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: Us Against You

Us Against You by Fredrik Backman A Contemporary, 2017 by Washington Square Press, 448 Pages What I Didn’t Like: There are a lot of characters in this one (again, as there were in the first book in this duology, Beartown) so it can feel muddled in a few spots. I will say that I felt... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: The Body

The Body by Stephen King A Contemporary, 1982 by Scribner, 192 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: As always with King there are scenes that aren’t really necessary. They’re inserted to give the character realism and life but they always make you wonder if you really needed that information. They’re details about personal lives that fall... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Sidetracked

Sidetracked Sidetracked by SK Kelley YA Fantasy, 2021 by Bleeding Heart Books, 455 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Shades of stories you’ve heard before are definitely there. I wanted Jayde to have a bit more backbone. While it’s relatable (I’ll come back to that in a second) it’s definitely frustrating when she seems to shrink back... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Heroes

Heroes Heroes by Brendan Cupp (Editor) A Anthology, 2022 from Lost Boys Press, 385 Pages What I Didn’t Like: As with any anthology, there are a few stories that weren’t really my style. But I’m sure that’s different than the ones that would be YOUR style … and that’s the beauty of anthologies. There were definitely... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Sneak

Sneak Sneak by Evan Angler YA Science Fiction, 2012 by Thomas Nelson, 288 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: The chapters are further divided into sections. It works for keeping the chapters short and keeping the pace up, but it does make it seem like it’s jumping around a lot. It’s also confusing on the audiobook... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: Immortal Return

Immortal Return Immortal Return by Jessaca Willis YA Fantasy, Independently Published in 2021, 531 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: There were a few grammatical errors in my copy BUT I was working from an ARC so it’s likely these were fixed in the final. There’s a few “false” endings. By that I mean there are a... Continue Reading →

2022 Book Review: My Husband’s Wife

My Husband's Wife My Husband’s Wife by Jane Corry A Mystery/Thriller, 2016 by Penguin, 373 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Strange pace in the beginning. You could easily lose track of the plot at first or wonder why this is classified as a mystery/thriller for a bit of the story. Unreliable narrator. I’ll come back to... Continue Reading →
