2023 Book Review: The Shroud

The Shroud by George Bachman A Fantasy, 2022 by Sublime, 398 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Wordy, often unnecessarily so. I don’t mind beautiful language and poetic descriptions but this was often a bit much.  Underlining. I could not figure out WHY certain words, phrases, or paragraphs were underlined. They weren’t linked in my ebook... Continue Reading →

2023 Book Review: Love From A to Z

Love From A To Z by SK Ali YA Romance, 2019 by Salaam Reads, 384 Pages  Note: I’m not Muslim so I can’t speak to the realism of the way these Muslim characters are written.

2023 Book Review: Broken Bonds

Broken Bonds by J. Bree Paranormal Romance, Independently published in 2021 , 418 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: There were no trigger warnings listed or suggested.

2023 Book Review: Truly Madly Guilty

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty A Contemporary, 2016 by Flatiron, 415 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: If you hate spoilers, skip this bubble. Content warning: drowning, death. Much of this one feels like nothing is happening. You’re essentially waiting to find out about something important but nothing much is happening, if that makes sense. ... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: ShegoraTH

ShegoraTH by Dima Tsyptsiura A Short Story Anthology, Independently Published in 2022, 120 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: The formatting is stilted and clumsy. It gives the narrative an odd pace. I can understand some strange line breaks for poetry but the flash fiction would’ve been better served in paragraph form. There’s nothing to grab... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Z Resurrected

Z Resurrected from Half Light Publishing A Horror Anthology, 2015, 315 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Not enough information from some stories. I’m specifically thinking of Riley V Resurrection which left me feeling completely lost. Is this really the fifth book in a series? That’s a weird choice for an anthology.  Not all equal. As...
