2022 Book Review: Imperfect Girl 1

Imperfect Girl 1 by NisiOisiN YA Manga, 2017 by Vertical Comics, 200 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Our narrator is a wet noodle. So many mistakes were made here it’s shocking. This guy does everything wrong. No ending. Get the second one because this is really an intro to what could be a good story.... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Lethal White

Lethal White by Robert Galbraith A Mystery/Thriller, 2018 by Mulholland Books, 650 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Too similar in pattern to the previous books in the series. Robin can’t sort out her confusing feelings, the case is dangerous, and they get involved anyway, and it all sort of wraps up the same way. I’m... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Until Next Year

Until Next Year by Michelle Angelle A Romance, Independently Published in 2021, 195 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Starting mid scene was jarring (in this case) and made me feel like I might have missed something. That feeling goes away quickly though. There’s a lot of characters thrown around at once with the many siblings... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Members of the Cast

Members of the Cast by George Beckman YA Historical Fiction, Independently Published in 2021, 265 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Some scenes are sort of skipped over and explained to us later (like the winter formal) making it feel a little lopsided in pacing. I would’ve liked to explore a few of those scenes in... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Blackout

Blackout by Mira Grant A Science Fiction, 2012 by Orbit, 512 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Did I expect that specific twist? Sort of (hard to miss the clue of the Becks incident in book 2). Did it still creep me out a little? Also yes. Still not sure where I stand on it. I’m... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: The Words

The Words by A. Jade (Ashley Jade)  Romance, Independently Published in 2022, 676 Pages What I Didn’t Like: There were points where the bullying and fat-shaming that Lennon had to endure were a little too much for me. I know it was essential to telling her story, but I discovered my line in this book. ... Continue Reading →

Let’s check.  Kingdom of Fraun Short Stories When I started NaNo this year there were 3 short stories in... Continue Reading →
