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.

2022 Book Review: Deadline

Deadline by Mira Grant A Science Fiction, 2011 by Orbit, 584 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Some slower spots. Not many and none without a purpose, but worth noting anyway.

2022 Book Review: It Starts With Us

It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover Fiction , 2022 by Atria publishing , 320 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: This is a sequel, a continuation of the first story (It Ends with Us).

2022 Book Review: Dead Until Dark

Dead Until Dark by Charlaine Harris A Paranormal, 2001 by Ace Books, 292 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: First instinct: the author seems obsessed with traditional beauty standards.

Marshmallows by Louise Willingham A Contemporary Romance, 2022 by Lost Boys Press, 146 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Warning if you need it: this is meant to accompany Not Quite Out.

2022 Book Review: Shadow Pandemic

Shadow Pandemic by HG Ahedi A Science Fiction, Independently Published in 2021, 292 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Some grammatical or typographical errors. None major and I was able to easily figure out what was meant. A little too much telling (vs showing). I would’ve liked a little more emotion.The big reveal felt a little rushed....

Seeds of Vengeance by Sylvia Nobel A Mystery/Thriller, 2007 by Nite Owl Books, 385 Pages  What I Didn’t Like: Grant and his entire storyline didn’t work for me. I didn’t like him, I didn’t like the way he made Kendall act, and I didn’t like Tally’s reaction to him.There’s an unusual amount of car accidents... Continue Reading →
