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: Ask Me No Questions

Title: Ask Me No Questions Author: Shelley Noble Stars: ★★★ I found this one difficult to get into despite my love for Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. The main character does hit the bored house-wife / widow with an adrenaline addiction and societal constraints fairly well; however, it is the disregard for such societal niceties which attracted me to Phryne Fisher....

Review: The Black God’s Drums

Title: The Black God's Drums Author: P. Djèlí Clark Stars: ★★★★ Like War Cry, this was a novella I got from Tor. Clark's protagonists are powerful women of African descent. It's honestly my first afrofuturistic tale. I never even knew the term until Tade Thompson used it, so I've got a deep dive into the terminology planned for my next down-time... Continue Reading →

This review does not contain spoilers! Please keep them out of the comments as well. Title: Six Pack : Gyration Author: B. W. Morris Stars: ★★★★ This is the sequel to Six Pack: Emergence, which I reviewed in December 2017. Tyler was my favorite character then, so when I received the sequel and read the back blurb, I...

Cover Reveal: HIGH SUMMONS

HIGH SUMMONS (Bk 1 in the Warlock of Rochester series) is up for pre-order, so I thought it was time to share the new cover art! I'm absolutely in love with this cover. The dark atmosphere and sinister runic circle emphasize the urban fantasy edge! Honestly, it more accurately reflects the manuscript, so I'm thrilled!... Continue Reading →

Review: Buddhist Inspirations

Stress has got me down, so I'm out looking for books about meditation and pure comedies. Recommendations appreciated.   Title: Buddhist Inspirations Author: Tom Lowenstein Stars: ★ Being raised Roman Catholic, I explored Buddhism during my late teens thanks to my parents wanting me to experience various religions before picking any single one. Eventually, I decided on agnostic, but... Continue Reading →

Review: Brief Cases

Title: Brief Cases Author: Jim Butcher Stars:★★★★ A new Dresden Files book came out, so of course, I had to read it. If you're looking for Harry Dresden's acerbic narration, there are a few stories which might disappoint; however, getting into the heads of other characters always is a joy for me. Butcher started strong with a... Continue Reading →

Review: Ohio

This is a August 2018 release given to me at Book Expo America. It is a nonfiction, so not really my usual fair. That being said -spoilers ahead. Title: Ohio Author: Stephen Markley Stars: ★★★ People experience events differently. The same moment from two different perspectives can sound worlds apart, so I didn't come into this book thinking... Continue Reading →

Review: The Real Lolita

This is a September 2018 release given to me at Book Expo America. It is a nonfiction, so not really my usual fair. That being said -spoilers ahead. Title: The Real Lolita: The Kidnapping of Sally Horner and the Novel that Scandalized the World Author: Sarah Weinman Stars: ★★★ This book isn't for the faint of heart. It'll... Continue Reading →
