brother recently picked up this book (and subsequently powered through the city). He hasn't stopped talking about it since, so when I needed a book for a flight, I picked up Red... Continue Reading →

Review: WAR CRY

This is a August 2018 release sent to me by Macmillan.  Title: War Cry Author: Brian McClellan Stars: ★★★★ From studying English in university to reading any advice on writing I could get, I have seen one quote more often than any other: "Don't tell me the moon is shining, show me the glint of light on broken...

Review: Vengeful

This is a September 2018 release sent to me by Macmillan.  Title: Vengeful Author: V. E. Schwab Stars: ★★★★★   The second in Schwab's Villain series, Vengeful gripped me tight and wouldn't let go. I loved Vicious (Bk 1 in the series). It's marketing lines were aimed right at me, and everything I love about complex villains (Leonard Snart, Loki, Killmonger,... Continue Reading →

Review: Aru Shah and the End of Time

Title: Aru Shah and the End of Time Author: Roshani Chokshi Stars: ★★★★ I hesitated to read this after reading The Storm Runner. However, I wanted an answer to my over-editing versus overdone trope (i.e. the Percy Jackson repetition). After Chokshi's book, I can say that it's neither. Unique and endearing, Aru Shah might just be my new favorite... Continue Reading →

Review: Working for Bigfoot

This review does not contain spoilers! Please keep them out of the comments as well. Title: Working for Bigfoot Author: Jim Butcher Stars: ★★★★★ As you all likely know, I'm a huge Jim Butcher fan. It's honestly amazing I haven't read this one before - but this was a fantastic view into the growth of Harry Dresden... Continue Reading →

Review: Arm of the Sphinx

This review does not contain spoilers! Please keep them out of the comments as well. Title: Arm of the Sphinx Author: Josiah Bancroft Stars: ★★★★★ I am of the belief that I could merely post my favorite quotes, and they would be reason to demonstrate why I rate Bancroft's work so highly. I could, but I won't.... Continue Reading →
