2022 Book Review: A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess A Science Fiction, 1962 by William Heinemann LLC, 213 Pages What I Didn’t Like: The slang takes some getting used to. My advice if you’re struggling? Check out the audiobook at least until you get a grip on the voice. The narrator does a great job of using inflection... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Revenge of Queen Rose

Revenge of Queen Rose by Valinora Troy MG Fantasy, 2022 by Disresponsible Nodpots, 234 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Some slower parts. Nothing extreme, but there are parts that move slower than others. Paul’s chapters. They’re not particularly my favorite, although they throw back to the first book. I probably could’ve done without his portions altogether. Not... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Parasite

Parasite by Mira Grant A Horror, 2013 by Orbit, 504 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Pacing. This one is basically an Act 1 to what will likely be an interesting story. But this one is a little slow and a little drawn out. Not horror. More like scary science fiction that deals with science we shouldn’t... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Ternary

Ternary by Kristin L Stamper YA Science Fiction, 2021 by NineStar Press, 285 Pages What I Didn’t Like: One anticlimactic scene. Thankfully it was only one. But we built up to what felt like a big moment and then just POOF it was over with one line. The beginning caught me off guard a bit because... Continue Reading →

The Book of Two Ways by Jodi Picoult A Contemporary, 2020 by Ballantine, 416 Pages What I Didn’t Like: Content warning: extramarital affairs, major accident. Jodi Picoult books are always full of things that make you question your own beliefs and face things that are major issues in our society. This one uses a serious... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Meddling Kids

Meddling Kids by Edgar Cantero A Horror, 2017 by Doubleday Books, 322 Pages What I Didn’t Like: The random screenplay sections did not work for me. They didn’t work on audiobook and they didn’t work in print when I grabbed a copy to see if that would be better. I don’t understand what they were... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Lock In

Lock In by John Scalzi A Science Fiction, 2014 by Tor Books, 336 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: The opening “chapter”, while important, could easily turn people off. It’s the only chapter in the entire book written in a dry voice but I can see it giving the impression that the entire book is written... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: On the Come Up

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas YA Contemporary, 2019 by Balzer + Bray, 464 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: I didn’t connect with Bri like I wanted to. She struck me as spoiled and selfish and it irked me when she continued to hide stuff from the people in her life who obviously love... Continue Reading →
